The media has recently shown their determination to sell newspapers rather than news. They have allowed the anti-science community near equal time to the scientific community in regards to the so called global temperature pause. In this myth they say that the last 17 years have seen a pause in temperature rise. They have suggested that this proves that climate change is not happening in response to human CO2 emissions. The escalator graph in this article should clear things up. It shows the stepwise increase in temperature over the years. The temperature rise is somewhat episodic so it goes flat or even drops a little and then goes up higher than the previous high before backtracking, rinse and repeat.
