Harsh Winter Conditions Grip Northern Hemisphere As Globe Cools
There’s been a lot of cold all over the northern hemisphere this winter – much more than many of us expected. Europe has also joined in on the freeze-fest as the harsh winter spreads across the old continent and even into Africa.
One reason for this could be due to the rapidly falling global surface temperatures as recorded by satellite data. In January the global mean temperature anomaly dropped to +0.26°C, with the tropics (where most of the heat is found) posting a nippy -0.12°C anomaly, according to Dr. Roy Spencer.
Other cooling factors include the current La Nina and possibly the low solar activity playing a role. IceAgeNow here reported last July that solar activity was at its most rapid decline in 9300 years.
A lot of winter, snow and cold for a planet that is supposedly warming rapidly.
