A change of climate at the BBC, but not in the Anglican church

Filed under: environment — David Jenkins @ 4:56 pm

That bastion of meteorological political correctness, the BBC is backpedalling on climate change:

What happened to global warming?

This headline may come as a bit of a surprise, so too might that fact that the warmest year recorded globally was not in 2008 or 2007, but in 1998.

But it is true. For the last 11 years we have not observed any increase in global temperatures.

And our climate models did not forecast it, even though man-made carbon dioxide, the gas thought to be responsible for warming our planet, has continued to rise.

Mere facts are insufficient to deter the pontificating padres of the Anglican Church, though, who continue to decry the “moral consequences of climate change”. And all this as, in Canada, icicles begin to form in the nostril hairs of trendy bishops who can no longer afford to heat the buildings from which they have purged their flocks in increasingly enthusiastic spasms of zealous heathenism.
