16 (more) years of global warming

16 (more) years of global warming

The nice folks at Skeptical Science have written a handy article, accompanied by an equally handy video, that explains how human greenhouse gas emissions have continued to warm the planet over the past 16 years – despite recent claims that global warming has stalled.

The Daily Mail, The Telegraph and The Times were among those news outlets to write articles with this viewpoint, jumping on the back of Met Office figures that they interpreted to carry this line.

A piece by James Delingpole in The Daily Mail was promptly rebuffed by the Met Office, and after spending the day examining the evidence and collecting views for his eco audit blog, The Guardian’s Leo Hickman similarly rejected the sceptic claims.

You can read the excellent Skeptical Science piece, and watch the video, here.
