Thankfully, the anti-science propaganda campaign surrounding man-made climate change seems to have lost some of its effect.

Are you seeing storm clouds on the horizon? Two recent studies suggest that the latest anti-science campaign is following its forerunners--the propaganda campaigns attempting to refute science that tobacco causes cancer, that CFC's caused the hole in the ozone layer, and so on—into oblivion. Global warming denial seems to have climbed to a peak in 2010, and global warming acceptance is now climbing. This bodes well for rational public policy.

“To be proven, something needs to be demonstrable and repeatable.”

That’s absurd. If that were true, we could never prove something that could only happen once. Suppose Clyde killed Moira. According to your definition, we couldn’t prove it because Moira could not be killed again. Sure, you could have Clyde kill Truman, but contrarians like you could always argue that it wasn’t the same because Truman isn’t Moira.

You’d better stick to the childish insults, Tiredofit. It’s the only way you can win. If you step into the field of rational discourse, you lose every time.

Will you accept scientific evidence?

Tiredofit

You have all evening to lay out your proof. Ill check back tomorrow.

Tiredofit

A theory based on models is insufficient evidence

SO TELL ME HOW PROOF IN THE LAW IS APPLICABLE/?

And to make your case, you refer to Galileo observing evidence to prove something. Yet you refuse to observe the many pieces of evidence that have been offered to you.

So if you won’t consider the evidence, how can you prove something?

This is too rich.

BINGO. Read what you’ve posted. You’ve admitted you won’t accept scientific evidence.

Here’s what you wrote: “Proof is a concept that is really only applicable in mathematics, because math deals with abstract concepts and definitions. “

I knew that. Unlike myth, I’m good at math. I knew you’d have to come around to mathematical proof. You had no choice (except to change your mind, which you’re incapable of doing on this issue)

Since the climate is measurable and observable instead of abstract, climate change can’t be proven, according to you. Therefore, by your own definitions, you are demanding we do the impossible.

And that makes your position absurd.

MATH, REALLY?

"The statement 1+1=2 is a true statement and will always remain true because the definitions of 1 and 2 never change."

Yea but you aint one to acknowledge true statements. Like the ability of co2 to trap heat and that we have emitted probably trillions of tons of the stuff.

SO, I ACCPET YOUR CHALLANGE, I WILL CHECK BACK TO SEE THE PROOF YOU HAVE LAID OUT.

Hey Tiredofit.

"First the fluffer Munster says

"And by the way , you just proved my point , stewards are appointed by the union committee NOT ELECTED""

Whats a fluffer?

Maybe thats a different one. The one here is as pious as the pope.LOL!

By analyzing this evidence, Galileo discovered that, disregarding air resistance, all objects accelerate at the same rate when falling. Galileo's experiment is a model example of the scientific method where theory is derived from observational evidence. THIS CAN BE PROVEN MATHMATICALY. 32 FT/SEC 2

SO if its TRUE it should be able to be PROVEN

Proof

Proof exists when you can say that a statement or theory is absolutely true in all instances. Proof is a concept that is really only applicable in mathematics, because math deals with abstract concepts and definitions. The statement 1+1=2 is a true statement and will always remain true because the definitions of 1 and 2 never change. Definition statements and logic are used to create theorems, which are absolutely true or false.

Evidence

According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, science is "knowledge or a system of knowledge covering general truths or the operation of general laws, especially as obtained and tested through scientific method." The core of the scientific method is using evidence to test theories. Evidence is specific observations of a given phenomenon. Galileo, the famed Italian scientist, was reputed to have collected evidence on gravitational forces by dropping balls from the top of the Tower of Pisa, timing how long they took to hit the ground. By analyzing this evidence, Galileo discovered that, disregarding air resistance, all objects accelerate at the same rate when falling. Galileo's experiment is a model example of the scientific method where theory is derived from observational evidence.

"SO you don't have any"

Don't have any what?

Evidence can be circumstantial and NOT proof of anything.

SO you don't have any
