Rising temperatures, influenced by natural events such as El Niño, have a corresponding increase in the release of carbon dioxide from tropical forest ecosystems, according to a new study out today. - CSIRO

The scientific questions posed by the current pause in global surface warming require us to understand in much greater detail the flows of energy into, out of, and around the Earth system. - UK MetOffice

Lots of “our understanding is getting better” and not a lot of “nobody has a clue what’s going on”.  - Bishop Hill
