Is it warming or cooling?

Temperature trends are not obeying IPCC models. This winter was (and is) a cold one. One winter does not a trend make, but since the 1998 El Nino (and increased water vapor emissions, a major Greenhouse gas), the lower atmosphere does not appear to be warming. You may now return to your regularly scheduled panic about the climate.

...and more than slightly OT, it snowed today in Seattle and its suburbs. A bit unusual.

It snowed like the dickens in Michigan yesterday. A large snowfall for winter and large snowfall for March.

The Roman Warm Period began around 200 BC or so. The Medieval War Period started around 800 AD or so. The Shitferbrains Warm Period began around 1900 AD.

Stuff happens and charlatans make a killing. Morons get taken to the cleaners never realizing that a bit warmth is better than a bit of cold.
