105 More Non-Global Warming/Non-Hockey Stick Temperature Records Added To The Database In 2021

From the NoTricksZone

By Kenneth Richard on 31. January 2022

Since 2019,there have been over 350 peer-reviewed scientific papers published showing no warming in the modern era and/or much warmer temperatures than today when CO2 levels ranged from 180 to 280 ppm (Holocene, Pleistocene).

Below is the link to the updated (now including 2021) database of non-hockey temperature records from locations across the world.

These hundreds of papers suggest a) Earth was multiple degrees warmer than today throughout much of the last 11,700 years (Holocene), and b) there has been nothing unusual about temperature changes in the modern era.

The first 8 papers on the 2021 list are shown below as samples.

Over 350 Non-Hockey Sticks (2019-2021)

Zhou et al., 2021  South China Sea ~4°C warmer SST during the Middle Holocene…1994-2004 coldest temperatures of the last 6000 years

Tarasov et al., 2021 (full paper)  Arctic Siberia was 3.5 to 5°C warmer than today during the peak of the last glacial (180 ppm CO2), providing year-round grass grazing for large herbivores

Environments during the spread of anatomically modern humans across Northern Asia 50–10 cal kyr BP …. Northern Asia (here, the Russian Federation east of the Urals) played a key role in the spread of anatomically modern humans (AMH) across the Eurasian continent during the Upper Palaeolithic (UP). … Contrary to the long-standing view of a generally colder-than-present last glacial climate, these proxy records reveal evidence that summers were warmer than today by several degrees Celsius, providing additional advantages for human activities. Another benefit for large herbivores, and thus human subsistence, were the generally low winter precipitation levels (similar to those of the modern steppe regions of Mongolia), which sustained year-round grazing grounds. These factors apparently outweighed the harsh colder-than-present winter conditions and promoted habitation of AMH in Northern Asia even during the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM) ca. 30‒18 cal kyr BP. … [R]econstructed mean July temperatures 12°C for most of the last cold stage in the study area, where modern mean July temperatures are about 7°C … [A]t least 3.5°C higher-than-present summer temperatures during the Last Glacial Maximum [CO2 180 ppm] in the southern part of eastern Siberia

Wetterich et al., 2021  Siberian Arctic had “warmer-than-today temperatures (by up to 4–4.5° C)” during the last glacial (180 ppm CO2), or between “39 and 31 cal kyr BP”

Between 48 and 38 cal kyr BP, the chironomid fauna is dominated by typical aquatic taxa although chironomid counts and diversity decrease considerably between 46 and 44 cal kyr BP when the reconstructed TJuly rises up to 1.5°C above modern. The period between 44 and 41.5 cal kyr BP is characterized by the highest diversity and concentration of chironomids. The communities are dominated by the Heterotrissocladius grimschawi-type that occurs in oligotrophic lakes and is indicative of moderate conditions with temperature optima of 11–12°C. … Reconstructed TJuly slightly varies around modern with warmer-than-today TJuly around 41 cal kyr BP. … At about 51 cal kyr BP and 40 cal kyr BP in the Bykovsky record, the occurrence of the temperate aquatic plant Callitriche hermaphroditica provides evidence of mean TJuly of 12° C or more, while the finding of the steppe taxon Thesium dated to 51 cal kyr suggests TJuly of 15°C or more. The chironomid-based TJuly reconstruction for MIS 3 from the Sobo-Sise Yedoma record shows some variation (Figure 5) and points to warmer-than today (>11° C) temperatures at about 51 cal kyr BP, 46-44 and 41 cal kyr BP showing a general agreement with the plant macrofossil-based TJuly estimates from the Bykovsky Yedoma record (Kienast et al., 2005). …  TJuly reconstructions from the western part of the Yana-Indigirka lowland (east of the study area) reveal similarto or warmer-than-today temperatures (by up to 4–4.5° C) and higher-than-today annual precipitation (by up to 50–100 mm) between about 39 and 31 cal kyr BP (Pitulko et al., 2017)

Civel-Mazens et al., 2021  22,000 years ago (180 ppm CO2)  Southern Ocean surface temperatures peaked at 13.6°C, which is ~4-5°C warmer than today (~9°C)

Cruz et al., 2021  Argentina 1.7°C to 4.4°C warmer than today during the 1800s

The paleoclimatic history of Tixi Cave (Table 3, Figure 4), compared to the present, indicates a colder (−3.3°C) and dryer (−274.6mm) climate for the Pleistocene-Early Holocene transition (12,287±212–11,609±218ca BP). These cold and dry conditions remained during the Middle-Holocene (5592±79ca BP) with lower mean annual temperature (−2.4°C) and lower precipitation (−201.2mm) than the present. The change happened during the Late-Holocene IV (3496±81ca BP) with warmer and humid conditions than the current conditions, showing an increase in average annual temperature (+3.5°C) and annual precipitation (+90.8mm). These warm and humid conditions were kept during the rest of Late-Holocene III–I (1656±96–160±120 ca BP) with an increase in mean annual temperature between 1.7°C and 4.4°C and annual precipitation 27.5–263.6mm, higher than the current.

