+Myth: No Hot Spot Implies Less Global Warming and Support Lukewarmerism

This post is part of a series addressing issues related to the hot spot. The other parts of this series are listed in the "Myths about the Hot Spot" section of the "Quick Scientific Debunking" page.

1.  The Myth and Its Flaw



Climate models predict that in moist tropical areas, a region of the lower atmosphere will warm more than Earth's surface. This is known as the "hot spot". The myth states that the lack of a hot spot implies that various factors will not substantially increase global warming to the levels seen in climate models. Thus the lack of a hot spot means that mainstream scientists over-estimate future global warming.

1.  The Myth and Its Flaw



Climate models predict that in moist tropical areas, a region of the lower atmosphere will warm more than Earth's surface. This is known as the "hot spot" [1, pages 14 and 14; 3; 15, page 6; 58]. The myth proposes that John Christy, a climate scientist, thinks that there is no evidence of a hot spot.

1.  The Myth and Its Flaws



Climate scientist Ben Santer recently co-authored a paper [1]. Santer and his co-authors showed that climate models over-estimated recent atmospheric warming, thereby revealing a deep flaw in the models. The climate models likely exaggerated CO2-induced atmospheric warming, thus vindicating John Christy's and Ted Cruz's claims about the models.
