The Met Office Challenge

The Met Office has announced their intentions to bump 2010 up to #1. (I can’t imagine which US agency might have pressured them to do that.) But their challenge is more difficult than just pushing 1998 down. The also have a 2005 problem, as it appears that 2010 will also be cooler than 2005 – because temperatures have plummeted across the globe this month.

They will need a different 2005 strategy.

It is worth remembering that in 2000, GISS pushed 1998 up and 1934 down, to make 1998 the hottest year in the US.

Now, 1998 needs to go back down to make 2010 warmer. Juggling 1934, 1998, 2005 and 2010 is like keeping four balls in the air at the same time.

    This should be fun to watch. There’s going to have to be significant coordination with HadCrut and GISS. Then there’s always the pesky satellite stations……

    No, they indicate that 2010 may be the warmest. I don’t think they’ll mind if 2005 beats it, just mutter something about la nina coming to the sceptics rescue. They may not even be able to crowbar 1998 low enough to come in below 2010 but they’ll have reduced the last record temperature to 5 years from 12 which is the really embarassing statistic.

    Tony D is a juggler!!

    Perhaps he ought to ask them for a job.

      I thought Mickey Mouse said that in the historical classic Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Or was it Donald Duck in his guest appearance in Bambi?

    Scientific evidence is Met Office focus at Cancun

    “Ahead of the latest UN talks on climate change in Mexico, the Met Office analyses long- and short-term trends in climate and reveals that the evidence for man-made warming has grown even stronger in the last year.”

    “Since the late 1970s the long-term rate of surface warming has been about 0.16 °C per decade. However, over the last decade the rate of warming has decreased.”

    Met office confirms warmer oceans mean warmer atmosphere shock!

    The next 30 years should be interesting

    Hmmm, Pope also acknowledges that the bouys are reading temps lower, so they have to be adjusted upwards to take in to account the heating that the measurement tools arent measuring, but that the Met Office knows is there????

    God, its so lucky the clunks that work in the Met Office have brains the size of small planets! 🙂
