This past century of global warming? It ain't natural!
"Warming isn't happening!" "It's the sun!" "The warming (that isn't even happening) is just natural variation." Their meritless tactics mirror those employed by creationists so well that the National Center for Science Education now provides support for climate science education in addition to their work in evolution instruction.
In any case, today we learn that the rate of global temperature rise over the past century is unlike anything seen since the last Ice Age.
The research appears in the journal, Science. A nice summary appeared this morning on NPR.
Climate science deniers prefer to announce their "findings" (usually bloated misinterpretations of cherry-picked research) in such distinguished scientific journals as The Daily Mail, Forbes, Fox News, and The Wall Street Journal.
