Classic Quotes, Glassman

"Also, and notwithstanding the preachings of the AGW crowd, science has nothing to do with majority opinions or consensuses. Science advances as models prove more and more reliable at making predictions. When a model makes a nontrivial prediction that proves out, it becomes a theory. When science has exhausted the implications of a model, and every embedded prediction has been validated, the model becomes a law. The rule in science is that at one time only one man knew or suspected the ultimate power of his model."
