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

In Germanyinclines one month to the end, which one would not soon forget. At least in the north and east of the country, he could be in the final assessment of the coldest and snowiest especially since the beginning of the detailed records about 100 years ago. In the Brandenburg village Coschen in the night of Sunday, the thermometer dropped to minus 19 degrees at all - it was the coldest place in Germany. Even though it was milder in the south, the first three weeks were still over Germany so far about three and a half degrees colder than the long-term average of this month, and the few days until its end not change anything essential, especially since the meteorologists until much higher temperatures expected Easter. In calculating the total meteorological winter (December to February), the measurements go from March, a longer even, but were also the three winter months together about half a degree colder than "normal." Dark anyway.
Ornithologists have reported that migratory birds coming from the south turned back. Others, equipped with sharper senses, remained the same for longer than usual in the Mediterranean and moved her brood. The flowering is delayed, and less during the mild days formed earlier this month crocus carpet in the parks disappeared for weeks under 20 cm thick snow cover. The construction industry and other industries fear delays, losses and other cost burdens. The tenant association to Hamburgexpects that after the winter for a 70 square meter apartment in the next heating bill, a supplement of 100 euros will be paid, in public buildings, the taxpayer debited accordingly. Several times had dozens of flights, such as to and from Frankfurt, canceled due to heavy snow, for a March highly unusual.

Britain's freezing weather could continue until mid-April, with no sign of summer in sight and the temperatures set to dip to -3C over the coming days.
The South West may start to get warmer after Easter, but it could take until mid-April for better weather elsewhere, the Met Office said. The news comes as it emerged an office worker was found dead after collapsing in the snow on the way home from a pub - in the second death of its kind within hours.

The UK Government’s chief scientist has warned time delays in the climate system means that greenhouse gas emissions in the atmosphere now will determine the weather the world experiences for the next 25 years. The head of the Global Warming Policy Foundation (GWPF), however, said he is sceptical about anyone being able to predict what the weather would be like in the future.
Sir John Beddington said climate change is one of the things he has been trying to bring to the Government’s attention but believes it is not talked about enough. He also noted the climate and weather we’re experiencing now comes from greenhouse gases that were in the atmosphere 25 years ago.
He said the international community’s failure to agree binding targets for cutting carbon emissions meant problems were being stored up for the future. He told BBC Radio 4: “They may reach agreement and they may start to reduce greenhouse gases in the next five years, or it may be a little longer. But they are still climbing and when that increase is reversed, we will be left with the weather and the climate for the next 25 years from whenever that happens.”

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.

London, 25 March: On behalf of the Global Warming Policy Foundation, Lord Lawson has accepted an offer by Sir Paul Nurse, the President of the Royal Society, who has offered to arrange a meeting between the GWPF and climate scientists.
In a recent letter to Lord Lawson, the GWPF chairman, Sir Paul suggested that the Foundation needed more mainstream and expert climate science advice and offered that the Royal Society “would be happy to put the GWPF in touch with people who can offer the Foundation informed scientific advice.”
In his response, Lord Lawson writes that he is “happy to accept your offer to arrange a meeting and look forward to hearing from you about this.”
“I hope this marks the start of a more productive dialogue with the Royal Society,” said Dr Benny Peiser, the Director of the GWPF.
