BBC Climate Check for June

July 12, 2022

By Paul Homewood


The latest BBC Climate Check fraud:





She starts by claiming that we have just had the third warmest June on record, even though none of the recognised global datasets, such as NOAA, GISS or HADCRUT, have yet been published for last month.

But according to the satellite datasets, which provide the most reliable and comprehensive measurement of global temperatures, it was only the 13th warmest June since 1980, and only 0.06C above the long term average:


Over all months, satellites show that that this year’s temperatures are not unusually high:


In true Pravda style, Sarah then goes on to highlight a small  handful of areas which experienced heatwaves last month – Japan, Death Valley, Slovenia, Croatia and parts of Italy and France.

For some reason, she does not mention all of the parts of the world that had below average temperatures!




She finishes by discussing computer models, which say temperatures in England could hit 40C in the next week:


She does go on to admit that these models are run thousands of times to simulate expected weather conditions, and often come up with ostensibly absurd and extreme numbers as this one.

In which case, why mention it at all, unless the object is to scare viewers?

    What’s with the screen showing an oversized 40C? They’re promoting their own warmist fantasies.

      Signs and portents of infernal heat oldbrew ……In the days of yore before the ‘computerized climate models ” it was animal entrails and the oracles of seers

    Apols if it’s a re-post …

    Can’t have Klaus’s infallibility challenged – now could we?

      It really has reached levels of absurd propganda. Just keep on lying and lying and telling everyone how scary the lies are.

    Thanks and well done Paul. I’ve just been over to Sarah’s twitter feed and seriously spammed it with links to this article. I fully expect to be blocked but darn this stuff So makes my blood boil. If anybody else wants to do it here is her twitter address: @SarahKLweather

    June wasn’t warm in Scotland but as long as the SE of England is warm then the UK is having a heat wave.

      It was most certainly not hot, nor even warm, in the SE (Kent, in my case) during June. On several occasions I had to light my stove – indeed, I even had it lit on a couple of nights in early July. They are simply fabricating these figures.

        Like last year, while it may have been quite sunny there has often been quite a stiff breeze that has taken the edge off the temperature and if you were going to sit outside of an evening you need some extra layers. Even at the start of this month, at a military show and a beer festival for the first weekend, when the sun went it you needed more than a t-shirt. She is talking complete rubbish but then it is the BBC.

    As I’ve said before, certainly for the UK, if it wasn’t for a few days of high temperatures caused by uses of hot air, Jubexwoukd have been pretty cool. Maybe CO2 is causing more frequent plumes but otherwise there’s absolutely no “warming” whatsoever. We are perhaps seeing an increase in “heat distribution inequality” which would be interesting but of course to study that you’d need to challenge the Climate Mullahs.

    It’s past time to sell off the Beeb. A few exemplary floggings might be a good idea too.

    Nothing but scare mongering. Designed to terrify people – especially children. I’ve written to the BBC complaints department. Of course it won’t make any difference. They are far to arrogant to take any notice.

    So, the world is getting catastrophically warmer. Maybe so, maybe not. NOAA says the global average temperture anomaly in 2021 was just plus 0.84°C, lower than it was in 2016.
    But where is any discussion of the actions the world should be taking to solve this climate emergency? More scary reports are not helpful if the problem is real and the models are “settled science”. Tell us, young lady. What should we do?

    European drought of 1540
    Everything began in northern Italy, with a winter that felt like a July. Not a single drop fell from October 1539 to early April 1540. Then the drought advanced north.July brought such an ember-like heat that churches made prayers while the Rhine, Elbe and Seine could be crossed on a dry foot. Where there was still water, the warm broth acquired a green colour, Dead fish floated belly-up. Water levels in Lake Constance sunk to record low levels, Lindau actually became connected to the mainland. Soon the surface water had completely evaporated, soils broke up, some dry cracks were so wide that a foot would fit into them.

    This year unprecedented?

    Never mind about heat, weren’t we told that our summers were going to get wetter. I see no evidence of that much less the 40C which we should expect.

    To combine wetter summers and 40C+ would make it like India. Tigers roaming free next?

    Every cloud or not has a silverining.

    Scotland’s infamous biting midges are struggling to survive in this year’s dry summer, say experts

    The temperatures in the week ahead change daily or even more frequently. The high of 95F has disappeared and I have spotted that when you go to the hourly for a particular day you find a different max temp to the 10 day forecast. So that Monday is supposed to be 92F but hour by hour the peak is only 90F. Don’t worry though, it will different tomorrow. Weather-forecast only do 3 hour blocks and then only 7 days ahead. I just hope their rain for Tue to Thurs holds true as we need it.

      weather-forecast have now got 99F for Tuesday – can they hit 3 figures with their next forecast??

    She should read this too, and give it some publicity: “The Antarctic continent has not warmed in the last seven decades, despite a monotonic increase in the atmospheric concentration of greenhouse gases”.

    There is a need for such productions to show compliance, perhaps. Using its tag as representative of the current narrative, there it stands, it can do no other. A sort of Luther standing against indulgence and the configuration of the Catholic Church. But, whereas Luther’s sermonising found sponsors and actually broke down barriers of freedom of worship, dragging so many out from under the shibboleths of an unopposable doctrine, the BBC acts as though Luther failed. The idea that there is one truth and therefore that must be supported with all the rigour at our disposal is the precise stance that the BBC has taken on Global Warming, actually instructing its producers to support the thesis to the extent of ignoring plausible and technocratic views which are ‘other’. They believe they cannot be called-out if they support the administration, put forward those regarded as elemental to our society in all works of life to support their stance. They do not represent fact, they are partial and discriminatory and then act offended when their approach is questioned. The BBC at some point in its history, started to take itself too seriously. The focus it has on being grave and in a continual state of agitation on subjects such as AGW stem from its other history when it was unopposed, the only form of representation, which placed great weight and caution upon it. Those days have gone and so should the BBC. The Corporation is an anachronism placing itself at the centre of governance with its own manifesto; it might even be dangerous, in that it has attracted so many radicals to its ranks that it is become socialist while declaring its neutrality.

    NOAA and GISS have now been published. Neither seem to show June as third warmest. NOAA has June 2022 exceeded by 2015, 2016, 2019, 2020 and 2021. GISS has a tie with 2020. The third place ranking is probably that of Copernicus, ERA5_2T series, where 2022 was exceeded by 2020 and 2021. (I’ve not bothered to look back beyond 2010, but the pause makes it unlikely any contenders would be found earlier)

  18. July 16, 2022 12:59 pm

    RSS has been available for some days, but I did not pick it up for a while due to a change in site layout. As with UAH we do need to look back further than 2010 for RSS. June 2022 is exceeded by 1998, 2010, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2019, 2020 and 2021 – so tenth warmest.

    Watch for future “warmest month” claims. Will Copernicus and GISS remain the go-to sources? (and Copernicus does have its early reporting date in its favour). Or will one of the other sources prove irresistable on occasion?
