RSS Updated For June – Temperature Decline Continues

July 8, 2016

By Paul Homewood 



RSS have also now published their global temperature anomalies for June, so we can update the comparison with 1998 for them and UAH:







RSS anomalies have now declined by a full half degree since their peak in February.

Both datasets have now been tracking below 1998 levels for the last three months. In 1998, temperatures picked up in the NH summer, so it may be that we see temperature anomalies continue to track lower for the next few months.

Either way, it looks as if there will be no statistically significant difference between this year’s temperatures and 1998’s.

    Note this natural downward variation is well in excess of anything rightly or wrongly attributed to trace gases, that have in any case only ever increased in modern times.

    “…it looks as if there will be no statistically significant difference between this year’s temperatures and 1998’s”

    And consequently, it looks like global temperatures have not changes significantly since 1997-1998. The pause will soon be back and longer than ever.

      Oops. Didn’t catch my typo until right after I hit the “Post Comment” button: “changes” should be “changed”. I hate when that happens. Wish WP had a comment edit option for those submitting comments, similar to FB.

        Anyone have an idea what the pause will look like once it returns?

    NOAA just released their June temperatures for the contiguous US 48 states. The six month JAN-JUN temperature trend from 1998-2016 is still down, albeit only 0.08°F per decade.

    Mickey Mann’s Pennsylvania is down 1.0°F per decade. Al Gore’s Tennessee? Down 0.6°F per decade. Tennessee hasn’t had an annual high average temperature record since 1921.

    Reblogged this on Climatism and commented:
    The rapid decline of both global temp data sets to levels below 1998, completely trashes “hottest year evah” claims trotted out by global warming alarmists…

    A reminder that SSTs dominate global temperature datasets.

    ’15/’16 tracked higher in 15 of the 18 last 18 months … what’s your point?

      Yes, I’ve often made the point that this El Nino event has been much longer lasting than 1997/8, hence we came into this year with higher temperatures.

    A feature of the 1997/8 El Nino was that after the average temperatures were (trivially) higher after the event than before. Almost a ratchet effect. If will be interesting to see if a similar pattern emerges in the next 12-36 months.

    BBC pushing “warmest June” ever ..That was mentioned in seemingly all news headlines this month and “16th straight month of warming”
    They didn’t mention by what data set.
