The New ‘Consensus’ On Global Warming – a shocking admission by “Team Climate”Posted: June 21, 2017
In his 2011 paper “Separating signal and noise in atmospheric temperature changes: The importance of timescale” Benjamin Santer et al. stated that:
“Our results show that temperature records of at least 17 years in length are required for identifying human effects on global-mean tropospheric temperature.”
Santer’s “at least 17 year” chickens came home to roost nearly four years ago, with RSS satellite data showing a seventeen year “pause” in atmospheric global warming.
At this, Santer’s 2011 findings were lovingly interpreted, in plain English, by legendary WUWT contributor Werner Brozek :
“There is a lot of noise in the climate system and it is quite possible that the noise can mask the effects of man-made carbon dioxide for a period of time. However if the slope is zero for 17 years, then we cannot blame noise any more but we have to face the facts that we humans do not affect the climate to any great extent.” (2013)
Nearly four years on, Santer et al (with Mikey on board!) publish their latest capitulation into the dark and sordid world of “sceptical science pause denialism”!
You literally wouldn’t read about it, especially not from Ben Santer and Mikey Mann et al!

More importantly, the paper discusses the failure of climate models to predict or replicate the “slowdown” in early 21st century global temperatures, which was another oft-derided skeptic observation.
“In the early twenty-first century, satellite-derived tropospheric warming trends were generally smaller than trends estimated from a large multi-model ensemble,”…
