Science Reporting No Different Than Activists' Own Hype

First, the theory of catastrophic anthropogenic global warming (CAGW) was never well supported by actual empirical evidence, and the computer models that have served the CAGW consensus as replacements for that evidence have failed miserably to predict the empirical evidence gathered in the last few years. The theory is then left without much support by any sort of traditional scientific method, which means it is little more than pseudo-science at best. Second, the CAGW consensus has been shrinking over the years, rather than growing, signaling a theory that is on its way to the dustbin of scientific history, along with a hollow Earth, life on the Moon, panspermia, the Copenhagen Interpretation, Many Worlds, White Holes, Dark Energy, etc.

Scientists didn't posit a hollow earth. That was science fiction. Jules Verne. It became apparent very quickly that the moon had no atmosphere, and it was apparent since prehistoric times that it had no blue oceans nor green forests.

As to Dark Energy, that's speculative science. What we do know is that on the large scale, the galaxies are spreading out from each other at an accelerating pace. Science must at least try to fit its theories to reality. Any theory which says the spread should be decelerating---is wrong. That leaves out "good old physics like we learned in the 1950's".
Following Hurricane Sandy’s massive devastation across the northeast, many were quick to tie it to “climate change” (you know, what “global warming” and the “new ice age” used to be.). In a blog post on Tuesday, former Vice President Al Gore wrote “Hurricane Sandy is a disturbing sign of things to come. We must heed this warning and act quickly to solve the climate crisis. Dirty energy makes dirty weather.”

Meghan McCain sarcastically weighed in on Twitter, “So are we still going to go with climate change not being real fellow republicans?”

As his city struggles in the Sandy...
