One of those inconvenient truths! As global coal use has increased the global temperature has declined.
The fact that climate science has fallen into disrepute has not been lost on many delegations attending the UN climate change conference in Warsaw. Green groups complained they had transformed the conference into a coal industry trade show. Then there were the Australians who wore t-shirts and giggled and generally copped a frat boy demeanor. Eventually the so called poor countries who hoped to shake down the the developed counties for reparations left the conference in protest. Notice the conference was barely reported in the media.
