Record Warmth In January (1916!)
By Paul Homewood
There was an awful lot of fuss a month ago, when it was announced that December 2015 was the warmest on record in the UK. Even though the previous record had stood since 1934, it did not stop the usual suspects from screaming global warming.
Well they’re a lot quieter this month, and not just because last month only ranks tied 21st warmest since 1910.
Much more notable, however, is the fact that the warmest January on record was in 1916. I don’t remember there being much global warming around then!
