Comrade Harrabin Is Late To The Party

You read it here first!!!





To which there is a rather suitable reply!





Of course, as I revealed a few days ago, October 1903 was a good deal wetter with 218mm of rain, compared with the “so called” record rainfall of 145mm last month.


The Met Office knew this all along, but if it had not been for me nobody else would have done.


Perhaps the good comrade might care to turn his attention next to Dec 1876, and all the other Decembers which were also wetter. That’s assuming the BBC don’t sack him in the meantime for gross negligence and incompetence.

    Harrabin appears tombe a bit behind the times. Perhaps send him off for reschooling… Nope, that was only for the unwashed other side that relies on data like provided here.

    BBC sack him for gross negligence and incompetence? Very unlikely, it might cause people to ask about the rest of his activities, and then go on to query the approach taken by the BBC on other aspects of Global Warming Hysteria.

    I wish you could review Canada and US meteorlogical data as well!

    Gross negligence and incompetence is the BBC Culture. Harrabin fits perfectly. He’s among like minds. They can’t remove one rotten apple without drawing attention to the rest of the petrifying crop. I recommend the RUC treatment. Decapitate, including that ridiculous Trust, and replace the lower orders with people of integrity and professionalism.

    I can’t read all of Harrabin’s original tweet.
    Which dataset is he referring to, HadUKP?
    If so, October 1903 was the wettest month overall on record but as far as December is concerned, there are 20 wetter in HadUKP, including five years in the 19th century.
    If it is a question of the wettest month overall, there isn’t a great deal of difference between 1910 and 1903 but I don’t think it’s valid to compare December with October.
    I suppose it’s good that Harrabin is questioning the M.O. propaganda, if that is what he is doing.

      He is referring to Mark McCarthy who has said the Met Office is trying to extend the UK digital records back before 1910

        Having become increasingly sceptical of the Met Office’s motives, I can’t help but speculate that they will still carry on using the 1910 cut-off when it suits them.

    This is and example of why I am sceptical, I used to believe in AGW but now doubt and cynicism have taken over.

    It is in our nature as human beings to believe that our actions affect the weather, every human civilisation has wrongly believed this, it is now our turn!

      The basis of all the great financial CONs is
      1.) it has to be plausible ….
      2.) so large & promoted by ‘Top people’ it MUST / HAS to be true !

    December 2015 now routinely touted as wettest and warmest on record. I see the wettest claim is nonsense, but of the claim that it’s the warmest?
