BBC Forced To Retract False Claim About Hurricanes

“Of course, we have the usual problem, that those who read the article originally and who would have been deeply misled, won’t see the correction now.”

THE disturbing part is that the BBC knows unequivocally that they are creating alarm by distorting historical data and exaggerating future scenarios in order to push their catastrophic climate narrative.


By Paul Homewood


You may recall the above report by the BBC, which described how bad last year’s Atlantic hurricane season was, before commenting at the end:

A warmer world is bringing us a greater number of hurricanes and a greater risk of a hurricane becoming the most powerful category 5.

As I promised, I fired off a complaint, which at first they did their best to dodge. After my refusal to accept their reply, they have now been forced to back down.

The above sentence now no longer appears, and instead they now say:

Of course, we have the usual problem, that those who read the article originally and who would have been deeply misled, won’t see the correction now.

What is perhaps of most concern is that this report was written by Chris Fawkes, who is one of the BBC’s weather forecasters, and who should therefore know…

Climate Change : Who Are The Real Science ‘Deniers’?

Screen Shot 2018-03-19 at 2.37.19 pm.png

EARLIER today I reported on Sydney’s Autumn 38 degree Sun-day, noting that “the usual climate ambulance chasers will be sharpening the lead and filling ink wells to inscribe “climate change” “global warming” on their “extreme weather” report cards, feeling morally-bound to fashionably link mankind’s activities to the follies of nature.” 

IT didn’t take long for Australian Greens’ leader, Senator Richard Di Natale to blame the current bout of extreme, yet, not-out-of-the-ordinary natural disasters, on ‘climate change’.

IN a speech to the Senate, Di Natale cited a government that had been doing “everything it can to slow this country’s transition to renewable energy” such that “Australians are bearing the brunt of their failure.” That failure, according to Di Natale, manifesting in the form of bushfires in Victoria and New South Wales and a cyclone to the North. The fires still burning as the Senator delivered his insensitive rant.

A reaction of little surprise from a leader of the Greens. The minor party with a major bark obsessed with the latest environmental hype. Pushing propaganda to brighten the colour of its own flag, damn the costs and the suffering.

AS well, a reaction of someone who either ignores, refuses or denies Australia’s well ‘established’ bushfire history…

HISTORICAL sample of autumn Victoria and NSW bushfires when CO2 was at ‘safe’ levels (1854 – 1952):

RATHER than spending billions of taxpayers money subsidising windmills and solar panels in a hubristic attempt to ‘change the weather’, it would be far wiser spending the publics hard-earned money on better fire prevention and containment measures to protect people and their property from a natural hazard that has and always will be a part of the Australian existence.



“In the last few days we’ve seen bushfires savage Tathra, Bega and South West Victoria. We’ve seen a cyclone hit Darwin…” 

SENATOR Di Natale quick to blame cyclone Marcus on ‘climate change’ but slow to understand the overall trend in Australian tropical cyclones:


Graph showing the number of severe and non-severe tropical cyclones from 1970-2017 which have occurred in the Australian region. Severe tropical cyclones are shown here as those with a minimum central pressure less than 970 hPa.

A few clicks to the government’s tropical cyclone page reveals ‘unequivocal’ and clear data that, again, the Senator either ignores, refuses or denies the existence of: an ‘inconvenient’ trend of fewer and less intense cyclones as CO2 rises. The exact opposite of what we were promised by global warming alarmists.


FOR so long, climate ‘sceptics’ have been labeled climate/science “deniers” in crude reference to those who deny the holocaust, with the pejorative used in a broader effort to shut down debate and silence dissent. However, when hard evidence is laid out over alarmist rhetoric, it’s not hard to see who in fact are the real deniers of history and indeed, deniers of science.

SYDNEY Autumn Heatwaves Are Not Uncommon

heat wave ahead.jpg

WITH the mercury topping 38C in Sydney over the weekend (hottest in 78 years), the usual climate ambulance chasers will be sharpening the lead and filling ink wells to inscribe “climate change” “global warming” on their “extreme weather” report cards, feeling morally-bound to fashionably link mankind’s activities to the follies of nature.

