Real Science: Some of the leading explanations for the global warming pause from the team.
We can’t account for the missing heat, and it is a travesty that we can’t.
The heat all sank to the bottom of the ocean.
The oceans are accumulating 400,000 atom bombs worth of heat per day.
The pause is thanks to the Montreal Protocol in 1987, which reduced CFC’s – but warming will return soon.
[Climate Depot add: In the proceedings of the National Academy of Science, there was a study blaming Chinese coal use for the lack of global warming. Global warming proponents claimed that coal use is saving us from dangerous global warming.
Now Claim: There is no pause, the rate of warming has doubled
Now, after adjusting past temperatures, warmists claim there never was a 'pause'. See: Presto! There was no global temperature standstill! Warmists rewrite temperature data to claim: ‘Global Warming Since 1997 Underestimated by Half’ (also see: Climatologist Dr. Judith Curry on the Cowtan & Way ‘pausebuster’: ‘Is there anything useful [in it]?’)
