Pathetic and predictable: BBC Blames Singapore Turbulence Incident on Climate Change

A British passenger has died from a heart attack following a bout of very severe air turbulence on a Singapore Airlines flight from London to Singapore which had to divert to Bangkok. Over 30 people were injured mainly, it seems, because they were not wearing their seatbelts at the time of the terrifying and dangerous incident.

Aviation is always at risk of unexpected turbulence. Nevertheless, the BBC has the story and, unsurprisingly, according to its website the cause of all our woes – climate change – is the smoking gun:

Briton Andrew Davis described “awful screaming and what sounded like a thud” in the first few seconds of the incident.

“The thing I remember the most is seeing objects and things flying through the air.

“I was covered in coffee. It was incredibly severe turbulence,” he told BBC 5 Live.

Another passenger said the aircraft suddenly started “tilting up” and “shaking”.

“I started bracing for what was happening, and very suddenly there was a very dramatic drop so everyone seated and not wearing a seatbelt was launched immediately into the ceiling,” 28-year-old student Dzafran Azmir told Reuters.

“Some people hit their heads on the baggage cabins overhead and dented it, they hit the places where lights and masks are and broke straight through it,” he added.

Thai authorities have despatched ambulances and emergency teams to Suvarnabhumi Airport.

Singapore’s Transport Minister Chee Hong Tat said the Government would provide assistance to the passengers and their families.

“I am deeply saddened to learn about the incident on board Singapore Airlines flight SQ321 from London Heathrow to Singapore,” he posted in a statement on Facebook.

The BBC News report provides a link to another BBC page called ‘Flight turbulence increasing as planet heats up‘ and, lest anyone miss the point, the report ends:

Research has shown that climate change will make severe turbulence more likely in the future.

No link is provided to that ‘research’ since nebulous references to ‘research’ are a prime weapon in climate alarmism.

Radio 4’s World at One bulletin today on the incident also featured the claim that “research” suggests turbulence has increased due to climate change.

Readers of this site were directed a year ago by Chris Morrison, the Daily Sceptic’s Environment Editor, to another smoking gun: the Reading University Professor responsible for deliberately exaggerating the effects of climate change, whose claims were roundly debunked by Chris on the spot.

The BBC’s report is worth reading in full if only to see what indolent journalism looks like.
