Ireland temperatures going in one direction – Down


“We have just had the coldest summer here in over 50 years following the coldest winter in over 100 years”

Email from a reader in Dublin

Hi Robert,

I follow your website with great interest as the weather here in Ireland has been getting colder over the last four years or so. I have checked and plotted the figures from the Met.ie ( Irish national weather service) website myself and annually or seasonally average temperatures are all going in one direction in this part of the World and that’s down.

We have just had the coldest summer here in over 50 years following the coldest winter in over 100 years. The last 3 winters have all been exceptionally cold with plenty of snow compared to the usual.

We are now facing into a winter which is widely expected to be another record breaker in terms of cold and snow, more than a coincidence I’d say.

I have never bought into the man made Global Warming argument and I believe as do most people I know that the earth’s climate has always been and always will be changing due to natural variances and cyclical events.

There is a huge amount of warmist propaganda being fed to the general population here and it starts as soon as you are old enough to go to school!

Hopefully as time goes on more people  will have the independence of mind to check the facts out for themselves and independent informative websites such as yours are a good way to do so.

Keep up the good work.

  1. Hi,

    Yes our weather here in Ireland has being getting colder, growing seasons shortening, more extreme weather events, more snow etc, however we must not jump to any conclusions. Our weather has being mainly influenced by fluctuations in the gulf stream caused mainly by la nina, el nino in turn caused by sunspot activity. I feel the suns activity will increase again over the next 11 years before decreasing again. I do foresee another extreme winter this year and possible into another cold summer. I think the real test will be winter 2012 and summer 2013 where i feel temperatures will begin to rise again. I.e. I don’t see an ice-age happening for at least 20 years or more!

    Note: Global warming and man made global climate change = BULLSHIT!!!

  2. I confirm the report from Robert as I live in Ireland for 18 years. I have first hand experience and I tell you that the signs are clear.
    Neighbors had palm trees in their garden and most of them died in the winter before last. The last remaining palm trees in our area died last winter.
    The cherry tree in our front garden had very small fruits this year. Too small that we left it for the birds.
    Some hedges took a long time to recover from the cold winter and you could see the frost damage for a long time.
    It’s all about the sun and the clouds.

  3. Hi,
    As with Ireland I feel that here in Scotland the temperature is also dropping.

    We had a period of warm weather through April giving the impression that it was going to transpire into a long hot summer yet, it was not to be. Weeks of cold nights and cool days were punctuated by a few days of warm summer sunshine here and there. Nothing to wright home about.

    A few weeks ago you posted a mailing from someone in SE Alaska saying that the berries hadn’t come to much or failed altogether. I have noticed that although some species of berries had come to fruition early and in abundance others have struggled. For example; we have a lot of wild bushes as well as shrubbery around the local area and for as long as I can remember June berries (ichycoos) have been in abundance from May through to July when they usually flower around July or August. They have just started to ripen within the past three weeks with a few flowers appearing over the past week. Has anyone else noticed this?

    It seems that those bushes exposed to the cool westerly to north westerly breeze have fared worse than those sheltered from it. It also seems that the aforementioned wind directions have been more prominent this year than the warmer prevailing south westerly’s. Has anyone else noticed this also?

    To be honest I doubt an ice age is imminent however; a combination of the North Atlantic Oscillation, a shifting Jet Stream, the influences of El Nino and La Nina, low solar activity as well as our present position within the solar system has culminated in this cooling episode. As did, a combination of the Pacific Oscillation, a shifting Jet Stream, the influences of El Nino and La Nina, High solar activity as well as our recent position within the solar system has culminated in the past warm period. The earth did become warmer over the past thirty five years, I do not deny this, yet I don’t believe in Anthropologic Global Warming. It was part of a natural cycle as is cooling periods.

    I also witnessed this. Then there were some fronts during the second week of April. Warmed back up a bit the 3rd week, and then … kaput.
