2012 Is 0.6C Cooler Than 2010 So Far

Here are the details at Steven Goddard’s Real Science Blog:

All of the claimed warming of the 20th century is gone, despite solar max and neutral ENSO.

This was one of the shortest solar maxes in my memory. As the sunspots declined, so have temperatures.  I guess we will not be hearing that 2012 was the hottest year on record.

    I don’t think this cycle has peaked at all. Weak cycles, like SC14, seem to have spike of actvity interspersed with brief pauses. That’s exactly what this one is doing. Solar actvity has already started back with an X class flare today. I don’t know this but I suspect that bursts of actvity followed by lulls leads to some odd things with the polar oscillations and blocking patterns forming. In other words, extreme weather.

    Sean, thank you for a good comment about solar cycle. When it comes to solar cycles, I am an amateur, but I noticed, that since the last year, many bloggs are posting more articles about solar cycles – both, climate realist and the alarmist bloggs.

    To ignore sun and to pay more attention to CO2, was in my opinion really stupid.
