One wonders what it would take to establish a "fact" by your implicit definition.

__________

Facts are not established and that's the point. They are facts, absolutes.

Those that ignore one study in favor of another ignore possible facts. If every scientist is running off a flawed theory then their conclusions are off. (UN studies where "hide the decline" come to mind).

Something is not a fact because 9 out of 10 scientists believe it. Heck 10 out of 10 could still be wrong.

But if a community is wrong all the time with it's "sky is falling" predictions why continue to believe them?

Want to know when I'll start believing facts, when reality matches up to them. When the solutions don't involve schemes to make the Al Gore's of the world rich.

My question to you is, how many time must the Global Warming Alarmists be wrong, before you question them?
