Science isn’t Broken

In this election cycle I have new and interesting levels of anxiety. All the time. But I find comfort and solace in the data nerds over at fivethirtyeight. I have found their reporting like a warm blanket and a cup of hot chocolate by the fire in the middle of the blizzard that is the presidential election.

They are obsessed with data, and using data to answer questions whether in politics,  sports, or (this is new for them) science. Speficially, they recently posted a great article about how Science isn’t broken. Yes p-hacking occurs, but “what makes science so powerful is that it’s self correcting”.

Read about it over at fivethirtyeight!
