This iReport is part of an assignment:
Global Warming is Dead!
That says it all. Over the last 16 years (1997-2012) the aggregate global temperature has not increased. That is significant because 16 years is equal to the period of warming that preceded it (1980-1996).
While many scientists debate the significance of the findings, it does raise questions regarding the nature of climate change. It also calls into question the need for recent environmental legislation in many industrialized countries that is costing tax payers billions of dollars annually.
As the article conclude..."So let’s be clear. Yes: global warming is real, and some of it at least has been caused by the CO2 emitted by fossil fuels. But the evidence is beginning to suggest that it may be happening much slower than the catastrophists have claimed – a conclusion with enormous policy implications."
