The following YouTube from the MetOffice was posted on the 12th March and yet news of this press release (Updates to HadCRUT global temperature dataset)was posted on the MetOffice web site on the 19th, must have taken a few more days to get the story right!!....GR
The global temperature dataset compiled by the Met Office and the University of East Anglia's Climatic Research Unit has been updated. Compiled from temperature observations obtained over land and sea, HadCRUT is used as a basis for a global temperature record going back to 1850. In this video, Peter Stott explains what the changes are.
Updated below with comments from Piers Corbyn EVER BEEN HAD?!
The Met Office and BBC have just their revised HADCRUT (Hadley Centre - Climate Research Unit of the University of Fraud in East Anglia) data set which of course like ALL previous revisions adjusts the facts in order to bolster the crumbling lie of man-made climate change. I posted a comment on the matter on WUWT:
Maurizio – Omnologos asks why cannot the Russians cool the past too? My understanding is that it has already been substantially cooled in Stalin's time especially in winters because the state handouts to the towns depended on how cold it was, and no meteorologist worth his life would report temperatures less cold than required to get enough to eat. What we should ask (if I am not mistaken) is what efforts have there been or can there be to put these Stalinised temperatures right? - making the past warmer! (oh-oh forbidden zone)
Today we have a similar problem. None of the GW fraudsters will do anything to negate the message of their gravy train.
I think we can safely conclude without fear of contradiction by any rational objective sentient being:-
1. The 'corrected' figures are fraud.
2. The temperature variations real or fraudulent are of no consequence to man, plant or beast, the temperature changes themselves, if real, about 0.5C in a century are not something that humans can even feel in a day.
The obsession with temperatures by all sides in this non-debate is insane, what changes weather and climate is jet stream shifts and other circulation pattern changes, and these control temperature rather than the other way around.
Of course - wait for it - solar activity (magnetic and particle) and lunar modulation thereof is the main controller of weather and climate change. This approach is now able to reliably forecast certain key major changes on the sun - eg Earth-facing coronal holes, and key extreme features of USA weather weeks and months ahead. For example see our WeatherAction USA, confirmed predictions of the present very warm center and E/SE USA alongside cold West and the preceding severe thunder, tornadoes and giant hail in lower mid-west around mid month - from (in this case) 3 weeks ahead to timing of a day or so:
Anybody or organisation which is serious about the weather needs these forecasts. However I am finding that those in authority forego what they need to fulfill their supposed 'duties' to protect the public and save lives, in order to preserve the fraudulent ideology of man-made climate change.
The preparation of a new global temperature dataset (HadCRUT4) is underway with the release a few weeks ago of CRUTEM4 – the University of East Anglia’s Climatic Research Unit’s updated land temperature data. The paper describing CRUTEM4 is here.
To compile the dataset the researchers looked at 5583 land stations and took data from 4842 of them. Much more data is included from the Arctic, especially the Russian Arctic.
The differences between the Northern and the Southern Hemisphere are apparent. Between 1901 – 2010 the NH warmed by 1.12 deg C and the SH by 0.84 deg C. CRUTEM4 also claims to have found an extra 0.1 deg C warming in the NH since 2001.
