Rowan Dean at Sky Australia won’t have a bar of Global Warming. There’s nothing cheers him so much as a slew of record cold temperatures.
David DuByne seems to prefer chilliness too and posts some very appealing photos of camels in snowy Arabian deserts.
The Grand Solar Minimum has yet to bite though, and in the last 365 days, there have been more record high temperatures than low (according to NOAA/UCAR).
In my small world of Ten Weather Stations, at the end of Week 12 of the meteorological year, the Northern Hemisphere continues toasty. A cool southern summer has had an impact on the “global” figure – but not enough to send it in to the blue. The Mean Temperature this year (running average-to-date) is 0.77°C warmer than last.
The hemisphere “split” is just as stark in the Table showing current Mean Temperature above the Ten Station Pre-Industrial Baseline.
I guess we can blame the Russians for thwarting the Mini Ice Age.
