Mark Twain on the Nature of Statistics
Mark Twain astutely noted that there are "Lies", "Damned Lies" and "Statistics" . I note that AlGore used statistical "tricks" to correlate global warming and CO2 content. He just neglected the time lag in the atmomspheric CO2 content to match it up with the temperature. Statistics and Politics are very much alive in Big Science. Don't believe for an instance that they (the scientists) are completely objective and "above the fray"
