Reconciling controversies about the 'global warming hiatus'
Description: Between about 1998 and 2012, a time that coincided with political negotiations for preventing climate change, the surface of Earth seemed hardly to warm. This phenomenon, often termed the 'global warming hiatus', caused doubt in the public mind about how well anthropogenic climate change and natural variability are understood. Here scientists show that apparently contradictory conclusions stem from different definitions of 'hiatus' and from different datasets. [Source: Nature]
