The Great Lakes

Demonstrate the flaws in climate “science”:

…if the lakes’ huge fluctuations in the past weren’t caused by mankind’s burning fossil fuels, why are scientists so convinced that the far more minor changes happening today are? The reason is simple. Climate scientists can blame anything they want on global warming. The climate models are imprecise enough that no matter what is happening they can point to it as proof that man-made climate change is happening. Too much rain, too little rain, bitterly cold winters, mild winters, more snow, less snow, rising water levels, falling water levels — they can attribute “climate change” as a cause of it all.

A theory for which all evidence is evidence of it, and thus not falsifiable, is not science.

BTW, blogging has been light because I’ve been wiped out by the ISDC for the past five days, and this morning I was at a meeting at ISS Commercialization at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. More meetings tomorrow, then back to LA tomorrow night, where I hope things will get back to normal.

One thought on “The Great Lakes”

  1. Differences in mean water level of a meter or more are fairly common on the Great Lakes over intervals as small as a year or two. I grew up on the shore of Lake Michigan and remember the water level falling quite a bit in the early 1960’s, then coming back up by the time I graduated high school in the late 1960’s. There are all sorts of things that influence lake levels including annual average snowfalls in large swaths of surrounding territory. That was also quite variable. In my own hometown, snowfall was heavy in the mid-1950’s, appreciably less in the early- and mid-1960’s, then heavy again in the late 1960’s.

    “Climate science” grows more Orwellian with every passing year. Now, it seems, “We have always been at war with Eastasia” is being trotted out in place of “We have always been at war with Eurasia,” despite considerable sloppiness anent flushing the latter down the memory hole.
