Follow up to the Green con no.1

Ed:  Probably obvious to some, but the Daily Mail has been getting assigned a reputation for making false statements in the climate debate.  This accusation should be very disconcerting (if provably true) and very infomrative (if provably false). 

Either way, we will need to watch the daily mail.co.uk very closely from now on and I'll provide aletrnative views to their articles where I can in order to provide some sort of balance


Scientists set straight the latest Mail on Sunday climate contortion

Why does the Mail on Sunday claim that recent measurements of global temperature provide "irrefutable evidence that official predictions of global climate warming have been catastrophically flawed"? The scientists we spoke to don't think so.
The Mail on Sunday article is the latest in series of pieces by journalist and climate skeptic campaigner David Rose, who has previously penned articles claiming that climate change stopped 16 years ago.
Rose presents a graph comparing the latest projections of temperature rise from climate models with actual temperature measurements. The headline claims because the graph shows the two differ over the last decade, there is "hard proof that global warming forecasts … were wrong all along".
