You appear to assume that science is unassailable. Science itself is a process but that does not mean anything that comes of it is accurate or correct and that is what we have been talking about for a couple of threads relating to guns and crime, something in the political realm since the studies are pursued for the benefit of affecting law, so no, we are not just talking about scientific research, we are talking about what the results of bogus science studies can affect.
we should recognise that we are dealing with a coupled non-linear chaotic system, and therefore that the long-term prediction of future climate states is not possible.
