Richard Lindzen, Unplugged - Part 1
"What was done, was to take a large number of models that could not reasonably simulate known patterns of natural behavior (such as ENSO, the PDO, etc.), claim that such models nonetheless accurately depicted natural climate variability, and use the fact that these models could not replicate the warming episode from the mid-'70s to the mid-'90s, to argue that forcing was necessary and that the forcing must have been due to man.......This argument makes arguments in support of intelligent design sound rigorous by comparison. It constitutes a rejection of scientific logic, while widely put forward as being 'demanded' by science.......This is a sad point for science."
