East Anglia CRU: Global Warming Ended Fifteen Years Ago
The supposed ‘consensus’ on man-made global warming is facing an inconvenient challenge after the release of new temperature data showing the planet has not warmed for the past 15 years.
The figures suggest that we could even be heading for a mini ice age to rival the 70-year temperature drop that saw frost fairs held on the Thames in the 17th Century.
Based on readings from more than 30,000 measuring stations, the data was issued last week without fanfare by the Met Office and the University of East Anglia Climatic Research Unit. It confirms that the rising trend in world temperatures ended in 1997.
Thanks to former Rhode Island resident Tom Wigand for the heads-up.
Note that the source of this data, far from being an eeeeeeevil oil company, is the British university which was the site of the global warming scandal, ClimateGate – in other words, one of the institutions which has for years now been promoting the theory of anthropogenic global warming.
The Mail (UK) notes that the CRU released this data, interestingly, “without fanfare”. If the temperature trend had been up rather than down, would they have released this report in such a low-key fashion?
