lulled back to sleep …

A new paper from one of the most strident of the global warmists defies reality. Only out on a slow news day of Friday, many scientists have taken a look and made their comment on it, after stopping laughing out aloud. Josh is the first to understand what Tom Karl et al have done, attempting to deny the ‘pause’, for which warmists have already come up with 60 odd reasons for it, other than the obvious of natural weather cycles:

Friday funny – Don’t Ever Name It A Lull

Dr Fred Singer is the latest to review it here: The climate warming pause goes AWOL – or maybe not

By S. Fred Singer Oh boy! Get ready to watch yet another big fight about climate change – this time mainly among different groups of climate alarmists. Is there a “pause”? Did global climate really stop warming during the last dozen years, 18 years, or even 40 years – in spite of rising levels of… Continue reading →

Mathematician Ross McKitrick is unimpressed too. A First Look at ‘Possible artifacts of data biases in the recent global surface warming hiatus’ by Karl et al., Science 4 June 2015

Guest essay by Ross McKitrick University of Guelph June 4, 2015 Background The idea that there has been a hiatus in global warming since the late 1990s comes from examination of several different data sets: HadCRUT(land surface + ocean) HadSST(ocean surface only) NCDC(land surface + ocean) GISS(land surface + ocean) RSS(lower troposphere) UAH(lower troposphere) Ocean…

Paris is beckoning, causing rent-seekers like Karl to emerge from their dark corners with what couldn’t be called real science. Manipulating figures over and over to make your desired fit is nonsense.

Christopher Monckton, in his usual, inimitable style hits it home, here at WUWT. Hilarious, Tom Karl will have a red face with smoke coming out of his ears by now:

Has NOAA / NCDC’s Tom Karl repealed the Laws of Thermodynamics?

By Christopher Monckton of Brenchley Tom Karl’s paper (Karl et al. 2015) purporting to abolish the global-warming pause, recently published in Science, may be partly my fault. I first ran across the National Climatic Data Center’s (NCDC) accident-prone director in a Congressional hearing room in about 2009, when I was the witness for the Republicans,…

NOAA/NCDC’s new ‘pause-buster’ paper: a laughable attempt to create warming by adjusting past data

Bishop Hill with the last word: Obamas housekarls dance to his warming tune

Over the last few days I have been copied in on a great deal of correspondence about a new paper in Science from Tom Karl and colleagues, which has “blatant act of political propaganda” written all over it. The claim is that the pause in surface temperature rises is an artefact of the data and that a great deal of jiggery pokery is peformed on the numbers it is possible to get a graph that shows continued warming. The pause is no more.

This could only be written with Paris in mind.

Fortunately, Science distributed the paper to journalists sufficiently early for it to be widely circulated and quite a few people have now had a look. Some of them have even stopped laughing for long enough to write down their thoughts.
