Doctor Krauthammer Misses on Science

Charles Krauthammer writes his version of an agnostic column on global warming, but misses here:
Consider: If Newton's laws of motion could, after 200 years of unfailing experimental and experiential confirmation, be overthrown, it requires religious fervor to believe that global warming -- infinitely more untested, complex and speculative -- is a closed issue.
Newton's laws weren't overthrown, they were subsumed within Einstein's. See Wikipedia.
