Analysis Britain's Met Office has come under fire for two pieces of crystal-ball gazing involving global temperature and British rainfall. On Christmas Eve, the Met's temperature prediction for the UK was quietly revised downwards, and only merited a press release this week after physics blog Tallbloke's Talkshop noticed the change.The Christmas eve change was particularly interesting because they were trying to bury the news that they project that there will have been no warming for 20 years. Can't have that plastered across the tabloids.
And they also have a new projection that rainy days are getting more frequent in England, and somehow this causes droughts. Really, you can't make this sort of thing up.
