How the Met Office and BBC Try to Fool Us All

As we all shiver in the autumnal weather during what is meant to be summer and some of us have even turned our central heating back on or continued using our winter duvets, there is one certainty – in a few weeks time, the good folk at Met Office and the BBC will tell us that we’ve just had the “warmest June on record”. After all, the Met Office and the BBC made the same claim about appalling April and miserable May. In fact, the weather has been so wet that there is a risk of a potato shortage later this year. So, what will be intriguing will be the mathematical contortions the Met Office and BBC will use to justify their preposterous nonsense:

  • Will they have the gall to say that June in the U.K. was the warmest on record even though everybody else knows it wasn’t?
  • Or will the Met Office and the BBC choose somewhere which had a bit of decent weather – perhaps Greece or Spain or India – to justify their climate catastrophism?
  • Or will they instead try to fob us off by claiming that, although June in the U.K. was a disaster weatherwise, global temperatures (if such a thing can even be measured) were at record levels?

If the Met Office and BBC can’t find any evidence for their ‘global boiling’ narrative, will they instead just choose somewhere where there have been a couple of floods or a typhoon and use that as proof that anthropogenic climate change is causing more extreme weather – even though there has been no increase in extreme weather and the number of deaths from extreme weather has fallen by over 90% over the last hundred years while the world’s population has tripled?

For decades the Met Office and its most enthusiastic cheerleader, the BBC, have been claiming that temperatures have been higher than normal. But what is ‘normal’? In line with World Meteorological Organisation guidelines, climate is measured against 30-year ‘averaging’ periods. Known as ‘climate normal’ periods, these act as a benchmark against which the observational records of weather and climate can be compared to place them into context and as a reference baseline to provide context for future climate projections. The 30-year periods begin on January 1st of a year ending with the digit 1. Up till 2020, the base period – what we’re told is ‘normal’ – was the period from 1961 to 1990. Hopefully some readers will remember that from 1960 to at least 1980 the Earth cooled so much that even the experts at the climate-catastrophist Guardian assured us that a new Ice Age was on the way:

The situation was so dire that the CIA even wrote a report for the U.S. President detailing how global cooling would lead to crop failures, food shortages, famines and possible wars as countries fought over food resources:
