I can envisage an irony of history where climatology enters a period of crisis and loses its central place in public discourse about climate change, thus opening up discursive spaces for pragmatic options to deal with the problem. – Reiner Grundman
I just spotted this article by Reiner Grundman at Die Klimazwiebel entitled The coming crisis of climate science? Good article, a recap of recent highlights in the MSM and the IPCC’s dilemma over the pause, problems with climate models, etc. I found the last sentence in his article to be irresistible. I hope that it is prophetic.
Update: just spotted something else of relevance Amid uncertainty, climate scientists blame mankind for global warming. The article claims that the word ‘uncertainty’ is used 42 times in the 31 page Summary for Policy Makers. Uncertain T. Monster is appreciative of the token acknowledgement, but most unhappy over the highly confident conclusions. Can someone count the occurrence of ‘uncertainty’ in the AR4 SPM?
