Undue focus on the air temperature plateau is cretinous for several more reasons. Thirdly, many scientists anticipated the so-called “pause”: Order by newest oldest recommendations.

Yet before the ink is even dry critics are trying to obscure this stark message behind a mirage: Thomas Stocker, one to the two scientists who oversaw the IPCC report, gave this criticism short shrift: Second, if air temperatures have not risen quickly in the last 15 years, other clear indicators of climate change have worsened more quickly than expected, including the rapid loss of Arctic ice and sea level rise.

While the long term warming trend is clear, scientists have long known that air temperatures do not rise smoothly year-on-year in the complex and chaotic climate system and that decade-long ups and downs are part of natural variability.