HOWEVER, heatwaves and fires in Sydney during autumn months are not uncommon, even when CO2 was at ‘safe’ levels…

(2018 atmospheric CO2 levels are currently at ~400 ppm)


24 March 1899

1899 CO2 = 295 ppm

Screen Shot 2018-03-19 at 7.42.20 am.png


A heat wave reaced Sydney to-day, causing the thermometers to register 90.4deg. in the shade. This heat, though much less than was recently recorded in the southern capitals, was far more enervating, owing to the huge percentage of moisture in the atmosphere. Mr. Russell says that only a dozen times in the history of the colony has a higher March temperature been recorded in Sydney, and if the lateness of the month is taken into account, to-day’s heat will go very close to constituting a record. In the evening a cool change set in from the south.

Sydney, Monday
This month has so far proved the hottest March experienced in Sydney. To-day the thermometer mounted to 100.7 [38C] decrees in the city. In the Western suburbs higher readings were recorded. Parramatta registered 104 [40C] degrees. It was very dry and hot with nil exceptionally low percentage of humidity. Much dust was carried by the blustering westerly and north-westerly wind. The forecast for to-morrow is more hot weather with prospects of the cool change, which is so much desired. It is oppressively hot in the city to-night. Inland the weather is hot and dry. A temperature of 105 [40.5C] decrees was reported from Bourke, and 106 [41C] from Jerry’s Plain.

Sydney, March 8.
This month has so far proved the hottest March experienced in Sydney. To-day was a decided scorcher. The thermometer went to 100.7 degrees [38C] in the city, while in the western suburbs higher readings still were recorded. Parramatta had 104 degrees [40C]. It was a very dry heat, with an exceptionally low percentage of humidity. Much dust was carried by blistering westerly and north-westerly winds. A change had been promised for to-day, but the Weather Bureau officials say this change has unexpectedly been held up at about Moruya. For to-morrow the forecast is more hot winds with prospects of a cool change, which is so much desired in Sydney. It was oppressively hot in the city tonight. Inland too the weather is hot and dry. A temperature of 105 degrees [40.5] is reported from Bourke and 106 degrees [41C] from Jerry’s Plains.
Sydney. March 8.
To-day’s exceedingly hot weather was accompanied by a record number of fires in the surroundings of Sydney.

SYDNEY. March 31.
During March Sydney experienced the worst heat wave on record, not so much for the Intensity of the heat, but for the duration of the high readings. During the 10 days until yesterday the ‘maximum temperature in Sydney was over 80deg. The maximum on Saturday was 85deg. and to-day 87.2deg [30.5]. Water restrictions will be imposed next week unless rain falls. Sydney has had no substantial falls for 12 months.

Though Autumn is now officially here, the northern half of the State is experiencing a heat-waye. A bushfire is ravaging the Cobar area. The highest temperature in the State yesterday was at Wilcannia (111degrees) [44C], but several other towns were over the 100 [38C] including Cobar 110 [43], Bourke 109 [43], Hillston 105 [40.4], and Broken Hill 101 [38].
Thousands of Sydney people flocked to the beaches seeking relief from the muggy heat last night, but they were disappointed. They found that the water temperature
was one degree higher than that on the beach.
Police and volunteers : early this morning were fighting a bushfire which was racing over grasslands toward the far western town of Hermidale. . .

Climate Revisionism 101 : “We Have To Get Rid Of The Medieval Warm Period”

WHEN you are a man-made global warming alarmist prosecuting your case as “unprecedented”, you need to make sure that no recent climate era was as warm or warmer than the present, even if that means having to rewrite the past to fit your theory.

THE Medieval Warm Period, also known as the Medieval Climate Optimum (for obvious reasons) existed a short time ago in the climate record, from c. 950 to c. 1250., and has remained a thorn in the side for modern “global warming” catastrophists…

IN the 1990 IPCC report, the Medieval Warm Period was much warmer than the late 19th century:

THE IPCC’s 1990 report dives deeper into the reality of the Medieval Warm Period and provides an insight into the cause of these warming periods:

“This period of widespread warmth is notable in that there is no evidence that it was accompanied by an increase of greenhouse gases.

IPCC WG1 Report 1990 (p202)

BY the 2001 IPCC report, the Medieval Warm period disappeared and became much cooler than the late 20th century:


BY pure coincidence, in the year 1995 the IPCC made a decision to make the Medieval Warm Period disappear:

YOUTUBE clip of Dr David Deming’s US Senate testimony on the “disappearance” of the Medieval Warm Period (see 01m:50s) :

Video of Dr David Deming’s statement to the U.S. Senate Committee on Environment & Public Works on December 6, 2006. Dr Deming reveals that in 1995 a leading scientist emailed him saying “We have to get rid of the Medieval Warm Period”. A few years later, Michael Mann and the IPCC did just that by publishing the now throughly discredited hockey stick graph.

