If they are unwilling to relook at their models and see if this new model does a better job at predicting what's going on, then surely they have fallen out of the realm of science and into belief and if they aren't willing to have anyone challenge that belief, but rather stamp on anyone that gives a different message to them as a heretic, then surely they are becoming a religion.
That was my point in posting it.
Your point was to throw doubt on all of the underlying science concerning global warming. Let's be clear. Your political philosophy requires you to not believe in gobal warming and you therefore look for anything that you think will be ammunition for your cause.
The more I look into Miklós Zágoni, the LESS I find. Post after post after post just repeats the exact wording of the initial article, often followed by claims that he has undoubdtetly finally buried the science behind global warming. So he's published in a peer review journal. Where are the reviews?
And, again, he seems to be only claiming that the end result of global warming will be different, not that it doesn't exist.
White House report says people cause global warming
Here is an interesting document that details how Philip Cooney, former Chief of Staff of the White House's Council on Environmental Quality (and before that lobbyist for the American Petroleum Institute) changed the above document to insert uncertainty to the document where none existed. This is typical of this administration in all kinds of ways.
