The important conclusion of our study is not that the data sets we analyze display small sea-level decelerations, but that accelerations, whether negative or positive (we reference studies that found small positive accelerations), are quite small. To reach the multimeter levels projected for 2100 by RV requires large positive accelerations that are one to two orders of magnitude greater than those yet observed in sea-level data.
DOCTOR DAVID TRAVIS (University of Wisconsin-Whitewater): Around the 12th, later on in the day, when I was driving to work, and I noticed how bright blue and clear the sky was, and...at first I didn't think about it, then I realized the sky was unusually clear.
DAVID TRAVIS: It was certainly, you know, one of the tiny positives that may have come out of this—an opportunity to do research—that hopefully will never happen again.
DAVID TRAVIS: We found that the change in temperature range during those three days was just over one degree centigrade. And you have to realize that from a layman's perspective that doesn't sound like much, but from a climate perspective that is huge.

Why should they 'renegotiate' the Paris Agreement simply because the U.S. left it?
Regardless of the weak, horribly belated efforts to combat man-made climate change, it still doesn't change the simple physics:
Energetic radiation radiates from the Sun's surface.
Some of this radiation reaches the Earth, penetrates the atmosphere, and is absorbed by the surface of the Earth.
Less energetic radiation radiates from the Earth's surface.
Some of that less energetic radiation is absorbed and re-emitted by greenhouse gases.
More greenhouse gases means more heat redistribution nearer to the surface.
Carbon dioxide is a greenhouse gas.
We are increasing carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.
