2021 Was The Coldest Year In England Since 2013

January 2, 2022

By Paul Homewood



While the BBC/Met Office have been busy hyping a solitary mild day, they have been strangely silent about the news that Central England has just had its coolest year since 2013:



Last year continues the standstill in average temperatures, which have now been stable for two decades, following the rapid rise during the 1990s.

2021 was actually cooler than six years in the 18th and 19th C:

    Please stop confusing the Met Office and the BBC with real data.

    Was a time when our genius Guvmint brushed off full years saying that “Climate” must be 30 years plus.

    I predict that we will get “The hottest half hour ever” before 2022 is out.

    Which will at least save some fuel for a strategically placed jet at Heathrow.

    To quote Richard Feynman “If the facts do not fit the theory, then the theory is wrong”

      We’ve moved on. Now they ‘adjust’ the facts.

    The CET has been running since 1659, 362 years. Thus with a completely flat climate the chance that a given year would have a day-month that was the hottest occurrence of that day-month is 63.4%.

    The calculation is: the probability that a day is then the hottest ever is 1/362, so the probability that it is not is 1 – 1/362 = 361/362, and raise that to the power of 365, giving 0.36433 the probability of no hottest day in the year.

    It’s hard to get excited about a warm NYD.

    Given the current soaring gas prices I welcome the warmth as it means my heating is barely on. And my 2021 gas usage concurs with it being a cold year as it has been the highest since my first full year here in 2016. There is no WFH inflation in the use other than a bit more home cooking as the CH periods were not extended. The morning was moved a bit later.

    No-one can remember the 1700s and 1800s. Climate hysteria requires living memory only, otherwise there is nothing to be scared and frantic about and everyone likes being scared.

    I’ll bet the Met Office won’t report on this one – snow in Florida: never say never when it comes to weather. With a 40-degree temperature drop overnight, the Florida Panhandle went from beach weather to snow falling from the sky.

    The Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office recorded snow falling at the Lowe’s on Beal Parkway in Fort Walton Beach early Monday morning.

    “Well, how’s this for a temperature change?” the sheriff’s office wrote on Facebook. From 75 degrees at 3 in the afternoon (2 Jan) to snow at 3 a.m. (3 Jan)” (FOX Weather)

    As we say on this website “that’s just weather!”
