2016’s Record Warmth Brought Record Crop Yields, Fewer Storms

Bloody “global warming” or “climate change” or whatever they prefer to call it that has caused record crop yields and less extreme weather!


By Paul Homewood



From the Daily Caller:

Climate scientists declared 2016 the warmest year on record, sending shockwaves through the media, which immediately began attributing the warming to fossil fuel use.

Earth is “heading toward levels that many experts believe will pose a profound threat to both the natural world and to human civilization,” The New York Times warned. Global average temperature was less than a one-hundredth of a degree Fahrenheit warmer than 2015.

While the media worried about anthropogenic global warming scenarios, some good news in 2016 was likely missed: record crop yields and relatively fewer storms.

“We are screwing ourselves”

A common sense explanation by Roger Helmer MEP on the insanity of climate policy/solutions dreamed up by the virtue-signalling, climate-obsessed EU that merely shift jobs and wealth off-shore and do nothing to “Save The Planet”….

On Wednesday (Jan 18th) I attended a dinner-debate in the parliament, sponsored by Eurofer, the European Steel Federation, and entitled “EU ETS Revision: Unlocking low-carbon investments in the steel industry”.  It was a very well-attended event, with many MEPs as well as many from the industry, and we heard seven mini-presentations of various schemes designed to reduce CO2 emissions in steel production.  The industry is acutely concerned about current revisions to the EU’s Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS), which provides a limited number of “free allowances” (of emissions permits) in an attempt to protect energy-intensive industries in the EU from international competition, and from the cost impact of EU energy policies.

Several MEPs contributed from the floor after the set presentations.  My remarks (as near as I can remember – it was not recorded) went like this:

Thank you Chairman, and thanks to our hosts.  Thank you also…
