Global warming skeptics vindication

Article here, courtesy of the BBC.

The most poinagnt fact in the article that I found:

This headline may come as a bit of a surprise, so too might that fact that the warmest year recorded globally was not in 2008 or 2007, but in 1998.
But it is true. For the last 11 years we have not observed any increase in global temperatures.
And our climate models did not forecast it, even though man-made carbon dioxide, the gas thought to be responsible for warming our planet, has continued to rise.

So 2009's data on the debate seem to be swinging to the skeptics. Congratulations on mollifying the environmentalist extremists, at least for the short-term.
