It's Official 2014 winter is coldest EVER!


Recommended Posts

Central Mass. 3/4/2014. 1:13 PM EST. 19 degrees and going down. 12 degrees tonight. Bush caused it. Global warming climate change. The climate is changing here. It is getting colder. Al Bore was spot on. I thought i would have beachfront property after Cape Cod was under water. I wanted to set up a clam shack. Kerry had to take his mind off global warming for a few days because of Putin. He was blowing a lot of hot air and C02.

12 degress is warm. I've been in single digits for most of the week and at least 30 times this year. Southern NH.

My Kingdom for some global warming.

Are all of you deniers really so clueless, misinformed and/or stupid that you can't understand the basic differences between the local 'weather' patterns at the moment where you are standing, and the global patterns of higher and lower temperatures, precipitation, ice melt, floods and droughts, etc., averaged over many decades, which is called 'climate'?

 

The Earth is warming up and the previously fairly stable climate patterns that the human race has enjoyed over most of the Holocene are changing as a result of that warming. That doesn't mean that it won't ever get cold again in the winter time. It means that the planet as a whole is getting generally warmer, not that every place on Earth will warm up at an equal rate.

 

More places, globally, were unusually warm this last year than places that were unusually cold. Which is why, even though it may be cold wherever you are, 2013 ended up being the 4th warmest year on record globally. November 2013 was the hottest November on record globally. Right now while you're "freezing", there are a lot of people in Australia trying to cope with temperatures as high as 122 degrees F and raging bushfires.

 

2013 was hottest year on record in Australia, Bureau of Meteorology says

ABC News

Fri 3 Jan 2014

Australia has just sweltered through its hottest year on record, according to the Bureau of Meteorology.

 

Average temperatures were 1.20 degrees Celsius above the long-term average of 21.8C, breaking the previous record set in 2005 by 0.17C, the bureau said in its Annual Climate Statement.

 

All states and territories recorded above average temperatures in 2013, with Western Australia, Northern Territory and South Australia all breaking annual average temperature records.

 

And every month of 2013 had national average temperatures at least 0.5C above normal, according to the statement.

 

The country recorded its hottest day on January 7 - a month which also saw the hottest week and hottest month since records began in 1910.

 

A new record was set for the number of consecutive days the national average temperature exceeded 39C [102.2F] seven days between January 2 and 8, 2013, almost doubling the previous record of four consecutive days in 1973.

 

The highest temperature recorded during 2013 was 49.6C [121.28F] at Moomba in South Australia on January 12, which was the highest temperature in Australia since 1998.

 

Further, with mean temperatures across Australia generally well above average since September 2012, long periods of warmer-than-average days have been common, with a distinct lack of cold weather, the statement says.

 

Nights have also been warmer than average, but less so than days.

 

The country has experienced just one cooler-than-average year in the last decade - 2011.

 

Australian temperatures have warmed approximately 1C since 1950, consistent with global climate trends.

 

Globally, each of the past 13 years since 2001 have ranked among the 14 warmest on record.

 

The bureau's Neil Plummer told News 24 that as a predictor of climate in Australia, the statistics "speak for themselves", and that a "consistent body of evidence" gathered globally pointed to a "warming trend".

 

"All Australian records go back to 1910. The trend over that period is a little short of a degree warming over that period, where most of the warming has occurred since around about 1950, and that's consistent with the global pattern," he said.h

 

"It's not just us at the bureau doing the number crunching, it is all the bureaus around the world, and it is that body of evidence that we're all seeing a warming over Australia and a warming world."

 

According to the weather bureau's statement, significant climate events of 2013 included:

 

* The January heatwave, which saw a number of severe bushfires in south eastern Tasmania and in Victoria, where bushfires were particularly widespread.

 

* An early start to the fire season saw major bushfires in the Blue Mountains during October, the most destructive in the region since 1968.

 

* Ex-tropical cyclone Oswald, which caused heavy rain and flooding along the east coast in late January, with many coastal areas from Sydney to Cape York receiving more than 200mm of rainfall in 24 hours, and Upper Springbrook in the Gold Coast hinterland receiving 1496mm in eight days.

 

* Tropical cyclone Rusty was the most intense tropical cyclone to make landfall in 2013, causing flooding in the Pilbara and Western Kimberley in late February.

 

* Tropical cyclone Alessia crossed the coast near Darwin in late November, the earliest tropical cyclone to make landfall in the Northern Territory in 40 years.

