Schizophrenia at The Economist

The Economist joins other newspapers in reported the resolution of the apparent tropospheric anomaly (Heat and Light). It is actually one of the clearest pieces I've seen so far in the mainstream press on this conclusive work.

But, this being The Economist, the article finishes with a facile paragraph that has more to do with denial than reasonable doubt:

"...The [climate] system itself is incredibly complex. There is only one such system, so comparative studies are impossible. And controlled experiments are equally impossible. So there will always be uncertainty and therefore room for dissent..."

Yes, and evolution is "only a theory".
