Global Warming Warnings Omit 17 Years of None

We are seeing a plethora of dire warnings about the need to tackle global warming now (!). The latest is by Kofi Annan in the Washington Post.

But none of these that I have seen even mention the “inconvenient truth” that there has been no statistically significant warming in 17 years. 

That’s just intellectually dishonest. You can’t say on one hand that skeptics are “anti-science,” while ignoring highly relevant data that cut against your advocacy. 

Any global-warming advocacy piece that doesn’t at least try to grapple with the current “stall” is simply not credible.
