The IPCC's reports are based on results from a collection of climate computer models; they have nothing else. These are simply computer programs that, in essence, contain a computerised version of the assumptions and beliefs of the climate modeller as to how the climate of the planet works. Whether these assumptions are well-founded is another question, but the key point is that whatever these assumptions may be, when the climate model is run, it generates its 'predictions' by calculation of hypothetical futures for the behaviour of the atmosphere. These 'futures' contain, as an essential element, predictions of the changes of atmospheric temperatures at various heights above the planet and the various latitudes all the way from south pole to north pole.
The indisputable fact about these atmospheric temperature predictions is that if the pattern doesn't happen, the model is wrong. Just as Fred won't warm up if he isn't surrounded by warm air, likewise the effects on the Earth of global warming cannot happen if the cause of the warming —the warm air—isn't there.

Still have not had to get the snow shovels out of the garage, maybe winter will arrive in January.
there is your local weather report Info Packet.

if it is all just a "measurement" problem. ...
Why is our government building a navy base on the Arctic ocean?
seems to me, the people who make decisions for us .. already have all the evidence they need.

Naw, I have other things to do more important, attacking you is not necessary as you are your own worst enemy.
I would gladly discuss the climate problems or the greatness of Bob Dylan if given a chance.
