Anthropogenic Global Warming and the Scientific Method

Sandy S michaelhart - all Fall snowfalls trending up, all Winter snowfalls trending up, all Spring snowfalls trending down. Conclusion? We're having more snow in the autumn and winter, but less in the spring. A seasonal shift perhaps, but not much else. Perhaps more learned folk than I can suggest something else.

This article by Betsy Gorisch, 'a professional geologist with an interest in current events', explains why we are mistaken if we think that the AGW/Climate Change movement is about a Scientific hypothesis or theory. It is reassuring to read it, and know that it can explained in such measured tones:

On the other hand no sign of snow becoming a thing of the past

Sandy, I have to say it looks unexceptional. Just like temperatures.

It was taking over what is, or should be, a thread where postings only provoke 2 or 3 responses. Seems to have died a natural death. FWIW I suspect no one will mind if you post a worthwhile discussion every week.

TBYJ: " He's certainly no warmist, he's one of us."

Do people get upset with EM, he's always struck me as a warmist who wants to challenge sceptics to make sure they know what they're talking about. We are probably on the same page about the science and what's happening, but the difference is that, I believe at least, EM does accept bad things will happen. I believe bad things are already, and always happening and would rather we put our energies into bad things happening now rather than trying to avert bad things that MAY happen in the future.

I am indeed a retired science teacher. The rest of your speculation is wrong, if entertaining. :-)

My family prefer me to use a nom-de-plume, They are professionals and my hobby speaking to sceptics occasionally popped up in Google searches researching them. If you really need a name, it is Richard. One commenter had the discourtesy to use my full name here, to the displeasure of my children. Since then I have stuck to EM.

I try to answer sensible questions if I know the answer.. Rhetorical "Have you stopped beating your wife" questions are best ignored.

SandyS Is a resource depletion discussion worthwhile? BOFA certainly does not seem to take it seriously. Feel free to set it up. Too many of the recent discussions already have my name on.

That Telegraph article has a consensual line of comments, with plenty of flak for Davey and Miliband Jnr. This amused me:

"Labour's American PR guru, David Axelrod, has (until recently) been following the wrong Twitter account - "Ed Milliband" - two 'L's."

I rather wish I'd thought of creating the spoof account, but on reflection, it would have been hard to invent anything that was more bizarre than real life!
