Chief Science Officer From Met Office Let’s The Cat Out Of The Bag On Current “Heat Wave”

The Met Office is one of the chief suppliers of climate data to Warmists around the world, including the UN IPCC. So, this comment did not go over well with Warmists, such as at far left The Canary

The BBC was too late deleting a tweet that spoke volumes about its climate change reporting

On 24 July, Prof Stephen Belcher appeared on BBC Newsnight. As the Met Office’s chief scientist, he gave an expert opinion about the reasons behind soaring temperatures in Europe and around the world. But after the broadcast, the BBC tweeted:

“The heatwave that we’ve got is probably part of natural cycles in the weather” – The Chief Scientist at the Met Office, Stephen Belcher, explains the significance of this summer’s heatwave.

Although it subsequently deleted the tweet, it was too little, too late. The BBC needs to raise its game in reporting on climate change.

See, here’s what they see as the problem

First, the Fox Derangement Syndrome is hilarious, especially when we’re talking about a pretty far left Progressive outlet like the BBC. Second, the full quote doesn’t change anything, because no inference as to whether the warming is natural, manmade, or some part of each is mentioned. Warm periods have been happening throughout the Holocene (and surely throughout the lifetime of the Earth’s atmosphere), and they were all pretty much natural. This one is no different.

    “The heatwave that we’ve got is probably part of natural cycles in the weather but it’s superimposed on this background of global warming, and that’s what’s elevating our temperatures”

    The statement is reasonable and true. What’s your beef?

  2. J Hosha'na says:

    The full quote was true. All natural climate variability is superimposed on warming caused by greenhouse gases. Don’t tell us you weren’t aware of that.
