UAH Global Temperature Update for November 2020: +0.53 deg. C

Reposted from Dr. Roy Spencer’s Blog

December 1st, 2020 by Roy W. Spencer, Ph. D.

The Version 6.0 global average lower tropospheric temperature (LT) anomaly for November, 2020 was +0.53 deg. C, essentially unchanged from the October, 2020 value of +0.54 deg. C.

The linear warming trend since January, 1979 remains at +0.14 C/decade (+0.12 C/decade over the global-averaged oceans, and +0.19 C/decade over global-averaged land).

For comparison, the CDAS global surface temperature anomaly for the last 30 days at Weatherbell.com was +0.52 deg. C.

With La Nina in the Pacific now officially started, it will take several months for that surface cooling to be fully realized in the tropospheric temperatures. Typically, La Nina minimum temperatures (and El Nino maximum temperatures) show up around February, March, or April. The tropical (20N-20S) temperature anomaly for November was +0.29 deg. C, which is lower than it has been in over 2 years.

In contrast, the Arctic saw the warmest November (1.38 deg. C) in the 42 year satellite record, exceeding the previous record of 1.22 deg. C in 1996.

Various regional LT departures from the 30-year (1981-2010) average for the last 23 months are:

I doubt that I can post this comment before the griffbot starts crowing about the Arctic anomaly being the warmest since 1979. Just bear in mind what the average maximum temperature is in the Arctic during November. Does this imply melting? Think!
(Obviously not expecting griff to think or deviate from his agitprop).

It’s people like Griff that shot the scales from my eyes regarding the climate Scientology.
I would like him to know that.

As the earth warmed a bit from the 40s-70s cooling period, the sea ice extent started to decrease after 1979.
No one contests that, warming period.
Contest is, is it natural or human caused?

Climate scientists seized on this and predicted the end for the polar bears, culminating with that disgusting Greenpeace commercial of polar bears falling out of the sky and dying horrible deaths.

But, all objective evidence shows the bears loving it, 3-5 times as many bears as there used to be, definitely no negative impact.

Now a climate scientist would stop and say they may have made a mistake, need to re-evaluate.

But no, like Griff they just push out the timeline of when the decreasing summer extent of sea ice MUST destroy the bears.

And so they become climate scientologists.

So thanks Griff, people like you are the reason I am a skeptic

NASA’s GISTEMP hasn’t updated their Land Ocean Temperature Index (LOTI) for November, maybe in two weeks or so it will be out. Anyway, so far in 2020 January through October they have averaged 330 changes each month. Since 2003 the average number of changes to LOTI’s November data has been 304 with a range of 7 to 755. Since 1997 the changes to LOTI have produced a moderate increase in the global warming trend of about 0.25°C per century:

Probably a week. But, if you’re curious, TempLS usually gets almost the same surface temperature result as GISS, using unadjusted land data, and is out now. It was a very warm November, just behind November 2015, and up by 0.18°C from October. Unless December is very cool, 2020 will be the warmest year in the TempLS record.

Nick, we are in a warming trend for the last 170 years or so, and as such, it should come as no great surprise that recent years have been the warmest in the empirical record. The issue is two fold, is it a problem? And is it due to CO2?

For me personally, Milwaukee is enjoying warmer winter nights, and cooler summer afternoons. That’s true for much of the United States, and probably true for a lot of other places. Not to put too fine a point on it, I am sick and tired of the bullshit that the so-called mains stream media spews endlessly on this issue.

I’m the guy sitting at the card table in the public square with the sign that says, “CO2 Is Not A Problem, Change my mind.”

I like that!

I would like to see that sign appear everywhere there is a public discussion of Human-caused Climate Change. Show one to your local politician if he decides it’s a good idea to promote a carbon dioxide tax, or some other foolishness related to CO2.

A sign like that will quickly demonstrate that proponents of Human-caused Climate Change don’t have the facts to support their position. Assuming they deign to take part in the discussion.

Atmospheric Entanglement

The lowest ozone value above the Arctic – NHPC >60N (Northern Hemisphere Polar Cap) is on the 27th of September
The lowest ozone value above the Antarctic – SHPC > 60S (Southern Hemisphere Polar Cap) is on the 30th of September.
Why – Because they are both responding to the same pressure displacement from the low latitudes.

Your chart is recording only one of the byproducts of high volume low latitude convection – no more – no less.

Notice how NASA Ozonewatch and associates are silent at the moment…. They have no answers.

