As most of you know, the DailyMail had an article stating the Met Office had said that the globe has stopped warming since 1997. And, it also essentially said, “It’s the sun! Stupid!” To use U.S. campaign rhetoric.
Well, the Met office has disputed this. Basically stating that they said no such thing. And that we shouldn’t believe our lying eyes! Instead, we should listen to their babbling rationalizations.
Well, not being one who wishes to be accused of misquoting our friends as the Met Office, I’ll quote them verbatim.
For clarity I have included our full response to David Rose below:A spokesman for the Met Office said: “The ten year projection remains groundbreaking science. The complete period for the original projection is not over yet and these projections are regularly updated to take account of the most recent data.
- “The projections are probabilistic in nature, and no individual forecast should be taken in isolation. Instead, several decades of data will be needed to assess the robustness of the projections.
“However, what is absolutely clear is that we have continued to see a trend of warming, with the decade of 2000-2009 being clearly the warmest in the instrumental record going back to 1850. Depending on which temperature records you use, 2010 was the warmest year on record for NOAA NCDC and NASA GISS, and the second warmest on record in HadCRUT3.”
So, they are insisting that the warming continued unabated during the decade 2000-2009.
Heh, heh, lol……… lmao…….rotflmao………rotflmaopmp!!!!!
Yes, that’s way different. We’re hotting right on up there. For those who are curious, the 10yr. slope = 0.00165189°C/yr. I haven’t a clue what Mr. Rose was thinking when he said there hasn’t been any warming since 1997. Clearly, he overlooked the 16/10,000ths of a degree.
