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.
The World Meteorological Organisation's secretary-general, Michel Jarraud, told the BBC it was likely that La Nina would continue into the summer.
This would mean global temperatures have not risen since 1998, prompting some to question climate change theory.
OK so THIS year's La Nina, means that global temperatures have not risen since 1998???
And the alarmists wonder why people are not taken in by the global warming hysteria???
the article continues:
But experts have also forecast a record high temperature within five years.
OK so this means "Yeah OK, we KNOW the earth is now cooling, BUT the temperature WILL rise again at some point in the future, so keep paying your carbon taxes and let us monitor all your activities, just in case you are trying to destroy the planet, you viral human scum!"
The only problem with what these "weather forecasters" is saying is, the fact that this season's La Nina started AFTER the cooling started.
According to the NASA Aqua satellite system and the Argo sub-sea system of global temperature monitoring, the cooling has been happening for some years. Other data contradicts this, and shows the year to 2007 as the second warmest year since 1998. The problem is, we are not getting a total accurate picture of global temperature yet, and much of the data measured has been measured in places different to earlier years and these locations may be in warmer places, regardless of global warming, thus the figures could be misleading.
