The empirical evidence continues to build within the climate science community that the world is experiencing some type of global cooling phase as a result of natural climate change forces.
Other than a handful of anti-science, celebrity quacks denying the climate reality, while still spouting global warming scares and anti-CO2 hype, the world's climate agencies are now releasing evidence that a deceleration of temperatures and cooling are real.
As has been widely documented, the 'standstill' in global temperatures has taken place over the last 15+ years. In addition, the continental U.S. has actually been cooling over that same time period. [Update: Of course, there is also the central portion of England that now has a 25-year cooling trend, as previously discussed.]
And now NOAA has just released their U.S. dataset update, which reveals that U.S. winters (November, December, January), over the last 20 years, have cooled at a -2.5°F per century rate. The adjacent NOAA/NCDC web site chart depicts that cooling trend.
As this NOAA dataset suggests, the reason for worse winter weather in the U.S. is likely a cooling climate change that has followed the previous modern warming - a natural climate response.
Again, 'those-stubborn-facts' that are so inconvenient for politicians.
Note: On NOAA/NCDC charting page, choose 'January', '3-Months', '1995' and '2014' to produce graph with U.S. winters over 20 years (starting with the Nov 1994, Dec 1994 and Jan 1995 winter).
