Frequency Of Warm Winter Days Declining In The US


The frequency of warm winter days in the US has been declining for a century. In 1954, almost one fourth of winter days in the US were over 60F, but in 2010 the percent of warm days just over 10%.

Similarly, the frequency of hot summers days has declined. Warmth is becoming a thing of the past in the US.

    Panic in the Netherlands because december is warm.

    • wert says:

      As if the modern warm december was more global than the medieval warm period.

      BTW where is the cold air today? US east coast and EU west coast are warm. Looking at a weather map, North Canada is pretty much freezing, and Greenland of course, as well as some Siberia. Antarctica might be described as jolly hot in -40 degrees.

        • Latitude says:

          and to think, it was just a few weeks ago it was all about California
          …now nothing

        • Gail Combs says:

          Yes, It looks like the west coast mountains are getting plastered and it is barely winter. (They need the snow though for moisture this coming summer.)

        • Menicholas says:

          When it was dry in California, it was front page news.
          Now that they are getting needed moisture, there is not a peep about it.
          Tonight I was watching a show about Florida panthers and alligators, and they stated several times that the alligators are running out of room because of “climate change” causing sea levels to diminish alligator habitat.
          This despite:
          -The climate is not changing
          -The sea is rising by millimeters at most, and at the same rate it has been rising for over a hundred years, presumably before there was any “climate change”.
          – There are more gators than in a very long time, if not ever. Developers put in new retention ponds with almost every housing development, and they are adding more of them than ever during road construction projects.
          – The vast majority of gators live no where near the ocean, residing in the everglades and inland lakes, streams and swamps.

          The fabled loss of habitat due to climate change was stated baldy in matter of fact terms.
          If one had no other knowledge but the propaganda, the general impression would be that oceans are rising fast and drowning the coasts.
          The climate liars are completely out of control, just making crap up every day and in every possible situation.
          Facts mean nothing to these jackass lying scumbags.

      • saveenergy says:

        But Gail, that list can’t be true it’s….. the ‘Hottest Year Ever’ don’t you know everything is melting, we’ll be drowned in our beds by the boiling acid sea.
        We need Al Gorithm to fly around the world (again) to save us.

  2. saveenergy says:

    “Warmth is becoming a thing of the past in the US.”
    Children wont know what mild winter is like

  3. Eric barnes says:

    Did you clear that with Mosher and zeke? I am sure there is some sooper dooper rationalization they have to explain this lol

  4. Andy DC says:

    There are massive cold pools over both the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, where nobody lives. Those will be ignored or deleted out of existence by our alarmist friends.

    • Menicholas says:

      The one thing that is for sure is we have no idea what is actually happening, because the lies run so deep and wide.
      I suppose the satellite data is at least sort of believable.

  5. markstoval says:

    As we head towards the end or the year it is traditional to look at things and make an assessment of the situation. This is more important that any new-year’s resolutions or predictions.

    My assessment is that we are losing in 3 main areas where we could make headway. (2 of which are not controversial on our side of the fence)

    1) We have lost the battle so far on the fact that a warmer world is a very good thing. If only CO2 did increase temperatures! Looking at warm periods in the past we see that life on this planet flourishes in the warmth. The planet is way too cold now.

    2) We have failed to get out the word (though Steve Goddard tries!) that the honest temperature record in this interglacial is one of ups and downs with the cold periods being colder each time. The warm periods are not as warm each time either. And we have allowed the liars in government and the grant-seekers to cook the books without the public being made award of the horrible scientific fraud. They say there was no Little Ice Age! Son of a B!

    3) We skeptics have even failed to make our lukewarmer friends see that CO2 can not and does not warm the surface. There is an “atmospheric effect” due to gravitation, solar insolation, orbital changes, water in all its phases (such as the oceans and humidity), conduction, convection, advection, and other factors. There are many factors, but CO2 doubling just is not one of them. The net effect of CO2 is cooling. Look to the upper atmosphere and see how CO2 radiates heat out to space for example.

    We can fight on ignoring number 3 (one may not mention number 3 at WUWT very much or you will be shown the door), but we are failing at number 1 and number 2 also. I don’t have any answers other than keep trying to put some facts out there and hope for the best.

    I hope the new year brings our side success, but I am not as optimistic as many of my friends seem to be.

    ~ Mark

    • Menicholas says:

      Good points Mark.
      My main source of optimism is the belief that a big fat lie must eventually be shown for what it is.
      One cannot misrepresent reality forever.
      But this is, I confess, mostly wishful thinking.

      • Menicholas,

        it is more than wishful thinking that reality will prevail over propaganda. The problem is how long it may take and the price we will all pay.

        But I believe that’s what you are thinking, too.

        • Menicholas says:

          Yes, and thank you for the clarification.
          It would be more accurate for me to say I am tired of waiting for some sign that the tide is shifting.
          “Eventually” covers a lot of time.
          Thanks again.

        • Gail Combs says:

          If you look at the goals and look at what the Elite has accomplish you will see they have just about everything they want. Therefore expect a shift to another ‘scare’ fairly soon.

          #1. A tax to support the UN – That was what was agreed to with the USA eventually forking over 1 trillion a year. The Trans-Pacific Partnership trade agreement has the enforcement part of the Climate arement. link 1 and summary.

