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. None have shown warming for the month of August.

Sweden

Next we look at Sweden, home of teen climate doomsday alarmist, Greta Thunberg:

Data: JMA

Poor Greta has seen her summers cool.

Norway

Finally we look at the trends at 11 stations in Norway:

Data: JMA

Seven of of 11 stations in Norway have seen cooling. So summers over far northern Europe obviously are not extending further into the fall. Quite the opposite seems to be the trend: fall is encroaching into summer.

And how is September, 2021, shaping up? The following anecdote provides a hint.

September may be “perhaps the coldest of the 21st century”

Earlier today at Twitter Mika Rantanen posted how frost has gripped much of Finland this morning, with temperatures falling to a wintry  -6.4°C.

Last night was the coldest one so far during this autumn, with -6.4°C measured in Ylivieska airport.

September 2021 is on its way to perhaps the coldest of the 21st century in Finland. pic.twitter.com/kc3J6ci4CB

It’s blatant cherry picking. First, the choice in where to delineate “Northern Europe” is fairly arbitrary and seems to have been chosen because that’s where you can see cooling trends:

Second, using August as a stand-in for summer is arbitrary, and if you use the full range of summer months these regions have shown warming over this period:

And of course the time interval is chosen specifically so that it will show cooling for this region, without any indication of the statistical significance of the trend. If we start two years earlier, we get warming:

When your trend can reverse in sign based only on your start year, you’re probably not looking at enough time for the region under consideration.

If you don’t like picking start points, then why do you do that too?

The point being that there are consecutive months that display cooling. It means there must be an area of similar size that bumps up the Global Average Temperature. The problem is that when there is no cooling, then those “hot” regions must have something like 1 degrees warming to reach 0.5 degrees. Do you think there wouldn’t be lots of propaganda blaring loudly about those regions? I assure you that the media wouldn’t miss the opportunity.

It points out what fallacy the GAT is. To reach an average, there must be regions above and below the mean. To have a positive mean anomaly you must have regions with more warming than cooling. No one ever shows the breakdown of the parts, let alone display what the variance is for the GAT.

Picking a starting point isn’t the problem, the problem is trying to establish a climatic trend over a period of time so short and a region so small that simply shifting the start date reverses the sign of the trend. That means you’re drawing trend lines in the noise.

To your other point, you can see from the global view that the planet warmed during this period, and that is true whether you’re looking at August-only temps, whole-summer temps, or temps from 1995 or 1993. So of course the “cooling” in Scandinavia in August is more than offset by warming in the rest of the world.

You really didn’t address Jim’s point. If you look at August from 1995-2021 there are huge areas of cooling. Same for Jul-Sep for ’95-’20. Do these areas offset? It’s hard to tell from the picture. You seem to believe they do. I’m not so sure. It’s even worse for Aug, ’93-2021. You complain about picking Norway, Sweden, and Finland but then turn around and only seem to be looking at the red areas on the global map. Your global maps don’t seem to be showing Norway, Sweden, and Finland as cooling at all, they show to have some of the worst warming of anywhere.

CORRECT! Which is why any climate trend analysis that starts less than 6000 years ago (when civilization really started to take off) is simply cherry picking.

Starting 6000 years ago – in the middle of the Minoan Warm Period – shows we’re cooling. These modern extrapolations/trends are all cherry picked as it “reverses the sign of the trend”.

I think you’ve misunderstood, egregiously so, my point about start dates. Starting a trend at 6000 years ago will not be different than starting a trend at 6001 years, or 6010, or 5090 years ago. Thus the sign of the trend isn’t being driven by random variability. Similarly starting a trend at 50, 55, 45 years ago will not reverse the sign of the trend. So here too you are looking at a long enough time interval to overcome the natural variability. But the trend for Scandinavia over the last ~25 years do change sign depending on start date, so you’re actually just drawing trend lines in random noise, not identifying the underlying signal.

The best way to look at it is noting the mild warming trend from the Little Ice Age. From modern data it appears the warming trend has ups and downs. With the current about 35-year “up” part of an approximately 70-year trend, we draw no “climatic” information. The longer term warming trend is less than 1 C/century.

The results of the 2020s and 2030s will tell us if the UN IPCC CliSciFi models have any use. Until then, I see no reason to wreck our society, economy and energy systems with Marxist-like schemes.

Of course it does.
We were coming out of the HCO 6K ya, with TSI at 65 deg N falling (as much as an orbital eccentricity ever does as well) …

And no, the point is what changes mankind has made to the climate since preindustrial … That is a rise in atmospheric CO2 by ~ 50%
with a consequent increase in radiative forcing of 5.35 ln(413/280) ~= 2W/m2

We can’t do anything about the Earth’s orbit, we might be able to do something about polluting the atmosphere/oceans.

