It’s becoming more likely that a key global temperature limit will be reached in one of the next five years.

A major study says by 2025 there’s a 40% chance of at least one year being 1.5C hotter than the pre-industrial level.

That’s the lower of two temperature limits set by the Paris Agreement on climate change.

The conclusion comes in a report published by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO).

The analysis is based on modelling by the UK Met Office and climate researchers in 10 countries including the US and China.

Quite what a parched lake has to do with the article is beyond me. After all, David Shukman must know that the IPCC has consistently said that droughts are not getting worse. Surely the BBC would not be trying to deceive readers?

The trouble for alarmists such as Shukman is that when we hit that magic target nobody will notice the slightest difference.

Remember that the IPCC warned that all sorts of climatic disasters would befall us if the 1.5C target was breached. But if we did not have climate scientists to tell us how much the world ahs warmed, a thoroughly meaningless concept anyway, nobody would be any the wiser.

Meanwhile, around the world, everybody will still be getting just the same weather as they have always had.

And then, the alarmists might start to regret their scaremongering.

Once bitten, twice shy, as they say.
