From 2001 to 2011 — Summers cooler, winters colder

Russ Steele

Anthony Watts has a very interesting post at Watts Up With That which I will not recreate here. His lead in headline:

NCDC data shows that the contiguous USA has not warmed in the past decade, summers are cooler, winters are getting colder.

Anthony has a series of very telling graphic evidence of the climate change over the last ten years. Here is a sample:

Be sure the read Anthony’s Update. It is a real eye opener.  The current NCDC data shows cooling, but the cooling is even more telling once the NCDC “adjustments” are removed.  We maybe on the cusp of the Next Grand Minimum!

Steven Goddard has a very interesting post at Real Science on the lack of sea level rise since 2002.  Is this decline a pending ice age indicator?

The most sophisticated sea level satellite is Envisat. It doesn’t show any sea level rise since it was launched in 2002, so our friends in the sea level community tried to hide it by painting it almost invisible yellow and not normalising the data properly.

Steve has an animation that shows the corrections and shows how completely bogus the claimed sea level rise trend is.

My question is where is the water going?  It is no longer filling the ocean basins.  Where is the ice building up?  Could the continuing lowering of sea levels be an ice age indicator?
