We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Somebody needs to start keeping track of these "predictions", and start publicly grading the "scientists" with their score. 0 of 12, 0 of 24, and so on. So far, every "prediction" that I'm aware of has been falsified.
The "media" need to stop reporting on any "scientist" who gets to 0 of 10.
Suggest starting with this one: Name a climate prediction from the last 25 years that came true in a way that withstands scrutiny. I'm sure there probably is at least one, it just doesn't spring to mind.
