surprising consensus on those 17 flat years

From an ABC report covering a recent presentation by climate rationalist Lord Christopher Monckton:"Despite an overwhelming majority of climate scientists reaching consensus on human-induced climate change, Lord Monckton says he does not believe there has been any evidence of global warming for 17 years."

From a recent interview in The Australian with IPCC head Rajendra Pachauri:

THE UN's climate change chief, Rajendra Pachauri, has acknowledged a 17-year pause in global temperature rises, confirmed recently by Britain's Met Office.

ABC continue:
He said his research shows 'extreme weather events' cannot be blamed on climate change.

Seems it's not only "his" research...

From the IPCC's recent report into extreme weather (via Roger Pielke Jnr):
A few quotable quotes from the report (from Chapter 4):
  • "There is medium evidence and high agreement that long-term trends in normalized losses have not been attributed to natural or anthropogenic climate change"
  • "The statement about the absence of trends in impacts attributable to natural or anthropogenic climate change holds for tropical and extratropical storms and tornados"
  • "The absence of an attributable climate change signal in losses also holds for flood losses"

Seems Monckton, Pachauri, the IPCC and the British Met Office are reading off the same teleprompter! All hail the new consensus! ABC's activist reporters wouldn't have a clue!
