Another excuse for ‘the pause’ – it’s a ‘blip’ from volcanoes, or something

“It’s anything –ANYTHING!!– except solar cycles,” pleaded the desperate climate scientist who was beginning to realize he’d been wrong for over 20 years.

Watts Up With That?

From the University of Edinburgh:

Warming slow-down not the end of climate change, study shows

A slow-down in global warming is not a sign that climate change is ending, but a natural blip in an otherwise long-term upwards trend, research shows.

In a detailed study of more than 200 years’ worth of temperature data, results backed previous findings that short-term pauses in climate change are simply the result of natural variation.

The findings support the likelihood that a current hiatus in the world’s year-on-year temperature increases – which have stalled since 1998 – is temporary.

Scientists from the University of Edinburgh analysed real-world historic climate records from 1782 to 2000, comparing them with computerised climate models for the same timescale.

They were able to separate the influence on climate trends of man-made warming – such as from greenhouse gas emissions – and of natural influences in temperature – such as…
