Alarming Ocean-Rise Climate Study Debunked in Days, But Nature Retraction Takes Year

Nic Lewis took just days to debunk some of the fundamental assumptions of a landmark study on ocean-rise that created alarming headlines around the world when the journal, Nature, published it in October 2018. It took nearly a year from when Nature learned of the statistical errors, until they formally retracted the Resplandy et al. paper on ocean heat uptake this week. Does the prestigious scientific journal’s peer-review process hold inherent bias? Would they be better off letting amateurs critique studies before they officially publish? And what do you tell your child whose teachers may place childlike faith in the scientific community’s preconceived conclusions?
