Compiled by Dr Ole Humlum, Professor of Physical Geography at the University Centre in Svalbard (Norway), the new climate survey is in sharp contrast to the habitual alarmism of other reports that are mainly based on computer modelling and climate predictions.

Among the key findings of the survey are:

** While 2016 was one of the warmest years on record, global temperatures dropped back at the end of the year to levels prior to the strong 2015/16 El Niño. This fact suggests that much of the global 2015–16 temperature peak was caused by a one of the strongest El Niños on record.

** Since 2003, the global temperature estimate based on surface station measurements has consistently drifted away from the satellite-based estimate in a warm direction, and is now about 0.1◦C higher.

** Much of the heat given off during the 2015–16 El Niño appears to…

One wonders if David Cameron believes these storms were due to ‘Climate Change’?

The BBC reports [my emphasis]

Evidence of violent storms that destroyed a lost town known as Britain’s Atlantis has been uncovered.

The finds were uncovered off the coast of Dunwich, Suffolk – a small village which in the 11th Century was one of the largest towns in England.

The town was hit by a succession of storms in the 13th and 14th centuries and is now largely below the sea.

Researchers said sediment gathered from the cliffs independently corroborated the historical record.

Professor David Sear, of the University of Southampton, said Dunwich was hit by huge storms on an annual basis.

[They were] like the south coast storms of 2013-14, at least once a year for decades,” he said.
