All but natural

And I thought we are still battling the warming?  In fact, we need to do something drastic in 100 months.  But a new study shows that the "earth is undergoing natural climate shift".

The research team has found the warming trend of the past 30 years has stopped and in fact global temperatures have leveled off since 2001.

The most recent climate shift probably occurred at about the year 2000.

Now the question is how has warming slowed and how much influence does human activity have?

But if we don't understand what is natural, I don't think we can say much about what the humans are doing. So our interest is to understand -- first the natural variability of climate -- and then take it from there. So we were very excited when we realized a lot of changes in the past century from warmer to cooler and then back to warmer were all natural ...
