The Big Pause

13 March 2019
Climate change

At www.thegwpf.com/china-and-the-pause/ … Chinese scientists say the hiatus in global warming is significant and real – and there are a lot more climate scientists in China than anywhere else. Li and Zha in 'Science of the Total Environment' have used satellite data to pin down the hiatus to 2001 and 2015 which is very significant. It divides the El Nino events of the late 20th century from the El Nino which kicked off in 2015. In other words, the only significant temperature rise has been during El Nino events which are entirely natural and have been occurring for centuries prior to the modern era. They are climatic events that are well recorded over the years – and that is all the global warmers have as evidence. That is also why they have to tinker with old temperature records – making the past cooler in order to show any sign of warming in the current period. Numerous studies have shown the Medieval Warm Period was as warm if not warmer than recent temperatures and in spite of the denial of AGW people (and politicised climate scientists) it was a global phenomenon. They tried to restrict it to the NJorth Atlantic as this was where most of the research was done in the 20th century but they forgot about the Antipodes and their university studies and definitely turned a blind eye to Russian and Chinese reseach. We now have lots of research data from South America, Africa, and Asia which shows fairly conclusively the MWP was a worldwide event – as common snense would allow. If it was consistenly warm over the North Atlantic it must have been elsewhere as clear skies do not geographical pegs in them – ie if sunlight beams through the atmosphere over Europe it is more than likely sunlight was able to beam brightly over the rest of the globe. Hence, more sunlight = more warmth.

At http://notrickszone.com/2019/03/07/new-study-reveals-the-arctic-region-w… … a new field study has revealed the climate in the Arctic region was much warmer in the 1930s than it is now – but we still get sea ice in the Arctic Ocean. Somebody is telling porkies. In spite of attempts to bury the 1930s warming by calibrating older temperatures to make them cooler (they are always calibrated downwards and never in the other direction) scientists in the field are still dredging up evidence that temperatures in the 1930s were much warmer than today. HH Lamb had plenty on this subject in his books but he is airbrushed out of climate science nowadays, even though he set up the University of East Anglia climate science department. It seems that researchers on Franz Josef Land in the Arctic circle, have been collecting evidence of temperatures there during the 19th and 20th centuries, and yes, it was a lot warmer in the 1930s than it is now. Well, knock me down with a feather.

A similar subject came up at https://wattsupwiththat.com/2019/03/09/auroral-evidence-of-upcoming-mini… … which has some nice anecdotal and historical information but it is probably a long shot to think it is going to get much colder.
