Trends in Climate Change Science

An important event in the world of climate change occurred on Christmas Eve 2012.

There weren’t any official announcements made.

No dramatic press releases were quoted in the New York Times. No awe struck climate scientists were interviewed on CNN.

It appeared at an obscure but very important place in southern England called the Met Office.

What quietly happened there on Christmas Eve signals the beginning of the end for catastrophic global warming as we know it.

Met Office Updates Global Warming Forecast

The Met Office changed its global warming prediction for the next decade. As you can see, it was dramatically reduced.

The Met Office is England’s National Weather Service. It operates out of the Hadley Centre for Climate Research. It is not an ordinary weather service.

The Met coordinates and combines the global temperature data collected by the Hadley Centre and the Climate Research Unit (CRU) of East Anglia College, also in England.

East Anglia collects and combines global land based temperature databases. The Hadley Centre collects global sea surface temperatures.

Their combined databases are used to create the Earth’s complete temperature profile from which literally all IPCC conclusions are based.

There is no greater scientific authority on global temperatures than the Met.

The Met Office is the epicenter of the global warming universe.

Implications of the New Met Office Forecast

If this newest Met prediction proves true then it will mean that there won’t be any statistically significant global warming over a 20 year period!

The Met has long known that its temperature database shows no statistical warming over the last 10-15 years. They adjusted their forecast modeling and now it dramatically lowers their global warming decadal forecast.

This shows that the mainstream climate science community is officially realizing that global temperatures have plateaued. Global warming has (temporarily) stopped.

That is big news. It means that long predicted catastrophic global warming is NOT materializing. It means the IPCC is wrong.

Conclusions

Nobody learned about this from a Met Office press release.

Eagle-eyed AGW skeptic Richard Smith noticed the change and brought it to the world’s attention on January 5th, 2013. Tallbloke’s Talkshop and Bob Tisdale publicized it.

It is a sad commentary on the state of climate science research when important developments are not reported from official sources.

Climate science operates within a politically supercharged “us-against-them” atmosphere.
It shouldn’t.