What makes you think that is the correct value for radiative forcing for the recent increase in CO2 in the atmosphere?

Why do you consider human emissions of CO2 to be “pollution”, given that CO2 is a natural component of the atmosphere and that there is no fixed value for the percentage of CO2 in the atmosphere? Do you personally pollute the atmosphere when you breathe out?

25 years is considdered as likely a trend. I would agree with you, if it is only 10 years. But this is not the case.

The thing is: we are far from having a very clear of error with always the same setting worldwide covering temperature measured.

It’s record is filled with instrument changes station relocations etc.

First lesson of science in school: “ in order to have a reliable series of mesurements, you use through the observations the SAME method and the SAME measuring instruments”

That doesn’t mean “don’t improve”, that means simply that the modern way with automated weather stations and their new requirements should be considdered as a second series of observations, that exists next to the old method, which should then continue.

You can’t just “consider” something a trend, you need to perform statistical significance tests. If you find that shifting the start date of your trend by a short period completely reverses the sign of the trend, it’s a very strong indication that you aren’t looking at a long enough time period.

And while, yes, you can often achieve statistically significant trends over 25-30 years at the global or hemispheric level, that isn’t necessarily true of very small regions like the Scandinavian peninsula, especially when you’re looking at a limited number of station records.

And of course I have to note here that the author of this article has done none of this more thorough analysis.

Have you ever done a statistical analysis on a periodic function? Traditional statistical analysis just doesn’t work. If I start a trend on a minimum of a sine wave and then move or even pi or even pi/2 radians I can easily change the sign of any “trend”.

I never see a discussion of the climate, temperatures and rainfall in the thirty climate zones and sub-zones and how these impact on their neighbors. I suspect the reason is that weather and climate is far more complex that the simplistic modelers would have us believe. We do not need to be scientists to ask hard questions, only keen observers.

Actually the best scientists have one thing in common – their keen observation. They see patterns and ask questions and do experiments to test their theories. Today’s alarmists have nothing in common with men like Michael Faraday and all those who impacted on his life. Faraday welcomed hard questions but today’s alarmists despise them because they cannot allow anyone to threaten their convictions.

I see you skipped the JMA database and ignored the article itself to push the worst dataset available which doesn’t cover the specific listed regions mentioned in the article, you show the GLOBAL maps instead.

The article covers three countries, Finland, Norway and Sweden. You ignored that to use the entire world instead which means you didn’t even address the specific regions at all.

That is pathetic!

Finland isn’t part of Scandinavia. That’s Denmark, Norway and Sweden.
Finland, Norway and Sweden are however a reasonably large piece of land area on the same latitude. And all three countries have long instrument records.
Denmark is somewhat further south and has a climate very much moderated by the North Sea to the west and the Baltic Sea to the east. So it’s a very different climate.

Surely you can’t be blind since the JMA charts shows a very different picture, they show a DECLINE in most stations listed.

Just… focus your gaze on Scandinavia. Just because the map shows the entire world doesn’t mean you’re forced to only take in the global trend. Look at the region under discussion and relate my comments to that region. The August “cooling” in Scandinavia the article points out is plainly visible in the map. But that August “cooling” that the article claims is actually “late summer” cooling disappears (again, look at Scandinavia on the second map) when you look at Jul-Sep.

I’m sorry if my tone seems incredulous but I genuinely can’t believe I’m having to explain how to look at a map.

You are ignoring the point that regions do not add up to the whole. If you want to refute the temps shown, then find similar sized regional stations anywhere that show the warming needed to make up the difference shown by the GAT. I assure you, you will have a hard time finding them, especially on a global basis.

The very basis for the GAT assumes a non-normal distribution for GAT. That is, it is skewed toward the warm extreme. However, that would likely mean a large variance, skew, and probably a large kurtosis.

Why are none of these statistical parameters EVER quoted when stating a mean value? You want to be an expert, tell us what these statistical parameters are for the temperature distribution. I suspect that you will find the same thing I did, no organization is willing to provide these vital statistical parameters. This demonstrates a lack of scientific rigor and I suspect you will do no better.

You do realize what you are defining is a cyclical or periodic function don’t you? move the starting point 90 degrees on a sine wave and you’ll get a major change in slope of a linear line. That is why trying to use linear regression to determine a trend on a periodic waveform is less than useless. Trying to use statistical analysis of a periodic waveform is also less than useless.

I should add that any analysis using statistics must also include time as a function and currently nothing with temperature ever includes time to derive time coherent samples of various temperatures at each and every location.

