GENEVA (Reuters) - There has been no reverse in the trend of global warming and there is still consistent evidence for man-made climate change, the head of the U.N. World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) said on Monday.
A slow-down in the average pace of warming at the planet's surface this century has been cited by "climate skeptics" as evidence that climate change is not happening at the potentially catastrophic rate predicted by a U.N. panel of scientists.
But U.N. weather agency chief Michel Jarraud said ocean temperatures, in particular, were rising fast, and extreme weather events, forecast by climate scientists, showed climate change was inevitable for the coming centuries.
"There is no standstill in global warming," Jarraud said as he presented the WMO's annual review of the world's climate which concluded that 2013 tied with 2007 as the sixth hottest year since 1850 when recording of annual figures began.
"The warming of our oceans has accelerated, and at lower depths. More than 90 percent of the excess energy trapped by greenhouse gases is stored in the oceans.

Global Warming is a NWO construct, to help support their implementation of Agenda 21 and the Sea Treaty.
Follow the money. Here you see how science can be hijacked.
Why isn’t this CRAP being chalenged on it’s own admitted lack of falsifiable standards?
I expect global warming to go on for centuries. It has been going on for about 70,000 years since the end of the last interglacial period. Since permanent ice, as it exists in Greenland and Antarctica has only existed about 5% of the time in earth’s history, I expect it will continue to get warmer until the earth reaches it’s “normal” temperature.
The thing is, human activity has nothing to do with this.
These guys can’t predict the weather for tomorrow, and yet they know the future.
i'm sorry, was that too nihilistic
“... showed climate change was inevitable for the coming centuries.”
Okay, so no point in worrying about it then.
Those undersea volcanoes can spew for centuries.
I got it...6 billion earthlings have been exhaling through a straw at the sea shore:
It took a lot of effort to get that much CO2 into the ocean.
I predict severe global warming when our sun grows to become a red giant. My timeline for this is a few billion years from now.
Germany's already trimming their green energy subsidies, which proves your point.
I would agree that man made global warming is continuing at the same rate as its always been.
‘Germany’s already trimming their green energy subsidies’
THE SPANISH CRAP CANNED THEIR WHOLE GREEN STEAMING SHOVEL OF GREEN B.S. SOMETIME BACK...THEY REALIZED THE INSANITY WAS BREAKING THEM....AIEEEEE CHIHUAHUA....Y MUY BUENO FINALAMENTE, POR LO MENOS..
A fresh steaming pile of obama.
Warming extremists have been telling the climate change, Carbon lie for so long they are starting to believe it. The fact that it is their bread and butter now, and hope for great wealth and elitism in the future, makes the lie real for them. What the climate does or doesn’t do, or the failures of their climate models and shoddy science mean nothing. What would these climate scientists do without global warming? It’s reality for them, and they are more than ready to kill anyone who says it isn’t.
Global warming is what closed the land bridge from Siberia to Alaska.
I’ll take some global warming. It feel like mid-January her in the northeast, and Cape Cod/eastern MA may get a blizzard.
I don’t know how to post pics so I beg of you: Where’s the huge manatee?
This dossier on Maurice Strong really is very good reading
Here is a small snippet:
With the support of the Canadian government, he has participated in or directed practically every major environmental initiative that has come out of the United Nations from that time to this. He organized the first World Conference on the Environment, which produced the epochal 1987 Brundtland Report, the incendiary that has ignited the present global ‘green’ movement...’
Strong, wrote Wood, believes that one thing that might save the earth is a ‘worldwide spiritual awakening,’ and baca is dedicated to that end> Strong, like his wife Hanne, has also had spiritual experiences, as Wood related. ‘He confesses that a few years ago, while walking with the famed author and journalist Bill Moyers in the desert nearby, something strange, something inexplicable happened. According to Strong, ‘We’d been walking, talking, heading back to my parked car. Suddenly, this bush ~ some sage¬brush ~ erupted in flames in front of us! I was astounded. Moyers was, too. A bush bursting into flames’....It is the most mystical experience he has had.”
Wood concluded his profile of Strong with Strong narrating the novel he would love to compose if only he could write. ‘Each year, [Strong] explains as background to the telling of the novel’s plot, the World Economic Forum convenes in Davos, Switzerland. Over 1,000 CEO’s, prime ministers, finance ministers, and leading academics gather in February to attend meetings and set economic agendas for the year ahead. With this as a setting, he then says: ‘What if a small group of these world leaders were to conclude that the principle risk to of the rich countries? And if the world is to survive, the rich countries would have to sign an agreement reducing their impact on the environment. Will they do it? And Strong, driving as I take notes, looks at me. Then his eyes go back to Highway 17. The man who founded the United Nations Environment Program and who wrote parts of the Brundtland Report and who in 1992 will try to get the world’s leaders to sign just such an agreement, savors the question hanging in the air.
