No Global Warming For 15 Years. The Models MUST Be Wrong

The warmist German magazine Focus reports that the science of warming isn’t actually so settled, after all:

However, (former BBC science editor David) Whitehouse explains further, the IPCC had predicted a temperature increase of of 0.2°C per decade because of the anthropogenic greenhouse effect. But this warming has not occurred.

“We are now at a point where temperature stagnation is dominating the climate development. One cannot ignore that, even if is not 30 years,” Whitehouse believes. “It is now time for the IPCC and the scientific community to recognize the temperature stagnation as reality.”…

With this, it is becoming very clear that the scientific debate over the greenhouse effect is not yet over… Whitehouse points out that climate simulations, like those carried out at the Hadley Climate Research Unit, indeed show periods of stagnation lasting up to a decade. In the models they occur about every 80 years. However, none of the simulations up to now have shown a pause of 15 years. Also the models that run on the super-computers of the Hamburg Climate Research Centre also show such plateau phases.

“The physical causes are still unclear, and our simulations show them occurring at other times. Thus the models are not consistent with the current observations,” admits Jochem Marotzke, Director of the Max Planck Institute for Meteorology in Hamburg.
