Only one-third of published psychology research is reliable – now what? August 28, 2015 by a finding occurs. It may surprise you to learn, then, that scientists do not often conduct – much less publish – attempted replications of existing studies. The bad news doesn't end there. Even when the new study found evidence for the existence of the original finding, the magnitude of the effect was much smaller—half the size of the original, on average. One caveat: just
"The goal is to inform the public, scientific community and media that the upcoming IPCC report doesn't have all the science to make informed judgments," said Jim Lakely, a spokesman for the Heartland Institute, a libertarian think tank based in The popular skeptic website Watts Up With That has also picked apart leaked drafts of the report and is publishing multiple stories a day chronicling how the new IPCC report is filled with "dodgy statistics" and "serious frauds.
