British Met Office Debunks Climate Contrarians

The British Met office, in an online piece authored by Prof. John Mitchell OBE FRS, Director of Climate Science at the Met Office, have acted to debunk some of the main myths propagated by the likes of Durkin's Channel Four Swindle "documentary".

Says the site -

The Met Office Hadley Centre was opened in the early 1990s and is a world-leading climate centre. It has over 150 world-renowned climate experts who draw from the expertise of the supercomputer modellers at the Met Office.

Somewhat more impressive than Durkin's collection of retired scientists, mavericks, professional contrarians and rightist political axe-grinders.

Cuttingly, Professor Mitchell says:

Recent coverage has questioned the influence of humans on the climate. While the arguments used might have been regarded as genuine areas of sceptical enquiry 20 years ago, further observed warming and advances in climate science render these out of touch.
