We are in a deep La Nina, yet our temperatures are very warm. Warmer than many weak and medium El Nino's;

I believe this has occurred in ancient history right before every long cooling period.

truth be told, whatever your bias, you can find graphs and scientists who will confirm yours.....either way.

A weather phenomenon named by Spanish Colonists of California in the 1500's. Despite the fact that they drove very few SUV or diesel trucks.
Close ... actually Peru ... the warm blob of water would typically show up around Christmas time ... thus named after the baby Jesus ... El Niño ... this collapsed the fisheries in the area and lead to hardship and starvation ...

Weather data? ... are you predicting a mild to moderate La Niña event this winter? ... or just repeating NOAA's statements? ...

You gave us the UAH data for global temperatures ... La Niña is confined to a small section of the Pacific Ocean ... thus has no relevance to the claims you made ... so we're teasing you on your buffoonery ... looks like you just picked some random data set without thinking what the data represents ... the data doesn't say what you think it says ...

Such it tragedy - if only they had known that all they had to do was raise taxes a bunch.

No, we are not in a "deep La-Nina" It just reached the -1.0 threshold THIS MONTH, it takes time for the effect to show up, generally 1-3 months time.

Not only is your post is misleading and dishonest, it seems you are trying hard to run ahead of the game here, trying hard to convince yourself?

Since early 2012, it has been Neutral to El-Nino most of the time which favors a warming trend. The weak La-Nina never got past -1.0 level which was for less than one month.

Since late 2018 to May of 2020, it has been El-Nino most of the time, that is why it warmed a little.

This NOAA chart makes all that vividly clear

Note that NINO 3.4 shows well below -1 for now. Yet the anomaly for the northern hemisphere is +1.2 C, and for the arctic, 5.3 C. We have been in La Nina condition since September.

I see. Then you are claiming that the ENSO has no global effects? If so, you are a damned fool. Every climate scientists in the world states that the ENSO effects are global.

By that chart it has been neutral since March, April, May of this year. That is nearly nine months to cool down. If you look at the past record, it has cooled down significantly in that period in the past. I think November will also be a significantly warmer month, also. The times, and climate, they are a-changing.

Dansgaard-Oeschger events - abrupt warming to near-interglacial conditions and reversals which occurred in a matter of decades - prove the climate of a modern day icehouse world is more chaotic than the greenhouse world which existed before it.

So I wouldn't read too much into these trends at all. Other than to say the modern icehouse world is more chaotic than the greenhouse world before it.
