The Meaning Of ‘Climate Consensus’, In A Single Picture

Here’s how one can understand what has been happening to mainstream climate science during the last few decades: far from a reasonable attempt to figure out the whys and whats of the Earth’s climate, it’s mostly been a blind pursuit of the latest data, and especially of the ENSO index.

Three ages of scientific consensus on climate change

What climate scientists have been agreeing upon

You can read more at “Is Climatology A Thing Of The Past?“, now updated to be independent from Tamino’s opinions:

In a world they believed was cooling, climatologists found ways to explain why it was cooling. In a world they believe is warming, climatologists find ways to explain why it is warming. The fact that those beliefs are based on scientific data and theories means nothing more than current and past climate science have been scientifically feeling their ways through a very obscure dark. No sign any of us is any the wiser.

ps H/T to Steven Goddard for the ENSO graph (btw…by looking at it, I had one of my extremely rare expletive-laden moments).
