As reported by a myriad of mainstream news outlets, including http://www.wltx.com, “[global warming] doesn’t necessarily make growing cold-sensitive plants any easier in the Southeast US”.
Reporter Alex Calamia decided to plant a Mandarin in the WLTX garden. Calamia chose the ‘Owari Satsuma’ variety because of its cold tolerant and early ripening properties.
“The Midlands has a history of getting too cold on occasion for even this citrus variety,” explained Calamia, “so I decided it’d be a great indicator of how warm our winters are getting.”
The reporter delved into the weather books for Columbia, South Carolina (which date back to 1888) hoping to prove his point. And while the adjusted temperature data does indeed appear to show a warming trend, this trend is explained by increasing solar output, the Ubran Heat Island (UHI) effect, and NOAA/NASA data-manipulation — in fact, it is probable that the the latter two are now the sole drivers of modern anthropogenic global warming.
Calamia, no doubt oblivious to the UHI effect, continued: “Despite recent decades being warmer than in years past, the frequency of arctic outbreaks does not have a clear decrease. I looked deeper into the record book for Columbia and noticed the frequency of arctic outbreaks in the early 1900s are similar to today’s numbers. Citrus would not have been much more difficult to grow 100 years ago than today,” concludes Calamia.
Once again, a raw and unadjusted dataset reveals nothing unprecedented is going on with our climate. The above data, as touched on above, correlates well with changes in solar activity, ocean currents, and the jet stream.
Calamia appeared disappointed/confused by the conclusion drawn, and he cuts the article short thereafter. He probably had one eye on the weather forecast, which reveals North America is set for its sixth and then seventh Arctic blasts of the season as we progress through October:
You best pick those Owari’s early Calamia.
Both NOAA and NASA appear to agree, if you read between the lines, with NOAA saying we’re entering a ‘full-blown’ Grand Solar Minimum in the late-2020s, and NASA seeing this upcoming solar cycle (25) as “the weakest of the past 200 years”, with the agency correlating previous solar shutdowns to prolonged periods of global cooling here.
Furthermore, we can’t ignore the slew of new scientific papers stating the immense impact The Beaufort Gyre could have on the Gulf Stream, and therefore the climate overall.
