That's the order from the 'Tallbloke' and as I am not particularly tall, I'll just do as I'm told! And it's worth it because he neatly eviscerates a paper produced by some of the cult leaders of the 'AGW scientology' movement, the likes of Ben Santer, Susan Solomon, Tom Wigley, Julie Arblaster and Peter Stott. These worthies have produced a paper entitled: ‘Identifying human influences on atmospheric temperature’. In it, they attempt, quite rightly and admirably, to differentiate between solar influence, man-made influence and "the noise [my emphasis] of internally generated variability" influence as causes of the rise in global temperatures in the latter part of the 20th century. But now it becomes necessary to watch the pea!
What they have actually done is to conflate outside influences, the sun, etc, with man-made influences so that now the 'anthropological' element of so-called 'Anthropological Global Warming' (AGW) is quietly lost in the 'noise':
The main bone of contention in the climate debate is the question of whether the late 20th century warming was predominantly caused by the more active than average Sun, some longer term modes of internal variability, or by increasing human emission of carbon dioxide. Now the ‘Team’ is trying to conflate the solar influence with human influence and contrast these two entirely different factors with internal natural variability, which they call ‘noise’.
This panicking effort to hide the effect(?) of CO2 is essential because, of course, it is man-made CO2 which the hystericals have pointed at and blamed for causing global warming. However, in the past 15 to 20 years there has been hardly any warming at all and yet China, India and most of South East Asia has been pumping out CO2 in, literally, eye-watering amounts. If in fact, global variations in climate are simply the result of natural cycles, or, the sun having a bout of acne and throwing out a gale-force of cosmic rays, or whatever, then the political red meat in the AGW movement simply disappears - along with all of their wretched agitators.
The fact that it is their so-called experts who have been forced to own up even as they try to obfuscate the truth is utterly damning.
