These researchers are to be applauded. Their retraction was forthright and clear.

[h=2]Ecologists pull paper on how climate change affects moths after model mixup[/h] with 2 comments
Ecologists have retracted a paper published only months ago in Science Advances, after realizing that they had misinterpreted a climate model.
The October paper examined the effects of climate change on populations of 155 species of British moths and butterflies. According to a press release from the authors’ institution, the University of York:
Using data collected by thousands of volunteers through ‘citizen science’ schemes, responses to recent climate change were seen to vary greatly from species to species.
But the authors quickly realized that the variation they had measured was not due to climate change alone, according to the retraction notice they issued for the paper last week:

And this disproves climate change how? Oh, right - it DOESN'T. Because one group of scientists in one study figured out that their model needed to be reworked, this is somehow proof to you that such is the case for the entire issue of climate change.

No one has made the claim against which you are arguing.
