This is clearly misinformation because it is not difficult to see that we are still on an upwards course. The chart on the left shows what a small part of all the heat absorbed by the Earth goes into the atmosphere and the vast majority into the sea. The chart below shows where the surface temperature has paused twice before in 1900 and 1940. In those times there was not the technology or research to explain what happened. When I was young the newspapers reported we were going into the next ice age. Another theory is that the coal smoke in the atmosphere, as the World geared up after the war, cooled the climate.
Current research indicates that the heat is going into the Oceans but we still know very little about what goes on in the depths.
