I remember 4 years ago you couldn’t swing a dead cat without hitting a story about global warming.
Now? Global warming is mentioned in passing. It might be that people have all come to a consensus that global warming is happening, so the news about it isn’t as pressing.
Or, maybe the entire idea that our activities are warming the Earth are hitting a “dry spell”, pardon the pun.
Checking a blog which analyzes the trends, you see the most recent trend, the 60-month trend is a decline. A steady decline. I’m stealing his two images here to avoid hotlinking.
I’ll keep them up for a while, but they’re big ol’ files, so I’ll be purging them once I get short on media space.
But you can see from here the 5 year trends are downwards, and the slopes are certainly trending downwards (second image). Couple this with a decrease in the solar wind, and we’ve got a major cooling trend hitting the planet at the moment.
But don’t listen to me. I’m just reporting data. Leo DeCaprio says the world is warming out of control, and he’s better looking than I am.
