No, global warming did NOT cause the storms, says one of the Met Office’s most senior experts


Of course, the green brigade and the brainwashed disciples of the climate change claptrap have tried, in vain, to convince anyone who will listen that the extreme weather to have blighted the UK in recent weeks is caused by man made global warming. As I reported in the previous post, the hapless Ed Miliband has now tried to jump on the climate change bandwagon in order to gain some much needed political capital. Nothing like exploiting the suffering of whole communities in order to further your political aspirations eh Ed? As the Mail have reported today, a senior meteorologist, Matt Collins, has stated, unequivocally, that there is no link between “climate change” and the recent extreme weather. Rather, Collins told the Mail on Sunday that the extreme weather is being driven by a stuck Jetstream. Collins has said that “There is no evidence that global warming can cause the jet stream to get stuck in the way it has this winter. If this is due to climate change, it is outside our knowledge.’

Once again I refer readers of this blog to the HAARP patents, authored by the late Dr. Bernard Eastlund. US Patent 20070238252, entitled “Cosmic particle ignition of artificially ionized plasma patterns in the atmosphere”, describes in detail how the upper atmosphere can be manipulated to alter the strength and flow of the Jetstream. It reads:

Two new approaches to weather modification and control are suggested. The first is for manipulation of the steering winds that control the development of mesocyclones, or the modification of the directions of the jet streams that influence development of hurricanes. The second is a method for influencing the electrical charge distribution in weather patterns such as meso-cyclones…Thus it can be seen that the ramifications are numerous, far-reaching, and exceedingly varied in usefulness.

Climate change is indeed man made, but not in the way people have been conditioned to understand it.

One of the Met Office’s most senior experts yesterday made a dramatic intervention in the climate change debate by insisting there is no link between the storms that have battered Britain and global warming.

Mat Collins, a Professor in climate systems at Exeter University, said the storms have been driven by the jet stream – the high-speed current of air that girdles the globe – which has been ‘stuck’ further south than usual.

Professor Collins told The Mail on Sunday: ‘There is no evidence that global warming can cause the jet stream to get stuck in the way it has this winter. If this is due to climate change, it is outside our knowledge.’

His statement carries particular significance because he is an internationally acknowledged expert on climate computer models and forecasts, and his university post is jointly funded by the Met Office.

Prof Collins is also a senior adviser – a ‘co-ordinating lead author’ – for the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). His statement appears to contradict Met Office chief scientist Dame Julia Slingo.

Last weekend, she said ‘all the evidence suggests that climate change has a role to play’ in the storms.

Prof Collins made clear that he believes it is likely global warming could lead to higher rainfall totals, because a warmer atmosphere can hold more water. But he said this has nothing to do with the storm conveyor belt.

He said that when the IPCC was compiling its Fifth Assessment Report on climate change last year, it discussed whether warming might affect the jet stream. But, he went on, ‘there was very low confidence that climate change has any effect on the jet stream getting stuck’. In the end, the possibility was not even mentioned in the report.
