We have had over 7″ of rain this month and it is only June 10th. It rains nearly every day. It has been so cold, I have had to fire up the wood stove and will have to do this tonight, too. The temperatures for the last several weeks seldom rises above 70 degrees, often is below 65 degrees. Thick clouds cover the skies with only rare days with the sun shining.
Time for the NYT to wonder what happened to global warming! What to Make of a Climate-Change Plateau – NYTimes.com
The slowdown is a bit of a mystery to climate scientists. True, the basic theory that predicts a warming of the planet in response to human emissions does not suggest that warming should be smooth and continuous. To the contrary, in a climate system still dominated by natural variability, there is every reason to think the warming will proceed in fits and starts.
But given how much is riding on the scientific forecast, the practitioners of climate science would like to understand exactly what is going on. They admit that they do not, even though some potential mechanisms of the slowdown have been suggested. The situation highlights important gaps in our knowledge of the climate system, some of which cannot be closed until we get better measurements from high in space and from deep in the ocean.
The latest scam is to claim the oceans are making us colder and wetter. But all the forecasts claimed the opposite. At no time did the warming forecasters say we would have this ‘plateau’. They said it would go up and up and up and starting this year, yes, this year, it would be irreversible. That is, we are going to roast to death not freeze in June. As vicious cold weather hammers the Northern Hemisphere, this reminds me greatly of the cold era from 1970-1980 which got colder and wetter and more snow and everyone including scientists were wondering about a new Ice Age.
So far this month, every day is colder and wetter than the previous. It was so dark today, it looked like November outside, dreary and grey with lots of showers. We are way, way over the normal rain for this month. Here is a funny forecast: 2013 Long-Range Weather Forecast for Albany, New York
HAHAHA. This happened for the last year for England. The weather experts told everyone it would be super hot and dry only to see flood after flood, ice storms, blizzards and so forth. Lots of credibility was deservedly lost by the global warming experts. We see this now happening more and more not less and less and seeking out the causes is important. First, a look at this ‘plateau’ at random:
So, this summer isn’t the only cold one. But this year is the coldest, definitely. When Mount Pinatubo Erupted, our warm summer suddenly turned cold and wet and we had record snow that winter and I was living in a tent on my mountain during all that. This summer is equally dark and cold! We have no massive volcanic eruption this year so it isn’t caused by a volcano.
Sun Headed Into Hibernation, Solar Studies Predicts which is exactly what my astronomer dad predicted before he died! Solar Activity Lowest in Almost 100 Years, Implications for Climate is obvious. This is BAD NEWS if you want a warmer planet. On the other hand, Less Sunspot Activity Is Not A Climate Change Fix claims the desperate global warming people. The converse, CO2 will save us from a repeat of the Little Ice Age is good news, no?
SpaceWeather.com — News and information about meteor showers, solar flares, auroras, and near-Earth asteroids
Virtually no sun spots today. This is the solar maximum. And it is minimum. Flexibility in accepting data is life and death. The global warming people deliberately left out the sun from all calculations. They still do this even as we hammer them about this vital aspect to what keeps us from freezing to death. The sun is not a steady state system. It is a variable star to some degree and this is obvious to see because nothing else explains all the repeated Ice Ages and their ferocity.
My hummingbirds know this. They came at the middle of May to build nests and flew around me when I worked in the garden but two weeks ago, suddenly hit the feeder very, very hard, drinking it dry in less than four hours and then they fled and have not returned. Right afterwards, we had nonstop rain and cold temperatures. The little birdies know. Why can’t we figure this out? I haven’t even planted much of the garden due to too much water falling from the heavens and my springs that run only in the spring are running hard as are all the streams and rivers here.
And then there is the massive floods in Europe: Thousands evacuated as Elbe bursts dam in German floods as rain falls and falls in Europe. And the Midwest, too. Hot and dry, indeed. No more snow, yeah. The global warming predictions have been very poor for the last three years and getting worse every year. The sun heats us. And isn’t as much as before.

ONE OF MY READERS COULDN’T POST SO…I decided to publish his email because I think it should appear.

Hello, I tried to comment on your article about global warming plateau, but wordpress wouldn’t let me log in, so i’ll just send you a email.
Interesting how the NYTimes writer decries global warming skeptics who like to “cherry-pick” data (from 1998) to show there has no been no global warming since then, while the global warming proselytizers refuse to acknowledge the data going back 2,000 years or so showing that at times it was much warmer in the past!
Thank you very much for your information.
You mentioned something about your father predicting less sun spots or something like that. If you have more info on that, i would be interested.
The latest scam is to claim the oceans are making us colder and wetter.
