Is the Science Settled ?

By steven d keeler | Mar 03, 2014


It has been often said that the “science is settled” on the issue of CO2 and climate. Let me put this claim to rest with a simple one-letter proof that it is false.  The letter is s, the one that changes model into models.

If the science were settled, there would be precisely one model, and it would be in agreement with measurements.  Alternatively, one may ask which one of the twenty -some models settled the science so that all the rest could be discarded along with the ( continuing ) research funds that have kept those models alive.
We can take this further. Not a single climate model predicted the current cooling phase. If the science were settle, the model (singular) would have predicted it.
