Scientists mimic ‘Day After Tomorrow’ film, says global warming leading to colder weather

It didn’t take scientists long to explain the shift in weather as 2014 had the coldest summer since 1992 and more cold weather is already here. “Experts” now appear to be taking page out of Hollywood’s science, pulling from the film Day After Tomorrow, claiming the global warming will lead to colder weather.

The frequency of 90 degree days in the US has been plummeting for 80 years according to the new data released during the summer. “2014 has had the lowest frequency of 90 degree days through July 23 on record. The only other year which came close was 1992, and that was due to dust in the atmosphere from Mt Pinatubo.”

The claim is that the decline in “Arctic sea ice has doubled the chance of severe winters in Europe and Asia” according to a group of Japanese researchers led by the University of Tokyo’s Masato Mori said in a study published today in Nature Geoscience.

“This counterintuitive effect of the global warming that led to the sea ice decline in the first place makes some people think that global warming has stopped. It has not,” Colin Summerhayes, emeritus associate of the Scott Polar Research Institute, said in a statement provided by the journal Nature Geoscience, where the study is published.

“Although average surface warming has been slower since 2000, the Arctic has gone on warming rapidly throughout this time,” he said.

These computer models predict that “climate warming is expected to outweigh the sea-ice effect toward the end of the 21st century.”

The researchers didn’t address the data that indicates Antarctic ice is at record levels as “Climate scientists have been puzzled by the behavior of the southern ice for many years now. The most commonly used models say that its steady growth should not be happening in a warming world…”

A 2012 Forbes article analyzed the hurricane data to illustrate how there are fewer major hurricanes compared to the 1950s and earlier. This contrasts the predictions by the climate change scientists as NOAA downgraded their predictions for 2014 as well.

The temperature change which was so alarming in the data presented as early as 2012 was 0.8 warmer over 160 years – chart below. More here
