Met Office Forgetfullness

Climate change

Strange that this should turn up on a German climate blog but then the UK media don’t report facts contrary to the climate change propaganda. At https://notrickszone.com/2022/09/13/rescued-66000-sheets-of-real-uk-rainfall-observations-refute-alarmist-claims-of-more-drought/ … a rather long url but full of interesting information. Contrary to media reports, and the climate change lobby in the UK, we have not been experiencing the worst drought ever. Actuial Met Office data going back 300 years, refutes the idea drought is worse now than it has been in the past. These records were kept in the Met Office basement when they were in Bracknell. Since they moved location their whereabouts have been something of a mystery, as far as the public is concerned. However, they have now been digitised, courtesy of a  citizen science project involving 16,000 volunteers. Presumably, this includes the lockdown period when people were looking for something useful to do when shut up in their homes. Some 66,000 paper sheets were scanned and digitised. They are now available to researchers and members of the public. A total of 3.34 million observations from 6000 different locations in Britain and Ireland are now openly available – even to the alarmists. Volunteers completed the transcription of rainfall and weather patterns in a remarkable project that has barely reached the ears of our erstwhile climate doom-mongering media people. Periods of extra wet weather, as well as drought episodes, are quite revealing as they do not support alarmist propaganda. For example, the driest year was in 1855 – and considerably drier than 2022, 0r even 1976. This is the embarrassing evidence the Met Office has kept under wraps for years, even though it was in their basement. We may wonder when sea ice records in the Arctic, taken by Royal Navy vessels during the 18th and 19th centuries, will be digitised, also in the Met Office archive.

William sent in a link to https://www.yahoo.com/news/triple-dip-la-ni-way-171523098.html … a triple dip La Nina is on the way. The link goes on to describe what it means for weather in the US. No doubt there will be lots of rain in Oz and a variable jet stream over NW Europe. In the US a La Nina winter brings cold weather and snow to the North West region, and to Vancouver in Canada. The weather in the southern states is often drier with La Nina but winter brings cold weather to New England and the northern Midwest, including New York state.

However, the Sun still plays a role as it is the source of high energy particles that buffet the atmosphere of the earth.
