The slowdown in the rate of global mean surface temperature warming over the past 15 years or so has arguably led to one of the most contentious debates in the climate community. In fact, some argue there is no "hiatus." The latest edition of the newsletter, Understanding the Earth's Climate Warming Hiatus: Putting the pieces together, features six articles providing various perspectives on the controversial topic.
