Cyclical Climate Patterns Caused Climate Warming: Not Greenhouse Gases: Peer-Reviewed Article In Climate Dynamics Journal

From Daily Mail Online, "Global warming 'pause' may last for 20 more years and Arctic sea ice has already started to recover" by David Rose:
The 17-year pause in global warming is likely to last into the 2030s and the Arctic sea ice has already started to recover, according to new research.

A paper in the peer-reviewed journal Climate Dynamics – by Professor Judith Curry of the Georgia Institute of Technology and Dr Marcia Wyatt – amounts to a stunning challenge to climate science orthodoxy.

Not only does it explain the unexpected pause, it suggests that the scientific majority – whose views are represented by the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) – have underestimated the role of natural cycles and exaggerated that of greenhouse gases.
It also means that a large proportion of the warming that did occur in the years before the pause was due not to greenhouse gas emissions, but to the same cyclical wave. [Emphasis added.]
