Cooling Planet – Joe Bastardi Reports

Joe Bastardi at WeatherBell here brings us two short reports that show cooling is in, and warming’s out. Bad news for Rob Honeycutt and the warmists who bet on a warmer second 21st century decade.

2011 third coldest year of the decade.

First 2011 happens to have been the third coldest year in the last decade, according to satellite measurements and John Christy of the University of Alabama.

Globally averaged, Earth’s atmosphere was 0.15 C (0.27 degree Fahrenheit) warmer than the 30-year average in 2011; That was less than half of the warming anomaly seen in 2010.”

USA was a full degree cooler than in 1999!

With constant nail-biting over warming, the media are obviously disconnected from reality, as data from the NOAA show that 2011 was cooler than 1999 and cooler than some of the years in the 1980s. Bastardi writes:

Despite claims that it continues to get warmer and warmer, this table from NOAA/NCDC indicates that 2011 was in the middle of the pack, going all the way back to 1980 (the start of the “global warming era”). Such remote years as 1981, 1986, 1987, and 1990 were hotter.”

    Don’t worry Mate. The Warmistas will find a way to spin it warmer, then they’ll say you are a crook for not paying out on the bet.

    They’re probably running around the World applying battery powered hairdryers to every thermometer they can reach, because for them it’s about the Religion, and any trick they have to pull to salve their conscience and make Gaia happy is deemed kocher.

    Brisbane’s kinda funny right now. We were told a wet Summer was on the way. December was dry. January? No rain yet and the forecast is for the odd shower through the end of next week (14 January), though thankfully we are FINALLY going to get some hottish weather.

    Maybe a drought is starting? Please no, I can’t stand the thought of Tim Flannery telling us all over again that we will not get any rain forever. Man, how is it that a guy who gets it so fundamentally wrong gets so much adulation???

    rant \off

    Yes… cooling. Wouldn’t that be nice. Let’s just ignore the facts, and click our shoes together and tell ourselves that global cooling is in.

    For anyone curious about FACTS, you can look at this link at NOAA:

    For the last 365 days in the US, the daily high temp records have exceeded the daily minimum temp records by a ratio of 3.3 to 1.0 (29,298 to 8,968 as of 02/03 in the morning). If you look at just the LAST MONTH…it is even worse.

    Over the last 30 days, there have been 2,949 new daily high records (ie highs for a specific day) while there have only been 160 new daily low records. The ratio is almost 20 to 1, new high records to new low records.

    Aberdeen, South Dakota set a new record high for January 5th of 63 degrees which beat the old record or 46 degrees by 17 degrees. Phillip, South Dakota set a new record high 74 degrees which beat the old record of 46 degrees by 28 DEGREES. Think about that for a minute. A new record high which was 28 degrees HIGHER than the old record high for January 5th (

    Global warming has been happening for at least the last 120 years. For the last 30 years, it has gotten worse. The last 30 days are “off the charts” as far as record high temperatures go.

    So, please show me some FACTS with LINKS, that show me that global cooling is taking place. I look forward to seeing them.
