This is the face of rapid global cooling, which will change life on our planet more quickly than anyone is yet prepared to acknowledge. All 50 states will see freezing temperatures on Tuesday and Wednesday with millions of Americans facing another bitter blast of unseasonably cold air.
A ferocious storm dumped massive piles of snow on parts of upstate New York, trapping residents in their homes and stranding motorists on roadways, as temperatures in all 50 states fell to freezing or below. Even hardened Buffalo residents were caught off-guard Tuesday as more than 4 feet fell in parts of the city. Authorities said snow totals by Wednesday afternoon could top 6 feet in the hardest-hit areas south of Buffalo, with another storm expected Thursday. The snow has gotten so bad in Western New York that Gov. Cuomo has called out the troops.
Bone-chilling nights will be followed by frosty cold days with highs struggling to reach the 20-degree mark over the regions on Monday and Tuesday. Some locations in the Central states are forecast to stay below 20 F until Wednesday afternoon.
This is what happened to home electricity bills last year. Economic contraction was in evidence as well. The cruel monetary-policy-nullifying devil of Polar Vortex 2.0 has arrived in all 50 states (yes even Hawaii) will see temperatures drop below freezing.
Global warming is gasping in death throes but that does not stop its staunch believers from trying to warm people with words. Does not work! The headlines still ring, “GLOBAL warming could be making parts of the world colder.” You did not know it but “Global warming is worsening. It seems that new reports appear with increasing frequency emphasizing the worsening of global warming due to increased accumulation of man-made greenhouse gases (GHGs) in the atmosphere.”
Climate activists claim the “science is settled” and that “global warming is real” yet their predictions have proven blatantly false. Global warmers still have a fantasy about artic ice melting but we are now seeing record-breaking ice formation at both poles. Bottom line is that we now have the most snow cover on record for this date across the United States. A little over 50% of the country is now covered in snow. Global warmers obviously will never stop believing in fairy tales.
The dream of global warming dies hard in some people. In Australia they are saying, “The bottom line here is that a few cold outbreaks in the USA, no matter how severe, don’t mean the world isn’t warming. The world definitely is warming, according to just about every reputable science body, including our own Bureau of Meteorology, which says Australia’s climate has warmed by 0.9°C since 1910, with more extreme heat and fewer cool extremes.”
The reputable science referred to above does not exist. It is fictional man made up stuff, a grand illusion deliberately hatched by a select few men and woman who had nothing better to do than play with computer models that are proving to have nothing to do with reality.
The Arctic ice extent is now at its highest for this date in 10 years according to the Danish Meteorological Institute. That black line shows quite clearly that global warming has been turned upside down at the North Pole.
What we are seeing are temperatures as much as 30-50 degrees below normal across the Rockies and Plains this week, from Wyoming and Colorado all the way south into Texas. “This is exceptional cold,” AccuWeather.com Senior Meteorologist Henry Margusity said. “It’s the coldest air we’ve seen in decades during November.”
What is happening outside is that temperature records are falling left and right across the northern hemisphere. Temperatures at the Boise Airport bottomed out at 6 degrees Monday morning, breaking a 134-year-old record of 7 degrees set on Nov. 17, 1880. Record lows from Idaho to Nebraska and Iowa south to Texas and east through the Great Lakes. The eastern 2/3 of the US will shatter decades long and in some cases, century-long records.
The cold will reach down into areas that rarely see this kind of cold even in the dead of winter. What we are seeing in the United States is sub-freezing temperatures all the way down to the 30°N range. That is the same latitude as northern Africa.
Temperatures this low can make it dangerous for outdoors activities if you are not wearing the proper clothing. Parents should be advised and be aware of medical approaches to treating kids for cold conditions.
Special Note: With limited time still in power, President Barack Obama is staking his final two years on climate change, pushing the issue to the front of his agenda as he seeks to leave an imprint on the world that will endure after he’s gone. Not knowing what else to do after his prospects for realizing his goals on education, wages and immigration all but evaporate as voters handed his party a stinging rebuke in the midterms, he is drumming the global warming drums even as we enter the next ice age. This will leave everyone with a lasting impression on how insincere of a president he is and has always been.
