After offering a shocking admission several months ago that there has been no discernable global warming for 16 years, the UK Met Office recently followed that up with a revised 5 year prediction about global temperatures showing no increase above current levels. According to the Global Warming Policy Foundation, this is a considerable change from forecasts given in the past few years when a projected increase of nearly half a degree Celsius never materialized. If the global temperature standstill, seen from 1997 to the present, continues until at least 2017 this would mean a 20 year period of no significant global warming and would pose fundamental problems for climate models that predict hotter temperatures.
