Thankfully, the anti-science propaganda campaign surrounding man-made climate change seems to have lost some of its effect.

Are you seeing storm clouds on the horizon? Two recent studies suggest that the latest anti-science campaign is following its forerunners--the propaganda campaigns attempting to refute science that tobacco causes cancer, that CFC's caused the hole in the ozone layer, and so on—into oblivion. Global warming denial seems to have climbed to a peak in 2010, and global warming acceptance is now climbing. This bodes well for rational public policy.

Global warming has not stopped, as I pointed out. However, the rate of warming at the earth’s surface has slowed down, but it continues to rise.

That’s the surface. New 2015 studies suggest that over 90% of the heat from global warming is going in the ocean

(htt p://ww w.scpr.or g/news/2015/02/02/49566/world-s-oceans-steadily-heating-up-new-study-finds/),

and that “the forces behind the supposed hiatus are natural— and temporary — ocean processes that may already changing course.”

(*******e360.yale.edu/feature/how_long_can_oceans_continue_to_absorb_earths_excess_heat/2860/).

As to those who ask what the “correct” temperature is: “Most scientists concur that two degrees C of warming above the temperature during preindustrial time would harm all sectors of civilization—food, water, health, land, national security, energy and economic prosperity.”

You used to claim the rate of increase was proof that it wasn't a natural variation. What say you now when all the evidence points to a pause or plateau in warming?

Do you deny that we were once covered in thick ice sheets right here?

Just how will you know that you have fixed the problem you believe exists?

It's cute how ppl who mention the last 18 years never mention the climate reverting back to the way it was prior...

And when was that Kendall, the ICE AGE? Should we long for the days of 2 mile thick ICE over our heads?

A small city has a murder rate of one death per year. The next year it's two murders and the next year it is three murders. This increase keeps going for decades and then stops increasing and holds at 25 murders a year. 18 years later guy comes along and says there is no murder problem since there has been no further increase. Is he wise or stupid?

Have you forgotten your dishonest claim that 2104 was the hottest on record? First of all even if it was, there is no proven link to co2, Secondly when you look at the data and margin of error, it's greater than the supposed warming, sorry you fail to meet the bar of fact

Why no warming Harry has Co2 output ceased?

And no warming in 18 years, by the way what is the error margin in your data Harry

“This analysis shows that 13 of the warmest years have occurred in the past 15 years. Alternately, one could say that 12 of the warmest years came in the last 13.”

h ttp://ww w.politifact.c om/truth-o-meter/statements/2013/feb/15/barack-obama/barack-obama-says-12-hottest-years-record-have-com/

The decade from 2000-2010 was the warmest on record.

ht tp://ww w.noaanews.noaa.gov/stories2010/20100728_stateoftheclimate.html

Climate researchers look to longer term trends to determine warming, as there is too much natural variability within any given year. And that long-term trend is unequivocal (see NASA chart below): The world has now gone 30 consecutive years — 360 straight months — where every month has been above the 20th century average, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.”

A complete, non-cherry-picked look at the data shows clearly warming hasn’t stopped.
