Three Strikes and you're out, AGW

Howard Hayden, professor emeritus of physics at the University of Connecticut. submitted this comment on the draft of the U.S. State Department's Climate Action Report. He notes,

nary a word in the report even pretends to

* establish a link between CO2 and putative global warming

* show that the increase in CO2 concentration is due to human activity instead of natural causes (such as natural warming of the oceans)

* show that either an increase in CO2 concentration or an increase in temperature is, on balance, bad (or worse than laws restricting CO2 emissions) or

* do any science whatsoever.
