Sample size

A new "scientific" paper is out, hyperventilating that Global Warming
Climate Change Space Aliens whatever today's approved marketing name for ZOMG Thermageddon!!!1!!eleventy! will heat up the oceans and kill all the fish.

There's only one teeny tiny problem with the study: the sample size of the fish that were studied was two.  Yup, two fish.  I guess that's better than one.

Can we please just have every Progressive in the land shut up about the "Republican War On Science"?  This is drivel of a shockingly low caliber.  Please provide us with higher caliber drivel in the future.

UPDATE 6 June 2011 16:30: Weer'd Beard  has a must read follow-up.

Remember folks, .22 caliber drivel is simply ineffective. Your drivel caliber needs to start with 4 to work.

Which is more likely? Thermogeddon or the Zombacalypse.

So "Kill All the Fish" is really "Kill Two Fish?" FYI - at P.F. Chang's "Hot Fish" is catfish, for all you bottom-dwelling mud-sucker tilapia lovers.
