You're kidding, right? How often do we have to chant the mantra that climate is not the same as weather. The climate models may suggest that we will see in increase in precipitation, but that doesn't mean that in one specific location that there will be more rain. Also, there are other localised factors with droughts.
None of what was in that article is enough to make the claims that all the models have failed. I also don't understand the point of the article. If 97% of the scientists agree that man has a hand in global warming, it doesn't mean that they agree on all the details. Nor does it mean that any disagreement within the community is proof that the whole thing is a big fat lie.
BS. 'Big Oil' is a red-herring to divert attention away from 'Big Government', whose grants and funding tend to force researchers to become, in effect, lobbyists for political activism in order to 'pay the rent'.
And that is even more BS. There is no proof that there is any "Big Government" that is attempting to control the scientific community, especially when 50% of those people in power are actively against the idea of climate change. Whenever you hear of political interference with the scientific process, how often is it some left-wing conspiracy to force the hand of scientists compared with conservatives attempting to shut down institutions that do research into climate change? Where is the evidence of this giant conspiracy, other than far-right pundits speculating as if it was fact?