IN case you missed it…

“I had another interesting experience around the time my paper in Science was published. I received an astonishing email from a major researcher in the area of climate change. He said, “We have to get rid of the Medieval Warm Period.””

The existence of the MWP had been recognized in the scientific literature for decades. But now it was a major embarrassment to those maintaining that the 20th century warming was truly anomalous. It had to be “gotten rid of.””

Statement of Dr. David Deming | U.S. Senate Committee


ACCORDING to ‘science’, the Medieval Warm Period was indeed ‘global’ and was as warm, if not warmer, than today’s current warming period…

ARCTIC Temperatures Plunge! (Don’t expect mainstream media to cover it)

THE collective screams and cries over the recent Arctic “heat wave” were deafening. On cue, climate ‘scientists’ and the global warming-obsessed mainstream media took every opportunity to yell “CLIMATE CHANGE” – of the man-made variety, of course…


This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The Guardian wheeled out their usual Arctic alarmist experts to drive home the “unprecedented” event…

“It’s just crazy, crazy stuff,” said Mark Serreze, director of the National Snow and Ice Data Center in Boulder, Colorado, who has been studying the Arctic since 1982. “These heat waves – I’ve never seen anything like this.”

Experts say what’s happening is unprecedented, part of a global warming-driven cycle that probably played a role in the recent strong, icy storms in Europe and the north-eastern US.

“The extended warmth really has staggered all of us,” Mottram said.

It’s Called Weather, George!!

Arctic meltdown silly season is in full swing again!

DMI show the same spike:




But is it an “off the scale event”?

Unfortunately for poor George’s credibility, the answer is no. We had very similar conditions back in 1976:



Read on here…


THE latest DMI confirms what the mainstream media will not – a dramatic temperature plunge north of the 80th northern parallel…


SIMPLE question for Arctic alarmists :

  • What happened to all that heat-trapping CO2 from our SUV’s? Or, is the recent temperature spike in the Arctic, that contrastingly led to one of the coldest and snowiest winters in recorded history, merely part of the chaotic and complex system we call weather?

DON’T expect an answer. This temperature correction will not be reported in the fake news media because it clearly doesn’t fit their warming narrative.

SAD, yet true.

CHILLING Fact Is Most Climate Change Theories Are Wrong


GLOBAL warming alarmists want to change us, they want to change our behaviour, our way of life, our values and preferences. They want to restrict our freedom because they themselves believe they know what is good for us. They are not interested in climate or the environment. They misuse the climate in their goal to restrict our freedom. Therefore, what is in danger is freedom, not the climate.

FORMER head of Deutsche Bank, the ABC and ASX, Maurice Newman, writes a must read opinion piece in the The Australian providing further evidence that the “global warming movement is really the triumph of ideology over science”…

  • The Australian

You have to hand it to Peter Hannam, The Sydney Morning Herald’s climate change alarmist-in-chief, for his report last month – “ ‘Really ­extreme’ global weather event leaves scientists aghast”.

Hannam is often the ­canary in the coalmine (er, wind farm) when there is a sense that public belief in man-made global warming is flagging. With Europe in the grip of a much colder winter than predicted and with the ­abnormal chill spreading even to Africa, he did his best to hold the line.

Earlier this year, Climate Council councillor Will Steffen also climbed on board — for The Sydney Morning Herald of course. Extreme cold in Britain, Switzerland and Japan, a record-breaking cold snap in Canada and the US and an expansion of the East Antarctic ice sheet coincided with a ­Bureau of Meteorology tweet (later retracted) that January 7 had set a heat record for the ­Sydney Basin. Steffen told us these seemingly unrelated events were in fact linked. “Climate ­disruption” explained both. Whether fire or ice, we’re to blame. No ifs, no buts.

Now a warming Arctic provides the perfect opportunity for Hannam to divert attention from the latest deep freeze. He ominously warns: “Climate scientists are used to seeing the range of weather extremes stretched by global warming, but few episodes appear as remarkable as this week’s unusual heat over the Arctic.”

It’s true, warm air has made its way up to the high Arctic, driving temperatures up to 20C above ­average. But Anthony Watts, who runs a climate change website, puts things into perspective. He observes: “Warm moist air from the Pacific and Atlantic oceans has warmed the Arctic above the 80th parallel. It should be noted, however, that the Arctic Circle actually starts at 66 degrees north, meaning the record heat is over a much narrower area.”

