Worldwide Droughts, Storms & Floods–In 1929!

August 13, 2017

By Paul Homewood



Al Gore says droughts, storms and floods are due to global warming. Perhaps he should take a look at what happened in 1929. The following account is from the Lockhart Review and Oaklands Advertiser:






In fact, by the time this article was written, the drought in Britain had already ended, with four months of the most extreme rainfall seen in the country since 1910 beginning in October.

Met Office data shows that rainfall between January and September was far below any other year on record:



Then the heavens opened.



Of course, in those days it was just weather!

    OT but anyone remember the delusional Pen Hadlow?
    The idiot had intended to sail to the North Pole to highlight the effects of climate change.
    Unfortunately there’s 800 miles of solid ice in his way. (Sunday Times)
    Another “ship of fools”.

      Presently they have no concerns about ice. They are stuck in Nome harbour because of a raging northerly gale making the Bering Strait a touch unpalatable. BTW ‘stuck’ in Nome harbour, is an actual description, “Nome harbour’s deepest mooring offers 12 ft depth But last night N winds lowered water level leaving Bagheera (in deepest zone), embedded.”

      For “embedded” read “aground”!

        PS for true intrepids have a look at Caleb’s latest:-

        ARCTIC SEA ICE –Whaler Gales–

        “….For example, in 1871 forty ships sailed north of Bering Strait in June, and proceeded to hunt whale along the coast of Alaska nearly as far as Barrow during July and early August, but then the winds shifted and the ice came crushing south and trapped all but seven of the ships. 1219 lives were on the line…..

        Surely, rising sea level will lift them off? Or a miracle.

    “Al Gore says droughts, storms and floods are due to global warming.” Poor, deluded Al.

    No mention of ‘global warming’ in an earlier compendium of such events:,-Physical

    But Paul all this is just history, and as the Met Office has told you already actual history does not matter any more, ‘real’ meteorological data now comes from the virtual world of the model ‘data’.
    I wonder what the modeled 1939 world looks like?

    Meanwhile, unbeknownst to anyone, the Nazis were building Schwerer Gustav, the biggest piece of artillery ever built, to destroy France, then the World! The End Was Near!!!

    Lest we forget —

    America in longest warm spell since 1776; temperature line records a 25 year rise – New York Times 3/27/1933

    “Gaffers who claim that winters were harder when they were boys are quite right…weather men have no doubt that the world at least for the time being is growing warmer.” – Time Magazine Jan. 2 1939

    More than eighteen years of observing the fluctuations of Arctic weather conditions in the fifty-eight Soviet scientific stations in the Far North….lead Russian meteorologists to a forecast of warmer winters and hotter summers for the North and South Poles. They believe that the earth is entering a new cycle of warmer weather. A series of curious discoveries have been announced in support of this theory. It has been noted that year by year, for the past two decades, the fringe of the Polar icepack has been creeping northward in the Barents Sea. As compared with the year 1900, the total ice surface of this body of water has decreased by twenty per cent. Various expeditions have discovered that warmth-loving species of fish have migrated in great shoals to waters farther north than they had ever been seen before..Our generation is living in a period when remarkable changes are taking place almost everywhere throughout the world. – Examiner April 12, 1939

    A mysterious warming of the climate is slowly manifesting itself in the Arctic, engendering a “serious international problem,” – New York Times – May 30, 1947

    Greenland’s polar climate has moderated so consistently that communities of hunters have evolved into fishing villages. Sea mammals, vanishing from the west coast, have been replaced by codfish and other fish species in the area’s southern waters. – New York Times August 29, 1954

    After a week of discussions on the causes of climate change, an assembly of specialists from several continents seems to have reached unanimous agreement on only one point: it is getting colder. – New York Times – January 30, 1961

    Like an outrigger canoe riding before a huge comber, the earth with its inhabitants is caught on the downslope of an immense climatic wave that is plunging us toward another Ice Age. – Los Angeles Times December 23, 1962

    “8 Amazing Things Uncovered by Melting Glaciers and Ice – Claire Cock-Starkey”

    A bit of light hearted diversion. Not sure if it can be taken seriously given the name of the author.

    I can recall the note of triumphalism as the ‘Today Programme’ debunked virtually everything that Mr Lawson had had to say, in his recent interview. That, to my knowledge, Mr Lawson is but a private individual voicing an opinion, set against the BBC, which has the defining stance on such matters as AGW, then to select one source for their rebuttal and then a famous name (famous for other matters), for the BBC, spells charlatanism. A stitch-up. This issue has raised questions about Mr Lawson’s probity and raises the question as to why he should submit himself for such interviews (is it a question of stardom and the drug it becomes) when we have experts and analysers like Paul here who have chapter and verse but find difficulty in establishing a platform.

    So there are two rebukes: one that Mr Lawson should stop proposing himself as a spokesperson as he is that of the BBC which has a tendency to deal in emotion rather than fact and therefore plays the BBC’s game; the second, is that the BBC were shameful in even suggesting that the argument was won by Harribin and in that way acted as an adjudicator but, as ‘we’ know, one of unreliable provenance. If it is that the world is to be stitched-up by a national broadcaster that doesn’t announce to the world that it is a not a government media outlet but a supposedly neutral source, then billions of people will come to believe that it is authority rather than what we know as a source of supposition. An oblique and faulted organisation that seems to be a political entity in its own right broadcasting the babble of the Metropolitan jungle.

    In future, if asked to state an opinion, Mr Lawson should demur and, instead, offer-up Paul for some adult and drama free analytical fact. This interview and the smug response was the perfect ambush. In it’s sly way it was able to propose that all matter Global Warming had been proven and that the ‘leading’apostate had been shamed. In this way arguments are won and in this underhand and devious way centrist forces and manipulators get their way. Now science is an ass and AGW is a BBC, totally owned, truth.
