That obviously explains the heatwave we have had today!!

    The Sun must think the UK ends in the Midlands somewhere. My local forecast for tomorrow a.m. is 14C and !ight rain.

      Hey oldbrew… 14°C is what the 20th century average temperature is (NOAA). It is also what the average global temperature was back at the beginning of the last century. A climate emergency? 🙂

    At last some facts we can rely on. If only the pubs were open I could convince all the non believers.

    Human co2 emissions are so inconsequential as to make diddly squat difference to the annual co2 output of the planet from natural sources. Indeed, humanity would have to make even bigger cuts, on an annual basis, for years and years to come, to even register a tiny impact on global co2 emissions. None of which would change the weather. Never mind the climate or the amount of co2 that’s already in the atmosphere. The sooner people realise that co2 reduction is less about saving the polar bears (who are doing rather well, actually) and more about re-ordering society to some golden, globalist neo-Marxist nirvana, the better.

    Repost my previous post here then!

    Confirmation of extreme confirmation bias – it’s the evil cars stupid, a foregone conclusion, and we”ll show you no matter what. See how many absurd ‘scientific’ statements/logic fails you can spot in this.

    Of course that claimed reduction amounts to net zero (!) consequences to anyone or anything locally (apart from a tiny bit less plant fertilization in London parks) or globally climatically speaking, and yet represents massive economic damage .

    To be faithful to the GHG theory of AGW we have to relate global emissions to mean global temperature. Here is the science of it all.

    We are a little way from London here in central Washington State but the weather is decidedly cool:
    “Overnight low temperatures during the next few nights look to become cold enough to cause some concern for growers . . . ”

    Last weekend I planted 5 each of tomatoes and yellow squash. Happy with frost they are not.
    Likely it will not get that low here.

    London may be an anomaly — in more ways than one.

      Guys, have relatives living your way. One works in agriculture and tells me about the weather there east of the Cascades. Bit more predictable than the West of England where it never stays the same for long. Still it helps the green grass grow and the cows are happy. No climate emergency here.

    My tomatoes, squash and cucumbers etc have not been happy with the cold nights last week, around freezing, when they have evolved to enjoy the sort of warmer weather we are enjoying this week. Our main problem is that we need some rain, but not too much please.

      Expecting a hosepipe ban fairly soon. Here in Cheshire we need not just some rain , but a real soaking. What was it the Met Office in their wisdom kept saying “warmer equals wetter”. The weather to date this year in this part of the country so far resembles that of 1984 ,( the real 1984 , not Orwell’s version ) , when it was hot dry and sunny here from March to August.,

        There was enough rain in Jan/Feb to compensate for this extended dry period. Shame there are no new reservoirs to catch it all!

    This is indeed a warning about the future. A “green” world is a massively impoverished one.

    What a schizoprenogenic conundrum for our fanatical Greens: they want a clear atmosphere but what they get, hotter weather, is their warning.
    How will they wriggle out of that awkward combination?

      “How will they wriggle out of that awkward combination?”

      They won’t even try – they’ll stick their fingers in their ears and say “We can’t hear you, like we said you’re all going to die from climate change!”.

    As much as this was a tongue in cheek post it has a serious side in that, as we all know, had the same weather pattern existed with higher than normal CO2 levels the Greeniacs would be using it as a CC-rod with which to beat us.
