Re: Planet Got Cooler in May

Jonah, you’re right to suggest that some folks take any data to confirm catastrophic global warming. But it would be a mistake for conservatives to seize on these numbers, or even a decade-long pattern of cooling, to suggest that global warming isn’t happening. (Not that you’ve done that; but I have heard others make this point.) The time scale for warming is long enough to be compatible with a decade of cooling.
