The flurry of news from The Met Office is confusing. In order to make it clear, I have summarized it below.
We originally thought that the past decade would warm quickly, but then natural variability caused by man-made pollution resulted in lower temperatures (as the models predicted.) But we have recently discovered that the natural man-made slow down in temperature is not as great as we originally didn’t predict.
Meanwhile, expect heavy snow and bitter cold again this week caused by Chinese power plants which pump out too much CO2. 2010 didn’t used to be, but is now the hottest year ever.
