Oh, OK then. Why didn't you say so. Their inability to predict is a clear indicator that their predictions are accurate.


Are you saying that current temperature trends are outside the model predictions?

It would. And it would be better if definitives weren't championed based on an inability to make confident predictions.

Right. Because that would be... uh... science.

Did you read anything that's been said? Climate is defined as the energy flows through earth systems. At small spatial and temporal scales these are chaotic and difficult to predict but this uncertainty DOES NOT APPLY TO THE LARGER, GLOBAL SCALE OR TO LONG TERM CLIMATE FORCINGS.

Yes! Here's the large-scale long-term record. Oh, wait; that's not temperature, those are ice levels! Please ignore that, it's too large-scale and long-term to be relevant; only shorter-term and smaller-scale trends are relevant, predictable, and um, scyents.

Exactly. If you people knew anything about Feng Shui you'd know this.
