Was 2022 the U.K.’s Hottest Year on Record - Poor Quality Data And Bad Science Suggest We Should Be Sceptical

Scientists at the UK's official weather reporting organisation, the Met Office and 'science journalists' in the government's propaganda mouthpieces collectively known as mainstream media are joyfully reporting that  that the U.K. is on track to record its ‘hottest’ year ever (well at least since records began about 150 years ago). Thanks to a mild winter (January to March and autumn (mid - September to mid - December and a genuinely wonderful summer by British standards, the average temperature in 2022 is set to come in at 9.99oC, up from the previous 2014 record of 9.88oC. But how reliable is this, or any of, the figures we are fed in connection with 'net zero' propanganda and rising global temperatures, when measured against accurate satellite data

In fact the global mean temperature has not moved for over eight years. And before that, after peaking in 1998 average temperature dropped sharply for a few years before returning to the same level in 2013, after which there was another pause in what the climate change Cassandras claim is a constantly rising trend, until 2022. The infographic above, which is based in satellite data shows the Met Office claims that each year since hass been warmer than the last is not based on real world data. It has long been known that The Met Office and academics in various UK universities rely on 'adjusted' data from surface measurements, and it would appear their results owe a lot to some factor not related to actual weather. One suspect is increasing urban heat corruption, as well as some curious sitings of measuring devices.

The most curious placing of a measuring device (or perhaps not if you have a nasty suspicious mind like us Boggart Bloggers,) is half way down the runway of a military airbase that houses two squadrons of Typhoon fighter jets. The Met Office tells us that one of the weather extremes of 2022 was a high of 40.3oC on July 19th. Regular readers will recall that this blog has commented before on the bizarre coincidence which saw temperatures at that measuring station soar briefly to a record high for the UK at the same time as several of the jets were taking off for a training flight. Other reports back up our suspicions that the ‘record’ at RAF Coningsby, where that temperature high held the for only 60 seconds at 3.12pm are justified.

The Met Office first explained that the sudden rise could have been due to cloud cover, but a satellite photo shows clear skies across the area at that time and throughout the afternoon. Investigative reporters have since established that at least two Typhoon jet were operating at the base at the time. The Met Office has ignored all subsequent questions about the claim.

So far we have only looked at the UK, but this kind of scientific jiggery pokery is going on all around the globe as World Government propagandists try to whip up fear levels over impending climate disaster to match those reached at the hight of the COVID Biblical Plague scare a couple of years ago.

There is no scientifically organised system of data collection, other than the satellite date, (wich as has been mentioned is not used by government departments or universities when running their mathematicalo models of the climate. Instead we have an irregular scattering of thermometer readings from across the globe, which, it is no coincidence, are mostly sited in wealthy and socially developed western countries. Data is taken from these and adjusted (manipulated.)

Where there happen to be no thermometers, which is most of the world, and nowhere in the oceans for obvious reasons, the temperature is simply guessed at. From this total fiasco of a dataset of 'adjusted' (manipulated) data, we are led to believe that some bunch of government funded data propagandists tasked with politicising the weather through propaganda, tell us which year was warmer than previous years, often by hundredths of a degree. They also claim to know beyond doubt that the warming is caused by Carbon Dioxide emissions from human activities because "the science is settled," although any competent scientists will tell you science is never settled because the scientific method is founded on the constant questioning of everything.

Unfortunately it turns out the thermometers used to collect data from surface measuring stations are dogged by accuracy problems. They may have started in an empty field in the early 20th century and 100 years later are surrounded by buildings and heat sources they were never designed to measure to these kinds of accuracies and the error bars will mostly be larger than the temperature claimed.

We can also see that since temperatures around the world are hardly rising at all (only a fraction of one degree in the past 100 years,) despite more and more CO2 going into the atmosphere, that there was this shift to declare “hottest years”, as for most of the public this will lead them to assume that humans are indeed warming up the planet, when infact for 20 years warming has been negligible. Or as we saw in one of the Climategate emails that embarrassed the climate con artists “We cannot account for the lack of warming”.

A more honest lead author at the IPCC admitted. “There must be something wrong with our models, as a 20 year pause in global warming does not occur in any of them” —–(You won’t hear any of that on the BBC or read it in national newspapers, will you?) Plus, in all of these alarmist claims there is the ever-present bogey man of ECS (Equilibrium Climate Sensitivity)—–The number that tells us whether there will be mild warming or serious warming. —–The number is still UNKNOWN, and alarmists simply assume in their models that ECS is a large number, which kind of explains why their models are always WRONG.

