CM

Acid, why do you persist in such obvious cherry-picking? Do you think nobody will notice?

"Acid, why do you persist in such obvious cherry-picking? Do you think nobody will notice?'

CM,

It's your beloved Real Climate Cliamte Science Frauds, CRU, GISS and the IPCC who're the worst cherry pickers of data and that goes for the WMO another bent branch of the UN.

CM

So why the need to lower yourself to that level then?

CM

Here we go Fletch, I'll help you out with the first question I posed for you

(1) How many hot records were there?

http://www.ucar.edu/news/releases/2009/images/temps_2.jpg

For every record low in the decade just finished, there were two record highs.
But that would be an objective assessment. Are you interested in being objective?

CM

BTW the graph is from here

Also, with respect to what the UK Met Office actually said, it seems Ian is simply distorting as usual.

Here is what they actually said:

"Early indications are that it's looking like temperatures will be near or above average. But there's still a one in seven chance of a cold winter – with temperatures below average."

http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk/blog/2009/oct/27/uk-weather-mild-winter-forecast

No confidence there, no certainty, and no single prediction. Additionally, the forecast was for the whole season, not just an event.

Wrong CM:

The UK Met Office. basically had this on their website.

For 2009/2010 to be probably Winter milder and wetter than average.

There was also a statement.

still a one in seven chance of a cold winter.

I saw it myself.


CM

Um, you've pretty much just repeated the quote I provided. How is it different?

Rob Taylor

Gosh Ian, it hasn't been so cold in Europe since...the last time it was this cold in Europe.

wow, that proves it, AGW must be a crock.

Or could it just be the NAO, dimwit?

Actually CM,

It appears the UK Met Office have just done a 'sanitizing' of some their actual Winter 2009 reports. They've removed some of them. Probably due to embarrassment.


Early indications are that it's looking like temperatures will be near or above average. 2009/2010 Winter looks to be milder than last year.

They still have this Sept 2008 Press release for 2008/2009 Winter outlook. Which turned out be a joke.

Trend of mild winters continues
25 September 2008

The Met Office forecast for the coming winter suggests it is, once again, likely to be milder than average. It is also likely that the coming winter will be drier than last year.

Seasonal forecasts from the Met Office are used by many agencies across government, private and third sectors to help their long-term planning.

CM

>>>They've removed some of them.<<<

Can you prove that? I'm certainly not taking your word for it.

Mack

CM and Dickhead Taylor,
As looney brainwashed AGW believers you have been...
knee-capped by climate-gate
disallusioned by Copenhagen
thrashed 77% to 23% in the TV poll.
and are now suffering terminal Northern Hemisphere frostbite.
Is it hurting diddums?
Your AGW faith must be very strong!
AAaahahahahahahahahahahaha

Rob Taylor

Idiot child, physical reality is indifferent to your doggerel, and so am I.

Mack

Taylor,
And I am indifferent to the tripe you write ; here or any other site.

You denialists are pathetic. AGW theories show that extreme weather events will increase - just what we are seeing in the UK at present. This is Weather, not Climate too.
The only 'industry' at play here is the denialist industry funding these stupid memes you fools regurgitate uncritically. Grow up and learn to think for yourselves.

CM

Many extreme weather events have increased in recent years — and there is a link to climate change. The point is such well-established science that even that bastion of denial, the Bush Administration, acknowledged it in a major 2008 report, Weather and Climate Extremes in a Changing Climate. Yes, alarmists like Bush’s Commerce Sec. Carlos Gutierrez, Energy Sec. Samuel Bodman, and Science Advisor John Marburger III, signed off on the conclusion that:

"Heavy precipitation events averaged over North America have increased over the past 50 years, consistent with the observed increases in atmospheric water vapor, which have been associated with human-induced increases in greenhouse gases."

And they signed off on the conclusion that those “Extreme precipitation episodes” now “account for a larger percentage of total precipitation. The most significant changes have occurred in most of the United States.”

The report:

That is BS.

Even certain MSM are acknowledging including some of those in the Meteorological arena are stating the Coldspell in parts of Europe is similar to the 1970s Coldspells. Some have gone as far to suggest we could be heading back into that climate pattern of the 1970s.

Yeah those dredded Alarmist 1970s Ice Age scares. WE remember Sooo well!

Got any links, Acid? Or are you just dreaming sh*t up again?

>>>Yeah those dredded Alarmist 1970s Ice Age scares.<<<


Global cooling predictions in the 70s amounted to media and a handful of studies.There were significantly more papers in the 1970s predicting warming (42) than cooling (just 7)
Today, an avalanche of studies and overwhelming scientific consensus endorse anthropogenic global warming. To compare cooling predictions in the 70s to the current situation is both inappropriate and misleading.

CM.

It's obvious you're a tiresome troll.

Weather patterns were more like those in the late 1970s, experts said, while Met Office figures released on Monday are expected to show that the country is experiencing the coldest winter for up to 25 years.

CM

>>>It's obvious you're a tiresome troll.<<<

Providing actual evidence to support your crap is tiresome is it? I see.

Way to not provide a link again. I'll do your work for you:

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/topics/weather/6921281/Britain-facing-one-of-the-coldest-winters-in-100-years-experts-predict.html

Who are these experts? Why does the author fail to mention who they are?
What patterns in the 1970's?

More crap non-journalism. No wonder you were attracted to it.
