California Drought Report #37 — Super El Niño?

1997-2015-el-ninoFrom NOAA NNVL: July 2015 Ocean Temperatures –
Conditions are currently warming up in the Pacific, and the NOAA Climate Prediction Center expects a greater than 90% chance that El Niño will continue through the winter and most likely into the spring. This image shows the July 13-19, 2015 sea surface temperature departure from the 1981-2010 average. In addition to the warmer than normal waters generated by the El Niño conditions, the Pacific Decadal Oscillation is also creating persistently higher than normal sea surface temperatures in the northeastern Pacific.

Anthony Watts notes at Watts Up With That:

If a record ENSO event occurs it would virtually guarantee that 2015 will become the warmest year “ever”, which will set off all sorts of calls for controlling global warming, 2C limits etc, even though El Niño has nothing to do with CO2 posited warming, being a natural event of its own.

How long will it be before our local left backed up by the Former Union Editor, before they claim that global warming has returned and humans are responsible.  One one thousand, two one thousand, three one thousand . , ,

    We are in a global cooling stage according to the same computer models and gauges used by those East Anglia buffoons. Can’t have it both ways. Or maybe you can.

    Steven,

    Here is the debunking of the NOAA debunk:

    Bottom line: To manufacture the new warming, Cheng et al. adjusted, tweaked, modified (tortured) subsurface ocean temperature reconstructions to the depths of 700 meters starting in 1970.

    And more here, if you can follow the data and the logic:

    We don’t need to claim global warming has returned because we never agreed it ever went away.
