It’s been a particularly mild winter in Europe this year. But that hasn’t changed the long-term trend over the past 30 years.
Now that the February 2020 data have been coming in, we plot the mean February temperatures for some countries in Europe.
Three of 5 stations show February mean temperature in Greta Thunberg’s Sweden have had a cooling trend since 1988! The real data will probably make the climate alarmists upset.
Data source: JMA.
Twelve of 14 stations in UK show February mean temperatures have had a cooling or no warming trend since 1992! (Note: those 14 stations have data dating back at least to 1980s):
As a whole this northern European country has seen very little warming over the past 3 decades for the month of February:
Three of six stations in Finland show no warming since the 1980s. Data: JMA.
Ireland, situated in the North Atlantic, also shows no warming for the month of February since 1987:
Four of 6 stations with data going back to the 1980s show no February warming. Data source: JMA
The story is the same in the Netherlands for the month of February. All 5 of 5 stations there with data going back to at least 1995 show February temperatures having a cooling trend:
Mean February temperatures have been falling at stations in the Netherlands since 1995. Data source: JMA.
So it remains a mystery as to why global warming alarmists claim rapid warming is happening.
