presented NYT story: „The Coming California Megastorm“, on 12th August 2022, warns:
These conclusions have been taken from a new study, which was published in the journal Science Advances, Dr. Huang and Dr. Swain replayed portions of the 20th and 21st centuries using 40 simulations of the global climate. What are 40 simulations of global climate worth, is they are not willing to show the they are able to analyses one of the most significant climatic events in California occurring in September 1939. Presumably for the first time observed, a former Hurricane hit the US west coast. After a heat wave came a major storm, releasing record precipitation. Even of more interest is the question, whether there was a link between the weather events in California and the war activities between Japan and Russia since 20the August in East-Asia, and in Europe since 1st September.
The Blitzkrieg saga ended in early December 1941
Post 21 November 2021
When Adolf Hitler attacked Russia on 22 June 1941 (Frontline strength, 3.8 million personnel), he believed that the highly successful Blitzkrieg strategy during the
first two war years would also be sufficient
to conquer Russia.But just five months
later, the concept ended in ice and snow between Warsaw and Moscow.Such a weather situation had not existed for over 150 years and
meteorologists had predicted the opposite.The reason: after the two winters in Europe 1939/40 and 1941/42 were
extremely cold and snowy, a third extreme winter in a row was ruled out.This has never happened since there were weather records.The forecast turned out to be catastrophic, but on the other hand revealed incompetence
in metrology, which turned out to be a blessing for the course of the war. Hitler
and the German Army Hitler and the German Army got their Waterloo and the end
of the earlier blitzkrieg successes.
To understand the drama, one only has to look at the weather and
temperature maps between Warsaw and Moscow for late November and early
December. These are around the freezing point, then as now. That was different in late autumn 1941. On December 9, 1941, the
NYT reported: "Nazis give up Idea of Moscow in 1941, as winter has stopped
the Germans short of Moscow", which as spokesman for the High Command
explained that "The cold is so terrific that even the oil freezes in motorized vehicles. Soldier and officers trying to take cover simply freeze to the
ground ". This unusual weather situation had been brewing since the
beginning of November. After a wet autumn, severe
frost set in unusually early. It was one of the earliest and severest since
observation had been recorded.
The extraordinary situation is reflected by two sources: The German Field Marshal von Bock, commander of Army Group Center, recorded in his
war diary on 5 November 1941 that the mercury dipped to -29°C (-20°F), and
Albert Seaton reported that around 24
November it was a steady -30°C (-22°F). Even the Russian the Meteorological
Service records of the minimum temperatures for the Moscow area in late 1941:
October, -8.2°C (about +17°F); November, -17.3°C (+1°F); December, -28.8°C
(-20°F). On 30 November the already mentioned Marshall von Bock informed the
Chief of Staff of the German Army, that his men face temperatures down to -45°C
(-49°F). Exaggerated or not, the winter came much too early and exceeded all
expectations. The misery continued to last, enhance by heavy snow and snow
drifts. The Blitzkrieg versus Russia ended already in early December 1941, and
marked the beginning of the end of Adolf Hitler’s great power aspirations.
embarrassing that this turning point can be traced back to incompetent
meteorologists, and that even 80 years later, climate science has nothing to
say about it and is silent. After all, two extreme war winters had preceded and had the involved
meteorologists inquired about their causes, namely the naval war in the North
and Baltic Seas and all other European waters, a false prognosis would have
been avoidable. The false and incompetent prognosis had a pronounced impact on the length
and outcome of World War II, and is to be judged as an unique stroke of luck.
However, that the reasons for this failure, has not been explored to this day,
means a severe failure in climatology.

“What Does 2000 Years
of Temperature Data Tell Us?”, is a good question in a recent essay by Willis Eschenbach at WUWT in March 2021 (see Ref.).
did the temperature start dropping after the Roman Warm Period? Why didn’t it
just stay warm?
did the cooling start in 200 AD, and not say in the year 600 AD?
did the temperatures start warming around 550 AD, and continue warming up to
the Medieval Warm Period peak at around 1000 AD? It could have stayed cold …
but it didn’t.
was that warming from 550 to 1000 AD, and not from say 800 to 1300 AD?
caused the steady cooling from about 1000 AD to the depths of the Little Ice
Age, where temperatures bottomed out around 1700 AD?
The Gulf Stream is weakening -
Is the North Atlantic understood?
Post: March 05. 2021
Has the North Atlantic
become the newest playground for climate science? Support has now come from the New York Times, (March 03, 2021), citing some scholars fear that “The warming atmosphere is causing an arm of the
powerful Gulf Stream to weaken”. The title of the article written by Moises
Velasquez-Manoff and Jeremy White is: “In
the Atlantic Ocean, Subtle Shifts Hint at Dramatic Dangers”. It immediately met with great approval from the readers: Fantastic article! Fantastic
visualization! Amazing graphics!
It is undoubtedly of high journalistic quality. Pretty much everything said in science is addressed in an understandable way, from the melting of the ice on Greenland to global warming by humans. The article ends by quoting Dr. Lozier as follows: “There’s no consensus on whether it has slowed to date, or if it’s currently slowing.
Ocean Climate Ripples

Reposting of a post by Ron Clutz; on February 18, 2017 , https://rclutz.wordpress.com/2017/02/18/ocean-climate-ripples/
Dr. Arnd Bernaerts is again active with edifying articles on how humans
impact upon the oceans and thereby the climate. His recent post is Global Cooling 1940 – 1975 explained for climate
I and others first approach Dr. Bernaerts’ theory relating naval warfare to climate change with a properly skeptical observation. The ocean is so vast, covering 71% of our planet’s surface and up to 11,000 meters deep, with such storage of solar energy that it counteracts all forcing including human ones.
Was there a scientific scandal in climate change
matters almost one dozen years ago? "Climategate" began in
November 2009 with the hacking of a server at the Climatic Research Unit (CRU)
at the University of East Anglia (UEA) by an external attacker, copying
thousands of emails and computer files (the Climatic Research Unit documents) see: Wikipedia . One side
claimed that the hacked emails showed evidence that climate scientists
manipulated data. The opposite side said that the release of emails was a smear
campaign. The latter group won. .... cont//
Human activities at sea contribute to warming.

The oceans are still the greatest unknown in the climate change scenario. Oceans cover 71% of Earth and they contain 99.93% of the thermal energy (“heat”) on the surface. Is it a too big issue for increasing understanding the matter? Certainly if you lump everything together! Progress requires selection! Focus on smaller regions, distinction between the seasons and on observations where people are particularly active. Then you would quickly look at the North and Baltic Seas. CONT...//
TO WATER - CHEERS
The text from
1994 -.see enlarge 1st image - republished here - Spring 2020
The most fascinating thing about the day on which the 1982 Law of theSea Convention comes into force in a few months' time will presumably be the fact that hardly anyone will be fascinated. While
the Earth Summit forced 170 countries to fly their leaders and delegates to Rio
in order to plan the planet's preservation, not even two heads of state will
meet on 16th November 1994 to pay tribute to the 1982 Convention, although this
paper will pave the way for rediscovering that water matters and that its
source is the oceans.
The 1982 Law of the Sea is to further understanding on
the natural commons buried since the industrial revolution 200 years ago. …
