I expect you will find it very satisfying they way it justifies your belief in CAGW Smile | :)
I have no "belief". As such, thanks for the link, I'll be reading it later this week. I am also not bound to what you call "CAGW" - if facts or knowledge changes, then so my opinion must shift. To do anything else would be illogical and evil.

I'm back from ten days in Rome. Raised a Catholic, I could not set foot in the Vatican. Indulging in pizza, spaghetti, lasagna, walking through streets where people sell expensive plastic, and between those riches you find the beggars and thieves. Wordsworth was materializing;
"And homeless near a thousand homes I stood,
And near a thousand tables pined and wanted food."
Any farmer will complain about change, because it means uncertainty and risc. You can pray for things to remain the same, hoping that some invisible hand will take care of you. Or you can actually start to think, learn and adapt.

People prefer believing over thinking. You shouldn't be believing scientists; they work better when their ideas are challenged.

There are moments when you seem "religiously" pushing an agenda, using sofism and wordsmithing to convince. I do not like it because it would be doing the same as a preacher - using your intellect to manipulate the result to a predefined outcome. I repeat that it came across like that, not that such is the case.

From Socrates;
The only good is knowledge and the only evil is ignorance.
Knowledge we gain by challenging beliefs, not by embracing them. If you say you can disprove an idea, I will be questioning it. If you say you can prove an idea, I will be questioning it.

Do you believe in some God?
