Question by Dana1981: What are your thoughts on the National Academy of Sciences report “Advancing the Science of Climate Change”?
A main conclusion of the new NAS report on climate science is “Some scientific conclusions or theories have been so thoroughly examined and tested, and supported by so many independent observations and results, that their likelihood of subsequently being found to be wrong is vanishingly small. Such conclusions and theories are then regarded as settled facts. This is the case for the conclusions that the Earth system is warming and that much of this warming is very likely due to human activities.”
One of the conclusions of the report is that there hasn’t been enough research on the potential impacts of “extreme” climate change (i.e. greater than 6°C warming).

What are your thoughts on this report from America’s best scientists?
Who the heck gave CO2 expeller thumbs-up for that garbage?
Probably the same people who gave Edward O thumbs-up.
Eric’s source is Dick Lindzen, who no doubt is lying as usual because he’s spiteful that he’s not a good enough scientist to be an NAS member.
Answer by East Indians are smart
If a theory has been tested many times, there has to be proof unless someone is hiding something from society through a bribe. Most can actually be witnessed in real life. The whole debate on global warming. It may not be what we expected but in some parts of the country, strange weather patterns are taking place that had never existed.
