    Science is not a democratic process. Maybe you will be capable of debating this issue when you learn that.

    Never said it was. If it was, you could vote on it. You might try to understand what I am saying.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    What about the times that a majority of people are wrong?

    We're not talking people. We're talking experts in the field. Most mechanics agree when diagnosing a car. Most doctors understand what certain symptoms mean. Same here. It's not as nilly willy as you're pretending.

    When sufficient evidence arises to show that, the majority changes their mind. That's the great part about science, it can change as new information is discovered.

    Let me know when it does.

    You guys miss my point. Consensus does not prove a scientific view. Consensus cannot change scientific facts. Consensus is often wrong.

    Judging them only by the results they produce, it is difficult to believe that the best and the brightest are devoting themselves to this field of study.

    Have you found any scientific organization in the world that has raised AGW Science to being a Scientific Theory?
    I am not of the mind that a man is either of science or of religion. At his best and his worst, man exists in the misty glimmering where the falling angel meets the rising ape. That he chooses a direction from that point defines him as human.

    Seems to me they would laughed out of the scientific community if they did.

    It occurred to me in the long exchange with Boo that the Diehards like to crow that this is often derided as only being a Theory like Evolution.

    In truth, this is not a Theory and will never be a Theory. It's without foundation and does not meet even one of the criteria to be a Scientific Theory.

    There is something causing the warming if we abandon the idea that things happen by magic, but the notion that CO2 is the prime driver of warming is silly.

    I've linked a few for you. You'd be hard pressed to find one such organization, legitimate organization, that didn't believe in GW and that man is playing a role in what we see today.
