How embarrassing!

Oh dear, global climate change might well be natural after all and not manmade, according to a recent paper: McLean, J. D., C. R. de Freitas, and R. M. Carter (2009), Influence of the Southern Oscillation on tropospheric temperature, J. Geophys. Res., 114, D14104. Oh dear! oh dear! the paper has been "peer reviewed" and is not from nutters. The last line of the paper's abstract is wery interesting, ja?

I wonder if the BBC will give as much coverage to the suggestion that the forcing mechanism for global temperature variations may be natural and not due to manmade "greenhouse gases", as it did over the supposed link between MMR and autism? I somehow doubt it since they've been silent about the criticism of the very notion of the greenhouse effect by Gerlich and Tscheuschner. Oh, and that one was "peer reviewed" as well.
