Lubos Motl has some analysis of the Year 2007 global average temperature results.
2007 was loudly forecasted to surpass 1998 as the hottest year on record. Amongst the media outlets running the story were:
AP & Foxnews
The New York Times
The New York Sun
The Washington Post
China People Daily
Here is the small sample of Global Warming propaganda from ABC Australia:
This year is set to be the hottest on record worldwide due to global warming and the El Nino weather phenomenon, Britain’s Meteorological Office says.
Whoa! Grab your bags and head for the hills! We are all going to die !
Well, the Satellite data for the lower troposphere is in and it shows 2007 to be the coldest year this century and nowhere near as hot as 1998. Instead of being the hottest year on record, it turned out to be the 9th hottest. In fact 2007 was a whopping 0.41 degrees cooler than 1998 and 0.12 degrees cooler than 2006. Even 1995 was hotter!
Will the media apologise for running the Global Warming activist propaganda? Nope, I didn’t think so.