Your lack of scientific education is showing. You must start analyzing a multi-signal periodic function using Fourier or wavelet analysis. Moving further and further into the past provides no special insight into what is happening. If you’ve ever worked with any kind of signals you would understand that various oscillations with varying phases and amplitudes can result in a moving signal. That is basically natural variation. Trying to put a trend line on a signal like this means nothing. You certainly can’t isolate something like CO2 by merely doing averages. It just won’t work. You can’t even forecast the future unless you can also forecast the amplitudes, frequencies and phases of all the different oscillations. Think of AMO, PDO, La Nina, El Nino, Hadley, etc. cells, sun’s variation. These all combine into a symphony of the climate on earth. They all vary with different amplitudes and frequencies. Any you think a simple average will tell you what will happen in the future?

/ you can present “true” data that presents a misleading and/or incomplete picture of what is actually happening./

That is absolutely correct, even a high school student understands that argument; which is why it is VERY troubling to see NASA/NOAA doing it:

How Government Twists Climate Statistics

https://www.wsj.com/video/opinion-journal-how-government-twists-climate-statistics/80027CBC-2C36-4930-AB0B-9C3344B6E199.html

And then there are various and sundry other “anomalies”:

1] An Arctic that refuses to melt (promised by some by 2014), glaciers that refuse to melt (GNP), snows that refuse to disappear…

2] The fact that there is not a single high quality long term tide gauge that shows accelerating sea level rise. Never mind a tripling.

3] The fact that there is not a single temperature dataset (with the exception of UAH) that has not been “adjusted”. Before all the adjustments, the previous determination was:

U.S. Data since 1895 Fail to Show Warming Trend

https://www.nytimes.com/1989/01/26/us/us-data-since-1895-fail-to-show-warming-trend.html

4] And we can go on and on…

The whole thing has a Lance Armstrong taint about it: his primary physician was a notorious doper, inconsistent VO2 maxes with times, miraculously appearing therapeutic use exemptions, assistants finding PEDs in his refrigerator, testimony from witnesses that he told his cancer doctors he was using PEDs, positive laboratory results for EPO from past Tours…

And that was all before his USPS team mates got up in front of a federal grand jury and testified that that they were all doped to the gills and before the final confession on Oprah.

So, if you are not skeptic with all of that, God bless you. The only piece of advice I can give you, if and when you finally do come to your senses, is don’t admit it publicly as you will jeopardize your scientific career as well as lose most of your social media accounts.

Before I “did the math” I was teaching CAGW at University, so I don’t care if the theory it is is true or not, I will go in whatever the direction the science indicates. However, the science has to be correct.

The problem is that your skepticism shouldn’t end at the above points – you need to express skepticism towards these claims as well.

For instance, here is an article showing multiple individual tide gauges showing sea level rise acceleration. Here is the sea ice index showing undeniable decline of the Arctic sea ice. Here is a comparison of raw (black line) and adjusted temperature data, showing that the trend is not the result of adjustments at all. So where is your skepticism towards the skeptics? Are you willing to acknowledge that each of those claims you made is incorrect or misleading?

The point is that there is quite a variance in temperatures. I’m sure that also exists in tide levels. What is the variance of the data you are presenting? You can’t just compute an average. That is a statistical parameter and scientists also quote the associated variance in the mean so that one can tell how well the mean represents the data being used.

Where is your variance quote? There are numerous standard deviation and variance calculators on the internet that you can put your data into.

The mean represents the central tendency of the population. We are interested in knowing whether that tendency is shifting. Here the range of variance is not so important. If the mean is shifting over time then the distribution is shifting.

And you can verify that yourself by looking at tide gauges with 100+ more years of history.

And you give me 1979 as proof of “undeniable decline in Arctic sea ice”? If you viewed the WSJ link above you will notice that 1979/80 is a recurring date in all of this:

DATA ADJUSTMENT #4&5 (Australian Land Temperatures – 2019)

Heat on Bureau of Meteorology over data records rewrite
The Bureau of Meteorology has rewritten Australia’s temperature records for the second time in six years, greatly increasing the rate of warming.

https://www.theaustralian.com.au/nation/climate/heat-on-bureau-of-meteorology-over-data-records-rewrite/news-story/30c0bc68e582feb2828915e172702bd1
 
DATA ADJUSTMENT #6 (UK Land Temperatures – 2020)

HadCRUT5 shows 14% more global warming since 1850 than HadCRUT4

The usual method is adopted: depress the earlier temperatures (we know so much better what the temperature was a century and a half ago than the incompetents who actually took the measurements), and elevate the later temperatures with the effect of steepening the trend and increasing the apparent warming.

https://wattsupwiththat.com/2021/02/21/hadcrut5-shows-14-more-global-warming-since-1850-than-hadcrut4/

And with all of those adjustments, the “hiatus” observed by Curry in 2015 has disappeared. As well as the disappearance of the “no trend” reported in the NYT link above.

