Of course not. Because there are no mechanisms built in to “climate change” that allow for the hypothesis to be invalidated
A pause in the pace of global warming does not invalidate research that links climate change to human activity, national science academies in the United States and the United Kingdom said in a joint report last week.
While the science in some areas of climate change continues to evolve, man’s contribution to warming, sea-level increases and the decline in Arctic sea ice is “more certain than ever,” according to the academies. The report by the top scientists in two countries is meant to answer common questions on climate change in language non-scientists can understand.
How can the “science” continue to evolve when they specifically, forcefully, constantly told us that “the science is settled”? Sea level is not out of the ordinary for a typical Holocene warm period. The Arctic has been ice free before, and the talking point about it being ice free in 2013 was a pure fail. In fact, the same Washington Post reported that the Arctic hit a 35 year high.
“Our expectation as scientists always was to see very complex changes in the average temperature of the planet, and that’s exactly what we see,” Benjamin Santer, research scientist at California’s Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, said at a briefing. “The key point is that the stasis — slowdown — as people have termed it over the last 15 years, does not fundamentally invalidate our understanding of the human effects on climate.”
Except, 95% of the models have failed. In real science, scientists would look back at their assumptions and the data and reevaluate them. With the “climate change” cult, they instead change the data and their talking points to fit the assumption that the changes are mostly/solely mankind’s fault. And wrap cold and snow are caused by a warming world. And blame nature for the pause
Temporary cooling from increased volcanic activity or other emissions does not undermine climate models that aim to predict the rate of warming, Santer said.
Hmph. So nature can cause the pause, but it can’t be responsible for the warming. Science! Well, cult. What will they say if the “pause” continues for years and possibly decades? If anyone is a denier, it is the Warmists.
