Rahmsdorf apparently believes that no bad weather shouldn’t be blamed on global warming. But Joe Bastardi looks at the data.
German warmist Stefan Rahmsdorf is blaming recent European flooding on global warming. He essentially claims that a reduced temperature global gradient is causing weather patterns to stall — in this case a cold, low pressure system over Europe.
But Meteorologist Joe Bastardi says:
In times of low solar activity, such as we have now (in spite of being near the max for this pathetic solar cycle), the mean 500 mb field over Europe looks like this (below left image) and rainfall looks like this (below right image).
There is blocking over the top causing enhanced precipitation and cool temperatures over Europe.
All Rahmsdorf needed to do was to measure the years with a similar geomagnetic field (no doubt he has the data). It’s a sign that the sun is going to sleep — which is part of the theory concerning and imminent mini ice age.
BUT HE OBVIOUSLY DID NOT LOOK, and instead tried to latch on to something other what simple research would have shown to be a precursor to such events!!!!