I have no problem with the adjustments as a praxis (we often need to adjust data) but what is salient about these is that they are not isolated (flukes) but involve ALL of the datasets. (this quite simply beggars’ credulity, and casts real doubt on the experimental competence of the discipline). 

I have undergraduates that can point out what I pointed out above… and they do. Which is why I stopped teaching CAGW at University and have gone back to the fundamental sciences.

And you can verify that yourself by looking at tide gauges with 100+ more years of history.

This is just moving the goal posts. You claim no individual tide gauges show acceleration, I show you that they do, then you claim no, you meant a higher rate of global sea level rise than any time in the past.

Your sea ice video from Heller is bizarre. He takes a graph of sea ice extent and mashes it into a graph of sea ice anomaly, after apparently stretching out the graph of anomalies to correspond with the numeric units on the side of the extent graph. This is completely unnecessary, as we have modern reconstructions of sea ice data:

There is no question that Arctic sea ice is declining. Again, you need to be more skeptical of the skeptics. You are seemingly completely uncritical of any information that fits your preconceptions.

And, again, you can complain about adjustments all you want – I just showed you a comparison between raw (black line) and adjusted temp data:

There’s little difference, the warming is real, it’s not a result of adjustments. I hope you imparted a higher level of scientific rigor to your former students than you display here.

That is correct. And as a result of not wanting any goal posts, running the data myself was the first thing I did when I started becoming skeptical of the AG hypothesis. It is quite simple to do and a lot simpler than the spectroscopy data I normally work with.

All of the data is there at the PSMSL & NOAA. Download it yourself and run the regression analyses.

With the US temperature data sets, you will produce multiple iterations, as you start with the original raw data (which the NYT piece was based on) and then move through the adjusted data sets. Which is also now true of ACORN and HadCRUT, which also have multiple data sets, from raw to adjusted.

What you will find at the end of the exercise is exactly what Judith Curry reported for SLR in addition to multiple US temperature plots that you can select from… using whatever “Goldilocks” criteria you fancy, from no warming to what they report today.

*And you don’t need something as sophisticated as MATLAB to do it, Excel will work just fine, it will just be a lot more unwieldy.

I agree that running the data yourself is fairly straightforward, which is why I did so in the analysis presented above.

undeniable warming – it is pronouncements like that, that make AGW difficult to take seriously; which are in turn accompanied by inanities like the “Arctic will be ice free by 2014” or that the world has only 12 years left, which has been averred since the 1990s by AGW proponents, BTW (before that the alarm was about peak oil, population outstripping foodstuffs and a return to a neo-boreal climate, if you keep track of the “alarms” as they go by).

And when the “undeniable statements” fall flat… it is “crickets”, with no accountability. Maybe you all are just “joshing about”, but I can’t separate your joshing from what you seriously believe. So, it might be time for someone to draw a line in the sand, and take personable responsibility (put their careers on the line) for what they say?

I think your Reddit comments cover most of what I want to say, so there is no need for a repetition here. However, as the analysis uses the GHCN…. I could use the same model and statistics to make the undeniable argument that stopping global nuclear proliferation is impossible, because each nation already has ~68.9 nuclear warheads (assuming I grid out the existing stocks over the entire globe).

Convincing one’s self is the easy part. Convincing others however is difficult, but can be greatly facilitated by locking others out of the debate, and by labelling them “deniers”, “wreckers” or “Trotskyites”, etc… However, as Trofim Lysenko eventually discovered, sooner or later the harvest figures come in and hungry people eventually stop giving you the benefit of the doubt and demand answers for the discrepancies.

Maybe Lysenko was just “joshing about” as well? However, we are fast approaching half a century of CAGW hysteria… and all I see is an Arctic that refuses to melt, sea levels that refuse to rise, and a Northern Hemisphere that refuses to warm (which we learn now may growing cooler, because of the unprecedented warming of the Arctic)…. and a plethora of various and sundry other “anomalies”.

However, what I find most astonishing is that if one genuinely believed that the Earth was going to end in twelve years, why would one be so averse to news that it might not be or that it isn’t ? The normal reaction to a cancer diagnosis is a second opinion… but whoa to any second opinion about CAGW.

Instead, CAGW seems to serve as a perverse “raison d’être”… go figure.

