You Can't Even Tell Us When it's Going to Rain

Why do we continue to validate people unable to predict weather coming next week (let alone in the next decade) as experts who can predict global warming? In fact, I am even unimpressed when several U.N. Scientists who originally signed the IPCC Report are now disputing it's validity. The only thing this assures me of is that science is rarely a "sure thing" or "settled". It also validates the continued argument that this issue is far from decided.
".....over the last decade, global temperatures have cooled. Also, it now seems that the hottest years of the last century were in the 1930s, not the 1990s, as we had been told earlier.":
Even way back in January NewsBusters writes that scientists now believe we may actually be on the brink of another Ice Age:
"The main flaw in the AGW theory is that its proponents focus on evidence from only the past one thousand years at most, while ignoring the evidence from the past million years -- evidence which is essential for a true understanding of climatology. The data from paleoclimatology provides us with an alternative and more credible explanation for the recent global temperature spike, based on the natural cycle of Ice Age maximums and interglacials."
Hey, I have an idea, how about if congress stops passing legislation and regulations that actually do nothing to promote good stewardship of the earth, but only perpetuate one tainted bubble after another.
