".... except that whenever alarmists want to use transient weather events to make their points there is no objection....."

I am reminded of a salient and what should be a pertinent example here in the UK just 6 years ago;-

"The hottest year since 1659 spells global doom"

"....In Britain, the temperatures recorded this year have been remarkable, said Prof Jones....

........The warmest April to October period was reported with a mean temperature of 14.6C. The warmest autumn was measured with a mean temperature of 12.6C.........."

2012 - April to October period was reported with a mean temperature of 12.5C, lower than the autumn of 6 years ago. Maybe you have heard about it on your side of the pond? On this side the MSM appear to have collectively succumbed to a mysterious thermally activated form of myopia.

It is nearly April, the daffodils are in bloom here, and we are supposed to get some snow this weekend (near Philadelphia) which is quite rare in springtime here. Oh, must be that "global weirding" because otherwise people might wonder if the planet is really heating into the danger zone. I know, weather not climate..... except that whenever alarmists want to use transient weather events to make their points there is no objection.....

The deterioration in the UK weather is all down to a cunning plot conjured up in the Guardian offices:-

From that moment on it has been all downhill!

Well, I commented again on NLP, as I promised never to do. My usual dismissal of the threat of two degrees. I don't think they like argumentative though. They like to be daft in their own world undisturbed by morlocks.

Your employment at the Guardian recently has had a real effect on their scientific reporting... they are providinf data aswell:
Is the weather worse under the Coalition government?

Attention NLP watchers:

NLP has a new climate change article - What Zombie Films Can Teach Us About Climate Change. It's by Christopher Shaw, "Visiting Fellow, Science and Technology Policy Research at the University of Sussex". His interest is what he sees as the danger of the "orthodoxy" that climate policy should be targeted at ensuring that temperatures do not increase by more than 2 degrees C. He fears that "two degrees of warming will be well in excess of anything one might reasonably consider dangerous.

This extract gives an idea of his thinking:

As well as working ideologically to construct climate change as the type of problem that does not pose a challenge to the legitimacy of the current order, the claim of a scientific two degree dangerous limit poses climate change as a problem for the future, allowing fossil fuel industries to continue with business as usual while an industrial scale techno-fix is sought.

Groan.

Science, and the power of.. or the power of a white coat... just a wild guess, just not sure many here would be part of the 60% or so who actually killed the "learner"... who knows...