What’s bad about declining sea ice? Currently it is near-impossible to live in the Arctic and Antarctic, let alone grow food, or navigate the waters. We should all be happy that the ice left over from the last ice age is finally melting. Future generations will have enormous swaths of habitable land and open water, and the surface not experiencing frost in winter will likewise expand enormously. This will help more than anything else both to feed a growing population and provide it with living space, AND bring down the amount of energy currently wasted on heating our dwellings because the current climate outside the tropics is so very unsuited for humans (as well as most farm animals and crops – look at the amount of tasty and nutritious food we currently have to import from the tropics, again wasting tremendous amounts of fuel). Wouldn’t it be wonderful if Russians, Canadians, and Swedes could grow their own bananas, mangos, ananas and oranges?! Fighting global warming is fighting prosperity, fighting health and wealth, ultimately fighting LIFE. Only Death is cold.

Coastal sea-level acceleration is analyzed using all of the world’s high-quality tide gauge recordings with lengths of at least 75 years that extend through 2017–19. Earlier studies have demonstrated that tide gauge recordings of at least 75 years in length are required to reduce the effects of multidecadal variations on acceleration. There are 149 tide gauge records that meet the criteria. Mean and median sea-level accelerations based on these gauges were 0.0128 ± 0.0064 mm/y2 and 0.0126 ± 0.0080 mm/y2, respectively, both at the statistically significant 95% confidence level.

That is a step in the right direction: 0.0128 ± 0.0064 mm/y2.

As you cited J.R. Houston, I assume you will stick by his acceleration values?

If so, that will allow you to dispute almost every single paper now being published by the alarmist side and may get you labeled as a “climate denier” should you persist, as the acceleration values they publish are often an order of magnitude (10x) or greater than .0128 mm/y2.

For example, with Houston’s paper in hand, you can rubbish the following study’s findings:

https://phys.org/news/2021-01-sea-level-cards-trends.html

In which they claim that Rock Port Texas is experiencing an acceleration rate of 0.262 mm/y2, which is 20x what Houston reports.

Furthermore, you can cite the Houston paper to rubbish the “time frames” they are using, of less than a decade, as you know from Houston that  time periods of “at least 75 years in length” are required to reduce multidecadal variations.

Furthermore, the Houston paper is a follow-up to a study they did in 2011.

Houston and Dean (2011) analyzed 57 U.S. tide gauges that had record lengths of at least 60 years (through 2010). Their analysis did not indicate acceleration in sea level in U.S.

tide gauge records during the 20th century. The data show small decelerations on average, with 30 gauge records showing deceleration and 27 showing acceleration. 

https://judithcurry.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/11/special-report-sea-level-rise-3.pdf

I don’t think there is a skeptic here at WUWT that will disagree with 0.0128 ± 0.0064 mm/y2. It sounds about right and is hardly alarmist or a concern or likely related to carbon dioxide.

So, the next time you read a paper that posits values greater than 0.0128 ± 0.0064 mm/y2, I hope you will have the fortitude and the integrity to cite Houston. I guarantee it won’t win you any friends in the CAGW alarmist community.

You are free to assume whatever you wish; however the Houston study was cited purely to refute the nonsense claim that no tide gauges show acceleration, you are inferring that means I also endorse their estimate for global SLR acceleration. Infer away.

There are known issues with tide gauges, including vertical land movement and sparse coverage, particularly in the Southern Hemisphere. Satellite altimeters do not suffer from these drawbacks and so I prefer SLR measurements from that source.

There does not seem to be any major disagreement between the JMA series and the GISTEMP index in this case. But that “defined location” piece is a bit of a bear, because thermometers get moved all the time, so claiming that you don’t need to deal with this is a bit naive. You can also see that there is enormous difference in the mean of the different series shown, so pretending that those represent a homogenous series is also naive.

If you were honest you would have to say the so called average world temperature is a WAG. The error bars would be in degrees not tenths of hundreds, and those errors could way south the way north from one year to the next. The world temperature is numerology has no meaning, it trying to get a signal out of red noise and that not possible. This whole debate is stupidity. It would not be if it was framed honestly.

You can actually deal with it pretty well by identifying break points in the temperature series using the data and data from nearby stations. This has only a minor effect on the global trend but is very significant on small regional scales.
If it were actually truly impossible to compile a global temperature estimate using thermometers then we wouldn’t expect to see good agreement between thermometer and satellite estimates:

Dude! How can analyzing both July and August be “cherry picking” for reporting summertime temperature trends in northern Europe?

Weekly_rise
Reply to  Duane
September 24, 2021 9:15 am
  1. Look at how the author jumps the time periods around – for the July analysis they go from 1997 to 2001, here they go from 1997 to 1996, with no explanation given. The obvious reason is that they’re picking out time periods that will yield the lowest trend values. This is cherry picking.
  2. The choice of a single month can give misleading results. Most readers will come away from these analyses believing that Northern Europe is seeing colder and colder summers over the time period shown, but the reality is that the summer months overall are getting warmer and warmer. Even worse, you might be mislead into believing that the annual average in these countries is declining, and that is certainly untrue.
  3. Global warming doesn’t care about political boundaries. Nearby are the Baltic states, parts of Russia, Denmark, the ocean surfaces. No reason is given for the focus on Scandinavia. The clear reason, as you can see from the maps a provided above, is that the surrounding areas do not show negative trends over August during this time period, so would not suit the narrative.

