It won’t be long before we hear the wails and gnashing of teeth over Canada’s position at the Climate Conference in Cancun . Soon a deluge of outrage and counter-spin will hit the media. We have already had enough warnings of climate catastrophe to last a lifetime.
Don’t be fooled, they tell us.
Don’t be fooled by Australia’s wet and mild conditions. [The Ozzies are heading into summer remember]
A United Nations weather agency report, released on Friday, found 2010 is almost certain to rank as one of the hottest three years on record while the past 10 years are the warmest period since climate data began in 1850. …”While Australia has escaped this year … other parts of the planet are seeing incredibly hot temperatures,” he told reporters gathered with other climate scientists in Melbourne on Friday.
Other parts of the planet – like say, Norway?
Norway got over a hundred new records in November. Cold, colder, coldest. Unless you remember back to the year 1919, November 2010 is definitely the “coldest.” …On the whole, Norway has therefore experienced the coldest month of November since 1919, with the full 3.57 degrees below the normal level. Because the norm is regarded as cold , this is a very big difference!
Don’t be fooled by the record cold temperatures in the UK
Don’t be fooled.
But everyone has been fooled who thinks this has been and is about climate. It’s about power politics and money.
