From James Randerson in the UK Guardian:
This year is set to be the coolest since 2000 according to the UK Met office. The global average for 2008 should come in close to 14.3C which is 0.14C below the average temperature for 2001-7.
Anthony Watts (wattsupwiththat.com) gives examples of failed Met Office forecasts and concludes: The message in the UK Met office press releases is that, since there is such poor skill with seasonal weather prediction, multi-decadal climate prediction must be a much less precise and accurate science than we heard promoted by the IPCC and in theclimate change press releases given out by the UK Met Office and others.
