Climate Sceptics Have Their Heads Stuck In The Cool Sand

AS he says: “There’s a news article just published at the Guardian reporting the announcement from the Met Office that ‘climate sceptics have their heads stuck in the sand’.”

Climate sceptics such as Nigel Lawson who argue that global warming has stopped have their “heads in the sand”, according to the UK’s Met Office. A recent dip in global temperatures is down to natural changes in weather systems, a new analysis shows, and does not alter the long-term warming trend. The office says average temperatures have continued their rising trend over the last decade, and that humans are to blame.In a statement published on its website, it says: “Anyone who thinks global warming has stopped has their head in the sand. “The evidence is clear, the long-term trend in global temperatures is rising, and humans are largely responsible for this rise. Global warming does not mean that each year will be warmer than the last.”

So what does it mean, then? That it’s not getting warmer?
