“Normally the high Arctic has about 90 days above freezing. This year there was less than half that,”  says Steven Goddard website.

“The Arctic ice extent is showing a remarkable recovery from the great oscillations of 2012,” says Guimaraes. “Compare with the previous years listed there, you’ll see that 2004 is the year that is closest to 2013 in terms of average temps during the summer.”

    Here’s an update on the Brazilian ‘cold snap’.
    It has certainly disrupted agriculture, the sugarcane has suffered and it damaged at least a fifth of the harvest. We may hear of the other crops later.

    Just now faxed a letter to the Prime Minister advising the government about this matter. Obviously this coming winter is going to be severe. The British public are in need of the information. The public are completely misled about the disaster coming down the road. I advise people to stock up and to buy really proper winter clothing. Including ski goggles for when the temperature falls below minus 30*C. Frozen eyes go blind. In 1980 the winter here was “Siberian” with heavy snow [whole villages in the county had to be evacuated] and temperatures falling over night, without any warning, to minus 50*C. I had no protection. I suffered a frozen head and a frozen knee and hip. I woke up that morning to find ice three inches thick on my window pane inside where the humidity had frozen to the window. I tell the kids about it, but they think that I am lying to them. They cannot believe me. Have received delivery of my winter outer jumpsuit and two of the one piece winter playsuit for wearing in the house. Got then from Amazon. Selling at sale prices because the foolish traders look at the summer heat and cannot believe it that they bought in to all this talk about the Ice Age coming. So that they lose and I gain. Believe you me that this coming winter 2013/2014 is going to kill thousands of people.

      If it’s Britain, you are lying off your head.

      Britain has never recorded a temperature below -30C and one of the years of record lows was December 1981, not 1980.

        Maybe because the UK is surrounded by the ocean’s water, which sheds it’s summer heat thus keeping old man winter from being too severe….just sayin…

    • F. Guimaraes says:

      I agree that the coming winters will start to look and feel more and more like the 70’s.
      Consider, for example, the following thread of Steven Goddard,
      http://stevengoddard.wordpress.com/2013/07/31/arctic-ice-growth-since-1971/

      He made a comparison of the Arctic ice extent of 1971 (using a National Geographic map) with the present extent (NSIDC I think), which is probably not yet at the lowest level of this year that usually comes around mid September, and concluded that we have now more ice at the Arctic than what the National Geographic map showed for 1971.
      People at the thread counter argued that the larger amount of ice was due to the fact that the season of 2013 has not finished yet, and therefore the comparison was not valid, or “robust” as someone said.
      That is true, but there is another aspect that people commenting there seem to not have noticed, that Steve also posted some graphs of IPCC from 1990 and comments of NCAR (and confirmed by another report from the CIA) that
      “In February of 1972 earth-orbiting artificial satellites revealed the existence of a greatly increased area of the snow and ice cover of the north polar cap as compared to all previous years of space age observations.”

      and, of course, this means that the comparatively low levels of the minimum of 1971 were probably high in relation to the years before that.

      The graph of IPCC shown in the thread reveals some very large negative anomalies around the year 1975, especially in 1974, close to 1 million Km^2 negative.

      Therefore, if you add all this information you’ll have the strong impression that just before the great cooling of 70’s there were great oscillations in the Arctic’s ice extent too, as we’re having now and just before the maximum positive anomaly of the century in 1978, which was followed by the strong warming of the late XX century
      http://climate4you.com/images/NCDC%20MAATand3yrAverage%20Global%20NormalisedFor1979-1988.gif

      and the strong oscillations of the ice extent this century,
      http://i1282.photobucket.com/albums/a532/dhm4444/seaice-arctic-anomaly-13-07-11_zps720be4d4.png?t=1375459283

      caused, I believe, by the abnormal increase in solar radiations of cycles 21 and 22.

      I think that what this comparison is telling us is that in the XX century the strong oscillations of the Arctic ice extent may have occurred more than once (in the 1950’s, probably also during the 1930’s, etc.) and depending on the level of solar radiations they could have been followed by abrupt periods of cooling and strong snowfall, as occurred in the 70’s after what seems to be a period of at least 10 years of negative anomalies in the Arctic (as the reports in that thread indicate).

      In conclusion: because the solar radiations are now (cycle 24) considerably lower than in the 70’s (cycle 20), I think is reasonable to expect an analogous evolution of the world’s climate (i.e., strong abrupt cooling) just after the point when the oscillations in the Arctic icecap stop. I believe this is happening right now during this 2013 summer, with the abnormally cold weather registered in N. Pole so far and the observed deceleration of the ice melt.

      We are still learning all these things because our unbelievable political “leaders” are in fact leading us astray in these matters and not helping us as they should. They are not telling the truth and not even wanting to pay attention to so many voices that are pointing in the same direction, which is the exact opposite of the GW alarmists.

      I really believe that we’re heading to an abrupt and strong cooling in the years ahead: people will be surprised and GW will vanish as a smoke of jokes blown away by the coming cold climate.

  4. Alex says:

    I remember an article that proved how Little Ice Age affected both Northern and Southern hemisphere; since Antarctica(not to mention this winter in South America) had record ice extend in the last 2 years Northern Arctic will soon follow.

