Typhoons Not Increasing In Japan

October 22, 2019

By Paul Homewood


Repost from No Tricks:


In Japan, like many other places around the world, the media like to tell audiences how sea surface temperatures around Japan are rising due to man-made global warming.

But, as is often the case, the data and facts tell the opposite story.

What follows is a chart depicting sea surface temperatures around Japan.


As we can plainly see above, the sea surface temperatures around Japan rapidly cooled since the start of the new century, before spiking briefly around 2016. The overall trend for the past 21 years has been steady.

Japanese media also like claiming that the number of typhoons is on the rise as well. But here too the data from the JMA show how the opposite is the reality.


Full story here.


It is worth pointing out that the spikes in SSTs coincide with the 1998 and 2015 El Ninos

    The data obviously hasn’t been suitably “Quality Controlled” to show warming.
    I am sure NASA can show the Japanese how to do it properly.

      Maybe it is bushido – the Japanese code of honour that stops them from fiddling the data like NASA, NOAA, BOM etc have.

    We have also been told that the intensity of typhoons is increasing. What can be seen among the published data to support or refute that?

      As a general point without reference to the data, I would posit that modern day measuring of hurricanes and typhoons is much more intense and accurate using data from space readings than it ever was in times past.. Ergo, it’s like comparing apples and pears!

    Off thread, but when I was arguing with the chaplain to the Bishop of Portsmouth about the Synod’s lunatic virtue signalling fossil fuel disinvestment policy, he said that ‘as far as he could see Paul Homewood was not particularly qualified to talk about climate change’. I remarked that it was typical of the Left to attack the man and not the ball and recommended that he should occasionally take a glance at this website (where he would find such posts as this).
