Global Warming Slowing in US

There is evidence that, in the last decade of temperature observations, global warming has been slowing in the United States.
We are not nearly joking on this matter, and we do have evidence to prove it. Below are some images from the National Climatic Data Center, or NCDC. The first image is of the average mean temperature from 2001-2011 with regional trends.
We can clearly see how much of the US has been slowing in global warming, even to the point of cooling down. The charts above the regions depict trends for a more in-depth view of how the temperatures have been sliding in the past decade.
What does all of this mean? It means that there is now solid evidence that global warming may have taken quite a hit, as this cooling indication is showing how winters are colder and summers are cooler over the last decade. If you want more images with regions, you can go to the NCDC's website.

Since people seem to like winter on here, yes.
Also, check the winter forecast revision post- I have the link there for the ECMWF Model.