Nazarova et al., 2021  (full) East Russia 1.5°C warmer than present during Medieval Warm Period (750-1250 AD)

Shuttleworth et al., 2021 Sub-Antarctic Atlantic ~2°C warmer (see diamonds) ~4000 to ~5000 years ago

Allan et al., 2021  Greenland 5-7°C warmer (4-5°C vs. 10-12°C) than today from 7,500 to 5,500 years ago.

At presentsummer SST ranging from 4.0-5.2 °C (Ribergaard 2014). … Subzone B2 (from ~10 to 5 ka BP) is marked by…high summer SST ranging from 6 to 12 °C with an average of ~9 °C … Subzone A3 (from ~2.7 to ~1.3 ka BP) is characterized by cold conditions with summer SST of ~5 °C … Optimal thermal conditions…the July surface air temperature (SAT) estimated from pollen grains was ~10 to ~12 °C from ~7.5 to ~5.5 ka BP (Frechette & de Vernal 2009).

There is a relatively stable temperature during an interglacial period until there is a drop to a relatively stable temperature in a glacial period until there is a rise to a relatively stable temperature in an interglacial period…..🤓

There seems to be (in the CAGWers) a misconception that the periods of warm and cold are “steady state”, which they are not. Cold periods are interrupted by warmth, and warm periods are interrupted by cold. It’s both seasonal changes and periodicity, dependent on how much the Sun does for us in the way of keeping the planet a tad warmer than Mars in winter.

If there’s a way to “disabuse” them of the steady state stuff, please let me know. I have yet to run into anyone who is babbling “Earth will burn up!” or something like that. But if we are 18,000 years into this warm period, which has had repeated interruptions of COLD climate episodes, however brief they might be, interglacial periods take place during prolonged warm periods, and warming periods (which allow civilizations to flourish) take place during prolonged cold periods. This planet does not have a ‘steady-state’ physiology. Neither do the other planets in our system. We’re all lucky to have a warm climate right now.

And despite their desperation, the Warmunistas don’t seem to understand that this particular warming period is working in everyone’s favor. Without it, we’d all be hunkered down in caverns, making bowstrings our of sinews and trying to figure out how to shut the howling wind coming in through the cave entrance.

Maybe if the grants money stopped…. What??? I can speculate, can’t I?

The issue i have is, isn’t this all obvious? It was a well known fact until Mann and the climategate hockey team started rewriting history to support the narrative?

I mean, isn’t there endless physical evidence all over the world with sea levels, treelines being much further north where its now frozen tundra and much higher up mountain ranges, forests, villages and farms and churches and mines all being revealed under existing glaciers?

If there is so much endless evidence, why is there even a moments debate over the “hottest ever” bullshit?

It also gives governments an unfixable problem that they can use as a policy initiative that just keeps giving.

The rot in knowledge is so deep now that no one seeking elected office even attempts to offer an alternate view on the evils of CO2.

Imagine Boris going to the Queen and telling her she will need to rescind her statements on climate change because the science consensus was wrong. Imagine Biden acknowledging that Trump had it dead right on CO2.

It is going to take a loooong time before reality prevails. We now live in the metaverse and make-believe is king. The era best described as the “king has no clothes”. Who is brave enough to stand up and call out this garbage about “greenhouse gasses” and the way they supposedly control earth’s energy balance – pure tripe that so many people have swallowed, hook line and sinker!

Rick, the worst is that they, too (now) know they are wrong about Global warming. They believed it and even made testable predictions back in the late 1980s and 90s. When the predictions (belatedly changed to “projections”) failed miserably, and the Dreaded Pause set in.

Two things happened, a) a number of climate scientists were struck down with career ending psychological depression known as the “Climate Blues” (all that studying and 20yrs invested in clisci falsified!). b) The rest set about egregiously adjusting temperatures to fit the meme, had station moves and station exclusions to weed out those that weren’t supporting the cause and shifting goalposts to ‘correct’ the record.

Not a few commenting here are aware that the 1998 super el Niño did not set a new record. The late 1930s still held the record high temperature until it was pushed down a full degree C by J Hansen of GISS in 2007, on the eve of his retirement. “Father of Global Warming” indeed! So, yeah, they knew very well.

The CO2 Science website has plentiful evidence about the Medieval Warm Period (MWP). link

There are papers documenting the MWP on almost every square inch of the planet. Under the headings, there are summaries. Here is the summary for Global.

The evidence that Mann’s hockey stick is fraudulent is overwhelming.

Check out this interactive map of papers covering the MWP.

Often there is an argument that the MWP was localized (whatever that means) and did not have global implications like the current warming trend (whatever that means).

A single paper with a single proxy was allowed to write out the entire MWP. Undermining the research, data and gained knowledge of 100’s if not 1000’s of scientists!

Compare any of the above graphs with this one. I would file it under natural variability denialism. It’s like the cartoonist applied a huge low pass filter to the historical data and then took it off for the modern data. He’s either dishonest, or not as smart as he thinks he is.

