The observation that natural climate variability exists is not a new one.

Early in September 2009, at a gathering of experts on global climate change, one of the world’s most respected and experienced climate modelers, Mojib Latif, made some observations on climate, media and human nature.

doing exactly that.

You can listen to Latif’s original remarks, here, by clicking on the
recording titled “Advancing climate prediction science”.
