Shortening Northern Europe Summers…August Temperatures Have Been Cooling Since, JMA Data Suggest. Late summers have been cooling across far northern Europe…September: Finland braces for one of its coldest this century, mercury drops to -6.4°C By Kirye and Pierre Last month we looked at July mean temperature data from the stations in northern Europe for which the Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA) have enough data and found northern Europe (Norway, Sweden and Finland) had seen no mid summer warming in 20 years. Now the JMA has the data for the same stations for August. Again the trends show late summer has been cooling, and not warming. What follows are the trends for Finland since 1996: Data: JMA In Finland, all six stations for which the JMA has sufficient data show a slight to notable cooling since 1996. Sweden Next we look at Sweden, home of teen climate doomsday alarmist, Greta Thunberg: Poor Greta has seen her summers cool.

Norway Finally we look at the trends at 11 stations in Norway: Seven of of 11 stations in Norway have seen cooling. And how is September, 2021, shaping up? Greta Thunberg’s Scandinavia Has Seen August Cooling Trend Over The Past Quarter Century. By P Gosselin on 13. September 2020 By Kirye and Pierre Gosselin Today we plot the Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA) data for Northern Europe for the month of August, 2020. We have selected this region because it is the home of 17-year old climate alarmist/activist Greta Thunberg, who thinks the planet is heating up rapidly and so we’re all doomed.

We plot the data for the stations for which the JMA has sufficient data going back over 2 decades. First we plot the August data for Sweden, Greta’s home country: Data: JMA Five of the 6 stations plotted show a cooling trend. Next we examine Norway, Greta’s western neighbor: Data: JMA Here we see 6 of the 11 stations have seen an August cooling trend over the past quarter century. The story is similar in Finland (further from the Atlantic), but here the colder stations have cooled, while the warmer stations have warmed slightly – but statistically insignificantly: Four of the six stations in Ireland have been cooling in August.

JMA (Unaltered) Data Show Far Northern Europe February Mean Temperatures Are Not Warming. By Kirye and Pierre We just looked at snow cover over the northern hemisphere for the first day of spring, and instead we see winter is still very much in action. The rapid global warming seems to be taking its time getting here as winter lingers on. Today we take a look at February data from far northern Europe countries. First we look at the stations in Sweden for which the Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA) has sufficient data going back to 1988: Data: JMA Four of the 5 stations examined show February mean temperatures cooling or remaining stable, suggesting winters are ending earlier and earlier. Finland Moving east to Finland, we look at the mean February temperature from JMA data from 6 stations: In a warming world, mid winter should also be warming, right? The northernmost stations in Finland have been showing modest cooling since 1988, while the warmer locations have shown slight warming.

Nothing alarming is happening in Finland. Norway Ireland. Data From German Mountain Stations Show Winters Have Been Getting COLDER Over Past 30 Years! In a new information video at FMD’s TV-Channel, man-made climate warming skeptic Günther Aigner analyzes winter temperatures at four German mountain stations over 1000 m altitudes at different locations in Germany. Hat-tip: Die kalte Sonne here. The stations are located at Feldberg (1493 m) in southwest Germany, Brocken in northern Germany (1152 m), Fichtelberg in eastern Germany (1215 m) and Großer Arber in southeast Germany (1456 m). These 4 stations are sited well away from urban influences. Oscillating trend Aigner clearly highlights the strong variability of temperatures, which we see do not correlate at all with rising atmospheric CO2 concentrations. The clearly oscillating trend seen at the four stations over the past decades likely have much more to do with the natural AMO and NAO ocean cycles, which directly impact Western Europe’s winter weather patterns.

Today as cool as 40 years ago! The chart presented below shows the mean winter temperature of the 4 stations combined. Fading Warming…More Cooling: Winters At Austria’s Ischgler Idalpe Have Become 1.3°C COLDER Over Past 30 Years! Good news for skiers: winters at Austria’s Ischgler Idalpe have become colder over the past 30 years By Die kalte Sonne (Text translated by P Gosselin) New report shows Austrian winters have ignored global warming. Image cropped Zukunft Skisport. The Austrian Paznaun is a valley in the far west of North Tyrol with an altitude of 900-1800 meters above sea level.

