Why do you seem to think that the indicators that have been noted by the majority of climate scientists are nothing more than a "preferred narrative"? Not liking the bad news is understandable, but ignoring it is dangerous.
I judge the quality of science of a field based on how it treats its dissenters. A field where dissenters are treated with respect gives me confidence that the majority conclusions are well founded. A field where dissenters are attacked and have their livelihoods threatened tells me that the majority conclusions are not well founded and the majority fears people who would examine them.

Climate science is a field where dissenters are attacked. This means I have zero confidence in any claims made by the majority. If their claims were really that strong they would not need to respond in the way they do.
