The Disputed Science of Global Warming
-
It is still disputed whether carbon dioxide plays any part in global warming at all.

The SCIENCE is not in dispute. No scientists has successfully presented an argument that disputes it.

Those who argue that drastic action must be taken immediately to save the planet from human induced global warming depend upon the idea that scientific inquiry is complete and beyond dispute.
No more than the denialist that scream we are headed back to the caves, or who claim their psychic told them it was a scam depend on the scientific fact. The public debate for action or inaction has NO relevance to the scientific facts.

Douglas J. Keenan, who has published in the journal Theoretical and Applied Climatology provides an example showing this just is not so.

I don't know anything about that specific author or that specific paper. However, no single paper, not even by Roy Spencer, has much weight in the science forum. It is the combined evidence provided by tens of thousands of published authors and hundreds of thousands of peer reviewed papers that provide the 'weight of the evidence'. Your claim is not supported.

An amateurish effort. It hardly seems even well put together, and it certainly doesn't establish a scientific dispute over AGW theory.

Maybe you can sugget the author publish it in Nature or Science. That ought to be amusing..

PKB. You revise or misuse meanings so badly, nobody knows what you are saying half the time.

Even when you are saying nothing as now. I agree with the definition and there is no scientific dispute over AGW. That is, nobody has made a claim that AGW theory is flawed and backed it up with a significant peer reviewed paper. There IS no dispute among the climate scientists and every one else is just a member of the audience.

Not sure what the rest of your post is supposed to be about either. Probably trying to LOOK like you are saying something by posting random bits of dictionaries.

No revision or misuse involved.

That you don't understand is taken for granted, Mr Undoubtably Spelt Fourty.

Saying nothing would be nothing, not something.

If there's no dispute, you must be able to quote the numbers not in in dispute, but as you don't have them, there exists a dispute.

Nobody, as yet, has been able to quantify AGW, that's still in dispute.

Does that include you, Mr Undoubtably Spelt Fourty?

Why does that not surprise me?

Dictionaries compiled by, "epistemologists," Mr Undoubtably Spelt Fourty?
