Sense and nonsense about science

Celebrity figures can influence others in attitudes to science but many have such fragile egos that they are ready to believe all sorts of nonsense. My favourite this year was Simon Cowell employing someone to introduce good energy into his new home.

Every year, the organisation Science About Science publishes a review of the previous year’s worst cases of public figures talking rubbish about scientific matters. You can read the 2012 review here.
