More propaganda from the WMO and BBC. Who would have guessed there was another climate conference next week!
The year 2018 is on course to be the fourth warmest on record, according to the World Meteorological Organization.
It says that the global average temperature for the first 10 months of the year was nearly 1C above the levels between 1850-1900.
The State of the Climate report says that the 20 warmest years on record have been in the past 22 years, with the 2015-2018 making up the top four.
If the trend continues, the WMO says temperatures may rise by 3-5C by 2100.
The temperature rise for 2018 of 0.98C comes from five independently maintained global data sets
The BBC show this fake map, purportedly showing temperature anomalies:
In fact, the true coverage is much more sparse than the BBC pretend, as the NOAA map for October shows:
Yet the BBC pretends that we can deduce global temperatures to a hundredth of a degree. Pathetic!
Note the BBC’s comment about “pronounced warming in the Arctic”. There is zero evidence for this, as there is next to no thermometer coverage there.
The BBC version also colours in the oceans. However even the ARGO coverage is limited, and has in any event been heavily adjusted to match much less reliable data. In other words, the sea surface temperature numbers are effectively worthless.
No proper scientific organisation would announce figures for the year, before they have even got November’s numbers, never mind December. However, if they want to play that game, let’s look at the satellite data, which gives the most comprehensive analysis of global temperatures.
Assuming November and December remain on the average for the year, 2018 will come in the same as 2002, and well below the El Nino years of 1998, 2010, 2016 and 2017.
In other words, the famous pause, which so many alarmists have tried to deny, is well and truly still in existence.
Where the BBC gets its claim that if the trend continues, the WMO says temperatures may rise by 3-5C by 2100 is beyond comprehension.
Even the Met Office’s HADCRUT numbers only work out at a trend of 0.012C/yr since 1950, or an underwhelming 1.2C per century, a figure that would largely be beneficial to mankind.
This sort of warming is similar to the amount we have seen since the low point of the Little Ice Age in the 19thC. I have yet to see any convincing argument as to why we would be better off returning to those days!
The BBC article goes on to claim that extreme weather is on the increase because of global warming (accompanied, naturally, with pictures of bad weather – in this instance wildfires in Sweden). This, in spite of the fact that even the heavily biased IPCC has continually failed to prove that this is so.
And as usual, the partisan BBC print this banner at the end of the article:
