Triggering leftists everywhere, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has reported that there has been no global warming for the eighth year in a row.
Didn’t they say we only had ten years until the world ended in a blast of hot air?
Or… or is the hot air all coming from their mouths?
According to Steve Millroy:
No global warming for 8 years and 5 months, per NASA satellite data.
That's no warming despite ~475 billion tons of CO2 emissions.

As the third successive year of la Niña settles into its stride, the New Pause has lengthened by another month (and very nearly by two months). There has been no trend in the UAH global mean lower-troposphere temperature anomalies since September 2014: 8 years 5 months and counting.
As always, the New Pause is not a prediction: it is a measurement. It represents the farthest back one can go using the world’s most reliable global mean temperature dataset without finding a warming trend.
The sheer frequency and length of these Pauses provide a graphic demonstration, readily understandable to all, that It’s Not Worse Than We Thought – that global warming is slow, small, harmless and, on the evidence to date at any rate, strongly net-beneficial.
Again as always, here is the full UAH monthly-anomalies dataset since it began in December 1978. The uptrend remains steady at 0.134 K decade–1.
The gentle warming of recent decades, during which nearly all of our influence on global temperature has arisen, is a very long way below what was originally predicted – and still is predicted.
NOAA makes it official.
Last 8 years… global cooling… at a rate of 0.11°C/decade…. despite 450+ billion tons of emissions worth 14% of total manmade CO2 in the atmosphere.

On other words, the global warming hysteria is not supported by the facts.
