The climate alarmists keep trying to convince us that the Theory of Manmade Catastrophic Climate Change is settled science. Sorry, but it is not science at all. In scientific terms, it is not even a theory, but an unproven “hypothesis” that predicts manmade CO2 will drive temperatures “catastrophically” higher by the year 2100. It does not become a “theory” until actual data matches those predictions, 85 years from now! So far, though, the first 18 years of “testing” have seen EVERY ONE of the 48 computerized climate models FAIL to predict actual global temperatures (they predict too high) by significant margins. Predictions of more frequent and severe storms have likewise simply failed to appear. Calling it “Climate Change” to claim recent cold years as proof when the “theory” predicts only WARMING is comedy, not science.
For real science, we must defer to Al Gore, who discovers that the historical record—400,000 years of temperature and CO2 levels trapped in ice— shows that “they go up and down together.” The problem for the alarmists is that CO2 goes up about 400 years AFTER temperature rises, not before! CO2 does not cause global warming; global warming causes CO2! Finally, even if these alarmists and their computer models were 100% correct, and we drastically curbed our CO2 emissions by 50% (give up half of your driving, heating and electricity), global temperatures would be a negligible 0.07 degrees lower in 2100! And the costs of avoiding this phony-baloney "catastrophe" far, far exceed any possible benefit, by the alarmists' own reckoning. The only reason we’re still talking about this subject is likely the $22 Billion the US government spent in 2013 “promoting” the idea.
