Webbed Foot Award 2017

Every year as the year comes to an end we bestow our “Webbed Foot Award” on a worthy candidate. This year we are looking to do this by popular vote. Please send three candidates in order of merit with the first one being your prime choice to Joe.Schwarcz [at]

The award goes to the person who during the year has made the greatest contribution to pseudoscience by contorting, misinterpreting or just making up data to send people on a twisted and potentially harmful path. Please think about your candidates carefully.
