The real reason for the Met Office ‘extreme weather’ meeting

And the hype continues…  This is all part of the ongoing effort to create FUD in support of the political climate change agenda that services a lavish money train.  The Daily Wail is happy to play its part spreading the propaganda.

Have you noticed how until fairly recently weather forecasts just predicted the weather that was expected (to the usual mediocre standard).  But now it is a more common sight to see the weather forecaster standing in front of a split screen with the map on the left and large ‘weather warning’ triangles on the right.  But the weather warnings are seldom extreme events, they are the same kind of conditions we have long been used to on a sporadic basis, but now instead as simply being accepted as the varying nature of our weather they are presented in a way that deliberately suggests the conditions are somehow extreme, out of the ordinary and cause for concern.

I can think back to a May in the late 1980s where I was on my way to the coast and we had snow in southern England.  I can think of numerous occasions where heavy rain resulted in serious floods that covered playing local fields and football pitches.  Even ditches became small rivers and we kids built makeshift rafts to sail along them and try to sink each other.  I can think of several rotten summers where school holidays were characterised by rain, lack of sun and cooler than usual conditions that made a day jumping in the local river and larking about on the riverbank in our swimming trunks less than balmy.  What we are seeing now is not exceptional at all, and I doubt previous generations going back centuries would find them exceptional either.

The issue here is not that the weather has suddenly got very bad, it is that the weather is failing to conform with the Met Office’s predictions for a global warming thermaggedon.

The real reason for this hyped up meeting it that, having had to quietly and reluctantly dial down the rhetoric on ‘global warming’ in the face of observed events, the Met Office is seeking to reinforce its push of the ‘climate change’ narrative, where even conditions that run contrary to the Met Office’s previous predictions (not warmer, not drier, and not less snowy after all)  just happen to have the same human induced carbon root cause requiring the same politically driven taxpayer funded ‘solutions’.  There is nothing new under the sun here, apart for the desperate and cobbled together justifications for ‘action’ being presented to us.

Anyone being taken in by these hyperbolemongers deserves to be taken for fools.  The Met Office remains a poorly performing laughing stock devoted to hype in service of their and the government’s vested financial interests.

    The Met Office is no longer a forecasting agency dedicated to scientific analysis of meteorological conditions prevailing over the British Isles and environs.

    The Met Office, is a sub branch of the UK EU government green lunacy and climate change corps, which also includes; Defra, DECC and the EA – stuffed full of civil servants who are dedicated to pushing the great lie – ie that of man made warming.

    Does anyone actually take any notice of the met office’s forecasts? It’s another publicly funded entity that should be left to sink or swim in the real world. Or is it yet another strand of the Common Purpose web that is being weaved over the whole of our lives? Forecasting beyond authority?

    Forecasting beyond reality, more like.

    I remember coming home from school in about 1971, and it was snowing….in JUNE! (Cheshire)

    O.K, only for about two minutes, and it was melted before it really even landed, but it was there.

    I’d hazard a guess that the weather forecasts the Met Office sell to interested parties come with a “no refunds” clause – else the Met Office would be in serious financial diffuclties right now……

    Good article. It deserves to be read by all the ‘Know-all Non-entities’ that regrettably inhabit our Parliament. I shall try to put something together, & send it off in due course. Others may like to do the same in their own independent way. If so, keep us informed, please.

    Thank you for your voice of sanity. It’s nice to know there are others who feel the same way and are getting frustrated with this huge con. I had noticed these weather warning triangles trying to make us all panic over the usual British weather and can see through the hype. The thing is, they can’t even get the forecasts for the next few days right..

    It is the case here, that nearly every forcast ends with “Cooller than average for the time of year.”

    So. How often do they get to say that before some one decides to change the average, and make it “Normal for the time of year?”

    They got empowerment by fearmongering, there’s no way they want to lose that power.

    It’s also yet another manifestation of the nanny state. People can’t be trusted to deal with the weather as it comes – as they have done ever since the dawn of humanity. Oh no – they have to be instructed by their betters that it will, for instance, rain on Wednesday, so be careful to drive softly and carry a large umbrella.

    Oops did I mix up my metaphors there, or something?
