They can't help themselves

To many in the warmist set the recent floods have been a Godsend, finally a vindication that their ludicrous religion has some basis in fact rather than their fevered imaginations (and computer predictions)
And predictably we have money grabbing politicians piling in to declare it must be so and we'll spend your cash on a snark hunt because it's not your money but ours to do with what we want.
BBC.
Climate change is now an issue of national security with extreme weather threatening homes, livelihoods and businesses, Ed Miliband has warned.
In an interview with the Observer, the Labour leader said the country was sleepwalking towards a crisis.
This, he said, was because of a failure to recognise that climate change was causing the storms and floods.
His comments come as flooding is still expected in many parts of the country despite a let-up in the stormy weather.
There are 14 severe flood warnings - indicating a "danger to life" - for south-east England close to the River Thames and two for the Somerset Levels, which have experienced weeks of flooding.
 Pretty much all a pack of lies, the flooding in the Somerset levels was a result of an EU environmental diktat which meant the silt from the channels couldn't be put back on the land so the UK government via the environment agency decided not to bother. In essence it was environmentalists who caused the flooding there by adding into the EU diktat a set of conditions that could not be economically met.
As for climate change causing the flooding, well as usual Millipede E has jumped the gun...
Mail.
One of the Met Office’s most senior experts yesterday made a dramatic intervention in the climate change debate by insisting there is no link between the storms that have battered Britain and global warming.
Mat Collins, a Professor in climate systems at Exeter University, said the storms have been driven by the jet stream – the high-speed current of air that girdles the globe – which has been ‘stuck’ further south than usual.
Professor Collins told The Mail on Sunday: ‘There is no evidence that global warming can cause the jet stream to get stuck in the way it has this winter. If this is due to climate change, it is outside our knowledge.’
In other words just bad luck and piss poor flood defences coupled with building on a flood plain.
You can be sure the warmist enviroloons will ignore the Met Office as Professor Collins views will be ignored in their rush to try and prove their point and grab more cash off us.
Sadly this lack of ethics is something we've come to expect from the watermelons as well as the Labour party.
It's all a cash grab and will be wasted on stuff we neither want nor need...

Quite. Henry Porter is banging this drum in the Guardian. Climate changes. it always has and always will. I'll start worrying when it stops changing because the sun has gone super nova.

As is usual, the bandwagon jumpers see an opportunity to mike even more money out of us.

I used to live on a narrowboat and until the EU got involved, BW would dredge the canal and simply put the dredgings back on the fields from whence it came. The farmers encouraged this, as they were getting their soil back ,and it had been enriched by all the leaves and other plant debris that had fallen in. Then it became classified as toxic waste and had to be carted off to special dump sites with all the appropriate paperwork. All at huge cost which BW could not afford and so the dredging virtually stopped.

Wonderful post. I've linked to at mine. As for the jet stream, it can move and does, weather systems, not create them.

"Climate change is now an issue of national security" is the most worrying statement I have ever seen from Millipede he really lives in cloud cuckoo land if he genuinely believes this statement.
The 50 Al Qaeda "Syrian freedom fighters" who have just returned to the UK from Syria are far more of a security threat than bloody imaginary climate change.
My father told me some 10 years ago that his father now long passed away was talking about this and collection clippings from Newspapers 50 years ago. My father and his father(a highly intelligent man and a maths master) said then that the whole thing was a massive lie and a scam, the trouble is that people have become less intelligent, easier to hoodwink and more gullible.
If global warming was a myth 50 years ago surely it must STILL be a myth because the basic science then was the same as it is now.
