With state of the art technology and the latest info available at the flick of a switch I fail to see why the public should have to put up with out of date forecasts. In this fast moving situation its

I've only gone and done it. This went to the Press Complaints Commission this morning....         1i) The Press must take care not to publish inaccurate, misleading or distorted information, including

Ok, but as humans, we can distinguish the two root causes of CO2 in the atmosphere. As you say, natural and man made. Aside from CO2, there are plenty of other elements which are IMO, worse than CO2 such as NOXs and Ozones. CO2 can be moped up by organic life, these other elements will hang around and cause damage to the environment.

I agree with you. I recommend y'all watch this: http://www.netflix.com/watch/80033772?trackId=14170151&tctx=6%252C3%252Cb5b4383b-5660-47b8-8170-f7ba50e3aa13-950297

The Daily Stun

______________________________

 

Britain to be rocked by six months of weather

 

 

 

The Daily Stun has learned that Britain now faces six months of weather that may be the most concentrated six months of weather since April to September of this year.

 

 

According to senior forecaster Corblimey Crisp of Post-traumatic Weather Partners, an unusual pattern of water in the North Atlantic could "very easily" add moisture to the atmosphere, resulting in what Crisp called "clouds -- excuse the jargon, to the average layperson, the grey stuff that hides the horizon."

 

 

Crisp went on to explain that air does not just sit around doing nothing, it moves from one place to another. "Once again, apologies for the jargon, but we airologists call this phenomenon wind. Think of it this way, if you're in a boat and the engine fails, the boat will still move somewhere, because the water is moving. This is because somebody dumped a lot of currants into the ocean and they bang against the side of the boat, forcing it to move. The atmosphere is the same way. Now that we have airplanes, the air moves too, because airplanes force it to start moving."

 

Reg Crock of the Theoretical Institute for Raising Taxes said that concern was "only growing" by this phenomenon of days becoming consecutive. "First you have just days, then weeks, fortnights, and then months. Somewhere in there, the government should get concerned and raise taxes, just in case that stops it from happening."

 

Professor I. Shudanowanbetr of the Russian Academy of Pretend Sciences said that methane seeping out of collapsing ancient alien astronaut bases under the permafrost of the O'no-Notnow region north of the Putin Circle might be "the most significant cause of global warming, other than American cars which we all want to see gone."

 

A spokesman for the U.K. Met Office said that budgetary cutbacks meant that he had no idea when he might call back.

 

Last winter, there were dire predictions of 120 days of blizzards. This apparently verified, although on top of a mountain in Alaska rather than in Birmingham. One source commented that there was "not that much difference" between these two locations, other than geographic position. The same source, when pressed to give a retrospective overview of the season that might be more accurate than 120 days of blizzards, said "a whole lot of nothing."

 

The forecast for this weekend is a whole lot of nothing, followed by a minor example of something, then a return to intervals of nothing, something, and whatever. The next actual weather event is expected to be in November.

I've seen recently a number of articles from the daily express saying we will be having a really cold winter with heavy snow ect... I never listen or take on board anything they say, one time in a million they will be right. But as a matter of interest will the stronger than usual el-nino effect this winters weather more than the last few?

A little weather story from today's Sunday Post...

TV weather forecasters drive nuts when they continually get it wrong.

Help, though, is at hand - from Mother Nature's busy little bees!

It seems bees are narrowing the entries to thier hives to keep in the heat, and the last time they did that was before the harsh winter of 2010.

So, to bees on the safe side, look out your snow shovels - a winter Armageddon is on its way.

much as i like our media, and have worked in it for years, it really doesnt get weather reporting right. the express is a joke and they know it.i think the independent seems the most measured. well done them

 

The Express (and other tabloids) have no interest in getting it right. They purely make up sensationalist, dangerous BS to sell papers.

Yet another example of how certain areas of the media deliberately mislead on important issues.

Lol even more funny is that in the replies at the bottom, the MO are getting the slagging off even though they are not even mentioned.
There really should be a fine every time a tabloid publishes this type of crap, even the most devout Mirror/Express reader must by past this sort of rubbish.

The biggest shock for me would be if Madden's name wasn't there as the 'forecaster' behind these headlines. Time and time again he is wrong, obviously The Express have forgotten already about his 'very warm and sunny August that he predicted at the end of July'.
