‘Catastrophic Earth Overheating’ sure does come in peculiar guises these days. The hypothesis used to be a relatively simple one to understand, even a coherent one worthy of further investigation. But in 2021, as the planet shows unmistakable signs of cooling, and as real-world observations continue to leave scientists like Michael Mann and self-indulgent prophets such as AL Gore with serious egg on their big fat lying faces, ‘Devastating Terra Firma Broiling’ –as I like to call it– now constitutes EVERY WEATHER EVENT KNOWN TO MAN, including record-breaking SPRING COLD and unprecedented SNOW MASS TOTALS across an entire hemisphere. It is long time we dumped the hokey hypothesis, but I guess it’s just too darn effective.
According to unofficial data compiled by coolwx.com, thousands of new low temperature records fell across the United States this past week (from April 19 to April 26) — an embarrassment of riches for the cold hunters, and just a flat-out embarrassment for the proponents of AGW.
Even according to warm-mongers NOAA, with their obfuscating UHI-ignoring habits (more on that below), the U.S. has seen a total of 14,214 new low temperature records set in 2021 (to April 19–and so before this past week’s new influx of unprecedented cold), versus the 11,244 for high. Furthermore, and even more telling, 224 ALL-TIME low temperature records have fallen this year, versus the big fat ZERO all-time record highs.
The Urban Heat Island Effect
The Urban Heat Island effect (or UHI effect) is a scientifically proven phenomenon — what is argued is its level of impact on the climate; however, in recent years, even this bone of contention has leaned in the direction of the ‘skeptics.’
Research in China indicates that the UHI effect contributed to much of the observed “climate warming” over the past few decades, with the Sun responsible for the rest–it having just gone through its strongest Solar Maximum of the past 1000+ years.
One recent paper, entitled “The Effect of Urban Heat Island on Climate Warming in the Yangtze River Delta Urban Agglomeration in China,“ presents evidence of a significant UHI effect on climate warming based on an analysis of the impacts of the urbanization rate, urban population, and land use changes on the warming rate of the daily average, minimal (nighttime) and maximal (daytime) air temperature in the YRDUA using 41 meteorological stations observation data.
The paper concludes that the average warming rates of huge cities and megalopolises are significantly higher than those of medium-sized cities and small cities, indicating that the UHI has a significant effect on climate warming: “Significantly positive correlations are found between the urbanization rate, population, built-up area and warming rate of average air temperature,” reads a passage from the paper’s abstract (linked here). “Urbanization has a measurable effect on the observed climate warming in the YRD aggravating the global climate warming,” concludes the researchers.
Another Chinese paper, “The footprint of urban heat island effect in China“, shows that from 2003 to 2012, the UHI effect decayed exponentially toward rural areas for the majority of the 32 Chinese cities: “We found an obvious urban/rural temperature ‘cliff,’ and estimated that the footprint of UHI effect (FP, including urban area) was 2.3 and 3.9 times of urban size for the day and night, respectively. We further revealed that ignoring the FP may underestimate the UHI intensity in most cases and even alter the direction of UHI estimates for few cities. Our results provide new insights to the characteristics of UHI effect and emphasize the necessity of considering city and time-specific FP when assessing the urbanization effects on local climate,” reads an excerpt from the study.
The COLD TIMES are returning, the mid-latitudes are REFREEZING, in line with the great conjunction, historically low solar activity, cloud-nucleating Cosmic Rays, and a meridional jet stream flow (among other forcings).
Both NOAA and NASA appear to agree, if you read between the lines, with NOAA saying we’re entering a ‘full-blown’ Grand Solar Minimum in the late-2020s, and NASA seeing this upcoming solar cycle (25) as “the weakest of the past 200 years”, with the agency correlating previous solar shutdowns to prolonged periods of global cooling here.
Furthermore, we can’t ignore the slew of new scientific papers stating the immense impact The Beaufort Gyre could have on the Gulf Stream, and therefore the climate overall.
