When Tokyo experienced man-made climate change
– Winter 1944/4 –
Post 06 October 2018
P Gosselin and Kirye provided at NTZ an interesting information concerning temperature trends at Tokyo on 4. October 2018, titled: “Tokyo Surface Temperature Shows No Trend Over Past Quarter Century…Cooling Now Accelerating”. With reference to the Figure on the left, they observe that the overall trend over the past 30 years, Tokyo has warmed modestly, but that warming trend, however, is mostly due to the colder years in the late 1980s and early 1990s. When looking back at the past 24 years, Tokyo has been cooling off, as is the case for many other cities in Japan. In Tokyo the year 2017 was the coldest in over 20 years. Gosselin and Kirye finish their post with the remark: “This contradicts claims of runaway warming that we often hear from climate warming alarmists.”
The time will tell whether the cooling trend sustains. If that is the case, the theory of the influence of CO2 on global temperatures will need to find better justifications. What remains on track is the question of what role humans play in air temperature warming or cooling. This can be clearly demonstrated by an event that occurred only a few decades ago. It was man-made by naval war in the Pacific. It was like a huge field-experiment and it worked sufficient. The whole story is discussed in the book “Failures of Meteorology! Unable to Prevent Climate Change and World Wars” (2012, p. 219 – HERE”, from which few short excerpts with Figures are given here on.
A cold winter in Japan 1944/45
All text are excerpt from the book ChapterH:
Pacific War, 1942-1945, contributing to Global Cooling?
Only nine months before Japan surrendered in August 1945 the country went through an unusually very cold winter 1944/45. Since autumn 1944 the US Navy recaptured the Philippines , this actually lasted until the surrender of Japan one year later. One of the largest engagement took place in the Leyte Gulf, and covered a number of clashes and fighting that are know as Battle of the Leyte Gulf. The belligerents employed at least 40 carriers, 20 battle ships, and about 200 cruisers and destroyers, as well as many hundreds of airplanes. The distance to Okinawa was not more than about 1,000 km and to the south of Japan 2,000 km. Japan ’s North-South supply lines could be penetrated more effectively by submarines and bombers. Water masses from the military operations or attack areas were carried with the Northern Equatorial Current and Kuroshio Current towards Japan within a short period of time, and suddenly Japan had an exceptionally cold winter based on the months of December 1944, January and February 1945.
