Every month seems to be the hottest, the driest, the wettest, or whichever record-breaking event it is.


By Paul Homewood

This article sums up just how hysterical some so-called experts have become:


Take this comment, for instance:

Many flowering plants, including orchids, wilted in the high temperatures, meaning insects like bees and butterflies that feed on nectar and pollen will have less to eat, Ali Morse from the Wildlife Trusts told BBC News.

Species with short lifespans are particularly badly affected. Many butterflies are adults for only a short time, and if they cannot access food in that period, it stunts the population.

These impacts are more surprising considering the wet and cold spring and are earlier than last year, Ms Morse added.

Every month seems to be the hottest, the driest, the wettest, or whichever record-breaking event it is. If we have a one-off pollution event or a wildfire, then there is normally time for nature to bounce back, but now it seems to be continually pounded by extreme weather,” she added.

“Every month seems to be the hottest, the driest, the wettest, or whichever record-breaking event it is.”

Really, Ms Morse?

If you really believe that, you are living in a fantasy world! I suggest you get back in touch with reality, and check what the facts say.

First, temperatures:


There is a cluster of coldest months in the early record, and another cluster of hottest towards the end, just as you would expect in a gradually warming climate. However, there has only been one, solitary record since 2015, and that was of course last month.

And rainfall? Again, just one monthly record since 2014; that was February 2020. In total, just four records since 1997, which is about average:

In short, we have had just two monthly records for temperature and rainfall in the last eight years; that is hardly “every month”, Ms Morse!

Indeed two in eight years is pretty much what you would expect. With 48 records up for grabs over a period of 187 years for rain and 140 years for temperature, the law of averages say you will get one every three years.

Sadly this hysteria is not confined to the odd buffoon, like our Ms Morse.

After the ‘hottest’ June I’ve just had to turn the central heating back on, here in SE England and it’s going to be like this until the weekend. In July, dammit! It’s weather, not climate, stupids!

Me too – it feels more like early October than July here. The ‘hottest June’ was because of exactly one day in June, not the average for the month. Once again, a fudging of the facts – an average of the entire month would likely result in a severe tumble down the record list.

Na! I know the odds are microscopically tiny that I’ll win, but to me it is worth the $10.00 a week to have the dream of winning. In addition it does not even really cost me $10.00 a week because I often win free plays.

I will be 68 years old next month and statistically the life expectancy of a white male in the US is 73.5 years; so the dream is as much for my descendants as it is for me.

Now the question of if that dream could actually be a nightmare that does more harm than good is another question. One that I have pondered and decided that the odds are it would be good based upon my family as I know them.

Actually, when the expected value from all prizes becomes positive, you should buy state lottos. The state provides the various prize odds for you. For Florida, the expected value sum turns positive when the grand prize rolls to over $8.5 million,in their new system. That happens surprisingly often here in Florida, several times a year and sometimes for weeks at a time. Do that consistently and you will over time make money. Back when I was in Chicago, I was over 17 years about $20k to the good, all in Illinois Lottery second and third prizes. Il had fewer numbers so higher odds.

The expected value sum is almost never positive for the big US multistate lotteries like Powerball and Megamillions.

The claim of the hottest June on record in the UK is subjective to how good those thermometers are. This is a ubiquitous problem plaguing pretty much every thermometer in the world. After it’s hard to keep a long record free of artificial influence.

I would also counter by saying that Eastern Europe had a cooler than average June and they are sweeping that fact under the rug. Using my thermometer problem point from earlier, it’s likely that not only are the warmer than average figures inflated upwards but so are the cooler than average figures in Eastern Europe. Therefore, it’s likely that Eastern Europe was even cooler than what we think and Western Europe was warm but not in anyway usual. Just the same old climate fluctuations that have been going since the creation of Earth.

The Pacific Ocean off the coast of the SW USA is very, very cool and it is dominating our weather. SoCal was cold this past winter and has been cool (cold for us) all spring. Nevada and Arizona are having very pleasant springs. Summer has arrived so it will heat up but been overcast for months in San Diego we call it May-Gray and June-Gloom. Has a name because it recurs every so often. Even in the land of perfect weather we get screwed as well.

In other news today from another great British institution:

NatWest is allowing staff to go to work identifying as men and women on different days as part of a series of LGBT-friendly diversity measures.
The bank has offered double-sided lanyards to staff who identify as non-binary – neither male nor female.
The measure enables them to adopt “masculine and feminine” personas and means they have the option to alternate between these separate identities at different times.
In addition, workers have been able to display their preferred pronouns and phonetic spellings of their names on environmentally-friendly bamboo badges.
Guidance on the “diversity, equity and inclusion [DE&I]” section of the NatWest website read: “For our colleagues, we have introduced dual-sided work passes that allow non-binary colleagues to present in masculine and feminine expression.”

I think its a very disturbing general social phenomenon, at least in the English speaking countries. Its widespread irrationality and unrealism on a whole range of social and policy topics, sex and gender, race, energy, climate. Even finance – consider so called Modern Monetary Theory. One crazy idea after another, all inconsistent with readily obtainable facts. And increasingly a situation in which people are being required by employers and service providers to at least pretend to believe in this nonsense or conceal their dissent.

