British Parliament, November, 2012 …
… The Parliamentary Question that started this was put by Lord Donoughue on 8 November 2012.
The Question is as follows:
“To ask Her Majesty’s Government … whether they consider a rise in global temperature of 0.8 degrees Celsius since 1880 to be significant. [HL3050]”.
The question put by Lord Donohue to was whether global warming since 1850 was statistically significant.
Six times the question was put in the UK parliament and five times the answer was obfuscating spin about global warming without answering the question.
However on the sixth time an answer was forthcoming.
Global warming was not statistically significant.
This is an incredible breakthrough and the post by Doug at Bishop Hill is attached below in full (at link).
The issue here is the claim that “the temperature rise since about 1880 is statistically significant”, which was made by the Met Office in response to the original Question (HL3050).
The basis for that claim has now been effectively acknowledged to be untenable.
Possibly there is some other basis for the claim, but that seems extremely implausible: the claim does not seem to have any valid basis.
Plainly, then, the Met Office should now publicly withdraw the claim.
That is, the Met Office should admit that the warming shown by the global-temperature record since 1880 (or indeed 1850) might be reasonably attributed to natural random variation.
Game over. Give back the trillion$. The judge might go easy on you.
Australia’s BoM releases it’s Annual Climate Summary for 2012, but FAILS to document in their “Official Historic Record” the ONE climate event proves the BoM/ UN-IPCC junk climate science models WRONG.
ANNUAL CLIMATE SUMMARY 2012
The Annual Climate Summary 2012 report is the Bureau of Meteorology’s official historical record of the previous year’s climate.
It provides a national overview of temperate and rainfall during the year, and documents significant weather and climate events.
** The SIGNIFICANT WEATHER/CLIMATE EVENT the BoM LEFT OUT of it’s 2012 Climate Summary:

IT’S OFFICIAL! AUSTRALIA IS DROUGHT FREE
Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry Senator Joe Ludwig said the expiry of EC declarations in Bundarra and Eurobodalla next Monday marked a major milestone for agriculture in Australia.
“The extended period of drought – which made things tough for many on the land – is finally over,” Minister Ludwig said.
Remember, in Australia, weather IS NOW climate:
A few years ago, talking about weather and climate change in the same breath was a cardinal sin for scientists.
Now it has become impossible to have a conversation about the weather without discussing wider climate trends, according to researchers who prepared the Australian Climate Commission’s latest report.
Why would the BoM delete a climate event like a 12 year drought breaking climate event that it didn’t predict with it’s junk global warming science?
Because the Australian BoM is a Climate Fraudster.
The BoM are government funded climate tax frauds.
Jail these frauds.

New Zealand’s worst drought in 30 years is over
The drought has broken in New Zealand, marking an end to the driest period in 30 years.
