Courtesy of John Christy, a comparison between 73 CMIP5 models (archived at the KNMI Climate Explorer website) and observations for the tropical bulk tropospheric temperature (aka “MT”) since 1979.
Now, in what universe do the above results not represent an epic failure for the models? It is time to get back to observing the cooling and see if their is any trend after 2005.
Russ, please keep us apprised of the true believer response to this report. I’m especially interested in the reasonable basis offered to continue believing the output of such models.
