Global warming:   British Met office now resorting to outright lies

There has been much discussion in recent days about the new decadal forecast of global temperatures, sneaked out by the UK Met Office on Christmas Eve, and which shows flatlining temperatures instead of the the rapidly increasing ones previously forecast.

However, on studying the current forecast (at top), and comparing it with the previous version (below) issued in December 2011, I noticed a bit of jiggery pokery. Have a look and see if you can spot it.

The white curves are previous predictions, as the narrative explains. In the latest version, this line heads downwards from around 2005 to today's levels. In other words, they seem to be giving the impression that previous predictions anticipated the drop in temperatures in the last couple of years.

Yet look at the Dec 2011 version, and you can see that this is absolutely not what they were predicting then. On the contrary, they were forecasting a significant increase in temperatures throughout the period.

It would appear that the Met have deliberately fabricated a new version of their Dec 2011 forecast, in order to avoid making the original version look too ridiculous.

Is this really what "science" has come down to?

I was learning this in high school sciences, at least when I looked at higher sciences, then in college. The only difference is the pace. A year to rewrite their own work as if their real work didn't exist? Impressive.

The internet really does need to be... regulated. It doesn't miss a Freudian or other slip or forget a thing, one way or the other. Odd, it's mostly Democrats, the left, and RHINOs who wish it to go away. *cough* Orin Hatch *cough* SOPA, et. al. *cough*