Again, cherry picking does not mean you’ve presented false data, it means you’ve omitted data that doesn’t suit your narrative and this can mislead people, as it has in this very comment thread.

It is actually worse than that. Even after tweaking the selection of region and start dates to maximise the cooling trend, she did not show all the stations that met her criteria.

Torungen in July actually has more data than some stations she did plot and yet is excluded. By an amazing coincidence it shows a warming trend.

I think my incredulity is vindicated.

Except sometimes it is a 21 year cooling, or a 22 year cooling (etc). As I showed with one of the most ‘cooling’ stations, you can eradicate or reverse the trend by moving the start date a few years in either direction. Why do you think her plots use different start dates for each country and month? Start dates spanning 5 years? Blatant cherry picking is the answer.

And if anyone has the time, have a look at the July data for Torungen.and confirm ….

It is in Norway
It has sufficient data
It has a warming trend
It is not shown in the post.

Many posters here style themselves ‘sceptics’. I seem to be the only one who has done the simple sceptical thing of looking at the data.

I believe we had this CAGW nonsense sorted in 2002, when we published:

1. “Climate science does not support the theory of catastrophic human-made global warming – the alleged warming crisis does not exist.” – 2002
 
2. “The ultimate agenda of pro-Kyoto advocates is to eliminate fossil fuels, but this would result in a catastrophic shortfall in global energy supply – the wasteful, inefficient energy solutions proposed by Kyoto advocates simply cannot replace fossil fuels.” – 2002
 
3. “If [as we believe] solar activity is the main driver of surface temperature rather than CO2, we should begin the next cooling period by 2020 to 2030.” – 2002
 
3a. “I suggest global cooling starts by 2020 or sooner. Bundle up.” – 2013

Why JMA? Why Summer? Why start 1995/6, Why Scandinavia?

I guess having put in the hours to find locate one dataset/season/time period/region out of countless possible combinations that showed cooling, Kirye wanted to get another post out of her labours 😉

Actually, looking at the station in Google Earth 59.350000, 18.050000, the temp sensor sits about 3 meters (8-10 feet) from a roadway adjacent to a Traffic Control Light where ICE cars with warm engines and hot exhaust are forced to sit idle for a minute waiting their turn to proceed

“So a very big contradiction there banton, Russia is eastern europe. And were exactly do you think Poland is”.

I said N Russia/Siberia actually (you fail)

And were exactly do you think Poland is”
Where I implied it was …. E Europe (you fail)

For those blinded by the rage of having to perform bias control, comprehension is obviously impossible.

AGAIN:
It is late September.
Land over high latitudes is cooling and air from there came west into E Europe (N Russia/Siberia is/are NOT in Europe and Poland is).

As weekly has said … I’m genuinely amazed at the obtuseness here.
And it takes some beating!
Maybe a function of to many “alarmists” ratting some denizens.
Well you can repeat echoes all you like if you want to just vent anger, but you wont know what’s happening in the real world of climate unless you have someone post up other than “alternative facts”.

“Another damage limitation exercise banton , another disgusting post of yours trying to deflect from deaths people freezing to death in Poland forests.”

AS weekly has said this really are amazing!
Even for this place – and that’s saying something.

What has pointing out actual weather conditions in E Europe (and the meteorology of it occurring) got to do with …”trying to deflect from deaths people freezing to death in Poland forests”

Note the word “SIG”, meaning significant.
Not NONE.
The CR map shows exactly that.
It’s quite normal to have ground frost and a touch of air frost at this time of year and of course it feels “bl…dy freezing” coming, as it does, after warmth.

The point is that it’s not anomalously cold.

If you really want to know we spent August (or a good deal of it) in SPB Russia….

The bad cold weather, already started in Ural in early August & it was cold all around the Finnish gulf area from then on,- same going further north thru Rybinsk, where it poured with rain for days…

Moving along the Baltic coast kept us the same weather, which is the same as in Finland.

Poland???
You crazy?
Poland has nothing like the same weather!
Autumn equinox was literally 2 days ago!

This is the Aug 21 anomaly map that shows SPB to be near 0.5C ABOVE the ’51 to 80 baseline.

So, if you felt “bl..dy freezing” then I would suggest it’s because you are used to hot Augusts now because of AGW. (sarc)

Fact is, Europe is colder because I live there and my work is highly weather dependent (as are people that do roofing & building work).

