The monthly satellite lower-troposphere temperature anomaly from Remote Sensing Systems, Inc., is now available.
Taking the least-squares linear-regression trend on this dataset (the bright blue horizontal line through the dark blue data), there has now been no global warming – at all – for 17 years 5 months.
Would readers like to make a projection of how many mainstream media outlets will report this surely not uninteresting fact?
It shows that the Hiatus hernia for true believers in the New Religion continues.
My own prediction is that the number of media reporting 17 years 5 months without any global warming will be approximately equal to the number of general-circulation models that predicted such a long Pause notwithstanding ever-rising CO2 concentration.
Print out the graph as a postcard and send it to the editor of a newspaper near you that has shut down democratic debate by announcing that it will refuse to print any letters at all from “climate deniers”.
