Salting the Warmist Slugs

There has been no global warming since 1998 – Telegraph Blogs:

No news here to anyone that has gone outside rather than staring at a computer model the last decade. "The Map Is Not The Territory" has been known for a very long time, but computer models are really colorful, interactive, and run on really cool computers.

The "fix" to at least the MODELS "global warming" is to have the Chinese burn more coal. Fine with me, but I doubt it will really be fine with the climate nerds after they get over their joy in having their computer model "right" -- meaning it may have a passing correlation to existing data. NOT that it is PREDICTIVE. The warmists really ought to pay more attention to that practical philosopher Yogi Berra -- "Predictions are hard to make, especially about the future".

Physicists do a great job of creating models that are VERY predictive at least within their scope, Even better, they tend to be aware of the bounds of that scope. Other sciences -- not so much, and even worse, they tend to totally not understand that other very important philosopher, Josie Wales ("Outlaw Josie Wales, Clint Eastwood): "A man's got to know his limitations".

So rank speculation based on computer models becomes "settled science" and anyone who disagrees with your model is beyond the pale. "Progressivism" constantly pushes to politicize all aspects of life -- family, death, birth, the weather, how much water you flush in your toilet, EVERYTHING ... even the weather. It used to be that "sports and the weather" were nice safe conversations. Thanks to the progressives, they totally did the weather topic in -- they keep trying to get sports as well with Indian names and such.

Dear God, please do something to free us from the progressives!!
