'Proof' eh?

Popped across to the Torygraph and found this bit of propaganda on the front page;
Met Office report: global warming evidence is 'unmistakable'
Two reasons to treat with suspicion;
1) The report comes from the UK Met Office whose record on predicting weather is something of a national joke in the UK.
2) The article is written by Louise Gray.
Dr Stott said the sceptics can no longer question the land surface temperature as other records also show global warming.
Apart from him failing to notice that the temperature record is based upon a less than comprehensive base data set. One example of which is the corrected 'Arctic' temperatures are based on very few recording stations. Tell me again, why do more recent temperature records, especially those from semi urban locations need 'correcting' upwards?

Yes, yes, I'm sure those producing said report will tell us it's all too complicated for common mortal man to comprehend. You don't need to be a genius to spot a fiddle, and I think there's more fiddling going on with this climate business than in the string section of the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra.

Regarding Louise Gray and Geoffrey Lean, what the hell are a pair of rampant warmista's doing writing for the right of centre Torygraph? Surely their natural habitat is the left of centre Grauniad?

Have you read the comments section. There are only two commenters who agree with AGW. All the rest are convinced that it is a con.

I may be mistaken but if memory serves Louise Gray was their medical correspondent and ended up writing what now passes for science reporting at The Teletubbygraph when the science correspondent went. Geoffrey Lean has always struck me as being insufficiently vociferous a warming believer for the Graun, which actually says more about them than it does about him.
