Climate Alarmists Finally Admit ‘We Were Wrong About Global Warming’

Breitbart:

Delingpole—–Climate alarmists have finally admitted that they’ve got it wrong on global warming.

This is the inescapable conclusion of a landmark paper, published in Nature Geoscience, which finally admits that the computer models have overstated the impact of carbon dioxide on climate and that the planet is warming more slowly than predicted.

The paper – titled Emission budgets and pathways consistent with limiting warming to 1.5°C –  concedes that it is now almost impossible that the doomsday predictions made in the last IPCC Assessment Report of 1.5 degrees C warming above pre-industrial levels by 2022 will come true.

In order for that to happen, temperatures would have to rise by a massive 0.5 degrees C in five years.

Since global mean temperatures rarely rise by even as much as 0.25 degrees C in a decade, that would mean the planet would have to do 20 years’ worth of extreme warming in the space of the next five years.

This, the scientists admit, is next to impossible. Which means their “carbon budget” – the amount of CO2 they say is needed to increase global warming by a certain degree – is wrong. This in turn means that the computer models they’ve been using to scare the world with tales of man-made climate doom are wrong too.

One researcher – from the alarmist side of the argument, not the skeptical one – has described the paper’s conclusion as “breathtaking” in its implications.

He’s right. The scientists who’ve written this paper aren’t climate skeptics. They’re longstanding warmists, implacable foes of climate skeptics, and they’re also actually the people responsible for producing the IPCC’s carbon budget.

In other words, this represents the most massive climbdown from the alarmist camp.

  1. “What will it take for people to recognize that a community of scientists are learning objective truths about the natural world and that you can benefit from knowing about it?” –Neil de Grasse Tyson

    I dunno, Neil…what will it take?

  2. Nah, just look at the comments over on BB regarding this article. The true believers are still true believers and will be when the next glacier covers their unbathed asses.

  3. I wonder how long it would take for people not allowed on the “ladder,” who decided to just make “shite” up, and invent a whole new “theory,” so they wouldn’t have to compete with old geezers and their old “theories” already on the “ladder,” for spots on the “ladder” – to age out from the highest height their personal incompetence could take them, and retire? On the “ladder” holders’ dimes, of course.
