Another Cold December to March for Many Locations

Posted: 11/07/2008 - La Nina is gradually returning. The Multivariate ENSO Index (MEI) has dropped to -0.74 in October, well into weak La Nina territory. The tropical Pacific sea surface temperatures all the way from South America to beyond the dateline are back below normal. The North Pacific as a whole remains strongly in the cold mode (negative PDO). The Atlantic is weakly in its warm mode (Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation is positive). The sun recently showing slight signs of life is still at solar minimum levels. The winds in the stratosphere over the tropical Pacific are blowing anomalously westerly) in their Quasi Biennial Oscillation. All these conditions point to another cold winter in all but the southeastern United States.

Humans warming the Polar regions?...Upon further review, maybe not

Posted: 11/03/2008 - Scientists use climate models to determine the causes of climate change in the two polar regions, finding that only when they included human influences could they explain the rise in temperatures in both areas. However, other scientists show climate models are extremely limited tools in trying to mimic what happens in nature. Also, the report looks largely at the Antarctic peninsula - which makes up only TWO per cent of the continent - and the eastern and western coastal regions, where they have found warming. The Antarctica continent itself is cooling. The report focuses on temperature changes going back to 1900 and up to the present, but doesn’t include earlier periods when areas in the Arctic were actually warmer than they are today and were not affected by man-made greenhouse gases.
