“Coldest May On Record North Of 80N“
According to professional meteorologist and weather forecaster Joe Bastardi, the Arctic (80N) just experienced its coldest month of May in Danish Meteorological Institute (DMI) record books (dating back 65 years, to 1958).
Bastardi, via Twitter (@BigJoeBastardi), writes: “only one, perhaps two days were average…”
This is visualized on the zoomed-in DMI graph embedded below, which shows the 1958-2023 mean (blue line) and the daily mean temperature for 2023 (orange line):
“This despite climate activists showing absurd GFS warmth over the Arctic,” continues Bastardi.
“You can be darn sure if it was the warmest May on record, it would be making headlines.”
In turn, the cold May lead to ‘healthy’ Arctic sea ice advances:
Bastardi also points to May temperatures globally, and calls out apparent NOAA obfuscation; another example of not showing the whole story.
NOAA’s ”percentiles’ map for May 2023 is out, and, once again, actual temperatures expose how absurdly biased it is.
Below were the ACTUAL temperature anomalies for May — points out Bastardi:
And here is how NOAA shows it:
You would have no idea just how anomalously-cold the Arctic –for example– was looking at NOAA’s interpretation of the data.
Now, NOAA aren’t exactly lying here, they’re obfuscating — bending the data and statistics to fulfill their objective, or, more specifically, to fulfill the orders of their Matrix masters, who, at least to my mind, are seeking ‘world domination by terror’.
Depressingly, government agency obfuscation is nothing new. It has demonstrated time and time again. Yet the dutifully compliant among us (i.e. the masses) continue to lap it up: “Why would the government lie to us?” — the dumbest of comebacks.
Looking to past fudgings, February 2021 was a month of truly historic cold across large swathes of the planet.
However, that is NOT the impression you’d get if you all you had access to was NOAA’s absurd ‘percentiles’ map:
However, when circumventing NOAA’s befuddling and breaking down the data, it is revealed that the contiguous United States suffered its coldest February since 1989; the Southern Hemisphere posted its chilliest month of Feb since 2012; ALL of central and northern Asia froze; while large parts of Africa, Southern Asia, and South America also experienced colder-than-average months.
NOAA’s rarely cited ‘departures from average’ map gives a far better indication of the state of play in February 2021:
Compare the two maps for yourself, and note — they use the exact same data over the exact same time frame, yet give wildly differing impressions of the month.
Historic Greenland Snow/Ice Gains
Tremendous accumulations of snow are pounding the Greenland ice sheet in mid-June — record-breaking.
Yesterday, June 14, the glacier posted an astonishing 5 gigaton gain at a time of year when it would usually be shedding mass:
DMI weather books reveal that the ice sheet, even during its very best mid-June postings of the past, barely gained 2 gigatons. But here we are, now decades in to this CO2-induced ‘global warming catastrophe’, and the glacier is posting 5 gigaton gains:
This isn’t an anomaly, either.
For the fifth year out of the past seven, ice gains on the surface of Greenland have been above the 1981-2010 mean.
Warmer In The Past
“So many places have been warmer in the past and at pre-industrial levels of CO2,” writes Earth science professor-in-exile, Dr. Matthew M. Wielicki, who’s Twitter profile describes him as a ‘climate and cultural realist’.
“We should have no reasonable expectation of a measurable change in temperature from a decrease in anthropogenic GHG emissions,” he continues, citing the published study, ‘Continental-Scale Temperature Variability During The Past Two Millennia‘:
“In Asia and Australasia, reconstructed temperature was higher during 1971–2000 than any other 30-year period. In the Arctic, temperatures were warmest around AD 395, but the twentieth century exhibited the second warmest temperatures, with the 1941–1970 period warmer than 1971–2000.
“In South America, the AD 1971–2000 reconstructed temperature was similar to the record maximum in AD 1251–1280.
“In North America, the reconstructed temperature for the 1971–2000 interval does not include the warm decades since 1980, and therefore underestimates the actual temperature for that interval.
“In Europe, slightly higher reconstructed temperatures were registered in AD 741–770, and the interval from AD 21–80 was substantially warmer than 1971–2000.
“Antarctica was probably warmer than 1971–2000 for a time period as recent as AD 1671–1700, and the entire period from 141–1250 was warmer than 1971–2000.”
New Zharkova Interview
Professor Valentina Zharkova –one prominent scientists calling for the onset of a Grand Solar Minimum– recently gave an interview to the always entertaining, enlightening and straight-shooting David Mauriello of The Oppenheimer Ranch Project.
For those who didn’t catch it, below is that interview:
