Germany Now Recording Coldest Spring In 40 Years! “…Climate Experts Running Out Of Arguments…”!

The recent weather in Germany indicates everything but global warming and widespread drought, which climate experts have been telling us would be the case unless we stopped burning fossil fuels fast.

Germany’s mean temperature trend continues falling sharply (1998 – 2012). 2013 so far is well below normal. (Source: Josef Kowatsch, data from German Weather Service).

Today the online Augsburger Allgemeine reports that the statistics for the 2013 German meteorological spring (March-April-May) have been 95% tabulated and show that this year’s German spring is the “coldest in in decades“. The Chiemgau24 news site reports that it is the coldest spring in 40 years.

This past weekend, snow even fell in parts of Germany at elevations down to 600 meters.

No reasons are cited as to why the spring 2013 is so cold. The Arctic is covered with ice and so it can’t be an exposed Arctic sea disrupting atmospheric patterns.

Chiemgau24 writes (my emphasis):

March was too cold, April was a little warmer than normal, and May will likely wind up a little colder than normal. [...]

Five colder than normal winters in a row, the coldest March in decades (in the northeast in 130 years) and now the coldest spring in over 40 years…if that doesn’t lead some climate experts to run out of arguments…”

The Chiemgau24 quotes meteorologist Dominik Jung concerning models:

‘Here the long-term weather models from some international weather services had indicated a “warmer than average and sunny April and May”. But we got just the opposite. On Sunday morning it even snowed again down to 600 meters elevation,’ explained Meteorologist Dominik Jung of the weather portal www.wetter.net.

‘Currently the mean temperature for spring 2013 (calculated from March 1 to May 25) is at 6.1°C. That’s the coldest spring in decades. It’s been more than 40 years since it’s been that cold. In 1970 the average temperature for spring was only 6.0°C,’ explains weather expert Jung.”

This might be a good time for the German Weather Service to think about dropping it’s long outdated temperature chart logo at the header of its website www.dwd.de/.

    Love your site Pierre. I tell my friends here in the US that Europe is awakening from the fantasy already…. even as we are still bathed in propaganda here.

    Pierre, get out while you can and come home. Oh, wait.

    Mount Mansfield, in Stowe, Vt., had 13.2 inches of snow Sunday, the latest in the season it’s ever had a foot. [about 35 cm]

    Whiteface Mountain spokesman Jon Lundin says 36 inches of white powder has blanketed the nearly 5,000-foot tall mountain in the Adirondacks. That has forced the Olympic Regional Development Authority to close Whiteface Veteran’s Memorial Highway on the backside of the mountain.

    I nearly had some snow at home near Concord NH. People on hills around town should have seen snow falling, if not accumulating.

    400 ppm – is there anything it can’t do?

    A few years back we were bombarded with warnings of earlier and earlier springs. Today, the springs are coming a bit late but they have remained silent. As time goes by they are running out of things to scream about and have resorted to pointing at ANY weather event as a sign of global warming. It’s really sad they are ending up like this. Why can’t they eat humble pie and surrender?

    1. TheJollyGreenMan

      Jimbo, they, the climate change scientists, have their snouts stuck in the trough eating only the best prime steaks and lobster; pies are for the slobs and peasants, especially served with such a high-salt filling.

      I would have hoped that by now the politicians would have called their bluff, but our lot here in the UK are too preoccupied by the real problems and issues facing us today: gay marriages, banning Lads magazines, etc.

      So until the general population wake up from their, what shall we call it, brainwashed and zombiefied state?, nothing will change.

    2. Mindert Eiting

      Jimbo, if I were a musician in the Titanic orchestra, knowing that I had no chance because ladies and children go first, perhaps I would play the trumpet till the bitter end. No time for humble pie and surrender. What would you do?

    Jesus said “I am the truth”, and Pontius Pilot said “and what is the truth?” probably in a sarcastic way fitting for someone who knew the “rules” of warfare and the politics of Rome.

    Unfortunately, the truth actually does not count for anything. It never did and it never will. Not in politics, family justice, science, nor anything else. The battle is never about truth is is about ideologies.

