Met Office Report: Global Warming Stopped 16 Years Ago

Britain’s national weather service, the Met Office, has just released new figures showing that there has been no global warming–repeat, no global warming–for the last sixteen years:

The new data, compiled from more than 3,000 measuring points on land and sea, was issued  quietly on the internet, without any media fanfare, and, until today, it has not been reported …
Some climate scientists, such as Professor Phil Jones, director of the Climatic Research Unit at the University of East Anglia, last week dismissed the significance of the plateau, saying that 15 or 16 years is too short a period from which to draw conclusions.
Others disagreed. Professor Judith Curry, who is the head of the climate science department at America’s prestigious Georgia Tech university, told The Mail on Sunday that it was clear that the computer models used to predict future warming were ‘deeply flawed’.
The regular data collected on global temperature is called Hadcrut 4, as it is jointly issued by the Met Office’s Hadley Centre and Prof Jones’s Climatic Research Unit.

Here is a graph showing their data. Please note that even though it looks like temperatures have varied widely, the graph shows a maximum yearly variation in temperature of about .5° C (1° F), and the trend line for the last 16 years is flat.

  2. Will this end the global warming now climate change debate? I doubt it. Sun spot activity couldn’t possinly affect planet earth, could it?.

  3. This is in spite of continued CO2 being pumped into the atmosphere.
    CO2 never did cause global warming because it is a heavier than air gas that does not rise into the atmosphere but sinks to the ground when released