Cato Institute atmospheric scientist Ryan Maue reviewed high Arctic temperature data going back to 1958 and says: “Data before the satellite era … has some problems, so it’s hard to say the current spike is for sure a record.” He says that if the baseline is 1973, when the polar-­orbiting satellites began recording the data, there is not much difference between today’s ice extent and then.

Indeed, we now have satellite confirmation that global air temperatures are back to the same level they were before the 2014-16 super El Nino event and, this January and February, the decline accelerated. Since 2015 satellites also have detected a fall in sea surface temperatures.

Solar expert Piers Corbyn, of British forecasting group Wea­therAction and famous for his successful wagers against the British Met Office forecasts, predicts Earth faces another mini ice age with potentially devastating consequences. He notes: “The frequency of sunspots is expected to rapidly decline … reaching a minimum between the years 2019 and 2020.” Indeed, the present decline in solar activity is faster than at any time in the past 9300 years, suggesting an end to the grand solar maximum.

Critics say while “it might be safe to go with (Corbyn’s) forecast for rain next Tuesday, it would be foolish to gamble the world can just go on burning all the coal and oil we want”. That’s the nub of it. The world has bet the shop on CO2 warming and the “science” must be defended at all costs.

But while spinning unfalsi­fiable “climate disruption” slogans may sway readers of The Sydney Morning Herald and resonate with believers in their centrally heated halls, those in the real world, witnessing hundreds of people dying of the cold and thousands more receiving emergency treatment, will consider they’ve been duped.

Not feeling duped are successive Australian governments that have become committed members of a green-left global warming movement promoted by the UN. On dubious scientific grounds they have agreed to accept meaningless, anti-growth, CO2 emission targets that enrich elites and burden the masses.

And, true to label, a Green Climate Fund supported by Australia and 42 mostly developed countries will redistribute $US100 billion ($128bn) annually to poorer nations as reparation for the unspecified environmental harm the West has allegedly caused them.

Big emitters such as China, India and Russia are conspicuously absent.

Policing Australia’s targets and helping to spread confirmatory propaganda is a network of international and local bureaucracies. The world’s academies and meteorological organisations, frequently found to be unreliable and biased, keep the faith alive. They reject debate and starve nonconforming researchers of funds and information. Students are indoctrinated with unproven climate-change theories that an unquestioning media gladly ­reinforces. Meanwhile, the country ingenuously surrenders its competitive advantage by refusing to embrace its rich endowment of affordable baseload energy. This it happily exports while lining the pockets of renewable energy rent-seekers with generous taxpayer subsidies.

Should the world enter a per­iod of global cooling, we should ­expect concerted denial. Too many livelihoods, too many reputations and too much ideology ­depend on the CO2 narrative. Having ceded sovereignty over our economies’ commanding heights to unelected bureaucrats in Geneva, the West (Donald Trump excluded) repeatedly turns to expensive vanity projects to paper over this folly. If the iceman cometh, there can be no quick fix. Yet we know it takes twice as much energy to heat a home than to cool one. So pity the poor and infirm who respected medical journal The Lancet says are 20 times likelier to die from cold than heat.

While even to mention a mini ice age risks scorn and derision, recent research has shown a close correlation between solar activity and climate on Earth. That possibility alone should cause shivers. But it will take time and experience before we accept the global warming movement is really the triumph of ideology over science. Until then we will continue to commit life’s cardinal sin of putting too many eggs into one questionable basket.

THERE’S Nothing Unprecedented About Our Current Weather – Booker


By Paul Homewood

Booker skewers Monbiot in his column today:

Christopher Booker


Although The Guardian’s George Monbiot waxes famously excitable over anything he can blame on global warming, he got carried away even more than usual last week. As Britain suffered from blizzards and a deep freeze, he noted a recent spike in temperatures in the Arctic, taking them up to 63F (35C) above average. “This is more than just a temperature anomaly,” he tweeted, “it is an off-the-scale event. Why is the Arctic meltdown not headline news in every paper?”

It did not take long for our expert friend Paul Homewood, on his blog Notalotofpeopleknowthat, to track down one answer to that question. He published a graph and charts from the Danish Meteorological Institute showing a similar temperature spike in 1976 which also brought March snow to Britain.

Far from being “crazy”, “weird” and “unprecedented”, as is claimed by various scientists…
