There are certainly aspects of science that no reasonable scientist questions. Nobody is conducting further research to confirm the earth is round or that is orbits the sun. The science is settled in that sense. Of course it could all be we are but the dreams of someone in a parallel universe, but it makes about as much sense to explore that possibility.Global warming is now a religion. A huge red flag was thrown when it was stated that the science was settled. By definition, science is never settled. Science should always be open minded. If CO2 is cause and not the effect, why are the climate models so inaccurate?Good etiquette says no religion or politics at social gatherings...
Obtaining source climate data is near impossible. Adjusted results are published with a bias toward maintaining research funding.
That being said, climate change is very much being actively researched from a wide variety of angles- in part because they want to improve the models as much as possible. It’s like weather- sure the weather man might be wrong that it won’t rain tomorrow, but I’d still prefer they attempt to forecast so I can make an educated guess about top-down driving.
You talk about religion on climate change, but I’m very much open to further insight and research about the topic. Those arguing against it in this thread ignore any evidence put in front of them, or insist it’s part of a scientific conspiracy. I think the religion thing goes both ways.
