This Rob Dunbar is NOT Robin Dunbar the Archaeologist.

Rob Dunbar hunts for data on our climate from 12,000 years ago, finding clues inside ancient seabeds and corals and inside ice sheets. His work is vital in setting baselines for fixing our current climate — and in tracking the rise of deadly ocean acidification.

    Great stuff!
    Now, in regard to making people accept that science actually is about reality, and has consequences
    “Why ‘scientific consensus’ fails to persuade” (Crossposted from Ed Brayton´s blog):
    …so to get through to the not-completely-solipsistic segment of the conservatives, information needs to be presented in a way that does not immediately trigger inellectual “fight or flight” responses. Otherwise, stuff from those evil atheisty scientists will just be brushed away. And Rob Dunbar´s work will be in vain.
