New Study: Global Warming Standstill Confirmed, Climate Models Wrong

The period from 2000 to 2016 shows a modest warming trend that the advocates of the anthropogenic global warming theory have labeled as the “pause” or “hiatus.” The strong warming peak observed in 2015-2016, the “hottest year on record,” gave the impression that the temperature standstill stopped in 2014.

Herein, the authors show that such a temperature peak is unrelated to anthropogenic forcing: it simply emerged from the natural fast fluctuations of the climate associated with the El Niño–Southern Oscillation (ENSO) phenomenon. By removing the ENSO signature, the authors show that the temperature trend from 2000 to 2016 clearly diverges from the general circulation model (GCM) simulations.

Thus, the GCMs models used to support the AGWT are very likely flawed. –Nicola Scafetta, Aberto Mirandola and Antonio Bianchin, International Journal of Heat and Technology 35(1), September 2017

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will propose repealing the Clean Power Plan – the Obama administration’s centerpiece regulation to fight climate change – and plans to solicit input on a rule to replace it, according to an EPA document seen by Reuters. The decision marks the agency’s first formal step to sweep away the rule intended to cut carbon emissions from power plants after President Donald Trump signed an executive order in March launching the EPA’s review. —Reuters, 4 October 2017

The postmodernist left on campus is intolerant not only of opposing views but of science itself. The revolution on college campuses, which seeks to eradicate individuals and ideas that are considered unsavory, constitutes a hostile takeover by fringe elements on the extreme left. What may not be obvious from outside academia is that this revolution is an attack on Enlightenment values: reason, inquiry, and dissent. Extremists on the left are going after science. Why? Because science seeks truth, and truth isn’t always convenient. —Heather Heying, The Wall Street Journal, 2 October 2017

Tesla is not so much a car company as it is a cult of personality mixed with a quasi-religious belief in the disruptive superiority of Silicon Valley. —Thornton Mcenery, Above The Law, 3 October 2017

    Al Gore apparently didn’t get the memo …. The Earth Doesn’t Have A Fever .
    It is how ever full of lying self dealing con men , corporate welfare
    leeches , and not so green enviro-mental scam artists .
    Time for the scientific method to reassert itself and governments to stop demanding scientists produce the results they want as a condition of payment .
    Pretend global warming is over when the fuel (cash ) dries up .
