I'm not going to post on NLP again, but I see Ben is running rings round Shaw on his theme of zombies. But then I don't understand what Shaw proposes to do about China. His ideas seem like a fantasy, and Robin has shredded them too, to the point that they are going ad hom against him having to do with evil big pharma (am I wrong to read that as a disguised attempt to undermine?).

I still think Shaw has a solution in mind that applies to any problem you'd care to pose. Same solution in all cases.

(Thanks Robin!)
Lewandowsky’s “Moon Hoax” paper has finally been published. I think I’ve got to the bottom of why Lew and Cook kept insisting that the survey had been publicised at SkepticalScience, when it clearly hadn’t. See

Brownedoff: force yourself to have another look at NLP. There's some entertaining stuff from Ben Pile and Geoff Chambers.

Questions in the House of Lords yesterday:

Earl Cathcart: My Lords, will increasing the use of biofuels increase or decrease the price at the pumps?

Earl Attlee: My Lords, my noble friend asks an important question. The obligation system increases the price of fuel at the pump. It is, in effect, a hidden subsidy, and it works in a very similar way to the renewables obligation for electric power.

Hidden subsidies? Oh dear me, no. What the noble lord meant to say was...

Wonderfully revealing slip by R4 Today presenter in an aside with Melvyn Bragg, who was trailing his discussion about water, the "second most abundant molecule". He couldn't remember what the first was, so she ventured "CO2?"

Only a Beeboid would think that!

Lewandowsky et al - "LOG12 "Nasa faked the moon landing..." paper now published in Psychological Science

Lewandowsky et al - "Recursive Fury... " (about LOG12) which IS published.. currently OFFLINE..

I am very interested to find out the exact status, and what happens next, and whether the journal will provide a public statement as to why. I know a number of concerns were raised about it, (including mine) But I think the exact reason offline is important. I will try to contact journal to find out and what happens next with it

Oh just one more thing :P

"British" Gas will not supply any of this LNG to the UK unless prices here are higher than everywhere else in the world ^.^

A quote from the original 2011 deal statement:

BG Group is continuing to pursue an expansion of the Lake Charles LNG terminal, located in Louisiana, USA, to provide natural gas liquefaction services. Authorisation has been received from the US Department of Energy (DOE) to export up to 730 Bcf of natural gas per year (approximately 15 mtpa) from the Lake Charles LNG terminal to countries that have a free trade agreement in place with the US. The DOE is currently reviewing an application to export natural gas from the Lake Charles LNG terminal to countries that do not have a free trade agreement with the US.

Following on from the post below:

Extracts from the actual newspaper included the following:

"It could hardly have been better timed. After days of headlines warning the UK was on the verge of running out of gas, Centrica came up trumps with a £10 bn, 20 year contract to export gas from America."
