UK Brexits Global Warming, Has Been Cooling Off Since Long Before Greta Was Born

Winters across the United Kingdom of Britain appear to have worsened over the past two decades, contradicting earlier warnings they would warm and snow would become rare. 

Due to its geographic location in the the northeast Atlantic, temperature trends in Great Britain have significance. They provide information about how the Atlantic acts on Europe’s climate, like a barometer.

February 2021 temperature data for the UK are available from the Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA), which means we can plot the latest DJF winter mean temperature data point.

UK February hasn’t warmed since 1992 

First we begin by plotting the latest February mean temperatures for the stations with sufficient JMA data:

Data: JMA

Most stations have seen February trending cooler, or almost flat. Believing that late winter has been warming in the UK is wishful thinking.

But February is only one month. What about winters in general? Global warming would suggest that winters in the UK  ought to be warming, with snow becoming increasingly rare and “a thing of the past”.

No warming since long before Greta was born

What follows are the mean DJF winter temperatures for the 14 stations plotted above, since 1998:

Data source: JMA

So our message to all the climate Chicken Littles out there: “The sky is not falling at all, and Britain is barely warming any more.

    Thanks Kirye for you fantastic detailed work

    It seems that the Catastrophic Climate Change proponents have run out of scientists. I don’t see much scientists today pushing that agenda. So, having been abandoned by many scientists, some even being outspoken about it, the cabal found a truant, undersized, vegan girl who has never seen any happiness during her life, abusing of her conditions to scare the world’s children into submission.

    The Earth is in cooling mode.

    The message was the Britain would have a warmer climate, rather like that of southern Spain. Mysteriously, this failed to terrify the British*. It now seems that they followed their usual pattern of refusing to believe official announcements, and they turned out to be right.

    *(Admittedly, the British are hard to terrify. Various kings, emperors, and dictators have tried over the years, but only Margaret Thatcher succeeded.)

      “this failed to terrify the British” It disappointed me, wouldn’t have minded a Mediterranean type climate.

    Of course the UK is kept warm by the Gulfstream Many scientists have predicted as the Arctic warms and releases more ice into the Transpolar current that the Gulfstream will slow and the UK will cool
    The UK is as far north as Labrador Canada
    Do you agree with that ?
