A B-BBC reader asks;

“During the milder than normal November/December of 2011, I saw a weather report on the BBC which used a graphic comparing temperatures to the average for the time of year.

From memory, the graphic and the temperature line used nice warmish colours and was on an upward trajectory. This indicated the temperature was above average for the time of year, and that it would be rising for the rest of the week in question. 

I’ve been waiting to see a similar graphic with blue colours on a downward trajectory. Maybe I’ve missed it, but I wonder if any of your other eagle-eyed readers have spotted one?”

Over to you…

    Here’s something you rarely see on the BBC’s own weather page…

    “…it is the 11th year out of the last 12 when the Met Office global temperature forecast has been too warm…Whatever the reason for the ongoing ‘warm bias’ in Met Office global temperatures, their forecast for the first half of this decade, published in early 2010, that half the years between 2010 and 2015 would be hotter than the hottest year on record (with an anomaly of 0.52C set in 1998) is already looking in doubt…”
    – Paul Hudson, weather presenter and climate correspondent for BBC Look North in Yorkshire and Lincolnshire.

    1. This won’t stay up on the BBC site for too long before it is culled for being explicitly off-message.
    2. Mr Hudson will no doubt be expecting his P45 any moment as a result of his careless talk.

      He’s the popular weather man on Look North. If they fire him, they’ll have hundreds of thousands of OAPs going apeshit. They wouldn’t dare.

    We recorded -13.3c last night thats the coldest I have ever recorded in Britain. Hardly a word. Last month they were happy to forecast that we were heading for the mildest winter on record. Now what do the say Nothing. We all know its colder.
    So its make a fuss when its warmer and says little or nothing when its colder.

    Biased BBC.

    Look at the graph below, it compares alarmist CAGW models in green with the reality and solar based variation in blue.

    As you can see the CAGW fraudsters computer models are dead wrong, the IPCC based models are utterly wrong.

    here is a graph the BBC will not be showing, its a bit like Obamas approval rating, when its down its invisible, when its up the BBC advertises it as if it were the word of the Gods.

      Great Cassandra, have just blogged and linked (and added the widget!) Worth pointing out that it is still ‘only another model’ although the data backs it up more than the governmental backed one!

    Oh dear poor B-BBC and Harribo’s pet weather washing idea has rather fallen flat  so wounder how much cash that little plot cost us ?

    You’ll have a long wait.  The BBC are stuck in this greenie time warp, where everything is getting warmer, even if it’s colder, and they’ll never admit to backing the wrong horse.

    They’ll spin and spin and spin, and then spin some more – after all, pensions depend on it.  I’d like to say their credibility depends upon it, but of course we all know it doesn’t – they no longer have any credibility, about anything.

    Off on a huge tangent. What do people think of BBC use of blue screen behind reporters? 


  7. grangebank says:

    By January 20 they were saying the average for the month was higher than usual esp when compared to  January before  ie comparing 3 weeks info in one yearwith 4 weeks info of other years .


  8. Richard Pinder says:

    The bias goes like this.

    If the observations do not fit the assumptions, then there must be an error in the observations. Therefore they make a correction. The problem with this is that the errors are always colder than the corrections.
