Science and the media
John's recent article on gaming and the media, strongly remided me of a video by the youtuber potholer54 called Why the media screw up science. He also has made a short comment on the recent claim made by the Daily Mail that the earth was cooling instead of heating up. It really is quite astonishing how slack some journalists are when it comes to verification of their sources.
potholer's notion is - just like John's - check the sources. While doing nothing else than checking sources and thus debunking creationist, climate scetpics and conspiracy theorists nonsense, his videos are wildly entertaining and informative to watch. So, I thought I would share.

I'll have a look at this later, as being a scientist I'm always interested in this sort of thing, if only to sigh and shake my head!
