    Scientists say the recent downturn in
    the rate of global warming will lead to lower temperature rises in the
    short-term.

    Since 1998, there has been an unexplained "standstill" in the heating of the
    Earth's atmosphere.

    Writing in Nature
    Geoscience, the researchers say this will reduce predicted warming in the
    coming decades.

    But long-term, the expected temperature rises will not alter significantly. The most extreme projections are looking less likely than
    before”
    End Quote Dr Alexander Otto University of Oxford

    The slowdown in the expected rate of global warming has
    been
    studied for several years now. Earlier this year, the UK Met Office lowered
    their five-year temperature forecast.

    So while not saying GW is bullshit, they are backing off the "Doom & Gloom" a bit.

    Maybe they see the dire predictions are overblown and are laying the
    foundation to say "Well...nevermind!"

    Damnit SR, I just posted this in TNO's thread...
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.
