Temperature records dating back more than 150 years are to be re-examined by the Met Office because public belief in global warming has plummeted.
The re-analysis, which was approved at a conference in Turkey this week, comes after the climate change email scandal which dealt a severe blow to the credibility of environmental science.
The Met Office says that the review is ‘timely’ and insists it does not expect to come to a different conclusion about the progress of climate change.
But the reassessment, which will take an international group of experts three years to complete, will be seen as a tacit admission that previous reports have been tainted by the association with the University of East Anglia’s controversial Climatic Research Unit.
Since the leak of more than 1,000 emails and documents from the unit in November, belief in global warming has fallen from 41 per cent to 26 per cent.
