Proof!?!? We Don't Need No Stinkeen Proof (of AGW)

In a post below, I stated that the single most important thing we could do to change the debate on Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW) was to demand of the warmies that they tell us what facts would disprove AGW theory. Only if something can be disproven is it a science. That is, I argue, step one on the road to ending the AGW madness.

But the road has many bumps, it would seem. Apparently, asking for disprovable facts will only work if the greenie you talk to has any sense of shame, or some modicum of intellectual honesty, or perhaps even a patina of sanity. This from Dr. North at EU Referendum, accurately summarizes the logic of one AGW proponent who authored an article in today's NYT:

We have absolutely no evidence that man-made climate change is causing or will cause more hurricanes, and are unlikely to have that evidence for an impossibly long time – after everyone currently living is long dead – if ever. Therefore, we should proceed on the basis that it is proven.

At least NASA's Jim Hansen makes up facts to support global warming before demanding our wealth and that we devolve our society. This shameless person doesn't even feel the need to do that.
