The "outgoing" UK Government's chief scientific adviser Prof Sir John Beddington can be listened here talking to Pallab Ghosh with his...you name it...it must be "man made" co2 approach....how he has lasted as long as he has in his current position I will never know!
The sooner Sir John steps down the better...IMHO he is at best a very ignorant man in regard to his privileged position advising the UK Government on how our climate works. He states you can't draw any conclusion on any one weather event and then with his next breath states how can you have one year dry and then another one wet! As if the climate is not meant to do things like that!
What has been his downfall is that he did not explain how the "science" of climate change works....how can you have over 16 years of no warming and 16 years of extra co2 Sir John?
The UK government's chief scientist has said that there is already enough CO2 in the atmosphere for there to be more floods and droughts over the next 25 years.
Prof Sir John Beddington said there was a "need for urgency" in tackling climate change.
In October last year I had a play about with a Solar Cycle graph from informthepundits.wordpress.com, and added an overlay to show three solar cycle periods (SC12, 13 & 14), that as far as I know are not given any "minimum" status as the period was not identified as being "COLD". No, I'm not looking for any recognition about this period, and as far as I know neither is Piers Corbyn....but hey don't let that stop anyone from calling it "The Gabriel Near Minimum":)
I have now added another overlay to the original chart and also extended it with three fictitious shaped solar cycles (SC24, 25 & 26). All of these cycles are forecast to be lower then SC 23, and SC 24 is expected to be the highest of the three, be it the lowest one for 100 years! SC 25 WILL be lower then SC 24 as per latest estimate from NASA. SC 26 Is entered as similar level to SC 25 (my guess). This should bring the period up to around 2050, as you can see from above, this WILL BE A COOL/COLD period and NOT HOT as per the Met Office and the IPCC.
See below a rare photo from the winter of 1911, near the end of solar cycle 14, it makes a very good point about the "Gabriel Near Minimum".
The above Tweet from the Met Office today may have been innocent, in as much they just wanted to show that March 2011 had the warmest Easter Temperature, but my gut feel at the time was that it was an attempt to show the world warming. We will never know for sure, but the fact remains there is no sign of any warming at the moment
Met Office chief Science Officer Julia Slingo talks about 'dangerous' climate change & extreme weather and climate modelling resolutions. She still mentions co2 reduction as if it controls our climate and that is after her Met Office have now divulged that we have had 16 years with NO world temperature increase with also 16 years of extra co2 put into the Earth's atmosphere...
AVOID symposium - Panel discussions - Met Office
Published on 21 Mar 2013
Panel discussions from the AVOID symposium on 'Challenges for future research and climate change policy'.
An article by David Rose appears today in the Mail on Sunday under the title: ‘Global warming stopped 16 years ago, reveals Met Office report quietly released… and here is the chart to prove it’
It is the second article Mr Rose has written which contains some misleading information, after he wrote an article earlier this year on the same theme – you see our response to that one here.
To address some of the points in the article published today:
Firstly, the Met Office has not issued a report on this issue. We can only assume the article is referring to the completion of work to update the HadCRUT4 global temperature dataset compiled by ourselves and the University of East Anglia’s Climate Research Unit.
We announced that this work was going on in March and it was finished this week. You can see the HadCRUT4 website here.
On the 22nd September I put forward a prediction that this years Arctic sea ice extent would return to anormal level by December. It was never meant to be a prediction that would set the world on fire:) but as you will see from the above image taken today at ijis.iarc.uaf.edu/seaice the Arctic sea ice extent HAS returned to NORMAL! However this result has given more questions then answers, and that is......how can the 2006 Arctic sea ice extent, that had peaked in September 2006 as one of the most covered ice areas end up with having one of the worst results for the recent November and December periods.
What was it about the level of CO2 in November/December of 2006? Why did the media not pick up on this in the same way they did for September 2012? Sadly we will never know the answer to these questions.
I could be wrong on this but I think the clue is in the temperature of the Ocean currents and from what NASA has gone onto say it's also to do with Arctic storm force winds, this then, points to CO2 as having NOTHING to do with Arctic sea ice melt!
Meanwhile....although this years Arctic sea ice extent HAS returned to normal, as predicted, will the MSM make a point of mentioning this happy event...sadly I think not! The Arctic sea ice extent returning back to normal is not a news worthy event, it would mean that the Main Stream Media would have to say CO2 does not melt ice afterall
In four years time the world will be COOLER, and who knows what else. One thing is for certain, in four years time Barack Obama will NOT be putting forward or supporting methods to prevent warming from "man made" CO2, that idea will have come to an end.
What has gone before us in the name of "climate science" will mean nothing, all we can hope is that "climate science" will change for the better and those who hold the keys for planning the Earths future will have a better understanding of how the Sun controls our world.......GR
I had to smile at this charity YouTube from Africa, most of us have been focused on helping starving people in Africa to take any notice that these guys have a real sense of humour when given the opportunity. The theme of sending radiators to Norway is a touch or pure genius....I bet way back in November 2012 when this YouTube was registered the authors had no idea as to the irony of what they had to say, who knows in years to come this YouTube may be put forward in a more serious context!

You too can donate your radiator and spread some warmth! http://www.africafornorway.com/ Twitter http://bit.ly/Y4NWPH On Spotify http://spoti.fi/Y4NMb8 and iTunes http://bit.ly/Ubik4A T-shirts are available! http://bit.ly/SI8bhG
Imagine if every person in Africa saw the "Africa for Norway" video and this was the only information they ever got about Norway. What would they think about Norway?
If we say Africa, what do you think about? Hunger, poverty, crime or AIDS? No wonder, because in fundraising campaigns and media that's mainly what you hear about.
