New paper finds warming has also ‘paused’ in the Arctic; debunks warmist study that claimed to get rid of the ‘pause’ – Published in Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics

The findings differ substantially from the new warmist study by the SkS secret forum participants Cotwan & Way that claims to get rid of the 17+ year pause in global warming by a reanalysis of extrapolated Arctic data. The authors advise “extreme caution” in using reanalyses of Arctic temperatures, such as has been done by Cotwan & Way, stating, “Our results also suggest that studies of the Arctic climate based on reanalyses should be undertaken with extreme caution.”…

More anti-science rants from UN Advisor Jeffrey Sachs — Uses storms/tornado outbreak in U.S. to push global warming: Sachs: ‘Weather tragedy in Illinois. Research shows human-induced warming is likely to lead to more severe thunderstorms’

Background on Sachs via “United Socialist Nations”

In 2009, Sachs addressed the annual conference of the Party of European Socialists
He described the “profound honour “ of addressing the Party of European Socialists and said they were heirs and leaders of the most successful economic and political system in the world, Social Democracy. Social equity, environmental sustainability and fiscal re-distribution were the successful elements, in marked contrast to the US whose taxes were too low and where the poor were ignored.
He asked for PES leadership “for the sake of the world” on social principles, financial regulation and solidarity with the poor. In advance of Copenhagen, he claimed that millions were suffering because of drought caused by western induced climate change and a carbon levy was needed.
He singled out the US as the biggest emitter of CO2 per capita and said it must spend more to save the planet. He promoted the UN Millennium Development Goals and the global target of 0.7% of GDP to fund development. He wants a carbon tax and a financial transactions tax, a global health fund, a global education fund and a global climate fund.
