Global Warming Stopped 16 Years Ago – Met Office

Global Warming stopped 16 years ago according to a recent met office report. This is not ‘pie in the sky’ reportage but based on real statistics, even if this report is in the Daily Mail What we have to remember is that the Race to Wind is still dictated by European and UN IPCC dogma based on the Global warming, or more accurately Anthropogenic Global Warming, that is increasing proven as erroneous. Computer models were simply inaccurate. Any statistician should tell you that forecasting long terms trends needs previous long term data. Something Climatologists don’t have. Let us take this a step further. Computer models are exactly that: a model, a prediction based on historical data. Yes you can factor in forward trends but it still requires history. Read about the Hockey Stick effect. The old adage ‘rubbish in=rubbish’ out is as relevant to the University of East Anglia’s computer models as it is to my PC at home! That data collection and collation is often left to junior, wet behind the ears university post-grad students is a fact of life. The Prof doesn’t give the post grad positions to the doubters. He gives them to his acolytes! Live with it and don’t assume because it has the words University Research it is any more accurate than the old woman’s seaweed!

Slightly mad. Always believes a cup is half full so continues to tilt at Wind Turbines and the politicians that seem to believe it is their god given right to ruin Scotland for a pot of fool's gold.

    Followed your link to the Mail’s webpage and was appalled to see the photo-caption: “Damage: Global warming has been caused in part by the CO2 emitted by fossil fuels. This image shows smoke billowing out of a power station”. Well, no, it shows condensation billowing out of some cooling-towers. Do these folk not know the difference between water and smoke? It’s just another example of the fact that until this sort of blatant disinformation ceases, the truth will never be heard, let alone accepted.

    • We are in the hands of the media and, unfortunately, they are so ill informed. I agree with you and I did apologise in a roundabout way for quoting the Mail. If I corrected every inaccuracy I would be seen as a pedant. I put a photo up recently of a mining town in Pennsylvania with clean streets, brightly painted shops and houses and a neat and tidy mine next to a clean power station. It was criticised by some as unrealistic. It was fact! We live in a time warp of grimy mills and slag heaps. The world has moved on as has modern technology and our treatment of the environment.

    Don’t get me wrong, Dougal – I wasn’t being critical of you. Your choice to use the Mail’s take on the matter was good, as it highlights the way in which such inaccuracies become mainstream opinion. Go forth and publish their mistakes (I would, and I do) – it might make them sit up and take note of their failings, and maybe consider how good (or not) their reporting and editorial staff really are.

    Keep up the good work!
