Can’t they just try to get the weather forecast right?

And so the propaganda continues:

The Met Office has teamed up with Rapanui, an eco-fashion company.

The Met Office eco clothing collection is made from organic cotton in an ethical, wind powered factory and features a range of weather related designs inspired by the imagery, science and history of the Met Office.

Mart Drake-Knight co-founder of Rapanui said:
“The Met Office is the international authority on climate change research, as well as being our national weather service that provides weather forecasts that we can trust and rely on.”

Perhaps Mr Drake-Knight should be more mindful of the Trade Descriptions Act when spouting assertions like that in PR puff pieces for the Met Office.  There was once a time when a meteorological office would focus on, you know, just getting the weather forecast right.  But just doing the weather is not so important when thar’s gold to be had in that there climate change activism…

    Here’s some more Government climate change propaganda that is getting churned out at the taxpayers expense, as per yesterday’s Daily Mail :

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1389199/Get-ready-lots-dry-summers-Government-warns-water-companies-droughts.html

    “Get ready for lots of dry summers as Government warns water companies of droughts”

    “Areas of Britain left bone dry by near-drought conditions were yesterday warned they were experiencing ‘a taste of things to come’.

    Environment minister Lord Henley said climate change would make parched springtimes more common and bring the threat of hosepipe bans”

    “In an ethical, wind powered factory” – Presumably they close for 2 weeks over the Christmas/New Year period?

    I’d really like to see this “wind powered factory” that the “ethical” liars say make these clothes. I would be willing to place s small bet that it isn’t eind powered at all – that it may have a small windmill on site but that the overwhelming majority of its power is from real generators. After all windmills only work at about 27|% capacity and I doubt the economic prascticality of sending the workers home whenn it isn’t windy.

    Not directly on the main topic but of relevance if anybody tries to suggest the Met Office parasites are ever to be trusted on anything.
