Global warming ‘pause’ reflects natural fluctuation

Statistical analysis shows pattern consistent with pre-industrial temperature swings, study concludes
Mon, 2014-07-21 14:06

Statistical analysis of average global temperatures between 1998 and 2013 shows that the slowdown in global warming during this period is consistent with natural variations in temperature, according to research by McGill University physics professor Shaun Lovejoy.

Macroweather is what you expect

Between short-term weather and long-term climate, there is an intermediate 'macroweather' regime.

While short-term weather is notoriously volatile, climate is thought to represent a kind of average weather pattern over a long period of time. This dichotomy provides the analytical framework for scientific thinking about atmospheric variability, including climate change.
