How Ya Likin' Your Global Warming?

January 2008 featured the most snow cover in the Northern Hemisphere in since the previous anomalous year of 1984.

I was actually looking for data on global temperatures the past three months. I didn't find it, so perhaps it's not yet fully compiled and vetted.

It sure seems like the record chill of the past year is continuing.

January 2008 has been an exceptional month for winter weather, not only in North America but across the globe, according to numerous indicators.

We've had anecdotal evidence of odd weather in the form of wire reports from China, Iraq, and Saudi Arabia, and record-setting cold and snow have been felt with intensity not seen for 30 to 100 years, depending on the region.

We also have reports of significant negative anomalies in the global satellite data for the lower troposphere. There has been a global drop in temperature of 0.63º Centigrade in the past 12 months. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA} has announced that January 2008 was below twentieth century temperature averages.

Arctic sea ice has quickly recovered from the record low extent of summer 2007. Although a massive La Niña weather pattern might be the driver behind all of this, the changing weather may also be a harbinger of a more long-term phase shift, according to veteran forecaster Joe Bastardi.


Said Bastardi, "The maturation of the La Niña to its classic major cold look, both in the equatorial Pacific waters and the amazing amount of the Northern Hemisphere troposphere that is covered by colder-than-normal temperatures, is not only a major driving force in the everyday weather picture of Earth, but is a sign that in the end, it is nature, not man, that will have its way with the weather.

"It is straight out of the book of climate," Bastardi adds. "The pattern is so much like the 1949-1950 La Niña, which was signaling the start of the reversal of the warming of the Earth's climate in the 1930s, '40s, and early '50s. Only someone choosing to ignore it, or not wanting to see it, would not be cognizant of it."

If there are articles out there hyping a springing-back of temperatures back up above average, or even at the average, a quick search didn't find them.

And you know, of course, how much the MSM likes to trumpet one or three month temperature changes if they're in the right direction.

Let me give you my own report on global warming in the northeastern United States: It's cold and miserable, and it has been cold and miserable for as long as I can remember. At some point spring is supposed to come, right?

I'm beginning to wish global warming were in fact true.

Maine Breaks Record For Snowfall: Yes, I realize this is just anecdotal and a local phenomenon, except it's not just anecdotal and local, it seems to be happening everywhere (or at least the northern hemisphere).

Furthermore, the Warmistas have never been shy about championing a one-off weather event as proving general full-earth long-term global warming. Turnabout is fair play.

Look at all that warmth piled up beside the roads!

Yes yes, I know, it's not global warming, it's "climate change," and now global warming can mean global cooling too.

Basically, any time the temperature is more that .1 degree away from average, in either direction, it's global warming/global cooling/global nearly averaging.
