Charles Krauthammer: The myth of 'settled science'

Feb 20, 2014 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: The Indianapolis Star

I repeat: 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.

More gibberish. He's a doctor, not a scientist, and his argument is irrelevant. Sure, science is never 'done' but it can be settled (for now). Does it make any sense that, since NO science is ever 'settled' in his world, you cannot teach or devise policy on the basis of sound science???

Technically, even gravity is not 'settled science' but the laws of gravity are pretty 'settled' enough to use as a guide to policy on many things such as strength of construction in civil engineering. Throw out all 'facts' that have been researched because they are never 'settled'??

Then he goes into the typical denial (ie. the CRU has been 'flat') while not understanding what that MEANS. It is only in air temperature graphs, NOT surface temperature, and it is due to lack of coverage of the polar regions along with more storage of incoming heat in the oceans. But he is totally IGNORANT of this science.

He should go back to doctoring, assuming he does that better than he does science commenting.

Especially, skeptics predictions are too poor in accuracy:
