The scientific methods are much more fundamental than the subject matter 
issues usually addressed by scientists within the specialized fields of 
science.  This article is not peculiar to  Radiation Safety or Risk 
Analysis.  But the issues discussed in this article are underlying 
fundamental elements of replication, experimental errors, and peer 
review for research in risk analysis, radiation safety, chemistry,. 
physics, and so on  These issues are especially relevant to the current 
controversies about anthropomorphic global warming (or whatever name the 
protagonists care to employ).

I believe that all concerned with an empirical science of climate would 
benefit from serious review of these principles and from renewed 
attempts to resolve these issues of understanding  how the world functions.

unfit, may eventually be judged to be colossal"

paleoclimate papers published in these papers that include dubious 
statistical methods and great [...]
