BBC notices it isn't warming
Global temperatures this year will be lower than in 2007 due to the cooling effect of the La Nina current in the Pacific, UN meteorologists have said.
This would mean global temperatures have not risen since 1998, prompting some to question climate change theory.
A minority of scientists question whether this means global warming has peaked and the earth has proved more resilient to greenhouse gases than predicted.
But Mr Jarraud insisted this was not the case and noted that 1998 temperatures would still be well above average for the century.
"When you look at climate change you should not look at any particular year," he said. "You should look at trends over a pretty long period and the trend of temperature globally is still very much indicative of warming...what is important for climate change is that the trend is up."
....Experts have also forecast a record high temperature within five years.
Yep, there is a very long term trend upwards but it doesn't correlate let alone appear to have causation with CO2 levels, that is the important news.
