I’m sure you may have noticed this but it is still worth pointing out,as this B-BBC does!
“It’s taken two weeks, but the BBC website has finally gotten around to reporting the Met Office’s press release of 24th December that the so-called Climate Model has been revised (see http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-20947224). Why so long? Because the new model suggests that any temperature rise will be less than expected, based on new computer calculations. It couldn’t very well do anything else – pretty much all sources agree that there has been no warming for about 15 years now and that “natural variability” (no, really?) may be the cause. Climate forecasting may be about as scientific as astrology, but even the “scientists” have to face the Inconvenient Truth occasionally. But just imagine if the new model had forecast that warming was higher than expected? Can you imagine the BBC response then? It would have immediately been the lead article on their website; you know the sort of thing: “Global Warming out of control, more taxes and EU/UN involvement needed now!”
