Actually, Dr. Ridd was not accused of cherry picking, but was accused of and fired from his tenured position for,This is good news, if true....but I'd like to see a peer review or consensus on Dr. Ridd's research and so far there doesn't appear to be any. Apparently, he's been accused of cherry picking the data from other research papers to draw his conclusion.

The same goes with material found by the faithful to the AGW dogma.Do I trust a random youtube video coughed up by a denier, or consensus among peer-reviewed papers?
It's a conundrum. I mean, if you need a heart valve replaced, who do you go to? The best cardiovascular surgeon at MGH, or your neighbor's landscaper? Decisions, decisions. . .

That material if full of misrepresenting the facts, and twisting the truth.
Can't just blindly trust any material for an issue that is contentions. AGW has fallen into then integrity of politics and religion.
Too bad most people on their side trust the pundits, and don't do any fact checking.
The fly criticizing the swatter.Ridd is a liar and a paid for hack
You should read the wording of the actual papers vs. what the pundits claim the scientists say in their papers.It's not blind trust. It's deference to expertise and an aversion to CT. I have no reason to think that thousands of scientists devoted their lives to perpetrating a hoax to get grant money. My MD dad and PHD mom started out working in labs. It ain't lucrative. You get paid a sum and you have to decide how much goes to the project and how much goes to eating dinner.
I'm an expert in appellate law in MA. I want to be deferred to when I say some shit with an explanation about that law. I'll defer to a consensus of scientists until I have a reason much better than you lot throw out (suspicions about money, usually, that don't make sense because if AGW scientists get their way THEY pay more in taxes too). Until then I"m not gonna pretend I know more about stuff that takes decades of training and experience to become an expert on.
Yes, and . . . ?Ridd’s speaking tour has been hosted by regional branches of the sugarcane growers peak body, Canegrowers, and the Australian Environment Foundation, a charity set up by the rightwing thinktank the Institute of Public Affairs, with strong links to the agriculture and fossil fuel industries.
