I agree that nature is a system of systems and requires a systems thinking approach. Yet the man-made global warming proponents have reduced an understanding of climate change to a machine-age, reductionist equation where CO2 increases result in temperature increases (CO2 LEADS temperature increases). This has been proven wrong. In fact, CO2 lags temperature changes as the oceans release CO2 when the temperature increases. It would certainly be a welcome changes in the politicized environment of climate science if a systems approach was used rather then a machine age approach built on reading the entrails of computer models. This NYT article is informative in this regard
