Answer this question

  • Do denialists know what falsifiable and unfalsifiable mean?

I realize that is a terrible burden to bear, believing in something that isn't falsifiable. falsifiable: Web definitions confirmable: capable of being tested (verified or falsified) by experiment or observation Edit: FSM I appreciate that but I suspect Sage is also someone who has a good nature. Since I have the opposite political view of nearly all alarmists, most probably consider my answers politically based. They certainly are but my main point is that I think most of the alarmist's AGW arguments are as well.

How could they? They don’t know the meaning of “science” and they’ve never heard of Karl Popper or Thomas Kuhn.

Communication here will remain difficult until we all decide to use one language. I would like to vote for English. Will the proponents for Newspeak please vote as well. Here are some warnings for the confused: ► Falsifiable does not mean falsifiable; ► Theory does not mean theory; ► Significant does not mean significant; ► Global warming does not mean global warming; ► Climate change does not mean climate change; ► Unprecedented does not mean unprecedented; ► Denier does not mean denier; ► Paranoid science-hating alarmists means anyone who questions me. I thought this was good, but I have had to change the subject to make it more relevant: "Global Warming is not falsifiable as its proponents base the theory on a human text (the IPCC Reports) which provides accounts of Climate Change and other events that cannot be tested by observation or experiment but are instead accepted as infallible truth. This is one of the primary characteristics of pseudoscience. No matter what evidence is presented, there is no way that Climate Change can be contradicted. Even when Global Warming in action is observed, Climate Change always allows for an after-the-fact justification of the inconsistent observation with an argument to authority. Put differently, for any possible observation you can imagine Global Warming can explain away both that observation and its opposite. Only an observation proving that Gore does not exist would undermine the theory, and obviously that is impossible. Since no observation is allowed to contradict Global Warming and it has no predictive value, it is not science. "

Sure. True science is falsifiable. The CAGW theory is non falsifiable. Even "Skeptical""Science" can't come up with an argument as how you could falsify it. Then of course there are brilliant alarmists who say "You can falsify it by burning up all the fossil fuel in one day and see what happens. Teeeeeeeheeeeeeheeee..." basically proving that there is no real way to falsify the theory. I have no problem with people's religion. You can believe in the flying spaghetti monster, God, Thor or Zeus for all I care. But religion is not science. It's just not. You can't spend billions fighting a theory that is non falsifiable. "See? We predicted warmer temperatures because of man made CO2. This proves it." "See? We predicted colder temperatures because of man made CO2. This proves it." "See? We predicted less snow because of man made CO2. This proves it." "See? We predicted more snow because of man made CO2. This proves it." "See? We predicted less rain because of man made CO2. This proves it." "See? We predicted more rain because of man made CO2. This proves it." "See? We predicted weird weather because of man made CO2. This proves it."
