See below for Met Office 5 Day forecast and see how difficult it is for them to predict beyond this period - Piers Corbyn with his 25 years experience has issued a Public Warning Public Warning: This Weeks Major R5+ Solar Event To Produce Additional Stratospheric Warming and I have included his forecast below issued at the END OF DECEMBER!

Global warming is not causing temperatures to rise as quickly as previously feared, the Met Office has claimed.
Today the weather agency released its revised forecast which was quickly seized upon by climate change skeptics who used the data to claim global warming has stopped.
In turn, the scientific community accused them of ignoring the weight of evidence showing that global warming is a reality, and accused the Met Office of 'falling short' of the standards expected of it.
The UK's national weather service recently changed its projections for climate change through to 2017, known as 'decadal forecasting', to show a marked difference to the rate at which the world's temperature will climb.

Global average temperature is expected to remain between 0.28 °C and 0.59 °C (90% confidence range) above the long-term (1971-2000) average during the period 2013-2017, with values most likely to be about 0.43 °C higher than average (see blue curves in the Figure 1 below).
The warmest year in the 160-year Met Office Hadley Centre global temperature record in 1998, with a temperature of 0.40°C above long-term average. The forecast of continued global warming is largely driven by increasing levels of greenhouse gases.

It looks like I missed the following report from Charlotte Meredith in the Daily Express on 22nd November in what looks like an update originally posted in the Daily Express on the 15th December 2009 - Front Page News (left image)...This time the article is called "100 reasons why "Climate Change" is Natural" instead of 100 reasons why "Global Warming" is Natural
HERE are the 100 reasons, released in a dossier issued by the European Foundation, why climate change is natural and not man-made:
1) There is “no real scientific proof” that the current warming is caused by the rise of greenhouse gases from man’s activity.
2) Man-made carbon dioxide emissions throughout human history constitute less than 0.00022 percent of the total naturally emitted from the mantle of the earth during geological history.
3) Warmer periods of the Earth’s history came around 800 years before rises in CO2 levels.

This story is huge. America’s prestigious National Academy of Sciences (NAS) and related government bodies found no greenhouse effect in Earth’s atmosphere. Evidence shows the U.S. government held the smoking gun all along – a fresh examination of an overlooked science report proves America’s brightest and best had shown the White House that the greenhouse gas effect was not real and of no scientific significance since 1979 or earlier.
Unwittingly, the U.S. National Academy of Sciences (NAS), the National Academy of Engineering, the Institute of Medicine, and the National Research Council have all dealt climate alarm it’s biggest ever blow. Their killer evidence had been hidden in plain sight for 33 years until uncovered by a team of maverick climate researchers.
All those global warming skeptic Christmas wishes have come at once wrapped in the NAS document, ‘Carbon Dioxide and Climate: A Scientific Assessment,‘ a joint publication from 1979 commissioned on behalf of the U.S. government. This amazing story ties in perfectly with all the big climate news chatter this past week about the revelations from the leaked draft report (AR5) of the UN’s International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
The leaked IPCC draft admits it has had to ratchet down yet again the climate sensitivity it expects to find from carbon dioxide (CO2). No wonder the IPCC is today having to retreat over CO2 sensitivity – the trace gas can’t be any factor in our climate if there is no greenhouse gas effect to be begin with!

On the 2nd December I posted the latest R5 forecast from Piers Corbyn with two weather scenarios for the USA and Europe. The period in question was for the 5th - 7th December, and today there is news of a M7.4 Earthquake in Japan that has followed a huge Filament Eruption on the surface of the Sun.
We have seen Solar Climate Change (Solar events on the Sun that make changes to the Earth) repeat several times before and no doubt will see it again in the future and yet the media, and this sadly includes Anthony Watts at WUWT, have put "Solar Climate Change" into the "crack pot" area.
As regular followers at this site have seen before there ARE solar episodes that make changes to the Earth's surface and climate that CAN be forecast in ADVANCE by Piers Corbyn and yet there is no funding available to research these events...WHY?
The question then is this...... who is the "real" denier of these events being related, us or the media (inc. WUWT)?
Well done to Piers Corbyn for a correct R5 forecast...more to follow soon.

Is the "late" Tropical Storm "Bopha" a result of the "last gasp" solar flare from AR1618? - [SpaceWeather.com]
It seems a long time ago that I mentioned Will the Sun repeat itself in the NEXT 10 Days? and at last this period has ended with sunspot number AR1618 coming to an end five/six day overdue.
Piers Corbyn had expected this area of the Sun to erupt during his R5 period 22nd - 23rd November. I can only guess that as a result of this delay to AR1618, the rain/floods in the UK lasted a few days longer then even WeatherAction anticipated. The low pressure system also followed a lower track, although having seen Piers Corbyn original hand drawn chart for Europe for the 22/23 November he DID foresee a very low pressure area coming to the UK several weeks in advance but not as far South as it did, and as mention, not for as long.
Oh, and yes we have another "rare" weather event,this time from Italy, this was less then a day after AR1618 erupted.....

NASA ImageLaboratory on another world: This schematic shows the range of instruments Curiosity uses on its mission
#Rover team make finding with instrument designed to identity signs of life
#'Earthshaking' discovery will be fully announced early next month
Nasa's Mars Curiosity rover has reportedly made a major discovery on the Red Planet - but scientists are keeping quiet about what it is.
The finding was made by the six-wheeled rover's Sample Analysis at Mars (SAM) instrument in the Rocknest area of the Gale Crate, close to where the rover touched down. SAM is Curiosity's on-board chemistry lab and is able to take a sample of Martian rock, soil or air and find out what it is made of.
Except scientists are refusing to reveal its latest finding, merely saying that it is earthshaking. 'This data is gonna be one for the history books. It's looking really good,' said John Grotzinger, chief scientist in the Curiosity team, in an interview with NPR.
Mr Grotzinger would not be drawn on what the discovery actually was. He told NPR that his team won't be ready to talk about the discovery for several weeks. Most importantly, it is capable of identifying organic compounds - carbon containing substances that could indicate life.

It wouldn’t be the first time civil disobedience inciter and Data-Dr. James Hansen is apprehended for breaking the law.
What follows is not crazy – it’s what we used to call “civic duty” by caring citizens.
This is my open call to the NYPD, 26th Precinct, 520 West 126th Street, New York, NY 10027, Tel. (212) 678-1311, webpage here.
This is the precinct responsible for NASA GISS, Columbia University.
"I am officially reporting, to the NYC police, NASA-GISS scientist James Hansen, for manipulating and falsifying U.S. Government temperature data, with the likely intent to defraud U.S. citizens.
He has been caught red-handed by Steven Goddard and other experts, not just once but on multiple occasions. All witnesses are urged to notify the authorities and to provide evidence of Hansen’s activity so that the authorities can properly investigate what plainly appears as criminal activity in broad daylight and, as duty calls, to render protection to the public they have sworn to serve.
