Top mainstream climate scientists reached for a new scientific consensus. This could change pretty much everything, and we can only imagine the effect of this consensus.
The new paper was created by scientists Benjamin Santer. It makes an excellent addition to the “ever-expanding” volume of “hiatus” literature. The paper consists of popular arguments and satellite temperature datasets.
This paper provides detailed information about the failure of climate models. This refers to models that couldn’t predict or replicate the slowdown of global temperatures in 21st century.
“In the early twenty-first century, satellite-derived tropospheric warming trends were generally smaller than trends estimated from a large multi-model ensemble,” Santer’s paper reads. The paper was published on Monday.
“Over most of the early twenty-first century, however, model tropospheric warming is substantially larger than observed. Model overestimation of tropospheric warming in the early twenty-first century is partly due to systematic deficiencies in some of the post-2000 external forcings used in the model simulations,” read the abstract.
Prominent critics of global climate didn’t expect for anything like this to happen. Dr. Roger Pielke, Sr. had quite an interesting reaction after the paper was published. Well, ‘shocking’ fits better than ‘interesting.’
Climate scientists are now going against Texas Republican Sen. Ted Crus for his comments on the global warming “hiatus.” Ted Cruz talked about this during the 2015 congressional hearing. Activist scientists did their best to “airbrush” the information about the global warming slowdown. There was no such information in the records, and the media released a story saying that this is just a myth.
Well, this is something we should all think about. This consensus will probably trigger unwanted reactions, but hopefully, the situation will improve in near future.
What do you think about this new paper? Do you think this consensus will be accepted? How will Americans react to it?
