Here‚Äôs more proof that the climate change/global warming ‚Äúscience‚ÄĚ is always considered settled ‚ÄĒ unless it‚Äôs not:
Scientists made key errors in study of how fast the oceans are warming https://t.co/cdpyyVHggM

Confirmation bias? You make the call:
"Scientists behind a major study that claimed the Earth‚Äôs oceans are warming faster than previously thought now say their work contained inadvertent errors that made their conclusions seem more certain than they actually are." https://t.co/d9c3ts6GIO

‚ÄúUnfortunately, we made mistakes here. I think the main lesson is that you work as fast as you can to fix mistakes when you find them.‚ÄĚ https://t.co/vswvHXHCc8

Well look at that.
The errors aren't all the "inadvertent" when they're what you're desperately looking for, they're reinforcing. Which is why these "errors" weren't caught by anyone before being published in a peer-reviewed journal. https://t.co/cWqZO0SClN

So, when some scientists said that the study was being taken out context from what the data actually showed‚Ä¶and got called 'skeptics' for voicing that‚Ä¶.
‚Ä¶those scientists were right?
Again, this is why the knee jerk reaction of people on scientific papers is not helpful. https://t.co/2BTHLjMJWl

Something tells me this story willnot get nearly as much airplay as the UN climate report that came out a few weeks ago
