Enjoy the pause in global warming while it lasts, because it's probably the
last one we will get this century. Once temperatures start rising again, it
looks like they will keep going up without a break for the rest of the
century, unless we cut our greenhouse gas emissions.

The slowdown in global warming

which are burying heat in the water. But even if that happens again, or a
volcanic eruption spews cooling particles into the air
