The Trenberth Hot Spot

After Sandy hit, Trenberth announced that global warming had caused the water to warm off the coast of New Jersey, forming a small warm spot in the midst of very cold water.

  1. Did Trenberth ever hear of the Gulf Stream?

  2. HankH says:

    Now, that’s pretty cool (er, hot). CO2 can not only bypass physical laws and teleconnect to the ocean deep but it can also focus like a laser on a patch of water to turn hurricanes into tropical storms before making landfall. CO2 has so many magical properties 😉

    Looks like this current hurricane could be another bust with below normal water temperatures across much of the tropical Atlantic.

    Trenberth has proven himself with 97% certainty to be an utter fool with his recent rant about how all men are rapists and all women are victims of rape. He’s a complete nut job, one of Jim Hansen muppets.

  5. It’s localized global warming.

    Kevin T. is a little man, both in terms of physical stature and intellectual stature. His counter arguments to skeptics are fact-free on the technical issues and intensely ad-hominem on the political side. When he and Judy Curry spoke back-to-back at the World Affairs Conference in Boulder CO in April on matters of climate change, the contrast between her technical arguments and his personal attacks could not have been more clear.

    It’s no wonder he believes in “heat-hiding-in-the-oceans” where it cannot be measured. That’s the perfect place for fact-free climate “scientists” to take refuge.

    Comfy for a while, but it will not last.

    Climate Scientists confuse the hell out of me. One minute they say we are gonna have less storms and rainfall

    Nek minute they say we are gonna have more and more severe storms??

    I met a schizophrenic once………..no I didn’t!!

    I don’t know the condition on the east cost but that warm spot it where the Hudson river dumps into the Atlantic, just maybe it is from the spring run off?

  9. Bob Tisdale says:

    The sea surface temperatures for the extratropical portion of Sandy’s storm track shifted DOWN in the 1960s:

    As a result, from 1938 (the year of the Great New England Hurricane) to 2012 (the year of Sandy), the sea surface temperatures there show a cooling rate of about -0.04 deg C/decade:

    I ran across this awhile back, its the hot spot:

    A NASA satellite confirms that overturning in the North Atlantic Ocean—a process where surface water sinks and deep water rises due to varying water densities—speeds up and slows down by 20 to 30 percent over 12- to 14-year cycles. Scientists previously believed that a change of this magnitude would take hundreds of years, rather than close to a decade…
