Above-average temperatures despite La Niña, predicts UN

The prediction can be reviewed in about mid-2022. The UN of course invariably expects more warming, which it likes to attribute to human activities and then demand ‘action’.

Temperatures in many parts of the world are expected to be above average in coming months despite the cooling effect of a La Niña weather phenomenon, the United Nations said Tuesday.

The UN’s World Meteorological Organization (WMO) said La Niña, which last held the globe in its clutches between August 2020 and May this year, had reappeared and is expected to last into early 2022, reports Phys.org.

This, it said, would influence temperatures and precipitation, but despite the phenomenon’s usual cooling effect, temperatures were likely to remain above average in many places.

“The cooling impact of the 2020/2021 La Niña, which is typically felt in the second half of the event, means that 2021 will be one of the 10 warmest years on record, rather than THE warmest year,” WMO chief Petteri Taalas said in a statement.

“This is a short-lived respite and does not reverse the long-term warming trend or reduce the urgency of climate action.”

La Nina refers to the large-scale cooling of surface temperatures in the central and eastern equatorial Pacific Ocean, occurring every two-to-seven years.

The effect has widespread impacts on weather around the world—typically the opposite impacts to the El Niño phenomenon, which has a warming influence on global temperatures.

But the WMO has warned that global warming is helping to worsen and distort the effects of such natural phenomena.

    But that’s probably the case in any year, while others are below average and the rest about average.

    One example of the ‘many places’: Temperatures were predicted to be above average in the eastern and southeastern parts of North America, most of Europe and northeastern parts of Asia.

    Can’t help thinking the truth is the reverse of what the UN Church of Climatology says – 4.6 C here in the south of France.

  5. Peter says:

    IF temperatures were normally distributed around the mean (they aren’t) then 50% of measurements would be ‘above average’. It is a meaningless metric, suitable only for causing concern.

    Looking forward to November UAH readout c 3 Dec

    NOAA are the sort of scientists who think a dice is loaded if you throw anything above 3.5.

    Above average happens naturally 50% of the time.
