The Warming Trend Has Slowed

----- a reverse?

According to The Vancouver Sun, scientists are not collecting the data they expected.

"In fact, 'there has been a very slight cooling,' according to a U.S. National Public Radio (NPR) interview with Josh Willis at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, a scientist who keeps close watch on the Argo findings." -The Vancouver Sun.

Apparently, some scientists are now turning their backs on the data collectors, which include some very sophisticated machinery, specifically, the Argos. However, my concern lies not in their refusal to accept the data, but rather, the problem lies in their inability to learn from the data. Refusing to retool their hypothesis or their climate change models as new data comes in, the scientists deem it necessary to put a spin on the data.

"Just look how tenaciously some scientists are prepared to cling to the climate change dogma. "It may be that we are in a period of less rapid warming," Willis told NPR." - The Vancouver Sun
