Climate scientists respond to 'daft' media reports that global warming has 'stopped'
Release Date 08 January 2013
Dr Richard Allan, and Dr Ed Hawkins, of the University of Reading's Department of Meteorology, were among several leading climate scientists to denounce the misrepresentation of a Met Office report on global temperatures as proof that 'global warming is at a standstill'.
Dr Allan said: "Nothing in [the Met Office] data leads me to think that global warming due to human influence has stopped, or is irrelevant. It hasn't, and it isn't."
Dr Hawkins was interviewed for an article that appeared in the print edition of The Times.
