What will it take for the warmists to say they were wrong?

2000:

According to Dr David Viner, a senior research scientist at the climatic research unit (CRU) of the University of East Anglia,within a few years winter snowfall will become “a very rare and exciting event”.

Children just aren’t going to know what snow is,” he said…

David Parker, at the Hadley Centre for Climate Prediction and Research in Berkshire, says ultimately, British children could have only virtual experience of snow

    I believe they were not the only ones to make that claim, am I right? I believe the claim was made in Germany, also, and one other place, though not sure where…

    btw, does anyone have a list of all those who made the claim, in one form or another, that ‘the science is settled’?

    I saw what had to be a partial list on WUWT, but no clue how to find my way back to it.

    I just came across this site looking for information on another weather matter but it is always good to see more people who use their brains for more than storage units!

    Right now, we’re about to get some snow for the first time since last month and around here snow usually falls a lot more often from December to March. Sadly, some people believe that the scarce snow and warmer than usual temperatures are a result of global warming despite the fact we had two bitterly cold and higher than average snowfall filled winters prior to this. Despite proof that CO2 has gone up while temperatures did not, and alarmist claims have been debunked time and time again, people will still fall for this ridiculous crap. Now, that WSJ article with the sixteen scientists was attacked because they called the authors of it “the equivalent of dentists discussing cardiac surgery”. The WSJ Sixteen included the founder of the National and International Journals of Forecasting, climatologists, Nobel Prize winners for ACTUAL science, and the President of the World Federation of Science in Geneva while the primary opponents of the article were simply college professors with no real experience outside climate models.

    You guys will never get them to admit they were wrong. They’ll wait 250 years and say “there is a pause in the warming” but they won’t say it’ll end, just come back with a fury and vengeance never before seen. And they’ll be wrong.