In the present case, June was in no way remarkable, fishes and insects were not affected any more than in any other summer. And you cannot be a man one day and a woman the next. This is surely totall obvious. But it will be brave (and probably short term) NatWest employee who says so in the training meetings

We are moving towards a Chinese style social credit environment, decentralized and with corporate and civil service enforcement. The recent publicity about UK banks closing accounts because they don’t care for customer’s views are indicative.

Paypal did this (and subsequently reversed themselves) to the Free Speech Union and the Daily Sceptic. This is the logical next step after dissent has been characterized as phobia or denialism.

And if you look at recent legislation in the Republic of Ireland and in Scotland you see that very serious levels of repression of speech are also now making their way onto the statute books. To save the planet, or in the cause of diversity of course. Or to protect people from ever coming into contact with ideas they do not wish to hear.

Our technocratic overlords in the West saw the efficiency of the Chinese Social Credit system at suppressing dissent and thought, “That’s exactly what we want”.

An entire generation believes every word of this.

I’m not sure how to prepare. Every utility out there is run by people who have to accept this faith or lose their jobs. It’s not like we can build neighborhood nuclear reactors, and unreliables + batteries are prohibitively expensive at the size needed to rely upon. Plus you’d never get permission to install if you didn’t connect them so that the utility could take when it wanted to take.

I’m losing hope. When the grid starts failing, the media will blame everyone but themselves. And the kids will believe them.

July 4, 2023 1:40 pm

Paul fails to mention that the UK has also broken its own annual temperature record (starts 1884) twice since 2014, that the 12 warmest annual UK temperatures have occurred since 2002 and that the five warmest years on record have occurred since 2006.

The warmest year on record in the UK is currently last year, 2022; yet not a single new record monthly temperature was set last year. Just consistently above average warmth. Ditto 2014, the previous record warmest year. Not everything is about monthly records.

The amount of UHI warming varies day to day as far as this layman can tell.
Greatest on low wind clear days, least on overcast/rainy and/or high wind days. Any adjustments have to reflect that. A blanket adjustment of x degrees isn’t good enough.
It’s like the BBC made a big play on the fact that June had above average sunshine and below average rainfall, well b*gg*r me that combination was a surprise.
On a hot sunny day with a bit of wind does UHI extend much further on the leeward side than on the windward?

They expect us to believe that they collected all the Weather station data from all over the world and calculated the temperature the next day.
Where was all the Quality checks carried out by each Met office?
How did they get the data from 3rd world countries.
This is obviously a scam.

LOL, despite all the hype and rabid exaggeration of temperatures..

June UAH is a MASSIVE 0.01ºC warmer than May was.

From the article: “Many flowering plants, including orchids, wilted in the high temperatures, meaning insects like bees and butterflies that feed on nectar and pollen will have less to eat, Ali Morse from the Wildlife Trusts told BBC News.

Species with short lifespans are particularly badly affected. Many butterflies are adults for only a short time, and if they cannot access food in that period, it stunts the population.”

This heat wave only lasted one day, didn’t it? What was the “record” high temperature, 82 F?

I’m having a hard time taking this seriously.

Some butterflies don’t even have mouth parts or digestive systems so they don’t eat at all ever. This could also stunt the population if they don’t breed in that time. Which of course is what they are supposed to do. Is that temperature dependent?

Record temperatures are no more than slightly interesting trivia.
The recorded incidence may have only been for a few seconds, a few minutes or a few hours which would make it insignificant.
A recorded maximum or minimum is only valid if the exact same measuring method is used for the entire relative period. This means there are no temperature records valid for periods of significant length. A record for the year, decade, or century has little meaning other than something slightly unusual may have happened.
The use of record readings or even, daily maximum or minimums, is to me the most ridiculous way to describe climate. They impart no logical or useful data. There are no consistent means of measurement or consistent environmental locations for measuring. There is no logical means of comparison to past conditions or any basis for prediction. The available data is less valuable than anecdotal musings by seniors recollections..

Pure specious sophistry using made up alarmist claims.

Plants produce nectar so long as they have the nutrients, water and sunlight. A little wilting neither prevents nectar production nor impedes insect access or utilization.

Orchids, especially the UK’s native terrestrial orchids often use trickery to force visiting bees to carry pollen to other orchids. A day’s temperatures do not affect either orchids or insect pollinators.

So this morning on Bloomberg, they started hyping this article. I watch it for the charts and news items with no sound. They had an expert CEO on to substantiate their report. It went terribly wrong. Their premise for the article was that climate change was going to cause agriculture problems. Unfortunately, they had not told him that. His first truth telling was that this was weather, not climate. He also made the point that weather is local and much of agriculture will be helped with El Nino. They kept trying to bring him to heel but each time he would revert to the effects of weather and El Nino being good for ag. I almost turned on the volume but continued with the CC.

Being able to report a new extreme event every single week is expected even if there is zero long term variability.

There are about 7,900 million people on the planet. If weather extremes were evenly distributed, that’s 79 once-in-century hottest months that affect a million people each year. Add in coldest, driest,, wettest, and windiest and you’ve got a new different once in a century event every single day of the year. Go by individual months (hottest June, July etc), and that goes up by a factor of 12. Alarmists will say ‘The UK has a lot more than a million people”, when you run the math it still comes out to 70 once-per-century events each year affecting a population the size of the UK.

Joe Bastardi illustrated it perfectly in his Saturday summary,

Says that the first week of July equaled the record for the lowest tropical storm activity at zero!
