Since an exceptionally warm 1998, there has been "a short-term slowdown in the warming of Earth's surface," Britain's Royal Society and the U.S. National Academy of Sciences said in a report.
But, they said, that "does not invalidate our understanding of long-term changes in global temperature arising from human-induced changes in greenhouse gases."
Instead of trying to use scare tactics to keep developing countries from achieving first world status why don't these scientists study why there was a short-term slowdown. Maybe that slowdown can be repeated or it could be sustainable. Instead we just have assurances that warming will continue some time in the future maybe. That is a flimsy basis to give billions of dollars to despots seeking an end to climate change.
