Here is an example of good climate science. They looked at tree rings for the climate
markers the rings contained, instead of merely the ring width & density. Then they
plotted the temperature and simply projected the up/down pattern to continue.
The result was their prediction that the climate would cool until the mid 1980s then
a warming trend to about 2000 then a serious cold spell. So far the cooling happened,
the warming happened and the last 16 years of little change may be the start of serious
This if a far better record than the IPCC’s over prediction of continued warming,.
While completely missing the current lack of warming.
