  1. The robust Pause resists a robust el Niño Still no global warming at all for 18 years 9 months

    Figure 1. The least-squares linear-regression trend on the RSS satellite monthly global mean surface temperature anomaly dataset continues to show no global warming for 18 years 9 months since February 1997, though one-third of all anthropogenic forcings have occurred during the period of the Pause.

    The modelers ought to be surprised by the persistence of the Pause. NOAA, with rare honesty, said in its 2008 State of the Climate report that 15 years or more without warming would demonstrate a discrepancy between prediction and observation. One reason for NOAA’s statement is that there is supposed to be a sharp and significant instantaneous response to a radiative forcing such as adding CO2 to the air.

    The steepness of this predicted response can be seen in Fig. 2, which is based on a paper on temperature feedbacks by Professor Richard Lindzen’s former student Professor Gerard Roe in 2009. The graph of Roe’s model output shows that the initial expected response to a forcing is supposed to be an immediate and rapid warming. But, despite the very substantial forcings in the 18 years 9 months since February 1997, not a flicker of warming has resulted.

    The reason is, of course, CO2 doesn’t warm the planet, it doesn’t delay the heat loss from the atmosphere in any measurable way .. Which is evident!
