The Global Warming Policy Foundation (GWPF) today criticised the World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) and the UK Met Office for their political intervention in the international negotiations currently taking place in Copenhagen.
The Met Office claims that preliminary temperature data for 2009 show that global temperatures continue to rise and that the argument that global warming has stopped is flawed.
According to the Met Office, the final temperature data for 2009 will notbe made available until early next year. A spokesperson, however, stated that the preliminary estimates were released by the Met Office in orderto influence the negotiations at the Copenhagen Summit.
“We are very concerned that both agencies have overstepped their scientific remits, which are supposed to provide governments with balanced advice and empirical data, and not to lobby politically,” Dr Benny Peiser, the Director of the GWPF said.
