Surprising Summer Chill Baffles Global Warming Alarmists

From the “summer colds are the worst” department

Guest essay by Vijay Jayaraj

A surprising late-June chill broke records for lowest temperatures and made life miserable for many across the world. From Denver, Colorado, in the United States, to Melbourne in Australia, the mercury dropped precipitously.

Many people in Colorado woke up to what would be the state’s coldest first day of summer in 90 years. Up to two feet of snow fell in some places, making authorities issue a winter weather advisory on the first day of summer. Denver especially has been at the center of focus. Record cold caught city dwellers off guard. This year has been the “city’s coldest start to a calendar year since 1983.”

The National Weather Service reported the coldest maximum temperature during the second half of June since 1992 at Chicago’s O’Hare Airport, and news outlets reported that it was unusual for the windy city to experience such low temperatures in the beginning of summer. 

On the other side of the world, Australia saw many cities record their coldest first few weeks of winter. Melbourne, on June 23, recorded its lowest maximum for the date since 1985.

And back in the Northern Hemisphere, central England experienced similar historic lows in June, although the temperature was forecasted to pick up the following week due to a heatwave.

But the cooling observed is not just limited to the surface temperatures.

There has been a remarkable cooling in the global oceans, especially the Atlantic and the Pacific. This was totally unexpected, as scientists had forecast a strong warming in the oceans for this month, a weather condition called El Niño.

Experts are divided on what this cold phase actually points to. It might be just a one-off, localized, short-term weather phenomenon, or it might reflect a longer, global-scale climate shift.

Either way it contradicts alarmists’ claims of a warming world. If it were a mere weather phenomenon, then it would mean global warming would result in cold phases (like those in June, May, and earlier months this year), not warmer phases, as claimed by the alarmists. That means climate change will result in cold phases like the ones we’ve been observing in the past two years.

In contrast, if these cold phases are an indicator of a longer climatic shift, then there is no drastic warming but a global cooling.

We might be headed to what NASA describes as a period of “solar minimum,” with temperatures akin to the Little Ice Age that froze Northern Europe in the 16th century.

In its official June 12 communication, NASA stated, “The Sun’s activity rises and falls in an 11-year cycle. The forecast for the next solar cycle says it will be the weakest of the last 200 years. The maximum of this next cycle – measured in terms of sunspot number, a standard measure of solar activity level – could be 30 to 50% lower than the most recent one.”

Regardless of whether these cold phases are precursors to a longer cooling period or not, late-June cooling (like similar cooling periods in the past two years) certainly runs contrary to the claim that the world is getting hotter or warmer every year.

After the brief spike in temperatures during the El Niño-driven warmth of 2016, temperatures have fallen globally. This post-2016 two-year cooling resonates and coheres with the overall lull in the warming that scientists have observed during the past two decades, in which spikes in global temperature occurred only when El Niño was active. 

It will be interesting to observe how the summer plays out and whether the solar inactivity predicted by NASA will make the 2019–20 winter colder than the ones before.

On the first day of summer, the snow at Squaw Valley was in mid winter form. They will be closing this weekend. If they didn’t have significant maintenance to do on the Funitel, they could stay open a lot longer. Mammoth will be open until August and possibly beyond. BTW, record late closings for the KT22 ‘mothership’ lift have occurred in 2 of the last 3 years and 3 of only 6 times they had enough snow to be open in July have occurred since 2011. This is a far more statistically valid trend than anything the IPCC concocts.

Although, the recent summer cold spell is no more surprising to me than a warm spell in winter. If the climate system didn’t so things like this, it would surely be broken.

I hope you are being sarcastic. 2016 had that honor thanks to the super El Nino, but since then we have been in a strong cooling trend. It has been tempered by the current El Nino but with that ending this past week I look for the strong cooling to return.

Agreed. And look what happens to yours when you put it in a reasonable, human-relateable temperature and time scale. Assuming the anomalies were in C.. they should now be at about 60 F with a top line of random noise at 120 F and a bottom line of random noise at 0 F.

