Met Office Are Censoring Critical Comments

The Met Office has obviously decided to join the BBC/Guardian, and have changed it from GLOBAL WARMING to GLOBAL HEATING, in a deliberate attempt to rack up the hysteria.

 

Yesterday, I objected to this, the Met Office don’t appreciate criticism and still have not released my comment from  moderation:

    IPCC obviously uses the wrong term:

    The corona virus is rapidly lowering carbon emissions esp. in world-wide transportation. But carbon emissions cannot be instantly stopped so the level of CO2 will continue to rise. And if the global heating crowd persists with the demands that we continue to rapidly lower them, so will the social and economic devastation the virus has already caused.

    So our ‘named storms’ Met Office agrees that this Thunbergian experiment has no effect on CO2 levels and thus global warming. So the AGW case collapses. Their climate change pages on the website have been a pack of lies for years.

    You asked a question that they don’t want to answer honestly, what do you expect!
    I think we know from the various opinions/pronouncements of MO heads, their general output, their actions etc. over the last years, exactly which way they dangle.

    On their extremes page, none of the Faversham (Aug)/Gravesend (Oct)/Cambridge Botanic Garden (Jul) records are annotated with a caution as to accuracy – speaks volumes.

    Like so many of our institutions – especially those connected with anything to do with weather or climate – they are paid up members of the wankerati.

    Questioning their pseudo-religion? How dare you!

    The morons at the BBC did not see the irony of the corporation not renewing their weather forecasting contract with the Met Office because their weather forecasts were becoming increasingly inaccurate. Why? Because the morons at the Met Office had factored in fictitious global warming in their £multi-million supercomputer programming. Drivel in, drivel out! You couldn’t make it up!

    Even the best of folk can be bought. The question isn’t the principle it’s the price, and when government put a £1 trillion bag of swag on the table all morals go out the window. We see that principle right here and now with our previously scrupulously honest Met Office.

    NB. Any government minister reading this who has a ‘climate change’ / ‘global warming’ / ‘global heating’ / ‘climate emergency’ / ‘OMG we’re all gonna die’ budget to blow, just give me a shout. I have a minimum retention fee of £25 million but for that I’ll bang any hysterical drum you fancy. For an extra £5 million I’ll glue myself to Boris Johnsons balls. Can’t say fairer than that. Call me anytime, guys!

    My late father worked as a meteorologist for his entire career. He started aged 18 in 1936, and spent most of WW2 forecasting for Bomber Command in Lincolnshire. After being de-mobbed in 1949 he worked for the marine division of the Met Office on converted corvettes stationed in the North Atlantic. He became concerned about the accuracy of the sea surface temperature measurements and wrote to the higher-ups expressing his concern. He realised that sea state, wind strength/direction, radiated heat from the ship etc. would affect the readings. He was rebuffed, and ended up transferring to the air division, where his talents in cold war Germany were better appreciated.
    Organisations will act to defend themselves once they reach a certain maturity. Status and politics (i.e. the appearance of things) take over from the underlying goals. The Met Office is no different.
    Add in the ‘green agenda’ and here we are.

    I’ve submitted the contrarian comment below on the Met Office article. It will be interesting to see if it survives moderation.

    The Keeling Curve has been rising steeply and at a slightly increasing rate since 1958. The UN IPCC asserts that this is because steadily-increasing human CO2 emissions have upset the alleged balance of natural global CO2 fluxes but they have no empirical proof of this. They rely on their unconvincing and disputed Bern Model which postulates that human emissions will remain in the atmosphere for hundreds of years, carefully referred to by Professor Betts as “the long term”.

    UN IPCC has doubly painted itself into a corner with its selective alarmist science: firstly that cutting emissions will make hardly any difference to atmospheric CO2 for hundreds of years, by which time fossil fuel reserves could well be exhausted anyway; and secondly because the massive global emissions cuts required by their exaggerating (and failing) climate models (45% by 2030 for starters) are technically and politically impossible given that current renewables technologies are totally incapable of supplanting fossil fuels and most greens abhor emissions-free nuclear power despite the alleged “existential threat” of CO2.

    An alternative reality is that the politically-driven establishment science is wrong and that atmospheric CO2 levels are in lockstep with global temperature in both the short-term (e.g. individual ENSO events) and the longer-term (e.g. the Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation) as shown by this graph of the derivative (rate of change) of Mauna Lao CO2 readings against sea surface temperatures: https://woodfortrees.org/plot/esrl-co2/derivative/mean:24/plot/hadsst3gl/offset:0.45/scale:0.22/from:1958

    partial quote from your link –
    “Although emissions are reducing this year, this does not mean the build-up of CO2 in the atmosphere will reverse – it will just be slightly slower” said Professor Richard Betts MBE, who leads the CO2 forecast production for the Met Office. “An analogy is filling a bath from a tap – it’s like we are turning down the tap, but because we are not turning off the tap completely, the water level is still rising”

    followed by a cartoon pic of said bath!!!

    is this aimed at kids,Professor Richard Betts MBE ?

    ps – notice at the end he says “A more in-depth feature on this topic is being hosted by Carbon Brief”

    who are they I wondered, well first up is –

    “The team
    Leo Hickman (@LeoHickman) is our director and editor.
    Leo previously worked for 16 years as a journalist, editor and author at the Guardian newspaper. Before joining Carbon Brief, he was WWF-UK’s chief advisor on climate change. In 2013, he was awarded an honorary doctorate by the University of Exeter in recognition of his journalism. His books include A Life Stripped Bare, The Final Call and Will Jellyfish Rule the World?”

    and how do they get money to fight the good fight & pay wages?

    from the link –
    “Funding
    We are grateful for the support of the European Climate Foundation, which provides our funding. In the spirit of transparency, we voluntarily declare that this funding totalled £551,217 for the financial year of 2018.”

    nice little earner for some.

    Iceagenow has a list of all the currently active volcanoes that are on the surface. There are quite a lot and there is a link between solar minimum and volcanic activity. Currently there have been 111 days with no sunspots equating to 78% which is more than last year’s 77% indicating that this is a deep solar minimum. And what about all the subsea volcanoes? Who knows how much CO2 they might be venting.

    Richard Betts was one of the first to use this term: https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2018/dec/13/global-heating-more-accurate-to-describe-risks-to-planet-says-key-scientist
