Global land temperatures have dropped 1.2C since February, the largest drop in more than a century.
The Guardian calls record global cooling “incredibly fast heating” And they call fake news real news.
Fake news tries to blame human-caused global warming on El Niño | Dana Nuccitelli | Environment | The Guardian
Those supporting global warming have used the throwaway comment that the present level of temperature “rise” is unprecedented. Seems like a counter argument has just been dropped into the laps of skeptics.
Heat, the last climate refugee.
Man made heat is fleeing the surface and taking refuge in the depths of the oceans, where it will gather its numbers, and surface to lash out at poor brown people like a trillion Godzillas. Be very afraid, and vote democrat.
Where is the global warming? There isn’t anything significant according to that chart, either short term or long term. Time to defund the entire scam!
That chart is of rate of change in anomaly, not the anomaly.
The anomaly is trending up, at 1.08 C deg/century, from that start date.
What should be worrying to AGW alarmists, is that the rate of change is pretty constant over the entire record.
There is no obvious CO2 signature in that chart of Tony’s, especially after 1950.
Of course, the delta t is pretty small, 8 months. I will take a look at this using longer delta t, and see if the lack of acceleration holds.
Yes, as you increase delta, the acceleration increases. Still not very much/century.
There appears to be a break point, around 1985.
Trouble with CruTemp is that we really have no idea how much anything has been “adjusted ” over time.
The Hadley centre is certainly in the midst of the scam.
Take anything before about 1980 with a grain of salt like GISS (with GISS that applies to the whole record, with manic adjustments happening constantly)
So – “Global land temperatures have dropped 1.2C since February, the largest drop in more than a century.”
The question now is: What happens next, now that El Niño is kaput, a cold “blob” has taken over, the sun has gone quiet, etc, etc. Don’t get rid of your parkas?
You’ll get a trial period for testing out your parka in the coming few weeks. As it lingers through a very cold winter at your place, it will be nothing like what is on its way to the Midwest right now. All those protestors in North Dakota had best leave while they can.
Don’t worry…they’ll all be wearing their synthetic parkas made from oil products and leather boots and gloves from farting bovines.
RSS has “Cont USA” having a huge jump in anomaly over the last 3 months..
Does that seem “real”?
I have an idea that might be fun. How about contacting the obituaries section of the guardian with an obituary written about the death of truth in reporting. Surely someone here with wit and writing skill could do something funny, pithy and hurts-because-its-true in terms of an obit to send to them. The email address is email@example.com
I’ll volunteer to email them the best suggestion posted here if the author does not want to email them directly.
Or perhaps one for AGW.
I like the sentence where Nuccitelli dismisses the satellite data by saying the surface temperatures are more easy to measure accurately. Perhaps it would be helpful if Gavin could have a bit of a word with Nuccitelli and explain to him why the surface temperatures are then so warped by adjustments.
How long will it be before the lefty press and politicians are pressing for laws to “protect us” from “fake news”. Maybe I’m paranoid, but it feels like we are only a couple of steps before a Ministry of Truth has to approve all news and information.
The lefty press should be careful what they wish for. If they were to push for such, upon investigation, it might become clear that they are the biggest offenders and most in need of correction.
And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.
If you are in the US, the Trump express hasn’t even started down the tracks yet and its causing waves around the world. Wait until the train starts rolling. I wouldn’t worry about a Ministry of Truth cranking up anytime soon,
No doubt we have been granted a four year (at least) reprieve. 1/20/17 can’t get here soon enough.
The bill has ALREADY passed Congress here in the USA.It will be voted on in the Senate THIS WEEK
By targeting Russia they cut out the blog sites and places like Breitbart while leaving the MSM in tact.

That’s some scary sh** .
How very ‘soviet’ of them!
One of the Guardian clowns has just accused me of being unable to ID a trend. ‘It’s only a 4 letter word, just about your skill set’, he opined. T R E N D. Gotta laugh at that stupidity. :-)
Maybe he meant “sh-t”, but I guess like any progressive operating system these days, he got to 80% complete then crashed.
Lets hope Trump doesn’t fall for it. His daughter has no business trying to influence the president elect.
LARGE grain of salt needed. NYT is owned by Carlos Slim, a Mexican businessman and the world’s second richest person.
The NYT has been printing lies since Walter Duranty.
Also Trump is talking to a lot of people so he can pick their brains and mend the fences the Progressives and Obummer have managed to smash. Reuniting this very divided country is his first job and you can see he is treading a fine line if you pay attention.
I have a basic question. There is average temperature, and a deviation from average, and this drop from being +1.975 above average to +.808 above average is the largest in over a century, is this the correct way to read it?
Its not average temperature. Its the anomaly from the average temperature. As you said, the deviation.
The temperature drop is in the largest on record. Still above average warmth, but the drop indicates most of the previous warmth was el Nino.
If the Guardian was printed on paper…I wouldn’t wipe my arse on it.
Just don’t get too drunk while reading it online.. ;)

so after eyeballing the raw data, i was confused by the results, so i decided to suck everything into python and give it a whirl.
there are 1330 data points. you chose 8 month segments for whatever reason. this is important because 1330 is not divisible by 8. your last datapoint, the one on which your argument hinges, only has two months of data in it, where the rest have 8. it is not surprising that it is low by about a factor of four, give or take.
in fact when you correct for this mistake, the plot comes back into shape.
attached is a plot using the same data, with 7, 10, 14, and 19 month binning (all numbers that divide evenly into 1330).
i also made plots using tony’s method and one with a rough adjustment for the fact that the last datapoint only has one quarter of the data contained by any other point (8 months of data summed, vs. 2 months of data summed)
using tony’s method:
the last delta of 1.2 is obvious using this method.
using a rough correction factor (multiplying the last bin that only contains 2 months of data by four, so that it contains roughly 8 months worth of data) you get the following:
the delta is reduced drastically.
to be very, very clear, this plot is not accurate. it is a rough correction to show that the reason that the point was so low was because there were six missing months of data. the only way to get that last datapoint is to wait six more months, so that the last datapoint has the same amount of temperature data as the rest of them.
