WMO – Record Cooling Is Record Warming

NASA’s just released data shows that Earth is cooling the fastest it has since at least 1880. Over the past four months, global temperatures have dropped more than half a degree C. The second fastest drop occurred 100 years ago in 1916.



The WMO describes this record cooling as record warming.

The earth is on track for its hottest year on record and warming at a faster rate than expected, the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) said on Thursday.

“What we’ve seen so far for the first six months of 2016 is really quite alarming,” David Carlson, director of the WMO’s Climate Research Program, told a news briefing.  “This year suggests that the planet can warm up faster than we expected in a much shorter time… We don’t have as much time as we thought.”

Earth on track for hottest year ever as warming speeds up

    I’m just shaking my head. Thank you for your constant vigilance in calling this out.

    I suppose it is hard for them to keep their lies straight and self consistent. How is it at all possible to have the hottest month ever, month after month, when at the same time reporting fastest four month global temperature drop on record? It just isn’t possible in reality.

    And then it is funny how satellites and weather balloons (which agree with each other) don’t happen to show the same warming as is being claimed for global surface temperatures.

    I swear they have all these guys on some endless loop…

    The super El Niño represented a massive radiation of stored heat out to space.

    Why so many people fail to comprehend this (including, it seems, quite a few climate scientists), I have no idea.

      And from reports from Vlad, it made the northern Russian winter just a bit more tolerable. He said he used about half the amount of heating wood than usual. Still rather cold up there though, even at the height of the “spike” in Jan/Feb.

      An even a large anomaly from a “normal” of -20ºC is still below freezing !temperature

    On this link: http://www.giss.nasa.gov/research/news/20160719/

    There is a graph where NASA says that global temps have broken records in the first 6 months of 2016. Doesn’t show the reduction in graph you highlight. I’m not suggesting that I’m surprised. I imagine that maybe they would say that a “cooling” from record high temps also could still leave temps at record highs because it was SO warm that any cooling would still keep the global average temp at record levels. If that makes any sense. Not saying that I agree.

      It’s most likely the difference between using data and using something that isn’t data, but rather the product of analysis that adjusts data and includes estimates.

      The first link is clearly using adjusted & estimated values for temperatures.

      The adjustments are so large and arbitrary that combined with presentation they can say anything they want to. What’s worse is that the public at large thinks they are looking at data being presented when they aren’t.

    NO…. just an El Nino spike causing a pleasant positive temperature anomaly in the winter in the upper NH… followed by a VERY sharp drop off.

    The alarm will be if the drop-off continues for the next few months.

    NO-ONE suffered in the least from that warmer spike… only beneficial.

    Many will suffer if the drop-off continues.

    All the current warming(midwest heat dome) is near surface. Does anybody report on changes in the altitudinal gradient? Colder temps at high altitude are what gives rise to more extreme storms, large hail, etc., and almost always gets claimed as proof of warming. We had a quick high altitude front breeze through last evening almost straight out of the North.
    Didn’t really cool things down, just added to the humidity, and a nice lightning show! Another week or so, and we should be past the hottest days of Summer.

      Andrew; does nobody get this?? All the emphasis is put on a two dimensional temp. reconstruction when the actual temp. is three dimensional. As a free flight pilot it can be 80 degrees on the ground and near freezing at altitude. High laps rates and extremely dynamic lower atmosphere. I think one of the prerequisites for being a climatologist would be to be a free flight pilot. Amazing the things you learn in a hurry about the immediate convection events which are often less then 100 feet in diameter had how these events are all linked to cloud formation and other convection events around you. alf

  8. Steve Fraser says:

    Looking at the data table, the time series of temps is reported as anomalies.
    Date. Anomaly
    2016.08……. 1.33
    2016.17…….. 1.29
    2016.25……. 1.09
    2016.33……. 0.93
    2016.42……. 0.79

    1.33 – .79 = .54. Decrease

    When GIS reports it 2016.5 numbers next month, if the anomaly is < .75, then the 4-month decrease will widen further, as the first month interval in the new series will start at 1.29, not at 1.33 as this one did. Since we have seen from Roy Spencer's June report that there was a good decrease then as well, IMO we will see see a 4-month decrease upwards of .65. I am estimating that the GISS anomaly for 2016.5 will be about .64.

    Anyone know what the baseline is for GISS anomalies?

  9. Richard Lee Stevens says:

    Your comparison to 1916 is very interesting. The winter of 1916-1917 was very cold in Europe. It was so cold that many of the steam engines on the Russian railroads brittle fractured. This led to the first Russian Revolution due to food shortages in the cities. Can we expect an unusually cold winter in Europe this year?
