Reality further diverges from the sacred models. Whatever will the hierophants of the Church of Anthropogenic Global Warming do?

Watts Up With That?

From Duke University, where they validate what we’ve been saying for quite some time: there’s a divergence between climate models and reality.

Global warming progressing at moderate rate, empirical data suggest

DURHAM, N.C. – A new study based on 1,000 years of temperature records suggests global warming is not progressing as fast as it would under the most severe emissions scenarios outlined by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

“Based on our analysis, a middle-of-the-road warming scenario is more likely, at least for now,” said Patrick T. Brown, a doctoral student in climatology at Duke University’s Nicholas School of the Environment. “But this could change.”

The Duke-led study shows that natural variability in surface temperatures — caused by interactions between the ocean and atmosphere, and other natural factors — can account for observed changes in the recent rates of warming from decade to decade.
