There's no "hiatus". It's a FAILED PREDICTION. MT @hockeyschtick1 NYT: What accounts for the global warming hiatus? http://www.nytimes.com/2014/08/12/science/in-the-ocean-clues-to-change.html …

The global warming mongers have pulled another fast one, and this time many of those who know that it’s a fraud are falling for it. It’s all the talk about the 17 year “hiatus” during which the globe has not warmed.
But here’s the point: it’s not a “hiatus.” Calling it a hiatus means that it’s an interruption of an ongoing event. It’s NOT a pause .... a gap, .... an interval .... before global warming starts up again. To accept the term hiatus is a concession to a lie.
The global warming fraudsters predicted that the earth would heat up. It did not. It’s a failed prediction.
It’s like the Dead Parrot sketch where the shopkeeper pretends that the parrot is not dead.
With apologies to Monty Python:
Mr. Praline: Never mind that, my lad. I wish to complain about this global warming prediction what I purchased not half an hour ago from this very boutique.
Owner: Oh yes, the, uh, the Climate Change Special...What's, uh...What's wrong with it?
Mr. Praline: I'll tell you what's wrong with it, my lad. 'E's stopped, that's what's wrong with it!
Owner: No, no, 'e's uh,...it’s his hiatus.
Mr. Praline: Look, matey, I know a when a prediction is dead wrong when I see one, and I'm looking at one right now.
Owner: No no it’s not wrong, it’s, it’s a hiatus! Remarkable prediction, Climate Change, idn'it, ay? Predicts everything, higher temperatures, lower temperatures, droughts, floods, hurricanes, even good weather!
Mr. Praline: The Climate don't enter into it. It's stone wrong.
Owner: Nononono, no, no! 'E's hiatin’!
Mr. Praline: All right then, if he's hiatin', I'll see if he will change! (shouting at the “warmers”) 'Ello, Mister Warmer! I've got some great new federal grants for you if you show...
(warmers “adjust” data)
Owner: There, the temps are up!
Mr. Praline: No, it’s not, that was you fudging the numbers!
Owner: I never!!
Mr. Praline: Yes, you did!
Owner: I never, never did anything...
Mr. Praline: (yelling and hitting the thermometer vigorously) ‘ELLO NASA, ‘ELLO MICHAEL MANN!!!!! The Great Lakes froze over! Leaves are turning in August! There’s still a pile of snow in Winnipeg! Testing! This is your nine o'clock alarm call!
(Takes thermometer and slams it on the counter. Throws an article about New Yorkers depressed by cool summer at clerk.)
Mr. Praline: Now that's what I call a failed prediction.
Owner: No, no.....No, 'e's hiating!
Mr. Praline: HIATING?!?
Owner: Yeah! He’s just hiating, just as he was getting’ read to heat up! Global Warming hiates easily, major.
Mr. Praline: Um...now look...now look, mate, I've definitely 'ad enough of this. You told me that the earth was warming due to greenhouse gases; that New York City would be under water when I listened to your not more than a year ago, you assured me that its total lack temperature increase was due to it hidin’ in the ocean deeps following my driving around in an SUV.
Owner: Well, he's...he's, ah...probably pining for the fjords. The fiords will soon be under water mate.
Mr. Praline: Look, I took the liberty of examining the global warming data when I got it home, and I discovered the only reason that the temperature on the chart had been going up was because you fudged the numbers and HID THE DECLINE!
Message to people who live in Realville, when you hear someone calling it a hiatus, tell him to shut up. It's a failed prediction. Just like when the weatherman tells you it's going ot rain and it doesn't.
