Global warming 'pause' may last for 20 more years
A paper in the peer-reviewed journal Climate Dynamics – by Professor Judith Curry of the Georgia Institute of Technology and Dr Marcia Wyatt – amounts to a stunning challenge to climate science orthodoxy.
Not only does it explain the unexpected pause, it suggests that the scientific majority – whose views are represented by the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) – have underestimated the role of natural cycles and exaggerated that of greenhouse gases.
Pause: How the Earth's average temperature defied scientists' predictions by remaining almost the same
The research comes amid mounting evidence that the computer models on which the IPCC based the gloomy forecasts of a rapidly warming planet in its latest report, published in September, are diverging widely from reality.
The graph shown above, based on a version published by Dr Ed Hawkins of Reading University on his blog, Climate Lab Book, reveals that actual temperatures are now below the predictions made by almost all the 138 models on which the IPCC relies.

The pause means there has been no statistically significant increase in world average surface temperatures since the beginning of 1997, despite the models’ projection of a steeply rising trend.
According to Dr Hawkins, the divergence is now so great that the world’s climate is cooler than what the models collectively predicted with ‘five to 95 per cent certainty’.

Global warming my arse. If it was real WHY did the scientists lie about the figures in 2009/2010?
I am fucking sick of government bullshit. Deception is the name of the game and I am fucking
pissed off with it. When they come knocking at my door asking me to put in a fake vote for a fake greedy motherfucking psychopath. I will stamp on their fucking head and I don't work for the government so that isn't bullshit.
