Goodness, this stuff just gets dumber by the day.
Updated records of global temperatures stretching back more than 160 years confirm the world has warmed by 0.75 celsius since 1900, scientists said today.
The new version of a Met Office ‘temperature series’ dating back to 1850 adds information from weather stations in Africa and from Canada and Russia, where the Arctic is warming more quickly.
The full data behind the study is to be available, to prevent a repeat of the ‘Climategate’ scandal in which scientists were accused of ‘editing’ climate data to suit their theories of global warming.
The report comes in the wake of a release from Nasa’s GRACE gravity-measuring satellite which shows the ‘deforming’ effect melting ice has had on Earth’s gravity.
And they come up with this image which looks like a flattened party balloon. Are they for real? But surely we’ll see this popping up as how the world will soon look if we don’t do something!
