From the article:
“This study will be a blow to any remaining climate-change deniers,” Lovejoy says.“Their two most convincing arguments – that the warming is natural in origin, and that the computer models are wrong – are either directly contradicted by this analysis, or simply do not apply to it.”
Lovejoy’s study applies statistical methodology to determine the probability that global warming since 1880 is due to natural variability. His conclusion: the natural-warming hypothesis may be ruled out “with confidence levels great than 99%, and most likely greater than 99.9%.”

Few sleazy slimy toxic AGW denier liars can scientifically present a Science Journal sigh-ants paper that can pass Peer Review. That's why oil, energy, business, & re-pubic-lick-un propaganda, Pee_R poop is presented by sleazy slimy toxic AGW denier liars on public, but by no means reputable websites.
