Global warming has STALLED since 1998: Met Office admits Earth's temperature is rising slower than f

MailOnline -- The Met Office has admitted that global warming has stalled.

Officials say that by 2017, temperatures will not have risen significantly for nearly 20 years.

They concede that previous forecasts were inaccurate – and have come under fire for attempting to ‘bury bad news’ by publishing the revised data on Christmas Eve.

When the Earth DID warm up, so did the Planet MARS. Everybody but the Donkeys knew Global Warming was caused by the SUN and B.S. from Al Gore.

Why is anyone surprised that the same people who said, "scientific debate is over" turned out to be wrong?

True science follows the evidence.
Politically driven science follows the next grant proposal (and more money was being funneled into "research grants" to prove the AWG was true)

Big government it always a problem.

I remember the when the ice age had started because the 60's were cool. Then the 80's were warm because of drought. Then we were all to burn up.
This has all been a FRAUD the cooling and the warming.
In both cases some of the same fools were behind both.

Why do these same people even have any status at all?

We have to stop beleiving in these fools and the stupid predictions.

c_o_jones - you mention "all-time levels"... Just how far back are you going to determine "all-time levels?" Are you sure you want to say "all-time" because that's an awfully long time span you're talking about.

Look a little closer at the graphs and you'll get the actual truth; from my eyes it seems to be this:

1: 1999 is the outlier, remove it and you'll get the steady warming the AGW disbelievers keep claiming doesn't exist (for those who allow it up to 1999). Doesn't mean that 1999 doesn't exist, but that using 1999 temperatures to buttress your arguments against global warming doesn't make sense.

2: It does appear that there's been some stalling since the mid-2000s.

3: You either have a dropping-off of the greenhouse gas effect, or China throwing up enough dust and dirt to cut down on the the effect (both by blocking the sun and by absorbing some of the CO2 and CH4). Not that they're either-or (could be both), but you have two possible answers. Occam's Razor would say the greenhouse gasses aren't having their effect.

Me, I believe that China's been canceling out the heating with their pollution. Given what I've seen both of the data and the weather, I'll take that over the other, even though the other would seem to be more believable given the Occam's Razor test.
