Like a house of cards, so to speak...
A scientific explanation is only a house of cards if you take it as a final answer. It's actually more like a house that's continually being enlarged. As a whole, it's remarkably sturdy.

"Try peer reviewed science."
ps:
Commentators sometimes write and talk as though peer review is science's "Good Housekeeping seal of approval." In fact, it has become a scandal-plagued irrelevance. As Lawrence K. Altman has noted in The New York Times,
Virtually every major scientific and medical journal has been humbled recently by publishing findings that are later discredited. The flurry of episodes has led many people to ask why authors, editors and independent expert reviewers all failed to detect the problems before publication.

This is like claiming that sometimes parachutes fail so therefore they are completely useless.

Plenty of things are not perfect, but despite that are useful.

Of course anti-evolution sites like your source, arn.org , will try and downplay peer-review. So will global warming skeptics.

Fact is that peer-review is necessary and useful filter to cut out most of the bunk out there.

What's with you and this anti-evolution thing. Is that what you are trolling for in a global warming forum?

The facts don't support it???
Where are you getting your facts? Almost all scientific establishment of the industrialized world support the IPCC's finding. Earth's average temperature is rising faster now than at anytime in the last 650,000 years (average as in ALL of the earth, not just China or anywhere else; the whole earth) as a result, the ice caps and almost all glaciers are melting right now. you can't say the earth's ice is not melting because there are satellite photos of ice caps disparaging and countless photos of glaciers that are not only disparaging but also have rivers of liquid water flowing through them.
This warming is the result of vast amounts of CO2 being pumped into the atmosphere by man(100 times as much as any other natural proses including volcanoes).
it not water vapor because water vapor has a very short atmospheric life time(about 10 days). the amount of water vapor in the the atmosphere is influenced by the temperature of the atmosphere. water vapor concentration levels response to and are amplify by any existing heating or cooling trends such as that cause by CO2.
The sun has been monitors for the last 30 years and has shown NO increase or decrease in output. So it's not the sun. if the sun is not warming, then there is no point in talking about other planets in own solar system.
I like global warming.Pretty soon I won't have to go to the beach...the beach will come to me.
