Two Out Of Three Ain’t Bad

We have very low sunspot activity and a possible La Nina forming. Now all we need is a big volcanic eruption.

  1. That’s a horrifically bad color scale they’re using. It even recycles colors, using the indistinguishable dark purples and reds for very positive and negative anomalies.

    Instinctively, we think of “cool” greens and blues and “warm” yellows and reds. That’s not what they’ve done at all: green means higher than “normal” and red could mean a seven-degree cold anomaly.

    Interesting that the anomaly chart traces out the rowers’ route. Almost a Gore effect, isn’t it?

      yikes……thanks for pointing that out Keith….the rowers are freezing

      The colors are easy..yellow to purple is warmer… to purple is colder

    Steven please get your head right …. as the warminista told you it is only above normal sea ice because so much of it has melted … don’t you know nothin’

    In Indonesia:Mount Rokatenda in East Nusa Tenggara province erupted early Saturday morning
    Maybe 3 for 3?

    Poles going to flip on the sun(happens every 11 years) around start of winter and tends to set up blocking, Cold winter
    Good video Joe Bastardi did the other day on the sun sunspots pdo. Not going to let you get away with it.

    Cool water off western Africa and cool water in the eastern Caribbean

    • F. Guimaraes says:

      Africa has been consistently colder than S. America in recent years… I think this indicates some “forcing” associated with Antarctica increasing icecap and the current trend for another La Nina is associated with this forcing too.

    Nah, mmCO2 will burn us all! The ITCZ [see fairy tales right here] hotspots will save us and don’t forget all that hideaway warmy warmy stuff all saved up inde oceans ‘n’all, yup the IPCC have their finger on the pulse, someone should tell ’em Arrhenius is dead though.

    My favorite color is just North of Western Canada. Maybe I am a little sadistic.

    Does anyone know what the SST anomalies have been for the year up to now– and for last year?

    • F. Guimaraes says:

      PDO is a little less negative this year than 2012,

      AMO is a little less positive

      and NINO-3.4 region continues the trend continued negative anomalies since 2010,

      General cooling of southern oceans, probably connected with record extent of Antarctic icecap,

    As I said before Steve, I really think a large VEI6+ will not happen anytime soon, but I agree that it’d be wonderful for “our cause” if it indeed happened, to dismiss this great hoax once and for all…
    I believe large EQs and large eruptions are connected in some way (both come from underground!:-) and we have had too many large EQs recently…

    • squid2112 says:

      One cannot say much about predicting a VE, but I would disagree that “… it’d be wonderful for ‘our cause’ …”. I think the opposite would be “wonderful for our cause” as I am confident we will be continuing to cool without it, and without a VE the nutters have less to grab onto for excuses.

  11. greg says: Did you see Greenland melting from hydrothermal LOLOLOL Settled Science!!!

  12. crosspatch says:

    I currently don’t see any indication of a La Nina developing any time soon. The trades are just about dead “average” which would indicate continued neutral conditions. The ENSO models are showing most of the more recent model runs pointing to more likely El Nino than La Nina but even if we did get an El Nino, we wouldn’t see anything too powerful as there doesn’t seem to be a lot of warm water in the Western Pacific Warm Pool.

    “It’s worse than we thought”

  14. crosspatch says:

    What is really interesting to me is the extent to which the Indian Ocean has been cooling recently:

  15. Andy Oz says:

    Three weeks of northern summer to go. The West African and Caribbean hurricanes need to get a move on, or there won’t be enough heat there to get them going. Had a cold and wet winter across southern Australia.

    Gaia needs to keep a cork in it for a couple more years. A nice cold winter or 2 and the credibility of the CAGW crowd will be equal those who believe Oh-Bomb-Ya will close Gitmo as he promised.
