N. Atlantic SST Plunging

One to watch. Thanks Ron

Science Matters

RAPID Array measuring North Atlantic SSTs.

For the last few years, observers have been speculating about when the North Atlantic will start the next phase shift from warm to cold.

An example is this report in May 2015 The Atlantic is entering a cool phase that will change the world’s weather by Gerald McCarthy and Evan Haigh of the RAPID Atlantic monitoring project. Excerpts in italics with my bolds.

This is known as the Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation (AMO), and the transition between its positive and negative phases can be very rapid. For example, Atlantic temperatures declined by 0.1ºC per decade from the 1940s to the 1970s. By comparison, global surface warming is estimated at 0.5ºC per century – a rate twice as slow.

In many parts of the world, the AMO has been linked with decade-long temperature and rainfall trends. Certainly – and perhaps…

Writing About Climate Change Makes Journalists Tired And Stupid

NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT

By Paul Homewood

There was a time when the Mail published serious articles on climate change by the likes of David Rose.

Now we get idiotic pieces like this one from Sophie Law:

Surging levels of greenhouse gases could make people tired, forgetful and stupid, scientists claim.

Afternoon fatigue, the slump that office workers often experience, could become a worldwide problem due to surging levels in carbon dioxide.

A factor in sick building syndrome is higher carbon dioxide levels in poorly ventilated workplaces which can make workers feel lethargic, low in energy and slow, The Sunday Times reported.

But increased levels of carbon dioxide could not just affect office workers but the entire population by the end of the century, according to scientists at University College London.

BBC’s Latest Heatwave Lies

A static block of high pressure that had halterneck before in a cooling world…of course its climate change and its got nothing to do with mankind (although the UHI is of course). #FakeNews

NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT

The BBC are happy to trumpet the latest misleading propaganda from the Met Office:

Climate change has significantly boosted the chances of having summer heatwaves in the UK.

A Met Office study says that the record-breaking heat seen in 2018 was made about 30 times more likely because of emissions from human activity.

Without warming the odds of a UK heatwave in any given year were less than half a percent.

But a changing climate means this has risen to 12%, or about once every eight years.

The blazing summer of 2018 was the joint warmest for the UK.

It tied with 1976, 2003 and 2006 for being the highest since records began in 1910.

The steep temperatures that sustained across most parts of the UK, peaked on July 27 when 35.6C was recorded at Felsham in Suffolk.

Now researchers have analysed the observed…

Wintertime Arctic sea ice growth slows long-term decline: NASA

Tallbloke's Talkshop

Arctic sea ice [image credit: cbc.ca]
Yes, it does say ‘slows’. There’s some rather convoluted logic about the present and future of Arctic sea ice going on here. Good luck to readers who think they can unravel it. But NASA does have to concede there’s a winter negative feedback going on, while doing its best to downplay possible consequences so as to keep the usual warming obsessions afloat.

New NASA research has found that increases in the rate at which Arctic sea ice grows in the winter may have partially slowed down the decline of the Arctic sea ice cover.

As temperatures in the Arctic have warmed at double the pace of the rest of the planet, the expanse of frozen seawater that blankets the Arctic Ocean and neighboring seas has shrunk and thinned over the past three decades.

Climate Hypocrite Sanders Spent $300K On Private Jets In One Month

For me, not for thee… Part 2791 😑

NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’s re-election campaign spent just under $300,000 on private jet use in October, Federal Election Commission (FEC) records show.

The Sanders campaign, which is funded primarily by small-dollar donors, paid Apollo Jets $297,685.50 on Oct. 10, FEC records reveal. The payment was marked for “transportation.”

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) participates in a news conference on climate change, on Capitol Hill April 27, 2017 in Washington, DC. Senators introduce “The 100 by ’50 Act” climate legislation that would completely phase out the use of fossil fuels in the United States by 2050. (Photo by Mark Wilson/Getty Images)

“This expense was for transportation for the senator’s 9-day, 9-state tour to support Democratic candidates up and down the ballot ahead of Election Day,” campaign spokeswoman Arianna Jones told local website VtDigger.com, which first reported on the jet expenses.

“This cost covered the entirety of the tour from…

UKCP18–The Met Office’s New Junk Climate Projections

The green shots of recovery are just around the corner… or the next one… the computer generated GIGO models told me so.

NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT

By Paul Homewood

As promised, the low down on the newly published UK Climate Projections 2018 from the Met Office:

The UK’s most comprehensive picture yet of how the climate could change over the next century has been launched today by Environment Secretary Michael Gove.

The UK Climate Projections 2018 (UKCP18) include:

  • UK’s most comprehensive projections of climate change
  • Data gives most detailed picture yet of temperature, rainfall and sea level rise over next century
  • Cutting-edge science to help businesses and homes plan for the future

Using the latest science from the Met Office and around the world, the UK Climate Projections 2018 illustrate a range of future climate scenarios until 2100 – showing increasing summer temperatures, more extreme weather and rising sea levels are all on the horizon and urgent international action is needed.

To help homes and businesses plan for the future, the results set out…
