GISS Clueless In 1999 : Warmer Winters Linked To Greenhouse Gases

Warmer and Wetter Winters in Europe and Western North America Linked to Increasing Greenhouse Gases

June 2, 1999

Why are winters warming up so much faster over Northern Hemisphere continents than over the rest of the globe? A new study by NASA researchers in the June 3 issue of the journal Nature is the first to link the well-documented large degree of North America and Eurasia winter warming and the associated wind changes to rising greenhouse gas levels in the atmosphere.

Using a computer climate model to try and understand where the warming over the past three decades is coming from, Shindell and colleagues discovered that in the model, increasing greenhouse gases cause stronger spiraling winds over the North Pole, a phenomenon called the polar vortex, that change the normal Northern Hemisphere climate. “Northern Hemisphere winters have been warming up for the past 30 years,” Shindell said. “It’s a big concern to know why this happens.”

Since this report came out – definitively tying winter warming to CO2, winter temperatures have plummeted in Europe and Western North America – while CO2 levels have continued to increase.

These people have no idea what they are talking about, yet they continue to talk incessantly.

    I would not be surprised if that page goes “missing” very soon.

    This global warming hoax is on its last leg. Since global cooling is already causing death from droughts and freezing.

    Will those responsible for the hoax, fooling millions of people, pushing their agenda into our schools and colleges, legislating cap and trade, shutting down farms and ranches, and wasting millions of dollars of false hope green projects be brought to justice?

    I doubt it.

    That warm upper air ridge in NE Canada and Greenland normally makes it cold and snowy for the populated ares of the middle latitudes. So warm in certain places does make it cold for others. What any of this has to do with global warming, I don’t know!

    Congratulation for finding (again) old stuff that shows how silly the whole AGW-thing is.

    winter temperatures have plummeted in Europe and Western North America – while CO2 levels have continued to increase.

    well then clearly these cold winter are caused by increased co2

  6. Mohatdebos says:

    Would it be rude to ask Mr. Shindell whether he still believes that higher CO2 concentrations are responsible for the warming? winters in the Northern Hemisphere.

  7. Paul H says:

    “Using a computer climate model ”

    It must be absolutely boiling in their computer models.

  8. Dave N says:

    Well, they’re certainly “wetter”; all that white stuff is made of water. I wonder if GISS are smart enough to know that?

  9. Scarlet Pumpernickel says:

    Winters warm in europe, its Global Warming. Winters cold in europe, its Global Warming LOL

  10. Using a computer climate model

    Yes, those computer models forecasting warmer winters since 1999 are working out so well. Why, look at all the graveyards with the people frozen to death over the last 10 years.

    Its gonna get exciting as we all know CO2 levels follow temperature. The problem is that colder temperatures and less CO2 results in major crop failure across the world. I see Florida came close to loosing its orange crop for a second year in a row 😦
