A good book needs to be written that covers all the reasons why there is skepticism about the claims made concerning Climate Change. Predictions that haven’t come true, scenarios that don’t make sense, re- written historical data, silencing of opposing viewpoints, and obvious propaganda.
True, true. That's why the media should cover the "truth" about Area 51, and 9/11, and the flat earth, and Pizzagate, and QAnon...

Hell, they should go for broke and give this guy coverage:

As has become sadly customary, you have replaced discussion with insults.

"When a thing's credentials look most plausible, lay it bare, observe its triviality, and strip it of the cloak of verbiage that dignifies it. Pretentiousness is the arch deceiver, and never more delusive than when you imagine your work is most meritorious." --Marcus Aurelius, The Meditations

Science doesnt make predictions based on estimates.
So how do they predict the path of hurricanes? How about chances and locations of cancer metastases?

As has become sadly customary, you do not understand satire when you see it. :)

You’ve never heard of confidence intervals?
Thats fuzzy science, not real science.

So how do they predict the path of hurricanes?
Science cannot predict when clouds form, but it can accurately project the path they take after it appears. so its more of an analysis than a prediction.

Use of confidence intervals is not ‘real science?

That’s so fantastically stupid it’s not even funny.

[h=1]IPCC breaks its own rules[/h]Posted on 25 Sep 19 by PAUL MATTHEWS 9 Comments
Another day, another ‘new’ climate report. This one is something about oceans and ice. There’s nothing new in this report (see commentary from Roger Pielke here, here and here) so what’s the point? The answer is, of course, that the constant stream of climate reports is an attempt to keep the climate scare at the … Con

If you had any knowledge about them you'd know that they would only work if the stats are accurate- but if theyre estimates too, then youre SOL.

[h=2]Climate hysteria is unjustified[/h]
The UK’s key climate indicators have barely changed for 20 years. That’s according to a new paper from the Global Warming Policy Foundation, which rebuts claims that the weather is getting worse.
According to author Paul Homewood, the Met Office’s Central England Temperature Record shows that temperatures have barely changed in 20 years and that there has been no increase in extremely hot days either:
“The summer of 2018 had just one day over 30 degrees, while 1976 had six. The Met Office’s data show that hot days are just not becoming more common.”
And there seems to be little to worry about on bad weather front either. There has been a gentle decline in storminess, and in most of the UK, there has been no change in either average rainfall or rainfall extremes:
“Only in Scotland has there been a noticeable increase”, says Homewood. “Climate hysteria is entirely overdone.”
