Not long ago the world experienced a ‘global cooling’, starting with thee extreme winters in Europe (1939/40 to 1941/42), which

continued across the Northern Hemisphere (1940 to mid-1970th).  As science failed to analyze, understand and explain the issue, this site discusses the thesis that human activities were the likely cause.  A thorough understanding of the phase of cooling several decades ago would have reduced any superficial talking about the reason and impact of the ‘cold blob’ currently active in the North Atlantic.

Europeans warm their winters, but science does not know why

Not knowing why the European winters are getting warmer and warmer is a shame. Not analyzing the potential reasons is a scandal. For years it is known that warming was the strongest over Scandinavia, especially in winter, (EEA-1). That can be easily 1_finbe connected to warmer seas. “Over the past 25 years the rate of increase in sea surface temperature in all European seas has been about 10 times faster than the average rate of increase during the past century(EEA-2). “In the North and Baltic Seas

Climate Skeptics weak on „Climate Criminals“

Not Adolf Hitler war against the entire world from 1939 to 1945 is investigated as climate crime (see previous post), but U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ): refers Exxon “climate crime” to FBI for decision on action. This comes only two months after a ‘Wanted’ campaign targeted Climate Criminals at Paris summit” (see WUWT). It couldn’t be much nastier. Unfortunately it is a failure of reasonable scientists and skeptics alike. Had Adolf Hitler been identified as the “First Climate Criminal “ many decades ago James

After many decades of global warming the first eight weeks in 1940 turned the wheel back to the Little Ice Age. Suddenly the 10_winter in Europe was the coldest since the early 19th Century. That was man-made, and responsible was Adolf Hitler. After merely four months of war in Europe, with extensive naval war in its regional seas and coastal waters, the weather broke down. Completely unexpected temperatures were permanently seven to ten degrees Celsius below average for weeks. The responsibility was clear, the war-monger who started World War II on 1st September 1939. That was in first

In mid-January 2016 the Journal Scientific American run a story;

He really claims that “the whole atmospheric system is so complicated that it never changes in the same way”. If that is the case, why paying for climate research? Obviously Fischetti does not know that the entire weather system is run by the laws of physics.

Did hot Europe (Fig1) contributed to another record cold in U.S. Eastern States? Europe did it last year in February 2015 (see NOAA image, Fig. 2), as the winter was very mild. Western Europe is under the influence of the weather system from West to East. Atlantic low pressure areas move east, unless cold continental high pressure air blocks them. These are the winters that Europe talks about. This succeeds very well when the North

Certain historical data are so exceptional that they cry for being thoroughly investigated. The cold record for Wales in January 1940 occurred in conditions, on land, in the air and at sea, which make it almost easy to trace the causes and effects to human activities. World War II has just started. But people, who talk about global warming, say they can forecast the future, but refuse to understand the past.

But while it is expected that today ending December is the hottest on record, December 1939 was the beginning of an extreme cold winter in Europe. The winter was special because it was the coldest since the end of the Little Ice Age around 1850, turning a global warming trend into a three decades lasting period of cooling, which happened after four months war,

THE ISSUE: Europe suddenly experienced its coldest winter in more than 100 years. Since the 19th century, winters had become successively milder. “The present century has been marked by such a widespread tendency towards mild winters that the ‘old-fashioned winters’, of which one had heard so much, seemed to have gone for ever. The sudden arrival at the end of 1939 of what was to be the beginning of a series of cold winters was therefore all the more surprising,” 

The newest NOAA: ”Arctic Report Card: Update for 2010” mention a phenomenal wind change that happened previously onlyoct3_3_10 three times before in the last 160 years, without mentioning the years. One winter was definitely the 1st war winter in WWII, 1939/40. There was for example a wind shift in Great Britain (see Fig. right). The temperature maps, than and now, prove a high similarity.

R. Scherhag explained the sudden change 1939/40 a few years later in this way:
“The temperature anomalies which were observed in the northern hemisphere in January 1940 can easily be explained by the occurrence of the