  5. John McC says:

    Neil, I do believe that our climate (in the British Isles) is in a state of flux. Here in N. Ireland we have had the warmest July since records began in 1910 with mean maxima of 21.8C – about 3 degees C above the average high. Then we had the damaging snowfalls in March which lay on the ground in some places for weeks, killing tens of thousands of farm animals . In 2010, we had the coldest December ever recorded. One wonders what this winter will bring. ‘Exacta’ forecasters are indicating that it will be something special. Time will tell.

    • Neil Love says:

      Thank you John McC for your observation. I am of the opinion that this summertime hot weather is a temperature inversion [bubble] that will turn to our disadvantage come the winter months. The situation in the Arctic being so severely cold is creating high air pressure zones in the temperate belt. In such high pressure zones the sunlight is reaching the ground and thus driving temperatures through the roof. But the same high pressure zones, if they persist, will result in very severe cold in the winter months. Biting frost possibly even down to minus thirties or lower ? One might also wonder why the High Arctic is so cold this summer ? Why is it that already a month in advance the Artic Ice is returning ? Have you heard reportage about the “Noctilucent Clouds” NLC ? These NLC have never before been recorded in human history and are a bit of a mystery. This summer they are coming on very strongly. NLC are existing primarily in the polar regions, but this summer they have been observed at lower latitudes too. Their altitude being 65,000 meters to 80,000 meters puts them even above the stratosphere. Are they water ? Are they space dust ? One thing is certain is that these NLC are blocking out the sunlight in the polar regions. Noctilucent Clouds are changing the rule book. The following website show a interest in the Noctilucent Cloud phenomenon. http://www.spaceweather.com

    • A Reader says:

      John:

      You just touched on one of the fundamental flaws of the AGW theory.

      Since radiation is not, due to Stefan-Boltzman law, proportional to the temperature of radiating body, the temperature variations that you describe force an additional outgoing radiation that spells out some cooling. The “radiative forcing” is a fallacy because it does not account for the above fact.

      But then, again, you need really sharp and broadly educated scientists to notice such a flaw in a deluge of more or less irrelevant, even if valid, arguments.

    • Boo says:

      Hallo John,

      Don’t forget the increase in flooding since 2009. And when its cold enough as Robert repeadly warns us; what would be 1 inch of rain becomes 10 inchs of snow.

      Maybe the only prepping that will ensure survival is too move to the warmer regions.

  6. Alex says:

    Neil,
    Two questions the first where are you living currently? The second where do you get the -30c in the UK in 1980 from the lowest its been is -27c at night in one or two spots also i think you mean winter 1981/1982 when in dec and early Jan below -20c did happen at night as for 3 inches of frost on windows your taking the mickey m8 oh and if you faxed David Cameron did you think he will listen?
    Winter 2013/2014 who knows ….not all UK winters will be colder than average unless an proper ice age starts even in the little ice age there was extremes of heat and cold which the written records attest too(we have a cool temperate maritime climate here)but since 2007 but there certainly seems to be a trend for this colder winters now and cool rubbish summers.

  9. Hank Murphy says:

    Out side of one week in July and the odd day here and there, here in the Great Lakes basin temperatures have been well, well below normal all year, and this summer has been terrible, with temps 5-8 degrees C below what they should be. August is like a cool September this year. It sucks!
    The idea of Global cooling to me is far, far worse than that of Global warming. I used to hope that global warming was true, but more and more I am beginning to believe that the opposite is unfortunately true.

  10. edmh says:

    In the UK the weak solar cycle 24 has kicked in since 2008 and the solar experts expect the decline to continue on into the next cycle 25 and the next decade.

    The Central England Temperature record gains since from 1970 – 2000 coincided well with three active solar cycles 21 – 22 – 23. This period of high level solar activity matched the great Global Warming scare.

    CET winter December – March temperatures have shown a significant loss -1.45°C in the last 12 years of since 2000.

    However recently a further more extreme escalation of the temperature decline has occurred. In the first half of 2013, CET temperatures were on average a full 1.89°C lower than the monthly averages of the previous 12 years. That decline has lead to significant crop failures and serious loss of agricultural productivity. The effect has been mirrored in both hemispheres.

    Global Warming advocates only ever propose solutions for the control of Global Warming, (overheating), by reducing CO2 emissions.

    Catastrophic Anthropogenic Global Warming advocates fail to explain how reduction of man-made atmospheric CO2 can ever can help to control Climate Change towards a cooling world. However the climate is presently changing, (as it continues to do naturally), to a colder phase, probably because of reducing solar activity and changes of ocean circulation patterns.

    Having made so many dire predictions of impending climate catastrophes from overheating, Global Warming / Climate Change advocates fail to accept that a climate change towards a cooler climate is more likely to lead to more intense adverse weather. There is good reason to expect this, simply because the energy differential between the poles and the tropics is bound to be greater and that in itself leads to less stable atmospheric conditions.