 

The statement concurred with a report released by the United Nations' climate panel in September, saying that recent warming trends had been "dominated by the influence of increasing greenhouse gases and the enhanced greenhouse effect".

 

According to the landmark Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Fifth Assessment Report, scientists are 95 per cent sure that humans are responsible for global warming.

 

The report, the result of almost seven years' work by more than 600 scientists and researchers, says the concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere has risen by 40 per cent since the pre-industrial era.

 

It presents a number of different scenarios of how climate change may unfold over the next century, but says the majority of climate models point to a mean temperature rise of around 2C.

 

University of New South Wales climate expert Dr Sarah Perkins says last year shows the effects of global warming are taking hold.

 

"It's here and now. We're actually starting to feel the effects, and even though the global temperature hasn't risen more than a degree at the moment, that's already had impacts on extreme temperatures and that's consistent with what we've been seeing for quite a while," she said.

 

Dr Perkins says record temperatures without the climatic influence of an El Nino makes 2013 especially significant.

 

"Usually when we have warmer than average temperatures and lower than average rainfall, that's associated with an El Nino summer," she said.

 

"When we have La Nina summers, we have higher than average rainfall and lower than average temperatures."

 

"However, the past two summers have been neutral years, so they should have be effectively average rainfall and average temperature."

 

"So that's what we're a little bit worried about - that we're seeing all these records breaking when we're not really in a pattern of climate that influences those sorts of extremes."

 

"Australia has always been a country of extremes; we're no strangers to tropical cyclones or heatwaves or anything of the like, but it's the time they're occurring, particularly the start of the bushfire season this year. It was the earliest on record. That's what we're worried about."

 

Earth's oceans also heating up

 

According to the bureau, the planet's oceans are also getting warmer, with sea surface temperatures over the past 10 years the warmest on record.

 

Mr Plummer said the waters around Australia were no exception.

 

"In fact the waters to the south of Australia were the warmest on record, too, so it's that consistent body of evidence, particularly since the 1950s, where we've seen quite a strong warming," he said.

 

In 2013, sea surface temperatures around Australia were "unusually warm throughout the year", according to the bureau statement, with the temperatures for January and February among the highest on record.

 

Surface temperatures off the western and southern coast of Australia from summer 201213 until May were "consistently very much above average," the bureau says.

 

Global temperatures on the rise

 

In an analysis of the BoM Annual Climate Statement written for the The Conversation website, bureau experts said that 2013 was the 6th hottest year on record globally, while 13 of the 14 hottest years on record have occurred since 2001.

 

As of the end of November, global temperatures were 0.49C above average, the authors said, adding that other parts of the world to experience their warmest year on record in 2013 included the tropical North Pacific region around and east of the Philippines, along with parts of central Asia.

 

Exceptionally warm sea temperatures in the western North Pacific had "contributed to a very active tropical cyclone season in the region, especially in October and November", they wrote.

 

"In those months there were seven super typhoons (the equivalent of a category 4 or 5 tropical cyclone in Australia) in as many weeks," they wrote, adding that the most significant of these was Typhoon Haiyan, which they described as one of the most intense tropical cyclones ever to make landfall.

 

Heat defines first days of 2014 as Australia swelters

 

Extreme conditions have persisted into the first days of 2014, with soaring temperatures in areas extending from Queensland's interior to Central Australia, northern South Australia and north-western New South Wales.

 

On Thursday, temperature records tumbled in central, western and north-west Queensland, with the mercury topping 40C in a number of areas.

 

Friday saw another searing day for parts of central and western Queensland, with St George reaching 47.2C.

 

Northerly winds will push the heat towards the state's south-east over the next few days. Brisbane is expected to reach a high of close to 40C on Saturday.

 

South Australia's far north also sweltered through near-record temperatures on Thursday, as ex-tropical cyclone Christine tracked across the state, bringing high winds.

 

John Nairn from the weather bureau says several outback towns had temperatures well into the 40s.

 

"Our temperatures have been near record, the highest temperature we had was at Moomba at 49.3 [120.74F] degrees but a lot of centres up there are pushing up around that 50 mark," he said.

It is funny how humans on the internet in there instantaneous world can't detect global warming changes

 

Hopefully the heat won't kill people in Chicago this summer...

 

 

At one point in earths history the entire surface was ice.. as I understand it

People will die, ecosystems will be lost, there is no way around that

 

Dinosaurs ruled the earth for 200 million years, humans wont last nearly as long according to the entire scientific community

Yeah, but we'll be long gone by then. Keep a stiff upper lip, though...wouldn't you rather climate be more tropical than a frigid ice box??

