Yes, science is the current best knowledge. The uncovering of new facts produces new understanding, and the scientific consensus occasionally moves to align with new facts.

More often a new fact doesn't fundamentally refute an understanding but adds to it.

The enhanced greenhouse effect is contributing to the ice mass loss in Greenland. An oscillation is affecting this one particular glacier, so that it has been going through a growth phase. It doesn't overthrow anything we know. It just adds some detailed knowledge about the micro-climate of one glacier.

The only irony here is how fanatical cultists like you who believe in the infallibility of science actually have the biggest egos.

On the contrary. The changing of one's understanding based on new facts is the opposite of having a big ego.

Let's all forget that the old science was once published too and demand that being published is absolute proof of truth, and proof that this new truth is based on the smart people doing smart things and advancing human knowledge. The only true knowledge of humanity. The published knowledge. It is in the Bible now and obviously that means it has divine properties of invoation, discovery, and novelty.

What?

Show me the math on that. Let me run the experiment to verify your claims.

You can't because it is not real science in the traditional sense. It is modern "science" which is your religious claims. Claims made by "preists" of your religion that the common man has to simply believe "because it's science".

Real science says that man made co2 is a tiny fraction of all co2 in the atmosphere. Real science says that co2 only blocks a tiny fraction of the infrared spectrum and can NOT block the majority of radiant heat. Real science says that co2 increases lead to diminishing effects on insulation, meaning every addition to co2 blocks less heat than the last. Real science says that co2 is a tiny impact on temperatures compares to all the other contributors. It is far from the dominant effect and absolutely NOT a "thermostat" as your religion claims.

It's not rocket science mate. I've melts more when it's hotter.

Real science says that man made co2 is a tiny fraction of all co2 in the atmosphere.

Human activity has increased atmospheric CO2 from the pre-industrial 280 or 290 ppm to today's 415 ppm.

In round numbers 30% anthropogenic.

Is that what you're calling a tiny fraction?

Greenhouse gases in the atmosphere (such as water vapor and carbon dioxide) absorb most of the Earth's emitted longwave infrared radiation, which heats the lower atmosphere.

Yes the impact of greenhouse gases is stated per doubling of concentration. The effect decreases with increasing concentration.

I'm not that interested in flat earthers

Do you understand that diminishing effect literally disproves the run away greenhouse effect that your religion espouses?

I'm not religious.

What do you mean by runaway warming?

This is climate change. The drop in global food production, this year hitting europe, previous years hitting Africa and asia. Coal reef bleaching. Wildfires. Heatwaves. Drought. Flooding. Ice sheet mass loss. That's from there 1.5 degrees we've seen.

If we stop emitting tonight there's 20 years warning in the post. Maybe 1 or 2 more degrees.

Bottom line is you're arguing a straw man, and it's boring.
