Some 94 skeptics published a letter in the National Post declaring that:
“[D]espite computer projections of temperature rises, there has been no net global warming since 1998. That the current temperature plateau follows a late 20th-century period of warming is consistent with the continuation today of natural multi-decadal or millennial climate cycling.”
Most unfortunate timing.
The same day, NOAA declared that:
“The year 2007 is on pace to become one of the 10 warmest years for the contiguous U.S., since national records began in 1895…The year was marked by exceptional drought in the U.S. Southeast and the West, which helped fuel another extremely active wildfire season. The year also brought outbreaks of cold air, and killer heat waves and floods. Meanwhile, the global surface temperature for 2007 is expected to be fifth warmest since records began in 1880.”
