"The best advice regarding scientific knowledge, which certainly applies to climate, came to me from Mr. Mallory, my high school physics teacher," Christy wrote in a BBC commentary.
"He proposed that we should always begin our scientific pronouncements with this statement: 'At our present level of ignorance, we think we know. . .' Good advice for the IPCC, and all of us."
The state of denial of global warming believers reminds me of Albert Einstein and the Big Bang theory.
In 1916, his Theory of Relativity seemed to confirm once and for all the Static Universe theory, which held that the universe neither contracts nor expands.
A decade later, Georges Lemaitre, a Roman Catholic priest, astronomer and physicist looked to the heavens, saw an expanding universe and put forth his Big Bang theory.
Einstein met him in 1927 and told him, "Your calculations are correct, but your grasp of physics is abominable."
He's Einstein. That settled that.
Except Edwin Hubble looked to the heavens and he also saw galaxies in motion. Others, too, began doubting the scientific consensus on Einstein's universe.
In January 1933, Lemaitre detailed his theory at a seminar. When the priest was finished, Einstein stood and applauded.
"This is the most beautiful and satisfactory explanation of creation to which I have ever listened," Einstein said.
He later called his support of a static universe his "biggest blunder."
Einstein knew what Mallory knew - and that is that he knew so little. I suggest the followers of global warming follow suit.
