A New Climate Epoch: The Hubrisocene

Blogger James Evans coined a new climate science term in a comment over at Bishop Hill’s blog: Hubrisocene.

His comment was in response to Bishop Hill’s post The CCC abandons science.

“It’s hard to take seriously someone who prefers models to empirical observation”

But we are now living in the Hubrisocene. Any difference between observations and theory is due to problems with the observations. The missing heat is clearly hiding in the one place we can’t look. Most of the universe is invisible. Butter is bad for me, or good for me, I forget – but whatever they said last week is definitely true.
