Slowdown in global surface temperature rise

This week the Science Media Centre, London, convened a press briefing to look at why global surface temperature averages have not risen in the last 10-15 years. An accompanying briefing note was published. In front of a team of journalists five senior climate scientists addressed questions such as: Have climate models failed to predict a fundamental shift in the warming trend?  Is this an important change that climate science must account for, or just a short-term irrelevance?  What are the other indicators of a warming world showing us? Media coverage from the event: The BBC; The Independent; The Telegraph; The mail online The climate scientists present included: Prof Rowan Sutton, Director of Climate Research, National Centre for Atmospheric Science, University of Reading; Dr Peter Stott, Head of Climate Monitoring and Attribution, Met Office Hadley Centre; Prof Piers Forster, Professor of Physical Climate Change, University of Leeds; Dr Richard P. Allan, Reader in Climate Science, University of Reading; Prof Stephen Belcher, Head of Met Office Hadley Centre.
