SkS Highlights

As to be expected, Dana's The 97% v the 3% – just how much global warming are humans causing? garnered the most comments of the articles posted on Skeptical Science during the past week. Deciding who should pay to publish peer-reviewed scientific research by John Abraham attracted the second highest number of comments.

  1. The New York Times is providing continuous coverage of the Climate Change March in New York City via the following article:

    Climate Change March Begins in New York City

  2. 310 000 people in New York ....

    ... 4 orders of magnitude less people in my district.

    I hope that elsewere in my city (Lima, Peru) there were better results.

  3. From Peru@2,

    Latest estimates in NY are 400,000. However other cities gathered much less. Ten times less: 40,000 in London. In my city of SYD, the number was so miserable "around 300 protesters", that it's simply shameful to repeat that news.

    Your district maybe smaller/less polluting than most Amer/Aus districts. With that perspective in mind, I consider SYD event an organisational failure because SYD, like NY is supposed to be one of the world most developed/biggest cities (i.e. the leading climate polluter) so having 3 orders of magnitude fewer demostration here is just disgraceful about its inhabitants.

  4. Well, the whole point is the NYC gathering is in response to the UN Climate Summit taking place in NYC.
