Amazing what a difference a month makes.
One month ago:
One month later:
Originally they told us:
The recent storms that have brought heavy rain and floods to much of the UK cannot definitely be linked to climate change, the Met Office has said.
A spokesman said that was “a research project which hasn’t been done”.
Guess they must have rushed through that research project…..
Now we have:
Dame Julia Slingo said the variable UK climate meant there was “no definitive answer” to what caused the storms.
“But all the evidence suggests there is a link to climate change,” she added.
“There is no evidence to counter the basic premise that a warmer world will lead to more intense daily and hourly rain events.”
I guess that’s ‘all the evidence’ as in ‘all the evidence points to the Boston Bombers being white supremacists’.
Don’t you just love that ‘There is no evidence to counter the basic premise…..’?
…but there is no evidence to prove the basic premise either…..
and hang on….the lack of evidence to counter AGW causing storms?…..emm….17 years of no warming is evidence of no warming….for 17 years…so how is global warming causing storms?
The lack of evidence that CO2 causes global warming doesn’t stop them closing down Western industry does it?
Science eh….who needs it when you’ve got the Voodoo princess, Julia Slingo, making it up as they go along and the BBC unquestioningly printing everything she prophesises.
Guess…conjecture, surmise, speculate, reckon, dare say, dodgy…hocum.
Some words for any BBC environmental journo looking to investigate the issues.
