"The controversy over man-made global warming is far from settled. Despite claims that 'the science is all in' and 'there is no room for debate', the scientific method, with repeatable and falsifiable hypotheses, cannot really work when applied to the environment. Instead, scientists develop models - hyotheses, if you will - that set forth well-informed explanations of how various parts of the environment interrelate. Models are then evaluated to see how well their projections correlate with actual, measured data...The problem for [Al] Gore and others is that the models they use to justify legislative action are failing." Ronald J Rychlak, professor of law, at University of MIssissippi posts at WMD, a US independent news network.
