Rats in a sack

In an analysis of the Met Office and BBC’s role in the winter forecast fiasco, John O’Sullivan offers an interesting take on possible events behind the scenes:

A report by a top BBC environment journalist, Roger Harrabin, implied that the UK’s Coalition government might have blocked the so-called ‘secret cold winter’ forecast.  But is there more to this story than meets the eye and have dark forces in high places conspired to frame the veteran journalist?

The risk here is that heading off at a tangent into possible conspiracies and character assassination most foul diverts necessary focus from the taxpayer funded Met Office’s failure to issue a public forecast for the coldest early winter for more than 100 years.

For the millions of our tax pounds that are lavished on the Met Office we are entitled to something much better.  The fact is the Met Office claimed it warned of the extreme weather but the evidence now obtained shows it did not. Further it shows the quality and detail of the forecast is little better than what could be produced by examining chicken entrails.

    diverts necessary focus

    And that is the bottom line, as you’ve pointed out.

    This is probably why many people (I would imagine), including me, only believe the weather we see, when we see it, rather than put any faith in what the establishment tells us.

    “dark forces” right this would be the hidden people that rigged the moon landings and hide the space aliens ?? strange angle to put on a story that is just simply =
    1=Met office lied to cover up useless data and crap science to wrong foot government that may kick it very hard [if we’re lucky !] and restore their real friends in the red corner!
    2= BBC useful idiot and all round A.G.W advocate [fee’s arranged and available for children’s parties and Bar Mitzvah] got feed rubbish by useless Met informer and has been found out as fool!

    The real distraction is the spat over this winters forecast. As serious as this failure is and the suffering it has most definitely caused, it pales into insignificance when you know that it is a distraction from the real issue.

    That is a high level multi-decadal conspiracy to shackle the entire global population with carbon slavery.

    To which Harrabin, the BBC, the Met Office and practically every career politician in the UK, are up to their necks in.

    There is your distraction.

    The more the rats wriggle and writhe the more of them become visible. Particularly those who jump to the defence of Harrabin who is without doubt a fully paid up “green-shirt” fascist.

    The tip of the Carbon Slave trade ice-berge:

    Chairman of the Met Office: Robert Napier is also Chairman of the Carbon Disclosure Project which has $64 trillion under management.

    This is just one fund with $64 trillion looking for return on investment. Where is this return on investment going to come from?

    It will come from a cap on your human rights. Your human rights to stay warm, cook your food, take your kids to school and travel long distances to find employment are to be restricted. Those rights we all take for granted will be capped. Once you have exceeded your weekly allowance you will have to purchase more human rights. Those human rights,(“carbon offsets”) will be bought and sold on the commodities exchanges around the world. Our human rights bought and sold like a bushel of wheat.

    That is where the return on investment for Robert Napier’s Carbon Disclosure Projects $64 trillion is, or rather, was, supposed to come from.

    That is a trade in human rights. A Carbon Slave Trade.

    That is the real story here, make no mistake.

    I’m not sure its even as sophisticated a ‘conspiracy’ as Will suggests, it is, for different groups, a chance to further their own desire for wealth and power.

    For the politicians it creates the opportuntiy to restrict opportunity and freedom of choice and movement. Ditto the Civil Servants. For the Greenpeace surrogates its a chance to amass large amounts of money ‘saving the planet’ and for those of the left, a chance to impose restrictions on capitalist activity, seize assets and build their concept of a socialist paradise.

    The science was corrupted the moment the first politician and civil servants got involved.

    @ The Grey Monk

    It is all the above and more. But as I said, above all it is about carbon slavery.

    The trade in human rights, nothing less.

    Beware! There are dark forces behind the scenes in Government. You might think I am talking about politicians who really are just in collusion. The pests in the woodwrok are top unelected civil servants who are intent on manipulating the British People under the demise of global warming. Our politicians are just puppets to Civil servants and Political Party propaganda.
