Met Office has “cherry-picked climate change figures in a bid to increase evidence of global warming.”
The UK’s Meteorology Office has been accused by the Russians of lying. Well, I never! They say the Met Office has “cherry-picked climate change figures in a bid to increase evidence of global warming.”
I don’t like to keep on about it, but I said this in my book last year! I got the information via a science forum I belong to, populated by high-level scientists, including IPCC contributors. To get into my book I had to have had the information in early 2008, meaning that the truth about the Russian weather stations was made at least in 2007!
What we knew at that time was simple: the Russians closed down a huge number of temperature measuring stations, at the same time as Western scientists were collating world figures subsequently used in the IPCC Reports. Suddenly, there were incomplete data from a vast area of the northern hemisphere. But, the westerners continued without these vital figures! And, make no mistake, proxy measurements, whether tree-rings or satellite, are not equal to thermometer measurements and should never be mixed.
I see no problem in using them, but I see a very big problem when they are mixed by people like Michael Mann. The only reason he mixed them, was that between the various proxies they could be manipulated to produce the results he wanted. And we already know this is what he did. So, when the Russian stations were suddenly closed, Mann and others began to mix ‘n‘ match their figures, selecting whatever served their cause.
So, the Russian accusation is correct. We knew about this manipulation and selective use of data a few years ago. The assurances given by the Met Office are, then, highly suspect, because everyone knows they, and others of pro-green persuasion, are being very selective in their data. The Met Office claim the measuring sites are chosen for them by someone else. Do we believe that? Frankly, no. Even if we believe it, do we believe they don’t tamper with the figures? No, we don’t.
Do I believe the Moscow-based Institute of Economic Analysis, when, as critics tell us, they are only making the accusations to safeguard their gas, coal and electricity industries? Yes, I do! If their reason is to safeguard their economy, I don’t blame them. Indeed, I applaud them for doing so. Obama and Brown et al certainly don’t care what happens to their economies, and seem bent on destroying them for the sake of socialist ideals not shared by their electorate. The Russians say the British have picked figures that suit their theories on global warming. This certainly appears to be the case, especially when they are adamantly protecting the frauds and liars mentioned in the email scandal and won’t release raw data.
From Ice Age to Climate Change in a few Years!
Between 1975 (when a global ice-age was predicted by the same folks who vaunted global warming, and have now changed that to climate change) and 2000 the number of weather stations dropped from 7000 to 3000, because most of them were in the Soviet Union, who closed them down. Instead of recalculating, the western lads simply messed around with everything without proper recourse to genuine science. And we can legitimately say this, because, as the Russians tell us: “We want to know more about the Hadley Centre’s report, but they won’t show us the raw data.” Now, isn’t that a surprise? And isn’t it a sheer coincidence that they don’t share, just like Mann, Jones and others who are behind this gigantic fraud?
Of course, critics will latch-on to the fact that Russia does not want the Copenhagen Summit to insist on CO2 emission legislature. Perhaps they haven’t heard, but most people in the world are against it, and want nothing to do with climate change laws and controls! Brown in particular is rushing ahead of everyone else, as he always does, in order to bring the UK to its knees, and to bully its citizens with higher taxation, which will do absolutely nothing to help the mythical CO2 ‘problem’. But, he already knows that. Throughout the arduous years of Labour government the UK has suffered multiple tax hikes and multiple hidden taxes, all to pay for Brown’s big errors and socialist desires.
Another old-hat report, is that Brown is using the Summit to “push for new taxes on flights, shipping and finance.” (Which will drive up costs of food, clothing, industry, etc). Never! Once again, I related this in my book last year. I keep a constant check on what the UK government does, and using climate (or global warming as it was then) as a pretext to bring in huge taxes was an obvious reason for Brown to get involved in CO2 nonsense.
Until last year we heard nothing from Gordon Brown on the issue of CO2. But, when it dawned on him that he could tax everyone intensely, he was suddenly Green-Gordon! It is no coincidence that his new-found green heart came along at precisely the same time that his meddling brought about the financial crisis in the first place! He couldn’t get out of the mess he had dug for Britons or himself, so he thought he’d use CO2 as a lever to get more tax money. Easy stuff for a socialist who wants to hide his errors.
Something else coming out in the late stages of the Summit, is the fact that UK voters (who did not vote-in Brown as Prime Minister, nor did they vote him to act on CO2) are already being taxed several times over ‘green’ issues… on air travel, car fuel and energy. Prices on these items have shot up uncontrollably, without any scientific reason, and will continue to shoot up. The net result is hardship for millions in the UK. As I have said before, many cannot afford to heat their homes now.
True Cost of Greenery
This is already going on, so after the Summit the people are expecting to be throttled by more taxation. The costs of green tax in 2008 came to a staggering £26 billion. For a small country, that’s huge. And there’s more to come. Yet, even the deceptive UN says the cost of CO2 emissions to Britain by humans is only £4.6 billion. So, where’s the massive extra going? It is going to Gordon Brown, to make up the deficit he landed the country with when he invented the financial crisis (which he nastily blamed on the banks; Yes, they were culpable, but they were only acting on his advice or command)!
The UK Taxpayer’s Alliance says that “The cost is expected to increase massively in the years to come” as the true cost to families become “intolerably large”. He says people in the UK are already being overcharged for almost everything – and this can be confirmed.
So, when you read of the most recent ‘revelations’ remember they have been known for some time. I commend Russia for bringing this up right now – if it puts a spike in the Summit, then I will be more than pleased. I think, though, that leaders want to wring us dry, so will come up with something horrendous.
Until governments allow freedom of research and outcomes, do not trust them one little bit! Their aim is to drain you of your incomes, pensions and savings, until your life is made a sheer misery. Then, when you have had enough, they will bring in the ‘big guns’ of policy and law, to force you into a socialist strait-jacket. And this is what those 40,000-plus climate protestors are really about. They may be completely ignorant of the science, but their worst problem is following Marxist commands, that will destroy western civilization, including themselves. But that, of course, is the real intention of the Summit – both protestors and leaders want to intimidate everyone into submission. Is that Marxism in action, or not?
