In my opinion this entire sorry episode goes straight to the heart of the difference between the way alarmists like Williamson see the world, and the way normal people view the world. Alarmists seem to want their models, theories and opinions to be accepted as established fact. But the reality is their shaky theories are full of poorly supported conjecture and extrapolation.

Eric Worrall on WUWT, quoted by Dellers who has criticised Williamson's facile alarmism:

Weather agencies as Trojan horses. Radical meteorology! Lousy forecasts!

Tim Ball has created an interesting hypothesis: that weather agencies, such as the UK Met Office, were deliberately targeted to be Trojan horses for alarmism around CO2.  From there, the schools and the children and their teachers must have looked like sitting ducks.  They were.

Climate Distortions Were Achieved. National Weather Agencies Are The Trojan Horses


'Maurice Strong set up the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) through the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) to provide a powerful vehicle for almost complete control of climate science. Each national weather office perpetuates the deception that human CO2 is causing climate change. He controlled the science through the IPCC and the political and propaganda portion under the umbrella of the Rio Conference (1992) and the ongoing Conference of the Parties (COP). By peopling the IPCC with representatives of national weather offices, he attained control of the politics within each nation and collective global control. They’re the Trojan Horses  from which funding and research emanate to deceive the politicians and public into achieving his goal of destroying the industrialized nations.'

The article ends with:

'Maurice Strong built the Trojan Horses around material provided by national weather agencies. Too many scientists and bureaucrats were willing carpenters complicit in the construction and operation. Some of the cladding has been pulled off, but the skeleton remains. National weather agencies continue controlling the IPCC and all climate issues. They also continue to fail miserably with their forecasts. Despite millions spent on a new computer the UKMO predicted a mild winter and were quickly proved completely wrong. They were equally wrong in previous winter and summer forecasts with cheaper computers. They did the IPCC ‘trick’ by saying they don’t do long term forecasts, they are “outlooks”. Environment Canada has similar spectacular failures for which they invent 1984 type newspeak. A Globe and Mail headline last week announced, Environment Canada admits to ‘underforecasting’ snow by 1,000 per cent. The Trojan horse’s all have broken legs; it is time to put them down.'

I fail to see how you can 'put down' a weather agency.  But a root and branch reform, with new leaders and more freedom to follow science rather than ideology would be a good thing.  Perhaps if they just went back to weather forecasting, free from biased-models, that would suffice.

Meanwhile, in our schools the tragedy of misinforming and frightening the children will go on.
