Credibility of Climate Predictions…and more

On Jonova’s last post, a letter to Dr Paul Bain, she added a list of scientific references that point to falsifying AGW, climate change, global warming, call it what you will…

The list deserves a second look, so I have added it below for future reference. Then I must ask, where is the ‘warmist’ evidence that has not been falsified? Or is it all a scam or hoax? Dr Bain must be wishing he had never written his item in Nature magazine.
