50 Rebuttals

New Scientist’s Short Sharp Science blog offers a 50-point rebuttal to an article from a UK newspaper with 100 reasons why climate change is natural. My favorite response may be the slightly bitchy answer to the very first point, “There is ‘no real scientific proof’ that the current warming is caused by the rise of greenhouse gases from man’s activity.” To which New Scientist replied:

Technically, proof exists only in mathematics, not in science. Whatever terminology you choose to use, however, there is overwhelming evidence that the current warming is caused the rise in greenhouse gases due to human activities.
