B-BBC contributor Alan also observes;
“5 Live’s ‘Morning Report’ races to inform the population of impending doom before their ignorance kills them……
‘The cost of flooding in the UK could rise to billions of pounds due to climate change by 2050….also there will be water shortages, drought and diseases.’ http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/console/b019pq64 (17 mins in)
And who do we get to advise us?.Craig Bennett from Friends of the Earth!
‘Food security will suffer, insurance premiums go up, a very different country by 2050…a wake up call …serious implications for our livelihoods
‘The BBC bod is clearly alReady persuaded of the need to have a low carbon economy and implement much bolder action …..
‘Does the average person on the street know what the future holds?….How do you persuade politicians to deal with this?’
Of course just what ‘This’ is is still not clear despite the absolute scientific consensus that driving your car to Tescos is killing Africans in climate change caused droughts and wars just as surely as if they were sucking on your exhaust pipe itself.
“In other news, a meteorite could hit Britain tomorrow, an expert claims.
“Professor Ernold Moonbat of the Institute of the Apocalypse says that the meteorite could wipe out the entire population or Earth and could cause interest rates to escalate, possibly causing billions of pounds worth of damage.
“This could be the end of civilisation as we know it. If a meteorite is nearby, then it could come close to Earth and might, if it were big enough, hit us, causing all manner of possible disasters.
“It might be disastrous, so if we don’t do anything now, we could run the risk of…(cont’d p94).”

Apologies: my possible hat-tip actually belongs to DB
The American expression might could would come in handy there.
One wonders what the ultimate cost of serious global cooling will be in the not too distant future, bearing in mind that government are preparing for a temperature change in the opposite direction…
I seem to remember the same doom mongers were predicting that by 2000 we’d have no ice caps and all be under 100 feet of water.
Is this why they moved to Salford then? To avoid the Thames soaking their chinos?
Didn`t they notice that Media City is by the canal…and it will suffer the Meseys fate if angry Scousers don`t sacrifice themselves as cheeky sandbags…like so many Jimmy Tarbucks!
Actually, I am waiting to see what the BBC’s next move is because the Climate Change debate is really being lost as we speak – see the Wall Street Journal – which was rabidly AGW until now –
Telegraph today – http://blogs.telegraph.co.uk/news/jamesdelingpole/100133247/children-just-arent-going-to-know-what-sun-is/
The Beeb is going to have to do something, they have believed in the one true way for so long now, every day they continue it really makes them look like fools!
‘The cost of flooding in the UK could rise to billions of pounds due to climate change by 2050….also there will be water shortages, drought ‘
Well which is it? Floods of water, or no water? Surely if there is flooding, there isn’t exactly a drought is there? Who writes this crap….
“End of Days” crap has been popular for thousands of years. The earliest surviving literary masterpiece was about (amongst other things) the world getting destroyed by a great flood.
They sure spared no time whipping up a rebuttal to the Met admission that there has been no actual warming for 15 years, and NASA’s new prediction that the Thames will freeze over in the not-too-distant future.
If the Thames does freeze over, Black and Harrabin should be tarred, feathered, and dragged across the ice in front of a crowd of license fee payers.
Even if it doesn’t, they should be dragged through the water in the same way. 🙂
Speaking of the CAGW fraud, take a look at the graph below, its from the met office which has released evidence of how much the planet has warmed in the last FIFTEEN YEARS.
Oooh, its a whopping 0.0c, its a disaster im tellin ya we all gonna drown and burn and die of thirst and heatstroke =-O .
The BBC has yet to acknowledge this evidence from the met office, nor will they any time this side of never. So the planet has not warmed in a decade and a half despite all the models from the super computers, the promises of the supposed consensus, the claims of lying scum like the world wild lies fund/greenpiss/fiends of the earth and their mouthpieces at the BBC.
You might remember our resident student of Lysenko and beeboid denier D Gregory claiming that he would be too frightened to do a report about the lack of warming as promised. Many times I have presented graphs and many times he appears as if by magic to claim they not good enough. If you are out there David take a look at the truth, at the evidence. How dya like them apples comrade?
The other graph shows the model predictions of that grotesque charlatan Hansen and the actual global temperature. These graphs expose the reality of the CAGW fraud, the lies and deceptions. But it also highlights the corruption of the BBC and how they are still trying deperately to hide the truth from us. The BBC are lying cheating scum.
The last graph shows solar cycles from the Dalton minimum to the LIA to the modern warming period and it shows that the modern warm is over and the new cold cycle has begun, we are heading for a mini or even a full blown ice age while the f*cking CAGW fraudsters claimed runaway warming. All this time the CAGW fraudsters have been squandering billions and billions on a fantasy global warming when it is natural cycles that rule our climate. This is the tragedy we know face, going into a mini ice age effectively broke and unprepared with fuel prices that are going to mean the deaths of tens of thousands of elderly and poor people.
The biggest villains of all are The Government and the Treasury, as sponsor of the green smokescreen for stealth taxation on “environmental grounds”, suckered as a consequence by the utopian communists of Greenpeace usurping or Energy Policy for the destruction of our economy. They surround themselves with handsomely rewarded placemen and liars , Sir Nicholas Stern arise, Sir John Houghton be upstanding, Chairman of the Met Office Robert Napier (ex-WWF) and Julia Slingo Chief Scientist, Sir Paul Nurse Royal Society stooge, cast of thousands, with the bBC as the Green Goebbels, Ministry of Propaganda. Never before has evil paid so well, or so often.
I liked this on Lubos Motl’s site:
There was something similar it yesterdays Guardian. They aired a report on how if Scotland gets independence there will be nowhere for British nuclear subs to be based and thus they would have to be scrapped.
The report was by….CND
The Jock plastic bravehearts wont be so keen on indpendence when their bonny Scotland lies under 1/2 mile of ice will they? When the ice age hits they will all be straight down to England.
