Excuses for their devastating failures to predict a stop in warming is creating havoc in climate science circles. The latest is that stronger trade winds are the reason, despite CO2 emissions still rising inexorably.
The warmists just wouldn’t be told. Instead, many vilified and marginalised the sceptics who were right, and much of media helped them to do so.
Professor England, from the same University as Professor
Shipoffools Turney is just the latest to find excuses.
Retired meteorologist and scientist William Kininmonth, Chief of Australia‘s National Climate Centre at the Bureau of Meteorology from 1986 to 1998, writes at Jonova:
Winds of change?
An international research team has published an explanation for the recent stasis in global temperature rise but leaves essential questions unanswered. Variation of Pacific Trade Wind speeds may well be linked to changing global temperature, as argued. Why then did the wind strength vary? The given explanation of ‘natural variations’ is neither scientific nor convincing […]
This might explain everything, it’s all about EGO: Quote of the Week: ego driven science
Guest essay by Eric Worrall
Anyone wondering why, in the face of contrary evidence, alarmists (such as Matthew English) have not admitted they were wrong (about ‘the pause’ or any other issue) might find the following quote from the Climategate archive interesting.
Phil Jones of the University of East Anglia Climate Research Unit (CRU) once admitted in a Climategate email that he wants the world to experience ‘climate change’, to vindicate his ego: Continue reading
Anthony Watts counts all the excuses warmists are making now for what they so long denied – the planet not warming over the past 16 years as their climate models predicted:
So far, we’ve heard from Climate Science that ‘the pause’ was caused by:
Too much aerosols from volcanoes, ENSO patterns, missing heat that went to the deep ocean, ocean cooling, low solar activity, inappropriately dealt with weather stations in the Arctic, and stadium waves, to name a few. So much for consensus.[…]
