Well another month of temperature data for the continental United States has been recorded and the trend since 1998 STILL shows a declining trend. At present, temperatures since 1998 are declining at a rate of 8.0 deg F per century. According to scientists from the IPCC the general global trend for the past 15 years has been no significant warming or even a slight cooling. Of course, during all this time the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere has been going up and up. The graph below was compiled from data published by the National Climatic Data Center, U. S. Department of Commerce.
Does anyone think this trend will be reported in the mainstream media? If the data showed a warming trend of +8.0 deg F per century do you think it would be reported by the mainstream media?