I think it’s clear that one weak solar cycle is not enough to offset warming. The stepladder continues to ratchet up, though at a benign/diminishing rate.

While SW radiation may drive the warming in the indo-pac, the greenhouse effect likely reduces cooling as the heat accumulates and is then released during el Nino events (plus some additional heat from clear daytime skies during el nino).

It’s been 2 weak cycles, a question, will it be 20?

Global warming or cooling takes a long time.
We are living in an Ice Age, to not live in an Ice Age requires a warmer ocean.
During our Ice Age the average temperature of ocean stays within the range of 1 to 5 C
and that is a cold ocean. We have been falling into Ice Age for 10 million year, or before this Earth had a warmer ocean than 5 C and had earlier warmer periods with ocean above 10 C.
Our ocean average temperature presently is about 3.5 C and within our Ice Age [within hundreds of thousands of years] the it’s been 4 C or warmer and within last 1/2 million years, the Ice Age has been the coldest it’s been for hundreds of millions of years, and recently in terms centuries, the Little Ice Age has been the coldest for thousands of years, and Little Ice Age dipped to an ocean temperature by about .2 C cooler or about 3.3 C.
If our present recovery from coldest times of LIA AND a 5000 years trend of decline and if ocean were warms to 4 C, one should see, an ice free polar ice in the summer. And might see ice free winter {or hardly any polar ice ice form in the winter].
It’s considered that in the earlier part of our Holocene [Holocene climatic optimum] there wasn’t polar sea ice during the summer. And during the Holocene climatic optimum the world’s greatest forest [Taiga] was even larger than it is presently.
{Or I guess one could say, we had tundra shortage during Holocene climatic optimum- and I guess one also say, a desert shortage, globally}.
What Wiki says:
” The Holocene Climate Optimum warm event consisted of increases of up to 4 °C near the North Pole (in one study, winter warming of 3 to 9 °C and summer of 2 to 6 °C in northern central Siberia). Northwestern Europe experienced warming, but there was cooling in Southern Europe. The average temperature change appears to have declined rapidly with latitude and so essentially no change in mean temperature is reported at low and middle latitudes. Tropical reefs tend to show temperature increases of less than 1 °C; the tropical ocean surface at the Great Barrier Reef about 5350 years ago was 1 °C warmer and enriched in 18O by 0.5 per mil relative to modern seawater. In terms of the global average, temperatures were probably warmer than now (depending on estimates of latitude dependence and seasonality in response patterns).”

The recent super El Niño step was similar in size and slightly smaller than the 1998 step, despite a much larger increase in greenhouse gases during a similar timeframe. As Spencer states, the long-term rate is .14° per decade, about half of what’s needed for costs to ever exceed the benefits.

TheFinalNail, ocean effects are often longer lasting than our simple metrics. The ocean warming from the latest El Nino persisted for several month and has just recently started to fade. Same thing happened after the 2016 El Nino. Easily seen in the data.

https://woodfortrees.org/plot/hadsst3gl/from:2014/to/plot/hadsst3gl/from:2014/to:2018.1/trend

Now watch the SST trend head down as the oceans cool. UAH will soon follow.

This makes 2020 the 2nd warmest November in the UAH record, only 0.02°C below the previous record set last year.

Of the 11 months so far of 2020, 6 have been 2nd warmest for their respective calendar month, and unless something truly spectacular happens in December, 2020 is very likely to be the 2nd warmest year in the UAH history. This will put it somewhere between 1998 and 2016.

No. Depends what you mean by imminent. If you mean next year, possibly, but in our case, temps could peak for 30-40 years before starting to fall. We need to wait at least another 10 years before commenting with any kind of conviction. Keep the dustbin lid closed.

Before that 2015 El Nino, Arctic trend was basically dead flat this century. (since 1998 El Nino)

The 1998 El Nino didn’t cause a spike in the Arctic, The step change was actually in 1995

And yes the Arctic WAS COOLING between the 1979/80 El Nino and that step change

comment image

Interestingly, If you look at this graph

You can see a slight step up in 2005, followed by COOLING, then another slight step up in 2010, followed by COOLING, then a big step, followed by COOLING.

This is definitely NOT a signature of CO2 warming.

There is actually NO SIGN of any CO2 warming in any un-corrupted data.

Well, since you asked, a few other trivia facts:

The last 7 Novembers, starting in 2014 have all been in the top 9 warmest Novembers.

