Global warming is taking a break that could last for another 10 years or so.

That's the latest word from a team of climate researchers in Germany. Global average temperatures should remain above normal, the team suggests. But additional warming, already on hold over the first seven years of this decade, is likely to remain that way for another decade.

Actually what it means is that the Gulf Stream will weaken for a few years, resulting in a cooling effect in North America and Western Europe. Global warming continues at its alarming pace.

The damage is done, people around the world are starving and we have created a multi billion dollar bureaucracy that cannot be eliminated. They are afraid though. They are changing the name of the scare campaign from global warming to climate change.

Hello, it's been "climate change" for about twenty years. Just wake up from your nap Rip Van Winkle?

It's always been climate change, but the change we used to be worried about was an ice age.

And at some point if we continue as a species we will have to worry about an ice age.

In May I worry about how hot it will be in the summer. In October I worry about how cold it will be in the winter. When I get it right the temperature is comfortable all the time.
