New Studies: Europe Is No Warmer Today Than It Was During Medieval Times

Two new papers use tree ring proxy evidence to suggest modern European temperatures are neither unusual nor higher than they were during the Medieval Warm Period.

Esper et al. (2020) have produced a new temperature reconstruction for Southern Europe to complement past reconstructions for Northern and Central Europe.

They find “the warmest 30-year period since 730 CE occurred during high Medieval times (876–905 CE=+0.78 °C w.r.t. 1961–1990) and has been slightly warmer than the recent period from 1985–2014 (+0.71 °C)“.

The proxy evidence and instrumental record also show there has been no obvious net warming in Southern Europe since the 1940s.

Past reconstructions for Northern and Central Europe also show no unusual warming has occurred over the last century, with as-warm or warmer temperatures during the 1940s.

Ljungqvist et al., 2020  cite tree ring temperature studies from Scandinavia, Scotland, Continental Europe, and the Pyrenees that also show the 1930s and 1940s were as-warm or warmer than recent decades.

    Nothing but noise.

    Again there’s something going on in the 1930-1940s as Ljungquist shows.

    Is there global proxy data to show 1930-40s hump?

      Ah, the famous “40’s blip”!

    Read Esper’s abstract, Pierre: “These diferences between warm periods are statistically insignifcant though.”

    Where is that tree ring expert, Michael Mann, when you need him?

    No doubt he would be able to discern a pattern here?

      If he can’t discern one, he’d just manufacture one.

    The current warm period is no better or worse than when John Constable (https://www.theartstory.org/artist/constable-john/life-and-legacy/) or for most of the life, his father.
    His father as, a corn (grain) merchant (note in British parlance ‘corn’ usually refers to the seeds of plants, such as wheat, barley and oats, etc., that can be used to produce flour and not just American maize), made a lot of money from the very seasonable weather that occurred during his son John’s early life. That money help set-up John Constable as the artist he became.
    Of course such short periods of very agreeable clement weather is just that — weather, then as now.

    Uk Cooled right back to 1895 recently

    UK Met Office MANIPULATED all sun hours and temps data

    With obvious AGW bias

    Made some record years average

    Cooled the past more and disconnected the sun from temps more
