Global warming: USGS researchers quantify potential greenhouse gas...

Nov 4, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Summit County Voice

Scientists with the U.S. Geological Survey say they've quantified the amount of greenhouse gases that could be released into the atmosphere as Arctic permafrost starts to melt.

Gee, maybe ask a climate scientist?
Kaspar et al.(GRL, 2005) perform a comparison of a coupled general circulation model (GCM) with reconstructed Eemian temperatures for Europe. Central Europe (north of the Alps) was found to be 1–2 °C warmer than present; south of the Alps, conditions were 1–2 °C cooler than today. The model (generated using observed GHG concentrations and Eemian orbital parameters) generally reproduces these observations, and hence they conclude that these factors are enough to explain the Eemian temperatures.[3]

Exactly.

Yes, it does. Ignore ff aka fossil fuel.

Science is not "made of questions" despite what ff says.

Not really.

How do you describe an understanding? Science is about understanding of phenomena. Mathematics serve to express this understanding.

Why does ff argue about the science without prerequisite background? To confuse the public.

OK but tell that to Einstien.The science world was left in shock when workers at the world's largest physics lab announced they had recorded subatomic particles travelling faster than the speed of light – a feat that Einstein said was impossible.

If the findings are proven to be accurate, they would overturn one of the pillars of the Standard Model of physics, which explains the way the universe and everything within it works.

But researchers at the CERN lab near Geneva claim they have recorded neutrinos, a type of tiny particle, travelling faster than the barrier of 186,282 miles (299,792 kilometres) per second.

Since: Apr 08

Didn't you hear? It was found to be an error.

Equipment, I think.

Science worked well: when data and theory don't match, doubt the data first. ;-)

So who made the equipment? Was it Science theory, data, or man?

Man made equipment using data coupled with theory tested through science. Revisited years later to show man made equipment failed. Man made adjustments to the data formed a new theory tested again by science. Well no one knows what really came first the chicken or the egg.
