Is the climate cooling?
May 9, 2007
A recent study conducted by ClimatePolice.com indicates the climate over the last 9 years is beginning to cool. 1998 typically serves as the benchmark for the warmest year on record for global temperatures. Since 1998, temperatures have decreased by -.34 degrees F. Click here for a full image of the graph or click the thumbnail below.
This conclusion agrees with a previous study suggesting that no new warming has occurred (Lindzen, 2006) since 1998. It also agrees with a report (Gray, 2006) predicting that global temperatures will begin decreasing.
At the minimum, as the graph indicates, global temperatures have stabilized and appear to have a negative trend. This is also reflected in the 2007 year-to-date average temperatures where most of the country is normal with some slight warming in the Northwest.
