WSJ: We can’t trust climate science because neutrinos might go faster than light:

Someone at the Wall Street Journal read a press release about a scientific finding! And then decided that since people are evidently still discovering things, climate science is probably going to turn out bullshit . Last month, scientists at CERN, the prestigious high-energy physics lab in Switzerland, reported that neutrinos might—repeat, might—travel faster than the speed of light. If serious scientists can question Einstein's theory of relativity, then there must be room for debate about the workings and complexities of the Earth's atmosphere. Hey, why stop there? If serious scientists can do a single as-yet-unreplicated experiment casting doubt on relativity, then there must be room to debate something as complex as the human body and genetic inheritence. Let's get evolution back on the table, guys! Also, gravity! And electronics, that shit is tricky -- if CERN can fin...
