"We've now had close to 18 years of no global warming, even though carbon dioxide emissions have increased 25 percent over the last 18 years. Nobody can explain that," Committee Chairman Rep. Lamar Smith said on Bloomberg.
Smith filed a subpoena for any communications related to a study the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration put out over the summer, which showed there actually has been warming throughout the 2000s — and a lot of it. (Videos via C-SPAN, NASA)
