Reference: CO2 models falling short, Bangkok Post, December 7, 2009
In the Pliocene warm period the earth was warmer than it is now but with atmospheric carbon dioxide about the same as it is now. This state of the world is inconsistent with the global warming climate model in which warming is driven primarily by atmospheric carbon dioxide. The obvious conclusion is that the global warming climate model is wrong and carbon dioxide is not the principal driver of global warming. However, unwilling to give up on their war against carbon dioxide, the warmists have devised a fudge factor - an unknown and unobservable latent heat effect - that would explain why it is cooler now than the Pliocene (CO2 models falling short, Bangkok Post, December 7, 2009) noting that not now, but a few hundred years from now, extra heat from the carbon dioxide that is already in the air now will make the data come out right and validate their climate model. It is clearly an exercise in pushing the Copenhagen agenda and not unbiased scientific inquiry.
