With a complex system like the Earth's climate you don't expect to be able to model it precisely. if you're saying it's *wrong* because of a glitch then you're talking nonsense. It stands on the empirical evidence, which is a load of data, not opinions. Data on glacial retreat and sea ice melting and temperature measurements. Those papers I mentioned are based on that data, not the other way around, hence this isn't an argument from authority, it's an argument from empirical evidence. -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Everything List" group.
