As a complement to my previous post February U.S. Temperature – 8.26 F cooler than the warmest February I thought it would be interesting to look at large state, in this case California, the third largest state with an area 423,970 km2 (163,695.57sq mi). And the biggest when it comes to population (37,253,956 April 2010).
California is the same size as Iraq. And is much bigger than Japan and Germany.
As I always point out:
And remember, these are the official figures. With the poor placement of stations (91 % of the stations are CRN 3 to 5 = bad to very poor); where they have purposely taken away the urban heat island effect, use huge smoothing radius, the historical “adjustment and tweaking” to cool the past etc.
Not to mention the great slaughter of GHCN stations 1990-1993 – roughly 63 % of all stations were “dropped”. Oddly enough many of them in cold places – Hmmm? Now the number of GHCN stations are back at the same numbers as in 1890.
Also remember that the US stations are now nearly a third of the all GHCN world stations.
California February temperature 1900-2011
“The average temperature in February 2011 was 45.0 F. This was -2.6 F cooler than the 1901-2000 (20th century) average, the 20th coolest February in 117 years. The temperature trend for the period of record (1895 to present) is 0.1 degrees Fahrenheit per decade. “
This year, the February temperature is - 8.7 F cooler than 1963, the warmest February. And if we compare this year’s February with 1991 it is - 8.2 F cooler. If we compare with1924/1907 this year’s February is - 7.9 F cooler. And if we compare with 1980 is – 6 F cooler
This February is – 2.63 F degrees cooler than the average for 1900-2011.
And the “warming trend” 1900-2011 is exactly 0.08 F degrees a decade. That is a whopping 0.8 F warmer in 100 years. Take cover!
And notice the dramatic rise from 1933 to 1934. A rise of 8.6 F degrees.
Another big rise from 1962 to 1963. A rise of 7.9 F degrees. Followed by nearly as a big drop 1964. A drop of – 7.6 F degrees.
That’s what I call RAPID WARMING and an eminent treat to humankind!
And California did not cease to exist because of this “catastrophic” rise in temperature as the Global Warming Hysterics want us to believe.
Nothing happened. Everything went on as normal.
Interesting wouldn’t you say?
There are other years in the chart when the temperature increases 6.6 – 8.3 F in one year. And still, somehow mysteriously, California went on as normal.
So a “predicted” rise of 3- 4 F degrees in 100 years is a total catastrophe for humankind.
But an ACTUAL RISE OF 8.6 F degrees IN ONE YEAR is nothing.
Interesting ”science” wouldn’t you say.
This is the “stuff” that “Global Warming” is made of.
California recent 3 months (Dec-Feb) 1900-2011
This year, the Dec- Feb temperature is – 3.1 F cooler than 1981, the warmest Dec- Feb. And if we compare this year’s Dec- Feb with 2006 and 1995 it is - 1.5 F cooler.
If we compare with 1970,1963,1959, 1924 and 1907 this year’s is - 1.4 F cooler. And if we compare with 1940 it is – 1.7 F cooler
This recent 3 months is 0.46 F warmer than the average for 1900-2011.
And the “warming trend” 1900-2011 is exactly 0.08 F degrees a decade.
California recent 12 months (Mar-Feb) 1900-2011
This year, the Mar – Feb temperature is – 1.9 F cooler than 1927, the warmest Mar – Feb. And if we compare this year’s Mar – Feb with 1905 it is - 1.7 F cooler.
If we compare with 1997 this year is - 1.8 F cooler. And if we compare with 2009 and 1902 it is – 1.4 F cooler
This recent 12months is – 0.03 F degrees cooler than the average for 1900-2011.
And the “warming trend” 1900-2011 is exactly 0.09 F degrees a decade.
Notice how the “warming” increases:
The February “warming trend” 1900-2011 is exactly 0.08 F degrees a decade.
The Dec- Feb “warming trend” 1900-2011 is exactly 0.08 F degrees a decade.
The Mar – Feb “warming trend” 1900-2011 is exactly 0.09 F degrees a decade.
That is truly “Global Warming” Californian style.
