Title: Bad Science
Url: https://personal.ems.psu.edu/~fraser/BadScience.html
Creator: Fraser, Alistair B.
Publisher: Pennsylvania State University. College of Earth and Mineral Sciences.
Description: Bad Science is Pennsylvania State University Meteorology Professor Alistair Fraser's attempt to debunk the misconceptions of well-understood phenomena perpetuated by teachers and writers. Bad science does not cover topics about which there is still controversy. Fraser provides his reasons for why it is difficult to "reeducate" the public about common misconceptions of science. Astronomy, chemistry, meteorology, and physics are the topics for which bad science myths are presented and debunked.
