From Europe to Africa, extreme and widespread heat raises climate concerns in hottest La Niña year to date on record

The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) said the rising temperatures were at odds with a global cyclical climate phenomena known as La Niña, which is usually associated with cooling.

Globally, the warmest year on record was in 2016, boosted by the natural climate cycle El Niño. Last year, temperatures hit the highest level without that amplifying phenomenon. This year, at the other cooling end of the cycle, is continuing the overall upward trend.

El Nino and La Nina are not associated with warming or cooling. They are caused by the very slight shifting of equatorial currents through their normal variation, allowing the equatorial counter current to flow more or less strongly.

If the pathway opens up more, warm waters, normally near Asia, flow eastward, snuffing out the usual cold waters rising from the depths by the west coast of the Americas. El Nino.

If the pathway closes up more, those warm waters stay more strongly trapped against Asia. La Nina.

Usual distribution of warm water (generally westward, but somewhat spreading eastward) is a 'normal' year.

The same thing happens in the Atlantic, but it's not as strong, since the Atlantic is not as large.

It is not possible to measure the temperature of the Earth. Neither El Nino nor La Nina changes the energy of the Earth. It is not an 'amplifier'.

June update:

2018 is on track to be pretty hot, the 4th-hottest on record. Note that, using the year-to-date figure for 2018, the five hottest years on record are the last five years.

Meh. Same old chant from the Church of Global Warming.

Quite likely ...not a single science academy in the world would consider a calculated mean temperature difference of 0.01 degrees to be statistically significant.

Yes, it appears that pesky 18+ years (and counting)'pause' remains -along with pals...'confidence levels','error bars','margins of error' and 'data adjustments'.

“The first six months of the year have made it the hottest La Niña year to date on record,” said Clare Nullis of the WMO.

Ocean heat content (OHC) set a new record in the first half of 2018, with more warmth in the oceans than at any time since OHC records began in 1940.

That’s one of the headlines from Carbon Brief’s latest “state of the climate” report, a quarterly series on global climate data that now includes temperatures, ocean heat, sea levels, greenhouse gas concentrations, climate model performance and polar ice.

Global surface temperatures in 2018 are on track to be the fourth warmest since records began in the mid-1800s, behind only 2015, 2016 and 2017. Temperatures in 2018 were near record highs despite a moderate cooling La Niña event during the first half of the year.

Moderate El Niño conditions are expected to develop during November, which will contribute to a slightly warmer finish to 2018. However, as El Niño’s warming impact on surface temperatures tends to lag by a few months this event will mostly affect 2019.

It is not possible to measure the temperature of the oceans. El Nino doesn't warm the Earth, and it not caused by a warming Earth.
