What 17-year pause? On their new "My Climate and Me" site, the Met Office uses a fraudulent graph as the basis of their entire global warming sales pitch

Key Facts | My Climate & Me
Scientific understanding has come on leaps and bounds in recent years. And no wonder, climate change has been the focus for 1000s of climate scientists globally for 20-30 years now. The Met Office alone has over 200 climate scientists, and they’re equipped with world-leading computing and software technology, processing vast amounts of data collected globally on a daily basis.

We can’t ignore the fact that climate and the factors that affect it are highly complex, and there are some aspects of it that aren’t fully understood. Nevertheless, there’s a large body of evidence at the core of climate science that is highly robust. Let’s start by looking at this.
Fact: Global temperatures are increasing
Global temperature data provides clear evidence of this. The long term trend is one of global temperatures increasing. Since 1850 global temperature has risen by 0.8°C. 2010 was the hottest year globally on record.

...Natural climate cycles can add to the long-term warming trend or slow it down as we’ve seen in recent years, but they’re not significant enough to explain it
Our Mission | My Climate & Me
We think people deserve a clearer understanding of what’s going on with their climate. My Climate & Me is dedicated to explaining the truth about climate change science. It’s your go-to resource for an unbiased account of the scientific evidence around climate change, straight from the scientists themselves.