    For the warmists it doesn’t matter what the evidence it, everything is caused by warming – it is not falsifiable. Everything fits because it has to fit. For the evolutionist it doesn’t matter what the evidence is, it is all caused by random mutations – it is not falsifiable. Everything fits because it has to fit.

    The history of Germany in the 1900’s to 1940s is a sad tale of ideology gone mad, but those who would normally be expected to uphold the truth were besotted with a lie and became the perpetrators themselves. Doctors, scientists, clergymen etc.

    In family law, it is not the truth that counts it is the social engineering project to redefine the relationships in society, especially the role of the male.

    What goes around comes around and the AGW scam is just the same old recycled rubbish. It will not confess it’s errors or fallacies, rather it will morph into something else and still keep the high ground. It doesn’t care about truth and so this weapon makes little impact on them.

    There are many signs of the AGW crumbling, but there are more signs of arrogant obstinance with a determination to win the AGW war whatever.

    I had a look and yep you are right, I had to laugh at the disclaimer from the above website and it goes like this [English version] – and I quote:

    “The information presented on this website has been chosen and prepared with great care and to the best of our knowledge. However, we do not guarantee the timeliness, accuracy and completeness of the information contained on this website.”

    “we do not guarantee the timeliness, accuracy and completeness of the information ” ……………………………………. hmm how about that?

    For the German Weather Service. Get a clue. Here are the graphs that should be up there

    take your pick, just tell the truth ( for a change) at least the UKMET office is starting to show some sanity on this matter ( not alot.. but some)

      German propaganda institutions use the language barrier to their advantage; our journalists do their best to stem the tide of inconvenient information from the Anglosphere to keep the German eco brainwashed.

    Here is what really matters, read: Juggernauts roll on:
    “A clue to just how distant the thinking is from the real world lies in the COM final, which blithely tells us that “snow tourism” is one of the economic sectors which is “already facing the impact of climate change”, despite the industry just having enjoyed a record season.

    But now, with “adaptation” embedded in the very heart of Commission policy, there will be no rooting it out.

    This is the intellectual equivalent of the herpes virus – the only sure way of destroying it is to destroy the host.

    And, before we can rid ourselves of it, that is what we will have to do.

    Meanwhile, the juggernaut rolls on, and on, and on …”

    One of the most sufficient sources for the cold May in NW Europe is the North Sea, with a huge SST anomaly towards the Baltic
    ___status 28May13: http://climate-ocean.com/2013/b/8_4_49.jpg ,
    which may indicate that human activities contribute to the cold North Sea; more http://climate-ocean.com/2013/8_4.html#3rd.%20Addendum:
    Today at least, the North Sea separates the N-Atlantic weather from the continental weather:

    It’s easy to see why they are running out of arguments when you understand what is really causing the Uranus dilemma

    Consideration of the planet Uranus very clearly indicates that radiative models (and any type of “Energy Budget” similar to those produced by the IPCC) can never be used to explain observed temperatures on Uranus. We can deduce that there must be some other physical process which transfers some of the energy absorbed in the upper levels of the Uranus atmosphere from the meagre 3W/m^2 of Solar radiation down into its depths, and that same mechanism must “work” on all planets with significant atmospheres.

    Uranus is an unusual planet in that there is no evidence of any internal heat generation. Yet, as we read in this Wikipedia article, the temperature at the base of its (theoretical) troposphere is about 320K – quite a hot day on Earth. But it gets hotter still as we go further down in an atmosphere that is nearly 20,000Km in depth. Somewhere down there it is thought that there is indeed a solid core with about half the mass of Earth. The surface of that mini Earth is literally thousands of degrees. And of course there’s no Solar radiation reaching anywhere near that depth.

    So how does the necessary energy get down there, or even as far as the 320K base of the troposphere? An explanation of this requires an understanding of the spontaneous process described in the Second Law of Thermodynamics, which is stated here as …

    “The second law of thermodynamics: An isolated system, if not already in its state of thermodynamic equilibrium, spontaneously evolves towards it. Thermodynamic equilibrium has the greatest entropy amongst the states accessible to the system”

    Think about it, and I’ll be happy to answer any questions – and explain what actually happens, not only on Uranus, Venus, Jupiter etc, but also on Earth.
