    “La Niña usually means warmer temperatures in the United States, particularly the Southeast, but this year the North Atlantic Oscillation is trumping La Niña……
    Weather experts call it a see-saw pattern, and it will eventually affect water temperatures, though that’s a secondary effect, Barnston said.”

    I’m sure these junior “scientists” will be properly admonished for even hinting at the possibility of nature possessing a cyclic balancing propensity. I suppose I should be happy someone is actually getting press time for such utterances, but they’re awful late to the party.

      It’ll take a long while to sink the AGW ship. Be thankful for this one torpedo. Hopefully it’s the beginning of many telling the truth.

        He is still only seeing part of the picture. There was a lot left out because Weather conditions are contrlled by more that any one or two drivers. First ting out of his mouth should have been solar followed by reactions by Ocean Atmosphere patterns of which there are more than 9 or 10 involved to affect those locations on the globe.

    This is a nice after the fact explanation for weather events that have already occurred and that might occur in the near future. It doesn’t have very much implication for the long term future.

    What they didn’t dare to say is that the NAO has been predominantly negative or positive for thirty years at a time in the past. Last year it went deeply negative after thirty years of positive domination. Likewise ENSO is either La Nina dominated when the IPO (Interdecadal pacific Oscillation ) is negative or El Nino dominated when the IPO is positive. The IPO went negative in 2000 and will likely stay that way for another twenty years.
    In addition the PDO is also at the beginning of a thirty year negative run and the AMO which is still positive is in decline. Climate modelers have postulated we would not see a long run of these negative phases again. We shall see. I predict dramatic global cooling for the next twenty years.

      Sounds like the cold is coming (back). I had a fabulous opportunity from 1972 to 1975 to spend a lot of time outdoors in Europe. I was in the tank corps in the US Army. It was very cold outside during winter. When I went back home to Southern California it was very wet – I rode a motorcycle in those days; so I remember the cold and the wet.

  4. Brian Greene (The Elegant Universe) is at Columbia too. Can’t be all bad there.
