Continental Cooling

The media may be yelling about global warming, but were you aware that the land itself, the land we’re actually living on, is cooling?

Take a look at this land-only map from NOAA (below) for the month of February 2018.

First, you need to disregard the gray areas, because NOAA says they represent “missing data,” of which there is a lot on this map. The data appears to be “missing” for almost all of Canada, Greenland, Brazil, Africa and Antarctica.

Be that as it may, when you look at all of the blue areas you can clearly see that many entire countries were colder than normal during the month of February. Those countries include Spain, France, Portugal, Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Belgium, Luxembourg, Estonia, Latvia, Belarus, Switzerland, Morocco, Poland, Turkmenistan, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom.

Meanwhile, temperatures in parts of the United States and Canada, along with much of Russia and China, ran as much as five degrees colder than normal during February.

Now look at NOAA’s blended map (below), showing both ocean and land temperatures for the same time period.

Here, even though the data was somehow “missing”when NOAA compiled the previous map, you can see that temperatures across a huge portion of Canada ran far below normal – as much as five degrees below normal – during the month of February, as was the case in Colombia, Venezuela, Mauritania, Senegal, Romania, the Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Thailand, Laos, Malaysia, Burma, Indonesia, and a good portion of Algeria.

You will also see, even though the land-only map said the data was missing for almost all of Africa, that temperatures across that huge continent miraculously became slightly warmer than normal. Same in Brazil.

I have no idea why NOAA’s maps show such disparities, but my point here is that – if I’m reading these maps correctly – we’ve got some continental cooling going on.

We’re talking about the areas where much of the world’s food supplies are grown. We’re talking about the bread baskets of the world.

Continental cooling is not something to be desired.

  1. I’ve lived in Virginia for 36 years. I remember when I moved to America, from Germany. Summers here, especially in July and August, were brutal.

    Over the years, temperatures have gone down and clouds have come in. Not necessarily more rain or snow, just more clouds.

    Now, I feel like I’m at home again. The weather here is very much like Germany. To give you an understanding of what that means, Germany’s weather is most often compared to the weather of New York. Imagine cold weather patterns moving a few hundred miles to the south. That’s what we’ve been experiencing in Virginia.

    They show the “average” temperature of Virginia as being much higher than normal on these maps. I can assure you, the temperature now isn’t even close to what it was when I moved here. As a matter of fact, I believe the overall trend has us running many degrees colder than average, as much as 10 to 20° on many days!

    Just look at next week. Going into April, nighttime temperatures will be in the 30s and 40s, and the daytime temperatures will be in the 40s and 50s!

    Something tells me we are either not going to have a spring this year, or it’s going to be very short.

    • I spent a couple of years as a kid in Germany and all I remember was over-cast, cloudy, grey skies. I figured that was why the Germans were so smart……….there was nothing else to do but stay in doors, read, and invent things.

      The bigger city, Frankfurt, near the smaller town where I lived, had great indoor, heated swimming pools. I spent a lot of time there, but I also remember always wearing a sweater or jacket all the time. I think I visited an outside pool only once and remember never going into the water. The German kids did, but they didn’t seem to freeze like I did.

      I live in Florida now and STILL wear a jacket all the time since about October of last year.

  2. The present Central England Temperature anomaly for 2018 is presently at 0.00, and this is in comparison to the reference period 1961-1990.

    Why do NOAA etc use the comparison period 1981-2010 (as above) when as the Hadcet data states:

    Note that anomalies (and normals) quoted here are w.r.t. the period 1961-1990. This is the current standard period
    of reference for climatological data as recommended by the WMO (World Met. Organisation).

    • Because they chop out the inconvenient cooling period for SC20, In much the same way the US Academia chops out the Medieval Warm Period as regional. Got to shape that lying hockey stick graph somehow, otherwise the elector’s taxes AGW grant slush fund dry’s up.
      Just think just how much money this army of researchers has wasted barking up the wrong lone some pine, when the root cause spend half the 24 hrs days above them, out of sight and out of mind.
      To paraphrase Clinton: It’s the Sun stupid! Our UV variable star and not some trace gaseous plant food which causes warming and then cooling in a cyclic manner.

  3. “I have no idea why NOAA’s maps show such disparities”

    Honestly? You know perfectly well why NOAA’s maps show disparities once blended. The algorithms are designed to show maximum warming even where no warming was evidential—including areas that show cooler-than-normal monthly anomalies somehow becoming warmer-than-normal. The infill algorithms are a joke, as are most of the climate and sea level rise (SLR) data being pushed by them.

