Iconoclast of the Week

Thomas Crowley from the University of Edinburgh has some stones.

Given the reception that even the most gentle critics of Global Warming get from the scientific community and their hounds in the press, Crowley was pretty brave to announce that the CO2 we emit is saving the world from an ice age so terrible, it could bury Canada, Europe and Asia in giant sheets of ice.

In fact, all that C02 makes it unlikely we'll ever see another ice age. What makes this climate prediction any different from all the others? Unlike the existing climate models that have no predictive value at all, Crowleys model actually worked to simulate past ice ages.

Note: Iconoclast of the Week is not a weekly award. And when it is awarded, no actual prize accompanies the announcement.
