Even Michael Mann is running away from Tom Karl’s disappearing hiatus fraud.
A dataset update from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, aimed at removing biases in the data, wiped out the “pause” — to much fanfare and controversy. “Newly corrected and updated global surface temperature data …. do not support the notion of a global warming ‘hiatus,’” the study found.
a group of top scientists has just published a paper in Nature Climate Change robustly defending the idea that, as they put it, “The observed rate of global surface warming since the turn of this century has been considerably less than the average simulated rate” produced by climate change models.
The authors include noted climate researchers Gerald Meehl of the National Center for Atmospheric Research, Benjamin Santer of Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, and Michael Mann of Penn State University. The research was led by John Fyfe of the Canadian Centre for Climate Modelling and Analysis at the University of Victoria
This indicates to me that Representative Lamar Smith has some serious goods (whistleblowers) on Tom Karl’s fraud, and the co-fraudsters are trying to give themselves cover. I wonder if Admiral Titley will retract his fraudulent testimony made during the Cruz hearing?