November 1990 set a record at the time of 0.25°C. This record would only be beaten nineteen years later in 2009, and then only by 0.02°C. The last 6 years have all beaten it, the last two times by more than 0.25°C.

Once 2020 is completed, 18 of the 20 warmest years will have been in the 21st century. Six of the 10 warmest years will have been in the last ten years.

If you are after broader point, this does suggest we have had an unusually long run of hot years even given the warming trend. But I’m not suggesting this marks an acceleration in the warming rate, it’s just an interesting counterpoint to those arguing global warming stopped as soon as they saw a few years below the trend.

Be VERY GLAD of the slight but highly beneficial NATURAL warming out of the LIA, Coldest period in 10,000 years

BE VERY GLAD the temperature didn’t go the other way.

BTW, Warming in the last 40 years is ONLY from El Nino releases of solar forced ocean warming.

Apart from UHI effects smeared across the whole of the surface data, and the large but “not-real” data adjustments…….

There is no warming that can be attributed scientifically to human anything.

No warming, just a zig-zag, from 1980 -1997 … No warming from 2001-2015

Average anomaly 1980-1997: -0.104°C
Average anomaly 2001-2015: +0.137°C
Average anomaly 2017-2020: + 0.393°C

Your claim is that all this warming is caused by El Niños. I’d like to understand how a big El Niño in 1998 causes a decades long change in global temperatures, rather than just dissipating as my primitive notion of physics suggest is should.

Of course that is where you would start if you wanted to cherry-pick to show a warming trend

I’m starting there because that’s where Spencer and Christie decided to start the satellite data. I’m only commenting on the UAH data, because that’s the only data WUWT regularly publishes, possibly because it shows the least amount of warming. If you have a problem with UAH being used maybe you could take it up with this site rather than me. But I expect any data showing a longer time period will be rejected by you as well.

Still running away from posting empirical evidence of warming by atmospheric CO2, I see.

I try to avoid these silly games because I’m not a scientist, anything I say is likely to be simplistic or misleading. And, I know this game of asking for “empirical” evidence and then tearing any evidence as not being “empirical” enough, or not actually proving something – hence my question as to what sort of empirical evidence would convince you. Judging by some of your comments below, it’s obvious the answer is nothing as you believe you are in a war against the theory.

However, if you do really want some empirical evidence that increasing atmospheric CO2 can cause an increase global temperatures, the obvious evidence is that as we’ve increased atmospheric CO2 temperatures have increased. Indeed, looking just at UAH, there’s a clear, statistically significant correlation between annual temperatures and CO2 levels.

Of course, none of this is proof. Correlation doesn’t mean causation etc. But it is evidence, which is what you asked for.

Did you mean sunspot numbers? Are you using a ‘model’ (choke!) to extrapolate TSI from sunspot numbers? What is your source?

In any event I’m puzzled by your point. You say that TSI is currently the highest since the 17th century and that explains why warming is continuing, yet your graph shows TSI over the last 30 years as being comparable to the late 18th century and mid 19th century, when temperatures were much colder.

I hope I didn’t give the impression that I know stuff. I know very little of the actual science. I really have little knowledge of how TSI is measured or how much of an effect it has on temperatures.

But I do know that when someone is asked to provide a source for some data, instead tells people they’re ignorant and should find the source for themselves, that’s probably a good sign they don’t have much confidence in their own source.

Those single peaks in the late 18th century and mid 19th century caused some of the warming out of the LIA…

What data are you using for the LIA temperatures? Those peaks in TSI don’t seem to have any correspondence with warming in CET. Temperatures where falling rapidly after 1740, at the time your data shows TSI rising for example.

As to the data, I merely mentioned that the author regards it as “unofficial”. It’s his best guess of what the TSI was in the past few centuries, based on various assumptions like any model.

See is wasn’t that hard for you to do you own homework, no was it.

You see, the general idea is that if you provide data, you should be able to tell people what the source was, rather than forcing them to guess.

Yes, which is why you were asked what your source was – the particular reconstruction you used differs quite a lot from others, and there’s no reason to suppose your preferred model is better than any other.

Now we’ve established what data you are using, all that remains is for you to demonstrate how the TSI levels can explain the current warming.

You might want to check your dictionary under the word “yes”.

The question you don’t seem to understand is to what extent small variations in the suns total output change global temperatures, and whether they can explain all of the current warming.

