Climategate – Britain In Winter But Not At The BBC

Oxfordshire Winter 2010 -18C

This winter is one of the coldest on record with temperatures in Oxfordshire where Aardvark lives only 2 degrees warmer than Antarctica.

The spell of very cold weather means that winter fuel bills are going to be considerably more than they were this time last year, and not only because of fluctuating fuel prices but also due to the EU Emissions Trading Scheme.

This adds on average 14% to electricity bills which is about £120 per household. Like most schemes from the EU it is riddled with fraud and corruption which costs the EU €5 Billion a year.

With the news that the BBC is investigating the BBC about bias in science reporting is was hardly surprising that the BBC was hard at work pushing AGW propaganda today:

Following yesterday’s item aimed at making sure the kids are still on message about MMGW, today we had Newsround for grown-ups. In a report which aired on the 6 pm news on both BBC 1 and Radio 4 this evening, David Shukman explained:

“The key thing is that there’s a difference between the weather and the climate. The weather’s what you get day by day, month by month, like this cold spell. But the climate is the kind of weather you get over a thirty year period, and that’s what the scientists say is changing.”

As James Delingpole asked:

Q: What’s the difference between ‘weather’ and ‘climate’?

A: Climate is when it’s warming and weather is when it’s not

  1. I give it three months before they are out there explaining that this cold snap is caused by CO2 buildup causing warming that causes cooling (or as wee in the Peer Reviewed Scientific Community call it by it’s strictly correct name, coolwarming).

  2. There might be global warming or cooling but the important issue is whether we, as a human race, can do anything about it.

    There are a host of porkies and not very much truth barraging us everyday so its difficult to know what to believe.

    I think I have simplified the issue in an entertaining way on my blog which includes discussion on CO2.

    PS In my country a porky is not a fat person but refers to a statement or assertion of gross falsehood or extreme exaggeration.
