Despite the UK government and many councils recently proclaiming a "climate emergency", the scientific evidence shows this not to be the case.
I have written to my local city council (Wells), who proclaimed a "climate emergency" a few months past, asking how this emergency had manifested itself in Somerset. I received a reply quoting, "predictions from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)." Of course, this organisation does not deal with reality. For the last twenty years all of their dire predictions have failed. I have also written to my MP, no reply, and the Prime Minister, again no reply. These are the people who fawn over a sixteen-year-old Swedish girl, who apparently is an expert global climate change expert. I have words for these people, scientifically illiterate, unrealistic and perhaps even deluded.
Why doesn't the UK Met Office tell them what has happened to the UK weather over the last 20 years.
There are a lot of questions arising from these proclamations. What evidence do they have? Who supplied them with the data necessary to make those decisions? And how much is it going to cost?
As per the 21years weather data, charts show (Weather & Climate tab), the weather has been very stable for the whole of this 21-year period. There has been no statistically significant change in temperature, pressure, relative humidity, wind speed, rainfall volume, rainfall duration, or sunshine. Either the data supplier has been providing false information or their claims are evidence free.
If it is not weather, then what is the reason for this climate emergency? Perhaps it is based on the false carbon dioxide emissions theory, but as the chart comparing the rise of CO2 and UK temperature which shows there is a negative correlation. As such, carbon dioxide cannot increase temperature.
So, we have a NON-Climate Emergency and costing tax and energy payers huge amounts of money. The latest Net Zero Carbon initiative introduced and passed through the HoC recently is going to cost us, the UK taxpayers, well over £1trillion (£1,800 per household) for no effect on the climate whatsoever. These representatives are ignorant as they don't even know the difference between a solid (carbon) and the gas (carbon dioxide).
