Excuse #9: NASA Scientist Says 17-year Pause in Global Warming Just 'Coincidence'

Climate scientists have put forward the ninth major explanation for the 17-year pause in global warming: it's just a coincidence.

Duh.. at other times these deniers say climate change is too complex..go figure, huh?

This is better than reading the deep ocean theory over and over, that story got worn-out. Even the people selling it grew weary.

Here's the paper (registration required):

http://www.nature.com/ngeo/journal/v7/n3/full...

And here's a link with a synopsis, a graph and a quote from the paper:

http://blog.hotwhopper.com/2014/02/gavin-schm...
We conclude that use of the latest information on external influences on the climate system and adjusting for internal variability associated with ENSO can almost completely reconcile the trends in global mean surface temperature in CMIP5 models and observations. Nevertheless, attributing climate trends over relatively short periods, such as 10 to 15 years, will always be problematic, and it is inherently unsatisfying to find model–data agreement only with the benefit of hindsight. We see no indication, however, that transient climate response is systematically overestimated in the CMIP5 climate models as has been speculated, or that decadal variability across the ensemble of models is systematically underestimated, although at least some individual models probably fall short in this respect.

Most importantly, our analysis implies that significant warming trends are likely to resume, because the dominant long-term warming effect of well-mixed greenhouse gases continues to rise. Asian pollution levels are likely to stabilize and perhaps decrease, although lower solar activity may persist and volcanic eruptions are unpredictable. ENSO will eventually move back into a positive phase and the simultaneous coincidence of multiple cooling effects will cease. Further warming is very likely to be the result.
Let deniers knock themselves out claiming no warming: in a year or so they will be exposed as fools and liars (to anybody who didn't realise what they are already).

I view climate analysts the same as I do car dealers, no money up front. When they display the product I'll hand over the cash.

Evidence. Of what, we do not know. Sunspot activity is certainly a factor in solar output but the Maunder Minimum was a one off event (in recorded history) with no cause identified. The effect is also hard to determine since we did not have a global system of instrumentation in place at the time. So we are left to infer and speculate. And it is somewhat thrown off by the fact that some areas DID have instrumentation so regional climate change will be confused with global climate effects.

An area of study, not an area of theory.

It's amazing, that anyone would post anything related to NASA concerning global warming. It's been proven beyond doubt, that NASA intentionally manipulated historic temperature data to fit an agenda of showing warming. They left out data and knew by leaving out data, it would show a cooler historical record, thereby totally malforming recent temperature data and chart representations. This wasn't science. It was Left wing lunacy, mostly because the idiots thought they wouldn't be caught.

The vile venom we get everyday by the media and the lies that pile up higher then a mountain has caused disbelief in people. Politically, it is just one side or another in practically everything now. A mini ice age would be interesting. We will see if people live by their verbal convictions then.

Supporters of carbon regulations like to label those who don’t share their beliefs as “climate deniers.” But it’s important to look at what they’re denying. It’s certainly not the facts. A more accurate term would be “climate realists.”

Lol this is like a liberal cartoon.
It is laughable since scientists have not yet gotten the dim and the political ideologists to understand the simple fact that AGW is about the increase of the global average surface temperature. Even the fact that the 'surface' includes a LOT of ocean (to 600 to 1000 meters) and land (to about 150 meters) i.e. how far the warming penetrates defines the 'surface'. Air is almost irrelevant and the charts they squabble over are charts of meterology. Not even the entire air column but the temperature at 2 meters.

But it is much too complicated to explain to those like "Kaitlyn Renee" who do not understand that scientific facts are not a political platform.

Global warming Nazis owe their allegiance and immersion in the "science" to a distorted mathematics they have made their god. Just as the mathematically illiterate embraced Nash's Equilibrium proof and have allowed international economics to be keyed to a sophist mathematics, a mathematics proving Marxism can sneak up on human kind from even delusional thinking by finding patterns in chaos. Nash pointed the way... delete competitive excellence from the equation. American Leftists and Marxists embrace the new math with a wow and a flutter... Hollywood makes movies of something that sounds good, but they don't understand.

So, global warming Nazis have deleted cool data from the historical record they use to form their views. Excellence in science is simply deleted from the data and subsequent models. When it is proven that NASA, Mann and many others have intentionally deleted data and manipulated dishonestly the remaining until the Nobel committee decides to give every global warming Nazi a prize, or at least they claim.

Absolute proof of the highest levels of the global warming Nazi community's using subterfuge, falsehoods and rewriting the past to continue their scams on the world in collusion with political agendas written of and debated in the 1970s by Marxists squabbling about using environmental issues to keep control of the waning Vietnam era cowards and traitors... check out their heady discussions in Ramparts magazine of that era, as it was nearing its publication end.
