Zeke from Berkeley Earth shows the whole earth burning up since 1960, particularly the Arctic – which has warmed “by more than 4C.
Zeke Hausfather on Twitter: “The world as a whole has warmed by 0.9C just since 1960, with some parts of the Arctic warming by more than 4C. Here is a map of warming between January 1960 and August 2019: https://t.co/npJrw5TIeb” / Twitter
He shows Antarctic warming, which NASA wrote in 2004 had cooled significantly.
Satellites show no warming in Antarctica, since 2004 – so we can see that the Berkeley earth trends for Antarctica are incorrect.
There was almost no sea ice around Antarctica in January 1976
Now let’s look at why Zeke chose 1960 for a start date. There was a unanimous consensus Earth was cooling.
Earth had cooled sharply prior to Zeke’s start date.
Scientists were talking about a new ice age.
Iceland was blocked by sea ice for the first time in at least 75 years.
Next let’s look at the US, which is one of the few places on Earth with good historical coverage.
Zeke starts his map near the end of a 30 year cooling trend.
The US has been cooling over the past century.
Now let’s look at the Arctic data which is being hidden. There was 9C Arctic warming by 1939, and sea ice was disappearing
Zeke starts his trend map right at the low point for Arctic sea ice.
There was 11C Arctic winter warming by 1954, and scientists blamed it on CO2 – right before temperatures plummeted into the ice age scare.
Arctic warming and cooling cycles correlate with an ocean circulation pattern – the AMO – not CO2.
Zeke has good reason to hide the Arctic data before 1960.
Climate scientists have wanted to hide the warmth of the 1940’s – and that is exactly what they are doing.
Zeke has now completely erased it. He blames it on National Geographic.
So the next question is – why is National Geographic hiding the warm pre-1960 data from their November 1976 graph?
