Deniers of the climate change have pointed to a hiatus in global warming between 1998 and 2012, and they used it to cite evidence that climate change is a hoax. The existence of a hiatus or a slowdown in global mean surface temperature was even acknowledged by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

As it is easier to fool somebody than convincing them, that seems to be the case for individuals who reject climate change's scientific consensus, many of whom hold on tightly to the idea that global warming went on hiatus since 1998. Nonetheless, new analysis published in Nature found out that the hiatus can be expounded by incomplete data, inconsistencies in modeling, as well as a natural short-term variation, Cosmos Magazine reported.

The authors of the study made it known that when these elements are taken into account, the climate change hiatus is not inconsistent with the human influence regarding global climate. However, climate sceptics keep on utilizing the hiatus to strengthen their argument, leaving the researchers to put forward for consideration that its communication around climate science and not the hiatus itself.

Also, the year 2016 was the third straight year to have a global average surface temperature. In spite of that, Global warming is happening, and it never stopped or paused.
