Do these charts convince you that global warming is not on “hiatus”?
They didn’t convince the Washington Times, which totally twisted the findings of a NASA scientist:
[Washington Times] said that a prominent NASA scientist had admitted global warming is on “hiatus.” As the writer explained, “The nation’s space agency [has] noticed an inconvenient cooling on the planet lately.”
It was pretty much the opposite of what Loeb was trying to say. But it’s not an isolated incident. Conservatives love to cite the relative stability of global surface temperatures for the last 15 years as proof that climate change is a hoax…
Needless to say, the conservatives have it all wrong. And the science really isn’t that hard to understand.
