A New Concept For Climate Scientists : Conservation

During times when cold air is dipping very far south and bringing snow to the Sahara Desert, portions of the Arctic will necessarily be warmer than “normal.” The cold air in the Arctic is necessarily being replaced by warmer air from the south, and vice versa.

These are fundamental principles of conservation of mass and energy, which scientists have understood for a very long time. It has nothing to do with carbon dioxide or “global warming.”

Cherry picking one spot in the Arctic is not science.

    Wow, we are gonna die, over a sliver of the Arctic being temporarily warmer than usual!

    Meanwhile IGNORE the blue to deep Pink colors,as they are a figment of the imagination.

    The fundamental principles of conservation were abandoned by Alarmists and Luke warmers a long long time ago in a galaxy far far away…

    If humans are making the world warmer (and only by a few degrees globally) it is unbelievable that people are arguing for a cold miserable heavily taxed existence.

    D’ooooh!! ;)

    As you know I’m keen on the polar regions, keen on scientists, and sometimes have a bone to pick with Tony or two on points raised on this blog. I do appreciate his contuing blogging on the matter, allowing me to disagree and his long time spent looking at these regions for the last few years.

    I do heartily agree with this post. Short scale air mass movements should not be painted with any AGW brush. On the other hand short term changes that might indicate non AGW should also be cast aside.

    The polar regions are a non-trivial problem.

    It’s worth watching though, better than watching (white) paint dry …..

      Just remember CLIMATE is at an absolute minimum 60 years (one PDO/AMO cycle) and more likely 90 or 200 years.

      ….Feynman said that while ancient Nile and auroral records are generally “spotty,” that was not the case for the particular 850-year period they studied.

      “Since the time of the pharaohs, the water levels of the Nile were accurately measured, since they were critically important for agriculture and the preservation of temples in Egypt,” she said. “These records are highly accurate and were obtained directly, making them a rare and unique resource for climatologists to peer back in time.”

      A similarly accurate record exists for auroral activity during the same time period in northern Europe and the Far East. People there routinely and carefully observed and recorded auroral activity, because auroras were believed to portend future disasters, such as droughts and the deaths of kings…

      The researchers found some clear links between the sun’s activity and climate variations. The Nile water levels and aurora records had two somewhat regularly occurring variations in common – one with a period of about 88 years and the second with a period of about 200 years.

      The researchers said the findings have climate implications that extend far beyond the Nile River basin….

    I know this! The UK was faced with powerful winds from the West and tightly moving North. The remains of storm-something.
    I wondered if anyone would pick up on it.

    You do know that cold temps sufficient to bring snow are hardly rare in the Sahara?

    It just doesn’t snow because there’s no moisture to produce the appropriate precipitation…

    That snow has NOTHING to do with the Sahara being colder lately -it just means it had more atmospheric moisture (a result of more water in the atmosphere due to climate change perhaps?)
