Am I allowed a touch of shadenfreude? Again. Paul Homewood and Pierre Gosselin highlight the embarrassing “Just Say Anything as long as you blame Climate Change” from Met Office Chief Dame Julia Slingo.
Last year it was drought:
And don’t forget that was followed by near record rainfall in April. This year it is storms and rain. Is there anything we can’t blame on climate change? Or try to?
If forecasts are so wrong, you’ve got to blame something. Perhaps Dame Julia’s pronouncement, just like with the drought, will put an end to the run of storms – her very own version of The Gore Effect. Before the drought/deluges we had the warm winter that wasn’t, and then there was the ‘average’ July that turned out lovely.
Never mind. Here are a few ‘wow’ pictures from the last few days.There’s certainly been a lot of weather in the past few weeks. Personally, I blame climate change ;-).
