We’re getting used to idiot lefties in the media blaming every little disaster on climate change. When you buy a chippy tea and your chips are undercooked they’ll tell you it’s climate change; when the pizza is delivered and it’s soggy they tell you its down to climate change. Someone drops a smelly fart in a crowded lift, climate change of course; Manchester United’s pathetic form this season? Not the fault of Dave Moyes, it’s climate change.
And the smog, the terrible smog that was going to see streets filled with expired asthmatics among the used condoms and MacDonald’s packaging? Climate change. Only it wasn’t. These events have always happened.
Back in 1952 (though I don’t quite remember it) there was the great London fog which turned the capital into something that looked like the set of a horror film (a great improvement, older people remember).
And in the nineteenth century London existed under a pall of smoke from millions of open fires and industrial furnaces.
It wasn’t just London. L.S. Lowry made his reputation painting Manchester smog:

Smog is not uncommon. It becomes more visible when dust from the Sahara is added, but that is not new either. What we are seeing is the usual cognitive dissonance of the left, they are quick to claim “it’s only weather” when things happen that can be used to challenge the imminent social disaster myth being pushed by those supporting the globalist agenda, like, you know, ships on missions to chart the melting of antarctic ice getting stuck in the advancing antarctic ice, or the arctic ice in midsummer which we were told would have disappeared by 2012, not just being inconveniently still there but in fact expanding robustly in 2013, or the 50 million refugees dispaced by rising sea levels by 2012 eventually, because their non refugee status, having to be loaded onto a specially adapted Boeing 777 and disappeared over the Indian Ocean.
Yes, the mathematical models have failed to predict anything that has actually come true.

What all the above have in common apart from all being lies is that the authors of the comments and quotations used in reporting are from people who try to claim authority by labelling themselves “scientists”. The words science and scientist have become among the most abused in the English language. Science, from the latin “scienta” meaning knowledge can refer to any knowledge, not just knowing, having learned by rote, statistics and propaganda. In its modern usage, it means, “knowledge based on demonstrable and reproducible data ” OED, not as our scientist chums would have you believe, “Whatever someone who claims to be a scientist tells you.”
The Smog was an example of dodgy science, the science tits wanted it to be a climate change related disaster to please the people who hand out big chunks of taxpayer’s money in research grants. So they stretched and distorted the evidence to make this natural and fairly frequently occuring weather even appear climate change related. In other words they cheated. Par for the course.
from The Daily Telegraph:
High levels of air pollution occur in Britain, the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) admits, about five times a year. But the last time it issued a major public alert, according to Client Earth, an environmental law group that has successfully taken ministers to court over the pollution, was two years ago.
The time before that was in April 2011, and the one before that in 2008. Both the Coalition and its Labour predecessor are to blame. Indeed, high pollution levels that would normally have warranted a warning blighted the spring week of 2009 when Gordon Brown hosted the G20 summit, one of the buttresses of his claim to have saved the world economy: environmentalists strongly suspect that they were hushed up to save him embarrassment.
So now the killer smog that was supposed to be full of Zombies like a Steven Spielberg film was just another attempt at scaremongering by the globalists, who are really in desperate need of that $1trillion dollar carbon cap and trade market now that vigilant new media reporters have exposed their rigging of the Consolidated Debt Obligations business, the interest rate rigging scandal, the gold scam and the foreign currency trading fiddle.

When some alarmist starts spouting unscientific nonsense about climate catastrophe, you can be sure they are just a shill for the people who want green taxes. Life on earth has survived things a million times worse than a bit of smog.
