JLF’s Roy Cordato has it:
But wait: There’s more news that you probably missed. Now this is a headline that did appear, but not in any venue that you are likely to have noticed: “Met Office Forecasts No Global Temperature Rise.” This headline appeared on a pretty obscure website called “The Observatory.” And who is the Met Office? It is the United Kingdom Met Office, and Met is short for “Meteorological.” The UK Met Office is heavily relied upon by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, both for climate data and climate forecasts.
So what is the Met Office predicting? No warming for at least the next five years. This is on top of its own data showing that there has been no warming for the last 15 years. According to the Met Office, the planet is looking at 20 years with no warming trend.
Here’s my question regarding global warming: For the past 40-plus years, ever since the evil President Nixon proposed the EPA, we’ve had stringent environmental regulations in place. Reading the mainstream media headlines on global warming these days, are we to assume that those environmental regulations haven’t worked?
