Decade of 2000s Warmest on Record

In a bit of irony, Winston Churchill praised his famed enemy German Field Marshal Rommel as “a skillful opponent” and a “great general.” Should similar words of “praise” go to those who are continuing to foster the false idea that climate science is in doubt?

The decade of the 2000s is the warmest on record, with 2009 the fifth-warmest year on record.

Climate extremes, including droughts, floods, and heat waves, were recorded in many parts of the world this year.

Arctic sea ice was ranked the third lowest on record, after the lowest records set the previous two years.

In light of this news perhaps we should give similar “praise” to those saying that climate science and impacts aren’t supported by the overwhelming preponderance of scientific evidence?
