MASSIVE GLOBAL COOLING process discovered "could explain the recent disagreements" between models and reality.

According to recent a recent announcement:

Atmospheric chemists from France and Germany, however, can now show that isoprene can also be formed without biological sources in the surface film of the oceans by sunlight and so explain the large discrepancy between field measurements and models. The new identified photochemical reaction is therefore important to improve the climate models.

And the commentary in the Register (which may not be entirely accurate) says:

Global models at the moment assume total emissions of isoprene from all sources – trees, plants, plankton, the lot – of around 1.9 megatons per year. But, according to the new research, the newly discovered “abiotic” process releases as much as 3.5 megatons on its own – which “could explain the recent disagreements” between models and reality.

But if it is true, this process is enough to explain up to 6C/century difference between the predictions and the pause, then it must be massive in its effect and if so, it could mark the end of the Global Warming scare (in a way that doesn’t involve large numbers of academics going to court on charges of fraud, corruption, embezzlement, etc.)

    Thar argument will be ‘ah, we’ve found why it hasn’t warmed so far but it’s only temprary and AGW will resume worse than ever.’

      They aren’t rational. They are gullible. They are conspiracy theorists. It’ll probably be something like “it’s a conspiracy by little green men”.

      I have never been so excited watching absolutely nothing happening!!
      There’s only been one google news story on “global warming” in the last hour and that is a notice of some talk at a community college.
      To put that in context, a few years ago, there would have been up to 30 an hour, with typically 10 an hour.

        Hey, I watch the ice melt every year, no need to tell me about how exciting nothing can be.

        • Scottish-Sceptic says:

          Some article spoiled the fun not long after the last post. But there was still a three hour gap with absolutely no media worldwide publishing any news at all containing a reference to global warming. And the level is still at an all time low.

    You do realise that whether it has just been discovered or not, the process has been going on for a long time, so the fact that it has now been discovered cannot make any difference to the temperature. It could be useful for reducing the uncertainty in the models.
