All our 12 months are well above average for my latitude, as seen in the 60N climate battle thread. But if our climate would be like as in Nunavut, there wouldn't probably be anyone here but seal hunters and Sami.



Yes, that's correct.
Well idk, Fairbanks isn't unpopulated.

London averages 22.6C for June-August.

20.2C for the warmest half of the year, 10.3C for the coolest half.

Fairbanks is 4 degrees north from me, and it was inhabited by only Inuits 150 years ago.


Well, anyway, here's a graph of June-Aug avg mean temp deviations in Helsinki since 1961:



Since 1997 the majority of summers have been above average, while in the 70's and 80's the majority were below average. During this century not a single summer has been 1C below average, which was completely normal before the late 80's.

Here in Turku the Jun-Aug high temp has jumped from 20.6C to 21.4C during this 97-13 summer period.

Well it's the opposite here, everything is below average.

TBH I think the weather that we are getting every year now is actually more closer to average than the normal average. My reasoning is because I think the high sunspot activity and the warm weather of the 1990s has skewed the data. When I look back at data for the 1930s to 1960s the weather we are getting now seems about average.

1940-1970, and especially the 50s and 60s, had the coldest temperatures of the entire 20th century. 1900-1930 had averages similar to today (there's an old newspaper article on a heatwave in August 1911 and it states that the average is 74F or 23.3C)

Yea well I think that the 1990s was a major anomaly so the perceived cooling we are getting isn't really cooling. (and I am talking about Northern Ireland. )
