By “The Pause” I mean that period, starting around 1997, in which it was possible to draw a flat trendline, which some people interpreted as meaning Global Warming had stopped. Depending on the data set selected, this could be done for a period of about 18 years. “Skeptics” sometimes claim that the pause was somehow got rid of, but they are wrong. It is still there in the data, only now you need to carefully select the endpoint as well. http://woodfortrees.org/plot/uah6/plot/u… So what is your view on this; Did global warming stop? Has it now resumed? Or was there insufficient evidence to make the claim in the first place? Was there no pause to explain? On what evidence do you base your view?
