The Global Warming 'Pause' Never Actually Happened

There’s been much debate these past few years over the cause of the so-called global warming “hiatus” — a pause in the overall uptick up of Earth’s temperature due to cooling at the surface of the Pacific Ocean since the early 2000s.

New Climate Agreement Is A Step Forward, But Is The Step Big Enough?

A mini drama just played out in Lima, the capital city of Peru. More than 190 countries have agreed to a tentative deal to lower carbon-dioxide emissions by 2020. The salvaged agreement, which was threatened by clashing views from the U.S. and China (of course!), will set the stage for the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Paris next year.