          #2. A shift from coal, oil and nuclear to natural gas. Wind and solar were never meant to be anything but a short term scam.

          Ged Davis was VP of Shell Oil when he was IPCC lead author for scenarios. Of particular interest is his optimum scenario, Sustainable Development (B1) aka Agenda 21. No Nuclear, Coal and Oil phased out leaving Natural gas as the winner with ‘Green Energy’ also owned by BP, Shell and their internationalist buddies, as the big winners.

          From the climategate e-mails

          4. Sustainable Development (B1)

          The central elements of this scenario family include high levels of environmental and social consciousness, successful governance including major social innovation, and reductions in income and social inequality. Successful forms of governance allow many problems which are currently hard or difficult to resolve to fall within the competency of government and other organisations….. The concerns over global sustainable development, expressed in a myriad of environmental and social issues, results in the eventual successful management of the interaction between human activities and the biosphere…. Besides cleaning up air quality, there is emphasis on improving the availability and quality of water. [no doubt the coming scam – gc]
          4.21 Energy Resources/Technology
          Energy efficiency innovations, and successful institutional innovations disseminating their use, result in much lower levels of energy use relative to historic patterns. The forward-looking nature of societal planning results in relatively smooth transitions to alternative energy systems as conventional oil and gas resources dwindle in availability. There is major use of unconventional natural gas as fuel supply during the transition, but the major push is towards renewable resources such as solar and wind. The impact of environmental concerns is a significant factor in the planning for new energy systems. Two alternative energy systems, leading to two sub-scenarios, are considered to provide this energy:
          1. Widespread expansion of natural gas, with a growing role for renewable energy (scenario B1N). Oil and coal are of lesser importance, especially post-2050. This transition is faster in the developed than in the developing countries.
          2. A more rapid development of renewables, replacing coal and oil; the bulk of the remaining energy coming from natural gas (scenario B1R).

          This exactly what we are seeing as my comments starting HERE show. Closing of oil and coal plants, nuclear out of the mix and natural gas the big winner. A nod to renewable but no real dependence.

          ” Net U.S. Power Generation Share by Source, 1949-2012″

          From the US government:

          …Growth in natural gas-fired generation comes from two sources: the power sector and the end-use sector. Growth in natural gas-fired generation in the power sector accounts for 78% of the overall increase in generation from that fuel through 2040 in the Reference case; growth in the end-use sector—largely firms in manufacturing industries that use natural gas-fired combined heat and power units for onsite electricity generation—accounts for the remaining 22%. Growth in natural gas-fired generation in both of these sectors results in natural gas-fired generation surpassing coal-fired generation by 2040….

        • Gail Combs says:

          The destruction of out property right has also been accomplished.
          The passage of the Food Safety Modernization Act allows the World Trade Organization to regulate US farmers. Those regulations allow any farmer to be bankrupted and forced off his land.

          ICLEI has ‘teamed up’ with towns and cities to hand them boilerplate zoning and development code models. Once installed, form-based codes become the new laws governing a wide range of activities in your community. The biggest problem is the bureaucrat in charge has full authority and the property owner has no right to trial. NO RECOURSE! (Sorry can’t find the link)

          …US president George H.W. Bush signed the document for the US. In signing, each nation pledge to adopt the goals of Agenda 21. In 1993, President Bill Clinton, in compliance with Agenda 21, signed Executive Order #12852 to create the President’s Council on Sustainable Development in order to “harmonize” US environmental policy with UN directives as outlined in Agenda 21. The EO directed all agencies of the Federal Government to work with state and local community governments in a joint effort “reinvent” government using the guidelines outlined in Agenda 21. As a result, with the assistance of groups like ICLEI, Sustainable Development is now emerging as government policy in every town, county and state in the nation….

          In 1976, the U.S. government signed a UN document that declared:

          Land … cannot be treated as an ordinary asset controlled by individuals and subject to the pressures and inefficiencies of the market. Private land ownership is also a principal instrument of accumulation and concentration of wealth and therefore contributes to social injustice;
          D-1. Government must control the use of land to achieve equitable distribution of resources;
          D-2. Control land use through zoning and land-use planning;
          D-3. Excessive profits from land use must be recaptured by government;
          D-4. Public ownership of land should be used to exercise urban and rural land reform;
          D-5. Owner rights should be separated from development rights, which should be held by a public authority.
          This document was signed on behalf of the U.S. by Carla A. Hills, then secretary of housing and urban development, and William K. Reilly, then head of the Conservation Fund, who later became the administrator of the EPA.
          Land-use controls found their way into the 1987 report of the World Commission on Environment and Development, “Our Common Future,” which first defined the term “sustainable development.” The meaning of sustainable development here defined was codified in another U.N. document called “Agenda 21,” which was signed by President George H.W. Bush in 1992. This document recommended that every nation create a national sustainable development initiative….

          During Clinton we got House Concurrent Resolution 25

          “The official title of the resolution [H. Con. Res. 25] as introduced is: “Expressing the sense of Congress that it is the goal of the United States that, not later than January 1, 2025, the agricultural, forestry, and working land of the United States should provide from renewable resources not less than 25 percent of the total energy consumed in the United States and continue to produce safe, abundant, and affordable food, feed, and fiber.”

          So it looks like they have everything in place.