I only wish I could put in the error bars… what do you think +/- 1 F? +/- 2 F? 3? You can find any graph you want in that mess. So much precision from so little accuracy. Dithering.

Looks pretty safe to me. I’m going outside! Enjoy the weather!

It is worth remembering that Europe does not expect extreme heat. Unlike the US very few have air-conditioning in offices, schools, homes.
Secondly the humidity in Europe is likely much higher than other places that get extreme heat. It is after all a green and pleasant place!.

Worth looking at is this wiki page showing the danger levels with heat and humidity.

The entire eastern US is a “green and pleasant” place.
And in many areas almost no one has AC.
Most schools are not air conditioned in the northern US.
None of the older buildings are.
But portable and window AC units can be bought anywhere for as little as $100 these days, and work fine for cooling a single room.
The use pennies of power a day.
Europe is not in any way special or unique, the people not uniquely delicate or prone to instant death from warm weather.
They may be more given to histrionics.

Unbubble.eu is also very good, but returns far fewer hits. Try them out. Main problem with yandex is that “news” searches give you results mostly in Russian, but website searches work fine for Anglophones. Google was the best ever in 2008, but changed their policy or algorithm in 2009 and now it has limited utility. For website searches, Yandex seems to be the best now.

There was a small debate going on in our household this morning (in the middle of France) as to whether it was legitimate to describe drowning as a result of swimming where you shouldn’t in the heatwave or as a result simply of going swimming when you wouldn’t if it wasn’t hot should be counted as deaths due to the heatwave.

They wouldn’t, would they?

They should be counted, along with details of their demise. In 1911, 200 people around NYC died that way and many more by heat stroke, etc. Of course, today AC exists and it inexpensive enough to prevent most such deaths.

https://www.history.com/news/heat-wave-1911-weather-insane

In 1821, 200,000 people supposedly died in France due to heat but I cannot find a good reference. It seems that search engines are adjusting the past.

Or possibly it didn’t happen. As far as I can tell this claim is based on a single sentence in a local American newspaper written 80 years after the event. So far I’ve been unable to find anything relating to 1821 that would support this, and I suspect 200,000 people dying from heat would have left soe sort of record.

I’d be interested if there is any truth to this, but the lack of any evidence so far makes me skeptical. Easier to believe a journalist made up a sensational claim, than there is a mssive conspiracy to remove it from history.

Have you read Zharkova’s (note spelling) latest paper?

“This trend is anticipated to continue in the next six centuries that can lead to a further natural increase of the terrestrial temperature by more than 2.5 °C by 2600.”

https://www.nature.com/articles/s41598-019-45584-3

Add anthropogenic increases and we have serious problem.

Here is an earlier comment by her.

“However, Zharkova ends with a word of warning: not about the cold but about humanity’s attitude toward the environment during the minimum. We must not ignore the effects of global warming and assume that it isn’t happening. “The Sun buys us time to stop these carbon emissions,” Zharkova says. The next minimum might give the Earth a chance to reduce adverse effects from global warming.”

There was a hiatus for some 15 years, but when zooming out, all trends point up at the climatological 30 year span. Don’t cling on what happened between e.g. 2002 and 2014.

The logic that El Nino doesnt count is wrong. Of course you can remove the El Nino cycle, what is left is still a modest warming for the last 30 years.

Hugs, there is warming over the last 30 years even without El Nino but that warming appears to be the result of the AMO going into its positive phase in the early to mid 1990s.

I believe it was Santer et al 2014 (figure 2) that showed the only warming occurred from 1990-1995 once volcanic and ENSO effects were removed.

