Watch: Morano in new video on how climate science has become ‘unfalsifiable’ – Predict both outcomes & You are always correct – ‘There is no way anyone can falsify the global warming theory now’

Morano: We’ve been told climate change leads to less snow AND that it leads to more snow. It causes more hurricanes and fewer hurricanes, longer bird migrations and also shorter bird migrations.  Global warming causes more crime, but, get this, reducing crime causes more global warming. And if you disagree with any part of this of scenario…you might just be a “climate denier”— and belong in jail yourself!

Today… A sort of “climate astrology” has taken over. Many climate claims have descended into the realm of the predictions of Nostradamus or the Mayan calendar.  There is no way anyone can falsify the global warming theory now because any weather event that happens “proves” their case.

 

Science is Falsifiable – Clear Energy Alliance 

In order to know if a theory could be true, there must be a way to prove it to be false. Unfortunately, many climate change scientists, the media and activists are ignoring this cornerstone of science. In this bizarre new world, all unwelcome climate events are caused by climate change. But as legendary scientific philosopher Karl Popper noted, “A theory that explains everything, explains nothing.”

Marc Morano explains.

Morano: Did you know man-caused climate change is resulting in LESS snowfall…but also MORE snowfall? Or that it leads to drought, EXCEPT when it leads to flooding? Or that it causes MORE hurricanes — or FEWER hurricanes. Or that it causes our days to get longer… but ONLY when it’s not causing them to get shorter? Are you confused? Who wouldn’t be?

This is where the scientific principle that requires theories to be “falsifiable” should come into play. Simply put, there must be a way to prove a theory false in order to know if it could be true. This idea was proposed by Karl Popper in the mid 20th century and it has been a central tenet for all scientific inquiry ever since.

For example, horoscopes are not scientific because there is no way to disprove claims that are broad, vague and contradictory. How could you disprove a horoscope that says, “Now is a good time to be starting something new,” or “The universe is pushing you into a more polarized environment”?

Conversely, Sir Isaac Newton’s theories ARE falsifiable. Because we can test the idea that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction, we know that the principle is true.

Now consider some of the claims being made by climate change activists. We’ve been told climate change leads to less snow AND that it leads to more snow. It makes wet places wetter and dry places dryer… EXCEPT when it is making wet places dryer AND dry places wetter. It causes more hurricanes and fewer hurricanes, longer bird migrations and also shorter bird migrations.  Global warming causes more crime, but, get this, reducing crime causes more global warming. And if you disagree with any part of this of scenario…you might just be a “climate denier”— and belong in jail yourself!
