Climate change: Warmest decade on record excites activists, actuaries


Looks like that Climategate thing is about to kick into high gear again. Refuting the claims of global-warning critics, the World Meteorological Organization today released findings showing that the past decade was the hottest recorded in the 150 years that scientists have collected global temperature records (year-to-year temperature fluctuations notwithstanding). Both sides of the climate-change debate have already seized upon the report as conclusive evidence that carbon emissions are either causing global warming or proof of scientific chicanery gobbled up by the mainstream media.
