THE BLOB Has Dissipated

This post was intended as an update to the California Drought Report #47 on my  Sierra Foothills Commentary Blog. The reported blob and it’s consequences are no longer present. My apology for cluttering up The Next Grand Minimum.

Watts Up With That?

The Blob was the name given to the area of elevated sea surface temperature anomalies in the eastern extratropical North Pacific. It formed in 2013, coupling with a ridge of high pressure that impacted weather patterns across North America into 2015.  The Blob was the primary contributor to the reported record high global sea surface temperature anomalies in 2014, and contributed to the record highs in 2015 along with the 2015 portion of the 2014/15/16 El Niño. (See General Discussions 2 and 3 of my free ebook On Global Warming and the Illusion of Control – Part 1.  Also see the series of posts about The Blob for additional general information.)

After a noticeable drop in the sea surface temperature anomalies for that region…

  1. I wonder how the global land/sea temps can keep breaking records when both the Blob and the El Nino have been replaced by cooler waters. The Indian Ocean is also on the cool side and has been since early this year.

  2. Scientists propose a laser cosmic shield to protect Earth from space threats!

    Dr I. Ashurbeyli, Chairman of UNESCOs Science of Space committee.
    The team is planning a state-of-the-art protective shield for all humankind from cosmic threats to life on Earth such as space debris, coronal mass ejections and asteroid collisions.

    30 superlasers ALREADY EXIST! We MUST RAISE them UP NOW!
    50 petawatt class lasers currently operational, under construction or in the planning phase. http://journals.cambridge.org/download.php?file=%2F4331_9B60F139B12FCF681605BFFDDE518E50_journals__HPL_HPL3_S2095471914000528a.pdf&cover=Y&code=9c75a0e12c4828629f1f376d4cb1ef35
