Another paper has been published in a prestigious scientific journal presenting evidence for a cooler planet for at least the next fifteen years.
The report, published in the journal Nature, argues that changes in oscillating ocean currents in the Atlantic will cause cooling in North America and Europe, while Pacific temperatures will remain flat.
More significantly, this research raises serious questions about the IPCC predictions that so much of the current policy discussions are based upon.
Physicist and ex-Harvard professor Lubos Motl, who was not involved in the research, says the discovery of such a large, previously unknown factor indicates a “critical flaw” in modeling predictions, “no paper so far has even properly combined the effects of ENSO, PDO, and AMO”. Motl believes the research indicates that IPCC climate predictions will be incorrect for as much as 70 years in the future.
Which is another way of saying, the debate over global warming is definitely not over.
