Delingpole: Earth in ‘Greatest Two-Year Cooling Event in a Century’ Shock

26 Apr 2018 – Our planet has just experienced the most extreme two-year cooling event in a century. But where have you seen this reported anywhere in the mainstream media?

You haven’t, even though the figures are pretty spectacular. As Aaron Brown reports here at Real Clear Markets:

From February 2016 to February 2018 (the latest month available) global average temperatures dropped 0.56°C. You have to go back to 1982-84 for the next biggest two-year drop, 0.47°C—also during the global warming era.

To put this temperature drop in context, consider that this is enough to offset by more than half the entirety of the global warming the planet has experienced since the end of the 19th century.

Since the end of the Little Ice Age in the 1880s, the planet has warmed by about 0.8 degrees C. You might think that was not a particularly drastic rate of warming to worry about. You might also note that such a rate of warming is well precedented in periods throughout history, such as during the Minoan, Roman and Medieval warming periods. Nonetheless this 0.8 degrees C rise – 0.9 degrees C, at a push – is the terrible climatic event the alarmist establishment has been assuring these last few decades is the worst thing ever and something that should worry us awfully.

….. As we know from long experience, if it had been the other way round – if the planet had warmed by 0.56 degrees C rather than cooled, the media would have been all over it.

My point is that statistical cooling outliers garner no media attention. The global average temperature numbers come out monthly. If they show a new hottest year on record, that’s a big story. If they show a big increase over the previous month, or the same month in the previous year, that’s a story. If they represent a sequence of warming months or years, that’s a story. When they show cooling of any sort—and there have been more cooling months than warming months since anthropogenic warming began—there’s no story.

……Which is why, of course, it is unlikely to get much attention from a scientific establishment and a complicit media that much prefers to ramp up the global warming scare – even when the evidence doesn’t support it.

  1. I have a hunch the official-source AGW data-manipulators will tell us something like “…these were 2 of the hottest years ever recorded. Delingpole is just talking about weather, not climate.”

    Since the end of the Gleissberg cool period 1890 to 1945. But calculate the cooling as well from SC20 1965 to 1980
    Since the end of the Little Ice Age in the 1880s, the planet has warmed by about 0.8 degrees C.
    The Dalton GSM 1790 to 1820 which was the last GSM in the LIA period of 1158 to 1820. The LIA covered the Wolf, Spoorer, Maunder and Dalton periods. During all four GSMs each minimum was accompanied by several major volcanic eruptions, usually lagging the first Trefoil orbit of the SUN by multi year period.
    We have already seen the first major eruption in the Modern GSM with the recent Icelandic eruption, with at least one T6 submerged eruption in the Southern Pacifica. A significant number of land based volcanos have commenced or are in the process of erupting worldwide.
    The reason for the increase in volcanic activity is the gravitational fluctuations from the abrupt orbital changes caused by the trefoil orbit of the Sun around the Solar System BarryCentre during a AMP affected Grand Solar Minimum cycle such as SC24 and SC5 & SC6 during Dalton.

  3. Delingpoles excellent webpage EUreferendum was one of the first places i came across with detailed work on IPCC and the warmist con
    he did a superb few items on Pachauri and his less than publicly clear links to TATA and their supposed green side, and the links from there to NZ and the related people who worked in the NZweather depts- massively in depth info.
    the point made above is the same one we all do as well
    but even putting the new data in an online warmist inclined forum is likely to get you turfed..
    im persona non grata at a few;-)

  4. Extremely interesting. Thank you.

    ” it is unlikely to get much attention from a scientific establishment and a complicit media that much prefers to ramp up the global warming scare – even when the evidence doesn’t support it.”

    It’s worthwhile to remember that the media isn’t being complicit to the scientific establishment– rather that both are being complicit to a political agenda.

  5. The 0.56C drop is because of two factors. 1) Grand solar minimum cosmic ray flux has generated more cloud cover over the last 2 years. There’s reporting stations showing an 13 to 19% increase in cosmic rays from California to New England. 2) It is a natural drop off from a monster El Niño, the three monster El Niños most of us would remember is 1982, 1998, and 2016. After these El Niños there is a massive drop to La Niña conditions where we were at. Both are natural occurrences and not because of man. There will be a slight warming this year, early signs point to a modoki El Niño this fall and winter.

  6. We are constantly told in Australia that each year, for the past few years, has been the hottest on record, and the sheeple all believe it even though they haven’t lived it!!!

