Analysis: ‘Hottest Year Evah Nonsense’ From Media: ‘Satellite data shows no such thing at all’

More Hottest Year Evah Nonsense From The BBC

NOVEMBER 14, 2016
By Paul Homewood



This was, of course, the latest propaganda effort from the WMO, timed to coincide with COP22. We have seen it all before.

1) As ever, there was no mention at all of the fact that satellite data shows no such thing at all, with this year running neck and neck with 1998. (UAH, for example, have this year running at 0.007C cooler than 1998.)

2) The report repeatedly showed a sidebar claiming that global warming led to more extreme weather, something for which there is absolutely no evidence at all.

This claim is repeated, on the above online report, by Petteri Taalas, WMO secretary-general:

“Because of climate change, the occurrence and impact of extreme events has risen,” said Petteri Taalas.

“’Once in a generation’ heatwaves and flooding are becoming more regular

3) The online story continues this theme with the above grossly dishonest caption about droughts.

Again, there is no evidence that droughts are any worse this year than others, or that global warming has made them worse.

[WUWT has spotted that this picture actually dates back to 2006, and has now been replaced by the BBC!]

4) But the most laughable aspect of the story was their take on Donald Trump’s threat to withdraw from the Paris Agreement, which in turn showed how little they understand about that agreement.

The implication was that the Americans are being jolly unfair in not doing their bit, whilst the rest of the world were going to be busy cutting emissions. For some reason, they seem reluctant to tell viewers that it is only the western world which has pledged to reduce emissions, and that globally, as even the Paris Agreement itself acknowledged, emissions would likely rise by 15% up to 2030.