The region thrives on tourism, especially skiing, which generates more than 2 million overnight stays annually. What are the current trends? Here is the short version of what he found: The winters in the Paznaun since 1895: An analysis of official winter temperature and snow measurement seriesThe winters on the Ischgler Idalpe have become colder in the past 30 years. Despite Mild Winter, Central Europe’s 30-Year Winter Temperature Trend Still Cooling. By P Gosselin on 13. March 2019 The European Institute for Climate and Energy (EIKE) here presents two charts which I’m featuring today.

They show that the winter temperature trend for Germany over the past 32 years is not cooperating with “experts'” forecasts of rapid warming and snow and ice becoming a thing of the past. The first chart, using the data from Germany’s DWD national weather service, shows that wintertime mean temperature trend in Germany has not risen in 32 years: The green trendline shows that although CO2 in the atmosphere globally has increased from about 350 ppm since 1988 to about 412 ppm currently, Germany’s mean winter temperature has fallen a bit. France winters cooling The story is true for much of France as well.

However, we acknowledge the trend has been decreasing (to normal levels) since about 2000. Central Europe January Hasn’t Seen Any Warming In 30 Years. Rural Areas Have Cooled Markedly. By Die kalte Sonne, Josef Kowatsch (Translated, edited by P. Gosselin) The German DWD national weather service reports that the January 2021 mean temperature for Germany was 0.6 degrees Celsius, which is 1.1 degrees above the value of the old reference period 1961 to 1990. But compared to the current and warmer reference period of 1991 to 2020, the anomaly was -0.3 degrees. The above chart shows the trend for the last 30 years for mean January temperature.

Chart: Josef Kowatsch Since the DWD began recording data in 1881, January has become 2.1°C warmer according to the trend line. However, it must be taken into account that the year in which the DWD records began was during a cold period; the end of the Little Ice Age, which did not actually come to an end until around 1900. Germany’s mean January temperatures since 1881. And when we remove the last 20 years of the Little Ice Age, this is what the trend looks like: The graph shows only a small increase of about 1°K.

Germany’s UHI. UK Brexits Global Warming, Has Been Cooling Off Since Long Before Greta Was Born. By P Gosselin on 27. March 2021 By Kirye and Pierre Winters across the United Kingdom of Britain appear to have worsened over the past two decades, contradicting earlier warnings they would warm and snow would become rare. Due to its geographic location in the the northeast Atlantic, temperature trends in Great Britain have significance. February 2021 temperature data for the UK are available from the Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA), which means we can plot the latest DJF winter mean temperature data point. UK February hasn’t warmed since 1992 First we begin by plotting the latest February mean temperatures for the stations with sufficient JMA data: Data: JMA.

Most stations have seen February trending cooler, or almost flat. But February is only one month. No warming since long before Greta was born What follows are the mean DJF winter temperatures for the 14 stations plotted above, since 1998: Data source: JMA. Little annual warming Source: WUWT. “Global Warming” Leaves Ireland In The Cold …Emerald Island Has Been Cooling Over Past 3 Decades! By Kirye As today is St.

Patricks Day, it’s a good time to look at Ireland’s annual mean temperatures over the recent decades. As we recall, global cooling was the scare of the 1970s before global warming became the scare in the 1980s. So since the 1980s, a fair amount of warming must have taken place, right? No. Ireland has been cooling Looking at 6 stations (half at airports!) Data: JMA Obviously global warming never made it to the island. The source of the (untampered) plotted data is the Japan Meteorology Agency (JMA). 30 years of cooling The non-warming trend of the 6 Irish stations goes back to 1986, i.e. more than 30 years: There has not been any warming since 1986, thus surpassing the 30-year mean that is defined as “climate”.

Cooling since Hansen’s 1988 warnings of warming When did the Irish cooldown start? Plotting the data since Dr. If the Irish can celebrate anything this St. Happy St. ===============================Pierre Gosselin contributed to this article.