It’s the 2nd year we have cold summers in Russia, which is a damn sight bigger than your little island on the edge of Europe.

It was so cold last 2-3 years in Russia in the middle of summer, people called it “zillioniy zima”…GREEN WINTER.

You overlook the fact that all the Temps records used in “the science” are cherry picked.

2 examples –
Australia’s BoM excludes everything prior to 1910 because disastrous heatwaves in the 1890s;

Canada excludes everything prior to 1950 because disastrous Heatwaves in the 1930s;

And what records are then used are adjusted to become “the data”.

Rubbish.
http://www.bom.gov.au/climate/change/acorn-sat/#tabs=Early-data
“The national analysis begins in 1910
While some temperature records for a number of locations stretch back into the mid-nineteenth century, the Bureau’s national analysis begins in 1910.
There are two reasons why national analyses for temperature currently date back to 1910, which relate to the quality and availability of temperature data prior to this time.
Prior to 1910, there was no national network of temperature observations. Temperature records were being maintained around settlements, but there was very little data for Western Australia, Tasmania and much of central Australia. This makes it difficult to construct a national average temperature that is comparable with the more modern network.
The standardisation of instruments in many parts of the country did not occur until 1910, two years after the Bureau of Meteorology was formed. They were in place at most Queensland and South Australian sites by the mid-1890s, but in New South Wales and Victoria there were still many non-standard sites in place until 1906–08. While it is possible to retrospectively adjust temperature readings taken with non-standard instrumentation, this task is much harder when the network has very sparse coverage and descriptions of recording practices are patchy.
These elements create very large uncertainties when calculating national temperatures before 1910, and preclude the construction of nation-wide temperature (gridded over the Australian continent) on which the Bureau’s annual temperature series is based.”

That may be true at the national level (are you sure about Canada?) however the global datasets – eg GHCN – do use the earier data to compile their trends and averages.

The station moved. They should ignore that?

As previously advised, the main temperature station moved to the radar station at the newly built Darwin airport in January 1941. The temperature station had previously been at the Darwin Post Office in the middle of the CBD, on the cliff above the port. Thus, there is a likely factor of removal of a slight urban heat island effect from 1941 onwards. However, the main factor appears to be a change in screening. The new station located at Darwin airport from January 1941 used a standard Stevenson screen. However, the previous station at Darwin PO did not have a Stevenson screen. Instead, the instrument was mounted on a horizontal enclosure without a back or sides. The postmaster had to move it during the day so that the direct tropical sun didn’t strike it! Obviously, if he forgot or was too busy, the temperature readings were a hell of a lot hotter than it really was!”

This quote makes the case about records fudging for me –

“Obviously, if he forgot or was too busy, the temperature readings were a hell of a lot hotter than it really was!”

This is pure speculation about how the Post Master carried out his duties.

If there is no actual evidence of such distracted conduct by the Post Master, the recorded contemporary readings should be left as is, not arbitrarily “adjusted” because some latter-day, unaccountable smartarse at the BoM decides he/she has special insights as to how things were done.

The record should end, and a new one started. To assume you can fabricate a “long” record by making adjustments is just wrong. The uncertainty involved just absolutely destroys any accuracy and precision estimates.

Basic metrology teaches that you can not “calibrate” one device with another device because of the combined uncertainty. If you have a question about the accuracy of a device it needs to be calibrated at a laboratory that specializes in meeting NIST standards. That can’t occur with devices that are no longer there. That is the reason for stopping the record and starting a new one!

As I said, I got all the data, more data points are generally better. The cooling trend disappears if you look at the whole record for the station. After all, what is so special about 1996? (I can guess).

This post is an update one Kirye did about the same stations in July. Here are the start dates she chose for July and August by country:

Sweden  1997 1995
Norway  2001 1996
Finland 1997 1996

So she starts her plots in a different year for each month and usually a different year for each country, with no reason provided.

I think she just chose the earliest year for each country/month that gave her a non-warming trend. There’s a name for this kind of data selection and it includes a popular stone fruit 😉

John P,
Up above, I posted the 50-year official record of Tmax and Tmin at Macquarie Island. No cherry picking, simply a selection of data with no UHI, no homogenization, remote, isolated, with few man-made complications.
Can you explain, seriously, why there has been no significant change of temperatures over that 50 years? By what mechanism does the pervasive global warming effect somehow identify and de-select Macquarie Island from the places it has warmed?

Selecting a single location that has the trend you want is the very definition of cherry-picking. Global warming does not mean that every single location on the whole planet is getting warmer.

His problem is: “How dare we use raw station data instead of homogenized data that smears the Stockholm UHI across the entire arctic.”

