Scientific Journal Forced to Retract ‘Landmark’ Climate Change Study Due to Falsehoods

The journal Nature had to retract the study that claimed oceans were warming due to climate change.

The scientific community was forced to admit that they published fake news and had to retract a false study in the prestigious journal Nature last week.

The journal admitted that a study that indicated oceans were warming rapidly due to the effects of climate change was false. It was initially published in the journal on Oct. 31, 2018, and conducted by academics at the University of California, San Diego’s Scripps Institution of Oceanography. The researchers refused to admit that their results were faulty despite the fact they owned up to making certain errors that affected the results of their work.

They released the following statement at the behest of the journal:
Shortly after publication, arising from comments from Nicholas Lewis, we realized that our reported uncertainties were underestimated owing to our treatment of certain systematic errors as random errors. In addition, we became aware of several smaller issues in our analysis of uncertainty. Although correcting these issues did not substantially change the central estimate of ocean warming, it led to a roughly fourfold increase in uncertainties, significantly weakening implications for an upward revision of ocean warming and climate sensitivity. Because of these weaker implications, the Nature editors asked for a Retraction, which we accept. Despite the revised uncertainties, our method remains valid and provides an estimate of ocean warming that is independent of the ocean data underpinning other approaches. The revised paper, with corrected uncertainties, will be submitted to another journal. The Retraction will contain a link to the new publication, if and when it is published.​

Lewis, a mathematician who is skeptical of the so-called scientific consensus on climate change, wrote a paper in Aug. 2018 debunking the study.

“The headlines all said that the oceans were warming even faster than previously thought. Unfortunately, the authors seem to have made several quite important errors and inappropriate comparisons. Ocean warming appears to be very much in line with earlier IPCC estimates, when correctly calculated, and slower over the last decade or so than predicted by climate models,” Lewis said about the phony conclusions released in the paper he debunked.

Undaunted by the set-back, the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change issued their report about the dangers of ocean warming on the same day the retraction was made. They will continue fanning the flames of hysteria to push their far-left globalist agenda regardless of the facts.

The UN report claims that satellite imagery has shown that “marine heatwaves (periods of extremely high ocean surface temperatures) have very likely doubled in frequency from 1982 to 2016 and that they have also become longer-lasting, more intense and more extensive.”

They also estimate that “between 84% and 90% of marine heatwaves that occurred between 2006 and 2015 can be attributed to anthropogenic (human-caused) warming.”

However, with all of the falsehoods and failed predictions spread by globalists about climate change, it is hard to take their doomsday prognostications very seriously.

People should stop taking any of these toads seriously at least and until they stop using the idiotic term "climate change". If they'd like to assert that humans are causing the Earth to warm or cool then just say that. Stop with the nonsensical language. Climate change is a completely meaningless concept that allows for any amount of wriggle room. Of course the climate changes...so what? The climate has always changed...let me know if it STOPS doing that and I may or may not take note.
climate change

  • n.

    Changes in the Earth's climate, especially those said to be produced by global warming.
  • n.

    a change in the world's climate
noun
a long-term change in the earth's climate, especially a change due to an increase in the average atmospheric temperature: Melting glaciers imply that life in the Arctic is affected by climate change.
https://www.dictionary.com/browse/climate-change

In both of these definitions it seems climate change = global warming. Yet if you call it global warming some portion of people have a fit and insist that "climate change" can mean COOLING. Great so "climate change" means weather then? It's difficult to communicate when people cannot even agree on common terminology. These people want control of others so badly that they're willing to muddy up the language and fudge data to accomplish said control.

...and I'd get caught up discussing the oxymoron "settled science". lol

The climate change global warming crowd are a special breed that's for certain.

we have a four fold increase in uncertainties,

but our methods and conclusions are still valid,

Hmmm,

so what you are really stating is you have some data, then fudged the rest in 'pretend land',
and with these suppositions it is determined that 2 leggahs are in 'fact' responsible for global warming

how about you alter the suppositions then let us know what the results are,

now that would be a proper science paper

ie declare facts, declare 'estimated data', declare suppositions, then work the data using different inputs while leaving the known data the same (only current and historically recorded oceanic temps)

Assumptions and conjecture aside, their data is always a tiny point in time relative to an Earth that is claimed to be 4.5 billion years old. When you bring up recorded incidents like the little ice age which occurred before the industrial revolution, the narrative suddenly has to be redefined. Perhaps that's why it's "climate change" and not "global warming". The so called "science" of "climate change" is so hopelessly unscientific that it's often difficult to even know where to begin.
They also estimate that “between 84% and 90% of marine heatwaves that occurred between 2006 and 2015 can be attributed to anthropogenic (human-caused) warming.”
Statements such as these are completely meaningless without a ton of specifics, but these "scientists" are typically short on specifics and long on generalities.

It would seem he's more than what we know:

https://www.cnn.com/2018/08/26/world/abiymania-ethiopia-prime-minister-abiy-ahmed/index.html

Why Ethiopians believe their new prime minister is a prophet


Since taking office on April 2, Africa's youngest head of government has electrified Ethiopia with a dizzying array of liberal reforms credited by many with saving the country from civil war. Abiy has freed thousands of political prisoners, unblocked hundreds of censored websites, ended the 20-year state of war with Eritrea, lifted a state of emergency, and planned to open key economic sectors to private investors, including the state-owned Ethiopian Airlines.

...our reported uncertainties....

Who writes this drivel? That whole paragraph is a collection of errors...WTF? We're not sure if it's correct but will publish it
anyway...until someone calls us on it.

AND, if the guy that called you on it shakes you to the point of retraction, why aren't the climate changers listening to him?

More morons being moronic. What a highly acclaimed magazine...says who?

Remind me to cancel all thoughts of going to Sweden.
Greta and" No Go Zones" are good enough reasons for me.

a song lyric somewhere:
"Two men say they're Jesus. One of them must be wrong. "
That is why they are always on separate street corners.