So when the alarmist and even hysterical reports that 2022 was the hottest year ever, ever, ever. Woe,woe and thrice woe, we're all going to die, take it with a pinch of salt. The politicians are just trying to grab more power and the scientists are trying to grab more money via research grants.


Germany Forcing Farmers To Use LESS Fertilizer To Satisfy EU’s Green Agenda
The German government, already reeling from the public backlash against rising fuel prices, the shortage of gas since supplies from Russia were cut off, and the biggest economic crisis in the EU, has now jumped on another 'woke' bandwagon. The socialist led ruling coalition has banned farmers in one of its federal states from properly fertilizing land in compliance with the latest lunacy of the EU's green agenda ...

Germany haemorrhaging cash to keep country running on as ‘net zero’ becomes zeroeconomic activity
Germany was so desperate to achieve 'net zero' CO2 emissions that for years the country's government closed its fossil fuel-fired and nuclear power plants,replacing those plants with wind and solar power — as well as impoorting huge volumes of natural gas and oil from Russia. After the Russian invasion of Ukraine in February 2022, when NATO (aka the U.S.A.) mandated that the West impose retaliatory sanctions on Russia, including a ban on importation of Russian gas and oil, Germany found itself in a hole:

The Truth About Coal And The Lies Of The Elite
So much for all the COP 26 banter late last year. Let me remind you. The elites all flew in on their private jets and promptly told us we’re all (royal we) getting off fossil fuels and killing coal.So how’s that turning out? The usage of coal is now at record highs:

Britain is Breaking Down; The Economy Is Struggling, Living Standards Are Falling, Institutions Are Failing
Successive governments have brought Britain to its knees.This article will focus on Britain as representative of the general malaise that is afflicting almost all the developed world. Our current crop of politicians have discarded the resources that brought the country out of the post war decline ... In spite of being rich in energy resources Britain is now in an energy crisis, our leaders have sacrificed prosperity on the altar of Net Zero, committing the nation to our reducing our 1% contribution to harmful emissions still further ...

Climate Scientists' Mathematical Models Of Reality Wrong Again…New Study Shows Jet Stream Strengthening, Not Weakening
recent research  by Samantha Hallam et al published in the journal Climate Dynamics looks at the seasonal variations over decades in Northern Hemisphere jet stream latitude and speed over land for the period 1871–2011. The authors report that they found no evidence of weakening of the sort climate alarmists have been warning about for the past three decades.

Official Advice - Prepare For Blackouts This Winter
The UK government is putting plans together for days of organised blackouts this winter, in what they call a "reasonable worst-case scenario" for energy shortages, according to reports in manstream media. Naturally they are blaming this on the embargo on importing gas from Russia but in reality Britain has never imported any more than a small amout of its gas from Russia. The real reason politicians and energy company CEOs are panicking is entirely due to their obession with obtaining all our energy from intermittent sources like wind and sunshine ...

UK Households Are Paying Wind Turbine Owners To Not Generate Electricity
On another near windless day here in the United Kingdom, Boggart Blog came across a very interesting piece if news. According to figures published by the business and management consultancy LCP, british taxpayers have been paying operators of wind turbines farms for the time their windmills were NOT generating electricity increased to record levels last year ...

Net Zero Is A Dangerous Fantasy, But Scientists Believe In Fairies It Seems
With oil and gas prices rocketing and the highly propted sustainable energy sources performing way befow expectations the energy crisis currently gripping Europe (with worse to come as food shortages start to bite, polticians still seem more intent on pandering to the green lobby and chasing the dream of a fossil fuel free world rather securing the energy and food supplies needed by the people they serve.

New UN Report on Climate Change – Nothing New, Nothing True
The latest United Nations (“UN”) Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (“IPCC”) report, published this week, once again, in scaremongering tone and the language of the panic stricken, claims that the planet is in peril (we are facing climate disaster, the clock is at one minute to midnight, we must take urgent action to destroy civilisation if we are to save the planet, the usual over - dramatised guff designed to spread fear and panic,) basically the same claim as they have been making at least twice a month for the past 20 years.

We need energy security – not Net Zero
Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has prompted a major rethink in the West. We have suddenly found ourselves vulnerable not just to rising prices in oil and gas, but also to inflation in other commodities – such as food and fertiliser. Of all these problems, the security of our energy supply has most exercised minds.

Net Zero Gone With The Wind - Boris Johnson Plans Seven New Nuclear Plants And Shelves Wind Expansion
Reports in mainstream media suggest Boris Johnson has done a U turn on his recently announced massive expansion of wind powered generating capacity. Sources in Westminster claim Boris has shelved his masterplan for a giant, floating wind farm in The North Sea and the government will reconsider plans to double or even treble the number of wind turbines in the countryside and approve plans for up to seven new nuclear reactors instead.

