California Drought – A Novel Statistical Analysis of Unrealistic Climate Models and of a Reanalysis That Should Not Be Equated with Reality
Guest post by Bob Tisdale UPDATE: See the update at the end of the post. In the post The Obvious Failures of Climate Science That Mainstream Media Ignores, I promised to discuss the paper behind the National Science Foundation press release Cause of California drought linked to climate change. That paper was Swain et al.…
. . . It’s tough to employ climate models so you can claim that manmade greenhouse gases caused the California drought, when the models used by Swain et al. can’t simulate the lack of warming of one of the key metrics associated with it.
In summary, Swain et al. performed “novel” statistical techniques on dubious climate models and on a reanalysis that should “not be equated with ‘observations’ or ‘reality’”. Swain et al. also failed to note or consider that the sea surface temperatures of the eastern extratropical Pacific cooled from 1989 to 2012 and that the North Pacific as a whole showed no warming for that same time period, while the climate models they employed showed the oceans warming drastically during those periods.

We just know when we're being lied to, thats all.
Its not something that can be taught so there's not much we can do for those on the left who are so easily manipulated.
I mean if you equated empty platitudes and bumper sticker slogans to Presidential qualifications back in 2008, then you're on your own.
