Field Of Climate Dreams

Build it and they will come.

In response to my graphs showing how the US has cooled over the last century, reader Jeff has been pointing out that it was cooler from 1871 to 1918.

No surprise there. In 1989, NOAA’s Tom Karl said most global warming occurred before 1919, and that Earth cooled from 1921 to 1979. Which is exactly what my graphs show.

A huge amount of warming was reported from 1918 to 1923.

Is the North Pole going to melt entirely? Are the Arctic regions warm- ing up, with the prospect of a great climatic change in that part of the world? Science is asking these questions.

Reports from fishermen, seal hunters, and explorers who sail the seas around Spitsbergen and the eastern Arctic all point to a radical change in climatic conditions, with hitherto unheard-of high temperatures on that part of the earth’s surface. Observations to that effect have covered the last five years during which the warmth has been steadily increasing.

07 Apr 1923 – NORTH POLE MELTING. – Trove

In 1974, NCAR showed that this warming continued until 1945, followed by sharp cooling until the 1970’s.

Good to see that we all agree, but not so good to see how Jeff is trying to mislead people by cherry-picking cold weather in the 19th century.

    Lets see some stats from Alaska over the last decade

      Why not North Russia?

      • Scott Koontz says:

        Sure, Northern Russia as well. Anyone who can read a chart or look at a video knows that Russia, especially the north, is experiencing an incredible warming.

        Click the link above (it should take you to another web page.) Then look on the bottom for the link to Global Temperature (second from left.) Play the short clip on the right by clicking he small triangle on the bottom left.

        Now watch what happens to Northern Russia, especially near the end.

        Let us know what conclusion you came to. It it matches what intelligent people noticed, then congratulations!

        • AndyG55 says:

          You fall for propaganda animations and manufactured GISS data.

          No wonder you are so blindly ignorant

          Russia warming rapidly.. ROFLMAO

        • AndyG55 says:

          Great to see that HIGHLY BENEFICAL natural warming out of the ANOMALOUSLY COLD LIA though, isn’t it koon.

          Move to Russia if you think its warm.

        • Grifters Handbook: If the mark notices you are lying, change the subject! Point to some vaguely unverifiable assertions in a foreign jurisdiction in a language alien to the subject at hand. Harrumpf loudly that THERE is the unvarnished truth and presto! The offending thermometer readings are overridden by reality control and doublethink, the emperor appears clad and the infidel disbelievers in coercive collectivism slink away in shame. Q.E.D.

          I thought Scotty was against cherries. Don’t tell me he has been lying again!

          Jeff must be so confused…

        Why are the Left still running around with their hair on fire? AGW now stands for Al Gore’s Wrong!!!

    • arn says:

      So you moved from the arctic to alaska?

      I’ll give you a hint about statistics there:
      Just research some about polar bear population over the last decade.
      You know ,those animals that were supposed to go extinct:)
      Start the year the always the fearmongering
      has started by using the same ice age fearporn rhetorics
      “the potential consequences are scary as hell”
      (it’s the first sentence of the first article of this topic and it’s from 1989).

    • David Reich says:

      If CO2 is the primary control knob of climate then why do some regions of the arctic have 13 foot thick ice today that had only 5 foot thick ice a year ago, 10 years ago and even 15 years ago and why do some regions that had 13 foot thick ice last year, 10 years ago and 15 years ago have only 5 feet today? Could it be that something besides CO2 is at play?

    • Trevor Marr says:

      What are they REALLY trying to Control?

  2. Scott Koontz says:

    I was wondering that the trend was for one station within three months for max temperature.

    Did you know that if you took all stations you would see a warming trend? It’s true! It’s what the adults call science.

    “In response to my graphs showing how the US has cooled over the last century, reader Jeff has been pointing out that it was cooler from 1871 to 1918.”

    I see. This one station IS the US. It represents the US. Whatever happens to this one stations is what is happening to the US, and I guess the entire globe.

  3. Jb says:

    Isn’t the thing Jeff points what you advise readers to watch out for in the arctic ice extent averages from noaa from 1979-present?
    I am glad it doesn’t change your 1918-2018 results though.

    Russia did it. Who knew.

  5. See? Soviet propagandists tried since 1960 to use climate hobgoblins to frighten These States into surrendering into the Soviet Socialist Republics while fattening off of economic distortions caused by prohibition laws. That source was cut off with some rough handling and Altruria collapsed, but left behind meme pollution infecting the Dem party–which still views power plants the way prohibitionists view meth labs. But the real lesson here is that ex-scientists believe what they are paid to believe, and these remoras are so thick about the maw of the looter state that an honest appointee is required to pretend to believe thermometers are lying to pass the confirmation gauntlet.
