As ever an excellent read from Caleb written at the end of August but very telling in discussing how the seas are behaving and acting upon our planet. Very interesting that the PDO had a flip to warm, which may rival the warm blob in the Pacific these past few years, during the late 50’s and early 60’s. That may well have supported the ridges and troughs that supported the vicious winter of 1962-63 which affected the whole planet. Certainly the cold Atlantic blob west of Portugal could well be involved in pulling the jetstream south leading to the current flooding there and conversely the massive pumps of heat we’ve experienced in Western Europe. Hubert Lamb noted some interesting developments that preceded that great winter and whilst it will not repeat we look for the rhyme. 🤔
The summer has been rather ordinary up at the Pole, (all Alarmist vs. Skeptic hoopla notwithstanding). The sea-ice remains at very low levels, which is to be expected with both the AMO and PDO in their “warm” phases.
Not that things are boring. There is always something fascinating going on at the Pole, partly because we know so little about that region. In essence we are all novices, (and don’t be fooled by certain men in white lab-coats who like to put on airs and pretend otherwise). We haven’t passed all the way through a single, entire cycle of the AMO since we started getting satellite observations, and are actually watching what occurs as the AMO moves from its “warm” phase to its “cold” phase for the very first time.
What gets boring is having to deal with the drag of politics. The really spectacular claims of Alarmists, (that the…