I am pretty sure if we check one of the vaunted homogenized databases, we will find that the station trends have all been inverted. Reality does not seem to comport with the narrative so must be ignored.

Actually I do, because I live here!

It’s been bl..dy freezing here for weeks, and it started in mid August while we were stating in next door St Petersburg!
The east wind has been freezing our butts off for weeks now, with high winds and all sorts, coming from the top end of Siberia, and the Murmansk peninsula.
That combined with an extremely late spring means we have a 2 month shortened summer this year. (OK it was unusually hot for a few weeks in the summer, = 30C+but 3-4 weeks DO NOT make a summer!)

This morning there was a frost, which is something I frankly have very rarely seen here at equinox.
I can perfectly believe, that just across the water in Suomi, it’s even colder than here, and the birds don’t lie!

This year doublethink has gone extreme in itself

Its been a relatively cool and wet summer with three hot days (followed by the inevitable thunderstorm)

But if you consult griff’s weathermeisters it’s a different story

“Summer has been warmer and drier than normal despite floods, Met Office says

You could be forgiven for thinking it’s been a terrible summer. Just look out of the window and you’re as likely to see torrential rain as sunny skies – putting paid to any idea of a beach staycation….”

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2021/08/07/summer-has-warmer-drier-normal-despite-floods-met-office-says/

When you ‘ve had a lot of rain the ground gets saturated. Add in a heavy storm or two… 

The Met Office is sticking with the narrative – ‘hotter, drier summers’ h/t David King

“Met Office meteorologists say the heavy rain and flooding have made people forget the long hot periods”

https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/uk-weather-british-summer-warmer-24715239

That’s the three hot days (and a thunderstorm).  

The trees are showing signs of packing up earlier than usual this year, it must be too hot and arid for them.

Leaf drop started here in northern NJ about a week and a half ago, but may have been driven partly by a bit of a hot, dry spell we’ve been having. Temperatures are definitely trending down at night. At 0830 today, the outdoor temperature was 57°F.

Just not this summer. The same thing must have caused the wind to be becalmed for an “unusual” amount of time.

The rain stopped raining and the wind stopped blowing.

Let me think: When a high pressure system sits on top of you for a long time, the rains go away and the winds stop blowing (at least, not enough to power a windmill). That sounds like this situation.

Maybe Griff didn’t figure high pressure systems and their behavior into the mix.

How so? There was heavy flooding but this was confined to specific areas. The UK had a much drier summer than average overall.

Again, before making rash claims, we should turn to the Met Office’s freely available online resource. Summer 2021 was the 21st driest in the UK rainfall record, which starts in 1862.

UK summer (Jun-Jul-Aug) rainfall in 2021 averaged 181mm. The 30-year average summer rainfall in the UK (1991-2020) is 253mm.

So yes, much drier than average, despite local flooding.

In the case of the Canadian record this year – it’s probably because it was near 5C above the previous highest recorded…..

https://www.rmets.org/metmatters/record-breaking-heat-canada

Yes, the Met situation was extreme but there was a “few degrees” (see below) of that 5C that was highly probably because of the long-term warming trend of AGW as Cliff Mass said here…..

https://wattsupwiththat.com/2021/07/06/was-global-warming-the-cause-of-the-great-northwest-heatwave-science-says-no/

“The evidence for a predominantly natural origin of the high temperatures records of last week is compelling, with global warming marginally increasing the peak temperatures BY PERHAPS A FEW DEGREES.  Without global warming, we still would have experienced the most severe heatwave of the past century.” (my CAPS)

According to the UK Met Office, at 15.28C summer (Jun-Jul-Aug) 2021 was the 9th warmest on record in the UK. The record starts in 1884.

The Met hide facts like this in freely available online resources, but if people don’t check these things before making rash claims based on their own local experience then they run the risk of making themselves look a little unskeptical.

Here’s just one example of your climate science getting it wrong in 1995:

At the most likely rate of rise, some experts say, most of the beaches on the East Coast of the United States would be gone in 25 years. They are already disappearing at an average of 2 to 3 feet a year.

There’s lots more where that came from. It’s embarrassing for the thermageddonists:

Can you point to any IPCC document that claims global (much less regional) warming is expected to proceed in a year-on-year progression of successive warmer temperatures? Natural variability has always been acknowledged as a strong influence on climate and it always will be. That in no way negates the long term effect of increasing greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere.

The IPCC assumes that increasing human CO2 emissions will always raise the global average temperature in case you haven’t been paying attention. That is why they issue a summary for policy makers.

The IPCC is only concerned with human influence on climate change as stated in their charter. So asking about IPCC documents that address other natural aspects of climate warming is disingenuous. They don’t exist.
