The global cooling impact of the current La Nina is being fully realized now in global tropospheric temperatures.
The linear warming trend since January, 1979 remains at +0.14 C/decade (+0.12 C/decade over the global-averaged oceans, and +0.18 C/decade over global-averaged land).
metmike: Anyone STILL see accelerating, dangerous warming causing a climate crisis?
You do? Oh, let me clarify that then. I meant on the REAL planet earth. Not the simulated one that has completely lost touch with reality (-:

Incidentally, in the CET we’ve just broken the record for coldest April Min temperatures.
It had already been reported that April had seen its highest level of air frost in 60 years, with an average of 13 days of air frost topping the previous record figure of 11 days in 1970 (records for air frost go back to 1960). This number of air frosts is more typical for December, January or February, whereas the average number of air frosts in April is five days. For gardeners and growers there were also a record high number of ground frosts with 22 days this month compared to an average of 12 days.
metmike: This is WEATHER, not climate!
We've seen the lowest average minimum temperatures in the UK since 1922 this month, according to our provisional figures. Find out more in our latest press release https://bit.ly/3aPL3vy
metmike: You can design all the scary make believe pictures that you want for your magazine covers and news stories and exaggerate all the facts and use busted computer model simulations programmed with extreme, subjective unrealistic mathematical equations from biased scientists but YOU CAN'T change the fact that NONE of the authentic data shows a climate crisis..........it shows a climate optimum.
It's long past TIME to start being honest about this because the distance/disparity between the the fake climate crisis and the truth... a climate optimum is big enough to drive a mack truck thru it and continues to widen!
Let's compare TIME's fake depiction of our planet above, with one that represents the REAL earth below.
"From a quarter to half of Earth’s vegetated lands has shown significant greening over the last 35 years largely due to rising levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide, according to a new study published in the journal Nature Climate Change on April 25.
An international team of 32 authors from 24 institutions in eight countries led the effort, which involved using satellite data from NASA’s Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectrometer and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer instruments to help determine the leaf area index, or amount of leaf cover, over the planet’s vegetated regions. The greening represents an increase in leaves on plants and trees equivalent in area to two times the continental United States."
"However, carbon dioxide fertilization isn’t the only cause of increased plant growth—nitrogen, land cover change and climate change by way of global temperature, precipitation and sunlight changes all contribute to the greening effect."
Arctic sea ice is in sort of a melting pause too.
metmike: 7th lowest, when the models predicted the melting would accelerate...so it should be LOWER than that and melting MUCH faster, when people like Al Gore said the Arctic sea ice would be all gone in the Summer by 2014. Why do you suppose they don't show you the previous years in the graphic at this link?...only some higher reference points to cause the line this year, to be the lowest one on the graph?
Read Wikipedia, below giving us bs on the Arctic sea ice. Why is it bs? Because they are cherry picking years from a decade ago or even longer than that when they could pluck out the most alarmist FORECAST possible......and then they pretend it applies to now.. Hello Wikipedia...........Earth to Wikipedia! The year is 2021, stop pretending its back when the ice was melting faster to give us fake news! You have plenty of data since then, just look at your own graph. Anybody see a death spiral in the extent of Arctic sea below??
"The Arctic sea ice decline has occurred in recent decades by sea ice in the Arctic Ocean melting faster than it refreezes in the winter. The IPCC, in its Fourth Assessment Report, stated that greenhouse gas forcing is predominantly responsible for the decline in Arctic sea ice extent. A 2007 study found the decline to be "faster than forecasted" by model simulations. A 2011 study suggested that it could be reconciled by internal variability enhancing the greenhouse gas-forced sea ice decline over the last few decades. A 2012 study, with a newer set of simulations, also projected rates of retreat that were somewhat less than that actually observed.
metmike: I'm not claiming that alot of sea ice didn't melt up to around 10 years ago. Just that the melting rate and ice have stablized since then, NOT melted even faster as we are being told.
There is no crisis in the Arctic. Polar bear numbers have INCREASED 30% since 2005. They are NOT being threatened
NEW: Global Warming causes everything:Polar Vortex invasion. Previous events similar to this. We were told that this was caused by global warming. The science/facts show the complete opposite. Texas energy disaster caused by lack of Winterizing with too much dependence on green energy(wind). Obama's climate czar, telling us that global warming caused the extreme cold 7 years ago. April 2021
