When the paragraph of an op-ed piece on Global Warming begins…
Last week marked the 20th anniversary of the mass hysteria phenomenon known as global warming. Much of the science has since been discredited.
…I know I’m in for a treat.
Bret Stephens wrote a piece over at the Wall Street Journal called "Global Warming as Mass Neurosis" In the piece he highlights the science that acts like a big dose of CFC’s…ripping holes in the global warming ozone layer.
NASA now begrudgingly confirms that the hottest year on record in the continental 48 was not 1998, as previously believed, but 1934, and that six of the 10 hottest years since 1880 antedate 1954.
The most important portion of the article highlights the most serious flaw in the global warming crisis mentality. Stephens comments on the fact that 3000 deep ocean robots have actually measured a decrease in ocean temperatures over the last 5 years.
If even slight global cooling remains evidence of global warming, what isn’t evidence of global warming? What we have here is a nonfalsifiable hypothesis, logically indistinguishable from claims for the existence of God. This doesn’t mean God doesn’t exist, or that global warming isn’t happening. It does mean it isn’t science.
It’s just not science.
This leads me to the ultimate question.
How can so many have absolute, unwaivering and ironclad belief in something unprovable? I guess they just have faith.
