Who's winning the Global Warming War?

The climate picture is confusing as evidence mounts that the claim of human (anthropogenic) caused global warming (AGW) is wrong yet almost daily headlines suggest it isn’t. There always was a war, but it is intensifying because the Climate Conference scheduled for Paris in November 2015 is likely the last chance for some form of international climate agreement.

Who is winning the war that developed because a small group decided to use climate science for a political agenda? People want to know the truth as evidence and facts accumulate to contradict what the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) predicted about global warming. One problem is, as Aeschylus said, “In war, truth is the first casualty.”

It shouldn’t be a war, but rather a scientific process of hypothesis testing by scientists in their proper role as skeptics. Normally after testing a hypothesis is accepted or rejected. In the case of the AGW hypothesis, the testing was sidelined. As Richard Lindzen, MIT professor of Atmospheric Meteorology said years ago, the consensus was reached before the research had even begun. Now the word “consensus” is used politically and falsely to claim a majority of scientists agree. Evidence shows the hypothesis is wrong, but nothing does that more than the fact that all their predictions are wrong...