I pointed out your “most up-to-date” data didn’t support the point you were trying to make, now you agree that older out of date data supported your case more.

All this really says to me is that there’s a lot of uncertainty in estimating historical TSI, which is hardly surprising. If there’s a particular data set you’d prefer I used to check your point, let me know. In the mean time I’ll stick with the Kopp data, just because I’ve already downloaded it.

[[The linear warming trend since January, 1979 remains at +0.14 C/decade (+0.12 C/decade over the global-averaged oceans, and +0.19 C/decade over global-averaged land).]]

So, IPCC-brainwashed scientists found a pony in the manure.

+0.14/decade? How can such accuracy be attained from satellites?

I quote Wikipedia:

[[Infrared radiation can be used to measure both the temperature of the surface (using “window” wavelengths to which the atmosphere is transparent), and the temperature of the atmosphere (using wavelengths for which the atmosphere is not transparent, or measuring cloud top temperatures in infrared windows).

[[Satellites used to retrieve surface temperatures via measurement of thermal infrared in general require cloud-free conditions. Some of the instruments include the Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR), Along Track Scanning Radiometers (AASTR), Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS), the Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIS), and the ACE Fourier Transform Spectrometer (ACE‐FTS) on the Canadian SCISAT-1 satellite.. Over land the retrieval of temperature from radiances is harder, because of inhomogeneities in the surface.]] – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Satellite_temperature_measurements

Duh, how does Spencer get global average temperatures(GATs) for even one day from such spotty unreliable coverage, much less a decade-long average accurate to two decimal places? I suspect that there is no pony in the manure, just a strong desire to find one to make one’s life work have meaning. It would have been more honest and done more good to work all those years in health care.

Physics prohibits gases from emitting Planck radiation that can be used to determine temperature. The surface is solid and emits it, as do water droplets in clouds, but the cloud temperatures are made frigid by the thermodynamic lapse rate and bear little relation to surface temperatures. Any real measurement of surface temperature requires clear air from the measurement surface to space, which is very iffy, so it seems very hard to believe that the temperatures for the entire globe can ever be measured at one time. It looks to me like the year-by-year GAT is really flat within experimental error and the rest is like using a Ouija Board to obtain messages from the beyond and thinking it’s your dear dead mother because she said you get tire tracks in your underwear regularly.

Either way, atmospheric CO2 can’t raise Earth surface temperatures even 0.01C with its weak 15 micron photons that have a Planck radiation temperature of -80C like dry ice. It can’t even interfere with the surface heat deposited by the Sun that stays within a normal range of -50C to +50C. If there were any real but minor GAT increase over the decades, it can’t be CO2 but must be something else, which the IPCC hasn’t been looking for because they might find it and ruin their political program. Meanwhile the horrible leftist-run U.N. IPCC octopus is plotting to rob the world of hundreds of trillions of dollars, as per WUWT’s own article:

https://wattsupwiththat.com/2020/12/05/climate-activists-100-150-trillion-over-30-years-to-fix-global-warming/

http://www.historyscoper.com/whatisenvironmentalismideology.html

After this announcement all kibbutzing talk of how accusing IPCC of leftism is wrong is pure manure sans ponies. Manwhile Spencer and his IPCC-appeasing pals are letting them destroy the world’s future without a fight by giving the IPCC global warming hoax even one iota of credence. We all know that most of that money will be used not to solve a nonexistent crisis but to foist the Marxist idea of social-racial justice after milking the big dumb mainly white virtue-signaling deplorable herd like cows and shearing them like sheep.

We are on the winner’s team all along. Here’s my deepest most thoughtful dismantling of the CO2 global warming hoax using physics, fresh off the presses, free for all to study. I hope it gets wide readership despite IPCC shadow-banning. Once you are “woke”, I hope you become an activist fighting the IPCC’s Great Robbery every step of the way while getting royally pissed-off every time anybody tries to sell it.

Another month and not much has changed. The reason is pretty clear once you see one graph:

https://woodfortrees.org/plot/uah6/from:1979/to/plot/uah6/from:1979/to/trend/plot/hadsst3gl/from:1979/to/offset:-0.2/plot/hadsst3gl/from:1979/to/offset:-0.2/trend

The satellite temperature follows the changes in the ocean surface temperature (ie. the mixed layer). If you look right at the end of the chart you will see the oceans have just started to cool again after the most recent El Nino. The UAH anomaly will now start to fall with its usual lag.