I don’t keep up with it, so I don’t know if this is normal or not, but 4 volcanoes (Popocatépetl, Raikoke, Ulawun, Manam) have erupted in that last 10 days or so, sending ash plumes 40,000 to 60,000 ft. high. Supposedly, greater than 33,000 ft. has a cooling effect. A hypothesis states that an increase in muons (generated by cosmic rays) triggers explosive eruptions in volcanoes with silica-rich magmas (muons can penetrate the earth up to several kilometers). If true and eruptions continue or increase we could be in for a wild ride in terms of cooling.

In the South island of New Zealand we have enjoyed calm stable conditions with very little wind for a few weeks with moderate temps. This is a direct result of cooler tropical area not disturbing the SH vortex.

I am informed the “heat wave” is today it will reach an incredible 30 deg C possibly 31 in London.
Tomorrow after the heat wave it will be summer as usual at low 20s deg C.

The heat plume hitting parts of southern and central Europe coming off the Sahara is far from unusual, but according to all the news reports it is…”unprecedented.”
One of the “experts” even wove in the line. “This is what we are expecting to see with global warming, just as we are seeing record melt in the Arctic and record loss if ice in the Antarctic”
The loss of ice in the Antarctic spooked me, as it is winter down there so I must check it out….any guesses?

In _The Chilling Stars_, Svensmark and Calder describe how the Solar/GCR theory can handily explain this phenomenon.

Your might wish to check what CERN says about GCRs.

“A considerable fraction of nucleation involves ions, but the relatively weak dependence on ion concentrations indicates that for the processes studied, variations in cosmic ray intensity do not appreciably affect climate through nucleation in the present-day atmosphere.”

You kind of lost me, I don’t consider 27 C warm let alone hot. Presently were I am at it 41 C and will see 44 C later today of it cools down to 27 C tonight that would be nice. I have to admit I once though that 27 was warn and 32 C was hot, Presently my home town is about 2900 K from here is presently 19 C which is cold even there for them,a normal high would be around 27C. Looking at further they will be in the 27C latter today. When I grew up I saw 41 C there and 32 C was common, from what my brother tells me that is 32C is no so common any more, the unaltered temperature records do show that.

It has started to warm up here in Oklahoma. It looks like the summer heat is finally settling in. It’s supposed to be about 95F today, heat index of 103F.

But it will be a good summer because we have plenty of moisture in the soil and we only have until around the middle of August when the serious heat from summer will break, In warmer times, it could get in the 90’s around here as early as March, and no rain, and during years like that, it was a long time getting to the middle of August. Sometimes that kind of weather pattern would hold for more than one year and we would be realtively hot and dry for two years straight. That’s the kind of weather that causes real hardships. Fortunately, we haven’t had that kind of weathe since about 2010, which was a seriously hot year around here, as hot as any I can remember. Fortunately it only lasted for that year. Then we had the Big Rains!

The jet stream has been changing its focus to the upper third of the U.S., focusing storms there and allowing the southern states to warm up. This is normal for this time of year.

Weather patterns are SO interesting! 🙂 The jet streams are the key to understanding weather patterns, as my tv weatherman from the past, Gary Shore, used to teach.

It’s not “just a couple of hot days in the south of France”. Virtually whole of France is having what is in many places record heat FOR JUNE. Four départements in the south are under a red warning for the first time, though admittedly that system is not all that old.

I’m not suggesting anything except that this is weather but it’s a bit freakish for this month. August would be a different matter.

My wife and I have spent the first three weeks of June in the province of Tarragona, Catalonia in Spain for the past 15 years. This year, although the weather was generally very good – lots of sunshine, it was much cooler than usual. Typically on sunny days it was 22’c rather than the usual 28’c. We didn’t switch on the air conditioning once, that was a first. On the one rainy day (Tuesday 11th), we visited a nearby town, driving back to our property in mid afternoon the car’s thermometer didn’t rise above 14’c. We have never seen afternoon temperatures that low before. But the media are getting excited about a couple of days of high temperatures.

It must be global warming. The alarmists never deny that the whole thing is caused because (they contend) more atmospheric CO2 traps more heat. Are they then going to say that more heat doesn’t make it hotter? No. In fact they say we can’t let the heat rise exceed 1.5C.

