Latest JMA Data Show France, Ireland And Finland Have Cooled In March, No Warming!

Global warming is supposed to mean a shorter winter, and thus we should expect a March warming trend for the northern hemisphere.

Today we look at the latest March data now available from the Japan Meteorology Agency (JMA) for France, Ireland and Finland.

As we have seen in other countries, the untampered JMA data show that the month of March has not warmed in these countries in decades.

30 years of March cooling in France

First we plot the mean temperature data for the surface stations in France for which the JMA has sufficient (untampered) data – going back more than 3 decades:

Data source: JMA.

As the above chart shows, only three of the 12 stations plotted show any warming for the month of March. Nine of 12 stations show cooling or no meaningful trend. So also in France spring appears to have been coming a bit over the past three decades.

Ireland – 4 decades of March cooling

Next we plot the mean temperature for the stations in Ireland, also for which the JMA has sufficient data, going back close to four decades.

Ireland is particularly interesting due to its location in the Northeast Atlantic, and so can tell us what impacts oceanic cycles could be having:

. Data source: JMA.

And that impact seems to be a wee bit of cooling. Five of six stations in Ireland show cooling, or flat. CO2 is definitely not driving the climate there.

Finland, the neighbor of Greta Thunberg’s Sweden

Next we plot the March data for Finland, also the stations for which the JMA has adequate data:

Data source: JMA.

Like in Greta Thunberg’s Sweden, Finland’s winters are not getting shorter. The data there show no warming in March taking place in more than 30 years. Winter is taking its time leaving. Nothing is really changing. Why would this be a “crisis”?

In summary, along with Canada, Alaska and Sweden, also Finland, France and Ireland have been showing no March warming.

One of the coldest Aprils on record in Germany

And finally, our friend Snowfan here reports how April, 2021, in Germany is coming in as one of the coolest since recording began in 1881.

The following chart of Germany shows the April mean temperature anomaly so far, up to April 29th, for various locations. Used is the new 1991 – 2020 reference period:

April 2021 temperatures have been running some 3°C below the 1991-2020 mean.

John S,
Re that newtube video of coal in China.
Those railway lines atop many large silos look impressive – but they are not just to hold up the rail lines above floods – nor are they there to store grain after big harvests helped by CO2 – they are actually disguised homes for numerous ICBMs. (smiley) Geoff S

Hi John – an excellent video that I will forward to my colleagues – thank you!
My latest paper may be of interest, published here by my good friend, veteran meteorologist Joe D’Aleo:
A Climate and Energy Primer for Politicians and Media
by Allan M.R. MacRae,
B.A.Sc., M.Eng., March 21, 2021, Updated April 27, 2021
It was recently excerpted by Pierre Gosselin at NoTricksZone and that excerpt published in German on EIKE (European Institute for Climate and Energy)
I (we) correctly called the global warming / green energy fraud in 2002, and the same year predicted that global cooling would start circa 2020.
On 21&22March2020 I correctly called the Covid-19 Lockdown fraud. There was no justification for the lockdown of anyone under 65 – the workforce or students. Actual (not USA-inflated) Covid-19 deaths for under 65’s in 2020 were 1 in ~300,000.
My paper notes the specious linking of the Climate and Covid frauds by the usual suspects, and their Final Solution, the CCP-style “Great Reset”.

Best regards, Allan

Post Script:

It saddens me to see severe cooling events happening all around the world, as we predicted two decades ago – it’s like watching a slow-motion train wreck that we tried to warn people about, and nobody would listen. I’ve always been a builder, and to watch the global warming climate fraudsters repeatedly delude idiot politicians and the public has been a depressing debacle.
Trillions of dollars of scarce global resources have been squandered on deliberate warmist frauds, as our society sleepwalked towards climate-and-green-energy disaster.
I have repeatedly stated that our idiot politicians have brewed the perfect storm, destabilizing the electrical grid with intermittent green energy nonsense at a time when we will need more abundant, reliable energy due to imminent global cooling.
We can hope that this cooling will be mild and short-lived, but I have no strong opinion, having not done the detailed work to try to quantify it. Some analysts are calling for a Grand Solar Minimum. Let’s hope it is no worse than the Dalton Minimum, and not like the Maunder.

You would think such a pristine site would not need “adjusting”

So the adjustment is “cooling the past”. What technical reason do they have for doing that?
Let’s guess, the Stevenson screens get a little dirtier every year by an estimated 1/100th of a degree per year, because those old record keepers are assumed to likely never have cleaned or repainted those screens in a hundred years….that’s a whole degree….hmmm nobody will believe that…so let’s assume they half cleaned them every year, that will be 1/2 a degree of past cooling required to help our climate modelling buddies predictions match our records better….hmm, then about 1990 they put in electronic aspirated thermometers, which are to be used for ‘correct temperature’ going forward…but those damned aspirated ones read a a quarter of a degree cooler in the afternoon sun compared to a Stevenson screen and it is against the rules to report lower readings cuz ‘global warming’ so the appropriate action is to “adjust the past” downwards instead, when marrying the records of the different instruments….hmmm again.
And the time of day of recording the readings is touted as a required adjustment AS IF people really read the temperature at the time of the log entry. Except the old steel float on mercury thermometers show the overnight low and daytime high, so as long as reading is sometime between sunrise and lunch time, the recorded instrument readings are very unlikely to change.

