Solving the Mysteries of Hiatus in Global Warming | - The Keeling Curve
Global mean temperatures have been flat for 15 years despite the increase in heat-trapping greenhouse gases, but a new Scripps study shows cooling in the equatorial Pacific Ocean explains the discrepancy...If researchers can estimate that climate cycle, they could also better estimate the end date of regional trends that are linked to ocean cooling, such as the drought in the southern United States that have caused an estimated tens of billions of dollars in agricultural damage since 2000.
