Is there global warming? To answer definitively, one would have to possess a high level of specialized scientific knowledge, and to believe that computer models are capable of measuring enormously large and complex patterns. We surely do not meet the first criterion; we do not possess the requisite scientific knowledge. On the second point, we remain skeptical that computers can measure something as immense as the entire earth. When all is said and done, one resorts to a computerized model precisely because an actual measurement is impossible.
We might also add that the matter is further camouflaged by the recent, scandalous behavior of some scientists who attempted, unsuccessfully, to suppress scientific data that supposedly cast doubt on what most scientists affirm. On global warming per se, color us confused.
