Someone else says the global warming models are flawed - Updated

Someone please tell me why we can't have actual debate

Rite Wing TechnoPagan tipped me off to this one, and it's a doozy.

Someone else is making one of my favorite points when it comes to anthropomorphic anthropogenic global warming.

The greatest drivers behind the hypothesis have not been the actual evidence, but computer models. Relative to the largely unknown climate complexities, these are still known to be primitive and incapable of replicating climate data as measured from observations. If a hypothesis can’t explain actual evidence and climate observations, it is wrong, and needs to be modified or abandoned.

Here's what I said in Technopagan Green no less.

Proven science means that the theory must not only account for past and present observations, but can predict future conditions. Here's where the global warming theories fall down. No one can take the numbers from five years ago and produce numbers that show what is happening now. That means that future conditions can't be predicted from the theory, which in turn means that there is no science behind the theories of human-caused global warming.

Unless and until global warming can be verified, it is a belief system that must be taken on faith.

In other words, a religion.

Mmm hmmm.

Just in case you missed it, here are my four questions about global warming. They are important, so I am going to emphasize them.

Is it unusual?

Is it entirely or mostly human caused?

Is it evil or bad?

Can human action reverse or slow it?

When I came up with those four questions, I picked four that were as terse and wide-ranging as I could. Unless every single one of those questions can be answered yes, there is no global warming crisis and no moral imperative to control the economy,

It's that simple.

Computer projections alone can't justify extensive and radical economic control.

Without the computer projections, there is no case for global warming.

Maybe now we can concentrate on the real environmental issues.

Update - Regular reader BTHO pointed out on 24Feb2010 that the correct term is anthropogenic, not anthropomorphic.
