'The IPCC doesn’t want to include some findings that run counter to its storylines' -- 'You may wonder how it is that the IPCC admits that the models perform so poorly on the decade to decade-and-a-half time scale but that they have 'very high confidence that climate models reproduce the observed large-scale patterns and multi-decadal trends in surface temperature, especially since the mid-20th century.' We wonder too.' -- 'At the longer trend lengths, the models do even worse, as the observed trends fall at orbelow the lower bound of the 95 percent range of the collection of model projections...Lucia is left to wonder whether the “leaked draft is a hoax.” For the IPCC’s sake, let’s hope it is. For if it is not a hoax, then it is a lie. Maybe they will rectify the situation at the upcoming meeting later this month in Stockholm where they are set to approve the final document. Our guess is that they won’t, and instead will go forward with an outdated and misleading report. If this proves to be the case, it may well be part and parcel to the IPCC’s ultimate demise.'
