New Study Finds East And West Antarctica Have Profoundly Cooled By -2.8°C And -1.68°C Since 1979

New Study Finds East And West Antarctica Have Profoundly Cooled By -2.8°C And -1.68°C Since 1979

Share this…FacebookTwitterFrom 1979-2018 East Antarctica cooled -0.70°C/decade (-2.8°C), West Antarctica cooled -0.42°C/decade (-1.68°C), but the Antarctic Peninsula warmed 0.18°C/decade (0.72°C). Thus, as a whole, the Antarctic continent has cooled by about -1.5°C to -2°C during the same period CO2 rose from 337 to 410 ppm. Zhu et al., 2021 “The temperature trend from ERA5 is […]

Share this…FacebookTwitterSince the last day of 2001 CO2 has risen from 372 to 419 ppm. However, there have been two cooling periods of 12 years (2002-2014) and 7.5 years (2014-2021), separated by a 1.5-year El Niño-induced warming event (2015-2016). Temperature changes that proceed in step- or event-like fashion do not seem to correlate well with […]

New Study: A 'Profound' ~1°C Cooling Trend Across East Antarctica Since 1979 Is 'Likely To Accelerate'

New Study: A ‘Profound’ ~1°C Cooling Trend Across East Antarctica Since 1979 Is ‘Likely To Accelerate’

Share this…FacebookTwitterExcept for a few pockets of warming along the West Antarctic coast, surface air temperatures have cooled profoundly across East Antarctica – most of the continent, as well as the surrounding Southern Ocean – in the last 40 years (1979-2018). About 30% of the cooling can be explained by Madden-Julian Oscillation forcing. Atmospheric CO2 […]

Share this…FacebookTwitterThere has been no net warming in the Rocky Mountains in the last 500 years. The southern Rocky Mountains were as warm or warmer than recent decades during the 1600s and 1700s and they have been cooling since the 1950s (Berkelhammer and Stott, 2012, Heeter et al., 2020).

Share this…FacebookTwitterNot long ago, Dr. Roy Spencer posted the latest satellite Lower Troposphere Temperature as measured by satellite. Over the most recent years we have seen global temperatures drop. And we also see signs cooling is putting the brakes on global ice melt and temperature rises, which, by the way, many scientists have linked to […]

Sea Levels Surrounding Sweden Have Fallen 2 Meters Since 1731

Sea Levels Surrounding Sweden Have Fallen 2 Meters Since 1731

Share this...

Share this…FacebookTwitterDue primarily to land uplift, markings on “seal rocks” show dramatic declines in relative sea level along Sweden’s coasts in the last 290 years. The explanation for falling sea levels throughout much of Northern Europe is that the land in this region of the world is rising faster than eustatic sea levels are. Written […]

Share this…FacebookTwitterScientists have calculated the years of life lost (YLL) attributed to exposure to “non-optimum” temperatures.  It turns out that during the 2000s – supposedly the warmest years on record – people were still far more likely to die from exposure to cold temperatures than warm temperatures. The country with the largest human population has […]
