In mid-January 2016 the Journal Scientific American run a story;
“Ask the Experts: Is El Niño to Blame for So Much Weird Outlook on US winter temperatureWeather?”,

Average SST Anomalies from January 2016written by Mark Fischetti. As usual the benefit reading the text tends to nil. But before this is discussed, the author demonstrates that he understands little of its trade. 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

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.

A corresponding situation existed in late 1939. 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 onlyWind direction in London and district throughout the winter period from 1788 to 1942 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

During the last 70 years atmospheric science in Europe and America has been reluctant to explain the extraordinary war winter 1939/40, 1940/41, and 1941/42. What surprises that also Russian scientists seem to have done nothing to bring light into this chapter of climatology, although their fathers and grandfathers suffered the most, first during the winter war in Finland 1939/40, and two year later in the Great Patriotic War with Germany. In only few months time, on 22. June, is the 70th anniversary of the German invasion of the Soviet Union. Only few months later …
