For teachers and students, here’s a list to key pages on the Met Office site that deal with climate change. I shall add similar lists of links for the Royal Society and NERC sites soon 😉

Met Office: Climate change

Met Office: Climate change myths – some of the common myths of climate change are explained by the Met Office Chief Scientist

  • Myth 1 – Ice core records show that changes in temperature drive changes in carbon dioxide, and it is not carbon dioxide that is driving the current warming
  • Myth 2 – Solar activity is the main driver of climate change
  • Myth 3 – There is less warming in the upper atmosphere than at the surface which disproves human-induced warming
  • Myth 4 – The intensity of cosmic rays changes climate
  • Myth 5 – Climate models are too complex and uncertain to provide useful projections of climate change
