Uh, the global warming proponents are apparently claiming a 0.05
degree "per decade" rise as grounds for massive restrictions on
personal freedom. They do have data from further back in time, but
there are good reasons to consider the data unreliable. Their
predictions certainly don't match the measurements over a lousy
two decades.

Or is this what you mean? That neither side has a good case?
