    Harrabin repeated the denialists’ ‘no warming since 1998′ mantra several times during his piece. That oft-repeated phrase is what will stick in listeners’ minds.

    He failed to remind us that the last time CO2 levels were 400ppm, Arctic temperatures were around 8 degrees Celsius hotter than today ( http://neven1.typepad.com/blog/2013/05/when-the-arctic-was-8-c-warmer.html )

    He also downplayed the issue of ocean warming, almost dismissing it.

    A good summary of why why the ‘no warming since 1998’ meme is wrong can be found here: http://www.skepticalscience.com/global-warming-stopped-in-1998-intermediate.htm

    Thanks for doing what I at least (and I suspect many others) would love to be able to do. That is complain about the BBC’s appalling attitude to ‘balance’. You did it in an articulate and evidence based manner which many complainant’s seem unable to do.

    Thanks again.
