I am, however, growing tired of "trolling" your stuff AJ and I do
apologize for the trolling aspects of my posts.
If you only study stuff that confirms what you already know
you will find to your satisfaction that you are always right.
I admire your ability to live in certainty because I cannot.
Google Dunning-Kruger effect. I am sure you have an area of expertise
and climate study ain't it. ...cheers
Well said! Does it not cut both ways too? Have you read that book? If so how does it fail? If not, can one really say that having read it they couldn't reach a different conclusion?
One very interesting thing concerning those few challenges to global warming I mentioned is that each reputable scientist expert in those particular areas agreed that there was a consensus that man-made global warming existed but that in their particular field of expertise, like Mann's short-comings in statistical expertise, or hurricane/tropical storm activity, or artic/antartic melting, there was no evidence supporting the global warming consensus. You see they all yield to the consensus in fields outside their expertise and accepted that consensus; just not in the areas of which they know. The fact is one doesn't need to be a climatologist to understand the argument is hardly settled and that there is no single person or panel who can claim the final say. In science there are not proven theories but theories awaiting to be disproven.
