Second Coolest Start To The Year In The US

The number of warm days from January-May was second lowest on record in the US, after 1983 – which was cooled by dust from the eruption of Mt. Agung. The warmest years were 1910, 1934 and 2012.

    What is the world trend?
    How much adjustment can we expect?

    • (Tony if I say anything here that you think is not accurate, please feel free to correct me. I would not take offence; indeed I’d be appreciative of your viewpoint in such an instance.)

      Gerald, thanks to Tony’s work, you can see the temperature trend in Australia mimics that of the US at This is significant for a number of reasons; the first being that Australia is almost on the exact opposite side of the planet to the continental USA. The world trend is therefore as Tony has depicted it. This correlation between Australian and US temperature data pertains up until recent times at which point the Australian Bureau of Meteorology started to fiddle with both the methods of collection and the data itself. A number of politicians in the House of Representatives (at the Federal level of our Government) have woken up to this fact and are agitating to have the ABoM audited but to no avail because within the Government (which at present is a Liberal National Party Coalition) there are a number of members who believe in Anthropogenic Global Warming.

      Australia is significant from another viewpoint in that, since the 1880s, temperature data has been kept at well established temperature measuring stations throughout Australia. (Tony has shown plots of their distribution in some of his many presentations.) From the outset, the density of data reading stations was not as well developed as is the case in the US but they were well run and they are amongst the best in the world when it comes to recording temperatures across a very large area. One unfortunate thing about this is that the ABoM evidently “lost” archival data in recent years and has been involved in “creative” accounting.

    There is independent corroboration for your data at:

    Mind you it is only against a 30 year mean, but the last 5 years are below this 30 year mean from all surface temp stations globally, unadjusted.

    The recorded global temperature for previous years:
    2015 average: 0.98 °F (0.54 °C) below normal
    2016 average: 0.48 °F (0.27 °C) below normal
    2017 average: 0.47 °F (0.26 °C) below normal
    2018 average: 1.33 °F (0.74 °C) below normal
    2019 average: 0.65 °F (0.36 °C) below normal

    Love your charts.
    But Pinatubo had a big eruption in 1991.
    No need to show this post.

    It was Mt Agung I believe, but yeah, it has been a real cool Spring up here in MN.

  5. Ranger says:

    Is there are source(s) of historical world global temperatures somewhere that can be downloaded? That is, raw data that has not been tampered with?

    Any figures on Australia in this regard? Surprisingly we had the press, even the ABC, talking about record low temperatures in Queensland recently. From living 12 years on the Gold Coast it does seem much cooler than normal, with us having to run the A/C to warm up the house every morning from April onwards, normally it takes till now before that happened.

    The BOM would have us believe temperatures were skyrocketing, even if we were in an Ice Age.

    Any details here would be appreciated.

    And yet… right now when I go to Google, one of the top news blips from something called “” states that Siberia is 10 degrees Celsius above normal! I guess we cant just go to Siberia and check this out, but if “” says so I suppose we should believe it. They’re probably just as credible as “ScienceAlert”, right?
    Who are these guys?

    • arn says:

      I think that it is very interessting that such a superhuge region is 10degress above normal.
      This would mean that for any part that is “normal” or colder in sibiria there is another part the similar size that is 20degress+ and more about normal.

      I do not doubt that those 10 degrees can appear for a shorter period of time as inner landmass has highly volatile temperatures,
      but not as long term trend.

  8. Mr Sir says:

    Are you also going to talk about arctic sea ice volume being at a record low in 2020?

    Of course there is a solar minimum (no sunspots) going on that is supposed to last around 20 years.
