A lot has been wrong with the handling of historical temperature data

Posted: 27 July 2019

For a long time, a lot has been wrong with the handling of historical temperature data available for the last 150 years or so. They are misrepresented, interpreted or simply falsified. It is not only frustrating, but also dangerous for a sensible climate debate and what real dangers humanity may face in the future.

Now Kenneth Richard, 25th July 2019, has taken on, at NOTRICKZONE, to clarify a few facts. The whole title is: “1970s: Earth Warmed 0.6°C From 1880-1940 And Cooled

Only 13 days after landing troops on the shores in Normandy on 06 June 1944, an unexpected storm lashed across the English

Channel on 19 June 1944 lasting three days. From Britain to France the operation and supply area for the invasion was severely affected. 800 ships and floating units were

THE NEW YORK TIME started reporting about the Battle of Jutland on 03 June 1919. The weather conditions before, during and after the sea battles were rarely mentioned and never analyzed. Only at the end of a report on 06 June 2016, the one sentence appeared: “The hazy weather was Germany’s friend, as it necessitated action at closer range”, (see the entire report HERE: 28_Haze Germ friend_June06 ) The issue is much more

What contributed naval warfare to remarkable winter
and the Arctic sea ice in summer 1917?

Posted 31st March 2019

Do more than 5000 submerged merchant ships, two extremely winters, and the largest sea ice extent in the North Atlantic (NA) during the entire last Century, in summer 1917, fit together? Yes, at least it is the only convincing explanation for the three extraordinary events. The link is the naval war during the First World War (WWI), causing the extreme cold winter in Western Europe 1916/17, the NA sea-ice in summer 1917, and the record cold winter  1917/18 in North

The broad lack of differentiation prevent useful results

Sea surface data have fascinated science since long. Sea going vessels were requested to collect water temperature around the world frequently, often once on each watch. But what are they worth today if the method of measurements changed several times, and the type of ships and the sample taking seaman varied on a daily basis. There are many other variations, for example the sea surface conditions by wind and height of waves. While that inherits uncertainty, any attempt to adjust them unison will improve little if anything.  

Western Europe mild winter temperatures – Dec/Jan/Feb.  2018/19

The unusual winter conditions can be easily attributed the North Atlantic and adjacent seas in Norther Europe. One low air pressure is followed by the next follows. They chase each other and push Siberian high pressure the cold air eastwards the Ural Mountains. Is this constellation that North America fell prey to extreme cold and snowy winter condition? By the end of January the US Midwest was paralyzed by winter freeze colder than Antarctica. Has the unhindered move of Atlantic cyclones across Europe eastward contributed?

Weather ‘blocked’ by North Sea offshore wind farms and shipping?

In Northern Europe winter hasn’t shown up. The current status is shown in a number of Figures. The situation is far away from usual. Current February is several degrees above ling time average. Will it go on this way, or will harsh winter conditions emerge in spring? Presumably only few meteorologists will try to make conclusive forecast on Europe’s weather in forthcoming March, April and May. Their computer models rely on statistics. Rarely do they included two factor influencing Northern Europe’s winter conditions, namely the influence

The shown figures indicate clearly that it started in the Europe-Arctic section!

One cannot support enough any attempt for a better understanding of the Early Twentieth Century Warming (ETCW), the most pronounced warming in the historical global climate record prior to the recent warming. At beginning of World War Second (WWII), the Northern Hemisphere was very warm, particularly to regional anomalies like the Arctic warming in the 1920s and 1930s. Until now the attention to these two decades has been

Caused reduced air moisture extreme weather condition?

Cold winter spells in the U.S.A. and Canada are very common. This year it lasted a while, but last weekend’s snowfall could have been the coldest snowstorm in Montreal in a century [weather service]. On Sunday, temperatures dropped below -15 degrees (5 F) and snowfall was expected to exceed 25 cm (almost a foot). This Week (21-26. Jan) winter storm Indra will track across the nation’s northern tier, spreading snow and ice from the West to the Midwest and Northeast [weather.com].

The sun, the oceans and maritime activities matter on air warming

The pervious posting was about facts and ignorance. Now it seems prudent to take on another article published by The New Times: Ocean Warming Is Accelerating Faster Than Thought, New Research Finds.(restrict access) by Kendra Pierre-Louis. It is a very solid work, and in any way a fine journalistic account. What can a writer do more than summarize what climate science publish and believe in. But if one considers the dimension of basic factors involved on ocean warming matters, sciences seem so far
