A 25 Year Global Cooling Trend

This article in the Daily Mail, describing “a global trend towards cooler weather that is likely to last for 20 or 30 years” has certainly stirred the AGW hysteria pot. Click here and here for the peer reviewed science behind the story.

But, what if I told you the planet is already 25 years into a global cooling trend? Well, if we’re talking about the annual rate of global temperature change, even the government funded alarmists at NOAA know -- for certain -- this is the case.

2/19/10 Update & Correction:
On closer inspection, I find I originally misinterpreted the NOAA chart below. The Y axis -- described as “Temperature Change” -- does NOT describe an annual change from one year to the next. Rather, it describes, after ENSO-adjustment, the total (warming biased) temperature change from the year on the X axis all the way through 2008.

Therefore, while the chart does clearly depict a recent flattening of the previous warming trend and even a recent cooling trend, it does not describe -- as I previously thought -- a 25 year decline in the annual rate of global temperature change.

Of greater significance is the following:

1) We see an on-going, uninterrupted 10,000 year cooling trend in BOTH the Arctic AND the Antarctic.

The citation links and more details are found here and here.

2) Click here for a game changing temperature trend revelation found at the intersection of the NOAA report cited in this post and recent admissions from the climate scientist at the center of the ClimateGate scandal.

Examine this NOAA chart.

Great weblog SBVOR - I found you on Pielke Jr's blog. I'd cite the work of Tsonis rather than Keenlyside et al - Tsonis et al is the real science behind the story:

A new dynamical machanism for climate shifts, GRL (2007)

The pacemaker of climate shifts (NAO), GRL (2009)

Has the climate recently shifted? (2001/2002), GRL (2009)

If you haven't seen these, they can be searched for on my blog ClimateResearchNews.com using "Tsonis"

1) You’re very kind, thank you.

2) I am also a big fan of your blog. In fact, your post inspired this post.

3) Thank you very much for the tip. I may not have time to look into it today. But, I assure you I will.

Best Regards,
