World temperatures have remained almost stagnant in the last two decades, new figures have revealed.
The figures on global temperatures were published by Environment Minister Gregory Barker in a parliamentary answer to Tory MP Anne Main.
The figures were unveiled as an environmental guru and maverick scientist admitted that he may have been ‘alarmist’ about climate change.
James Lovelock, who warned that billions would die before the end of this century and only the Arctic would be fit for human habitation, said: ‘The problem is we don’t know what the climate is doing. We thought we knew 20 years ago. That led to some alarmist books – mine included – because it looked clear-cut, but it hasn’t happened.’

The thing that annoys me about this whole mess is that there are legitimate environmental concerns that urgently need to be addressed and they are getting stifled by this bloody stupid debate.
I fear that when this whole mess is over, all we will be left with is a precedence that any environmental action invoked by a government will just end up as another tax grab.
Seriously....when was the last time you heard a Minister of Parliament call the house to address the growing garbage flotilla's in the Pacific and Atlantic oceans?

Whatever happened to Greenpeace? We used to hear about them several times a year on the news going after major environmental issues, such as attacking the Rainbow Warrior, etc, but now we hardly ever hear about them.

I love it when ignorant people make up headlines like this and then try to pass them off as the truth. Must be easy to stay in the cave and stare at the wall.
As more and more scientific evidence is published that debunks global warming, the enforced consensus is ending.
The Royal Society, Britain's premier scientific institution -- whose previous president declared that "the debate on climate change is over" -- "is being forced to review its statements on climate change after a rebellion by members who question mankind's contribution to rising temperatures. ...
The society has been accused by 43 of its Fellows of refusing to accept dissenting views on climate change and exaggerating the degree of certainty that man-made emissions are the main cause."
Letter warns 'green' position endangering 'reputation of science itself'
Forty-nine highly respected former NASA astronauts, engineers and scientists are fighting back against efforts by top executives to use the federal agency to promote global warming alarmism.
There is no scientific proof that man is helping or causing global warming.

Wouldn't 0.29C or any increase for that matter, be considered warming? If you said there was a 0.29 decrease then it would not be considered warming.