“The entire paleoclimate community stands indicted.”

Yes, they do.

Any reasonable person familiar with climate data would reject the claims of Mann and his Hockey Stick team. The evidence is all there including written, regional surface temperature charts which put the lie to Mann’s and Phil Jones’ Hockey Stick distortions of reality, where they claim we are experiencing unprecedented warming today, when the evidence shows that is not the case.

Any climate scientist who thinks we are living in the “hottest times evah!” is either not very smart, or is in on the climate change scam.

There is no unprecedented warming today. The only thing showing unprecedented warming is Mann’s/Jones’ bogus, bastardized Hockey Stick charts, which were created in a computer whose rules were set by dishonest climate scientists (Mann-Jones) with a political agenda.

The U.S. has been in a cooling trend since the 1930’s, as has the rest of the world.

I think that happens naturally when you compare proxies, which a highly smoothed, to thermometer readings, which a highly un-smoothed. If for example one takes the average of the past fifty years of thermometer readings and still those numbers on the end of a proxy series, there is nothing to be alarmed about.

Tarasov and Wetterich is mind blowing. Siberia 5-15C warmer in July than today, during the Last Glacial Maximum? That opened way for migrations into Asia and the Americas. But that was mostly pre-Holocene.

The average June insolation over the northern land masses 12,000 years ago was 507W/sq.m. It is now down to 467W/sq.m., which is less than 1W/sq.m above the minimum of 400 years ago.

Climate is never the same on planet Earth. Reducing atmospheric CO2 to stabilise Earth’s climate is in the same category as sticking pins into a doll to harm an individual – voodoo science.

Those claims are BS. Provably so. Unmodified, regional surface temperature charts from all over the world show it was just as warm in the Early Twentieth Century as it is today, and that’s just one example of warmer periods in our past.

OK let’s see if you can provide what you are saying Tom.
Have you got a an unmodified temp chart for Asia that shows what you are saying? Or Australia, or England, maybe Japan? My understanding is that the unmodified charts show more warming than the modified. And that none of them show any part of the 20th century were warmer than today. Certainly not the global ones. And please stick to the recognised ones. Not the ones in the back of some hillbillies shed.

As you can see, it was just as warm in the Early Twentieth Century, as it is today, and this was the case all over the world where temperature readings were recorded.

So this means CO2 had added no additional warming to the atmosphere since that time, at least not enough to measure, and this means we have no need to bankrupt ourselves trying to regulate CO2.

And I have a lot more where those come from.

I ran across this little tidbit while looking for charts.

“RAH… Here’s what Wigley wrote to Phil Jones about “correcting” SSTs…

At 06:25 28/09/2009, Tom Wigley wrote:

“Phil, Here are some speculations on correcting SSTs to partly explain the 1940s warming blip. If you look at the attached plot you will see that the land also shows the 1940s blip (as I’m sure you know). So, if we could reduce the ocean blip by, say, 0.15 degC, then this would be significant for the global mean — but we’d still have to explain the land blip.”

The “blip” in the late 1930s was a positive northern hemisphere anomaly of 0.6°C. Look at Figure A.6 from the 1975 NAS report “Understanding Climatic Change”: A program for action.”

So here we have Phil Jones and crony conspiring to distort the temperature profile of the globe.

We are being lied to, people. This lie is doing untold damage to our societies, making us think CO2 is somehow a danger to us. It’s not.

Great job of compilation. 100% of climate scientists agree that during periods in the past (recent to long ago) the globe was significantly warmer than today (roughly 99% of the last 230,000,000 years).

And yet here we are, not extinct. The biosphere did not melt, the seas did not boil, the Catastrophic End of All Life didn’t happen. In fact, the Earth and her denizens got along quite nicely.

Warmer was better. Warmth was not a problem. The entire edifice of CAGW is built on the false fabrication of fear over a possible happenstance with ample precedence that would be beneficial to life should it occur.

February 1, 2022 3:25 am

Maybe this is OT for this thread but…I was wondering if someone could explain the validity, or lack thereof of infilling temperatures. I drove home from my GFs house this AM. Fifteen miles over major paved roads, mostly rural. The (Fahrenheit) temperature began at 2 degrees, dropped to minus 7, rose again to plus 1, and ended at minus 9. Fifteen miles and that much variation. This is the typical range every morning. The total elevation variance is about 100 feet. Can anyone explain then how infilling can possibly be valid or useful?

My own estimate for the Holocene Optimum in NW Canada Arctic coast (Tuktuyaktuk) is +4-6°C above present Ts.The fairly large white spruce in the picture, still rooted, is dated at 5000ybp. It is 100km S to reach the present treeline and another couple of hundred km further S where living white spruce of this size live today. Considering Arctic enhancement of double global anomaly figures. It suggests Global avg T of 2-3°C warmer than today, with no tipping points in sight!

Arctic Siberia was 3.5 to 5°C warmer than today during the peak of the last glacial”

The MBH papers dont go back anywhere near that far! The last glacial? Oh come on!

These papers are interesting, but only those showing a warmer MWP are Hockey Stick busting.
