"And more than being shown to be fanciful predictions that have been born mostly out of fiction rather than science, such prophesies have served to reinforce skeptics’ claims that the whole “science” of global warming is based on faulty assumptions. "
When I had science classes in Jr High and High school (way back in the 80's) I was taught that assumptions and science didn't mix. If you couldn't prove it empirically, then it was just a WAG and not even worth discussing outside of your lab partner.
Now days it seems that every bit of "science" is chock full of assumptions. There are no repeatable tests done, just guesses that support your postulate with no proof at all.
How well the Bible describes this phenomenon: "...science falsely so called." 1 Timothy 6:20