    • hi Tina, yeah being the home of the crook cook and his bullshit 97% concensus with ourwarped pollies on the greentinged side regardless of party affiliation too often..
      and bleeding heart aunty abc..
      makes fighting a task n then some
      but we persist:-)
      todays cretinous complaint that burning waste to generate power n heat was bad was a ripper
      the green one spouting that assumed…oh so wrongly that we would burn food n other organic waste
      whereas we’d be burning plastic n nonrecyclables- hell we already burn tyres and they arent aware we do;-)

  7. Paying attention to the 180 degree change of attitude with North Korea? Notice how even China is being very, very nice to us?

    It isn’t just TRUMP. It’s Starvation.

    This site, here, opened my mind to consider other aspect of Climate/Weather. Looking into other YouTube/Blog sites, has led me to the conclusion that we are COOLING, rapidly.

    Well, North Korea sees this. They have had nothing but FREEZING temperatures for about 6 months. Same with Japan. Same with the growing regions of China.

    They know, in 2-3 years, there will be no food. South America is going into drought. Australia is too small to export food. One more degree colder and Canada is off-line for wheat. Russia is going to freeze, next year, worse than “Beast from the East, #1, #2 and #3” of this year….. What’s left?

    There is only ONE country that can grow the wheat/corn/soy beans/pigs that China/North Korea are going to need to stop horrific starvation.


    • While the USA beats everyone else by about a factor of 3 or 4, there are still lots of other food exporting countries. The curious one is that the Netherlands is #2:

      Rank Country Value of Food Exports (US Dollars)
      1 United States $149,122,000,000.00
      2 Netherlands $92,845,387,781.00

      Brazil is a major exporter of soybeans. Note this is in dollars so the Netherlands is exporting expensive things in smaller volumes while Brazil is exporting lots of tons of cheap grains and soy. Note that Australia is also a large wheat exporter. #4 at about 10% of global.

      You might want to do a fact check before you make bald assertions.

      Rank Exporter 2016 Wheat Exports % World Total
      1. United States US$5.4 billion 14.8%
      2. Canada $4.5 billion 12.4%
      3. Russia $4.2 billion 11.6%
      4. Australia $3.6 billion 9.9%
      5. France $3.4 billion 9.3%
      6. Ukraine $2.6 billion 7.2%
      7. Germany $1.9 billion 5.3%
      8. Argentina $1.9 billion 5.1%

    • The point you are missing is that American and Canadian grain growing regions are on high plateau, well above sea level, and well in the late spring frost zones so there is no guarantee that the US can meet the demand.
      The example is the recent series of NA Arctic cold plunges which have penetrated to the South West Gulf coast of Texas. Planting/sowing has yet to start in the Mid-west.
      Global cooling events not only affect high latitudes, which is to be expected but at High altitudes as the warm bubble of temperate air we depend on for our climate.
      One feature of solar minimum between cycles and GSMs are Sudden Atmospheric Warming (SAW) events these increase significantly during winter (Cold) and early Spring (Warm to Hot) these event introduce regional drought, Two examples in the UK 62/63 a complete winter cold event from November to March, the second during the Spring and early Summer of 1976.
      These events are linking to long lasting large Coronial Holes orbiting the Sun every 28 days, which is its normal rotation time. It also matches the recent monthly waxing and waning of the so called beast from the East which affected the UK at end of winter and the start of the late UK spring.

    • Both Global Warming and Global Cooling can be proved as they are part of the same Solar cycle, whether it is the short 172 solar cycle of a GSM, a Gleissberg period of around 70 years and the finishing warm period of 70 years, or the long cycle of a 1500 year solar disturbed period which occurs twice during the 46K orbital cycle of the Jovian Gas giants around our UV variable star.
      CO2 is a trace gas normally manufactured during the breathing cycle of all life on the planet as oxygen and sugars are burnt to provide energy. Without it no carbon based life can exist.
      Water vapour is the primary and only GHG that matters, taxes on CO2 are designed to make money for the few, with Gore being one of them hence the propagander fraud being practised.

  8. This and a lot worse is what happens when the North Atlantic Gulf Stream goes belly up. Professor of Hydrodynamics at the Frescati Institute in Italy, Gianluigi Zangari said that as of July 2010 the Gulf Stream is DEAD ! Did anyone get the message ? Well as the next Ice Age starts to kill off a good percentage of the human species I think a few individuals dotted about might start to get the message.

    • I remember hearing “vague” comments about this during the BP oil spill.

      I decided to do some research on the names you provided and found this link discussing this topic. Very interesting.

      Also, at the time of this spill, I was blown away with the INCREDIBLE volume of oil coming out of this ONE drilling rig. This was (and is) a huge amount of oil and I wondered at the time what was going to become of this oil field………..since then? Silence.

      It was like 250,000 barrels PER DAY and it kept coming and coming and coming. Why aren’t we pumping this out (it needed NO pumping)? Why aren’t we drilling all over this field?

