The Church of Climatology

A "quasi-religious incantation masquerading as science" that basis its beliefs using Confirmation bias, not actual observations.

[...] confirmation bias is a tendency to search for or interpret new information in a way that confirms one's preconceptions and avoids information and interpretations which contradict prior beliefs. [...]

From Mr. Booker's Article...
[...] The fact is that what has been happening to the world's climate in recent years, since global temperatures ceased to rise after 1998, was not predicted by any of those officially-sponsored models. The discrepancy between their predictions and observable data becomes more glaring with every month that passes. [...]

Suddenly I envision Al Gore jumping up and down on Oprah's couch, although for a different reason. Why is that?

That would be funny to see Gore et al "lying" down on a couch alright-wondering "where it all went wrong" LOL!

On another note, I see Leonardo DiCaprio released a movie about our "foot print" on the globe. I guess he must have received a PhD from the Gore/Suzuki Church of the Blessed Institute of Climatology...

LOL Syc... Perhaps Dr Phills couch would have been more appropriate than Oprahs... however I had just seen the youtube video of Tom Cruise going crazy on Oprah earlier on the day I posted this. I am not a fan of either, so I am way behind the times here it seems.

Leonardo DiCraprio... Inconvenient Truth Two? Foot prints in the sand washed away by rising sea levels. The story that never happened.
