Science Vs. Appeal To Authority (Tony Heller)

In this video I explain the difference between science and appeal to authority, and use the specific example of Potholer's ice age feedback theory to illustrate it.

In regard to AGW and CO2. The simple fact of the matter is that while the amount of CO2 has been steadily increasing over the last 100 years the temperature of the planet has been variable, with a cooling phase running for a number of decades following the Second World War. Presently global warming has paused - over the last 18+ years.

As for the general ice loss in the northern hemisphere (which leads to temperature increases), one must seriously consider other causes for this such as particle pollution that makes the snow very slightly dirty, and causes it to melt more rapidly. Air pollution in Europe and Asia is terrible. If such phenomena are not included in the climate models, then they need adjusting. Without the particle pollution we might find longer lasting ice and snow and colder overall temperatures.
