Bad, bad news for Mrs. Sen. Mark Udall and the rest of the kids at Climate Reality Project.
First James Hansen has to confess that the climate hasn’t warmed in a decade and the Meteorological Office in the United Kingdom was forced to up the ante to 16 years, and now some real scientific types, including actual rocket scientists, have leaped into the fray, proving if nothing else that Al Gore spoke with forked tongue on the subject of “scientific consensus.”
A team of former NASA scientists (the call themselves The Right Climate Stuff, but if they’re going to go toe-to-to-with the likes of Michael Mann, Maggie Fox and the faculty lounge at the University of East Anglia, they might want some “A-Team” skills) has leaped into the fray and drawn a preliminary conclusion: “Most of the alarm regarding AGW results from output of unvalidated computer models.”
Cheap Seats didn’t need NASA to figure that out, and it’s possible the The Right Climate Stuff is being overly charitable, but we do appreciate the note.
The Right Climate Stuff also noted that “While paleoclimate data clearly show CO2 levels rise and fall in the atmosphere hundreds of years after temperature rises and falls due to other causes, the evidence is very weak to support claims of a catastrophic rise in global temperatures caused by CO2 emissions related to human activity.”
Oh by the way, Boulder, you have a problem.
