The world stopped getting warmer almost 16 years ago, according to new data released last week.

The figures, which have triggered debate among climate scientists, reveal that from the beginning of 1997 until August 2012, there was no discernible rise in aggregate global temperatures.

This means that the ‘plateau’ or ‘pause’ in global warming has now lasted for about the same time as the previous period when temperatures rose, 1980 to 1996. Before that, temperatures had been stable or declining for about 40 years."

  • I've read that global warming had stopped back in the 1940's

    Since the ice age Earths temperatures had been increasing up until that time, and that they would be decreasing.
    That It was just a natural cycle of the Earth.

    I'm not taking a stand on global warming one way or the other, just saying
    I did read this before global warming became a buzz word.

    No cite, this was a long time ago (80's ?)
