But man-made global warming "is settled"

Check out this bit from the Philly Inquirer (with a h/t to James Taranto) prior to our recent winter storm:

"This could wind up being a historic event," said Louis Uccellini, a winter-storm expert who is director of the National Centers for Environmental Prediction, outside Washington. . . .

"It looks really impressive," said Henry Margusity, a meteorologist with Accu-Weather Inc., the commercial service in State College, Pa. . . .

The latest forecasts are starkly different from the outlooks earlier in the week when the computer models that meteorologists use to forecast the weather had the storm passing out to sea, with minimal impact on Philadelphia.

Uccellini said that some of the early model runs had heavy snow in Delaware and nothing in Philadelphia. However, subsequent runs have brought the snows farther north and west.

"The computer models play their own games," said Margusity, "but the reality is they always come farther north."

Yep, our predictions and our computer models can't even accurately measure what a major storm will do on a daily basis, yet thousands -- even millions! -- of years of climate change on our planet cannot be debated because the science is "settled" and the argument "is over": Global warming is gonna kill us all.
