You might remember hearing about the global warming “hiatus” a few years back—a pause in Earth’s inexorably rising temperature, which some used as evidence that climate change is a hoax. But scientists are now completely sure that the pause never happened. And we know exactly where the missing heat wound up.
Global temperatures haven't gone up in the last few years. Does that mean climate change isn't happening? No. In this video, York University chemist Kevin Cowtan explains very carefully how he and his colleague discovered that the "pause" is a fiction, the result of bad data and bad statistical reasoning.
