The Science is Settled: Except When Reality Meets Climate Change Theology

Editor’s Note:  This list and comments appeared on Anthony Watts website: Watts Up With That, and there’s much more there. 
  • "You cannot prove a vague theory wrong. If the guess that you make is poorly expressed and the method you have for computing the consequences is a little vague then ..... you see that the theory is good as it can't be proved wrong. If the process of computing the consequences is indefinite, then with a little skill any experimental result can be made to look like an expected consequence." Richard Feynman
Intentionally Vague?.....Global warming caused by human carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions has become climate change and extreme weather events, as if they have never occurred before, Climate change has been happening for hundreds of millions of years, and humans have long termed unusual events as extreme. There is nothing happening today that cannot be found in the historic record. The climate establishment knows this, and places artificial constraints on the historic record. Such actions can be seen in the reports of the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), which places constraints on the historic record by statements such as since 1950 or after the industrial revolution (about 1750 leaving out the worst of the Little Ice Age and the prior warm period)…..We should……. "express thanks for the failures of Kyoto and Copenhagen. Had the proposed regulatory regimes been implemented and had CO2 emissions decreased, the 'pause' would certainly have been attributed to the regulations. Politicians and environmentalists would be declaring the science to be truly 'settled.'" See link under Seeking a CommonGround.
