Clive Best: Any AGW signal in UK temperature data ? – Nope ! « Tallbloke's Talkshop
The Central England Temperature data is the longest continuous instrument measurements in the world from 1650 – 2012 [1]. Do they show evidence of Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW)? Likewise detailed UK station temperature measurements since 1940 are available through Hadcrut4 dataset[2]. Do these show recent enhanced temperature rises due ever increasing CO2 levels? The answer to both questions is a definitive nope! There is no AGW signal present in either dataset - see figure 1.
Even warmists deserve something at Xmas, so here’s my present list.

Mikey Mann – A new hockey stick, to replace his old one which is well and truly broken.
Homer Hansen – A violin, so he can get more practice at fiddling.
Phil Jones – A can of whitewash for the next inquiry.
Katharine Hayhoe – A history book.
David Viner – A snow shovel.
New forecast for global warming : Voice of Russia
In its annual forecast for next year, the UK’s Met Office predicts that global temperatures are forecast to be 0.57C above the long-term average next year, making 2013 one of the warmest years on record. This means that the next few decades may see a spate of catastrophic changes take place on Earth, something that some experts say will be caused by a cold spell-turned-new glacial age rather than global warming. They argue that the cold snap may begin already in 2014.
