25 New Papers Confirm A Remarkably Stable Modern Climate: Fewer Intense Storms, Hurricanes, Droughts, Floods, Fires… It has by now become common practice for just about any and every unusual weather occurrence, extreme temperature anomaly, or seismic event to be somehow, someway linked to the human practice of using energy derived from fossil fuels.
No hurricane, flood, drought, storm, wildfire … is spared from potential anthropogenic implication. Last week, a named hurricane (Hermine) that ultimately devolved into a tropical storm landed along the Florida coast — the first landfall in 11 years. As expected, the usual suspects reflexively blamed the storm on humans. 17 New (2017) Scientific Papers Affirm Today’s Warming Is Not Global, Unprecedented, Or Remarkable. By Kenneth Richard on 26.
January 2017 A collection of 60 peer-reviewed scientific papers published in 2016 were displayed here last month in an article entitled, “The Hockey Stick Collapses: 60 New (2016) Scientific Papers Affirm Today’s Warming Isn’t Global, Unprecedented, Or Remarkable“. Each paper from the 2016 collection cast doubt on claims of an especially unusual global-scale warming during modern times.
Yes, some regions of the Earth have been warming in recent decades (i.e., the Arctic since the 1990s), or at some point in the last 100 years. Some regions have been cooling for decades at a time (i.e., the Arctic during the 1950s to 1980s, the Southern Ocean since 1979). Could A New Global Temperature Reconstruction Using Ice Cores Be More Accurate Than The Instrumental Record? In the early 1950s, the accepted scientific truth — as determined by thermometer records available at the time — was that global mean temperatures had risen by 0.7°C between 1860 and 1940.

Source here In a late February (2017) interview on a U.S. news program, mechanical engineer Bill Nye claimed that the settled science says humans have been warming the planet at a rate that is unnaturally and “catastrophically” fast since the year 1750 . “It’s a settled question. The speed that climate change is happening is caused by humans. Instead of climate change happening on timescales of millions of years or 15,000 years, it’s happening on the timescale of decades, and now years. … Humans are causing it [climate change] to happen catastrophically fast. Glacial Retreat Before 1910. The Jakobshavn glacier in Greenland retreated more than one foot per day from 1850 to 1903, while thinning by a “considerable extent.”
It was also reported that alpine glaciers were in general retreat, and “conclusively that the glaciers of Greenland are receding” 27 Jul 1903, Page 4 – at Newspapers.com. New Paper: Glacier Melt Rates Were Up To 3 Times Greater, Faster During Early 20th Century. By Kenneth Richard on 9.
February 2017 75% Of Total Modern Glacier Melt Occurred Before 1950 “[T]he retreat of the glaciers after about 1925 became rapid. The Deplorable Climate Science Blog. According to Gavin Schmidt, 1922 was one of the coldest years on record.
The Arctic was melting down and ice never formed along coasts of Spitzbergen. This year, ice extent is very close to “normal” and ice is rapidly forming around Spitzbergen. nsidc.org/data/seaice_index/images/daily_images/N_daily_extent.png. From #AGU14 Surprising findings in Greenland’s melt dynamics – glaciers retreated rapidly between 1900 and 1930. I’m at AGU 2014, thanks to the generous assistance of readers.
This is one of the presentations yesterday that caught my eye. One other thing I did notice was that in the poster sessions (which have doubled in size this year) have a lot to say about carbon soot in the Arctic and Southern Greenland as a driver of ice melt. Virtually indistinguishable – Comparing early 20th Century warming to late 20th Century warming. Guest essay by Andy May Many writers, including Professor Richard Lindzen and Ed Caryl have noticed the remarkable similarity in global warming observed from around 1910 to 1944 and 1975 to 2009.
The similarity in slopes exists in all global surface temperature datasets. Figure 1 shows the HadCRUT version 4 dataset and the NASA GISS land (GHCN v3) and ocean (ERSST v4) temperature dataset. Record Daily Temperature Fraud On The Rise. Besides the normal pack of lies from government agencies about temperature, one of the worst frauds is their claim that record daily temperatures are on the rise.
This is the exact opposite of what is happening. Using a stable set of stations, the number of daily maximum temperature records peaked in the 1930’s and have been generally declining ever since. The frequency of very hot summer days shows the same pattern. The average summer daily maximum temperature shows exactly the same pattern. The latitude of this group of stations is very stable, so there are no non-climatic effects for Zeke to whine about.
Cache of historical Arctic sea ice maps discovered. Arctic Sea ice data collected by DMI 1893-1961 Guest post by Frank Lansner I came across a number of maps showing Arctic ice extend from 1893 to 1961 collected by DMI in “Nautisk Meteorologisk Aarbog”. New Paper: 14 Scientists Affirm Solar Forcing, Not CO2, Is ‘Dominant Control’ For Modern Climate Change. One of the oft-stated “truths” for advocates of the position that humans are predominantly responsible for climate changes is that the Sun could not have played more than a negligible role in the global warming of the last few centuries. Indeed, the latest Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPPC) report theorizes that the long-term solar contribution to climate change has been slightly above zero. And yet today’s scientists have not been deterred in their quest to document a robust Sun-Climate link in the paleoclimate data… as well as in the temperature and climatic changes for recent decades.
In 2016 alone, for example, there were over 130 scientific papers documenting a non-negligible solar influence on climate. Climate scientist Dr. Jianyong Li, who has himself authored over 300 peer-reviewed scientific publications, continues this trend of linking climate changes to solar forcing. 18 New Papers Link High Solar Activity To Medieval And Modern Warmth, Low Solar Activity To Little Ice Age Cooling. “It is generally accepted that the climate warms during periods of strong solar activity (e.g., the Medieval Warm Period) and cools during periods of low solar activity (e.g., the Little Ice Age).” —Lyu et al., 2016 Within the last 1,000 years, global-scale surface temperatures underwent a warm period during Medieval times, centennial-scale cooling during the 14th to 19th centuries, and another warm period since the early 20th century.
According to scientists publishing in the peer-reviewed scientific literature within the last several months (2016), these long-term thermal changes are well correlated with long-term variations in solar activity, namely the Medieval Solar Maximum (Medieval Warm Period), Spörer, Maunder and Dalton Minimums (Little Ice Age), and Modern Grand Maximum (20th Century). Scientists Zharkova and colleagues (2015) provide a cogent summary with a user-friendly graphic denoting the solar changes and their correspondence with warming and cooling trends.
Chambers, 2016. Unprecedented? Central England Warming Of 1692 – 1737 Twice As Fast As Late 20th Century Warming! The Warmunists are fond of stating that the warming in the late twentieth century was unusual and unprecedented, and could only have been caused by rising CO2. They refuse to recognize that the early twentieth century warming was just as rapid. Of course that statement is also based on the lack of data for earlier times. But there ARE data for earlier times. Newly found weather records show 1930’s as being far worse than the present for extreme weather. Plot of NOAA/NCDC state high temperature records by decade with atmospheric CO2 concentration overlaid.
