Over at sunspot-land, this chart won't be shown. Spencer has us getting warmer! I think it was those transient heat spots that appeared in the East Pacific. The sea levels were up, as well.
Spencer is a lot more jaggedy than the other plots. Next month will be down, if my hypothesis holds. The other plots should be down, as well.
ps. here's the sea level.
pps. a hypothesis lives to be tested in a timely manner, with physical mechanisms. It is not a grandiose 'theory of everything' that can never be tested. Although I suspect we are headed to a 'grand cycle' of intense cold, there are many hypotheses that need to be tested with live, in-field measurements. It's not about winning debates.
