Then why didn't a single model predict the pause after 1998? Why are there are nearly a dozen different explanations for the pause (including that there was no pause).
Here is a question for you that I have not seen the answer to anywhere. I am genuinely interested.
How much has the climate warmed since 1900?
How much has the climate warmed since 1900 due to increased CO2?
How much has the climate warmed since 1900 due to other natural factors?
What are those other natural factors that caused warming and how much did each factor contribute?
Paratus actually has a family and a job so as much fun as this is I'm not going to spend a lot of time on it.Your pointing to a TSI that was still, on that chart, higher than the 1930s.
If I had to guess pollution might be a factor that was present more in the second half of the century.
I feel like Paratus might have a field day sorting this out.
Good news is I don't have to.

(A question for either of you. Why are they measuring the forcings in units of watts per meter squared?)
