The supposed consensus on man-made global warming is facing an inconvenient challenge after the release of new temperature data showing the planet has not warmed for the past 15 years.
The figures suggest that we could even be heading for a mini ice age to rival the 70-year temperature drop that saw frost fairs held on the Thames in the 17th Century.
Based on readings from more than 30,000 measuring stations, the data was issued last week without fanfare by the Met Office and the University of East Anglia Climatic Research Unit. It confirms that the rising trend in world temperatures ended in 1997...

Wow, I'd like to hope it'll arrive before July. We live in the desert and the highlands have barely had any snow. We're in for a scorcher of a summer if there's no monsoon.
Mini Ice Age - we are counting on you. Y'all come on down an' see us some time!
C’mon all you farmers. Get those cows farting so we can warm things up a bit!!
Good thing I bought a new down coat
But ... but ... where’d the “hockey stick” go??? Wasn’t one of them educated professors from the University of East Anglia the one who said temperatures will climb quickly if we don’t stop putting out carbon dioxide?
I believe it was in the 70’s, they were saying the same thing. OMG, we’re going to freeze.
They just can’t figure out how to make money on these damn weather changes.
Oh Nooooo, it’s AGC
I live in the greater Chicago area, and as such I am a strong supporter of increased global warming.
How long, if ever, before they admit that their "groundbreaking science" is nothing more than broken science?
Warming or cooling, who cares? The sky is falling!
From the article:
"Yet, in its paper, the Met Office claimed that the consequences now would be negligible because the impact of the sun on climate is far less than man-made carbon dioxide."
Al Gore could not be reached for comment.
Image the "fanfare" had the numbers been in the opposite direction. These people are such puke hypocrites.
Ten years from now may have many wishing for the good old catastrophic global warming years.
S. Mississippi has had a few really cold winters over the last decade, but this one has been pretty mild. It might not be long before I get to experience a New York winter without travelling north.
But I thought the last 11 years including last year were the warmest on record? LOL
“S. Mississippi has had a few really cold winters over the last decade, but this one has been pretty mild. It might not be long before I get to experience a New York winter without travelling north. “
Mild up here in NY too. We’ve only had one winter snowstorm of any consequence about a week ago. We got more snow during the freak northeaster at the end of October.
I heard it is the La Nina keeping the jet stream running high over the more northern USA.
