Double back flip with pike

Climate "scientists" are able to perform mental and logical gymnastics to keep their scam alive and some gold medal performances are being seen following the release of the shonky hiatus-killing paper by NASA/NOAA.
A medal should definitely go to  Mark Maslin, a climatology professor at University College London, who said “a whole cottage industry has been built by climate sceptics on the false premise that there is currently a hiatus in global warming”. “This is despite climate data showing continued warming of the Earth surface,” he said.
Mark omits to tell us that the hiatus in global warming is observed by that well-known subversive sceptical body called the IPCC  in the AR5 reports which says:
"In summary, the observed recent warming hiatus, defined as the reduction in GMST trend during 1998–2012 as compared to the trend during 1951–2012, is attributable in roughly equal measure to a cooling contribution from internal variability and a reduced trend in external forcing (expert judgment, medium confidence). The forcing trend reduction is primarily due to a negative forcing trend from both volcanic eruptions and the downward phase of the solar cycle. However, there is low confidence in quantifying the role of forcing trend in causing the hiatus, because of uncertainty in the magnitude of the volcanic forcing trend and low confidence in the aerosol forcing trend."

No mention of a false premise there , just good old "Settled Science".
