How About Some Humility?

I admire scientists who can admit to ignorance and uncertainty -- as these do in response to a mysterious pause in solar flaring. It's a truly scientific mindset that's completely lacking among the "climate scientists" constantly beating the alarmist gong, who express a level of cocky confidence in their conclusions that more credible scientists should (but don't) repudiate. 

Despite great strides, we still actually know very little about how and why natural forces work as they do. But nobody ever landed a major government research grant, or made the newspaper, or justified another expansion of government, admitting that the root causes of global climate change remain mysterious.
