Latest Satellite Measurements Confirm Findings of 'The Economist' & 'Pew Poll': Global Warming Trend & Fears Go AWOL
Empirical evidence does not lie - RSS global satellite temperatures confirm hiatus of global warming, while the general public and mainstream press are now recognizing the AWOL truth that skeptics long ago identified...global temperatures are trending towards cooling, not accelerating higher

Per The Economist magazine and other major mainstream media outlets, it's now obvious the conventional, "consensus" global warming meme promulgated by taxpayer-funded researchers is no longer robust - even for the MSM press-release puppets it would appear.
The graph on the right is a depiction of global temperatures as reported by The Economist (pink CO2 curve superimposed by 'C3'). And The Economist and their mainstream press brethern are not alone in challenging the failed AGW orthodoxy: here and here.
While the majority of "journalists" are still awakening from their anti-science, intellectual slumber regarding climate science, the latest empirical global temperature measurements (RSS atmosphere temps and CO2 chart on the left) confirm what The Economist is essentially reporting - global warming has gone AWOL and a slight cooling trend has developed over the last 10 years (a minus 0.42 degrees by 2100 if the trend persists).
This warming hiatus happened despite the loud and hysterical shrieking by the climate scientists on the public dole that current CO2 emissions would cause rapid, unequivocal, irrefutable accelerated warming.
And not only are the falling temperatures invalidating the IPCC's AGW hypothesis, a new Pew poll reports the public support of the global warming hysteria is dropping like a rock - down to only 33%.
1. Global warming has gone AWOL over last 10 years, per the satellite record
2. Cumulating CO2 emissions in the atmosphere have had a minor impact on global temperatures over the last 20 years
3. The mainstream press, as represented by The Economist, and other proponents of convential climate orthodoxy are moving closer to the AGW skeptics' (lukewarmers') position
4. The publics (per Pew) belief in catastrophic AGW predictions is plummeting
