Even when the global warming nuts admit they can't explain things . . .

Today, this story came out where scientists studying climate change have had to admit that their s.w.a.g.'s about the "greenhouse gas" methane being released from the ocean floor 55 million years ago cannot explain why temperatures rose rapidly over a period of a few thousand years.  It seems that at a time when the world was already hotter than it is now, temperatures spiked another 5 to 9 degrees Celsius.  And the "commonly accepted scientific range" for the increase in greenhouse gasses during that time would only explain a 1 to 3.5 degree change.

In other words, what the climate scientists have theorized is not supported by historical, scientific fact.

But that doesn't seem to matter much to them.  Even after admitting that they have no idea why the earth warmed in the past, they remain certain that they know why it is "warming" now.  (Even though the planet actually seems to be cooling.)  And that, of course, is the greenhouse gas, carbon dioxide.

It is maddening.  Oh if these folks could just learn a lesson from So-crates (as read/paraphrased by Bill S. Preston, Esq.) . . . "The only true knowledge is knowing that you know nothing."

Dude, that's them!
