NOAA Maps US Cooling Trend at -3.7 Degrees over 15 Years

I am not sure how these numbers were generated but they observe the exaggerated scope of continental temperatures.  That the US has been on a powerful down swing throughout the past decade and a half is surprising.  The difficulty is that local variation and seasonal swings completely confuse the record for everyone.

This also suggests that upswings are just as precocious.

The truth is that we have to few reliable proxies that stand scrutiny.

While all this has been going on, the Arctic has been absorbing excess heat each and every year.  This is probably were the warmth went.  We effectively have negative
one heat unit on shore and positive one heat unit in the Arctic ocean.  Why?

Some may question my linkage but those are our two anomalies.

October 2011 NOAA Data: U.S. Temperature Cooling Trend of 15 Years Continues, -3.7 Degrees

Climate reality keeps defying (mocking?) the IPCC's Climategate scientists. When examining the global temperature trends, it is clear that global warming has actually been missing for the last 15 years. This has definitely been the case of the continental U.S., as the graph on the left depicts.

And, as the chart on the right depicts, this "global cooling" of the U.S continues in spite of the world's ten worst accelerating CO2 emitters (below the red line) over the last two years. The countries increasing their CO2 emissions the most are: South Africa (home of Durban), Egypt, Brazil, Vietnam, Iran, South Korea, Saudi Arabia, Indonesia, India and China.

The NOAA/NCDC chart represents the 15 years (180 months), starting November 1, 1996 and ending October 31, 2011. Per these latest U.S. official temperature data records, the 12-month period ending October was the 5th coldest October-ending period for the last 15 years.

In terms of a single month, October 2011 was the 33rd warmest since 1895 (October 1963 was the warmest).

The per century cooling trend of this period, a minus 3.7°F, took place despite the huge warmth produced by two large El Niño events during this 15-year span: 1997-1998 and 2009-2010.

For the 10-year period ending October  2011 (November 1, 2001 thru October, 2011 - 120 months), the cooling trend accelerates to a very significant minus 10.6°F per century rate - again, per the updated NOAA/NCDC temperature records.

Please note: These linear temperature trends, as shown in the NOAA chart, are not predictions.
