Vinther’s SW Greenland Temperature Series
By Paul Homewood
In 2006, Vinther et al published a paper, “Extending Greenland temperature records into the late 18thC”. Below is the Abstract:
Since, they have updated the study, to include temperatures up to 2013. The temperature trends now look like this:
As we are well aware, 2010 was an anomalously warm year, but other than that no year this century has been warmer than 1929, 1941 and 1947.
We also know that the last two years in Nuuk have continued the downward trend.
It is clear that temperatures in SW Greenland saw a dramatic shift upwards during the late 19thC, culminating in the 1940s. But since then there is no evidence at all of the climate becoming warmer, simply a cyclical pattern of cooling/warming.
This, of course, is not what GHG theory predicts.
