An update to my earlier post on all the cold weather being experienced around the world: it seems the cooling recorded this year exceeds all the climate warming measured for the past 100 years. Total cooling this year ranges from 0.6C to 0.75C: all in one year, the fastest temperature change ever recorded and it was cooling.
As noted by commentators on the original post:
Its just a hypothesis, as this one year of data are not a trend. But it is a hypothesis that does fit all the facts, historical trends and present observations. And it does so without caveats, proscribed constants as explanatory variables or any consensus on what politically approved activities should and should not be counted as relevant.
Who knows, maybe it will even cause us to pause and re-consider just what we know about:
- sunpost activity and if it sufficient for future climate forecasting
- the full influence of the oceans and land use changes both on climate directly and on the carbon cycle
As a minimum, it would suggest the science is still far from settled and certainly remains insufficient for the type of social engineering AGW advocates would seek to justify through its co-optation .
