Has global warming stopped?
Posted by Ari Jokimäki on January 28, 2013
For a long time there has been claims about global warming having stopped, and that there hasn’t been warming in N years or since year X. Current fashion is to claim that there hasn’t been any warming in 16 years. All of this is of course irrelevant to the anthropogenic global warming, which according to Easterling & Wehner (2009) “can and likely will produce periods of a decade or two where the globally averaged surface air temperature shows no trend or even slight cooling in the presence of longer‐term warming”.
Standard time-period of significance to climate is 30 years. Below global surface temperature anomalies are presented as running 30-year mean.
Do you see any signs of global warming stopping?
