As we say in our Company Statement, we will challenge companies, governments and politicians where we believe they are damaging the Earth or the people that inhabit it – in respect of climate change, the environment etc. In this case it’s the Conservative manifesto that deserves our wrath, with hardly anything in it to tackle poor air quality beyond planting a few more trees.
Up to 40,000 people die of air pollution every year in the UK due to poor air quality and poisonous gases being released into the atmosphere. The Conservative Party is paying lip-service to a very serious problem and that is plainly not good enough.
The full story can be read in the Independent ariticle below, but if you have a vote and care about the environment, when it comes to it think very carefully who deserves your vote.
As we move towards the end of May and the start of Corbyn (sorry a little joke), meant to say June; the UK looks as if it’s set for a period of mostly settled, warm > very warm weather with plenty of sunshine.
Temperatures will steadily rise across all parts as the week unravels, with top temps of 20-23 deg C for northern parts and 25/26 deg C set for southern parts – perhaps as high as 28 deg C in the odd spot.
However, enjoy it whilst you can as scattered thundery showers are likely to show their hand as the heat rises.
London Wheat (Nov 17) is predicted to fall, as the deficit of rainfall in the spring to-date comes to wet end. Jim Dale, senior risk meteorologist at BWS said “There has been a signifiant rise in the London Wheat price since the dearth of rainfall in early April and the threat of prolonged drought. However, looking forward that will certainly come to an end, with a relatively cool and unsettled outlook until the month’s end. Unless other factors come into play, I can see only a fall in the current price of 141.50 per metric tonne.
This Wednesday (17th) will see copious rainfall for the main wheat growing areas of the UK - making up for the monthly deficit in one foul swoop.
The world’s largest study of the impact of weather on football is on the verge of completion.
British Weather Services studied approximately 10,000 matches from the five major European football leagues over the past decade and married the weather conditions against all aspects of football – including results, goals scored, corners and cards.
Adrian Crocker, chief sports meteorologist at BWS said, “This is the largest ever research into what happens when weather plays a part in football matches. What we have found does not divert greatly from what we already know from previous studies, but this much larger study more than rubber stamps what we might expect when it’s wet, hot, freezing, windy, humid and of course when the weather is clement.”
The data will be made available to selected bookmakers and betting syndicates who value such forensic information, but certain bullet points will also be released on social media.
As part of the British Weather Services Legal Weather Consultancy service, insurers, individuals, the police and legal firms can now receive a FREE initial check of the facts – to ensure each and every case is watertight at the outset.
Jim Dale the founder of BWS, says “There a number of weather impact cases that simply fall at the first fence – wrong date, wrong weather, wrong claim. This free service is designed to ensure money is not spent unnecessarily, only to disappoint down the line.”

March 2017 has seen more active tornados in the US than at anytime since the Spring of 2008. More than 300 tornados of varying sizes have plagued the usual spawning grounds, and as we head into April that volatile mixture of humid very warm air from the Gulf of Mexico and the colder dryer air from the Rockies and Canadian interior looks set to continue. If the current atmospheric status remains the same, expect some very damaging tornado incidents through this month, with Tornado Alley the main spawning ground.
At British Weather Services we have 7.4 billion reasons why Trump, and for that matter The Sun, UKIP and all other doubters are wholly wrong to oppose the Paris Climate Change Agreement and promote the false belief that man-made climate change is unreal.
Politics has strayed into science and the well being of the Earth that we all live upon, so we have taken the decision to stray into politics and stand-up against the dinosaurs, the ignorant and the wanton destroyers.
