“McKitrick: Toronto smog models exaggerate health issues – where are the bodies?” Anthony Watts reports that discredited researcher Ross McKitrick has found an off-beat journal, Environmental Modelling & Software, to publish his paper about the health impacts of smog based on 16 year-old air pollution data. He’s also cemented his research with a newspaper editorial in the National Post newspaper.
His conclusion? Hardly any impact on health, even though all the earlier studies find impacts. Could it be because McKitrick only looked at hospital admissions and not at, you know, deaths? He’s proven very good at intentionally looking past evidence.
Oh yeah, Anthony’s contribution has been the usual vigorous application of the “copy” and “paste” commands.
