A new article in Nature should do the trick of debunking global warming. The question is, will anyone notice? Here's an article a bit more user firiendly describing the issue.
Must we go through what "hide the decline" means again? I can't believe how easily people swallowed the Kool Aid on this warmist agenda.

Wow. It only takes one heat wave to bring the global warming idiots out of the woodwork, I guess. How soon everyone forgot how goddamn cold it was a couple winters ago. As far as I am concerned that's a push right there.
Jay Pasachoff, an astronomy professor at Williams College, said that Pluto's global warming was "likely not connected with that of the Earth. The major way they could be connected is if they were caused by a large increase in sunlight. But the solar constant - the amount of sunlight received each second - is carefully monitored by spacecraft, and we know the sun's output is much too steady to be changing the temperature of Pluto."
Pluto's orbit is much more elliptical than that of the other planets, and its rotational axis is tipped by a large angle relative to its orbit. Both factors could contribute to drastic seasonal changes.
Did you even read the article, or just the title....?
"It takes time for materials to warm up and cool off, which is why the hottest part of the day on Earth is usually around 2 or 3 p.m. rather than local noon, when sunlight is the most intense," Tholen said. Because Pluto's year is equal to about 250 Earth years, 13 years after Pluto's closest approach to the Sun is like 1:15 p.m. on Earth.
