Japan under fire – cold is guaranteed – war-winter 1944/45

Posted March 10. 2017 – Comments welcome

The easiest way to grasp how climate works is to: Shell and bomb Japan severely over a couple of weeks and you will get an extreme cold winter in Japan. Here is the proof.  Since late autumn 1944 the Allies warfare machinery could target location and ports in Japan, and merchant and war ships in all sea areas surrounding the island country.  Immediately the winter 1944/45 (Dec/Jan/Feb) became the coldest on record since data were taken regularly, which should not come as surprise. (Fig. 1,2, and 7).

All sea areas around Japan are very deep and very cold. The average sea water temperature will hardly exceed 5 to 6 ° Celsius. Only the very top sea surface layer is up to about 15° warmer in the southern region (24°N), and only remotely higher in the North (40°N). But when several thousand merchant and warships, as well as many ten-thousand warplanes operate above, and below the sea surface, the extreme thin surface layer is ‘destroyed’ and replaced by much colder water.

The immediate result was inevitable. Japan’ winter 1944/45 (DJF) was the coldest on record.  The deviation from average is very pronounced and particularly significant as it has to be attributed to man-made cause. How can climate change ever be understood, if science is unwilling and unable to understand and acknowledge such easy case on anthropogenic climate change?

One comment to Japan under fire – cold is guaranteed – war-winter 1944/45

  • Paul Dot  says:

    An interesting assessment you give for the coldest Japanese winter. An important task for the new chief Scott Pruitt of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to verify, who told CNBC he “would not agree” carbon dioxide is a primary contributor to global warming [http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-39221092 ] and that measuring human impact on the climate was “very challenging”. Hopefully he means what he says and is serious about a better understanding of human impact on the climate by using such interesting case as offered here.