A 1.5C rise in temperatures, by itself, isn’t at all scary. It would probably be net beneficial. So, they have to posit sea level rise and increased storm damage. That’s why they started calling it climate change.

It has been warmer than this during recorded history. ie. we have the written records of those who experienced that warmth. The evidence is that extra warmth brings prosperity. Warmer is Richer. You could argue that warmth brings more storms, or not. The net effect, however, is hugely beneficial.

So, it’s global warming and it’s good.

For example, in my little part of the world, I have enjoyed a perfectly nice day for the time of year, temperature about average and no wind or rain. But it has been the worst pleasant day ever!

Heatwaves are caused when high-pressure weather systems sit over one location for a period of time. The longer the high-pressure system sits there, the warmer and drier it gets underneath.

The alarmists apparently want us to believe that CO2 causes that high-pressure system to sit over a location and heat it up. The alarmists don’t explain how this connection could be made, they want us to take it on faith.

I would like the alarmists to explain to us how CO2 is in command of the way high-pressure systems behave, and where they stop, and for how long. Because that’s what they are saying when they claim the heatwave in France is caused by human-caused global warming (CAGW).

The heatwave is actually caused by a slow-moving high-pressure system and CO2 has nothing to do with it. When the high-pressure system moves out, the temperatures will fall. Simple. No CO2 reductions required.

It wasn’t cold everywhere, or anywhere near everywhere, not even everywhere in the contiguous US. The Southeast and South Central US was warmer than not.al in June and May. There was a persistent jet stream dip in the Rockies, and one of the results of it near the warm humid air in the Southeast and South Central US was the storm hyperactivity of May and early June. And the Central US is much warmer than normal now.

NH sea ice is quite low for the time of year according to Arctic Roos at https://arctic-roos.org/observations/ice-area-and-extent-in-arctic Area is barely lowest for the time of year, and second lowest is 2012. Extent (area of ice and water combined in areas with ice concentration at least 15%) is in a 3-way tie for 2nd place with 2017 and 2012, with first place which is barely less being 2016. Both extent and area are falling faster than they have done on average this time of year during the era of monitoring with satellites made for this (1981 onward).

SH sea ice is also lately running at close to record low for the time of year. With both NH and SH sea ice being close to or pushing record lows, NH sea ice area and extent falling faster than average, and a major heatwave in Europe and a minor one in much of the US, and sea surface temperature anomaly being significantly warm in most of the world’s oceans, I think the planet is not on the cool side lately. I expect the UAH TLT global temperature anomaly for June to be released very soon, and I also expect that it will be close to its May 2019 number of +.32 degree C above the UAH baseline of 1981-2010 average.

The world is a global village, and the TV and internet are its agora, where people go and shout their beliefs.
On the European side of the word there is a heat wave up to Poland. In Greece we are having a temperate June, but the weather reports on TV are enamored with heat, and talk of the maxima in found in cities.

Have you heard of hubris? ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hubris )

>Hubris (/ˈhjuːbrɪs/, from ancient Greek ὕβρις) describes a personality quality of extreme or foolish pride or dangerous overconfidence, often in combination with (or synonymous with) arrogance. In its ancient Greek context, it typically describes behavior that defies the norms of behavior or challenges the gods, and which in turn brings about the downfall, or nemesis, of the perpetrator of hubris. The adjectival form of the noun hubris is “hubristic”.

I think that is the state of the religion of global-warming/climate-change, and I hope that nemesis does not take over.

They have other “alternative” theories too, for example, that *reducing* (rather than increasing) the temperature difference between the equatorial and higher latitude regions will make the climate more volatile. This “theory” reverses both mainstream meteorology and the experiences of billions of people every winter, yet somehow it is the AGW skeptics and not the climate cultists who are the “science deniers.” Yet the more hoops they have to jump through to explain away reality, the more the mainstream media and establishment politicians repeat that “the world is getting warmer” and “the science is settled” and “97% of climate scientists agree, so shut up!” ad nauseam.

