Principia Scientific Intl - The 21st Century New Paradigm Shift in Climate Change Science
There can be no doubt that the world has not seen any further upward movement in the roughly sinusoidal natural 60 year climate cycle which peaked around 1998. Sure there was a second slightly lower peak in 2010, but since then we have had two more years which are back on the cooling trend, and sea surface temperatures have not in any year exceeded the 1998 maximum.

In fact, because of the 60 year cycle (which is clearly verified in the Appendix of my paper "Radiated Energy and the Second Law of Thermodynamics") we can expect slight cooling to continue until at least 2028. Yes there will be 30 years of warming after that, but around that time the long term (~1,000 year) cyclic trend will start a 500 year natural cooling period. This long term trend rises and falls for about 500 years at a time at a rate of about 0.5 C degrees per century, and it has nothing to do with carbon dioxide levels.

There is no doubt that the world has warmed, and that this will continue.

With this cold snap it's reassuring that wind farms are currently supplying a massive 1.9% of our energy needs.

On extremes, draft US NCA is at odds w/ IPCC SREX, selective/incomplete citations, imprecise. Good thing it is a draft, but still poor form.
