I'm afraid the results are in. Yes, the earth has cooled slightly since 2001. But that is the bad news. You see cooling may indicate that the climate is going into a consolidation phase, in which excess energy is gathered in various natural systems only to be spewed out later, with a vengeance. Swirling whirlpools of dead polar bears, for instance, can hold tremendous amounts of energy.
No, don't think cooling is good. The only thing worse than cooling would be a climate that remained unchanged for several years. Or a continuing slow rise in average global temperature, that would be bad too.
I don't want to come across as a know-it-all, but I've been looking into these computer models and I felt compelled to share my knowledge. Pretty much the only way you can know for sure what the future will bring is to gather the data yourself: Get an industrial grade thermometer and find a place for it outside of a ground level window. Check it every morning. If the thermometer is still there, we're doomed.
