Little Ice Age Winter Weather Ahead (UK & N America) – Waning Gulf Stream & Sunspots

IN THESE DAYS OF “CATASTROPHIC GLOBAL WARMING,” THE SOUTH POLE JUST SUFFERED ITS COLDEST ‘WINTER’ IN RECORDED HISTORY

Contrary to the MSM’s agenda-driven narrative, the South Pole has been suffering unprecedented cold this year.

Between the months of April and September, the South Pole averaged a temperature of -61.1C (-78F).

Simply put, this was the region’s coldest 6-month spell ever recorded, and it comfortably usurped the previous coldest ‘coreless winter‘ on record — the -60.6C (-77F) set back in 1976 (solar minimum of weak cycle 20).

This incredible and AGW-destroying reality is confirmed by Antarctica climatology journalist Stefano Di Battista who has closely watched and published research on Antarctic temperatures for many years:

“1/1 Extraordinary coreless winter (April – September) at South Pole Station. The average as been -61.1 °C the coldest ever recoded. This value set -2.2 °C on the reference 1981-2010 and -2.5 °C on 1991-2020. Previous record -60.6 °C in 1976”

Battista also points out that for June, July, August and September the average temperature for each of these month finished-up below -60C (-76F) — a phenomenon that has occurred on just 3 previous occasions: in 1971, 1975 and 1978.

It has long been proposed that this upcoming bout of low solar activity (Grand Solar Minimum) will commence with a return to the historically cold winters of the 1970s — and here we are. Unfortunately, it’s only downhill from here:

“From 1650 to 1710, temperatures across much of the Northern Hemisphere plunged when the Sun entered a quiet phase now called the Maunder Minimum” — NASA.

A similar story is playing out at the North Pole, too.

The natural and slight warming trend observed over the past few decades is over: climate is cyclic, never linear, and trends change. And in line with this returning chill, Arctic Sea Ice is also on a sharp uptick this year.

It is a divisive, terrifying theory–and one they have the gall to blame entirely on us humans (which in itself is absurd).

AGW is ideal for advancing their overarching Great Reset agenda, which includes depopulation. They are breeding a culture of fear within the general public in order to achieve political goals via emotional bias.

Our children being the most susceptible to this kind of game-playing is no accident. But for all you adults still being manipulated by this ‘button-pressing’, the data is readily available for you to thoroughly evaluate. To ignore facts and logic, and to instead blindly believe the picture painted by those with vested interests shows a powerful ignorance, and cowardice.

How is it that a person can on the one hand harbor a distrust for politicians/politics, yet on the other unquestioningly believe what governmental bodies/scientists are telling them? How can it be widely accepted that governments are lobbied by powerful multinational corporations, yet when it comes to questions around the efficacy or even the need for a vaccine –for example– we all shut up?

There are powerful silencing tactics at play, driven by fear.

Added to that, most people have mastered the art of cognitive dissonance.

But it stands, asking pertinent questions is NOT the same as pushing mindless conspiracy theories. There are far too many coincidences for current events to be legit. The world is slowly waking up to their intentions — but as punishment, we’re now under their thumb more than ever. As the Chinese Communist Party is currently demonstrating, maintaining power is all that matters — power takes precedence over the health of the economy and the ‘happiness’ of the people, because once you have an authoritarian grip on the 80%, it’s game over for EVERYONE.

Heavy snow blasts south New Zealand

Snow Alert

Much of the South experienced snowfall overnight causing several state highways to close as severe gales look set to follow.

Wind would continue today with the potential for severe gales, but the weather should begin to clear tomorrow, forecasters said.

It was expected snow would fall to as low as 100m and the wind would be “bitterly cold”.

Snow settled is suburbs throughout Dunedin last night, including in the Town Belt before it was washed away by rain. Several centimetres of snow is still on the ground in the hill suburbs which contractors are in the process of clearing.

The weather caused disruptions in the South yesterday, with flights affected, and roads and schools closed as the polar blast swept through.

Snow began to fall in parts of Dunedin at 3pm yesterday.

MetService has several severe weather watches and warning still in place for today.

A heavy snow watch is in place for Fiordland south of Charles Sound.

A strong wind watch is in place for most of the South, including North Otago, Dunedin, Clutha, Southland about and south of Mossburn and Stewart Island.

The forecast for Dunedin today is showers, snow to 100m and possible squally thunderstorms before dawn, becoming isolated by afternoon with fine spells. Strong southwest, gale gusting 100 km/h in exposed places at first.

Meanwhile Queenstowners have been advised that if they do not need to drive that they shouldn’t.

