That’s how the Foundry headlined their blog post on Fox News contributor Charles Krauthammer’s appearance on Bret Baier’s show last night.

The Daily Caller:

“The president pretends that this is all settled science,” he began. “Newton’s laws were considered settled for 200 years until a patent clerk [Albert Einstein] in Switzerland turned them over with a single paper in 1903 — and that was pretty settled science. The idea that this is all settled is absurd.”

“However, even if you accept it, then you look at what he did last week,” Krauthammer continued. “He wants to pretend that these individual weather events are caused by global warming, which is supposedly the settled science. And The New York Times — which is not exactly a right-wing rag — it says that there is no definitive evidence that it is causing the drought in the West Coast.”

“In fact — and I’m quoting here,” he said, “the most recent computer projections suggest that as the world warms, it should be getting wetter, not drier, out there in the winter. So if you accept the settled science of climate change, you would have the exact opposite affect of what we saw last week in California.”

“So the arrogance of this is rather appalling,” Krauthammer claimed, “but worse is the application of it to our economy. Shutting the coal industry, hurting us in mass transit, getting us out of our large cars. All of this is driven by this ideology, which in and of itself is a matter of almost theology.”

The “climate blitz” by Secretary of State Kerry who is traveling the world pushing “solutions” to global warming began with Kerry identifying climate change as “the world’s most fearsome weapon of mass destruction” — a bit of lunacy that had even climate scientists criticizing him.

But it hardly matters. The president himself lied about the drought being caused by climate change when the most current models show exactly the opposite. Nor did either man mention the IPCC conclusion that there has been a 15 year pause in warming.

It seems clear that this administration will forge ahead, creating policies based on outdated or non-existent science. In the process, they are likely to destroy hundreds of thousands of jobs, cause electric bills to skyrocket, and dig into the pockets of consumers by making energy far more expensive than it needs to be.

But hey! At least we’re saving the world, right?

Ok, so they were 99% right by your reckoning. In other words, it wasn't settled. Sounds like you are the one misunderstanding and likely deliberately so.

The simple fact is that the models being touted by the climate cult have not proven to be accurate. Co2 has increased while temperature has been stable for the last 15 years. This was not and is not foreseen by the models being used.

The models haven't accurately forecast temperatures and the climate cultists continue to live in a manner that tends to keep people from believing their own hypothesis ie don't take jets on long trips and garnering a huge carbon footprint to have conferences in resort area when the whole thing could be done over the internet, live in small houses with low energy use, don't sell your climate cult cable channel to an Arab Oil Sheikh to name just a few.

If the evidence clearly shows that the "science" is far from settled...and the hard core left still uses the KNOWN false claims to advance "programs" that just so happen to also coincide with anti-capitalist destruction of economies of the "haves" and redistribution schemes....

...one might come to the conclusion reasonably that the FACTS, EVIDENCE AND TRUTH DON'T MATTER.

One might also come to the conclusion that testimony that the EPA was infusing anti-capitalism programs sneakily into their assault on the free market, and the host of other totalitarian acts by the IRS, DOJ, FBI, FCC, and the rest of this cabal...along with the coverup by the media and indoctrination by academia and Hollywood are dots to be connected.

Then again, maybe what is obviously concerted action to some...is mere harmless coincidence to others.

After all, we wouldn't want to be too assertive about protecting liberty when being gang raped by tyranny.

"Heisenberg and Schrödinger get pulled over for speeding.
The cop asks Heisenberg "Do you know how fast you were going?"
Heisenberg replies, "No, but we know exactly where we are!"
The officer looks at him confused and says "you were going 108 miles per hour!"
Heisenberg throws his arms up and cries, "Great! Now we're lost!"
The officer looks over the car and asks Schrödinger if the two men have anything in the trunk.
"A cat," Schrödinger replies.
The cop opens the trunk and yells "Hey! This cat is dead."
Schrödinger angrily replies, "Well he is now."

Would be nice if they got the same number or more contacts in support of the Dr. I don't do twitter or Facebook , so maybe someone could start whatever in his support.

Auto-play videos are among the top reasons Web surfers strike Websites from their favorites lists and blogrolls. When the video begins with a loud, obnoxious COMMERCIAL, it constitutes grounds for immediate expulsion into the outer darkness, where there is the weeping and the gnashing of teeth. Mr. Moran, you should have known better -- and if you didn't, you do now!

Newtonian physics was good enough to get us to the moon but not good enough for a sharp focus on a CRT.

Special relativity, et al, was published in 1905. It actually demolished the generally accepted scientific theory of the existence of the aether.

This is how I illustrate what we as humans KNOW to my high chemistry students. I draw circle of diameter about a foot. This is what we know we know (facts, sun rises in the east, etc). The next circle extends out to the edges of the white board (What we know enough about to know we don't have factual answers to our questions. (What started and ended ice ages.) The next circle has a diameter of miles, representing all the things we don't anything about to even realize at this point we don't know it. Climate science, second circle.

I'm not a scientist and I don't know what the heck is going on. I do know Minnesota was once covered in glaciers and they receded without freeways. Sea levels have been rising since. Apparently that has accelerated in a steep curve. Would that have happened anyway? That's the jackpot question.

It seems to me that a specific science should be able to predict a specific thing. But when you're talking about what might be the tail end of geological epochs, exactly what are you predicting about the Amazon River becoming a giant black lagoon? The real question should be: is there any mechanism by which humans could stop sea levels from rising cold in its tracks?

The truth is that there are so many variables I wonder if some scientists are just having trouble saying "we don't know." You have Earth-Sun patterns, unpredictable volcanoes, jet streams, ocean currents, etc. Can we even say with exact certainty what caused the ice age? If you can't do that with the past, how can you predict the future?

This reminds me of Obama and Egypt: trying to pretend you're controlling a whirlwind and that it was all fine and we had it under control all along.

the IPCC conclusion that there has been a 15 year pause in warming.

CONCLUSION? More like concession.

Can you imagine if Jenghis Khan had climate change? I tremble to just think about it.

Let's see: the Phlogiston Theory of Combustion was settled science, too, until Lavoisier discovered oxygen and oxidation. Too, Phrenology was accepted for awhile as a reliable predictor of intellectual development. And don't forget the Luminiferous Ether, which was absolutely necessary for the propogation of light in a vacuum.

Settled science? Surely, you jest!