I know a Geography Prof who uses that line.
Coastal So Cal has been cold and cloudy for years.
As unlikely as this may sound, we have lucked out in recent years when it comes to global warming.
This morning it’s 53 degrees and pouring rain; flood watches are up across NH and Maine; it’s been cold and rainy here for all but 2 or 3 days this month, and the ground is so saturated that there’s nowhere for the water to go but to run off. Today’s high temp is supposed to be 63 degrees, with rain forcasted through Fri.; we won’t even see the sun again until Sat. So far, this year looks to be a replay of ’08; cold, snowy winter, damp, rainy, cool summer and fall, followed by another cold, snowy winter. From my POV, a bit of global warming would be welcome, too bad it’s not happening. Oh well, at least it ought to keep my electric bill down if I don’t have to run the AC too much. 🙂
I just ran out of firewood today!
Cold and windy on the west coast,about 5 degrees below normal.Got my heaters going too.It’s never really hot living on the water but the air today has a real winter feel to it.
Not stopping the resident animals any here.
The Bald Eagles are back,the mother Mallard still has 8 out of her original 10 chicks,herons are all over,and we even have a big Golden eagle visiting us!
3-4 degrees celcius colder than normal here too.
We had some warmth for a couple of weeks but now brrr….
+17 C at the moment.
No rain though and nice sunny weather.
I am glad you posted this. I recently told my wife that meteorologists (formerly “weathermen”) were complete idiots and had no idea what the weather would be at any given time. (She had complained that the weather forcast was never right.) I also told her that the older men who used to do the weather report were all replaced by younger beautiful people who now project themselves as celebrities more than anything else.
The best way to tell the weather on TV is to view the radar screen, but this gives you only about a 2-4 hour timeline depending on wind speed.
The weather report is just a form of local entertainment (like everything else on TV) and should never be taken seriously.
I am also amazed that scientists think they can understand how the earth’s climate works down to the last molecule. How incredibly arrogant.
These past few cold winters I’ve discovered one thing for sure. Bad weather works fast. All those snowstorms were flying into the city quicker than I could shovel.
Not only did it build up quickly, it compacted the snow below it turning it into rock hard ice. As I pounded away at the ice, I realized that any ice age event would arrive fast. It would only be a matter of years, less than a decade, that we could be covered under miles of ice and snow. In fact only a season of that kind of weather would destroy most people’s homes. Our roofs are not designed to handle that kind of weight.
Here is to hoping it won’t happen during our lifetimes.
melponeme_k, I don’t think the ice gets a mile thick in less than a decade.
They’ve been drilling ice cores in Greenland and the ice sheet there is something like a hundred thousand years old.
But of course, an ice sheet one inch thick will still reflect sunlight, increasing earth’s albedo as the light bounces off into space.
I still think the climate (not weather) will trend hotter over the coming decades and century, but that the CO2 will have a more destructive effect on the oceans, shifting the pH to the acidic by just a fraction.
… Also, the proposed solution (proposed by the one-big-happy-world global economists), also known as financial fraud, will not change this trend in CO2 one iota. The financial fraud industry has just about run its course.
The fake solution was the CO2 derivatives futures market they were busy building. Honest, easily fooled environmentalists fell for that idea while the bankers chortled privately that the CO2 ‘pollution’ market would be bigger than the entire energy market, itself, in ‘value’.
CO2 doesn’t pollute the ocean. Acid rain does this! And Fukushima is doing this, big time and is never mentioned by the elites.
NOTE THAT FACT. They never, ever talk about Fukushima’s pollution. Hardly a peep from them, note our media barely ever mentions Fukushima, too.
Acid rain is acidic in part, because of CO2. And elevated CO2 levels in the AIR have a measurable effect on seawater.
Absolutely correct about Fukushima. Japan already has radioactive dead zones along its eastern coast. And you’d think it would be a big deal because Japan eats so much seafood. When they DO mention Fukushima they never mention that its poison is bio-accumulated. The radiation survey meters some folks are carrying around miss 99% of the bio-accumulated radiation because it is internal.
It’s hard to predict at this point just how radioactive the entire ocean will be — since Fukushima is a single source (unlike CO2, where the sources are distributed worldwide) … the oceans will dilute the radioactive pollution, but it is the most mind-bogglingly destructive type of pollution you can imagine. That Russian spy was killed with a microscopic speck of the stuff.
CO2 is not SULFUR DIOXIDE. That is the ‘acid’ stuff we are worried about.
Plants eat CO2. Sulfur dioxide kills plants. SO2 is also fatal to humans. CO2 is what we produce by breathing.