  4. There is another reason why the Land areas are cooling: Meridional Jet streams.
    The air currents are pushing warmish, wet air directly into the high latitudes; into the Grey areas on NOAAs map – out of sight out of the Warmists minds, on the return leg into the continental land masses super cooled polar air.
    During a Normal solar warm period like 1945 to 2008 the Jet stream for much of the solar cycle are very lateral West to East in direction- ranging from 40 degree to 60 degrees. Except for the 10 to 12 yearly period during solar minimum on the declining 3 year period and the initial start of the rise to Solar Max, for example the periods 1976-1980, 1988-1991, 1998-2002 and 2009-2011.
    The exceptions are SC20 and SC24 both are significantly reduced solar energy output cycles due to their AMP affected Trefoil orbits around the Solar System BarryCentre.
    However, in all cases of solar minimum and of all Grand Solar Minimums, is the 16% or more reduction in EUV levels in solar output and Meridional Jet stream become the norm in both hemispheres which reaches to a polar 75 degrees and to 10 degrees, sometimes colliding with the equatorial jet stream each side of the equator.
    NOAA is only interested in the Atlantic equatorial flow, as it brings the US weather in its track, it doesn’t want to know or publish that a significant number of September- November Tropical storms end up dumping their rain fall as snow over Greenland.

    • JimBob you do seem to know more about this/these subjects then most others !

      I educate myself also regarding Meteorology and somewhat Climate Science from Sunny Southern California since basically El Nino 1977/78 when huge swells and pooring rains were pounding the Southland the entire Winter (Before El Nino 1982/83 when/while Malibu and other beaches were being washed out to sea by Monster Swells pounded the coast accompanied by torrential down poors (What a Winter that year, few if any have come close to 82/83 !))

      Keep your eyes on the Arctic Sea ice which has recovered substantially since the end of the Warming Cycle 1999 thru 2015 (Sea/Ocean Warming, not Land Warming because that occurred from basically 1980 thru 1998, Land & Air first, then Sea to finish it) !

      Once the Arctic starts closing up, then the real Cooling starts !!

      Pray for Global Warming, without it we are lying dead in the current, and that is when bad things begin to happen…

      • Thanks Rick, the information is out there, all you have to do is look for it.
        I stated with Geoff Sharps site:
        and this paper:
        One thing I look at yesterday was the evidence for Sudden Atmospheric Warming like the one we are coming to the end of in Europe this month. The key evidence is the normal air flow being revered to an easterly during December to March:
        1150, 1281, 1434, 1515, 1564, 1620, 1683, 1709, 1715, 1739, 1767, 1788, 1793, 1814, 1903, 1947, 1963, 1976 (hot), 1987, 2010, 2018.
        There are others:
        The dates up to 1814 are frost fairs. SAW events only happen during low period of EUV.

  5. Jimbob you obviously seem to agree with Landsheidt! good work. Yep the AMP solar modulation explains alot. In physics cycles cant run them selves they need a driving force. i.e. Ocean circulation is driven as well at atmospheric circulation. ..driving forces include but not limited to, solar output, coreolis force and orbits of the gas giant planets etc.

  6. a few hot days in SE aus this summer but damned dry still;-(
    mild days and cooling nights starting
    but thats helping mice breed up;-( we could be in plague times soon which really ruins farming as well as homes possesions and health.
    unless we get decent rains soon with some cold nights to help kill the wretches its looking grim.
    anything planted seeds wise will be lost, theyre even eating raw potatos and the very few tomatos that ive produced this yr;-(

  7. They finally had it right showing the cold in the Rockies, across Canada and the warmth in the Eastern US in February. But I wonder why Antarctica and the Arctic are missing here. Since we know that NOAA is often warm biased on their charts, you wonder if many areas in the Arctic and Antarctica were colder than normal, which NOAA shows as missing?

  8. Those charts are always exaggerated and highly warm biased anyways. Don”t believe anything NOAA shows with their charts. They are known to paint areas that are below normal as above normal. They showed a similar standard deviation chart of this kind in 2003 March and wide areas up North in the US were between 1.5 to 3 F below normal. That area was depicted by NOAA as above normal by half a degree F. Some places further south were above normal that month so they averaged out the whole area and painted the +.5 F square in red to include the North, where it was actually cold there in the means. These NOAA charts are not accurate!
