The Home of All Things Interesting

Global Warming has

slowed down over

the past 10 years

 

The rate at which global temperatures are rising has slowed in the past decade, scientists said today.

An upsurge in industrial emissions such as sulphur which are being pumped into the atmosphere reflects sunlight and could lead to a cooling effect.

In a report published today, the Met Office said the slow in the rate of warming was down to a combination of natural variation in the weather and pollution.

Scientists say one of the major factors is the rise in heavy industry and pollutant 'aerosols', particularly in Asia.  

Changes in the amount of water vapour in the stratosphere may also be a factor, the report suggests.

The admission will be seized upon by climate sceptics as evidence that man-made global warming has been overstated

Well as they say, Science can change to explain one side or another, however; we have seen a warming trend, and now it appears the trend is changing to cooling trend.  Well that sounds like Science, good thing we are not on those Carbon Credits yet.  The next battle ground is Bio Diversity, which is more Science to explain one side of an argument.
