  1. There is not direct conexion betwen “El Niño” and ice on Artic. Look at 1998. Climate is changing faster, we are having “El Niño” this year again probably and we didn’t have a real “La Niña”. Some scientifics predicted 20 years ago that we were going to have a permanent “El Niño”, i guess they were right. They also said Antartic was going to melt before Artic. I guess they were right too.

    1. There will be no permanent El Nino. There never has been. Double peaked El Nino’s have happened before.

      As for Antarctic, the extreme oscillation up and down led to record highs 3 years running.

      1. We will see. Antartic is going down very fast and very low. So far from the last record lowest for this date.

    2. I think the low response of the Arctic ice to the El Nino of 1998 was because the oceans were colder than now and the ice extent of 1996 was very high,

      but the systematic decrease of Arctic ice started just after that El Nino.
      Both the low minimums 2007 and 2012 coincided or followed just after the El NIno’s of 2006 and 2012,

      The relative lack o ice in Antarctic is more in the region that connects with the Pacific ocean, the ice at the south of the Atlantic is quite normal, in my opinion,

      The S Atlantic is in a cold phase (for many years) but the S Pacific is now warmer. During the period of record highs of the Antarctic ice (2012-15) the Pacific was cold too.
      The two things that changed since 2014 were the peak of solar activity in 2014-15 and the El Nino of 2015-16.
      The reason why the La Nina is a bit slow to form is probably the to low solar activity that is creating pools of heat and cold in various places.

      1. I think the Alarmists are making a serious mistake with their apparent belief that the El Nino warming and higher than normal Arctic temperatures bear out their claims that AGW is the cause and the planet is warming.

        If – as I understand – the warmth of the El Nino is due to ocean oscillations causing overturning of the oceanic strata bringing warm water to the surface and this is causing the polar warming, this indicates that vast quantities of heat are being radiated to space from the North polar region.

        The effect of that should be obvious even to the most ardent CAGW supporter.

  2. Everything is going faster than ever. Effect of double CO2 or CH4 is much biger than effect of sun. Every scientifics know this fact. Why is so difficult for some people accept real facts?

  3. Tiny change in temps? You must be joking. 0,94C in 2016 over the average by NOAA. 0,64C over the average in 1998 (the bigest “El Niño” for that moment). And we are having “El Niño” again in 2017. NOAA, NASA, JMA, IPCC…they all say changes are going so fast. Are all they stupid or bad people who want to confuse us? I don’t think so.

  4. NASA, NOAA, JMA, Copernicus…..they all give similar datas for difference betwen average of temps in 1998 and 2016. February of 2016 was around 1.3C over the average. But this february we have 0.98C and we don’t have “El Niño” yet. All this by NOAA, with NASA temps are a bit higher. And march is coming hoter.
