Global warming pause?

Umm, not really.  You can see how the Earth is heating up rapidly.   This great image was made by Ed Hawkins, a climate scientist at the University of Reading in the United Kingdom. 

He points out some features:

1877-78: strong El Nino event warms global temperatures

1880s-1910: small cooling, partially due to volcanic eruptions

1910-1940s: warming, partially due to recovery from volcanic eruptions, small increase in solar ouput and natural variability

1950s-1970s: fairly flat temperatures as cooling sulphate aerosols mask the greenhouse gas warming

1980-now: strong warming, with temperatures pushed higher in 1998 and 2016 due to strong El Nino events

He used temperature data from January 1850 – March 2016.  The numbers give the temperature above the average of 1850-1900.    The temperatures are from a British data set called HadCRUT4.4.  You can get that data here:

and check out Hawkin's website and blog:

Thanks to +rasha kamel for pointing this out.

Beyond disturbing.
 
There is a growing and disturbing trend of anti-intellectual elitism in American culture. It's the dismissal of science, the arts, and humanities and their replacement by entertainment, self-righteousness, ignorance, and deliberate gullibility....

Stumbling across Sarasota Smile via a Groupon, I was pleasantly surprised by the welcoming atmosphere. The friendly staff went the extra mile to ensure my questions were answered and presented a variety of options for me to make an informed decision. Low pressure environment and skilled technicians enabled me to feel comfortable with them as my dentist.
