Locating The Missing Cold

The rocks may melt, and the sea may burn.

– Tom Petty

Less than a year ago, scientists located another canary in the coal mine. Warm sea surface temperatures west of Africa were “the most powerful evidence climate scientists have of global warming.”

Sea surface temperatures west of Africa have plummeted and now are more than 2C below normal.

Climate science is populated by ignorant hacks with no understanding of science, ethics or reality – which is why Democrats and the press love them so much.

    On a 1971 – 2000 base (low CO2 cold period) world SST anomaly is just + 0,1 ºC.


    Only the mediterranean and baltic waters look hot because they had calm summer weather which prevented the top layer to mix with the water just under the surface.

  2. Robertv says:

    What’s the use of knowing the surface temperature but neglecting the temperature at a dept of 20 meters. Just 2 days with calm sunny weather and up they go.

    Here is the latest SST contour map. I don’t need reminding about not going for a swim at the start of Winter. I will wait for Summer thanks. But when I was young, I used to surf without a wetsuit. It sucks getting old.

    • RAH says:

      That is the third map I’ve seen showing different patterns of the current SSTs. It is the warmest also.

      • John of Cloverdale, WA, Australia says:

        The global map shown by Tony is a temperature anomaly map. The orange map above it, by Shankman & Horn, is a temperature map of the North Atlantic, from last year. Although no index on the upper map, it supposedly shows temperatures above 78 F degrees (25.56C degrees).
        BTW, I live in Perth near the coast and the water is freezing.

    It seems most all the Atlantic hurricane forecasts have been adjusted downward recently based upon the colder tropical Atlantic. CFAN was one of the few that called out a lower range to start out with well before this SST anomaly was detected. What did Judith’s outfit see that the others didn’t?

  5. CO2isLife says:

    The warming oceans are proof CO2 isn’t causing the warming. CO2 and LWIR between 13 and 18 microns won’t warm the oceans. Warming oceans is evidence that more visible radiation is reaching the oceans. The oceans then warm the atmosphere above it, explaining the warming of the globe. CO2 has nothing to do with it.

    Tony, I did a follow-up to this post that you may enjoy.

    • garyh845 says:

      The 3 years of NASA surface temp anomaly graphic of the globe is quite intriguing, as I see 2015 as by far the warmest year and rather notable cooling into 2016 and 2017 – like a dagger right through the heart of el Nino.

    Sorry, wrong link. Here is the correct link.

  8. Fearless says:

    The scientist that I debate climate with, AGU member, Geologist, Paleontologist, Anthropologist and who worked with Leakey in Africa, says: “… the Atlantic surface water cooling, as unscientific skeptics probably don’t realize, is due to a flood of cold fresh water emerging from the Greenland Straits as the Arctic sea ice melts down. The fresh water, being lighter than salt water, is creating a temporary layer that interrupts the normal “conveyor belt” cycle driven by the Gulf Stream.”

    • tonyheller says:

      What total BS. Arctic temperatures are running below normal.

      • Fearless says:

        I will mention that in my reply to him and let you know his comeback. If you would like to access my email address which I’m sure you have, and send me yours, I can occasionally forward to you some of our interesting exchanges and I promise not to be a pest. Here’s his reply when discussing temperature records, which you recently had a post about: “Somebody is making shit up, all right. We have plenty of temperature records from land and sea before 1921, as well as long term observations of glacier and sea ice extent. And we can follow climate change in lake and ocean and glacier cores going back into geological time. Shame on you — first you decide it can’t be so, and then you make up woo-woo stories to explain your preconceptions.”

    • Gator says:

      Great reference my man! A bloke who knew Leakey! The science is settled, say no more! LOL

      • Fearless says:

        I’m as skeptical of the AGW scam as you probably are. I just mentioned that as part of his credentials because this man is no Hayhoe or McKenna, but a renowned Geologist/Paleontologist with many published papers who humors me with debating the climate scam.

    • Disillusioned says:

      Your bud’s scientific conclusion and the Hollywood movie “The Day After Tomorrow” have a lot in common.

    • richard verney says:

      At the moment (last year and this) Greenland is gaining mass.

    • AndyG55 says:

      “as the Arctic sea ice melts down.”

      TOTAL BS

      Arctic ice volume is at a 10 year + high.

      and is melting slower than every year since 2004.

      Your you and/or your science mass debater are very badly mis-informed.

      • Disillusioned says:

        It never ceases to amaze me that the most arrogant (those who can’t help but to throw around terms as “unscientific” and “denier”) who are usually the most misinformed. The preachers of dogma don’t have the time nor inclination to learn anything new.

        As an ex-believer in the CO2 scaremongering hysteria, it was my humility that allowed me to consider dissenting information, which eventually led to my disillusionment.

        Some people can never admit they are wrong (or admit that they’ve been had).

        • Fearless says:

          What brought me into the skeptical side of the debate was first, the surface station project showing how faulty the temperature stations were sited. Second was this website and the NASA/NOAA data tampering. I’ve been following this site for over eight years.

    • AndyG55 says:

      “who worked with Leakey in Africa”

      Someone had to do the digging.

    • ossqss says:

      Are you referencing the NAO inadvertently?
