Why do people accept some things and not others? It's a complex question. But global warming predictions that turned out to be inaccurate are problematic in any case.

"Florida Real Estate" was a byword for scam half a century ago (you know, back when the predictions were of a new ice age Another Ice Age? rather than global warming) so I'm not sure how "If you want to know if climate change is real, ask real estate brokers in Miami . . . " is likely to persuade anyone.

Giggle.

You're trying to claim I said scientists shouldn't "make predictions based on their data," and then arguing against that statement.

That's called making a "straw man" argument. Look it up.

Giggle. Some of you bozos are so cute when you're ranting!

I think "modifying" predictions after they fail to come to pass rather misses the point, don't you? Certainly it happens in science (and everywhere predictions are made), but the global warming crisis is especially fraught: if you're caught crying wolf, even unintentionally, the consequences could be problematic.
