Independent Censors Own Inconvenient Story!

Independent Censors Own Inconvenient Story!

The liberal media don’t just make fake news by what they report, but also by what they suppress. And they’re at it with Britain’s entirely seasonable and predictably snowy mid-January weather.


You must have heard their constant repetition that the heavy snow in Europe and the USA, and the seasonal dusting in Britain are due to “sudden atmospheric warming” over the Arctic. But have you seen or heard them mention that this has NOTHING to do with ‘climate change’ or global warming, and is just a normal part of the northern hemisphere’s winter weather process that has been going on for millennia?

No! We thought as much!

Even more blatant, as they scramble to ‘explain’ the cold winter weather by blaming ‘climate change’, they are all going along with the blatant dishonesty of the ultra-warmist Independent, which has censored its own web archive to shove a very inconvenient article down the Memory Hole.

Because for years you could instantly find online an article entitled Snowfalls are now just a thing of the past by Charles Onians, which appeared in the Independent back in 2000.

The global warming alarmist piece began:

“Snow is starting to disappear from our lives. Sledges, snowmen, snowballs and the excitement of waking to find that the stuff has settled outside are all a rapidly diminishing part of Britain’s culture, as warmer winters – which scientists are attributing to global climate change – produce not only fewer white Christmases, but fewer white Januaries and Februaries … Global warming, the heating of the atmosphere by increased amounts of industrial gases, is now accepted as a reality by the international community … However, the warming is so far manifesting itself more in winters which are less cold than in much hotter summers. According to Dr David Viner, a senior research scientist at the climatic research unit of the University of East Anglia, within a few years winter snowfall will become “a very rare and exciting event”. “Children just aren’t going to know what snow is,” he said.

All very embarrassing, of course, since nearly 20 years later all the papers are having to report Britain’s entirely normal winter weather, alongside the heavy falls of global warming in North America and parts of Europe.

Of course, it is theoretically just possible that, back in 2000, the climate change ‘scientists’ knew so much less about the workings of the world’s climate that they and their computer models got their predictions drastically wrong. And now, they might have learnt so much that they now understand EVERYTHING absolutely perfectly.

Theoretically possible, but you will remember the Met Office promising heavy snow and brutal temperatures in Britain within two weeks just after Christmas. These conditions still have not appeared (4 inches of snow on the Chilterns just doesn’t count as bad winter weather!) so we have to wonder why, when they can’t predict the weather with any accuracy even three weeks in advance, should we take any notice when they tell us what’s going to be happening twenty years into the future?