As many others here have mentioned, we’ll soon experience at least 30-years of global cooling when the Pacific, Atlantic and Arctic oceans all enter their respective 30-year ocean cool cycles as occurred: 1880~1910, and 1945~1978.

Moreover, additional global cooling will occur because of the 50-year Grand Solar Minimum, which just started.

It’s also very interesting to observe that the strongest 63-year string of solar cycles in 11,400 years occurred during a Grand Solar Maximum (GSM) event from 1933~1996.

When the GSM ended in 1996, the global warming trend also suddenly stopped from June 1996 to June 2015 (aka the Hiatus), despite 30% of all manmade CO2 emissions since 1750 being emitted during the Hiatus, which suggests sunspot activity, ENSO, and 30-year ocean cycles are the primary drivers of climate, not weak-sauce CO2.

The Hiatus was interrupted when the 2015/16 Super El Niño event occurred, but next year’s La Niña cycle will be a strong one, and will negate most of the lingering affects of the 2015/16 Super El Niño warming spike.

It seems highly likely that by 2026, a 30-year cooling/flat trend will reappear (starting from 1996), and will continue off and on for at least 30+ years as the cooling effects of 30-year ocean cool cycles, and a 50-year Grand Solar Minimum continue.

June 29, 2019 12:09 am

Europe is small, so a big HIGH, cantered over North Africa can easily
cause warm air to cover most of the Western part of Europe.

Here in Australia we get the same effect, Australia is about the same size
as all of Europe, and has a large desert area. So during the summer we can
get a North wind and the hot air from the desert will come down to the South
of the continent.

In the summer its unpleasant, in the winter of course its very nice.

Its all called weather, climate is a 30 year average.

Perhaps a Scottish respelling of bauchle “to disgrace publicly” (especially a perjured knight), which is probably related to French bafouer “to abuse, hoodwink” (16c.), possibly from baf, a natural sound of disgust, like bah (compare German baff machen “to flabbergast”). The original sense is obsolete. Meaning “defeat someone’s efforts, frustrate by interposing obstacles or difficulties” is from 1670s. Related: Baffled; baffling.”

Why 1981 to 2010? Why not the full length of all recorded measurements?

The NRCS Snotel sites (annual precipitation for irrigation purposes in the western us) also use that range for the average when they have data up to and including this year.

Why would you stop updating your data to the most complete information available?

It is called CHERRY PICKING. 30 years is a magical MINIMUM for climate change, not the end-all be-all unless it suites someone’s needs.

And when speaking of climate, why would 30 years be long enough when known ocean cycles are far longer than that. Why not 100 years? 500 years? Oh, because we only have 30 years of VALID data? But if the documented adjustments for old temperature data in the US had not been done and if the US had run the old and new sites simultaneously for 5 years or so when the sites were relocated of methods changed, we would have, at least in the US, over 100 years of valid data.

Thanks Anthony, for showing the faulty nature of so many of the current sites, and in many cases the step wise changes in temperatures when the changes in locations and/or methods occurred. And again, it seems, always to higher temperatures.

Drake asked, “And when speaking of climate, why would 30 years be long enough”—It is not long enough. 30 years is used because it is a sort of bare minimum number to get real statistical significance when analyzing data that plot a Gaussian distribution. Problem is, weather data are not “normally” distributed. That problem is inconvenient, so they just ignore it. They ignore lots of inconvenient truths. The political agenda came first (transfer power from accountable national institutions to unaccountable international institutions), then the theory that would justify the agenda came second, and all data must either fit the theory or be ignored. Not conspiracy theory, just the history of the movement. The left has been discussing this option at least since socialist economist Robert Heilbroner wrote _The Human Prospect_ in 1950, and unabashed one-world-government proponent Maurice Strong finally seized the initiative to turn the dream into an active, UN-sponsored project in 1990, although some of the groundwork for the project was laid by activists working since at least 1976.