Will they do it? Will the rich countries agree to reduce their impact on the environment? Will they agree to save the earth? ‘Strong resumes his story. ‘The group’s conclusion is ‘no.’ The rich countries won’t do it. They won’t change. So, in order to save the planet, the group decides: Isn’t the only hope for the planet that the industrialized civilizations collapse? Isn’t it our responsibility to bring this about?’
‘This group of world leaders, he continues, ‘form a secret society to bring about an economic collapse. It’s February. They’re all at Davos. These aren’t terrorists. They’re world leaders. They have positioned themselves in the world’s commodi¬ties and stock markets. They’ve engineered, using their access to stock markets and computers and gold supplies, a panic. Then, they prevent the world’s stock markets from closing. They jam the gears. They hire mercenaries who hold the rest of the world leaders at Davos as hostage. The markets can’t close. The rich countries...’ And Strong makes a slight motion with his fingers as if he were flicking a cigarette butt out the window. ‘I sit there spellbound. This not any storyteller talking. This is Maurice Strong. He knows these world leaders...He sits at the fulcrum of power. He is in a position to do it. ‘I probably shouldn’t be saying things like this.’ he says... ‘When the truth is finally told, Maurice and Hanne Strong fear the world will come to this. No secret societies. No hostage-taking at Davos. But it will come to the same conclusion: the global economy, sapped by credit and debt loads and environmental disasters, will simply come unstuck. And nothing ~ not even the dreams of Baca ~ can save humanity from itself....They fear that Baca will be, at best, an oasis in the desert of the future ~ and at worst, a place where dreams die.’ Waiting For The Spirit To Depart
The 97 Percent figure on Global Warming
Lawrence Solomon, executive director of Energy Probe and author of The Deniers, carefully explains how dishonest researchers cooked the books:
The number stems from a 2009 online survey of 10,257 earth scientists, conducted by two researchers at the University of Illinois, he wrote in a 2010 article. The survey results must have deeply disappointed the researchers in the end, they chose to highlight the views of a subgroup of just 77 scientists, 75 of whom thought humans contributed to climate change. The ratio 75/77 produces the 97 percent figure that pundits now tout.
Climate change has been happening for 4 billion years. the climate will continue to change till the earth is gone. The climate on Earth has warmed and cooled millions of times throughout it’s history.
Speaking at a town hall event in Johannesburg, South Africa, on Saturday, President Barack Obama claimed that the planet will boil over if everyone has access to air conditioning, automobiles and big houses. That is, unless the world finds new ways of producing energy, he said. Ultimately, if you think about all the youth that everybody has mentioned here in Africa, if everybody is raising living standards to the point where everybody has got a car and everybody has got air conditioning, and everybody has got a big house, well, the planet will boil over unless we find new ways of producing energy, Obama said.
A meeting is being held in my small Idaho city tomorrow for the purpose of initiating a local chapter of the Citizens Climate Lobby, an entity which I had not previously known existed.
Its proponents insist that “Climate change is the defining issue of our times!!” And “It is far more than just an environmental issue. The issue is whether human civilization will be able to continue as the climate becomes less and less hospitable to our food production and survival. As such it is an inter-generational human rights issue” We are warned that “human suffering will increase at an exponential rate in the absence of serious action to curb carbon pollutions”
This blatherskite was written by a university professor. I will not attend the meeting, but will watch with much interest the progress in forming a local chapter.
Agenda over evidence.
Where have you been? Weather prediction is incredibly accurate these days, due to global weather modeling. I recall a big February snow storm, I think two years ago, that was predicted four or five days in advance for Chicago, at a time when there was no such weather system in existence anywhere. They predicted it would form over western Texas, track north, gain strength, and hit smack dab on Chicago days later ... and it did, with the predicted snow amounts. Absolutely amazing.
The thing is, this has nothing to do with climate models. These are not based on weather models, and hence are problematical, as they are not actual dynamical models, the way the weather models are. This is an issue which interests me greatly, but I don't know much more about it! ... except that it was raised by the recently deceased what's-his-name, the French climate scientist who wrote a book on GW skepticism, which is naturally hard to find these days.
We must act now before it’s too late.
I hope global warming goes on for a very long time. If it does not the planet will freeze into an ice ball within a week!
"Annual review of the world's climate" is an oxymoron.
First, let's review reality...
"...major ice ages have occurred over and over again, with ten of them affecting the planet in the past one million years and another ten in the million or so years before that. Each one persists for about 90,000 years, after which it is followed by an approximate 10,000-year interglacial."
Interglacial, for those in Rio Linda, very young children and members of WMO, are periods of enough warming to separate glacial periods, (D'OH!) approximately 10,000 years, before things start cooling down again.
Clearly, Climate differs from weather in a most dramatic way, said periods being defined in tens of thousands of years.
For the life of me I can't take any self-defined "scientists" seriously, who can't grasp that crucial definition of the endlessly repeating cycle.
Certainly, any discussion dealing with world temperatures since 1850 are playing with weather, not climate. And credible scientists should know that; hucksters do not.
No further comment should be necessary.
,,,and so will global cooling.
