Sorry to spoil your week's beginning with such a loathsome picture. However it is a face for climate disasters, isn't it? Disasters which according to her cohorts in Europe, are all your fault. "Extreme events" is the new phrase being added to the lexicon of "baffle with jargon" environmental scam novellettos.
As nature replenishes the dry aqua levels, following a prolonged and unusual dry spell, the climate loony brigade scramble for new words and propaganda to peddle their snake oil cure all rubbish. The UK Met Office frets about its environmental perceived superior credentials that garner them billions in grants and talks. Mega buck jobs for the boys are at stake as nature continues to make their puny efforts look as pathetic and stupid as they are.
Sure we are living through difficult weather periods. It's happened since the Earth was formed and will continue long after this selfish, undeserving creature that is mankind is gone. The very idea we can do something to change the Earth's cooling and eventual complete change is such idiocy. Can we alter the climate on Mars? Harness the Moon's energy for ourselves and Canute the tide. We have in modern politics and the corporate scam industry legions of Canute followers. Their one sole motive is to scare the beejesus out of the rest of us, in order to get money from us all under false pretences.
Above all else we are held to ransom over what are purely natural phenomena. If a fraction of the billions wasted on this whole scam was used to set up pipelines for water distribution, a harvesting strategy that saved more than the ONE per cent of rainfall and a few pounds of the millions given to wealthy land owners in exchange for wind turbine, crazy stupidity, we would pay half their borrowing already killing our future.

Now this paper/blog discusses what for OR is a significant issue never, ever mentioned by the climate Mafia. Obviously because it dwells on purely natural events unaffected, except possibly by nuclear testing, their fault not ours. However you will note it touches on jetstream changes and influences which, when mentioned in The Sunday Times, attempted to suggest those influences are AGW! Man the culprit rather than the minuscule victim!
So remember, when this expensive and dangerous environmental lobby harangue us all, their cause has only one grammatical justification. That is the second half of "environ(mental) and enjoy the wonders of nature, vagaries and all. The sun will shine again, just when is the unknown!
