Corrections and apologies

(16 July)

On p.233 of Why We disagree About Climate Change, in Box 7.1, I make the statement “Risbey goes on to accuse those who do not adopt such urgent language in their descriptions of the science as failing in their civic duty in inform the public, a ‘scientific reticence’ which falls short of the standards of impartial communication”.  This statement is untrue.  Although some commentators and advocates have claimed this, James Risbey has not done so in this article, nor elsewhere to my knowledge.  I apologise for the error.
