"Something very strange is happening in the Scientific community right now - something healthy. We see a rejection of Received Wisdom, and in particular of Received Wisdom imparted by a closed circle of the anointed few. We see demands to see the data behind the theory of Anthropogenic Global Warming (the assertion that mankind's burning of fossil fuels releases carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, triggering a runaway temperature increase)......"
As the man says...Read the whole thing.
It's what I have been saying for years. Real science can withstand being held up to the light, and can withstand having its data reviewed.
If the models are so good, then why can't we plug in data from the '50's, '60's, '70's '80's and 90's and get something resembling today's climate (check it out, you don't get anything like this years temperatures). So the models MUST be flawed.
But that doesn't seem to convince those who have drunk from the Kool-Aid glass of the ALGORE Church....Which I would not normally mind except that they are screwing with our economy and inconveniencing me greatly with no real proof that their messiah is correct. How many MILLIONS of dollar, (or Euro equivalent) have been spent on pseudoscientific research and half baked ideas to slow the (probably) nonexistent global warming?
Make no mistake, I run a diesel truck on used fryer oil, and my other car is a Prius....I hate waste, and I am cheap thrifty enough to recycle (that means re-use, not just throw in a container for someone else to deal with) nearly everything but toilet paper and toothpaste.
But I really don't think that the effort, capitol, and energy we waste on pursuing the global warming rabbit is productive, unless you think that keeping AL Gore's days busy with speaking engagements and a bunch of half assed "scientists" busy doing pseudoscience and pursuing government grant money as productive.
But hey, I am a skeptic
