A MUST READ: European climate, Alpine glaciers and Arctic ice in relation to North Atlantic SST record

A MUST READ: European climate, Alpine glaciers and Arctic ice in relation to North Atlantic SST record. Anthony Watts posts an “excellent essay” by Juraj Vanovcan that tells us that a dog bit a man. Apparently, “oceans drive the temperature of the atmosphere, not the other way around”! Now if only climate scientists knew this… Oh wait, they do.

All the usual claims are present: It’s all natural cycles, earlier warming periods were just like this one, cherry-picked examples are compared to the preferred cyclic pattern and match perfectly, pretending that a claimed correlation means that a causation has been found, etc. Anthony’s contribution is to pretend that “the New Scientist finally came to realize and publish on this week [that] the sun and the oceans play a bigger role than many give credit for.” Thank you Anthony for leading them to truth!

Unfortunately this information doesn’t have any relevance to the fact that AGW is overpowering natural climate variation.

  1. SOME QUICKIES…..

    As described the North Atlantic SST graph sounds (and looks) like the global temperature graph: “…with cold minimums reached in 1910 and 1975 and warm maximums in 1940 and 2005.”

    European rural station temperatures are represented by just two stations, one of which starts in 1941.

    These two station records, and the European surface station record, are all higher than the SST’s after 1988.

    The 2005 SST peak is much higher than the previous 1940 peak, on the temperature anomaly graph.