Really, they should just go with the readings everyone took at the time and give the reason why they think they might be different with today’s weather station gear. Except in that case, the public at large wont believe their great grandpa couldn’t read a thermometer, which is essentially what an adjustment of 0.8 degrees is saying. And they have huge budgets to analyze just why great grandpa was obviously incorrect. Do I need a /s ?

“What’s in that MMTS Beehive anyway”

Page 2, starts the article.

Same/similar issues affect ocean buoy sensors, too. Just different wildlife impacts.

Yet, NOAA uses these temperature sensor instrumental data as if they are laboratory environments and calibrated annually. Instead of NOAA’s total lack of calibration while placing sensitive instruments into miserable nonstandard sites.

Replacement data collecting sensors should have comparative side by side data collection periods to monitor sensor performance under documented conditions…
Not in NOAA systems.

That’s how *real* science is done. And then you include an uncertainty interval if you are unsure of the accuracy of the reading. That uncertainty can be either calculated or estimated.

When you “adjust” the data that becomes a totally subjective changing of the data because there is no way to travel back in time and determine the actual inaccuracy of the reading.

Do not forget that three of those readings were at Shannon, Dublin, and Cork airports.
Now anyone with half a brain knows about the reliability of airport thermometers.
For instance the traffic at Dublin airport has grown by at least 50% in the last thirty years with a commensurate influence on the the ambient temperature.
As far as I know the measurement site has not changed in that time.
Over here we just laugh at temps recorded at Heathrow.

Yes, the cooling of the past is just plain fraud.

Tony Heller has debunked all the reasons the Data Manipulators give for adjusting temperatures and changing the temperature profile.

Actual temperature readings, before these computer adjustments are made, show that it was just as warm in the recent past as it is today, which means we are not experiencing unprecedented warming today, and that means CO2 is a minor player in the Earth’s climate and does not need to be regulated.

That’s not the message the Temperature Data Manipulators want to send, so they change the temperature profile with their computers to make it appear that temperatures are getting hotter and hotter for decade after decade and we are now at the warmest period in human history. And it’s all a Big Lie created to sell a personal and political agenda. The “before and after manipulation” pictures of temperature charts tell the story.

Special thanks to fred250 for illustrating this deception so well using unmodified and modified temperature charts side by side. When that is done, the fraud is obvious, especially considering this data manipulation has been done all across the world. These manipulations are no accident or mistake. They are deliberate, for a purpose, which is not science.

Yes, I have been a loyal fan of Tony Heller since he started publishing his material, and I too applaud fred250 for the effort he takes to provide clear evidence of the fraud. I also appreciate the care and patience you take in your responses.

As you say, there is no evidence and nothing to suggest that the present day is at all remarkable and unprecedented. The entire “climate change” narrative has been equivocal from the start. These people have convinced many that adulterated data resulting in manufactured, “virtual” climate is reality.

Nick Stokes will tell you it is real science and required for the truth. And if you do it 100 times you can get the readings to about 8 decimal points.

Ireland – 4 decades of March cooling

Ireland is particularly interesting due to its location in the Northeast Atlantic, and so can tell us what impacts oceanic cycles could be having:”

I lived in Ireland at about the time this record began and was going to mention something similar including the country being on the receiving end of the Gulf Stream. My memories of Ireland in winter was that it was almost perpetually wet, and bitterly cold. A constant drizzle that permeated everything, plenty of frosts I don’t recall that much snow. Fortunately the houses I lived in had open fireplaces and coal/peat was in constant use.

The “true believer’s ” i talk to too fit various categories, the most striking thing about all them is they refuse to look at any data i offer, they never get back to me when I say ” check this web site out,read this paper”never once has any one said along the lines of ” wow that was interesting” the types who do read and listen in a little more depth to the religion of global warming, don’t really talk about warming,they seem to be more interested in =

Its good for the environment ” too many people” and so on and so on.

In other words their idealism is to a greater extent confirmed by political and MSM propaganda.

Rather like a church preaching to its flock.

The above can further be split into two sub categories, the ones who are financially secure,and the ones who however hard they try ( or not try) never quite make it to the life style they would like. There vocal they go along with political promises that would in their eyes give them a more level playing field, what they don’t seem to realise is what you take away from one group is never given out in a fair share , this is what happens when you sell global warming and environmental fear mongering to jealous and envious people. Nore do these folk realise they are political pawns ,who for decades have had the ability ” to do for themselves ” eroded. Its not the climate,its not co2 , its a political agenda.

