The temperature surge of the past two years has now collapsed and it is all part of a super El Nino. Claims of a fresh beginning to global warming turn out tho be wishful thinking.
What has been ignored since 1998 is that the global temperature has flat lined. That is 18 years during which surely as much CO2 entered the atmosphere as had for the previous century. This actually disproves the linkage hypothesis.
Once you get past that outright scientific lie you are talking about the weather and no more.
