US Midwest having its coldest beginning of year ever

01 May

I finally replicated Steve Goddard’s Charts!  And now have my solver added.

Compare and contrast:


And mine:

2014-05-01 22_19_56-Microsoft Excel - Midwest through 04282014.xls

That is some serious cooling going on here in the midwest.  About 1.5°F cooler now than in 1900.

You can do this too with Steve’s code, available here:

    Can you explain what the “predicted” line is?

      “Predicted” is probably better termed “modeled”. It is the best fit of sine wave frequency, amplitude, phase, trend, and acceleration terms for lowest RMS error. Not predicted in advance, just best fit model… I’ll fix that on future charts. Thanks.

    For true knowledge of climate change for a long time, even up to a few hundred thousand years, we can use forecasts that can verify the state of the weather, but only on the basis of past and current events close. For more detailed assumptions of climate change for extended periods of time and narrow spaces on our planet, it is necessary to consider: what relationship they have all the planets and the sun in our solar system. Mutual influences are manifold and consequently -causes connections for the time corresponding to the duration of the cycle of these relationships. Of knowing, a portrait of the initiative with a real focus on the true source of the phenomenon, but there has to include a very strong institution or country that will support financially and with lots of astronomical data and techniques that can be formed by diagrams and sketches. which require several million to give a cycle of several hundred. even thousands of years of change. You must make such programs that it can work with .čak, a few million bits per second.
    Current science does not want to know and accept that the planets move in ellipses by Kepler, but by changing sinusoidalnoj curve that covers the ellipse and out but you can find plenty of information that affect the climate of the planet.
