Red Hot In Germany!

July 26, 2022

By Paul Homewood

It’s not only British media that is suing weather forecasts to promote climate alarm – the Germans are at it too!

    The German nudge unit at work. Did you see, Communist, Professor Susan Michie, Director of the Centre for Behaviour Change at University College London, will chair the WHO’s Technical Advisory Group (TAG) on Behavioural Insights and Sciences for Health. So more lies to heap on us!

      That’ll be Comrade Mitchie who sold a Picasso to the Qataris for £50 million
      Is easy to be a communist when you’re loaded.

      Susan Michie sounds like she might be Scottish so that explains a lot. Not racist, cos I am Scottish and I know my people so well.

    Somebody certainly should be suing the Weather Forecasters.
    For their blatant agit prop and lack both of honesty & competence.

    Unfortunately, it won’t be the British Media. That’s nailed on.

      Michie epitomises the long march through the institutions.

    I prefer the hairstyle on the hotter one, though.

    Every trick in the book…… but wait, I thought we are being repeatedly told that the cyense is settled? Why do they need to use non-scientific props and gimmicks, unless…………….

    “It’s not only British media that is suing weather forecasts to promote climate alarm ….”

    Your fingers didn’t quite coordinate with your brain as you typed that, Paul! 😉

    [An issue I frequently suffer.]

      Ah yes, it should be ‘usurping’…

      I took it that Paul was using the term “suing” as a subtle reference to the antics of Susan Michie.
      “Suing” now being a new term for “sexing up” etc by the Nudge Unit.

      Should be “It’s not only British media that are using weather forecasts to promote climate alarm…”

    Constant drizzle of propaganda such that it would cause a great consternation if it were to be challenged. The majority would be outraged. Goebbels would be proud.

    That weapons grade moron Rowlatt was on the Beeb news the other night with a map of Europe that he’d scribbled on with his special red crayon. Funnily enough, he left off Eastern Europe as he would have had to get his blue crayon from out of his left nostril.

    Pt 5 of John Dee’s (retired senior NHS clinical statistician) analysis of airport temps 1965-2022 at like latitude Heathrow and Yeovilton:

      I like John’s site and I would like to provide him with some interesting results on glacial retreat data and modelling I have done that would reduce the warming post-1960s in HadCRUT4. Based on his cLOG document I think this might interest him.

      However, there is no way to contact him on his blog and it appears you can only comment if you pay. Not something I can afford to do, so if you know of a way to get in touch with him please let me know (possibly via our host here if we don’t want to publicly reveal emails).



      • July 27, 2022 5:31 pm

        I have an email address for him but I do not know how to contact our host.

      • July 27, 2022 7:41 pm

        I’m not paid up either, but you could try commenting on his Facebook page, or sending a message that way:
        This is a group site originally set up to review C19 date, but John Dee is also posting the substack climate posts there. Good luck!

    Invest heavily in tomato sauce futures and it was quite a lot hotter 5 years ago. What is the fuss about ?

  11. July 26, 2022 6:45 pm

    I do believe this one is FAKENEWS
    Factcheckers have been raging a kind of war against these double photos
    and half the time they’ve been winning
    For this one the National news uses the green format and the local use red format

    There are two types of news in Germany: Tagesschau (8 p.m.) and Tagesthemen (around 10 p.m.).
    While Tagesthemen have had a more neutral themed weather map before,
    Tagesschau always used a similar map. So stop spreading fake news.

    Global Warming PR guy Leo Hickman already put up a thread a few days ago sneering ‘look at these thick sceptics’
    I am really surprise no one on this thread is aware of it.

      What about the BBC 2012/2022 one?

      • July 27, 2022 12:36 pm

        That is what aboutery,
        cos the point is this particular tale has been exposed as FakeNews.

        I already mentioned that some other of the before after map examples are true
        “half the time they’ve been winning”

      • July 29, 2022 10:02 pm

        @ThinkingScientist just a we should be careful about shouting gotcha !
        the alarmists shouting “gotcha those side by side graphs are false” should also be careful
        Aidan McGiven Met Office Meteorologist rushed in with a big Twitter thread saying the pic on the right was a PHOTOSHOPPED

        But some hours later admitted it was NOT a photoshop

        …more on the new thread ”
        BBC Weather Forecasters Don’t Like The Truth!”

      I suspect that if you go back far enough you will find that the Germans used normal maps. It is a question of when they started using the hyped ones and was it because they thought the colour might be helpful or for propaganda.

    • ThinkingScientist permalink
      July 27, 2022 3:59 pm

      No Stewgreen its not. Its a legitimate question because your post specifically referred to the German one and said about half were fake. So is the BBC one fake or real?

      I am not surprised I haven’t heard because (a) I don’t give a flying f*uk about Twitter and (b) even if I did I certainly wouldn’t be following a climate propagandist like Leo Hickman.

      Perhaps he got the Guardian to make these up, who knows?

      • July 27, 2022 6:29 pm

        That’s the whole point about whataboutery
        yes of course the “what about” raises a legitimate question, but it is an attempt to shift and move on to a different argument.

        I don’t follow Leo Hickman either
        but I’m not going to live in a bubbleword like libmob do

        Is the BBC one part of the 50% that don’t stand up to scrutiny ?
        As ever its up to people to extraordinary claims to check the facts first themselves.

    BTW WGAP just put up a video

    I put that picture on my Facebook page a couple of weeks ago – yesterday Facebook admin flagged it as apparently Independent Fact checkers have decided there’s ‘Missing Context’.
    I’m still waiting to hear what the alleged missing context is, I’m not holding my breath though!

    Scumbag censors at Facebook are panicking again. I posted those two images with nothing about ‘climate change’ added. Look at their response in the link below.

    Their ‘missing context’ claim is complete BS. What ‘context’? Says who? Since when was ‘context’ a matter for Facebook? The pictures speak for themselves, where similar temperatures were presented on standard green maps but are now presented on a furiously hot-looking red map. Hot, hot, hot!

    These people are effectively social media fraudsters, shutting down any opinion that embarrasses them or their AGW mantra.

    This level of interference is NOT normal and NOT acceptable.

    • July 27, 2022 12:38 pm

      Cheshire I already commented why it is fakenews
      Sceptics should not be running around reposting extraordinary claims without doing a bit of a check
      … cos that is the typical hysterical behaviour of the alarmists or libmob

    • July 27, 2022 12:53 pm

      Cheshire, your Facebook link doesn’t work for me
      I guess it only works for you, and is customised to your account

      • Cheshire Red permalink
        July 27, 2022 5:11 pm

        Ah. It’s giving me a page long lecture with no opportunity to respond or challenge their ‘factcheck’. Imagine that, eh?

  15. July 27, 2022 1:01 pm

    Has anyone explored the Facebook “workers’ re-education page” that you get taken too if you click the Climate alert logo it prominently attaches to people’s posts if they dare to post about climate ?

  16. July 27, 2022 1:41 pm

    Fact Checking = fact-spinning
    Look at the AFP non-impartial spin

    AFP Fact Check 19th July *6 Likes*
    Climate-change **deniers ** on social media
    have a viral way of spreading scepticism during a heatwave
    : by publishing weather maps *out of context*
    to imply forecasters are exaggerating the impact of global warming.

  17. July 28, 2022 8:22 pm

    Here’s your weather map pointer, Paul.
