West's Winds Wane

What's going on out here in the west?
A study conducted by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the University of Washington has concluded that warmer sea and land temperatures along the Pacific coast in North America over the past 100 years are due to weak winds--and not due to human activities or "climate change." The study was published Monday on the eve of the UN Climate Summit by Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

The study, published as "Atmospheric controls on northeast Pacific temperature variability and change, 1900–2012," reports that while "Northeast Pacific coastal warming since 1900 is often ascribed to anthropogenic greenhouse forcing...century-long warming around the northeast Pacific margins, like multidecadal variability, can be primarily attributed to changes in atmospheric circulation," and not to human burning of fossil fuels.
If you don't believe this you're a science-denier.

Gee, some important climate-related factor we didn't appreciate properly.

I wonder how they get those computerized climate models to work so darned well when crucial factors couldn't be included because they weren't known?

Oh, that's right. Those computerized climate models aren't worth spit.

Forgot for a second.
