Met Office Confirm Imogen Due To Jet Stream Moving South

February 8, 2016

When Slingo is wheeled out in a few weeks time to blame this winter’s storms on global warming, just remember this tweet from the Met Office.

As I have been pointing out all winter, this shift is connected to a large pool of unusually cold water in the North Atlantic.

    Is that graphic made using a trillion gigabyte super computer? 😉

    The N Atlantic is indeed cool, but is this unusual? Is this not connected to the onset of the cold phase of the AMO?

    This is highly relevant here:

    I have been drawing attention to wavier more equatorward jet stream tracks for years.

    The CO2 theory proposed more poleward less wavy jets.

    Way back in the mists of time humans understood that nature had cycles and rhythms that these were both mysterious in origin, and often obvious in their effect. Back then even the humblest of clairvoyants and weather diviners understood that these varying cycles ignored the flow of human generations but impacted them greatly.

    How time have changed but the prognostication of weather prophets have not. Woe, and more woe is forecast. Now however the blame for weather changing is on modern man’s production of an innocent life-giving gas – CO2, and the assumed effects it has on nature and the weather.
    In these modern times of ‘settled science’ maybe our weather seers, prophets and oracles should investigate those older and wiser ways. Would the outcome from examining the ancient runes or the Ouija boards be any worse than the code of virtualized chicken entrails that run on the Met Office computers? I think not.
    Therefore my message to Dame Slingo is –

    “History doesn’t repeat itself but it often rhymes,”
    Attributed to Mark Twain, a science skeptic, who was reputed to have said it.

    I don’t suppose the pool of cool waters could be down to undersea volcanic venting ceasing for a while in that area? Perchance?
