The stats in this piece represent a pretty devastating take-down of the “settled science” meme. Krauthammer also rounds out my view on this pretty well too:
" I’m not a global warming believer. I’m not a global warming denier. I’ve long believed that it cannot be good for humanity to be spewing tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. I also believe that those scientists who pretend to know exactly what this will cause in 20, 30 or 50 years are white-coated propagandists."
This too says it all:
"the very notion of settled science, which is nothing but a crude attempt to silence critics and delegitimize debate. As does the term “denier”…Climate-change proponents have made their cause a matter of fealty and faith. For folks who pretend to be brave carriers of the scientific ethic, there’s more than a tinge of religion in their jeremiads…"
This is beautiful. I wish I could have the kind of outlook on life this man had.
