« "Something fundamentally wrong" with CO2 theories - new study | Main | Emissions Trading Scheme: 40% cut will cost $3000 per PERSON! »


Ian Wishart



Because of their AGW Bias. The UK Met Office is a joke.

They failed with their mild winter predictions. Instead the recent last UK winter was the coldest in over 13yrs.

The have appeared to fail again with the predictions the UK was going to have a heatwave lasting all through this current UK summer!

Met Office 'Barbecue summer' hopes dashed by Piers Corbyn

"These events and short medium and long range forecasts now active spell failure for the Met Office forecast of a 'barbecue summer' which we advised our own forecast users to ignore. This is the third wet summer for Britain and Ireland in a row where the weather has turned out to be opposite to the Met Office long range prognosis and has instead been in line with our long range forecast. Along with the Met Office spectacular failure to predict the icy & snowy winter of 2008/09 which also confirmed WeatherAction's forecast one has to ask: For how much longer will government, 'opposition' and much of commerce continue to follow failed methodology?

"The Met Office long range forecasts will continue to fail because they are founded on the politically motivated false theory of man-made global warming and related computer models. The fact is the world has been cooling for at least 7 years while CO2 has been rapidly rising. Our proven science explains why and shows the world cooling will generally continue at least to 2030 and the world will remain generally cooler than recently for a hundred years".


Quite a bit of Ian Wishart in the media recently:

Gareth Renowden, very critical of Nick Smith too:

I think you meant this one, Peter

"This is just wrong on so many levels."

Isn't it just!!
This whole issue has taken on the fervor of religious fundamentalism (left wing definition).
One gets the feeling that we are entering a period of rapid transition, our civilization is at the peak of the bell curve and about to drop off the other side.


Also of interest:

Weather records are a state secret

The IPCC's computer models have proved just as wrong in predicting global temperatures as the Met Office has been in forecasting those mild winters and heatwave summers, says Christopher Booker.

Everyone has enjoyed the discomfiture of the Met Office, caught out over its April forecast that we were in for a "barbecue summer" – not least because this is the third year running that our weathermen have got their predictions for both summer and winter hopelessly wrong. In 2007 and 2008 they forecast that summers would be warmer and drier, and winters milder than average – just before temperatures plunged and the heavens opened, deluging us with abnormal rain or snow according to season.

One cause of the blunders that have made the Met Office a laughing stock is less widely appreciated, however. It is that the multi-million pound computer it uses to assist its short-term forecasting for Britain is also one of the four main official sources of data used by the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) to predict global warming. In this respect the IPCC's computer models have proved just as wrong in predicting global temperatures as the Met Office has been in forecasting those mild winters and heatwave summers.


NIWA have egg over their face aswell. They were predicting a mild winter.

National Climate – July 2009: The cold continued

Temperature: Below average temperatures over much of the country, except for near average temperatures in the southwest of the South Island, and the north of the North Island.

It was the third month in a row with below average temperatures over much of the country – although the cold temperatures in July were not as unusual as those in May or June. Well below average temperatures for July (between 1.2 and 2.0 °C lower than normal) were recorded in North Otago, alpine areas of Canterbury and Westland, and Waiouru. Most other regions around the country experienced below average July temperatures (between 0.5 and 1.0 °C lower than normal), except for near average temperatures at either end of the country (in the southwest of the South Island and the north of the North Island). The national average temperature of 7.3°C was 0.4°C below the long-term average for July.


This is funny.

Weather supercomputer used to predict climate change is one of Britain's worst polluters

However the Met Office's HQ has now been named as one of the worst buildings in Britain for pollution - responsible for more than 12,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide a year.
