President Barack Obama is linking warm March weather in the U.S. to man-made global warming. See: ‘Nice Weather’ Making Obama a ‘Little Nervous’: “It gets you a little nervous about what is happening to global temperatures. “When it is 75 degrees in Chicago in the beginning of March, you start thinking.”
Obama seems to be implying that the U.S. warm spell means that global temperatures are also warm.
Climate Depot is happy to provide President Obama the answer to his temperature jitters. The continental U.S. — which covers just 2% of the Earth’s surface – has been very warm, but global temperatures have been cooling. There has been record or near record snow and ice in Alaska, the Arctic, Antarctic, a brutally cold winter in Europe and even parts of the Southern Hemisphere are facing a year without a Summer.
Despite a warm winter in the continental U.S., global temperatures have seen a cooling trend. Even this years early Cherry Blossom bloom in DC fails to alarm. See: ‘The cherry blossom bloom date in 1946 (March 14 or before) was earlier than current year — CO2 was a little over 310 ppm in 1946′ & 1941 Heatwave Caused DC Cherry Blossoms To Appear Six Months Early & Japan in 2012: Unusually Cold weather delays blooming of early cherry blossoms
Update: March 19, 2012: What is Pres. Obama ‘nervous’ about? Warm March Days On The Decline In Chicago — ‘There is nothing particularly unusual about this weather’ — ‘Chicago has had seventeen March days over 80 degrees, including two in 1907, five in 1910, 1928, 1938, two in 1939, 1945, 1981 and three in 1986. All of those years had CO2 below 350 ppm’
Below is a small sampling of information that may serve to calm Obama’s global temperature jitters.
2012 Is 0.6C Cooler Than 2010 So Far: ‘All of claimed warming of 20th century is gone’ — NASA’s Hansen ‘has gone silent…he is only interested in data which backs his belief system’ — ‘All of the claimed warming of the 20th century is gone, despite solar max and neutral ENSO’
Global temperatures ‘plummeting’: ‘Coldest February Day In At Least 10 Years’ — ‘Sunday was the coldest February day in at least ten years. We are at solar max and ENSO is neutral, so Hansen has no excuses’
Global Warming? Those Balmy U.S. Temps of February 2012 Were 2.7 Degrees Below Feb. Temperatures of 1930 — ‘The enjoyably warm February winter that many in U.S. experienced did not set a ‘global warming’ record – February 1930 temps significantly above those of 2012′
Is Warmist Jeff Masters Blind In One Eye? Masters claims, if forecasts hold, the late-winter heat wave in N. America will be without any observed precedent’ — ‘Masters only sees half of the picture. Record cold in Alaska, British Columbia and the west coast of the US might also be considered part of North America’ – See Map
Report: No Warming For 17 Years — Global ‘temps have been dropping since 2005, & are coldest now in last 17 years. Game over for alarmists, based on their own rules’ — Flashback 2003: ‘In order to separate human-caused global warming from the ‘noise’ of purely natural climate fluctuations, temperature records must be at least 17 years long, according to climate scientists’
Archibald’s PDF report: (Global cooling section begins on page 36): ‘Carbon dioxide’s heating effect is real but minuscule…Carbon dioxide is tuckered out as a greenhouse gas…Global cooling may well jeopardize grain production and threaten potential famines…Rate of sea level rise is controlled by solar cycles’
New study: The long sunspot cycle 23 predicts a significant temperature decrease in cycle 24 — Norwegian Scientists: Jan-Erik Solheima, Kjell Stordahlb, Ole Humlum: ‘A 1 °C or more temperature drop is predicted 2009–2020 for certain locations. ► Solar activity may have contributed 40% or more to the last century temperature increase. ► A lag of 11 years gives maximum correlation between solar cycle length and temperature’
Greenland & Alaska Have More Ice Than 1979: ‘1979 was peak year for Arctic ice, yet 2012 has more ice around Greenland & Alaska than 1979 did’ — ‘Scientists have been busy telling us that missing Arctic ice is causing record cold in many places this winter’
Antarctic Peninsula Sea Ice Almost Double Normal: ‘Hansen,Trenberth & Gore went to the Antarctic Peninsula to highlight melting ice. The ice there is close to 200% of normal’ — ‘Will they tell the truth,be silent,or flat out lie about it? The interior of Antarctica is forecast to get down to -65F during this fine mid-summer week. Hopefully the Three Stooges are there’
New Study: Russian Astrophysicist from Russian Academy of Science Predicts Global Cooling: ‘From 2014 we can expect start of deep cooling with a Little Ice Age in 2055’ — Habibullo I. Abdussamatov, Pulkovo Observatory of the Russian Academy of Science, St. Petersburg, 196140, Russia — Applied Physics Research, Vol. 4, No. 1 February 2012: Abstract: ‘We can expect the onset of a deep bicentennial minimum of total solar irradiance (TSI) in approximately 2042±11 and the 19th deep minimum of global temperature in the past 7500 years – in 2055±11.’
Global warming Causing Extraordinary WarmCold With HeavySnowless Winters: ‘These morons have completely lost their minds. Global warming is causing cold winters with heavy snow, that are also very warm with very little snow’
Changing Size Of The US Landmass: During cold, snowy periods around DC – the US only occupies 2% of the Earth. However, this winter has been warm on the east coast, so climate experts tell us that Virginia now occupies almost 100% of the planet
Another Global Warming Icon Bites The Dust: ‘The cherry blossom bloom date in 1946 (March 14 or before) was earlier than current year which climate morons are of course blaming on global warming. CO2 was a little over 310 ppm in 1946′
