May was about 1 degree cooler than average for my tiny part of the globe. Mostly due to cloud cover and a wetter than average month. Very comfortable by our standards. Dr. Roy Spencer has not updated the UAH global temperature yet but it will be interesting to see if it is the second month in a row below the baseline.
We were -2.2 F below normal for May. And the global UAH anomaly is bouncing on its way down the slope ... seemingly consistent with the mid-year ENSO values.
Makes a change in climate 'Science' to have something testable inside the lifetime of the forecasters.
It would. They're probably relatively young and can get away with a little youthful exuberence in the interest of science, while trying to tske down the old guys. Not sure what I'd rather be ... wrong and warmer, or right and freezing my butt off.
Everybody is talking about the Terminator Event. But there is something different about this one. If you note the chart below, every identified terminator event (all five of them) starts in a narrow time frame separating the pre-cycle El Nino from the following La Nina. Theoretically, it is also associated with a "kickstart" of solar activity. In all five cases, this point has been between 17 an 25 months into the newly called cycle. Solar Cycle 25 has a called start date of December, 2019, approximately 18 months ago. BUT, the pre-cycle La Nina began in June, 2020 ... only 7 months into the cycle. AND they say that the Terminator Event has not occurred yet. You see where I'm going with this. In the previous five cycles, we have not seen a Terminator Event AFTER a La Nina. So what does that mean going forward? Should I invest in high quality wool? Or is the event not neccessarily tied to a following La Nina?
lols at those prices .. i use merino wool base layers and there half that price or less .. £79 for a top ?
What does it matter now if men believe or no?
What is to come will come. And soon you too will stand aside,
To murmur in pity that my words were true
