Supposed “Record Heatwaves” As Global Temperatures Plummet

July 4, 2017

By Paul Homewood

There has been a lot of fake news about recent “record heatwaves” lately, all to promote the global warming fraud.

Unsurprisingly, none of them have mentioned that global temperatures, according to UAH, have collapsed by 0.24C between May and June, and are now only at 0.21C above the 30yr average, despite weak El Nino conditions this year.

If half of us are being grilled to death, there must be billions being frozen.

    the end is nigh, we’re all DOOMED.

    We’re nearing the solar minimum. Last time, in 2010, there were many jet stream blocking events. Mike Lockwood pointed out that jet stream blocking is due to low solar activity. That year the Moscow heat wave and Pakistan floods occurred – both due to the same blocking pattern.

    I’ve been watching the jet streams – every time there’s a squawk in the papers about the next UK heatwave the unusually sinuous jet stream is funnelling air up from Spain.

    Unfortunately for the climatistas CO2 emissions do not affect the Sun.

      Indeed the jet streams and the solar coronal hole that kept coming round over the winter period, sending sudden stratospheric warming type event over the North pole, that moved blocking highs around giving the northern hemisphere some very cold weather. Giving the USA, Russia, Siberia, China and Europe early and extended winter weather.

      Now it is said that globally it is the 2nd warmest first half of the year on record. Well sorry but highly averaged (and homogenized) global temperatures are a very poor indicators of climate. Climate effects are specific to a locality, or to a region only.

        “…the 2nd warmest first half of the year on record…”

        Well, it would be , wouldn’t it? As the stock I failed to sell at the top of the bubble plummets, it goes through all its former highs one by one – but travelling in the wrong direction. I used to be an investment manager and I know all the tricks of rationalising failure to clients. “A temporary setback, the underlying trend is up” is a good one. Sound familiar?

      Naturally, what is sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander. During 2016 I had to say “This is a blip in ‘the pausing’ caused by El Nino.” However this was TRUE – or, at least, the subsequent anomalies seem to say so.

      I note that the Global 2-meter anomaly for July so far is + 0.179 C while the average anomaly for the WHOLE of the last ten years is… +0.174 C

        I like to quote James Thurber. Judging by the lack of reaction no one is interested, but here is another:

        “It was one of those hot days when the earth is uninhabitable;even as early as ten o’clock in the morning, even on the hill where I live under the dark maples.”

        That was the 1930s. Real heat.

        Even in Toronto, in the 1960s, it was hot like that.
        Now, I get mournful letters from old friends: “Awful summer. Never once felt like I was dying!”

    Failing to recognize that CO2 has no significant effect on climate is an egregious mistake but is dwarfed by ignoring the potential disasters of what actually does. Leftclick my name to discover the three factors in an equation which matches the measured average global temperature trend 98% 1895-2016.

      I have read your paper with which I am basically in agreement. I would just make one point, which was made to me recently.

      One talks loosely about “water vapor as a ghg”, when one really means to analyse ALL H20 in the atmosphere. A molecule of H20 is aloft in the atmosphere ten days on average. The number of transitions between vapor phase and water phase is unknowable, but large. I was looking hard at the edges of some fluffy clouds yesterday. They only lasted a few minutes. One could almost SEE them boiling away into vapor. Clouds are water and vapor, not vapor alone.

      Of course, water absorbs infra-red extremely easily, and is a good substitute for vapor in the process of thermalisation (and a better substitue from the point of view of reflecting sunlight to space).

      It seems to me at least possible that the absorption of infra-red in clouds leads to instant vaporisation of the droplets. Excess absorption (compared to original calculations) of energy by clouds is associated with more water vapor measured in the clouds.

        Dave – I have been led to believe that water does not absorb IR but they were referring to bulk water like a lake or swimming pool. The story might be way different with the micron size particles of water or ice in clouds. I agree there is both water vapor and particles of water or ice in clouds, in fact, by definition it is saturated (or super saturated if lacking condensation nuclei).

        IR energy could be absorbed by WV molecules, thermalized to produce warming of surrounding molecules causing the water or ice particles to evaporate in the warmer environment. IMO this process could also explain your observations.

      Please move away from using their vocabulary and call water & CO2 something like ‘IR active (aka ghg)’.

      A small move but makes it plain that greenhouse have no place in descriptions of climate weather effects. It also help to separate the often used mistake of calling IR radiation ‘heat’ (which it is not).

      Infra-Red is absorbed SO readily by water that it never PENETRATES (unlike visible light) below a very thin outer layer.

      It is uncertain whether this means that the outer skin, receiving a lot of energy into a very small mass, is automatically vaporised, carrying the incident energy with it. Or whether the incident energy eventually is mixed in with deeper layers. In the first case, energy of downwelling IR would act as if it is being reflected. In the second case it would act as absorbed.

      As a technical point of physics, even REFLECTED light is actually absorbed and reemitted, all be it with no change in wavelength, and almost instantly – in a femto-second.

    Welcome to the upside down world of official climatology. Expect the same mantras to be parroted ad infinitum regardless of reality.

    Paul, I have just emailed you a link to another temperature fraud case, this time the Australian BOM have been caught changing Raw Data.

    I still say that what the Satellites measure is NOT what we experience on the ground, the Northern Hemisphere experienced some record breaking cold in June, but that has not shown up in the Satellite anomalies, NH was +0.32 whereas the SH was only +0.09.
    I am sure that the Satellites are actually measuring the transient heat leaving the Planet, not what we get at ground level.

      The Global 2-Meter Anomaly measures something at the height of everyone’s nose throughout the world.

      Maybe it doesn’t mean much, but there is nothing which means MORE.

    So we’re a mighty 0.21C above the 30 year average? 1/5th of 1 f*****g degree? That’s it? Doesn’t this rather make a mockery of claims of impending catastrophe?

    Still skiing in July in California:
    ‘Squaw Valley Ski Resort and Mammoth Mountain are among the resorts that are still open for skiing. Squaw says it will stay open as long as possible. That could mean through summer, fall and into the start of the next ski season.’

    Somebody phone the


    Its the second occurrence of warm dry weather in London this summer.
    In the history of climate changes this must be unprecedented!
    Thermometers across the country are registering above average temperatures, and Gravesend, Heathrow, and parts of Surrey are actually registering very recordishly high(ish) temperatures.

      My wife is making jam and fudge right now, both of which have critical precise temperature requirements during manufacture.
      She has three expensive dedicated sugar thermometers to provide the requisite precision, but each of the three differs from the others by up to three degrees when positioned together in the boiling.
      Who determines the accuracy of climate thermometers relative to each, to three decimal places, and just how do they achieve this on a world wide basis, bearing in mind that my wife’s saucepan is but twelve inches in diameter.
      Do they find themselves in a jam and then fudge the figures?

        Computers can do fake accuracy all day long 😉

        “Computers can do fake accuracy all day long.”

        I just told my version of Maple to calculate everything to 40 decimal places instead of 10. Now, nothing can go wrong with my predictions in the stock market!

    So this scare started what, in 1988, 1989; something like that. And it’s 2017 and all we have to show for it is less than a quarter of a degree warming?

    I feel cheated somehow.

    Where’s my global warming?
