Never Settled

Fantasy and microchips
Shooting from the hip
--Oingo Bingo

A motto of the global warming crowd is that 'the science is settled.' As noted here, those who think scientifically know that science is never settled.

Whether due to the uncertainty associated with probabilistic analysis, blatant manipulation of data, or new discoveries that smash old paradigms, science is always on the move.

I heard it said recently that if the global warming thesis were presented in a courtroom, then the case would lose miserably on its merits. It should come as no surprise that partisans have not presented global warming 'science' to the public at large as many would not find it credible. Instead, they trot out 'experts' who merely endorse the concept in order to lend an air of legitimacy to the cause.

When science is claimed to be settled, be wary--particularly when the proposed solution is more government power and less liberty.
