A research station on an island in the Antarctic recorded a new record-high temperature for the region — less than a week after the temperature record was shattered on the Antarctic continent.

It’s only a data point.

Google “Record Cold Snap”. (Currently)

Plenty of places around the world are experiencing record lows. (more data points)

Even Saudi Arabia is experiencing record lows and they’re close to the equator.

If your link means we should be worrying about the planet warming.

Then my link means we should be worrying about the planet cooling...


Time will tell...

You're link makes me worry.... about the promotion of Google.

I provided 21 examples that are semi-balanced from a source that doesn't filter bubble the results. Did any of you're results include counter-examples? (I had deleted non-climate related returns)

This is via thedonald.win:
deepclips.com: United States led entire world in reducing CO2 emissions in 2019
Quote:
The United States led the entire world in reducing CO2 emissions last year while also experiencing solid economic growth, according to a newly released report.

“The United States saw the largest decline in energy-related CO2 emissions in 2019 on a country basis – a fall of 140 Mt, or 2.9%, to 4.8 Gt,” reported the The International Energy Agency (IEA) Tuesday. “US emissions are now down almost 1 Gt from their peak in the year 2000, the largest absolute decline by any country over that period.”
This year it will be China's turn.
www.zerohedge.comChina Has Ground To A Halt: "On The Ground" Indicators Confirm Worst-Case Scenario
Quote:
Morgan Stanley suggested that real time measurements of Chinese pollution levels would provide a "quick and dirty" (no pun intended) way of observing if any of China's major metropolises had returned back to normal. What it found was that among some of the top Chinese cities including Guangzhou, Shanghai and Chengdu, a clear pattern was evident – air pollution was only 20-50% of the historical average. As Morgan Stanley concluded, "This could imply that human activities such as traffic and industrial production within/close to those cities are running 50-80% below their potential capacity."

That's what happens when the jet stream gets drunk and wobbles around all weird from a lack of solar activity.

[CO2 emissions down] from their peak in the year 2000, the largest absolute decline by any country over that period.
That's funny considering who was president and vice president in the 1990s.

Dont worry. Im well aware...

Counter-examples?

Short-long answer... Kinda sorta.

You usually have to dig deeper to get what you want.


Search suggestions though are a whole other thing...




Yup...

Have you tried the search yourself? I don't do The Google, but DDG returns things like 'is mercury in retrograde'. Not going to screencap and repost. In theory 10 Google users would see a different result and ten DDG user would see the same.

I can't find the quote but Buckminster Fuller said that to solve a problem, you start with Universe and then eliminate everything too macro to matter and everything too mirco to matter. That gives the domain for the solution.

In the case of Earth's climate, the upper bound is the intergalactic medium and the lower limit is sub-atomic particles and photons.



Electromagnetism scales all the way up and down.

Old people who think the earth is a closed system and there are no interactions between galaxy, solar system, sun planets are funny.
