Govt.Climate Report Ignores Two Years of Global Cooling

Typical of the Warmist Cabal, who have been caught ALTERING THE EMPIRIACAL DATA, and FLATOUT LYING about temps. and sea levels, MULTIPLE TIMES. N0 coincidence, the new "Climate Report" that the Fake News is frothing over, IGNORES THE PAST TWO YEARS :

Don't Tell Anyone, But We Just Had Two Years Of Record-Breaking Global Cooling

NASA data show that global temperatures dropped sharply over the past two years. Not that you'd know it, since that wasn't deemed news. Does that make NASA a global warming denier?

Writing for Real Clear Markets, Aaron Brown looked at the official NASA global temperature data and noticed something surprising. From February 2016 to February 2018, "global average temperatures dropped by 0.56 degrees Celsius." That, he notes, is the biggest two-year drop in the past century.

"The 2016-2018 Big Chill," he writes, "was composed of two Little Chills, the biggest five month drop ever (February to June 2016) and the fourth biggest (February to June 2017). A similar event from February to June 2018 would bring global average temperatures below the 1980s average."

Showcasing your own and others' ignorance like this is nothing short of embarrassing. 2015-16 was the biggest El Nino event ever recorded. It made 2015 and 2016 the two hottest years ever recorded... though the real headlines should have been 2014 and 2017, which had negative ENSO conditions yet still claimed the #4 and #3 ranks respectively, beating out all previous El Nino record years.

When I last checked back in September, 2018 was shaping up as the new 4th hottest year. In other words, in the utterly unprecedented scenario where the five hottest years are the last five years, you've still got morons out there foaming at the mouth as they scream about global cooling. It really is one of the most remarkable proofs of extreme cognitive dissonance I have ever seen.

ENSO index figures are averages of twelve 'monthly' values, set back six months as an estimate of global dispersal times (eg, JJA 1997 to MJJ 1998)

This is the same kind of thing we saw in 2013 when, following the lowest ever recorded extent of Arctic sea ice in 2012, another British trash tabloid the Daily Mail triumphantly paraded global cooling because there wasn't a new record low every single year.

This kind of 'reasoning' would be embarrassing to most primary school kids, but it really is the best that deniers can manage.
