That pesky scientific method

My response to: Scientists study shifting attitude to climate change

"DAVID MARK: Could it be then that scientists are too focused on the facts; constrained by the scientific method and perhaps not passionate enough to have their message heard through the static of modern media?"

Oh damn that pesky scientific method! When scientists are "constrained" by the scientific method and only say the things that they are certain of, then they cannot be alarmist as they cannot back alarmist predictions up with definitive empirical evidence which unambiguously and definitively places CO2 as the sole cause and driver of global climate change.

Without that certainty, they have to "dress-up penguins in sun hats and factor 50 suncream!"

"Constrained by the scientific method" OMG! if that phrase right there does not cut to the heart of the weakness in the CAGW theorem, I don't know what does!

It makes me think of Scooby Doo. "The mystery machine stopped and Fred, Velma, Shaggy, Scooby and Daphne get out to confront the evil Catastrophic Anthropological Global Warming monster. Fred pulls off the CAGW's mask and underneath there was nothing!!! All they could hear was a distant voice proclaim, "I would have gotten away with it too, if it wasn't for that pesky scientific method"
