Now Even ‘Hockey Stick’ Mann Admits The ‘Pause’ In Global Warming Is Real

“That fecking glacier should have melted by the beginning of last year”

The “Pause” in global warming that has been going on since 1998 and has continued through nearly two decades of denial and increasing hysteria from the Warmageddonist camp is real, not an urban myth concocted by evil ‘deniers’, a study has found. The publication of this research seems to have  opened a major schism within the CAGWARTs (Carbon dioxide Anthropogenic Global Warming Alternative Reality Troublemakers) camp.

“It has been claimed that the early-2000s global warming slowdown or hiatus, characterized by a reduced rate of global surface warming, has been overstated, lacks sound scientific basis, or is unsupported by observations. The evidence presented here contradicts these claims,” the paper in Nature Climate Change says.

Though the paper’s findings are not controversial, few serious scientists dispute the evidence of the temperature datasets showing that there has been little if any global warming for nearly 19 years, leaving the scaremongering to politicians and publicity junkies like Brian Cox and Bill Nye The Science Guy (who sounds like a mad scientist character in Viz but really is a science fan on US television) it represents a huge blow to the climate alarmist “consensus”, beloved of showbiz and media luvvies like Leonardo di Craprio, George Clowney, Sting (the punters for carbon taxes) and  Mad Madge have all embraced the propaganda that aimed to deny the “Pause’s” existence.

First, the study was published in Nature Climate Change a fervently alarmist journal which rarely if ever runs papers that cast doubt on the man-made-global-warming scare narrative.

Secondly, it directly contradicts a widely-reported study produced by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) last year which attempted to deny the existence of the “Pause” (also known as the “hiatus”). This NOAA study was widely mocked, quickly debunked and is now the subject of a Congressional investigation.

. What’s novel about this new study in Nature Climate Change, though, is that it’s not skeptics and conservatives doing the mocking and the debunking: it’s the kind of people who in the past were very much in the alarmist camp, including – bizarrely – none other than Michael “Hockey Stick” Mann, who co-authored the paper.

What we have here, in other words, is signs of a major rift within the climate alarmist camp with different factions adopting different tactics to cope with the failure of their collapsing narrative.

This divergence in the alarmist camp is now going to create a dilemma for all those liberal and left leaning news media organisations, led by the BBC, the Guardian and the New York Times and CNN, which reported on NOAA’s “death of the pause” study as if it were a reliable and credible thing.

Here’s a quote that sums up why politics and science should not mix.

If a scientist, or a political leader using science, insists on making a point based on evidence even when clear criticisms undermining their use of that evidence have been raised —- and they fail to respond to those criticisms —- one is warranted in suspecting that the cherry-picked evidence is but a smokescreen for a deeply held value commitment serving an improper direct role, and that ultimately, the evidence is irrelevant.
