Who cares if it was a paradigm shift or not? The point remains the same: Global warming enthusiasts claim extreme certainty in their models, models which are constantly under revision and which are highly sensitive to initial conditions (see weather and chaos theory).If one thinks what Latif said is a paradigm shift, or about face from scientists
It is equivalent to the weatherman coming on Monday morning and informing everyone that they absolutely must buy tons of bread because there will be a blizzard that will last for weeks starting Tuesday. Then on Tuesday he comes on and says he made a minor revision to his model, and his over-arching theory remains the same, but actually there will be a tornado on Wednesday.
A high-school student working on a simple science project is taught he must support his mathematical model with data. The scientific method: You ask a question; you propose an answer; you develop an experiment to determine whether your proposal is consistent with reality. Global warming enthusiasts are missing that last step, and they know they are.
