Let me TRY, and I emphasize TRY, to straighten you and the other contrarians out.<quoted text>
The scientists "couldn't see' where the warming went because Not One Single Climate Model predicted where the missing energy went so these climate experts did not know where to begin to look.
To this day the experts are guessing (without benefit of a climate model that successfully forecast this mystery) the energy is "SOMEWHERE" in the oceans and perhaps someday they may find it :-)
Too funny because; Time And Time Again these facts do not in the slightest way shake the faith of the true believers in CAGW.
Not One Single Climate Model is perfect.
Not One Single Climate Model is chiseled in stone.
Not One Single Climate Model is Fate, boy.(You believe in Fate, boy?)
Climate models are the best estimation of events that could possibly happen. For all their failings, they are pretty damn good. And the information that we have seen lately indicates that they err on the conservative side. Their inaccuracy seems to be in not forecasting the severity already seen and the seriousness of what's coming.
IF...this slowdown in the rate of warming is supposed to be a precursor to a genuine cooling, then I need you to tell me what is reversing a 100+ year trend. Tell us (and back it up) what the models missed that is suddenly causing a reversal of warming.
