I think we will see a great example of what I am talking about in the next 9 months, this being enso driven, as we see a monster of a la nina, reminiscent of the 50s, come on. Over the coming decades, I expect to see the earths temps retreat back to where they were in the late 70s. Why do I think that? Because TOTAL GLOBAL SEA ICE is near where it was in the late 70s. The earths temps can go no where without the oceans warming. While it is the hey day for Northern warming and since we measure temps with a heavy bias toward Northern data, its warm, no question,but one has to wonder why the sea ice is increasing in the south so much. In fact we didn't get close to the 2007 min this year in the north, but we are getting close to the 2007 max in the south. If one simply looks at the total picture, one sees nature in its wonderful balancing act, which what I believe all this is.
The 1950's La Niña was negative MEI for about 3 years, including below -1.5 for 9 full months in a row, and were coupled with a temporary temperature drop of about 0.2C.
As my 2010
Hogsh*t...have a go like Joe does. The components are in place.