Then we have the young from primary school to further education who have been taught “the science is settled ” who are not taught critical thinking, who do not question political agendas that have been embedded into the classroom, teachers willing to teach a one way only agenda,
Victims themselves of being starved of unbiased science , and if they do know the science is definitely not settled the fear of losing their career for teaching the truth is always at the forefront of their minds.

I could go on and on, but the truth is we don’t live in a climate of global warming ,we live in a climate of fear,manipulation and political agenda’s.

That is definitely the climate we are in.

The Left created this climate of intimidation and fear, and are doing so as a way to gain political power through the use of the Human-caused Global Warming/Climate Change scam as a means of controlling the people and the economy.

The Elites/Socialists want to control the world and this is the way they are going about it.

The People of the United States don’t like to be told what to do and they are not going to sit quietly by while their freedoms are stolen away by powerhungry leftwing politicians. Expect a lot of pushback.

I checked my gas consumption for April this year and compared it to my reading last year. It appears I’ve used about 70% more this year and anecdotally I have felt colder this year than I ever remember for previous years. Even the cold water from the tap seems to be colder than usual.

Reply to  John in Cheshire
May 1, 2021 5:08 am

John in Cheshire, you are not alone in using more gas.

I’m in the USA’s Upper Midwest, about 6 or 7 miles west of Lake Michigan (well-known for dragging cold air and snow into the area), and despite my new and more efficient furnace installed last fall, my gas bill has gone up and I am still running the furnace. The NWS forecast has us in the mid-40s at night and -maybe- low 60s daytime, if we’re lucky, but if not, upper 50s daytime. Not what I want.

Ditto on the cold water taps: all of them, bathrooms and kitchen alike, take longer than usual to give me hot water. It’s the beginning of May. I should be drinking iced tea and have the windows open. Instead, they’re closed and I’m still on hot tea. Same with my neighbors. Not the first year for this, either. Started back in the early 2000s, when I moved into my home.

May 1, 2021 4:55 am

Global warming is supposed to mean a shorter winter, and thus we should expect a March warming trend for the northern hemisphere. – article

And here in the Upper Midwest, on the first day of May it is barely mid-40s, which is chilly. Should be around mid to upper 50s daytime. When I look at the NWS forecast for just a week ahead, it’s low 40s at night and barely low 50s daytime. And no, this is not average for my AO. It is below average. Frost advisory for Ohio and freeze warning for western Pennsylvania.

It’s May Day and the trees around here are so thinly leafed out that the canopies look like April instead of May. I can look at the NWS weather map and whammo!, there’s that pool of cold air plonked down on us like some old broody hen on a clutch of eggs. And the usual display of violets in my yard is less than 50% of its regular appearance.

If those are not signs that the weather (short term stuff) is changing and may become a “new normal”, then what are they? Are they popcorn balls or something? Seriously, if you put a garden in and want to watch it grow, you’d better do it in a shed with some kind of heating system, or you’re wasting your time and money. And yes, I do expect this kind of weather to be found elsewhere, not just the Upper Midwest.

Here is a longer overview of the temperature reality in France for the month of March.

This is what’s really going on…. pretty much absolutely nothing.

These are the 30 weather stations used by Météo France. They cover the whole of France, from Lille in the North to Nice in the South, Strasbourg in the East to Brest in the West, and everywhere in between, including Bastia on the island of Corsica.

Nice – Côte d’Azur
Marseille-Marignane (Marseille Provence)
Bastia – Poretta
Besançon – Thise
Montélimar – Ancone
Rennes-St Jacques
Châteauroux – Déols
Orléans – Bricy
Agen – La Garenne
Clermont-Ferrand – Aulnat
Perpignan – Rivesaltes
Le Mans – Arnage

The chart below shows the averaged temperature from all these stations for March, from 1930 to 2021. It also shows the averaged Min/Max for the month as well.

Top 5 coldest averages over the period:

March 1971 4.68°C
March 1962 5.2°C
March 1944 5.45°C
March 1970 5.73°C
March 1955 5.9°C

Top 5 warmest averages over the period:

March 1957 11.21°C
March 2017 11.14°C
March 1948 10.95°C
March 1994 10.78°C
March 1997 10.67°C

If CO2 is that important maybe it’s staving off an ice age. Or maybe doing nothing more than usual.

I feel we are being cheated out of global warming in Ireland. It would be really, really, really great here if the average temperatures were raised by 3°C. Our plants would flourish. People would go out more and be healthier and covid numbers would possibly have been a lot lower.

” It would be really, really, really great here if the average temperatures were raised by 3°C. ”

I’m afraid this is exactly what you shouldn’t expect too much in your Ireland.

Because due to a strong increase of northwesterly winds, our corner south of Berlin in Germany looks since over a decade each year a bit more like if Berlin was not near Poland, but rather near Dunkerque along the English Channel.

It gets warmer near Berlin, the last winter that deserved this name was in 2010. But I can’t say I would appreciate this increase in atmospheric perturbations coming from the Atlantic.