Just When We Need It Most, Renewable Energy Disappears
In an encouraging sign of a great awakening, million of people in the UK are now, after a week of brutally cold, absolutely windless weather asking "Why have we wasted so much money on wind turbines and harvesting solar energy."
  Yet when politicians are asked directly: "How do we keep the lights on and our homes warm when the wind does not blow and the sun is too low in the sky to make much impression on photovoltaic cells that do the business in solar panels?

Europe's Cold Spell Exposes Green Energy Policy Failure
So far the autumn of 2022 has been unusually mild which has had eco-warriors getting worked up and gluing their arses to motorways and airport runways to demand that we stop using oil. However winter temperatures across Europe predictably dropped sharply in late November and through most of December to date have been positively arctic. Scientists have offered the opinion that the cold weather spell the ongoing European gas crisis is now “likely” to worsen significantly as usual seasonal weather spreads across the northern half of the continent, bringing with it an increased need for domestic heating.

Thousands of Dutch farms will be forced out of business to meet new EU 'Nitrogen pollution targets
he globalist technocrats who control The European Union (EU) have enacted new environmental protection laws which will force member states, including The Netherlands, to meet the new targets for reducing emissions, which address nitrogen emissions from human activity rather than Carbon Dioxide, the Netherlands government proposes to shut down a large portion of its farming industry in order to comply with emissions targets ...

It Looks As If Carbon Credits Scam Has INCREASED CO2 Emissions

As the climate change scare becomes more and more exposed for the money making fraud it always was, they green weirdie beardie, rope sandal wearing tree huggers get more hysterical and stupid in their arguments that we must all return to medieval lifestyles, the billionaires like Al Gore who hope to profit from it keep flogging the dead horse and the angrier and more vicious the left wing hate mobs become in their witch hunts.

Arrogance, Intolerance, Snobbishness and Corrupt, Self Interested Practices. It's modern science. The world sems to be waking up the the fact that while in the past scientists tended to be rather detached, slightly obsessive people not driven by material goals, the modern science academy has been very largely corrupted by political patronage and corporate money. The academic field of climate science it especially notable for this.

Hiding The Decline In Temperatures Through Massive Data Tampering
We've said forever that the global warming scare was a massive fraud, cooked up by governments that needed an excuse to impose massive tax increases to plug the black hole in the global economy. They had willing allies in the science academe of course. Yep, so long as they are confident the research grants will keep flowing, scientists will always give their political and corporate paymaster the required answer ...

Electricity cuts and power crisis predicted for Britain’s New Year Holiday
Shapps carefully omits to mention that the government’s only contingency plan for providing the power needed to meet peaks of demand (a sudden cold snap for example) is to spark up the thousands of diesel generators the earth loving politicians have concealed in goods containers on compounds sited around the country. Yes you read that right, diesel generators ...

p>Global Warming Is Not Causing Any Polar Ice Cap Meltdown Says NASA
Updated data from NASA satellite instruments reveal the Earth’s polar ice caps have not receded at all since the satellite instruments began measuring the ice caps in 1979. Since the end of 2012, moreover, total polar ice extent has largely remained above the post-1979 average. The updated data contradict one of the most frequently asserted global warming claims – that global warming is causing the polar ice caps to recede.

ExxonMobil Tells The Guardian To Stick Their Leftie Hypocrisy Where The Lights Don't Shine
We have often made points about the hypocroisy of the left, particularly those lefties who support the global warming scaremongering of the Warmageddonist Lobby who spread false propaganda about climate change in order to justify punitive taxes on the fuels that produce the energy than make modern sociaty viable.

Climate Experts Smeared by Media and Greenpeace for Debunking Global Warming
Anyone who understood basic arithmetic (like how to work out an average) and took the trouble to examine the 'science' that backed the climate change scare understood the whole thing was a fraud. And plenty of honest scientists were not afraid to say so. But those who went public faced hate attacks and having their careers trashed. Now however, as evidence exposes the lies of the global warming lobby, they are starting to come forward.

The Climate Bollocks Of Bill Nye The Stupidity Guy
Nothing feels quite as goodf these days as exposing the idiotic pomposity of another self styled 'scientist'. We have reported before on the sutpid, uninformed, politically correct bollocks disseminated by American TV scientist and Z list celebrity 'Bill Nye The Science Guy', but recently he has surpassed himself by putting the politically correct agenda above the facts.

Why are people sceptical about climate change?
Forget the leftie hate mobs for the moment, ignore their claims that 'the science is settled' and any talk of 'the scientific consensus, there is a lot more to the debate than simple minded science worshippers will admit. Which explains of course why they are so desperate to suppress open discussion of the issue.
