Uncertainty in Global Warming Science

Uncertainty in Global Warming Science Posted on 26 June 2011 by hfranzen Since the time of Kepler and Galileo there has been steady progress in the precision with which humans can predict the outcome of kinematic events. As is well known, major advances were made by Newton and Einstein and today we can predict with extraordinary accuracy the trajectory of an object traveling with a known velocity under the influence of gravitational forces. This does not mean that the trajectory of a rocket traveling to Mars, for example, is known with absolute precision but is to some extent uncertain. In part this uncertainty is introduced both by our inability to determine the velocity with perfect precision and by the perturbations of gravitational effects arising from more distant objects. Therefore it is correct to say, even in this very well understood case, that the results of the ...
