Slightly Cold Winters In Germany Caused By Global Warming

According to the incredibly dim Geoffrey Lean:

 

It’s been a frequent debating point from climate sceptics. Recent cold winters in Britain and Europe, they often say, undermine the case that the world is growing warmer. Scientists have tended to reply that that is to mix up the short-term effects of weather in a particular region with long term climate change, and that the cold winters therefore are of little significance.

But now new research suggests that both are wrong – that the icy weather is indeed evidence of change but that, counterintuitively, it reinforces the case for global warming rather than the reverse.

Research at Tokyo University and Japan’s national Institute of Polar Research – published in the current issue of the journal Nature Geoscience – has linked the cold winters with the “rapid decline of Arctic sea ice”, caused by warming, over the past decade.

The most comprehensive computer modelling study on the issue to date, it concludes the risk of severe winters in Europe and Northern Asia has doubled as the result of the climate change.

 

 

Apparently nobody told the Germans.

    They are just taking the piss. They surely know that only the certified green lunatics buy this nonsense now.

    Even my very warmest brother snorted at this and has changed direction. You see these prickolata’s losing ground and confidence on all of the discussion boards now. People have seen through them and this continual shark jumping is ludicrous.

    I see Ann Widdicome and others have put out a statement on the 6th anniversary of the Climate Change Act saying it will cripple Britain and if a vote was held today it would never be passed by Parliament.

    If severely cold winters are due to lack of Arctic sea ice, one would expect the impact to be concentrated in the Northern Hemisphere. However, there seems to have been extremely cold winters in the Peruvian Andes, just South of the Equator. These were in mid-2008, 2009 & 2010.
    Coincidence, or was it a global phenomena?

    Like I said before
    by accident they got it right
    it is getting cooler
    due to natural climate change, happening now,
    it is globally cooling

    Thank goodness for global warming otherwise we would be under a mile if ice!

    Hello Paul.

    The graph linked to at GISS/NASA for Berlin doesn’t look like your one at all. It has a strong-ish upward trend. Is this an “adjustment” problem?

    Or is yours generated from an earlier unadjusted data set?

    Thank you.

      Hi Paul

      The GISS graph is for annual temperatures. At the bottom is the link for the actual data I used for winter temps.
