Calling out science

So much for the scientists’ climatology models. There hasn’t been any global warming in ten years:

This would mean global temperatures have not risen since 1998, prompting some to question climate change theory. But experts say we are still clearly in a long-term warming trend – and they forecast a new record high temperature within five years.

Okay, science fans, who is willing to step up and put their trust in science up against my skepticism of it. The global warming experts are saying that 2013 will be hotter than 1998. I’m saying that it won’t be, based on nothing more than my distrust of the motivations underlying what passes for “global warming” science.

If, in five years, I’m proven wrong, I will publicly acknowledge that the science of global warming merits more respect than I have hitherto shown it. If you’re wrong, you will publicly acknowledge that my scientific skepticism is more reliable than this application of the scientific method as well as the scientific judgment of all the scientists who subscribe to the theories of global warming and global climate change.
