“The gap between observations and models persists. The observed trend deviated by as much as −0.17 °C per decade from the CMIP5 (Coupled Model Intercomparison Project Phase 5; ref. 19) ensemble-mean projection1—a gap two to four times the observed trend.
The hiatus therefore continues to challenge climate science.”
– Nature Climate Change (PEER-REVIEWED STUDY)
“This paper published today in Nature Climate Change by Hedemann et al. not only confirms the existence of “the pause” in global temperature, but suggests a cause, saying “…the hiatus could also have been caused by internal variability in the top-of-atmosphere energy imbalance“.
That’s an important sentence, because it demonstrates that despite many claims to the contrary, CO2 induced forcing of the planetary temperature is not the control knob, and natural variability remains in force.”
The “pause/hiatus” in Global Warming is now nearing 20 YEARS. This despite *record* man-made CO2 emitted over the same period.
Don’t be at all surprised if – CNN, BBC, ABC, CNBC, LATimes, NYTimes, WaPo, The Age, SMH and the rest of the “climate change” obsessed sycophant media don’t report this massively inconvenient climate news. – Too many reputations, jobs, govt grants and funding are now at stake.
The “uncertainty monster” strikes again
We’ve been highly critical for some time of the paper in summer 2015 by Karl et al. that claimed “the pause” or hiatus went away once “properly adjusted” ocean surface temperature data was applied to the global surface temperature dataset. Virtually everyone in the climate skeptic community considers Karl et al. little more than a sleight of hand.
No matter, this paper published today in Nature Climate Change by Hedemann et al. not only confirms the existence of “the pause” in global temperature, but suggests a cause, saying “…the hiatus could also have been caused by internal variability in the top-of-atmosphere energy imbalance“.
That’s an important sentence, because it demonstrates that despite many claims to the contrary, CO2 induced forcing of the planetary temperature is not the control knob, and natural variability remains in force.
Also of note, see the offset as designated…

“The climate system is a coupled non-linear chaotic system, and therefore the long-term prediction of future climate states is not possible.”
AND YET we base trillions upon trillions of dollars of other peoples (your) money on Paris COP junkets to formulate “Save The Planet” policy, windmills and solar panels that are supposed to curb (man-made)
Global Warming Climate Change to below an arbitrary ‘2 degrees C’ by 2100.

THE straight up truth about “unreliable” (green) energy. Well worth 5 mins of your precious time.
“Despite the Danish wind industry’s efforts to downplay it, the resistance exhibited by Danes has spread with disastrous results for the likes of Vestas.
In a clearly unhelpful turn of events for the wind industry in Denmark (and elsewhere for that matter), the growing fury of wind farm neighbours has rattled local governments and forced them into action.”
The sad part is that the “save the planet” lobby with their schizophrenic, ideologically driven push for unrealiable-energy has cost taxpayers, namely the poor, literally trillions of dollars of their hard-earned money to see the light.
Andrew Bolt nailed it commenting: “These are fake scares creating huge damage. Once again, the scaremongering is more dangerous than the scare.”
Denmark is the home of the original eco-fascist profiteers – Vestas – the struggling turbine maker – run by by a band of crooks – once exhorted the world to “Act on (its parallel universe version of the) Facts”: paying $millions to the Australian Greens and Trotskyite fronts like Getup! & Co – pitching lies like the one about the noise from V112s being just like the noise from a fridge 500m away (see our post here).
Whacked with costly lawsuits from wind farm neighbours – in one case a court awarding Dkr 500,000 (A$93,439) in compensation for the substantial reduction in the value of the plaintiffs’ home, caused by incessant turbine noise – the wind industry did its best to collude with a then pliant government to extricate itself from further liability (see our post here).
The Danish wind industry then resorted to the wholesale destruction of…

Shock news 🇩🇪🌱!
And no wonder unrealiable-energy-obsessed Germany is reverting *back* to coal-fired power at record rates after its disastrous €Trillion “Energiewende” fail…
In Europe wind powered Denmark and Germany are vying for top spot on the insane power price ladder.
The world over, businesses and households are fast waking up to the fact that the wind industry line about wind power being ‘free’ and getting cheaper all the time is among the greatest lies ever told.
Sure, when the wind is blowing the Wind Gods don’t send a bill. However focusing on the cost of what it takes to get them turning, misses the fact that operations and maintenance costs on wind turbines approach $25 per MWh, with that figure increasing over time as gearboxes, generators, blades and bearings wear out or disintegrate.
The other, not so minor, cost that the wind industry tends to overlook, is having an equal amount of conventional, synchronous and dispatchable power generating capacity always available to cover those numerous occasions when the Wind Gods determine…

Yet again, “Climate Change” fingered as the great demon that causes unending planetary horror.
However, it appears its evil byproducts – modelled heat and CO2 – are in fact increasing, not decreasing wheat crop yields in Australia…
“Australian Bureau of Agricultural and Resource Economics and Sciences tips record national crop” (Sep 2016)
And their prediction was spot on:
“Australia’s winter grain crop officially a record at 59 million tonnes.” (Feb 2017)
What planet do the CSIRO climate-obsessed, doomsday scenario “scientists” live on?
Sounds to me that they live on the ever-forgiving and lucrative planet of horror-scenario computer models providing endless government (taxpayer funded) “climate” research grants…

According to the Australian CSIRO, “The lines will cross” in 20 years, heralding the end of biotechnology’s ability to improve wheat yields.
Climate change to blame for flatlining wheat yield gains: CSIRO
By Anna Vidot
Updated Thu at 11:59am
Australia’s wheat productivity has flatlined as a direct result of climate change, according to CSIRO research.
While 2016 set a new national wheat harvest record, the national science organisation’s findings indicate that result masks a more troubling long-term trend.
While Australian wheat yields tripled between 1900 and 1990, growth stagnated over the following 25 years.
Zvi Hochman, a senior research scientist with CSIRO Agriculture and Food said the team considered whether other factors could have shared the blame, such as investment in research and development (R&D), changing patterns of land use, and soil fertility.
But those could all be ruled out: investment in grains R&D…

“To underline this insanity, there is actually little evidence of dangerous man-made warming, and even less evidence that anything Australia does to its emissions will make the slightest discernible difference. Nor is there the slightest evidence of real risk from gas fracking, let alone on conventional on-shore gas drilling.
These are fake scares creating huge damage. Once again, the scaremongering is more dangerous than the scare.”
A very important read for the health, wealth and prosperity, not only for Australian society and its environment, but a lesson for the entire world.
This green energy, virtue-signalling insanity must stop.
And to think China and India are opening a new coal-fired power station every week, with thousands in the pipeline. Germany, as well, reverting back to coal after its disastrous €Triliion green-energy experiment “Energiewende” failure.

Green energy and green bans on gas exploration are driving up power prices and killing business. Ten per cent of power generation has already been shut down and the Australian Energy Council now warns we risk “deindustrialising” Australia.
A decade of political dispute and government paralysis over energy policy is to blame for wholesale electricity prices spiking this year to the equivalent of a $50-a-tonne carbon tax, the power industry warns in a submission to the government’s energy security review.
Warning that the country is facing an investment crisis in new power generation, the submission says that more than 5000 megawatts of generation, representing 10 per cent of national capacity, has been decommissioned since 2012 and is not being replaced…
