Recovering Global Warming Drama Queens

What’s this? Is sanity beginning to dawn in the world regarding the ‘science’ of global warming?

He said: “I don’t think it’s healthy to dismiss proper scepticism. Science grows and improves in the light of criticism. There is a fundamental uncertainty about climate change prediction that can’t be changed.”

He said that the false claim in the IPCC’s 2007 report that the glaciers would disappear by 2035 had exposed a wider problem with the way that some evidence was presented.

“Certain unqualified statements have been unfortunate. We have a problem in communicating uncertainty. There’s definitely an issue there. If there wasn’t, there wouldn’t be the level of scepticism. All of these predictions have to be caveated by saying, ‘There’s a level of uncertainty about that’.”

All absolutely true. In fact, there is more uncertainty than certainty (the error bars are larger than the claimed signal of warming). I am sort of taken aback that someone in the UK climate world has woken up and finally acted like a scientist. Maybe the fever is breaking finally?
