quote: In a follow-up piece, he argues the overall flatline may indicate that natural forces (including in a cooling direction) have a greater impact on global temperatures than human ones, based on his independent analysis over the last half decade.
quote: climate change being a real problem greatly outweighs the small percentage of numbers that have been found to be questionable/faulty.
quote: That's how science works. You obviously is NOT a scientist. That's why you think climate change have something to do with "liberty".

quote: We have only been keeping global temperature records for a little over 100 years so there is no way for any scientists to tell us whether or not what we are experiencing now is abnormal.
