Die Klimazwiebel: The end of climate summits as we knew them?
Top climate researchers have had enough, though. Several leading experts at internationally renowned institutes in Germany are demanding an end to the climate summit charade. It is time to begin confronting the reality of a warmer future rather than meekly insisting that global warming can be slowed without taking action to make that happen, they say.

Our Chaotic Climate System « Roy Spencer, Ph. D.
Over the last quarter century, mainstream climate science has changed dramatically, from a paradigm where climate changes naturally to one where climate forever remains the same unless humans meddle with it.

The reasons for this paradigm shift are clearly not based on science.
IPCC – Full Speed Ahead « the Air Vent
It is really unfortunate that they have chosen to report the Orsi borehole mathmagic as though it were a thermometer, but this is the paleoscience chapter so they need to put something in. That paper claimed a 0.8C/decade warming in the last two decades. Readers will recall that this was the paper which Steig famously claimed “proved” O’Donnell was wrong. Besides the whole field of borehole thermometery being ridiculous, it seems to me that the 0.8C/decade value is completely outside the realm of any possibility. I write that because it is 13 times the continental average and were the trend real, nearby thermometers would have obviously detected it.
