John Hirst – Models Predicted Temperatures Would Stop Rising!
Posted by Jeff Id on January 7, 2010
I received this link from L. Gardy LaRoche by email. A reporter from the BBC takes offense with John Hirst getting a bonus for predicting global warming and a mild winter right before the huge cold snap we’re having. The Met office is actually famous for predicting every year will be the warmest on record with hot summers and mild winters, it’s so bad that the only prediction which holds any water is the prediction that the Met office will predict warm weather next year as well.
So this reporter, armed with a few inconvenient facts, goes after John Hurst until at the end John states flat out that Met models predicted that temperatures would flatten in recent years. That’s all great, except that they keep predicting warmest year ever and keep missing the mark. If the models predicted flattening of temperatures, why would they keep predicting warming?
The clip is about 6 minutes with the interesting bit at the end:
So which is it, is MET not being honest about predictions or are they not being honest about the models?
