A recent paper employed expert statistical analysis to proved that currently climate models fail to reproduce fluctuations of sea surface temperatures in the North Atlantic, a key region affecting global weather and climate. H/T to David Whitehouse at GWPF for posting a revew of the paper. I agree with him that the analysis looks solid and the findings robust. However, as I will show below, neither Whitehouse nor the paper explicitly drew the most important implication.
At GWPF, Whitehouse writes Climate models fail in key test region (in italics with my bolds):
A new paper by Timothy DelSole of George Mason University and Michael Tippett of Columbia University looks into this by attempting to quantify the consistency between climate models and observations using a novel statistical approach. It involves using a multivariate statistical framework whose usefulness has been demonstrated in other fields such as economics and statistics. Technically, they…
