We have to keep in mind, nothing can ever be "proven" by science, only disproven.
When you have a theory, you are supposed to try and disprove it.
You look at the evidence objectively and try to disprove it as much as possible.
If you can not do this, then congrats, your theory is not disproven or proven.
This is the way people should approach this issue.
Instead they come up with their conclusion either for or against global warming then selectively look at the evidence which supports their preconcieved dogmatic position.
Actually, I don't know that it does anymore. It seems that it was so easy to hijack science in this debate, it must have been done before, and it will happen again. The scientific method seems far from bullet proof.
