AGW Fraud: Flood Alerts As Forecasters Put Spring On Hold

March 1, 2010

The Thames Barrier was raised to prevent London from flooding.

This year’s winter was the coldest since 1978/1979, Charles Powell, a Met Office forecaster, confirmed last night, as the country shivered through temperatures up to two degrees colder than average.

Scotland, which has been subjected to a particularly brutal winter, experienced the coldest temperatures in almost 50 years, he added.

While the wet weather was likely to ease up through the first half of next week, Mr Powell said that we could expect to see more “rain, sleet and snow” before next weekend.

He added that temperatures would continue to remain cold for the first part of spring, with warmer weather not likely until at least the end of the month.

“The next couple of weeks for the start of spring is set to remain rather cold,” he said.

The confirmation comes amid heavy criticism of the Met, which said Britain would likely expect a mild winter.

One of the consequences of cold wet weather is food crops do not grow.


EU Ethanol Bomb …

Farms produce ethanol, people starve. EU bio-fuels significantly harming food production in developing countries — EU bio-fuels 10% targets cause millions of people to go hungry and increase food prices. EU companies have taken millions of acres of land out of food production in Africa, central America and Asia to grow bio-fuels for transport, according to development campaigners. The consequences of European bio-fuel targets, said the report by ActionAid, could be up to 100 million more hungry people.

It’s sort of a weird concept, when the production of ethanol, the scam fuel du jour, pays more than food production, farmers produce ethanol, and people can go …
