Thus, these Global Warming Hypothesis are very far from being scientific theories and, as a result, not what I'd like to see the public policy, regulation and law constructed about. While I have no doubt that human C02 emissions contribute to Global Warming, the magnitude of this warming is open to debate - and so is what, if anything, we should do about these emissions. Until then, I say we should just wait and let the data accrue and the science develop: then we'll better know what to do.
And fill sand-bags in the meantime.
Are you saying that it's better to believe - even if we're wrong - than to not believe and be wrong?
