Met Office: Global warming sceptics 'have heads in sand'

Keith Garrett

Quite a hoax

> Climate change is the biggest swindle since records began.

Quite an amazing accomplishment though. Getting several thousand scientists to be intellectually dishonest about their chosen subject with large amounts of false reporting of data without one major scientific body disagreeing with them.

Most impressive bit was finding anyone who has been reading temperature or CO2 levels since 1972 and getting them to be part of this great jape in case they spoil the punchline.

Nice one with getting NASA in on the act so their satellite measurement systems fed back the wrong data and said the earth was warming! That was brilliant.

Bit worried about the cost of all those heaters they needed to melt the north pole though to make it look like it was actually melting. And chiseling bits of ice shelf off the antarctic must have taken a while.

The people who orchestrated this could run the world's best logistics company. Astounding guys!

What are we aiming at?

"So come on, answer the real questions. What are we aiming at ?"

Preventing the planet going over a point where it starts producing a massive excess of CO2 above the natural balance. Once this happens the process becomes self re-enforcing and there is probably not a lot we can do. Yes, this is only based on the best scientific knowledge available but the consequence of inaction are potentially disastrous for human-kind.

"If you think we can control the climate on a planet wide scale, is it wise to conduct the first experiment on our own planet ?"

It's a terrible idea. We should stop the experiment right now.

Trends

"Mind, arent these the same people who are telling me this is the 2nd or 3rd warmest year ever in the UK? (hot rain, obviously...) Now WHY do I have difficulty believing them...?"

As the temperature rises the models suggest we are likely to get less predictable weather. We are seeing changes in nature where temperature dependent hatchings are occurring earlier and the whole balance in the cycle of life is thrown out.

No scientific body is saying the world is not getting warmer.

Thermometers

"So? The thermometer was invented during the Little Ice Age. We've no record of temperatures in the Medieval Warm Period."

Well apart from 3000 year old trees and ice cores.

UK gov greenlights 450MW wind farm

20 percent

The electricity system in this country can cope with 20% of it's generation from wind. After that we need to think about storage, smart electricity systems etc. Currently we are at less than 1%.

It is important that we have all the kettles on constantly.