 

Me too...

In 1978 which was a warmer winter than this year the climate change prophets were freaking out about Global cooling.

 

Care to explain that Pogo?

4o yrs from now is long gone?

 

dont think so

 

the Koch Bros do NOT need YOUR Money

Do you have any idea how much of a sheep you are being?

 

Do you ever have an original thought?

And vice versa.

 

The earth has been a block of ice when CO2 levels were 100 times higher.

 

The earth was hotter than today when CO2 was much lower.

 

CO2 is not a cause of global warming. All the evidence is there if you stop being a parrot and start investigating.

 

Start with an open mind.

Beating out 1977-78 when all the chicken littles were crying "Global Cooling"

JELLY FISH instead of shell fish is the really BIG concern of too much CO2 in our atmosphere & oceans.

This is something DELIBERATELY IGNORED by the IDIOTS@FIXEDnewsCORP&theirDITTOheads.

Oh, that's easy to explain, MassStupidity. You are an ignorant brainwashed retard, severely afflicted by the Dunning-Kruger Effect, and you lie though your teeth at every opportunity. Your moronic claims are complete nonsense. Look at the temperatures in 1978 and try to explain to us how they represent "a warmer winter than this year". You appear to be just too stupid to comprehend what 'global' actually means.

Global temperature (annual values) in the data from NASA GISS (orange) and from Cowtan & Way (blue), i.e. HadCRUT4 with interpolated data gaps.

 

One can clearly see the extreme year 1998, which (thanks to the record-El Niño) stands out above the long-term trend like no other year. But even taking this outlier year as starting point, the linear trend 1998-2013 in all four data sets is positive. Also clearly visible is 2010 as the warmest year since records began, and the minima in the years 2008 and 2011/2012. But just like the peaks are getting higher, these minima are less and less deep.

We could sure use some global warming in these parts it's been a long cold winter here, we've had more than our share of snow and ice. It starting dropping ice here again sunday night and monday around 2 P.M. the roof on my warehouse caved in, thank goodness no one was there. I rode around in the truck today and found three other businesses the same thing happened to.

Nothing but a lie. There is not one shred of evidence man has cause any global warming ...none!

Still trying to beat that dead horse, eh mildewed? LOLOL.

 

In reality, there are mountains of evidence supporting the Theory of Anthropogenic Global Warming. So much evidence that it has convinced virtually the entire world scientific community.

 

You just can't see it, mildewed, because you manage to keep your head jammed so far up your ass that you need a glass belly-button to see where you're walking.

You lied again. It was the third coldest winter in the US. Not in the rest of the world.

 

Third Coldest Winter On Record So Far In The US | Real ...
https://stevengoddard.wordpress.com/.../third-coldest-winter-on-record-s...‎

Feb 16, 2014 - If February ended today, this would be the third coldest winter on record in the US, after 1979 and 1899.

 

The snow was melting at the olympics you liar.

 

This winter was also the warmest for many parts of the US.

 

Meanwhile, it was the opposite story in the West -- especially the Desert Southwest -- where typically mild winters were even warmer than usual.

 

Both Las Vegas and Tucson reported their warmest meteorological winter on record -- Las Vegas going back to 1937 and Tucson records going back to 1895.

 

For Las Vegas, the average temperature (factoring in high and low) was 52.3 degrees, breaking the old record of 52.0. For Tucson,

 

For Tucson, it was an average 56.9 degrees, breaking the old record of 56.6.

 

Some other Tucson notes, from their local office of the National Weather Service:

 

* 6 consecutive days with highs 80 degrees or warmer -- second longest on record.

* It hit 88 on Feb. 15th -- their 9th warmest February day on record.

* It only dropped below freezing on two dates -- tying for fewest amount in winter.

* The airport went 44 consecutive days without rain -- 16th longest winter streak.

Again looked at all these wonderous graphs and photos as we basked in -0 temps that were breaking records and thought "golly it's hot!"

It's really a shame that you're too stupid to understand the difference between long term global climate patterns and the temporary weather in your backyard. Have you already forgotten that 2012 was the hottest year on record in the contiguous United States, in records going back to 1850, with average temperatures for the year a full degree hotter than the previous record hot year in 1998?

On a national scale, it barely breaks into the top twenty coldest winters.

Meanwhile, on the other side of the planet, Siberia is experiencing a record-breaking warm winter. Global warming is a real phenomenon, despite the crybaby denialists in the right wingnut lunatic fringe.
