Cor, What a Scorcher!

EU Referendum: We are supposed to take this seriously?

Next year in the UK is set to be one of the top-five warmest on record, according to the Met Office...Taking a quick reality break, courtesy of Steven Goddard over at Watts up with that?, we are reminded that the Met Office in April last year predicted that the 2008 summer would be "warmer than average" with "rainfall near or above average."...
Funny enough, all Met Office forecasts carry a health warning. We are told that, "Our long-range forecasts are proving useful to a range of people, such as emergency planners and the water industry, in order to help them plan ahead."

They are not, we are cautioned, "forecasts which can be used to plan a summer holiday or inform an outdoor event." But, it seems, they are good enough to predict global warming well into the next Century.

And we are supposed to take this seriously?

The global warming forecasters sound more and more like secondhand car dealers;" I know the wheels don't match, and yes the paint is scratched, and I'm sorry the seat is ripped and the inside smells a bit, but you just wait 'till you've got her out on the open road, Sir, lovely little car. Yes I know we had to jump start her, but that is only the once...."

One summer soon will be a scorcher and then it is game over for the deniers, if it isn't 2009 it may be 2010. It's what weather does. Thank goodness no one remembers 1975 or 1976 because if either of those summers happened now it would be compulsory carbon rationing under Czar Miliband for ever.


-3 this morning as I took the cover off the windscreen. Still if they are correct I'll be able to use make use of the pool this coming summer unlike 2008 and 2007.

It amuses me that in this subject you often hear so much about undue bias and influence from the 'Exxon' lobby, and yet we are supposed to uncritically accept this bollocks from the Met Office, whose jobs and self-importance clearly depend upon this warming narrative.

Also, I seem to remember being chided that weather and climate are not supposed to be the same thing, so what are the real purpose of these near season predictions we keep getting from the Met Office?

I think all they are doing, are taking a punt and hoping for random accuracy, it is the same technique used by another kind of charlatan, mediums and fortune tellers, you only need to be right once and your stock rises in the eyes of the public, the media already ensures that any analysis of their prvious mistakes are overlooked, nice job if you can get it.
