“The exception tests the rule.” Or, put another way, “The exception proves that the rule is wrong.” That is the principle of science. If there is an exception to any rule, and if it can be proved by observation, that rule is wrong.
Unbelievable crap about climate sensitivity over on Cook’s site. Alarmists have now thrown Hansen’s 1988 predictions under the bus, and have reverted back to his pre-historic 1981 predictions, from the days before he became an alarmist.
So why is Cook ignoring the 1988 predictions? Simple – because they show extremely low climate sensitivity and obliterate his attack on Lindzen. Climate sensitivity is less than Hansen’s zero emissions Scenario C.
The evidence shows that climate sensitivity is much lower than Hansen hypothesized. So how do they react? By bumping the forecasts upwards. Climate alarmism nothing to do with science.
We’ve learned from experience that the truth will come out.
