That Word, "Open-Minded"... use it, but I do not think it means what you think it means.

Some scientists and politicians proclaim that significant global warming will occur because of man-made carbon dioxide, CO2. However, the science of global warming has not been settled.

Uncertainty exists in this proclamation. It is based on computer calculations of at least 20 theoretical mathematical models predicting 20 different temperature increases. None of the models totally matches the Earth's actual temperature patterns. Forcing elements and feedbacks in the Earth's climate system that drive temperature changes are not well understood and it is currently not possible to isolate and determine their values.

So this is the new trope the spincyclists are trying on for size? Because we can't track a precise temperature increase, global climate change is not real?

Really? Really? You mean, it doesn't matter that ALL the models show a temperature increase to dangerous levels? That's not important? What's important that they, in some OCD fashion, must be precisely aligned?
