UK Met Office Gets Overheated 13 Times Out Of 14

And so does Australia’s Professor Clive Hamilton

Britain’s Met Office keeps guessing too high when predicting global temperatures:

So far this century, of 14 yearly headline predictions made by the Met Office, 13 have been too warm…

The 2013 global temperature also means that the Met Office’s projection that half the years between 2010 and 2015 would be hotter than the hottest year on record (which on the HADCRUT measure was in 1998), issued around the time of the Copenhagen climate conference in 2009, is already incorrect.

The Met Office believe one of the reasons for this ‘warm bias’ in their annual global projections is the lack of observational data in the Arctic circle, which has been the fastest warming area on earth.

They also suggest another reason why the global surface temperature is falling short of their projections is because some of the heat is being absorbed in the ocean beneath the surface.

There is, of course, a third and more likely option – which the BBC is far too polite to even mention. It’s that the climate models the warmist Met uses have exaggerated the influence of man’s emissions on the climate. As climate scientist Professor Judith Curry noted in testimony to Congress this month:

For the past 16 years, there has been no significant increase in surface temperature. There is a growing discrepancy between observations and climate model projections… The IPCC does not have a convincing or confident explanation for this hiatus in warming.  There is growing evidence of decreased climate sensitivity to atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations… The growing evidence that climate models are too sensitive to CO2 has implications for the attribution of late 20th century warming and projections of 21st century climate change.


Professor Clive Hamilton, the abusive and dictatorial Gaian climate catastrophist, has already likened sceptics of catastrophic man-made warming to Holocaust-deniers, even claiming they could kill ”hundreds of millions”. I thought that was the gold-standard of abuse, but now he likens them to zealots who oppose immunisation of children:

The media treat the anti-vaccinators with the disdain they deserve, but sections of the media see no contradiction in actively promoting the same type of anti-science fanaticism when it comes to climate…

What would we think if Prime Minister Tony Abbott declared “immunisation science is crap”?

And, gosh, it turns out that my blog could kill the planet:

The anti-immunisation brigade is still at it, yet giant strides have nevertheless been made in protecting public health. There is no such luxury in the case of climate change, and it is the anti-environmental paranoia of men like Abbott and Newman, and Andrew Bolt and George Pell, that endangers the health of our planet.

I remain astonished – even alarmed – that someone as extreme in his views and rhetoric is actually a professor, educating our young.
