Dublin Skeptics in the Exchange – Martin Robbins

The next talk will take place on Sunday 15th July in the Exchange, Temple Bar.

Our Speaker on the night will be Martin Robbins a Berkshire-based researcher and science writer. He writes about science, pseudoscience and evidence-based politics… (Bio nicked from the Guardian website).

His talk will centre around the work he did last year tracking down homeopaths in East Africa for a documentary that’s in production at the moment.

It should be very interesting. All are welcome. As usual we shall be retiring to a pub nearby – either the Lord Edward or the Library Bar!

Science is a necessity, not a luxury

I am ashamed to admit that prior to this year I had not heard of the European Science Open Forum. I will use the fact that I am not a scientist as an excuse for this failing on my part. I was fully aware of Dublin being the European City of Science this year and it was because of this that I became aware of ESOF. Eyeing up the programme of events and reading into the history of the group only served to make me more ashamed that I had been ignorant of this group for this long. They are a true grassroots movement and their forum is one that brings together people from across the science and research worlds from both academia and industry to fantastic effect.
