According to NASA, 2013 is tied with 2009 and 2006 for the 7th warmest temperatures since 1880. Further, the report categorized 2013 as proof that there is a "Sustained Long-Term Climate Warming Trend."
Well, call me crazy but "tying" past records is not a "warming trend." For there to be a true warming trend, any logical person would think that records would continue to be broken. "Tying" past temperatures only implies that the so-called "warming trend" is gone. It also reaffirms the fact that the earth stopped warming back in 1997.
Apparently, even NASA can't put the politics of climate change aside and honestly and scientifically report on global warming trends.
