    We learned this past week that one of the most solid, bedrock constants in the most solid and bedrock of sciences, a science where every hypothesis is subjected to years of rigorous laboratory testing might not be as constant as believed.

    The speed of light, c, might not be the upper limit for travel in the physical world, but the idea that mankind's almost imperceptible change in Earth atmosphere is causing "Global Warming" is "Settled science"?

    Do you see why I laugh at the Warmers? Where do you find such arrogance and ignorance?

    Frank, the essence of what you are saying above is intellectually nihilistic: "We can't possibly know anything and the universe is one big unknowable mystery, so there's no reason we should take action on overwhelming evidence and scientific arguments, because it could be wrong just like Einstein might be wrong."

    Can you see any problems with that line of reasoning?

    Are you saying that AGW is "Settled science" and beyond question?

    Arrogance of warmers? That itself is arrogant, assumes someone KNOWS the absolute truth. It's just a coincidence 7 billion people put out record levels of CO2 in the last ten -twenty years?

    The warmers are the only ones claiming "the science is settled" and demanding that the taxpayers cough up $trillions to fund their delusions.

    That pretty much defines arrogance.

    The evidence isn't overwhelming and the the arguments are psuedo-scientific. For instance, the argument that "the science is settled" is a non-scientific argument. In fact, it's the sure sign of a con.
