2008 on track to be coolest year this century
______________________________




21 Aug 08- Data from the UK Met Office shows that temperatures in the first half of the year have been more than 0.1 Celsius cooler than any year since 2000.

Scientists at the World Meteorological Organization have also suggested that 2008 will turn out to be cooler than the last few years.

"The big thing that's been happening this year is La Nina, which has lowered global temperatures somewhat," said John Kennedy, climate monitoring and research scientist at the Met Office's Hadley Centre.

La Nina cools waters in the eastern Pacific Ocean, but its effects are felt around the globe.

          Funny, isn’t it, how anytime it cools it’s part of a natural
          cycle, but anytime it warms, it’s caused by humans.

Earlier this year, one group of researchers suggested that another natural cycle, the Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation, was likely to hold temperatures steady for about the next decade, before reversing direction and allowing a renewed warming.
