Below normal temps are also occurring in Europe and Asia. It snowed in the Sahara desert a couple of days ago. Solar minimum is the cause. Specific areas experiencing arctic outbreaks are due to atmospheric oscillations and are cyclical. Overall, we are in for a 30-50 year cooling trend and this is just the beginning. 🌬
This is retarded even by your standards
since 2010, the last 8 years have all made it in the top 10 hottest years since accurate temperature recording.
Global cooling only happens if u drink Fox News kool-aid?
2017 Could Be among Hottest on Record
It's funny that you say that because accurate temperature recording covers a much longer period of time. Notice this:
In the same way that they can tell you CO2 levels during the Ice Age, they can tell you the temperatures back when they were just as high as they are now. And another thing, They mention that 2017 was about 0.73° warmer than the 20th century global average
, which includes any cooler years.
Also, the rate of increase in temperature is about 1/10th of what was predicted in the Global Warming models of the early 2000's.
National Geographic wrote:Are the Antarctic’s ice sheets shrinking or growing? And what does that mean for global sea-level rise?
Those questions are being hotly debated by the world’s climate scientists as global leaders prepare for the UN climate talks in Paris at the end of this month. Now, a new study by a team of NASA climate scientists has sparked controversy by reporting that “Antarctica is actually gaining ice.”
Scientists concluded in the Journal of Glaciology that the loss of glacier mass in Antarctica’s western region is being offset by thickening of glaciers on the continent’s eastern interior, which has experienced increased snowfall. The result: A net gain of about 100 billion tons of ice per year, according to the report.