    A cooling world as the Northern Hemisphere seen in the years since 2000 leads to much more dire consequences for the biosphere and for mankind than any realistic amount of warming that could ever arise from man-made CO2 emissions. Cold is a much greater threat than any moderate amount of additional warmth that could result from greater release of Man-made CO2.

    National policy makers and the United Nations are neither recognizing nor are they preparing for the eventuality.

    But throughout this period CO2 levels have been increasing.

    The cooling climate could well last for many decades or even centuries.

    With a quietening sun, changing ocean circulation patterns and the present evidence of much colder winter weather in both Hemispheres, that cooling could already be upon us.

    Perhaps its the sun and planetary mechanics that control the world’s climate.

    The UK weather records during the period from 1780 to 1830 show heat waves as well as cold waves. Also periods of heavy rainfall and droughts so bad that even the Thames went dry.

  16. Steven says:

    Lets say that we start seeing a trend towards 45 days or less above freezing in the arctic. Could this be an indicator of the onset of some kind of an ice age or should it be viewed as a short term anomaly?

    The summer ain’t over yet!!! The tropics are starting to get “warmed up” and starting to get active, the drought in southeast Texas is worsening.

    Coldest July on record in many places. We’ve already witnessed the deaths and destruction caused by an enormous tornado in Oklahoma in May. Again millions of people suffer through, and are endangered by, record cold. This and other recent events dramatically demonstrate that the earth is profoundly threatened by a new weather phenomenon, “Global Cooling.” If left unchecked the earth will turn into a frozen, lifeless ice cube like Mars. This calamity is being caused by the atmospheric changes brought on by all the rich left wingers. By overheating their large mansions, flying around in their personal jets and spewing toxic waste from their mouths, they block the sunlight from reaching earth. Fortunately, there is a solution. By imposing a 100% tax on left wingers we can save civilization and the earth. Al Gore, we’re gonna get our money back.

  41. Ken says:

    Pretty interesting. This plus the fact that we are heading for late summer/early fall beginning this month and next only means that arctic temperatures will likely drop even further in coming weeks – sustaining the cold summer already in progress now. This will be especially true after mid August as arctic daylight begins to fade, resulting in lower 500mb thickness values (colder temps at 18,000 ft) in these regions on constant pressure meteorological charts. Therefore any recovery of arctic temperatures after this time frame will be unlikely.

    • F. Guimaraes says:

      The Arctic ice is rebounding quickly this year, what it’d probably not do if the temperatures were normal for the summer, especially if we consider the very low levels of ice extent of year ago.
      The snow cover of the NH and the ice extent during the winter have also been greater than the years of this century before 2008, showing a well defined cooling trend of the NH.

  54. Recorded temperatures alone do not cover the millions of years of unrecorded temperatures. The so called experts are ignoramuses who simply have an agenda to control everyone’s lives and care not for the truth.

  55. stevenws says:

    Alert weather station on Ellesmere island has been seeing a summer average below normal. Barrow seems slightly above normal. Thule seems normal to slighly below. The weird heat spell in New England seems to have been followed by a emerging uncharacteristic cool spell. All this does seem to point to at least something strange in the coming winter.

  59. A Reader says:

    The “science” behind the AGW theory is about as solid as was “science” behind Soviet-style Marxism half century ago.

    The problem is that the scientists who committed themselves to ideology and politicking are likely to commit a moralistic fallacy: deriving “is” from “ought”. Which they apparently did in this case.

    Also, climatology has never attracted the brightest and the most knowledgeable. As a result, we have a group of world’s best second-league scientists dictating their flawed visions to the entire world. It would be much better if they tried to learn how to actually predict the weather few weeks in advance.

    The AGW theory is not only based on biased data but also has some mathematical and computer-scientific flaws. It is a – mildly speaking – sloppy science.

    The chicken will come home to roost, eventually. We may be witnessing the beginning of it.

    The only folk not seeing the great potentials are those with a NWO agenda!

    Even if the AGW Hypothesis were as plausible as many of the failed research papers suggest; any remediation attempt would require total control of the human population in every nation using the same standards methods and tactics. Hmmmm, that seems to fit into the left wing agenda rather nicely doesn’t it?

    Thad is quite right when he pointed out that we have been keeping weather records for a only relatively short time. The CET records go back to the 1660’s but we have weather references in the writings of monks going back many hundreds of years before that.

    At my location in the UK we have had 100+ year records broken for both heat and cold in a relatively short space of time. This year we had the coldest Spring since 1962 and an unprecedented lying snow event. The prevailing south-westerly airstream which normally brings us mild rainy weather seems to get ‘blocked’ for long periods. If this happens again over the winter months we are in trouble. It was such a blocking high in 2010 which directed the ash from the Icelandic volcanoes towards mainland Europe.

    Aint the core of the earth molten fire and brimstone? Noticed all the sink holes in the news lately? Well sir, methinks she’s running out of fuel and cooling. That be why the sinking. The earth will soon be a fraction of ‘er present size. Them that survive will be walking from Chicago to New York in a single day.

    I predict we will know more next spring than we do now.

    Why can I not easily e-mail this to doubting friends? I will NOT do business with facebook, etc., because of their leftist censorship. Help?
