Japan Sea Surface Temperatures, Typhoons Show Japanese Media Living In A Climate Fantasy

By Kirye

In Japan, like many other places around the world, the media like to tell audiences how sea surface temperatures around Japan are rising due to man-made global warming.

But, as is often the case, the data and facts tell the opposite story.

What follows is a chart depicting sea surface temperatures around Japan.

Data source: JMA.

As we can plainly see above, the sea surfce temperatures around Japan rapidly cooled since the start of the new century, before spiking briefly around 2016. The overall trend for the past 21 years has been steady.

Japanese media also like claiming that the number of typhoons is on the rise as well. But here too the data from the JMA show how the opposite is the reality.

Data source: JMA.

The number of typhoons has been trending down modestly for many decades, even though atmospheric CO2 concentrations have increased.

So the next time you hear some doomsday climate claim from the media, you’ll be well informed in most cases if you simply assume the opposite to be true!

Especially when it ocmes to climate trends and predictions. the media just cannot be trusted. Often they are living in a fantasy world.

    What we see is that the SST anomaly around Japan correlates strongly with El Nino, and spikes upward with large El Nino’s like 1998 and 2015-2016. But very interesting that the overall trend is slightly down, but basically pretty flat.

    Speaking of tornadoes.

    What if a tornado was headed your way, and you couldn’t see it coming because wind turbines were interfering with doppler radar?

    Just when you think “green” schemes couldn’t get any more stupid…

    The Teenage Super Sleuths have just completed a video that uses NASA Ground Measurements to prove that CO2 has had no impact on temperatures since 1902. The experiment is very simple. You simply identify stations that existed on or before 1902 and have a BI of 10 or less. That is a control for the urban heat island effect. If you control for the urban heat island effect, you will find that CO2 has had 0.00% impact on temperatures. Michael Mann’s hockey stick shows 1.1 to 1.2 degree increase over that time period. You will find no instrumental data sets that show that kind of warming if you control for the urban heat island effect. Don’t take my word for it, simply replicate the experiment outlined in the video.

      Here’s some friendly fire:

      I don’t like the format of the video series in that the teenagers seem reduced to saying little more than “yes” or “no” or “that is right”, while the over exited adult pretends – clumsily and unsuccessfully (to me) – to be learning the most fascinating new insights from the kids.

      It smacks of an adult channelling/patronising the kids.

      I hasten to add, I am not suggesting that this is actually the case, at least not in an objectionable form.

      Still, I feel, kids bright and confident enough to communicate scientific arguments ought to be able to present their findings themselves, rather than relying on a chaperone that does all the talking for them.

      The marketing format gets in the way of the message, Greta casting her shadow over it.

      In this complicated and often confused debate about global warming, the qualities I value most are intelligibility, lucidity and consistency, regardless of who brings the message across.

    Of course, if it is cooling off and calminng down around Japan, it is likely warming up elsewhere and there are always storms to be reported. For example, take Canada where activists are pushing for declaring an emergency over warming since the 1950s. The hype in Canada is to support re-electing virtue-signalling Trudeau (often now referred to as “Mr. Dressup” due to his costume fetish).

    Ross McKitrick pointed out that the global average temperature is driven by the ocean, and thus land temperatures will always exceed the global average, as much as twice or more. He also noted that Canada has already warmed by 1.7C, exceeding the dreaded 1.5C threshold. Not only were there no extinctions, it has been a time of flourishing and prosperity. If this be catastrophe, let us have more.
