Here’s an interesting comment from Willem de Lange over on Climate Audit ‘Ice Ages#2′ thread:
“One of the reasons I got annoyed with the IPCC when I was involved, was an almost universal dismissal of the contribution of natural forcing to the observed warming – particularly the role of decadal-scale climate variability such as the PDO. In discussions with one of our Nobel Peace Prize winning meteorologists back in the 1990s, their position was that the greenhouse effect had overwhelmed natural variability and it just would not be possible for the PDO to switch.”
PDO flipped, possibly soon now, AMO. Plus, solar cycle 24 where are you? Climate Modelers, retune restart jumpstart rebuild your engines.
