Can anybody tell me why the Met Office would want to show a picture of floods as a headline to their report on research into Africa’s changing climate?

    Looks like they’ve already decided on the conclusions and just need the £millions to torture the data to fit.

    Hang on, err, let me think, err

    I know, it’s got hotter.

    I need to lay down now.

    To imply floods in Africa are ‘normal’?

    What makes them think a new ‘Model Process’ for Africa will be any better than the’ broken arrow’ ones that they run on everything else ?

    Who’s paying for it ?

      IMPALA is part of a £20 million UK government-backed initiative entitled Future Climate for Africa (FCFA)

    Does that mean they admit the models they currently use are as much use as chicken bones and dice at forecasting then!

    Afraid not.

    That’s the manmade Great Crocodile Tears Lake designed by Michael Mann and Phil Jones, and funded by WWF, IPCC & Greenpeace.

    Someone needs to force these clowns to sit through an introductory Paleobotany course. Climate is always in the process of changing and Africa is not an exception.

    As for models….which have never been right since the Michael Mann’s of the world began tinkering with them in the later 1960’s as a result of computers, we don’t know enough about almost everything to put enough critical data into the model to get anything credible back.

    Nobody has ever bothered about Africa,whether we starve here of famine or getting killed in conflicts…so why bother now?In Southern Africa we are in the grip of a terrible drought at the moment…which isn’t uncommon.
