NASA : Record Cold Times Ahead

The Chill of Solar Minimum |

Snow cover is furthest south for the date in the NOAA record, covering much of New Mexico and Texas. I was wearing a jacket in Phoenix yesterday – the average temperature for November 12 is 78 degrees.

November 12 temperatures have been falling at Red River, New Mexico for over a century, and yesterday’s maximum of 18 degrees was the coldest on record.

Across the Northern Hemisphere, autumn snow extent has been increasing for at least 50 years, indicating that cold Arctic air is intruding further south.

  1. It makes sense to me
    that solar energy variations
    have more of an effect
    on Earth’s climate
    than man made CO2.

    But …
    the connection between the sun,
    and the average global temperature
    has been so inconsistent,
    based on the limited data we have,
    its possible we’re not measuring
    the solar attributes that really matter,

    There is no observed 11 year
    average temperature cycle
    to match the 11 year
    average sunspot cycle.

    The Maunder Minimum
    in the late 1600s
    did coincide with
    below average temperatures,
    and some famines in Europe,
    but three other solar minimums
    in the Little Ice Age period
    did not.

    I know sunspot counts
    are not the same
    as modern
    satellite measurements
    of TSI (total solar energy),
    and temperature measurements
    in England are not
    a global average temperature
    … so we do have limited data
    for the Little Ice Age period.

    The limited data show
    not one of the four Little Ice Age
    solar minimums
    ( very low sunspot
    counts, used as a proxy
    for low solar energy )
    had the ideal temperature trend
    one would expect if small solar
    energy variations were important to
    the average temperature of our planet.

    The ideal “signature”
    would be that
    the solar minimum years
    were colder than average,
    and also got colder
    as the minimum continued.

    The Wolf Minimum
    was not unusually cold,
    but the temperature
    did have the
    expected downtrend.

    It was unusually cold
    a few decades BEFORE
    the Sporer Minimum began,
    perhaps the coldest period during
    the Little Ice Age.

    Then it was cold again when the
    Sporer Minimum began,
    but got warmer
    during that minimum,
    which makes no sense.

    The Maunder Minimum
    was generally cold,
    but the got warmer
    during the minimum,
    which makes no sense.

    The short Dalton Minimum
    was not cold,
    and the temperature
    was warmer at the end,
    not colder.

    This all adds up to no obvious
    correlations between the four
    Little Ice Age Minimums and
    England temperatures.

    And also no obvious correlation
    of the “11 year” sunspot cycle
    and the global average temperature.

    I used H. H. Lamb’s
    England Winter Severity index
    as my primary source of
    Little Ice Age temperatures:

      It is the length of the cycle, not the intensity.

      • Richard Greene says:

        Thank you for the information.

      • bazmd says:

        Longer Solar minimums coincide with cooler periods. Solar cycle length is measured from solar maximum to solar maximum.

        There’s is a lag of around 18-24 months between the end of a solar cycle and colder periods, more intense solar cycles have shorter solar minimums, during shorter solar minimums new solar cycles begin during the 18-24 month lag period negating a cooler period.

        During weaker solar cycles with longer solar minimums new solar cycles begin after the 18-24 month lag, causing colder periods.

        Longer periods without intense solar activity such as high UV-xrays etc cause periods of noticeable cooling.

      “There is no observed 11 year
      average temperature cycle
      to match the 11 year
      average sunspot cycle.”

      The hint is that an 11 year climate cycles have been found in places well away from ocean influences.

  2. Donna K. Becker says:

    I shared this information with a Progressive friend, who replied that the prediction only meant that the temperature of the thermosphere would cool. If that were the case, and the phenomenon wouldn’t affect surface temps, why bother to announce it?

  3. Nutation_discombobulation says:

    It’s unseasonably cold downunder as well. There has been a noticeable pattern emerging over the past 3 or 4 years where the Southern Polar vortex resists releasing its tentacles until well into late spring. This is the first time I can remember in 16 years living in our present home that we have had to lite our log burner in November.

    My wife was talking to a person in the wine industry and apparently hundreds of tons of grapes and fruit were lost in a recent polar blast, but absolutely no media coverage of the losses.

    When the sun comes out it is blistering hot as if there were no ozone, but the atmosphere and winds are chilling, very strange indeed. Until we fully understand gravitation I don’t think we will fully comprehend the sun’s effect on our climate.

    Persons who make a living studying sun cycles suggest that the next cycle will be similar to this one, or perhaps longer and with greater turbulence, but a grand minimum is still quite likely.

    • John says:

      Cooler temps seem to be hanging around here on the Sunny Coast too.
      Flat out reaching mid 20s max. The real indication will be from mid Dec through Jan and Feb if our mid 30s are still happening.

  4. RW says:

    How well does sun activity or intensity correlate with unaltered daily ushcn ?

    • Bazmd says:

      Hi RW, If you took temperature data of night and day and averaged them together, you would not find a corelation between sunrise and sunset either, any solar signal would be “averaged out” with the noise from other sites.
