‘Just the latest example of climate scientists using incorrect statistics’
Nature magazine has retracted a study on so-called “global warming” that claimed humans were creating warming in the oceans.
“We realized that our reported uncertainties were underestimated owing to our treatment of certain systematic errors as random errors,” the magazine said of the Princeton-authored piece. Scientist Nic Lewis, who pointed out the errors shortly after the study was published, said it was “just the latest example of climate scientists letting themselves down by using incorrect statistics.”
“The climate field needs to get professional statisticians involved up front if it is going to avoid this kind of embarrassment in future,” he said. Nature credited Lewis with helping it “realize” the errors.
