Karoly, however, claims this proves nothing and predicts the world will soon start warming again. But that's purely theoritical. Let's take a look at what has actually happened to the planet, because so far the Warmers' predictions have been far off the mark.
Many scientists, such as Professor Ian Plimer of Adelaide University, point out that what we have is a cooling planet, and that the last ten years of cooling already contradict the theory that human-produced gases are causing the planet to warm. For if humans were causing drastic climate changes or for the planet to warm, the planet could not pause from its heating, because humans are producing more C02 than they were 100 years ago. The math of the thing shows that humans affect only .009 percent of the planet's temperatures.
