Hottest Month Evah? Don’t Bet On It!

One sector profiting from the global warming scam is the bookies.

It seems we only need to get a couple of days of sunshine and gullible punters are queuing up to throw their money away on ridiculously short odds that this will be “the hottest month evah”.

 

We saw this happen again at the start of last month,with the Telegraph reporting:

Nicola McGeady from bookmaker Coral added "After a miserable start to the month, punters’ faith in a hot British summer has been restored and we’re now taking bets on this May being the hottest one yet”.

It seems that many folks are so taken in by global warming propaganda that they believe record temperatures must be permanently around the corner.

And what did the month end up like?

 

According to provisional figures from the Met Office, “Cold and Wet”!

 

may-temp

 

This jolt of reality does not seem to have brought punters to their senses, as the Evening Standard report today:

Nicola McGeady, from Coral, said: "After a disappointing May, the odds suggest that summer is finally arriving. With sizzling temperatures expected to last throughout June, we think it could be the hottest in British history."

Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: "When it comes to June being an absolute scorcher, all bets are off. Temperatures of 30C or even more look well within reach as we look set to sizzle all month long."

Perhaps gullible punters should check with the Met Office before handing their money over.

Or if they want to check the form, they might discover that the hottest June was as long ago as 1940!

    “…After the rain, when the sun comes out,
    It will be the hottest day ever;
    Computer models will confirm that this is the case;
    These climate scientists are so very clever….”

    London: 14C yesterday and 15C today

    At least with the bookies you know it’s a gamble

    At least this gamblers would be betting their own money.
    The warmunistic governments are betting with their constituents money. But constituents can be worse than loan sharks when it comes to getting their cash back.

    I heard some fellow on Radio 4 (only in the background, honest) the other day, claiming that they were expecting this to be the hottest year evah. Doubtless we shall be reminded about a number of such “hottest months” when that claim comes to loudly trumpeted fruition, what, a week before Paris? A fortnight?

    Can we get a “not the warmest xxxxxxx” bet where xxxxxxxx is any month/year/day/lunchtime?

    Wait a minute. Can we get a bet that there will be No Warming for 1,2,3 … years as set by official data? If we cannot, or the odds are really low, then we can use that to say “the scam is up” not even the bookies believe in global warming?

    Looking forward to this year’s conference and seeing you all in Paris, we should go by foot not like The Prophets of Doom having a big carbon-footprint like the jets they will be riding.

    No worries….after they falsify the data, it will be the hottest ever….

    It makes perfect sense. People have been led to believe each day is warmer. Bookies a re encouraging me to bet on a hot June. Not much of a pay-off, but hey its a sure thing. Oodles people of place their bets – oh-oh – they lose. Bookies run laughing all the way to the bank to stash their loot.

    I may be just bathering here, but if the bookies actually falsified data, there would be hell on.
    However, if we consistanty asked for bets that went against AGW, like less tornadoes rather than more etc Could we not a) make money, and b) show that betting aagainst AGW worked because AGW is wrong.
    Somewhere here I read that Paul is an accountant, a better better I cannot think of. (repetition intended).

    The last COP in Copenhagen in November 2009 was smothered in snow. Maybe the same will happen in Paris. Fingers crossed!

    According to the BBC Look East Met man, Paul Hudson, May was cooler than average , wetter and less sunshine as well. So hindsight is a wonderful thing.

      Thanks, I seem to recall albedo, especially NH albedo being so, so, very significant?

      Hey, ho, onwards and upwards!

    Why show the maximum temperature in the graph rather than the average temperature?

    • June 4, 2015 9:02 am

      Means show a similar picture, though 1976 is slightly hotter than 1940 rather than the other way round.

        Meanwhile, down here in SE Australia, we are apparently having the coldest start to winter since 1931.

        Andy, I have been looking at the Antarctic using Nuschool and taking a snapshot each Day around this time which I have stored on Excel.
        Since the 30/05/2015 the area that I centred on about 67 South & 163 East has steadily cooled from -3.4 down to -20.7 today.
        It is looking very cold for Southern Aus and NZ.

        Yes, I agree that they say much the same thing in this case. My suggestion is that when one asserts which month was the “hottest” as opposed to the month with the hottest single temperature, the standard/accepted single measure of that is the average temperature. (of course no one measure tells the whole story but in the case, if one is to be chosen, it would be the mean/average). If something else is used, there will be people who will suspect that you are trying to hide something or mislead them. I don’t want that to happen because the assertion in your headline seems to be supported and well worth making.

      • June 5, 2015 5:55 pm

        I would not argue with that!

    It’s a sucker’s bet. It has no doubt, already been decided by NASA and NOAA that May was the “warmest evah.” There is also no doubt that the satellites will show no such thing.

    With so called scientists rewriting old data making it cooler with algorithms (except the last 15 or so years) and omitting temperature gauges from cold places because they are “unreliable” placing money on the hottest month/year ever is a sure bet !

    Juna and July have been miserably cold here in NZ
