    Hmm. Sou linked a couple three papers about the slowdown in global warming and volcanic aerosols. All of the papers included climate models as part of their studies–sometimes simple models, sometimes complex models. But everyone knows that climate models do not properly simulate Earth’s responses to volcanic aerosols. Reference Driscoll 2012 was for large eruptions near the equator:

    Why would anyone believe modeled responses to smaller eruptions, when climate models do a crappy job with the big ones?

    “These new data could help to explain why increases in global temperatures have slowed over the past 15 years, a period dubbed the ‘global warming hiatus,’ according to the study’s authors.”

    Entirely reasonable to me. I’m not sure what excuse number this one gets. It appears to be up around 55 so far.
