Hi Max. I’d be obliged if you would post this “Cri du coeur” from “a reader who prefers to remain anonymous” . My family is facing destitution, and I seek advice from your readers, or, Agony Uncle Saxon.
Various of my relations are employed by the Met Office, DECC, CRU-UEA & the BBC. For years they’ve enjoyed a comfortable living creating Global-Warming scare stories, dispensing research-grants, absorbing research-grants and broadcasting university-confirmed scare stories.
On Christmas Eve, the Met Office had to release their latest findings, and were confident that at that time of the year, and, with virtually the whole of Britain on holiday, nobody would notice.
Sadly, a pesky blogger picked up the story on Sat 5th Jan. Bugger me, today Tue 8th Jan, the Beeb could no longer ignore the issue and tried, but failed miserably, to put a positive slant on the data.
Instead of pretending it’s the salvation of mankind from the horrors of Global Warming; the preferred exotic venues of IPCC conferences would be saved from the unstoppable rise in sea levels; one or two species of dormice + fake charities like WWF & Greenpeace would be saved from extinction – the Beeb repeated their corporate mantra to an ever-diminishing audience that ‘a model had been revised’.
As you will gather from this devastating news, our family gravy-train seems certain to be heading for the buffers.
Consequently I seek guidance from your vast & knowledgeable readership, and would elicit their two-penneth of suggestions (or even two-penneth of charity, to help mitigate the impending financial hardship.)
