Physicist Howard Hayden's one-letter disproof of global warming claims

Stephan Kinsella at The Mises Economics Blog - short intro and reprint of a letter that a Professor Emeritus of Physics at UConn wrote to the EPA. Why the science is most assuredly NOT settled on CO2 and climate, and why there's no such thing as a "tipping point" to the CO2 levels in the atmosphere.

It has been often said that the "science is settled" on the issue of CO2 and climate. Let me put this claim to rest with a simple one-letter proof that it is false.

The letter is s, the one that changes model into models. If the science were settled, there would be precisely one model, and it would be in agreement with measurements.

Alternatively, one may ask which one of the twenty-some models settled the science so that all the rest could be discarded along with the research funds that have kept those models alive.

We can take this further. Not a single climate model predicted the current cooling phase. If the science were settled, the model (singular) would have predicted it.
