A new study adds to mounting evidence that cooling in the tropical Pacific Ocean is the cause of the global warming hiatus, a slow-down in the rise of average temperatures that began around 1998.

It is not cooling of the tropical oceans. It is cooling of the SURFACE WATERS of the oceans. The overall OCEANS have warmed. GOD! I wish that ONE press reporter had enough of a brain and a background to report it ACCURATELY. Deep warming has taken most of the energy while wind driven cool uprisings have dropped the water temperature at the AIR surface.

The logical explanation for a lack of warming for 16 years
is that Mother Nature did not cooperate with foolish and
slef-enriching people who created phony computer climate
models by choosing data to suit their intent to confuse and
deceive the public and its politicians.

The data they ignored and distorted, garbage in, caused
the computers to produce garbage out.
Those scientists and the profiteers who rewarded them with
dollars and headlines for fooling politicians had no clue
about which way global temeratures would go. Still don't.

Competent. conscientious scientists need to learn much
more about our planet, how it will react to constant change
in sunlight strenth plus how plants and animals interact
before they can hope to outguess Ma Nature.

The world population will prosper dramatically if the
global climate stays the same or warms more.
If it turns cold again then billions of humans will
become victims of conflict and starvation if a majority
of voters have not wised up so that they elect honest
persons to manage public affairs for a change.
