Met Office used Jet Engine Wake in 'Record Temperature' Claim

The Met Office hoaxed the public to push climate change.

It's been revealed that four of the five measuring stations that recorded temperatures over 4O°C in the UK on the afternoon of July 19th last year are subject to margin of error uncertainties up to 1°C, according to classifications set by the World Meteorological Organisation (WMO).

This includes the record reading of 40.3°C that just happened to be recorded on thermometers feet away from the runway of RAF Coningsby, directly in the wake of jets taking off. The findings are presented in recent research compiled by the climate blog Cliscep.

The claim by Britain's Met Office is that a record high temperature of 40.3°C was set at 3.12pm following a 'sudden jump' in temperature of 0.6°C in the previous two minutes. Sixty seconds later, the temperature fell back to 39.7°C. RAF Coningsby just happens to be the home to two squadrons of Typhoon jet fighters, with the temperature station placed as near to the runway as possible, capturing the wake of these jets as they take off.

Cliscep has marked three concentric circles at 10, 30 and 100 metres at RAF Coningsby, relevant to defining the WMO classification class. Coningsby is class 3 and subject to a margin of error up to 1°C. It fails class 2 because of hardstanding within the 30m radius.

According to Cliscep all five temperature stations used as 'evidence' for the Met Office claims that Britain experienced record temperatures last year were shown to be subject to heat contamination from non-climatic sources. Finding Met Offices temperature sites that are not prone to such contamination is not easy, but Cliscep did note that one exists at Harpenden where there are no human-made structures within 100 metres. While Coningsby to the north in Lincolnshire produced the claimed record high, Harpenden topped out at a normal 37.8°C.

The Typhoon has two turbofans that produce 90kN of thrust and these state of the art engines take the jet from standstill to twice the speed of sound in less than 30 seconds. The jet's two engines heat the air to over 1700 degrees Celsius (3092 degrees Fahrenheit) on take-off, blasting that super-heated air from the rear of the plane, drastically raising the temperature of the surrounding atmosphere. A surrounding atmosphere that, in the case of RAF Coningsby, just happens to have the weather station that recorded Britain's highest ever temperature in it.
