The Met Office & The Civil Service Code
By Paul Homewood
The Met Office has claimed that December 2015 was the wettest month since records began in 1910. As we know, they have records dating back to 1766 which totally demolish this claim.
Of course, the Met Office statement has this footnote, which covers its back.
However, there is something called the Civil Service Code, which states:
How “truthful and open” is it to make no mention at all of the longer running rainfall series for England & Wales, which confirms that the wettest December was in 1876, and the wettest calendar month was October 1903?
These facts are clearly an embarrassment to Julia Slingo and her colleagues, who have been determined to convince us that global warming is leading to more extremely wet weather. But “integrity” means putting aside such personal interests and providing both government and public with all of the information, and not just the bits that suit them.
