What tends to happens in smaller countries is that if it is possible to get some money out of the deal (such as a study grant), then we become environmentalists, but if it costs money, we don't.

If they temp had have dropped significantly over the last 15 years I might start to doubt that climate change was real. As it is using the most comprehensive dataset (the MET) it has contined to rise at a reduced rate. The energy imbalance at the top of the atmosphere has remained constant and the deep oceans have measurably warmed.

As I said, this is not significant in the grand scheme of things (thats not an opinion thats a statistical fact).

The question is why has heat flow been absorbed by the oceans over the past decade or so?  That answer to that is the answer to a whole lot of warming-related problems.

In catastrophe theory one learns that often the situation is that nothing much bad happens until you pass a threshold and then the building collapses.

I think the carbon is doing what it does naturally.  The idea as I get it is that the extra warming is not of the whole planet but selective. and first it is warming the deep oceans so we don't notice as much.

You think about that and its even scarier, since once the deep oceans get as warm as they are going to get, then it will be a little late to try to cool them.

Global warming has been on "pause" for 15 years but will speed up again and is still a real threat, Met Office scientists have warned.

Surface temperatures around the world have not increased on average since the late 1990s, causing some sceptics to suggest that climate change is not happening as quickly as experts predict.

But in a set of three new reports, the Met Office claims that global warming has been disguised in recent years by the oceans, which have absorbed greater amounts of heat and prevented us from noticing the difference at surface level.

The whole "global warming" scheme is too valuable as a lever for politicians to push through new taxes and programs to increase government to let it drop. They`d still claim "global warming" if the White House was covered by a mile-thick ice sheet.

Meanwhile, of course, the real issues are studiously ignored.

You might be right, but it is a bit much for me to believe  since I don't see where the politicians have gotten much if anything out of it all, and the dangers we appear to be in make for a very serious business if you are wrong.
