decade-long plus global cooling trend has not yet abated, which has been a
major surprise for all global warming alarmists. This trend has
persisted since the super 1997-98 El
continental U.S. having the most extensive thermometer network in the
world, this suggests that possibly other areas of the world would be
reporting a cooling trend if they also had the extent and quality of actual temperature measuring
that exists in the U.S.
The AGW hypothesis calls for global warming, which is obviously not happening in the U.S. - the case for AGW is significantly weakened by this type of empirical evidence. Just as a reminder, the climate models predicted "global" warming, not partial-global warming, as seems to be the present situation. Note: A temperature trend, as shown in the chart, is not a prediction.
