World faces hottest year ever, as El Ni

Quote From Source:

A combination of global warming and the El Ni?o weather system is set to make 2007 the warmest year on record with far-reaching consequences for the planet, one of Britain's leading climate experts has warned.

As the new year was ushered in with stormy conditions across the UK, the forecast for the next 12 months is of extreme global weather patterns which could bring drought to Indonesia and leave California under a deluge.

The warning, from Professor Phil Jones, director of the Climatic Research Unit at the University of East Anglia, was one of four sobering predictions from senior scientists and forecasters that 2007 will be a crucial year for determining the response to global warming and its effect on humanity.

  • Interesting to make such a prediction when the year hasn’t even started yet. Looks like an attempt to put something in the press. One thing El Nino guarantees is wild weather. What they are trying to do is set things up so global warming can take credit for the weather instead of what is really the driving force which is El Nino.

  • Well if California drowns and hogs all the rain again I will believe it. That just means another hot dry summer for Texas with already critically low lake levels. Although we have had some pretty decent rain lately to help offset the drought we are still about 17″ low of rainfall. Time will tell.

  • Hey shy, its an interesting site and I am glad you joined. I’m pretty opionated so you can just ignore me if you want lol. Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to some of your posts. :bouncing:

  • Fatalwishes I’m sure you’ll get my thoughts going with your opinions ;) As the name suggest I’m a little shy, I’m a science geek, but most of my studying has been on the human body. I can point out the duodenum for you. :D I’ve always loved to watch the weather, and ever since I was little got excited when it stormed, but haven’t really learned much about it until recently. Indy’s taught me some, and I can’t wait to learn more.

    And I know, I know Indy lol.

  • Well I have been here a couple of years and have learned much. I believe in time you will as well. There are many opinions and ideas floating around and you will probably form your own in time.

    LONDON – A resurgent El Nino and persistently high levels of greenhouse gases are likely to make 2007 the world’s hottest year ever recorded, Britain’s weather agency said Thursday.

    The Meteorological Office calculated a 60 percent probability that 2007 would break the record set in 1998, which was 1.20 degrees Fahrenheit over the long-term average.

    “This new information represents another warning that climate change is happening around the world,” agency consultant Katie Hopkins said in a statement.
