The Met Office is to stop publishing seasonal forecasts, after it came in for criticism for failing to predict extreme weather.
Explaining its decision, the Met Office released a statement which said: "By their nature, forecasts become less accurate the further out we look.
Uh ... So who said this then?
If emissions continue to grow at present rates, CO2 concentration in the atmosphere is likely to reach twice pre-industrial levels by around 2050. Unless we limit emissions, global temperature could rise as much as 7 °C above pre-industrial temperature by the end of the century and push many of the world’s great ecosystems (such as coral reefs and rainforests) to irreversible decline.
Oh. That would be the same fucking Met Office who can't fucking tell us what the fucking weather is going to do tomorrow?
However, it said its short-term forecasts are "extremely accurate".
Short term? As in: the next five minutes, perhaps?