1st day of Summer 6/21/2019: overnight temp was 52F; 50F at 6AM; 66F and sunny at noon; 59F by 9PM. I had the furnace running all day. Cats were chilled, went under the fleece blankets on the bed.

In the sunny south-east of England it is quite warm and at 1300 BST my patio thermometer which is in a corner on a wall and currently well out of the sun until later in the day it is 84F. There is a bit of an easterly breeze but that doesn’t affect the thermometer. All 3 models on Ventusky have the temperature falling way back down tomorrow so this is not a heatwave but just one warm sunny day. The last couple of days have been sunny but with a very strong easterly wind which has made the evenings very cool, especially in the country where I live. In fact driving home from the southern outskirts of Greater London last night, I had a bit of heat on in my van.

Actually the whole of Western Europe is currently in a searing heatwave, courtesy of air coming straight up from the Sahara. All time record highs have been recorded in Spain and France.

This should not blind the other European feature of 2019, namely the highest snowpack at the end of May for nearly 50 years. That is clearly melting very rapidly as we speak and end of June figures will not be close to a record.

So the biggest feature is high divergence from mean weather, in both directions.

June 29, 2019 5:49 am

This is the first article that touches on my point for which I haven’t been able to get much traction even from sceptics, and even though my prediction that NOAA’s forecast of an El Nino (however modest) was not going to develop because of the lack of warm water volume in the ITCZ!

Moreover, I identified a new mechanism at work and have been hitting this since before the 2015/16 El Nino happened, and that is the switch from “persistent hot blobs” in the temperate zones to “persistent cold blobs” and the slanting equatorward of cold water from these blobs to cool the Enso “boxes” instead of the usual simple upwelling of cold water in the eastern Pacific. This is what caused the record 0.5C plunge from the peak of the El Nino which I described in a few posts here. NOAA’s forecast of the “coming El Nino (and even Bob Tisdale’s) seemed uninformed of these glaring changes.

Now, having said this, I think Vijay’s article is a bit unfocused and hops and jumps to cool spots somewhat in the way our torrid world proponents do with hot spots. But, he is onto something important climatologically although he is only expressing wonder in the article. The persistent cold water distribution is a noteworthy phenomenon.

Let me predict the agencies got the active Huricane season dead wrong, the ENSO is going cold and the persistent cold blobs will be additive to an ENSO global cooling. I can’t see how it could be avoided.

Combined with the smoke from the coastal forest fires that has drifted into the region, the press here and much of the population are seeing this as proof of global warming! The truth is, while progress is being made, we still don’t really have a good handle on how the sun’s energy is distributed around the globe, let alone enough information to model it accurately! We are far from “Settled Science”!

Fergie, fair enough, it ain’t simple and it ain’t settled. The hot weather you are experiencing in southcentral AK is likely inpart “return” air from the south, from a ‘polar vortex’ over the rest of the continent that never really quit from last winter. Blizzards in the Rockies in late June (Denver, etc) and temperatures in the 60s and 70sFs in Texas and California are part of this.

My thoughts are that Enso is cooling because of all the cold water heading equatorward, and given a multimonth lag in its effect on global avg temperatures, we have much of this cooling to look forward to. If the “cold blobs” stick around, too, they will add to it. Anyway my predictions are out there for the better known effects of this cold water.

Bellman

And back in the Northern Hemisphere, central England experienced similar historic lows in June, although the temperature was forecasted to pick up the following week due to a heatwave.

I’m not sure what you mean by “historic lows”. The first two weeks of June were on the cool side, but hardly historically low. The linked article quotes a provisional CET to the 14th of 12.6C. Assuming the adjusted figure will be a bit lower than this, it still makes the start of June about the same as 2015, and warmer than 2012 and 2001. Equal third coolest this century is hardly historically low.

Up until that date you mention CET was said to be the 16th coolest in the 350 year CET record.

