    All you have to do is look at the success of modeling the relatively simpler US economy.

      I’ve heard be said that climate change modelling was invented by macroeconomist to make their failed forecasting method look good by comparison. 🙂

    “…scientists suggest, that global upper-ocean warming rates are also “biased
    low” – to the tune of 24% to 55%.”

    Here’s betting that this (more than an order of magnitude) rate range makes the preferred climate model balance thereby proving the model really works.

    The ever-more desperate straw-grasping by the Church of AGW would be laughable were it not for the economic damage that its scriptures prescribe. To suggest that the heat uptake by the ocean is exactly matching the increased heat generated by the one-third increase in CO2 since 1997 is nonsensical. The rate of uptake cannot increase in the absence of a near-surface temperature increase, which hasn’t occurred. In fact, Newton’s Law of Cooling tells us that as the water temperature rises the rate of uptake decreases. An infinitely more coherent (in both senses) is the the oceans are adjusting to the relatively rapid rise in temperature from 1976 to 1997, something which also occurred between 1945 and 1976.

    This is all just more lies in a lame attempt to justify the dis-proven “Global Warming” hypothesis. How about these so called scientists go back to scratch and start over with a new hypothesis that actually fits the facts, as they should have done the moment their models proved non-predictive 17 years ago.
