It's Gonna Be Cold Next 20-30 Years

    "What's interesting about what we're seeing here is that [the current La Niña] is starting so cold," said Bastardi, "and it's coinciding with bigger things that are pushing the overall weather patterns and climate in the Northern Hemisphere and, in fact, globally over the next 20 to 30 years that we have not really dealt with, nor can we really quantify." .

    Bastardi has pointed out that the Pacific Decadal Oscillation (PDO), which is a pattern of Pacific climate variability that shifts phases usually about every 20 to 30 years, has shifted into a "cold" or "negative" phase.

    It's already cold.

    Well, then. I told you so! :D
  4. isnt this like a stock guru calling a top in the market even though the chart is pointing straight up?

    •For 2010, the combined global land and ocean surface temperature tied with 2005 as the warmest such period on record, at 0.62°C (1.12°F) above the 20th century average of 13.9°C (57.0°F). 1998 is the third warmest year-to-date on record, at 0.60°C (1.08°F) above the 20th century average.

    •The 2010 Northern Hemisphere combined global land and ocean surface temperature was the warmest year on record, at 0.73°C (1.31°F) above the 20th century average. The 2010 Southern Hemisphere combined global land and ocean surface temperature was the sixth warmest year on record, at 0.51°C (0.92°F) above the 20th century average.
  5. called GLOBAL WARMING. wide swings in climate is predicted by the presently accepted scientific model :eek:
  6. pspr


    There is NO presently accepted scientific model.
  7. Where's the data pre-20th century?
    Could the earth be just going through a normal cyclical warming and cooling phase?
    You're citing data for 2010, 2005, & 1998, and comparing it to all of the 20th century.
    This site is a government propaganda site.
  8. That's a very nice image.
    So you global warming frauds need to explain why the earth warmed from Quaternary, all through to the Triassic, without the greenhouse gases caused by man.

    Toward the bottom, the cooling phase around 2000 certainly goes against the warming trend cited by the brain-washed non-Free Thinker. And that line moving toward the warm section, below 2000, is pure speculation. [​IMG]

    i live in chicagoland.....we just had 20inches of snow and 3-4 feet of snow drifts. i am stuck at home as plows have not yet come to clean the street.

    if this is the beginning of a trend of colder temps for this area (i will leave the global warming debate aside) we may be in for a mass exodus from this area. this happened last in the late 70's early 80's after a decade or more of colder winters where chicago went from no. 2 to no. 3 in population rank.

    and to add salt to the wound the financial crisis in this state seems to have no end in sight.
