95% of Climate Models Wrong

"Warming isn't as bad as was predicted."

Feb. 12, 2014

As climatologist Dr. Roy Spencer reminds us, “the climate models that governments base policy decisions on have failed miserably.” But just how bad are they? Dr. Spencer reviewed 90 different climate models and discovered “95% of the models have over-forecast the warming trend since 1979.” That record isn’t exactly a hot streak. “Whether humans are the cause of 100% of the observed warming or not, the conclusion is that global warming isn’t as bad as was predicted,” he adds. “That should have major policy implications … assuming policy is still informed by facts more than emotions and political aspirations.” And that’s the point: Environmental policy is not based on objective findings, and as a result, we’re left paying a huge price – literally.
