North Pacific - California versus Japan
The point of this post isn't so much SST but the complex lead and lags between regions as currents vary with warming or cooling. 2 to 4 degree swings in SST are more the norm than the exception when enough data is collected.
That cartoon is based on the Marcott et al. 2013 Holocene temperature reconstruction. Skeptical groups and even the original authors have pointed out the limitations of the reconstruction, but our reliable agency NOAA is using it to show the world just how serious US science really is, yep it is a joke folks.
If you want to know about "Why the "Alarmists" love Marcott" just follow that link. Remember, these are our bestest and brightest so our future is looking a bit bleak.
