Reality Checks: Don’t Drink and Sex, Turtles and the Real Paleo Diet, and the Continued Denial of Climate Change in the U.S.
- The CDC recommends women who can have children not drink unless on birth control. I really wish the focus were on reducing unplanned pregnancies rather than telling women not to drink because think of the children. (via USA Today)
- Some early peoples ate turtles. The press release speculates that children and the elderly harvested the turtles rather than going along on the hunt, this write up blithely changes that to women and children. Science reporting: turning an interesting find into assumptions of sexism. (via Eureka Alert)
- A recent US congressional hearing on climate change is heavily biased toward its nonexistence and how we shouldn’t do anything about it. (via Ars Technica
