Comment Re:Wake me when a prediction comes true (Score 1) 746

The discoverers of the greenhouse effect predicted that temperature would rise as carbon dioxide concentrations rose. Carbon dioxide concentrations rose and temperatures have indeed risen. The prediction has held up well.

Computer modelling has added nothing to this. No computer model had produced better results than simply drawing a straight line through the graph.

The fact that temperatures are rising is not not news. We have known this for a while.

The fact that yet another untested model has made a quantitative prediction is not news. It is not even informative.