So I doubt if June will turn out to be anything but pretty warm

Yes, that’s what the alarmist article linked in the head post says. But that’s comparing the first 2 weeks of June this year with the average for the entire month of previous years.

Using the daily CET and comparing with just the first 14 days of each June shows this year to be around 40th coolest since 1772. The exact position will depend on the official daily figures.

Even if the final June figure had been 12.6°C, it would still have hardly been historically low. 1991 was only 12.1°C, so at best this would have been the coldest in almost 30 years. As it happens it’s looking like June will be over 14°C, making it warmer than 2011, 2012, 2013 and probably 2015.

I think your last sentence is wrong though. June 2019 is not going to be pretty warm, it’s going to be a bit below average, but not an “historic low”.

Even if it was one of the coldest Junes on record it would not prove an ice age was immenent. You can find several places where an exceptionally cold June is followed the next year by an exceptionally hot one, and visa-versa. English weather is very fickle.

And make no mistake about it; temperature correlates very well with solar irradiation, and has almost no correlation with carbon dioxide.

These are the “stains” of heat associated with the increase of ionization by the GCR. Galactic radiation always works in the background of solar radiation. In periods of low solar activity, GCR grows strongly in the lower stratosphere. Ionization in the geomagnetic field leads to “heat stains” in the stratosphere.

There has been a remarkable cooling in the global oceans, especially the Atlantic and the Pacific. This was totally unexpected, as scientists had forecast a strong warming in the oceans for this month, a weather condition called El Niño.

Since last year, I’ve expected an ENSO downturn like the one experienced during the last solar minimum years.

The last big sunspot TSI action created first a CDAS global SST downtrend that lasted until May 11, then an uptrend over several solar rotations until that finally ended with a large TSI drop, represented by TSIS in red, on June 15.

That TSI downtrend had the effect of shutting down the previous warming period in the equatorial ocean until TSI rebounded again, driving a temporary warmup in the central Pacific, now shut down again by the fall in TSI last week.

The surface flux from those old sunspots in turning into earth-facing position again now, so we’ll see what’s left in terms of the TSI bump the remaining flux produces.

By watching this for some time I have discerned that larger and longer duration TSI spikes are absorbed into heat deeper into the ocean, energy that takes 10-14 days to upwell, compared to half the time for smaller TSI spikes.

It will be interesting to observe how the summer plays out and whether the solar inactivity predicted by NASA will make the 2019–20 winter colder than the ones before.

Until the new cycle perks up I predict cooling and hard winters with more ice & snow records. I expect our Great Lakes to really freeze up again like last winter in an early and long cold winter.

It’s amusing to read Bob Weber predicting “cooling and hard winters with more ice & snow records” and expecting “our Great Lakes to really freeze up again like last winter in an early and long cold winter”.

Because here in Northeastern Germany, we experienced in 2017/18 and 2018/19 two non-winters in sequence, nearly no snow at all, and with an incredibly warm summer inbetween. We never spent so many water to keep the garden alive in the 20 years before!

I therefore suppose that Bob’s predictions and expectations are restricted to Northern America. But that is no more than 6% of Earth’s land surfaces.

Bindidon all the snow shovelling and the long unbroken cold duration in NA last winter were not amusing. As a general rule of thumb, warming or cooling is generally not universal, ie, one-sided extremes are rarely seen everywhere simultaneously. Germany probably won’t be so warm this winter – your luck will eventually run out – we can talk about that again in 6-8 months.

I won’t restrict next winter’s forecast to just NA as parts of Asia also had a hard winter last time, meanwhile the solar output hasn’t changed much since last winter.

“After the brief spike in temperatures during the El Niño-driven warmth of 2016, temperatures have fallen globally. This post-2016 two-year cooling resonates and coheres with the overall lull in the warming that scientists have observed during the past two decades, in which spikes in global temperature occurred only when El Niño was active.”

Well before writing that, I would prefer to await Roy Spencer’s data for the next 6 months.
