Henry Thornton - SMERSH: A discussion of economic, social and political issues Louis Hissink Responds, Scientificaly Date 21/12/2004
Member rating 4/5
In which your lowly scribe defends himself against un-named critics.
By Louis Hissink Email / Print

Pascal's dilemma basically reduces to whether one supports faith or fact.

As a scientist, I support fact. My critic prefers faith, so it seems.

So far not one scintilla of evidence has been produced to counter the scientific evidence graphed in Figure 2 from Jaworowski's submission to the US Senate in March 2004.


It basically refutes the lie that CO2 levels have been constant at a level of 270 ppmv for the last 10,000 years.

It also shows my critic has no knowledge of the scientific literature.

But when had this stopped the Inquisition?


update: Jaworowski's submission here

I myself have thought similar thoughts regarding M. Hissinks writings, that is to say I dissagree with him, and the above graph looks alot like a rising curve to me. That being said, his science does not seem faulty, just biased. A counterpoint would be welcome. What does Fortesque think?

The above graph looks like a rising curve? If anything it looks more like a general decrease since 1800, based on a few very high values around the + 500 ppmv in the 19th century.
