Falsificationism 2.0? Imre Lakatos’s concepts of progressive and degenerating research programs. (Must-listen MP3 of his 1974 lecture). from PhilosophyofScience
So would you say the AGW research programme was progressive or degenerating?
Co2 effect discovered, GW theory produced much earlier than the effect was seen so in the beginning progressive.
Modeling started at a similar time when co2 forcing came in effect so it is hard to say.