So, the big question is, why have the oceans been warming? And, even more critical, what has been driving this warming which has been ongoing for the last 400 years.

It could be the sun, it could be ocean currents, it could be something completely unknown, but it clearly isn’t CO2 increases.

Antero Ollila
December 6, 2020 9:18 pm

I just remind again that the reason for high temperatures since super El Nino 2015-16 is a significant increase of shortwave radiation – not the same thing as total solar radiation. This is not a theoretical issue, because it is based on real satellite measurements. The climate establishment is quiet about this issue because according to IPCC climate models, the temperature increase should be about double as great as measured.

As has been mathematically proved in my peer reviewed manuscript in the September issue of the journal Dynamics of the Atmospheres and Oceans, all global climate and weather models are based on the wrong atmospheric equations of motion and so it is no surprise that they cannot be trusted. The models violate the Kreiss Bounded Derivative Theory and the basic tenets of numerical analysis.

Well, I am just an occasional reader and commenter here at WUWT, and I have not followed all the squabble in excruciating detail as some people have.
I would just like to note that I am old enough to remember the ‘Global Cooling’ scare of the 1970’s, when all the ‘experts’ were warning that unless we did just as they demanded, the Earth would cool, there would be crop failures, mass starvation, and we were ALL GONNA DIE!
But….. the various instruments indicated that ‘The Cooling’ stopped right around 1979 or so, and things apparently started warming back up. Warming up, that is, compared to the endpoint of the decade of cooling.
So….. is that why all these temperature graphs BEGIN right at the End of the Cooling, so right at the indicated Coolest Temperatures?
How about all the temperature graphs start at, say, 1900, or some point OTHER than the End (and thus the coolest point in time) of the Great Cooling?

Please don’t flame me….. I am just pointing out what I have noticed, following the debates over the last several years.

There are many mathematical flaws with satellite data, especially over cloudy regions. The radiances have to be converted to temperature by inverting an integral. This is an ill posed mathematical problem and the inversion process over clouds involves some questionable approximations. If I recall correctly a large part of the earth is covered by clouds?

In the absence of major century-scale volcanoes:
UAHLT Anomaly four months later = approx. 0.20*Nino34SSTAnomaly + 0.15 = 0.20*(-1.2) + 0.15 = minus 0.09 = approx. minus 0.1C

The above decades-old strong relationship has been a bit wobbly lately – let’s see if it holds up this winter.

Admittedly this is anecdotal, but I just dont see it from my personal experience. When I first moved to the Kansas City area we would see multiple days, up to a week, with temperature over 100 degrees F during the day. This was in in 1989. Since about 2000 we have seen less than a week total of temperatures over 100. I just dont think the data on the ground supports the claim of temperature going up. I suspect there is something baked into the adjustments that forces the yearly temperatures to go up after adjustments, regardless of the measured temperature.

You have hit on a very important issue. The global set of temperature measurements is very sparse, especially over the oceans. There is not a sufficient number of measurements to accurately approximate the mean temperature which is an integral of temperature over the integral of the volume even if the
temperature measurements were perfect.

You need a more scientific response. What happened if the models were started before 1970
with the same parameterizations? Recall that they used to start the models centuries earlier and made the same claims. Why suddenly now are they starting the models so much closer to the current day? Is that because the longer runs were deviating from reality too much so they have retuned the parameterizations for the shorter runs so the runs look more realistic? Ask them what changes they have made to the parameterizations and other tunable parameters from the previous longer runs with clear scientific documentation. Given that the global models are all using the wrong atmospheric dynamical system of equations (a mathematical fact), what has been done to the models to make them fit the observed data during the period 1970-2000 (tunable parameterizations)? And given that the models are simulating a fluid closer to molasses than air because of the physically unrealistical excessive dissipation needed to overcome the use of discontinuous parameterizations how can the results be related to the real atmosphere? Have them answer these questions first because I think that will be sufficient to make the game they are playing obvious. Then you can argue about the obs data.

Before accepting something that is published as fact, carefully investigate the assumptions that have been used to produce the results. See my response to fred250. But as an extra precautionary example, on Steve McIntyre’s site I introduced a simple example showing that if one is allowed to choose the forcing (tunable parameterizations) in a time dependent system, then one can produce any solution one wants even if the time dependent system is the wrong one. This is exactly what the climate modelers have done.

The modelers need to answer the questions I [posed in the response to fred250 in a clear documented manner and not just provide output.
