About that "pause" in Global Warming"

"A new independent study shows no pause in global warming, confirming a set of temperature readings adjusted by U.S. government scientists that some who reject mainstream climate science have questioned.
The adjustments, made by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration in 2015 to take into account changes in how ocean temperatures have been measured over the decades, riled a House committee and others who claimed the changes were made to show rising temperatures. The House Science Committee subpoenaed the agency's scientists and then complained that NOAA wasn't answering its requests quickly enough." PM

Leaving out that word confirming in your highlight makes it into a fake representation of the meaning of the passage.

It's chilly outside today.

Therefore there is no global warming.

It's not getting above freezing here today. Put that in your Global Warming pipe and smoke it.

That was due to arson, not global warming.

He said last summer, not last month, unless you are admitting that November, due to climate change, is now part of summer....

And re the summer, you figure an arsonist would assure optimum fire conditions by keeping regional rainfall down and temp up?
