2014 is Global Warming’s Worst Year Ever
Once we deal with climate change in the solar system, we can control climate change on earth.
Check it out:
This year has been the worst ever for global warming–er, climate change. Not just because temperatures are near record lows for much of the eastern United States, but also because the western states have been warm and dry. That has led foolish politicians to claim that both the cold and the warmth are evidence of a scientific theory that few of them could actually explain if you asked them. Whatever happens, it’s “climate change,” because even the extreme cold must have been caused by some kind of heating somewhere else in the world.
Philosopher Karl Popper described the essence of a scientific theory as “falsifiability”–i.e. it must be possible to conceive of a way to disprove the theory, so that its validity can be demonstrated and defended. Climate change, at least in popular discourse, is unfalsifiable. Everything is taken as proof that it is happening, and the repeated failure of sophisticated climate models to predict the actual, observed results is hardly noticed. Even the name of the phenomenon itself has been changed to fit the rather contradictory outcomes ascribed to it.