The Queenstown District Council advised there was snow throughout the Wakatipu Basin and driving conditions were “extreme”.

The Crown Range Rd remains closed and the Orbus service in the town has been suspended.

Grit trucks are out and snow ploughs are being sent about the region to clear state highways and alpine roads.

If you must drive today, here’s the deal: snow chains, go slow, keep a safe following distance,” the QLDC said.

The Central Otago District Council said only essential travel should be undertaken in the Maniototo & Manuherikia area.

“Snow has fallen here, and freezing temperatures making conditions unfavourable. Crews will be focusing on the townships and sealed roads first.

Areas surrounding Roxburgh, Alexandra and Cromwell townships, especially the higher altitude roads, are heavily affected by snow and travel is not recommended.

Hundreds of dead bats found, ‘due to winter storm’ in Houston, Texas, USA

Bat Alert

Following freezing temperatures experienced across Texas last week, the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department is receiving several reports of bat fatalities.

Sharing an update on its Facebook page, the state agency warns Texans never to attempt to handle bats, dead or alive, as many colonies are being found frozen under overpasses throughout the state.

According to the Houston Zoo’s bat specialist and naturalist Suzanne Jurek, Winter Storm Uri largely impacted bats as they had already used most of their fat reserves, leaving them vulnerable.

“The main concerns were dehydration and low body weight,” Jurek said. “There were additional bats that were down but were doing well enough to climb or be placed on a vertical surface so they would be able to drop into flight at dusk to eat and fill up those reserves.”

According to Jurek, many bats across Houston were saved and taken to a rehab facility in the Lake Jackson area.

“We may continue to have some bats die from the aftereffects of the freeze but should be through the worst of it,” Jurek said.

Texas Parks and Wildlife is recording wildlife mortalities due to Winter Storm Uri.

Major flooding continues in USA’s South as Northeast hit with cold blast

Severe Weather Alert

There is major to near historic river flooding in parts of the Mid-South, especially in Kentucky on Tuesday.

Locally, 7 inches of rain fell over the weekend in the Mid-South helping local rivers to rise quickly and flooding entire towns. A state of emergency has now been declared for these areas.

Damaging thunderstorms moved through Georgia on Monday, killing one person when a tree feel on a home.

These storms also produced an EF-1 tornado with winds of 90 mph, not related to the victim’s death.

There are flood warnings from Texas to Ohio on Tuesday and 26 states from Texas to Maine are under flood, high winds and wind chill alerts.

The heavy rain has ended in Mid-South but some rivers are still rising or will remain in major to moderate flooding through over the next few days.

The heaviest rain shifted closer to the Gulf Coast from Mississippi to Alabama, Georgia and South Carolina where over the next few days 2 to 3 inches of rain is expected with locally higher amounts possible.

Meanwhile, in the Northeast, arctic cold air is moving through with very gusty winds that are producing power outages.

Wind will continue to gust in the Northeast from New Jersey to Maine at 40 to 60 mph through this morning and will subside in the afternoon.

Wind Chills this morning are below zero from upstate New York to Boston and into New England.

This bitter blast will not last and already by Wednesday most of the Northeast will see temperatures quickly rebound into the 40s and even 50s.

But it is still early March so the cold will be back end of the week as wind chills are expected to fall into the teens and single digits for the I-95 corridor and below zero in upstate New York and into New England.

Impossible travel across parts of Newfoundland as winter storm hangs on

Winter Storm

March certainly roared in like a lion across the East Coast on Monday, with a powerful winter storm that delivered strong winds, heavy snow, and rain across the Maritimes. The storm left behind frigid temperatures and wind chills throughout the Maritimes Tuesday, as well as intense wind gusts, while northern parts of Newfoundland and Labrador are still dealing with heavy snow and howling winds through Tuesday night. This will make for dangerous blizzard-like conditions and treacherous travel. Peak wind gusts have come down, but parts of the Maritimes could see them in the 90 km/h range, with 60-80 km/h gusts for Newfoundland. More on the impact and timing, below.

The intense winter storm that powered through the Maritimes and Newfoundland to kick-start the first week of March is on winding down Tuesday after bringing a healthy dose of snow, powerful winds and rain.

“It’s the winter storm that does not want to quit,” says Weather Network meteorologist Jessie Uppal. “It continues to show signs of strengthening as it spins and sits over the Gulf of St. Lawrence.”

What’s left of the storm will see lingering impacts through Tuesday evening along the northern coast of Newfoundland, as well as along the Gulf St. Lawrence.
