Greatest two-year global cooling event in 100 years – Media ignores it

“We Just Had Two Years Of Record-Breaking Global Cooling,” says this article in Investor’s Business Daily. “NASA data show that global temperatures dropped sharply over the past two years.”

“Writing in Real Clear Markets, Aaron Brown looked at the official NASA global temperature data and noticed something surprising,” says IBD. From February 2016 to February 2018, “global average temperatures dropped by 0.56 degrees Celsius.” That, he notes, is the biggest two-year drop in the past century.”

Wouldn’t you consider this to be newsworthy?

Apparently it wasn’t.

“In the three weeks following the Real Clear Markets story, no other news outlet picked up on it,” IBD continues. “They did, however, find time to report on such things as tourism’s impact on climate change, how global warming will generate more hurricanes this year, and threaten fish habitats, and make islands uninhabitable. They wrote about a UN official saying that “our window of time for addressing climate change is closing very quickly.”

Meanwhile, opposing views remain hidden.

  1. I just read this elsewhere. No surprise. Notice too that there have been crop failures due to cold weather in recent years. Monoculture crop failures lead to massive failures. Personally, I choose to focus on more cold hard crops for my own nutrition: peas, various dry beans and lots of brassica crops.

  2. In Met classes in the early 80s we were told to expect a few cycles of wildly variable temperatures ending with a plunge into the next glaciation phase. If history repeats, that will be ~80,000 years long.
    Most people call 50 years a long time bcos it is, relative to their life-span. Earth’s climate cycles are ~ 60, 200, 400 or 1000 years long and we’re obviously transitioning into one of these.

  3. And the temperature drop could be even worse in reality.

    Data from NASA, NOAA and RSS data all have an “adjustment” added to the temperature correlating it to the CO2 levels.

    As for the missing press coverage, they know what they are doing.

    • As for the missing press coverage, they know what they are doing.

      Exactly right, Gummans. The drought promulgated by Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown as the inevitable result of human fossil fuel use had a sharp reduction in northern California over the weekend, going from a 2018-19 water year total of just 0,7 inches precipitation (1.78 cm) to 5.1 inches (12.95 cm).

      In one weekend.

      The media whores are quite adept at specifically hailing certain phenomenon as influenced by mankind, but will refrain from the same when those phenomenon resolve (or are the opposite of perceived scientific climatological “correctness”.) Unfortunately, far too many people have fingers in their ears and hands over their eyes, unwilling to use critical thinking to question the dogma being fed to them.

    At the beginning every GSM period like now, it starts with the abrupt end of the previous 70 to 90 year Solar warm period. It takes ten years for the effects of that cooling to be logged in the fossil records, of for example European freshwater shell fish as reported by Swiss researchers, their findings investigating the LALIA found that the climate changed in that ten year period to Cold, Wet and very windy. I would suggest that at least in Western Europe that is exactly what we have, and will continue to experience, for the next 20 years and possibly longer until the end of SC27 and the rise to Max during SC28 and a more normal energy output solar cycle.
    .5 C drop, in two years, yet the cooling from this Modern Grand Solar Minimum has only just got under way.
    1.5C drop and a Sea level drop of 1 M by the end of SC26 17 years from now?
    Every named GSM LALIA, Oort, Wolf, Dalton and the first pair of cycles in Spoorer, and Maunder have followed the same climate path.

  5. This after an enormous el Nino spike?

    Rapid return toward the mean was expected after the spike.

    If it goes on another two years, that WOULD be big news.

    • There was no rapid return to the mean following the 1998 El-Niño event because the mean jumped a bit. Despite the 2016 event the temperatures are the same as 2002 according to UAH and that is interesting and verifies the “pause”.

      But you are dead right – if the temperatures continue to drop below the 21st century mean back to the 20th century levels then it will be nigh impossible to justify climate alarmism.

