Canada’s Missing Heat: Stations Across The Country Show More Cooling Than Warming

Global warming alarmists like claiming that a certain place is seeing more warming and climate change than everywhere else. Remarkably, they say that about almost everywhere, which of course makes no sense.

Today we look at Canadian temperature trends using the data from the Japan Meteorological Institute (JMA) for stations where they have data available going back to at least the mid 1990s.

First we look at December mean temperatures. What follows is a chart depicting the results of 9 stations across Canada:

Of the 9 examined stations, seven show no warming taking place at all in Canada over the past quarter century for the month of December. Data: JMA

The data hardly show the trends you’d expect from a place that is supposed to be “warming faster than anywhere else”.

Canada mean annual temperatures show no warming 

Okay, those are only data for December. How about the annual mean temperatures?

What follows are plots for the mean annual temperatures for the 9 stations:

Data source: JMA

The plots speak clearly enough: we have been seeing more cooling than warming.

Though the surface of the globe may be have warmed modestly as a whole, nothing unusual is going on. What we are likely seeing are mainly natural oceanic cycles at work, which we still know very little about.

    If you look at the national temperatures of all the major countries you will find they are all dropping. The only place that is warming is the places where there are no temperature measurements and we are using model temperatures instead.

    Sandspit is well named.

    Thanks.

    Are these stations representative of all Canada? Sorry, I’m not that good at Canadian geography. If they are a good spread, then this represents a big chunk of the planet’s landmass. Only Russia is larger than Canada. But of course, any hot weather in Geneva, home of the IPCC, will cancel out this / sarc.

      If you look at a globe instead of a typical Mercator projection map you’ll see that Russia and Canada aren’t that big really. But there data doesn’t like, no significant waking is occurring beyond the gradual rise that has been occurring for hundreds of years

      Kind of hard to be “representative” using only nine weather stations for such a vast country but it is at least covering both east and west coasts and gets pretty far north with Whitehorse. Big chunks of the country missing, e.g., prairie provinces, Northwest Territories, the far north, and the biggest province, Ontario. Environment Canada data show that the north is generally a bit warmer in winter months but that many areas show no trend. Certainly nothing that could be considered a “crisis.”

    The spatial distribution of the sites selected is perhaps not the best. Now, I admit that I am making some educated guesses here.

    3 are in BC, which is the west coast (Pacific)

    3 are in Quebec, with two in the far north and one central

    2 are in northern territories

    1 is in the northern Atlantic

    None are from more central sites like Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan or Alberta. I would say that most are influenced by coastal climates,

    Maybe someone thinks there many Canadian stations which have the data going back to 1990s.
    But only those 9 stations in Canada have temperature data from 1994 to 2019.

      Hello Kirye,

      I have a copy of the complete Canadian Climate database as published by Environment Canada in 2008. It contains daily and summary observations from over 5,000 stations, ranging from the later 1800’s to 2007. Different stations were active for different periods, some for the entire range, some for only a handful of years. Data sets vary between stations, but include some or all of: Daily maximum temperature (Celsius), daily minimum temperature (Celsius), daily rainfall (mm), daily snowfall (cm), total daily precipitation (mm) and snow pack depth (cm). The data is stored in a proprietary packed record format, and comes with basic instructions for reading and accessing it. I have been working on transforming it into an easily searchable MySQL database, with NO alteration or editing of the data values.

      Environment Canada currently makes data available on-line through a web search page, which includes the last decade since the original set was released in 2008 on CD. Rumour has it that the currently available data has been “homogenised” or “massaged” I haven’t had time to compare it to my data from 2008.

      I have generated a few spreadsheets to compare data from sets of stations in smaller geographical areas. For example, I have a spreadsheet that compares average daily high and low temperatures and precipitation for January, April, July and October for three stations in the Ottawa area, from 1939 to 2008.Two stations are within the city limits, and I included one rural station 80 km south of Ottawa for comparison. The results are.. interesting. I would be happy to share them with anyone who is interested.

    I understand that the Canadian government stopped using actual temperature readings and were now going to use the results the models gave as they were what was wanted, rather than reality. Tell me it is not true…….

    Kirye, if you familiarize with website weatherstats.ca you can find data for many places in Canada from way before 1994. As an example here are Calgary temps back to 1881. https://calgary.weatherstats.ca/charts/temperature-yearly.html

    Farmers in Canada will also tell you that, for three years running now, summers have been cooler and wetter. Getting crops off is getting harder and harder. Right now, there’s many crops sitting under snow.

    All of this comports with low sunspot activity and predictions that, starting around 2015, the world would enter a “little ice age.” How utterly ridiculous anthropogenic “global warming science” is….
