So 2015 will almost certainly set a new global temperature record. In so doing, it will also discredit the last lingering skeptic arguments that the 2010s "pause" in global warming somehow negates thermodynamics and a century of observations. Which does bring a new sense of relevance and perhaps urgency to Emil Kirkegaard's recent post on... Read More
