Кстати, любители сокращать военные расходы - обратите внимание, что social security+medicare+medicaid в 2 раза превышает размер оборонного бюджета. Как его не сокращай это не решит проблем.

Sic Transit - Глобальное потепление как наука.

Была такая древняя наука... алхимия...

Polynomial cointegration tests of anthropogenic impact on global warming:

…We show that although these anthropogenic forcings share a common stochastic trend, this trend is empirically independent of the stochastic trend in temperature and solar irradiance. Therefore, greenhouse gas forcing, aerosols, solar irradiance and global temperature are not polynomially cointegrated. This implies that recent global warming is not statistically significantly related to anthropogenic forcing. On the other hand, we find that greenhouse gas forcing might have had a temporary effect on global temperature.

…our rejection of AGW is not absolute; it might be a false positive, and we cannot rule out the possibility that recent global warming has an anthropogenic footprint. However, this possibility is very small, and is not statistically significant at conventional levels.
