1veedo Posted April 12, 2007 Share Posted April 12, 2007 Global warming is one of the most well-understood natural phenomenons on the face of the planet. We know more about the climate then we do many other areas of science. It is also one of the oldest fields of science, going back before relativity and quantum mechanics. Climate science is just as sound as evolution or any other field of science. I think it's funny that the three most disputed areas of science, outside of science itself, are actually three of the most well-supported and agreed upon areas of science: global warming, evolution, and the big bang. All three are extraordinarily well supported by both the evidence and the scientists themselves yet people seem to have problems with them. Science editor-in-cheif Donald Kennedy even observed, "Consensus as strong as the one that has developed around this topic is rare in science." ("An unfortunate U-turn on carbon," Science, vol. 291, p. 2515.) If you want to attack science, attack it at a weak place. The Creationists wedge tactic would have worked much better had they picked something like string theory instead of evolution. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
