Depending on how one looks at the data, we have experienced between 18-26 year long pause in global warming.
As of 9/11/14, the website, "wattsupwiththat.com," has documented 52 excuses for the pause each of which prove that global warming is still happening, even though there has been no measurable increase in temperature.
Fifty-two excuses? Your teenager has wrecked the car and usually he manages only 3 or 4 before telling the truth.
Fifty-two excuses is desperate floundering. It means that the models used to predict anthropogenic ("secular") global warming have been falsified and that at least 51 of the excuses have to be at least partly wrong.
