Andrew Kenny in The Spectator writes Judged on sheer evil, the worst crime in history was brown, the Nazi genocide, although the reds slaughtered more people. The death toll (difficult to measure) is roughly, Hitler’s holocaust 6 million, Stalin’s famine and terror 8 million, and Mao’s famine 30 million. But the greens have topped them…

More misinformation from junkscience.com

William Connolley catches junkscience.com claiming that Global Climate Models can’t recreate the temperature record of the 20th century. However, they can and its no secret unless you get your science from junkscience rather than actual scientists.

In my previous post I mentioned Daniel Davies’ demolition of yet another dodgy Steve Milloy article. Milloy attacked a recent JAMA study that found: Higher consumption of sugar-sweetened beverages is associated with a greater magnitude of weight gain and an increased risk for development of type 2 diabetes in women, possibly by providing excessive calories…

Steve Milloy misfires

Daniel Davies has some criticism of a Steve Milloy Fox News column that purported to debunk a study that found that sugary drinks were linked with weight gain and diabetes.

Milloy claimed: The reported 23% decrease in injuries is a pretty weak result-probably beyond the capability of the ecologic type of…

Milloy, at it again

A study that found a link between antibiotic use and breast cancer has been in the news and sure enough Steve Milloy has attacked it, calling it “baloney”. One interesting thing I’ve noticed about Milloy is the large number of people who independently come to the conclusion that he is full of it. In this…

Michael Peckham writes “Milloy’s criticism may be right some of the time, but only when it fits his preconceived anti-regulatory agenda. ” John Quiggin, at Crooked Timber and at his own blog observes that the link between Cato and Milloy reflects badly…

Steve Milloy, shill

Apart from the one or two posts about John Lott I’ve also posted about ozone depletion denial, creationism and astroturf. All these topics, as well as Lott, come together in the person of Steve Milloy. Milloy runs a website junkscience.com that purports to debunk “junk science”. Unsuspecting visitors might think that Milloy’s site is devoted…