    • It’s a good point Rhys, and under a normal warm period solar event, for example from 1945 to 2008, including SC20 you would normally be correct in a return to “mean”.

      However, we are not in a normal energy cycle sequence of a Solar Warm Period, Just the opposite the Sun is in a GSM sequence of two cycles, the first active Trefoil orbit cycle is completing during 2019, and a very short cycle it is to, the following cycle SC25 is a recovery cycle while the Sun internal energy cycle recovers to recommence the more normal sunspot cycle.
      SC25 based on the other two cycle GSMs, LALIA, Oort, Wolf and Dalton will be of the same levels of energy output as SC24. A recent comparison will be the Dalton GSM SC5 and SC6, a GSM which created the snowy Christmas card, and the hardships faced by the winter poor of a Victorian Dickins England.

  6. Of course the MSM ignored it.
    They gave up journalism long ago in favor of globalism, collectivism, universal autocratic rule for ” the common good . ”
    The MSM is now the propagandist enabler of Communism.
    Regardless that the word has not been politically correct since the 50’s, they are still the apologists and purveyors of


  7. The United States got rid of communism all over the world but let it into their schools, government, media and hollywood. Now we have to listen to mind numb robots go on about globul warming while we freeze our arses off!

  8. They’re saying that AGW is causing the cooling. They’ve forgotten that in the past they said kids wouldn’t know what snow was. Basically, they make it up as they go along. If you buy into this, you’re an idiot. Or you have the attention span of a goldfish!

  9. I know. They still say it was not quite, however the second warmest two years in the history of the planet too. The colder it is the more they talk about global warming. It was simultaneously the coldest Thsnksgiving in the Northeast and snowing in the mountains of the Sierra, certainly and the mountains south of Los Angeles. Not an easy feat with record warmth, however they pretend we aren’t sophisticated enough to understand it.

  10. Engineers like data – and don’t rely on anecdotes and substitutions of fact to promulgate the story their main funding sources want. CBC (radio, TV, etc.) is a good example – they receive over 1 billion in annual funding here in Canada. The don’t run very many columns or shows without an overt connection to global warming and climate change.

    My friend challenged one recent story and did an excellent job of pointing out their flaws.

    He also has a presentation showing examples of facts using data get substituted and exaggerated to spin the MSM’s yarn of lies.

  11. The “doomsday” projections push the date of total destruction to the turn of the century. That is, eighty two years from now. This is assuming technology is absolutely static in that time and no cures or preparation takes place. Unfortunately, none of us will be around to see the “two minute warning”.

  12. Just in case you missed the Global Warming, (sorry)…Climate Change, (sorry) Global Mitigation Action Plan (I knew I would get it right eventually), here is the link.
    So you don’t have to read it, let me condense the thesis work…we are not only going to fry from sunburns, die of thirst and starve…but now we will be glad of all this news as we are all going to be economically deprived.

  13. I.Q. test: which is heavier?
    Air (oxygen and nitrogen with a molecular mass of 29
    Co2 (1 carbon and 2 oxygen) with a molecular mass of 45, over 60% heavier than air.

    • I can’t help think this is a trick question, but chemistry indicates that CO2 is more dense than air. On earth, CO2 is sometimes released from below ground where is settles in low elevation areas in times of low wind. This results in a cascading accumulation of animal corpses looking at eating the visible feast. Once in the O2 displaced zone, one lung full of high CO2 concentrated air, they die too.
      In the atmosphere, CO2 is a trace gas, constituting about 93% of the 0.1% trace gases. Atmospheric mixing keeps the CO2 aloft along with all other more dense gas. Mixing and diffusion of CO2 is fairly easy as it happens in our homes, or else, if you slept in the basement on the floor, you would wake up dead!
      P.S. You can’t wake up dead! (Scary Movie 3 reference I could not resist)

  14. That’s to be expected with very low solar activity, more cosmic rays and increased volcanic activity. The new ice age cycle and climatic cooling is clearly on track.
