As the data summarized in Models of Earth's temperature since 1860 suggests, it looks increasingly like the answer is “yes.” But the connection between the past 140 years' warming and the coincident rise in CO is not so straightforward.
Models of Earth's temperature since 1860 shows the model-generated projections with and without several of these elements, and suggests, as noted, that the best results are obtained from a combination of natural and anthropogenic forcings.
This careful and thorough peer-reviewed science is in stark contrast to the shrill claims that humans have not caused the recent warming; claims that can be found in many opinion pieces written by non-climatologists (see, e.g., Robinson and Robinson in a 1997 Wall Street Journal editorial; also see “Mediarology”and "Contrarians").

Proponents of this view argue that science must be politically responsible, directed towards socially acceptable goals, and assessed according to its long-range consequences.
The author states: "If we criticize reductionist science for having contributed to the technical and military power of the Nazis, we have to acknowledge that 'politically responsible' biologists provided for their ideological and political power." 3) The author suggests there is a scientific level outside politics, ethics, and applications.
In general, the biology is written for physicists and chemists, and the physics and chemistry are written for biologists, with an attempt to retain some exactitude in the particular science involved in the news.

 Scientific Apologetics- The Scientific Case For Creation
Modern science was started by men who believed in the existence of the God of the Bible.
Operation science deals with the repeatable; it is science of the observable present.
Instead, origin science uses the principles of analogy (also called uniformity) and causality to determine whether or not a model is plausible.

 Theology Today - Vol 36, No. 2 - July 1979 - BOOK REVIEW - Science and Religion in America, 1800-1860
In the course of their effort to make science religious and theology scientific, the orthodox inevitably stumbled into areas of controversy.
For all its concentration upon "theology" and its engagement with science, it does not reflect a technically proficient grasp of historical Protestant theology either before or after 1800.
True science was progressive and value-free It wisely assumed that "scientific language spoke about one world, religious language about another" (p 56), and it moved inexorably toward Darwinism.

Science is the highest personification of the nation because that nation will remain the first which carries the furthest the works of thought and intelligence.
In science it often happens that scientists say, "You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken," and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again.
Where science has been used in the past to erect a new dogmatism, that dogmatism has found itself incompatible with the progress of science; and in the end, the dogma has yielded, or science and freedom have perished together.

 ANTEBELLUM AMERICAN SCIENCE:
The gain was in the suggestion of a greater social impact for science when viewed in a causative relationship to material advancement, while it was loss that science as knowledge was overshadowed in public perceptions by the more obvious economic and life-changing consequences derivative from technology and invention.
Zoology in particular (and the life sciences more generally) constituted the largest area of interest for antebellum scientists, though this was followed closely by geology, which underscores the perception that American science was oriented to a significant degree toward study of the American environment.
Science and science-related employment accounted for 70% of the occupational total for scientists, and employment in multiple positions characterized two-thirds of the scientific population.

At a time when science was coming of age in the new republic, Baconianism, or the "inductive method," provided a tried and true foundation and framework for the blossoming fields not only of natural science but also of all fields of inquiry where "facts" could be gathered.
The period from 1820 to 1860 in the United States was a time when science was moving out of the hands of aristocratic amateurs into the laboratories and studies of professional "scientific men," or "scientists," terms that were rapidly replacing "natural philosopher" by the late 1840s.
While his religious ideas regarding science came as a later outgrowth of his discoveries and theories concerning healing, the seeds were germinating early on in his work with clocks, in his inventions, and in his apparent obsession with all things scientific.

They further suggest their results provide another example in which highly conserved and plainly adaptive behaviors of a circadian system can be understood in terms of the straightforward responses of clock components to factors in the environment of the organism.
The authors suggest their results show that autonomous circadian oscillators are present throughout the body of Drosophila, that individual cells in Drosophila are capable of supporting their own independent clocks, and that the idea of a master oscillator controlling all other oscillators may need to be revised.
In mammals, including humans, the biological clock apparently resides in a group of neuron clusters in a part of the brain called the hypothalamus, a region that responds to many chemical inputs, including the hormone melatonin, an indole derived from the metabolism of serotonin.

This dissertation provides a historical dimension to development studies by tracing, for one region, the emergence of official and popular discourses on rural poverty and “backwardness” and the prospect of their amelioration through science, social science and technology.
The experience of famine (and the specter of it elsewhere) spurred increasingly regular interest and intervention in rural conditions by the state and local elites, and discourses on episodic crises gave way to considerations of poverty.

I argue that during the period that I consider—roughly 1820 to 1860—the landscape of science in culture should be revised to account for multiple, distinct, yet overlapping publics of science.
In the first two chapters, I consider how a scientific culture spread vis-à-vis radical science, gentlemanly education reform, and the new “useful knowledge” industry that they helped to spawn.
In the conclusion, I consider causes for the “disappearance” of such subaltern or alternative science publics as radical science, the Mechanics’ Institutes, and Secularism, from the history and historiography of science, suggesting how cultural studies of discourse can aid in their recuperation and point to possibilities for contemporary interventions in science and technology.

Since the second year of Ansei (1855), after the opening of the ports, officers had been studying navigation and the science of steamships under the Dutch residents of Nagasaki.
By now, their skill and practice had made them able to venture; so the council of the Shogun had decided that Japanese officers and crew should take a ship across the Pacific to San Francisco at the occasion of our first envoy's departure to Washington.
It was in January, the first year of Manen (1860), when our ship, the Kanrinmaru, left Yedo from the shores of Shinagawa.
