Putting it simply, this is all misinformation from desperate global warming deniers.
An article by David Rose appears today in the Mail on Sunday under the title: ‘Global warming stopped 16 years ago, reveals Met Office report quietly released… and here is the chart to prove it’
It is the second article Mr Rose has written which contains some misleading information, after he wrote an article earlier this year on the same theme – you see our response to that one here.
To address some of the points in the article published today:
Firstly, the Met Office has not issued a report on this issue. We can only assume the article is referring to the completion of work to update the HadCRUT4 global temperature dataset compiled by ourselves and the University of East Anglia’s Climate Research Unit.
We announced that this work was going on in March and it was finished this week. You can see the HadCRUT4 website here.
Secondly, Mr Rose says the Met Office made no comment about its decadal climate predictions. This is because he did not ask us to make a comment about them.
You can see our full response to all of the questions Mr Rose did ask us below:
If only you can get past the misinformation and ignore all the vast number of propaganda sites saying the same crap and, instead, look at the REAL science (in particular, basic physics says CO2 SHOULD cause warming. Do you deny this? YES OR NO? ) and the REAL unbiased raw data that hasn't been manipulated by the deniers, you would see a clear long term trend in global warming. Of course, you never will, because you not interested in learning something new and just want to believe whatever you want to believe while I don't.
To elaborate on that last point:
I do not want
man made global warming to be true; I WANT it to be FALSE! -because that would mean we can go on polluting and not be responsible for harming humanity. But what has the scientific facts got to do with what I or you want
? Or, putting it another way:
Truth is indifferent from what we want it to be so don't let your wants tell you the truth else you will get lies.
