In my last post I summarized the results of Ed Caryl’s analyses of stations far up in the Arctic, where temperature trends appear to follow the 60-year AMO cycle, and do not correlate at all with CO2.
Now I’ve been made aware that temperatures following the AMO are not exclusive to the Arctic. Blogsite digging in the clay has plotted temperatures from other cities located about the globe and came up with the same AMO sine wave trend, see below:
And what follows are more plots from Iceland, Norway and Russia on the left, and from USA on the right (Sorry about the poor quality. Better quality graphics can be seen at diggingintheclay here). Again the AMO wave appears there as well. Moreover, the 1930s and 40s in USA even look a bit warmer than today’s temps.
So poor little trace-gas CO2 just doesn’t get no respect, no matter where it goes. Every corner of the globe is ignoring this pip-squeak, climate-driver wannabe. CO2 is fading from the picture.
If the temperature has followed the AMO sine trend over the last 150 years, then why do we keep seeing hockey blades (nowadays without the stick-part) showing temperatures straight-lining up over the last 100 years or so?
Probably because GISS and others have changed historical data to make them fit their ideologized models – as unbelievable as it may sound. Steve Goddard’s site here explains how GISS has precisely done this with US temperatures by going back and flattening the graph.
The above comparator is from: Steve Goddard’s site. His post is short, but a very worthwhile read.
Before 2000, GISS showed a warmer 1930s and cooler current period. The AMO wave is clear to see. But today, after having fiddled with the data, GISS now shows a cooler 1930s, a warmer present day and a somewhat straighter line that tries to cloak the AMO effect.
Now you really know why they call it “man-made global warming”.
