Question of the Day

The UN has published it's latest report on global warming, stating that the IPCC is now 95% sure that man is responsible for warming the planet, up from 90% in 2007, the last time they published their report.

So, from today's Wall Street Journal, I pose the question of the day:

"Between 1998 and 2012 the global economy more than doubled in size—to some $71 trillion in GDP from $30 trillion. That's the good news. Over the same period the world pumped more than 100 billion tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. That is supposedly the bad news. Yet global surface temperatures have remained essentially flat. That's the mystery: If emitting CO2 into the atmosphere causes global warming, why hasn't the globe been warming?"

The report offers no obvious explanations.  Here is a link to the article:

Stay warm,
