There is no end to their outright lying. It’s bitter cold in America, but they say it’s hot everywhere else. “Much of the United States is shivering through brutal cold as most of the rest of the world is feeling unusually warm weather. However strange it sounds, scientists say that contradiction fits snugly in explaining what climate change is doing to Earth.” Real scientists are saying no such thing.
Northern India has been grappling with dense fog and record-low temperatures for days now, reports Indian media. Hundreds of flights have been canceled in and out of the capital, with the New Delhi railway station also facing delays due to the invasive ‘cold wave.’
Exceptional lows have been sweeping transcontinental Russia recently, with lows approaching -60C. In the early hours of last Wednesday morning, a reading of -55.9C (-68.2F) was endured at Delyankir as a fierce and long-lasting mass of Arctic air continues to grip most of the Russian Federation. Delyankir has been enduring sub-50C lows for weeks.
The UK shivered through another cold night Tuesday, with some areas approaching record-low temperatures. According to the Met Office, thermometers sank to -13C (8.6F) in Glen Ogle, Scotland in the wee hours of Wednesday, marking the coldest night of the winter so far, besting the -12.5C (9.5F) recorded at Altnaharra in the Scottish Highlands back on Dec 3. Freezing temperatures and snow will continue across Britain this week as a “cold plunge of Arctic air” engulfs the whole country, the Met Office said, a spokeswoman for which added that the severity of the freeze is also due to how long the cold has lasted.
Western Canada is in the midst of a once-in-a-generation cold snap,” reports The Weather Network. “Temperatures have dipped into the -40s (C) across much of the province, including a record -51.5C low at Keg River.”
Across the US, hundreds upon hundreds of low-temperature records have been set, including in Texas, Oklahoma, and Kansas, where hard freeze warnings have also been put in place—across the Gulf Coast, from Texas all the way to Florida. Temperatures in Memphis, Dallas, and Nashville are expected to stay below freezing for at least 72 consecutive hours.
Much of the Rockies, Great Plains and Midwest will endure “life-threatening sub-zero wind chills Wednesday”, with it feeling like sub -30F forecast for swaths of the Northern Plains. “These wind chills could cause frostbite on exposed skin in a few minutes and hypothermia shortly thereafter,” the National Weather Service has warned.
More than 80% of the US will remain below-freezing over the next week as a second shot of polar air sweeps the country. But this reality is not permissible in the global warming debate because there is no debate; the Science is settled: hot = cold. However, until it snows in Miami, global warming maniacs will not give up.
Don’t Confuse Weather with Climate
Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) received a science lesson on social media after she took a page out of the conservative winter playbook and confused weather with climate change. The message from the mainstream is that we don’t have to worry about the weather. It is the climate that is the real issue. I have been watching and reporting on the weather for 25 years, which has persistently given a cold view of climate reality, but never confuse weather and climate, or you will get your ass chewed on social media.
Boebert dared to say, “You’ve got to appreciate the irony of climate protestors trudging through a foot of snow and -30-degree wind chills to yell about how the planet is warming. They don’t see it, do they?”
Some say “weather is what you get” and “climate is what you expect.” In a nutshell, “weather” refers to the more local changes in the climate around us on short timescales from minutes to hours to days to weeks. Examples are familiar – rain, snow, clouds, winds, storms, heat waves and floods. “Climate” refers to longer-term averages (they may be regional or global) and can be thought of as the weather averaged over several seasons, years, or decades. Climate change is more challenging for us to understand because the timescales involved are much longer, and the impact of climate change can be less immediate.
The recent and ongoing storms and frigid temperatures are affecting everything from air travel to NFL playoff games to Iowa’s presidential caucuses and were also the cause of several deaths around the country. It’s shutting down air traffic, making for miserable and often dangerous ground conditions.
Seeking Green Utopia, the US and
EU is Quietly Killing Vital Industries
Extreme cold has caused a myriad of other problems. Not least, there is a flatlining of wind and solar output and a significant drop in natural gas supplies — the freezing lows have frozen wells, leading to a substantial decline in gas production. It really sounds and feels this week to Americans, Europeans and the Chinese that the world will infact end soon from too much heat. Or it sounds like those politicians and climate organizations that claimed we had only 12 years before the world becomes like a hot frying pan belong in an insane aslyum.
But that is not a problem because it’s only the weather. It makes perfect sense, to some people, that record cold means the warmest temperatures ever. And for sure, we should trust the global warming cheerleaders who said there would be no more snow for children to play in and the ice at the North Pole would not exist anymore.
This was the temperature out of our back door yesterday at 8 am MST: -45C (-55C windchill). I have lived in Alberta since I was 10, in 1967. I have never seen temperatures go this low in Central Alberta — Edmonton to Calgary corridor.
Warm Sunny Florida
In Florida frost and freeze conditions will kill crops, other sensitive vegetation and possibly damage unprotected outdoor plumbing. Exposed skin may quickly become frostbitten or frozen. Wind chill values may fall to extremely dangerous levels and frostbite and hypothermia are possible if precautions are not taken.
Sub-freezing temperatures as low as 27 expected, according to the National Weather Service, Jacksonville. Very cold wind chills expected and could drop as low as 15 degrees, according to the National Weather Service, Jacksonville.
No Summer For The South Pole
It is the height of summer here in the Southern Hemisphere, yet our South Pole does not show it. Incredibly, the sub -40C (-40F) readings persist across the Antarctic Plateau. Concordia dipped below -40C over the weekend, with -40.3C (-40.5F) posted last Saturday. At the beginning of the month, we had “a historic, never-before-seen run of extreme summertime cold at the bottom of the world,” and it’s one that still shows no signs of abating; Antarctica’s unprecedented ‘Year Without A Summer’ drags on. As time goes on, people’s belief in climate hysteria hysteria will wane.
