Flaming June? Not Here!

July 4, 2019

By Paul Homewood



Meanwhile back in the UK, daytime temperatures have been average at best:


As for rainfall, despite hysterical claims a week or two ago, there have been several wetter Junes on record, notably 1912:

    At least we’ll probably be spared the now ubiquitous “hottest day of the year so far” headlines on the BBC until next year, which seems to convince many journalists that the climate is changing. Does the Australian ABC report on the coldest day of the year so far?

    I think it depends on your perspective. So far we’ve had a mild winter up here in Highlands.

    Joking apart at what point do the population begin to realise what they’re being told is simply at odds with their experience?

      For as long as they believe that their experience is not relevant and are convinced by all (=97%) of the climate experts that it will only get worse unless they repent of their evil ways.

      If you know less than nothing about something then you are almost obliged to listen to those with letters after their name who apparently do or who you believe can be trusted to tell you the truth — like the BBC or David Attenborough or “Scientists”. Even if they tell you these things are happening NOW!! In the Arctic or the Antarctic or the Himalayas, perhaps but it will be our turn tomorrow or next year or some time anyway. Unless we all do something to stop it. NOW. Just in case.

      How many times have you heard the idea that temperatures in the US were higher in the 1930s pooh-poohed because the US is “only 2% of the earth’s surface”? How often are we not told that the oceans are more important than the land in climate terms, that they cover 70% of the earth’s surface and the temperature “coverage” is in relative terms virtually non-existent.

      In effect, every single piece of climate data — accurate or not — is cherry-picked because it has to be. So the sheeple (which most of the time includes most of us, to be fair) get fed what the various establishments, political, academic, and media, want us to have.

        “…you are almost obliged to listen…”

        Humans are programmed to listen to ‘alarm calls.’ That is why they are so gullible; they can easily ‘believe in three or four impossible things before breakfast!’

        In the fable of ‘The Boy Who Cried “Wolf!”‘ the villagers learned to ignore the mischievous urchin – but that was only because they had to turn-out each time to combat the wolf, and wearied of this ‘cost.’

        However, I bet the townies, in Capital City, were still saying,

        ‘A journalist writes that there are an awful lot of wolves in the countryside. He spoke to a boy who was a real expert! The villagers must do something to keep them away – from us!’

        The fable, of course, goes on to say that a wolf did appear, and part of the moral is that the villagers were essentially wrong-headed. But, in real life, the villagers would simply have found a better class of wolf-boy to employ!

        So, how can we (meaning people who move easily enough – mentally – between town and village) sack our wolf-boy ‘scientists’ and also sack
        the journalists and establishment figures, of little brain but low cunning, who listen to the tales, embellish them, and make an easy living from it all?
        Especially when they masquerade so well as wise old heads?

        I am afraid it can not be done.

        It is all like a tickle in the throat. Once it starts you know you are in for it. The cold-in-the-head can not be stopped, gargle as you might, until it has run its whole disgusting course.

    Not exactly flaming in the English Lake District either, and I believe Norway southern part is somewhat frigid.

    Give me a break Paul. 1912 is outside living memory so it doesn’t count.

    With all this distinctly average weather, in the UK, Northern Europe, North America and many other places it seems the Met Offices in many places are going into IT’S GOING TO BE THE HOTTEST DAY EVER IN BACKOFBEYOND ON THE WATER TOMORROW, then when it isn’t the hottest, coldest wettest windiest some other place is chosen and little or no mention is made of the previous prediction. This leaves many people, especially politicians, under the impression that extreme climate events are increasing in frequency when in fact the reverse is the case.

      “…under the impression…”

      The Availability Heuristic strikes again.

    I didn’t think it was so very hot EVAH! last year, sure we had some nice weather in June, unusually so, for that gorgeously capricious month. Well, me? I just don’t care what it does in June, frosts, wet, hot, cool or very wet, not so hot and cold – June means summer whatevah da wevvah.

    And this year, the summer has been gloriously wetish to average and that’s what all English summers mostly are, ‘evidence’ of warming, no, nothing to report at all – but then we (here) all know that. Huh, ‘all’ except the civil serpents in the Hadley Centre and the westminster EU rubber stamp shop all glued up on alarmists that they irredeemably are.

    btw, I love it when the wet office boys advertizing their alarmist advocacy on screen, at the boys bu88ering corporation, and painful acknowledgement, in great disappointment miserably aver,

    “temperatures about, or, lower than average for this time of year”

    Aye, if you’ll excuse the oxymoron exactly right, and it speaks thus, a HOT drift up from the Azores or Saharan dust plume via Europe, is, the unusual ie not the norm – why can’t they get that into their thick heads, a rhetorical question you must understand.

    The mean temperature in South Wales has been particularly mean this year.
    I was watching the film No Highway In The Sky 1951 starring James Stewart and Marlene Dietrich when I was surprised to come across a prototype Greta Thunberg in the shape of the daughter Elspeth Honey played by Janette Scott. Her dad played by Stewert being a scientist has brought his daughter to be very scientific in the way she speaks though it is obvious her real world knowledge is lacking. Not only does she look like Greta
    Elspeth Honey

    She talks like her. But you have to watch the film to hear the similarity.
