Warmist prof: Lack of global warming could be natural or… manmade!

Either the ocean is eating the global warming or Chinese coal is reflecting it back into space.

From Deutsche Welle:

Another possible reason Hawkins mentions is the increased burning of coal in countries like China and India. The particulates produced help reflect solar radiation back into space, and so cool the planet. He stresses it is not yet possible to say whether the current slow-down in temperature rise is being caused by natural variability or is human-induced.
