Dr. Roy Spencer’s site has posted the UAH MSU temperature for January 2011 and, as we see, the warm temperatures are gone. A La Nina (cool equatorial Pacific water surface temperature) is raging and is linked to playing a role in the storms now hitting Australia and the US.
Let’s recall that just a few short years ago climate “scientists” were claiming that La Ninas were expected to become rare and that the Pacific would find itself more and more in an El Nino mode. Things are turning out differently though. Time to get back to the drawing board for the 7,000th time.

And what’s with global warming causing more preciptiation? The data also suggests the opposite, at least oceanic.
Trend here is downwards for that too. Using the global warming theory, the warmth is supposed to cause more precipitation, and so this indicates the globe is cooling.
For the catastrophe junkies out there who need their daily dose of catastrophic signs, it looks like a cold turkey day today. Maybe the crack-catastrophe pushers GISS and PIK can help you.
