There are at least a dozen differences between man-made global warming (AGW) and
real science. While science follows a defined scientific method, AGW uses political
campaign tools like polls, demonizing opposition, scare tactics, deception, and propaganda.
Real science says "Question everything". AGW says "Questioning AGW is reckless because
it threatens the planet."
Real science never ends, but is an ongoing cycle of testing and correction. AGW tries
to break that cycle by claiming "the debate is over" and "the science is settled".
"SETTLED SCIENCE" IS AN OXYMORON invented by non-scientist Al Gore to avoid debating
his profitable beliefs in public. http://physics.ucr.edu/~wudka/Physics7/Notes_www/node6.html
Real science develops hypotheses that are falsifiable via testable predictions. AGW
ISN'T FALSIFIABLE because it makes contradictory, changing predictions. More hurricanes
(see Al Gore's movie cover) or fewer hurricanes (reality now attributed to AGW),
more snow or less snow, warmer or cooler than average temperatures, etc. are all
cited AFTER the fact as proof of AGW. There is no observation that AGW proponents
will accept as refuting their belief. Predictive models created by warming proponents
are consistently wrong: http://wattsupwiththat.com/2010/12/05/new-peer-reviewed-paper-shows-just-how-bad-the-climate-models-are/
Real science doesn't claim validity by citing the credentials of proponents. It respects
only data and analysis, regardless of who is publishing it. Einstein was a little
known patent office clerk when he overturned the consensus understanding of space
and time in 1905 with Special Relativity. “It doesn’t matter how beautiful your guess
is or how smart you are or what your name is. If it disagrees with experience, it’s
wrong.”-Richard Feynman, Nobel Prize Physicist
Real science doesn't create billionaires who get rich peddling untested theories.
Real science tries to account for all interfering variables in studies. AGW simply
ignores all the variables that have drastically impacted Earth's climate for billions
of years unless those factors are needed to excuse faulty predictions.
