|Unsurprisingly this figure from the Met Office was |
not published, if it had it would have clearly
shown that Rose's assertions were pure fabrication
on his part.
The Mail on Sunday does not have a good track record in telling the truth about climate change having published other features that encourage its readers to believe it isn't happening. This is not the only newspaper that regularly fails to tell the truth, or 'massages' storylines to peddle some kind of belief that fails to acknowledge evidence. So I was quite interested to find the Angry Mob website. Unsurprisingly, much of this excellent blog is aimed at the appalling catalogue of journalistic misinformation churned out by the Daily Mail and its sister newspaper.
Back to Rose's assertions and the truth - the Met Office says it "is absolutely clear is that we have continued to see a trend of warming, with the decade of 2000-2009 being clearly the warmest in the instrumental record going back to 1850". Don't bother to get the sledges out then, buy the suntan cream, collect rainwater and don't live in a place that is less than 10 metres below sea level.
