the post was made in response to a forum post using James Lewis's article "Why Global Warming is Probably a Crock" on american thinker ( http://www.americanthinker.com/2007/01/why_global_warming_is_probably.h… ) to discredit climate science.

--- response part one---
there's a serious flaw in the logic of that article:

see, that only works if you want to be 100% percent correct. the same logic says that with the same variable, they have a 60.5% chance of being right half the time, 47% of being right 3/4 of the time, and 77.7% chance of being right a quarter of the time.

science is political

I like Dan Carmody's articles. They're often very scientific, always amusing and, at least the science part, if not the hippy-bashing part, is usually pretty objective. But I sometimes get the picture that this isn't always a matter of choice, but sometimes a matter of lack of political awareness. And don't get me wrong Dan, I'm not claiming you're less politically aware than the average aussie, or even less aware than me. I think this is a wide spread problem, and it affects all of us. Infact, we are the cause, and we affects everything else.
