There is plenty of anecdotal and empirical evidence that global warming is on its last legs and fading fast. Often the global warming is presented as a linear temperature growth that seems to be a runaway-train-on-the-tracks headed off the charts. But the linear trend representation is very misleading.
When the same data is viewed in a non-linear representation, the simple straight line to heaven look is revealed for what it really is - a false representation.
Below are both global temperature and CO2 data for the last two decades, plus the first six months of 2010. Using a non-linear trend analysis, the actual data reveals the CO2 trend and global temperature trend diverging significantly.
Clearly, the flattening of warming is evident in the smooth blue trend curve for temperatures. This is happening while the smooth blue trend curve for CO2 continues its upward climb. The CO2-induced, "soon to be," global warming tipping point is in reality, a fantasy. (click on image to enlarge)
