Here’s an interesting little preface to this story, courtesy of the University of Wisconsin/Milwaukee:

The climate is known to be variable and, in recent years, more scientific thought and research has been focused on the global temperature and how humanity might be influencing it.

However, a new study by the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee could turn the climate change world upside down.Scientists at the university used a math application known as synchronized chaos and applied it to climate data taken over the past 100 years.
And what did synchronized chaos - an oxymoron if ever I heard one - tell them about Al Gore and his prostelytes?
“The research team has found the warming trend of the past 30 years has stopped and in fact global temperatures have leveled off since 2001.”

The most recent climate shift probably occurred at about the year 2000. …

[Dr. Anastasios] Tsonis said he thinks the current trend of steady or even cooling earth temps may last a couple of decades or until the next climate shift occurs.
Just another brick in the wall, buttered with mud and slapped into place at a particularly interesting time, given this:
"Enactment of a cap-and-trade regime is likely to influence nearly every feature of the U.S. economy,” wrote the Democratic senators, mostly moderates. They were joined by 25 Republicans. “Legislation so far-reaching should be fully vetted and given appropriate time for debate.”
This was such a great comment to the article:

I’ve sometimes wondered why those folks trying to model something so complex as the world’s climate didn’t turn their attentions to something simpler but more lucrative, like predicting the stock market. After all, the same fundamental forecasting rules apply: “A trend will continue until it changes.”
