Bitter, record-breaking cold in North America, Antarctica reaching near record sea ice extent, Arctic sea ice recovering a third of its ice in just a year, first snow in Cairo in 112 years, and record snow in Jerusalem – signs of global colding are mounting rapidly. And it’s not even a La Nina year.
Temperatures in decline…adding on 2013 to Germany’s mean temperature chart. Source: Josef Kowatsch of the European Institute for Climate and Energy (EIKE), data from the DWD German Weather Service (2013 approximated).
Another sign is Central Europe refusing to warm further. Meteorologist Dominik Jung at Wetter.net here reports that Germany’s 2013 year was the 2nd coldest in a decade. The mean temperature was only 0.4°C over the 1961 – 1990 mean. Only 2010 was “a bit colder”.
Hey! That means the coldest 2 years of the decade happened just recently. Clearly the recent flurry of cold events shows that the globe is cooling, thus contradicting the global warming hypothesis. Alarmists are desperate to explain why.
Also read 2000 cold and snow records broken.

In the UK – Provisional CET 1961-1990 anomaly (up to 12th December): -0.00
And that is with a mild, up to now, December!
PG: Thank you for three excellent postings in a row, though I don’t think the alarmists (from above) are desperate to explain why – they will now go straight on to the phase where down is really up and colder is really hotter, and so on.
Would that we had such news published over here in the US.
Rather, we have the three monkeys [hear no…; see no…; speak no…] of our commercial news media doling out our “climate news.”
Do we hear about the “2000 cold and snow records broken”? Nope.
Do we hear about the frigid temperatures in Germany and Europe, such as you’ve reported above, Pierre? Nope.
Do we hear about record ice in the Antarctic and the sharp rebound in Arctic ice? You guessed it—the answer is…silence.
Rather, here are two examples of what we are fed (source: The News and Observer, Raleigh, NC):
1) NOAA: Arctic sea-ice melt linked to extreme summer weather
WASHINGTON — A growing body of evidence demonstrates a link between the melting of Arctic sea ice and worsening summer heat waves and other extreme weather in the United States and elsewhere in the world, leading scientists said Thursday.
2) …and from Seth Borenstein: “Mild 2013 cuts Arctic a break, warming woes remain”
WASHINGTON — The rapid melting in the Arctic eased up this year. But the government says global warming is still dramatically altering the top of the world, reducing the number of reindeer and shrinking snow and ice, while increasing certain fish and extending the growing season.
Our news media and government WILL NOT admit to the obvious—they were…wrong!
Sad. And infuriating!
