Opening Arguments

A chill in the air

Well, duh, yes:

Could the best climate models -- the ones used to predict global warming -- all be wrong?

Maybe so, says a new study published online today in the journal Nature Geoscience.  The report found that only about half of the warming that occurred during a natural climate change 55 million years ago can be explained by excess carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. What caused the remainder of the warming is a mystery.

But telling that to a global warmist would be as useful as telling a fundamentalist that the Bible isn't the literal word of God.

Ah, a recent quote from my friend Nick Miller applies here:

Religion is like a really committed book club where you meet weekly and talk about the same book every time until you start confusing the book with reality.
