Joe Bastardi: “Most Of The Land Masses On The Globe Are Cold.” Triple Crown Of Cooling Taking Hold.

At his latest Saturday Summary, Joe Bastardi serves up a few observations about the current weather across the globe.

Let’s recall that global warming was really supposed to be having an impact over the land masses, especially during the winters. But the land masses, at least this winter, aren’t cooperating at all. Globally temperatures are in the basement.

NCEP 2Mar2014

The above chart from NCEP shows that currently global temperatures are running below normal. Where’s all the heat gone to? Joe then shows how the alarmist claims that all the frigid US weather is due to global warming are completely bogus.

The above chart shows that except for Europe, all the other global land masses are colder than normal. Joe comments:

What’s remarkable about this is, with the exception of Europe, most of the land masses on the globe are cold. […] This is about the third or fourth winter in a row I’ve seen the hemispheric temperature and the land mass, especially the northern hemisphere, have been colder than normal, and this is part of this process that we described now you know since 2007, 2008, the triple crown of cooling.”

Joe expects that cooling to continue another 15 years – until 2030.

The global anomaly is currently at about -0.1°C. The only ones escaping especially brutal winter conditions in the northern hemisphere are Europeans and polar bears.

    This might explain why I see white stuff falling from the sky. The Pass between us and the Seattle area is 50 west and the snow just keeps coming. The snow pack grows and the irrigators are smiling.
    “Avalanche control work is scheduled to begin at 2:00 p.m. — generally takes from 20 minutes to two hours to complete.”

      that would be 50 miles west of me

        but the first comment is still in limbo

    What is there to say about the Arctic and Antarctic regions being warmer than normal?

    1. DirkH

      Antarctica: Only the peninsula. (Steig effect. Probably one thermometer smeared over a million square miles)
      Arctis: well yes, it’s warm. Arctis has been losing some sea ice in the past decades. Antarctis gained OTOH.
      Current trends for sea ice, NH and SH:

        There are a few things about the peninsula:
        Inhabited, fuel-oil-burning research stations, that grow in size and number of personnel. UHI.
        Increase in katabatic winds in recent times.

          Geothermal activity. IIRC, there are several active submarine and sub-ice volcanoes in the region. It’s on the boundary of 3 tectonic plates.

    A recent article on EIKE says that the upper atmosphere has cooled by 8⁰C in the past 40 years.

      I would think that a real interview with the Director of the Leibniz Institute would be in order.

      Perhaps he has a coherent explanation how the measurements of declining temperatures in the Mesosphere and Thermosphere tie in with GHG Warming Theory.

    Remember that weather is not climate, and that 17 years of no significant warming is not climate – it’s just a blip that happens when CO2 levels continue to rise.

    German solves problem of solar panels not producing at night, concentrates moonlight with big glass sphere filled with a liquid.

      He’ll probably find plenty of would-be climate saviors — long on goodwill but short on common sense — to crowd source his financing. Or he should perhaps just phone Tim Cook at Apple.