      I have a strong feeling the world is LOADED with oil. A huge vast amounts but it’s restricted by the powers that be.

      Oil at $1/barrel hurts the big people.

    • Hi Neil, this is not true; the Gulf Stream is still flowing past the British Isles. Otherwise, at latitude of 55 degrees, the same as Labrador, the UK would have many feet of snow on it and permafrost.
      Hasn’t happen yet, but it will do once the major glacial advance starts in 1000 to 2000 years from now.

      • It would not require a major glacial advance to render large parts of the Northern Hemisphere useless for food production; it would only require a shortening of the growing season that would stifle, or eventually prevent agriculture. The consequences for the Northern Hemisphere could be drastic, well in advance of a major glaciation.

    Solar Activity Flatlines: Weakest solar cycle in 200 years
    Anthony Watts / 18 hours ago April 28, 2018
    By Frank Bosse and Prof. Fritz Vahrenholt, No Tricks Zone
    In March our supplier of energy was more inactive than in the previous months. The sunspot number was only 2,5, which is only 8% of what is normal for this month into the average cycle (month 112).Only solar cycles 5 and 6 were weaker.
    A sunspot was detected only on 6 of 31 days.
    An observation made on April 10, 2018, allowed us to say that at approximately 30° southern heliospheric latitude the SDO solar research satellite saw a tiny spot (it was too small to be officially counted as a sunspot) that certainly belonged to the next approaching solar cycle no. 25.

    Sunspots are magnetic phenomena. The thermally conveyed plasma at the sun’s outer layer generates electric currents. Each of these currents produces a magnetic field. Depending on the direction of the current, the magnetic field is polarized and changes on the sun with each change of cycle.
    The SDO instrument is able to determine the polarity of the magnetic field for each sunspot, and provided this image:

    Is that the end of cycle 24, some 20 months before the expected month no. 132?

    Certainly not. And solar cycle 25 has yet to begin as more spots with the same SC 24 signature are still in the pipeline. Moreover solar cycle 24 could resemble the end of solar cycle 5, see Figure 1. In the months during a minimum, spots can appear that belong to the next cycle, as there is a transition phase where spots of both cycles appear.

    The solar minimum has started

    It can still take quite some time before the next cycle makes its debut. Whether the current solar cycle turns out to be both an especially weak one and a short one is still unknown. Historically weak solar cycles have lasted longer than strong ones, It is difficult to say if solar cycle 24 will be an exception. We’ll keep you up-to-date!
    Image in link:
    Next is a comparison of the deviation from the mean (112 months into the cycle) of all the solar cycles recorded thus far since the 18th century:
    Figure 3: Comparison of the previous 24 solar cycles recorded since the 18th century. The current solar cycle no. 24 is the weakest in almost 200 years. Only two other cycles were weaker.

    For estimating the strength of the upcoming cycle 25, we regularly cast a look at the sun’s polar fields. The current data are suggesting that solar cycle 25 will be similar to the current solar cycle 24. Thus we have to anticipate that the solar activity will not be returning to normal levels until at least 2031 – the year solar cycle 25 should end.

    The good news is that it is highly improbable the sun will enter a Grand Minimum, such as the one that occurred from 1645 – 1715, the period known as the Little Ice Age.

    Well this is good news in part; the problem I have is they are comparing SC24 with SC5 and comparing apples and pears.
    The modern SDO count counts every fragment, yet if you compare the spot counts with what could be seen with the optics from the Dalton period 1790 – 1820 as compared to the optics used by NASA the spot counts for SC24 are below those for SC5.
    Spot Fragments must have been there during SC5 and SC6 they just could not see them to count them!
    The other point is that the solar community and Anthony Watts know a GSM has been predicted for this pair of cycles, and a lot of reputations are riding on it not happening, the problem is it has already started, as have the SAW events which accompany every Solar minimum period, and during a GSMs complete cycle.

  10. This chart is very usefull to discuss the stages of the solar output

    It starts with SC1 in 1761 one of the last cycles of the 18th centry Gleissberg period between Maunder and Dalton from 1703 to 1761
    The pair of Cycles 3 and 4 .produced solar output similar to SC22 and SC23
    The Dalton GSM main cycles are 5 and 6
    The modern Gliessberg period is clearly shown from SC12 to SC16
    As is the Mondern warm period from SC17 to SC19 and SC21 to SC23
    Is there any wonder that with the amount of energy the Sun can out put that we have experienced a warm period between 1945 and 2008.
    The other point the the abrupt change in climate from the warm into the cold with every GSM causing cycle SC5, Sc20 and SC24.
    This matches what history teaches the abrupt change from the Warm Period into a GSM and the cold, wet and windy weather it brings.
    A more complete chart is this one:
