The Version 6.0 global average lower tropospheric temperature (LT) anomaly for November, 2021 has come in at 0.08 deg. C above the 30-year baseline. This is down quite a bit (0.29 deg. C) from the October, 2021 value of 0.037 deg. C, and down substantially (0.51C deg. C) from where we were at the beginning of 2020.
A continuation of this downward trend is expected in the coming months/years as La Nina conditions/low solar activity persist.
Saying that, this recent drop has come as somewhat of a surprise — even for me.
For those who check in daily with climatereanalyzer.org (a dataset maintained by the Climate Change Institute at the University of Maine), you likely would have expected November’s LT to have held near its October reading of 0.37C–due to daily readings of between 0.4C – 0.7C above the mulitidecadal base prevailing throughout all of November. However, worth remembering here is that Climate Reanalyzer is just a forecast, it relies on models (the GFS) for its predictions, and we all know the trouble relying solely on models can get you into; whereas the UAH uses real-world data collated by satellites to paint its picture.
The far more reliable UAH has spoken, and according to those 15x NASA/NOAA AMSU satellites that measure every square inch of the lower troposphere (where us humans reside), Earth’s temperature cooled quite drastically in November (note also that the satellite data is preferable to ground measurements, with the latter susceptible to the Urban Heat Island (UHI) Effect.
If everything posted on this site is true, and it sure appears to be, we’re in for some rough times ahead and MSM isn’t doing it’s part to make people are aware so they can prepare. I am and yesterday I got a small sample of what I expect. I had my hydro go down around 1pm and no one even showed up to inspect the blown transformer until around 5pm. The power was restored just before 7pm. and it sent a message to me. I better get to it and make sure I can survive because if this is all true we’re screwed.
