The Met Office get hundreds of millions from the taxpayer, and what do we get in return? Garbage like this!
Snowy winters could become a thing of the past as climate change affects the UK, Met Office analysis suggests.
It is one of a series of projections about how UK’s climate could change, shared with BBC Panorama.
It suggests by the 2040s most of southern England could no longer see sub-zero days. By the 2060s only high ground and northern Scotland are still likely to experience such cold days.
The projections are based on global emissions accelerating.
It could mean the end of sledging, snowmen and snowball fights, says Dr Lizzie Kendon, a senior Met Office scientist who worked on the climate projections.
„We’re saying by the end of the century much of the lying snow will have disappeared entirely except over the highest ground,“ she told Panorama.
If the world reduces emissions significantly the changes will be less dramatic, the Met Office says.
The average coldest day in the UK over the past three decades was -4.3 Celsius.
If emissions continue to accelerate, leading to a global temperature rise of 4C, then the average coldest day in the UK would remain above 0 Celsius across most of the country throughout winter.
Even if global emissions are reduced dramatically and world temperatures rise by 2C, the average coldest day in the UK is likely be 0 Celsius.
So if global temperatures rise by 4C, the UK’s will too! No s**t Sherlock.
Except of course they won’t.
Temperatures in England have risen by less than a degree in the last fifty years, and they actually stopped rising two decades ago:
Quite simply there is no evidence that they will start increasing again, never mind by 4C or even 2C.
Summer temperatures still refuse to go above those of 1976 or 1995:
And daytime temperatures in winter have also plateaued:
We are of course still waiting for that Mediterranean climate we were promised fifteen years ago:
The absurd Lizzie Kendon also raises the spectre of wetter winters and drier summers. But again, the actual data shows she is talking complete and utter rot:
Quite disgracefully, the BBC includes a video regarding the floods in South Yorkshire last year, which had nothing whatsoever to do with global warming:
Shame on both the BBC and Met Office for peddling this rubbish.
