The bare truth of science:
1. Nobody believes a computational model except the person who built it.
2. Everybody believes an experimental measurement except the person who made it.

Is the coronavirus airborne? YES, according to 239 experts from 32 countries. But if so, why does @WHO still maintain that transmission by aerosols only happens after certain medical procedures? 1/xhttps://t.co/AJep0wqEzh

If people could see the invisible ways that masks prevent the spread of diseases like COVID-19, maybe more of us would wear them 😷.

My new video uses schlieren imaging to show why face masks protect us 👉 https://t.co/gnkP7mdu2l pic.twitter.com/gl4gjJOeRt

Rockets red glare and protests: Trump's Mt. Rushmore welcoming committee will include protesters at the July 3 fireworks event. Pyrotechnics in 90 degree heat over dry forest -- not a good idea, experts warn. https://t.co/uGK3X7UIwY w/ @eilperin @teoarmus

"The notion of being in a place where underpaid staffers are financially compelled to interact with unscreened and unprotected patrons seeking leisure is unacceptable to me on a very basic human level." https://t.co/VyQ0jZfjyk

Johnson saying the UK would be fine with an Australian deal. Australia does not have an EU trade deal. And, as @mrjamesob says, they have the same no deal as Outer Mongolia. But, somehow, saying the UK would be fine with an Outer Mongolian dead doesn't have the same ring to it.

The Rushmore/Trump fireworks show will paid for by South Dakota taxpayers, via a fund that's supposed to be restricted to economic development. During a pandemic and recession, "what we’re going to see is our economic development dollars go up in smoke." https://t.co/u5N5MuzxSI

I will never stop being angry about this. And no one should ever forgive Trump for this. More American deaths are on his hands than Bush, Obama, and Clinton combined. That’s not an opinion. It’s a mathematical fact. https://t.co/0nR04Lmmlz
