I have Hank to “thank” for pointing me towards http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/sci/tech/8299079.stm, which was presumably written to prove that the BBC is no longer sane or indeed terribly interested in reality.
Rather than that, you’re better off with something like RC: A warming pause?.
Why they write “And our climate models did not forecast it” when what they really mean is “climate models did forecast this but we paid no attention and / or were too stupid to understand, and still are” is… well, entirely obvious when I think about it :-)
But the true test of an article about global warming that doesn’t have anything useful to say is: does it quote Piers Corbyn? And I’m happy to say this one passes with flying colours: But one solar scientist Piers Corbyn from Weatheraction, a company specialising in long range weather forecasting, disagrees. He claims that solar charged particles impact us far more than is currently accepted, so much so he says that they are almost entirely responsible for what happens to global temperatures. He is so excited by what he has discovered that he plans to tell the international scientific community at a conference in London at the end of the month. If proved correct, this could revolutionise the whole subject. I can hardly wait.
[Update: Nurture doesn’t much like it either.
Uupdate: this gets funnier. The Grauniad has the story: this turns out just to have been some piece of toss written by Paul Hudson on his personal beeb-blog then promoted by some dumb news editor to a real story, in the process medaciously promoting him to “climate correspondent, BBC News”, which he isn’t. Meanwhile, PH is repeating his stupidity. PH seems to be new to the blogosphere – those are his only two posts -W]
