Twenty Five Years Of Settled Science

“There is something fascinating about science. One gets such wholesale returns of conjecture out of such a trifling investment of fact.”

― Mark Twain

Twenty five years ago, experts blamed a huge snowstorm in New York on global warming.

In 2000, experts said snow was a thing of  the past.

“According to Dr David Viner, a senior research scientist at the climatic research unit (CRU) of the University of East Anglia, within a few years winter snowfall will become “a very rare and exciting event”. “Children just aren’t going to know what snow is,” he said.”

In 2003 experts said skiing was doomed because global warming was going to make it too hot to snow.

This story was repeated in 2012.  Skiing was doomed because of global warming.

And now experts say record cold and snow is caused by global warming, and they predicted it all along.

But the reality is that September-March snowfall has been increasing for 50 years, and climate academics and journalists are science fiction writers with no connection to reality.

    Hey, if it hasn’t snowed hard in 20 years it never will. Right?

  5. Actually, I should like to see the mathematical proof, or even the empirical evidence, that peer reviewed papers have the monopoly of wisdom or knowledge. There are thousands of counter-examples in the history of science. Indeed, every major advance has been a consequence of challenging established wisdom, so to base the selection criterion on what amounts to little more than a mixture of cronyism and intellectual snobbery is hardly supported by the scientific method.

    Ah, yes. When it snows, it’s global warming. When it doesn’t snow, it’s global warming. See, no problems!
