Climate slowdown means extreme rates of warming 'not as likely'


Scientists say the recent downturn in the rate of global warming will lead to lower temperature rises in the short-term.
Since 1998, there has been an unexplained “standstill” in the heating of the Earth’s atmosphere.

Writing in Nature Geoscience, the researchers say this will reduce predicted warming in the coming decades.
But long-term, the expected temperature rises will not alter significantly.

The slowdown in the expected rate of global warming hasbeen studied for several years now. Earlier this year, the UK Met Office lowered their five-year temperature forecast.

[/quote]Forecasting the weather is dicey at best and there is no short term validity to predictions that can really say are accurate all the time.

For example today the weather forecast tells me it has been raining all days except in reality it has not.

So how is predicting long term weather patterns when they can not even judge the variables for short term? These computer models have been proved false repeatedly. Those who believe the hype either are naive or lack the experience of those like us who have seen weather patterns through the years.

Heck, we have seen weather anomalies such as snow in Baghdad which occurred just a few years back and had been the first time in 100 years.
