I left the following comment at http://inafutureage.wordpress.com/2011/03/06/the-limits-of-evidence-based-marketing-and-climate-science/
I look forward to hearing a verifiable fact from Rob.
“well, actually, there’s nothing you could show me that would change my mind”
Well I cannot speak for everyone, but I for one can be persuaded by verifiable facts.
The “Anthropogenic CO2 causes Global Warming” hypothesis is not scientifically proven and as far as I am concerned is NOT a verifiable fact.
However as I said, I can be swayed by FACTS.
Here are three ways that one can prove a hypothesis scientifically.
In the case of the “Anthropogenic CO2 causes Global Warming” this is what is needed.
1 Empirical proof that shows the causation factor of CO2 with respect of Global Warming?
2. Statistical proof of Anthropogenic CO2. In case you dont know it, correlations are never proof.
3. Evidence for the “Anthropogenic CO2 causes Global Warming” hypothesis to be adopted over the null hypothesis?
Now you may need a little reading to understand what these things are. Here is a site which describes what is needed for #3 which might help. http://www.experiment-resources.com/null-hypothesis.html
Seeing as how you are so cock sure that you are right, here is your chance to produce some scientific proof of the “anthropogenic CO2 causes Global Warming” hypothesis.
You only need to produce a peer reviewed, published scientific paper that deals with one of the three options listed above.
Do that then you will convince me, and probably every other person who you categorise as a “denier”.
This comment will also be published under your url on my site http://www.globalwarmingsupporter.wordpress.com where my readers will look forward to your reply. My readers also consider your writing and the quality of your blog somewhat negatively should there be no reply.
Well this comment was too much for Rob because it was spammed apparently without delay.
