BOTTOM FALLING OUT OF THE SCIENTIFIC CASE FOR DANGEROUS HUMAN-CAUSED CLIMATE CHANGE
May 20, 2014: “Corbella: Pause in global warming upsets religious believers”, by Licia Corbella, columnist and the editorial page editor, Calgary Herald, Calgary, Alberta. The presentation by Professor McKitrick was delivered at the Friends of Science 11th Annual Luncheon on May 13, 2014.
“This is the real issue,” says McKitrick. “At the point when the modelers could no longer peek at the answer, they started getting it wrong. Significantly wrong.”
Between 1990 and 2014, CO2 levels increased by 13 per cent. The climate models all agree on what should have happened, which is why the climate religionists at the CRU wanted to cook the books to “hide the decline.”
Fully 111 out of 114 models touted by the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change predicted too much warming.
The models predicted warming of 0.21 C per decade — which is more than four times the actual observed level.
As Hans von Storch of the Institute of Coastal Sciences in Germany stated recently: “If things continue as they have been, in five years, at the latest, we will need to acknowledge that something is fundamentally wrong with our climate models. A 20-year pause in global warming does not occur in a single modelled scenario,” said von Storch, a renowned “consensus” climate scientist.
Indeed, last year, von Storch said: “We’re facing a puzzle. Recent CO2 emissions have actually risen even more steeply than we feared. As a result, according to most climate models, we should have seen temperatures rise by around 0.25 degrees Celsius over the past 10 years. That hasn’t happened. In fact, the increase over the last 15 years was just 0.06 degrees Celsius — a value very close to zero.”
