+ - Is the Global Warming Debate Buggy?

Submitted by

DanielMarkham writes "Is there something basically wrong with the way we're discussing Global Warming? I've been a reader and sometime contributor on Slashdot for many years, and I'm really amazed at the level of discussion that's going on regarding androcentric climate change.

Aside from the question of the status of the issue, what's the status of the discourse? Are we talking about the role that skepticism plays in science? The basic premise of falsifiability? The relationships between theory and observation? The triad of induction, abduction, and deduction that Pierce wrote about? Has slashdot taken a look at the mathematical and computer models involved with various predictions? Or are we throwing rhetorical rocks at one another and angling for the cheap shot?

To address this, and to stir the pot some, I've written a blog article critiquing the current level of debate. I believe the level of debate sucks — it's more like a drunken european crowd at a soccer game than a bunch of science-minded analytical geeks. We can do better than that."
