As with God opinions regarding AGW (Anthropogenic Global Warming) tend to fall out along lines of personality and predetermined tendencies to accept certain positions without much need of evidence, rather than the more difficult process of intellectual appraisal.
There is now quite unequivocal evidence that the Earth is moving into a cooler phase and has been doing so for a few years now, but those who support AGW, including the ‘scientists’, will not openly acknowledge it and dismiss this third record breaking cold winter ( northern hemisphere) as natural variation. However, they cannot have it both ways; they cannot credit every extreme weather event that comes along as proof of AGW, and then classify cold weather as natural variation. The mantra they patronisingly use right now is that we ( the gullible public) must not confuse weather with climate. What? That is like saying do not confuse waves with the sea. Weather is a product of climate, if the climate were warming up then we would expect the weather to get warmer wouldn’t we? If not why the predictions of record-breaking temperatures and why would three cold winters and cool wet summers in a row not be an indication that the climate is getting cooler?
Dr Viner (UEA CRU) claimed (apart from citing that his decision to live in Stibbard was based on a wish to stay well above any areas likely to be inundated by sea level rise) that within a decade snow would cease to fall and would become so infrequent that it would become a novelty for children who had never seen it. Spot on there then. These people are so full of shit they no longer notice the smell.
The British Met Office has predicted that this will be one of the warmest winters on record, and as I understand it still do (even though we are only half way through). How can they justify this position? They do so apparently by taking the fifteen highest temperature readings between November and March and averaging them out. So as November was quite a warm month and despite the fact that Britain has been subjected to sub zero temperatures both day and night for a complete month since (coasts excepted) , that is where they will go for their temperature samples which will then be used to tell us, who have been struggling to get to work on icy roads and pavements, what this winter was actually like. Yes black is white and ten years hence who will remember. What do they say, lies, damn lies and statistics?
Anyone who believes in AGW without having taken a serious look at the evidence cannot convincingly argue that they have not been brainwashed. Can you?
