May 2014 – Canada is Cooling at -0.32C Per Decade Since 1998

Filed under: Canada,Environment Canada Data — sunshinehours1 @ 5:13 AM
Tags: ,

Environment Canada publishes monthly summaries here. The data included Tmax, Tmean, Tmin and Normals (the D column). The Normals column is “Mean Temperature difference from Normal (1971-2000) (°C)”. These are supposedly the higher quality stations. Only some of the stations get a Normals value.

I could just look at the stations with Normals and summarize the data. But some of the stations are close together. So I thought why not summarize the data by 1×1 grid square and then summarize the grid squares.

Correction: I left the green line out of these graphs –   The green line is the count of grid squares with data in them. That is dropping like a stone. (I will discuss this in another post).

And why not see what happens from 1998. We know 1998 is a pivot point in climate.

The trend for the whole country from 1998 is cooling at -0.32C/decade. Saskatchewan and Manitoba are cooling at over -.8 C /decade.  Wow.

Here are the trends for each province.

AMO (May) vs Antarctic Sea Ice Day 138

Filed under: AMO,Antarctic Sea Ice — sunshinehours1 @ 12:47 PM
Tags: , , , ,

The graph is in thise post compares sea ice extent for just one day of each year – 138 to the AMO for the month day 138 is in – in this case May. There isn’t any AMO data for May 2014 yet.

AMO data comes from NOAA, Sea Ice data comes from NSIDC.

The red is the  May AMO – Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation. The blue is Antarctic Sea Ice Extent just for day 138.

The dashed lines are the liner trends for each.

I could just look at the stations with Normals and summarize the data. But some of the stations are close together. So I thought why not summarize the data by 1×1 grid square and then summarize the grid squares. The green line is the count of grid squares with data in them. That is dropping like a stone.

And why not see what happens from 1998. We know 1998 is a pivot point in climate.

The trend for the whole country from 1998 is cooling at -0.13C/decade. The big surprise is Ontario. The last time I did this it was warming. Here are the trends for each province.

HADCET – Top 60 Year Warming Trends By Month

Filed under: HADCET — sunshinehours1 @ 9:13 AM
Tags: ,

The other day I did a post about HADCET data by month showing how some of the months have a 350 year flat trend.

The next day I did a post about the  top 18 year warming trends at anytime in the 350 year history of HADCET.

How about 60 years? Surely the key period in global warming propaganda is 1950 on. You might expect them all to be around 1950 to 2000 or so wouldn’t you? Well, if you believe in global warming you might. But if you haven’t been taken in, you might not.

Well, only two months (July and August) were from the modern era.  October was close, but 1912 to 1971 doesn’t fit the AGW cult criteria.

Eight of  the months  started the trend in the 1600s. One in the 1700s.

So much for CO2 as the cause of “unprecedented warming”. The warming was for the most part very precedented.

Antarctic Sea Ice Update Oct 28, 2013

Antarctic Sea Ice Extent data has been unavailable for a few days. I emailed NSIDC and today they replied and said:

“Occasional short-term delays and data outages do occur and are usually resolved in a few days. We are currently experiencing such a short-term delay and we will get the issue resolved as quickly as possible.”

Commenter Gary also posted a link to this page that says:

“October 25, 2013: Daily updates to the graph and image are temporarily suspended due to technical difficulties with the data provider.”

HADCET – Top 18 Year Warming Trends By Month

Yesterday I did post about HADCET data by month showing how some of the months have a 350 year flat trend.

Today I thought I would look at the top 18 year warming trends at anytime in the 350 year history of HADCET. Why 18 years? Well, 1980 to 1998 was 18 years.

You might expect them all to be around 1980 to 1998 wouldn’t you? Well, if believe in global warming you might. But if you haven’t been taken in, you might not.

Only one recent month made it in the top. February 1983 to 2000. 2.53C per decade. Helped by the 5th coldest February in 1986 and the 3rd warmest February in 1998. That was an 8C rise.

But the next closest was January 1959 to 1976.  And five of the trends start in the 1600s! One in the 1700s. And four in the 1800s.

There is nothing unusual about the warm in the 1980s to 1990s.

HADCET – How Far Can You Go Back? June 1663 to June 2013 has a flat trend

Filed under: Cold Kills,HADCET — sunshinehours1 @ 7:32 AM
Tags: ,

I was looking at the HADCET data by month out of curiousity and I noticed that the month of June had a pretty flat trend for a long, long time.

So I thought to myself, how far can I go back with HADCET and get a flat or just slightly flat trend for individual months?

The graph below (click for full size) has a graph for each month. The months are grouped by season. And the data for each month is the the furthest back you can go with a trend of 0C/decade or lower.

The grand champion is June. The trend is 0C/decade from 1663 to 2013.

Wow.  Not much of a “Global Warming Signal” in a 350 year flat trend is there?

2nd longest is February with 0C/Decade trend from 1846 to 2013.

3rd longest is December with a -0.003C/Decade trend from 1907 to 2012.

4th is July from 1981. 5th is March from 1986. 6th and 7th is January and August from 1987.  May from 1988. October and November from 1994, September from 1995, And April from 2001,

I always wonder why CO2 is such a selective month.

Antarctic Sea Ice Area 85,200 sq km short of an all time record

Filed under: Antarctic Sea Ice — sunshinehours1 @ 5:00 PM
Tags: ,

Antarctic Sea Ice Area came within 85,200 sq km short of an all time record.   Sea Ice Area reached 16.14718 million sq km on day 282. This was the 7th highest of all time.

I normally do Sea Ice Extent, but Cryosphere uses Sea Ice Area.

Sea Ice Area had lagged Extent for most of the peak, but suddenly advanced after the normal maximum was reached. The maximum for 2013 was reached on day 282 which is 19 days later than the 2007 record.

2007 holds the record for most Sea Ice Area at 16.23238 million sq km.

Northern Hemisphere Winter Doom By Latitude Band

Filed under: Cold Kills,HADCRUT4 — sunshinehours1 @ 11:34 AM
Tags: , ,

Winter temperatures in the Northern Hemisphere are dropping as much as 2.5C / decade over the last 7 years.

Yesterday my post was a look at the northern hemisphere by month over the last 7 years.

Today I am looking at the same time frame, but I am using the gridded HADCRUT4 data for Dec/Jan/Feb only. You will have to click on the image to get the full effect.

There are 7 latitude bands with yellow highlighting. The trend in those is from -.44C/decade to -2.49C/decade. And note the green 0 line. 0 is the 1961-1990 average, Anywhere the graph or trend crosses the green line it is colder than the 1961-1990 average. It was pretty cold in the 60s and 70s.

I wish I didn’t live in the 50th parallel.
