Rocky Mountain National Park - Third deepest snowpack on record - Ice Age Now

Rocky Mountain National Park – Third deepest snowpack on record
May 14, 2021 by Robert

“You won’t hear about this in the mainstream media,” says reader Ryan. “Colorado front range already has more moisture than all of last year, yet all you hear is drought.”
___________

“Almost record snowpack in Rocky Mountain National Park because it’s been cool so far, and a lot of snow,” says Ryan. “It’s Mid May by the way, and you won’t hear about this. I had to look for it specifically.”

Bear Lake in RMNP still has 58 inches of snow on the ground; third deepest snowpack on record

“Only” third deepest.

However it’s due to chilly conditions, not necessarily snowfall, though there has been snow too recently for sure. Colorado front range already has more moisture than all of last year, yet all you hear is drought. Maybe since it’s been wet in the East, they are desperate for drought somewhere.

Did magnetic excursion cause Neanderthal extinction? - Ice Age Now

Did magnetic excursion cause Neanderthal extinction?
May 14, 2021 by Robert



That’s exactly what I said in both Not by Fire but by Ice and Magnetic Reversals and Evolutionary Leaps. Now here’s a video exploring that very question.
___________

View: https://youtu.be/Q7ty80YCOis
Run time is 15:13

This video by Anton Petrov explores the Laschamp magnetic reversal of 42,000 years ago, which lasted anywhere from 400 years to 1,000 years.

Petrov asserts that magnetic reversals occur every 300,000 years or so but then gives a nod to magnetic excursions, which take place much more often.

(I’m inclined to think magnetic excursions take place about every 11,500 years. And that they do it in sync with precession of the equinoxes.)

During an excursion, the earth’s magnetic-field strength declines precipitously, which allows carbon-14 and beryllium-10 to bombard our planet, says Petrov.

(I talk about that beryllium-10 in both “Not by Fire but by Ice” and “Magnetic Reversals and Evolutionary Leaps,” because I think the increase in radioactive materials inundating our atmosphere leads not only to extinctions, but to an increase in mutations and thence to evolutionary leaps.)

According to Petrov, the earth’s magnetic-field strength at that time declined to only five to ten percent of what we have today (I agree), and lasted for several centuries. Now, pointing to what is known as the South Atlantic Anomaly where magnetic field-strength has declined, he sees a similar thing happening on earth today.

That decline, which is well-documented, has already been enough to have destroyed a Japanese satellite.

“Even flying in an airplane is going to become extremely dangerous.”

“We know, without the magnetic field to protect our planet, that the satellite technology and a lot of aerospace industries are going to be basically impossible to maintain,” says Petrov. “Even flying in an airplane is going to become extremely dangerous.”

Petrov then ties the magnetic excursion of 42,000 years ago to the extinction of several megafauna (large animal) species in Australia at the time, pointing to the huge increase in ultraviolet UV) light, which, he says, is damaging to many kinds of cells.

The upshot of all this?

Maybe, just maybe, we are now headed for an excursion event, warns Petrov.

“This is perhaps something we might want to start preparing for – just in case.”

I agree that we should start preparing.

Think about it. How could a dramatic increase in radioactive materials raining down on our planet NOT lead to extinctions?

How could a dramatic increase in radioactivity bombarding our bodies – and the bodies of all living species – NOT lead to mutations and evolutionary leaps?

Trouble is, I’m not exactly sure how we begin preparing.

What does Wikipedia have to say about this?

According to Wikipedia, the Laschamps excursion occurred 41,400 (±2,000) years ago during the end of the Last Glacial Period; it was first recognised from a geomagnetic excursion discovered c. 1969 in the Laschamps lava flows in the Clermont-Ferrand district of France.[1]

The magnetic excursion has since been demonstrated in geological archives from many parts of the world.[2] The magnetic field was reversed for approximately 440 years, with the transition from the normal field lasting approximately 250 years. The reversed field was 75% weaker, whereas the strength dropped to only 5% of the current strength during the transition. This reduction in geomagnetic field strength resulted in more cosmic rays reaching the Earth, causing greater production of the cosmogenic isotopes beryllium 10 and carbon 14.[3]

The Australian Research Council is funding research to analyze a kauri tree uncovered in New Zealand in 2019. According to its carbon-dating, the tree was alive during the event (41,000–42,500 years ago).[4][5]

The geomagnetic field was at low levels from 42,200–41,500 years ago. This period of low magnetic field has been termed the Adams Event or Adams Transitional Geomagnetic Event, a tribute to science fiction writer Douglas Adams, who wrote in The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy that “42” was the answer to life, the universe, and everything.[6][7] During this period, Earth’s magnetic field dropped to below 6% of the current level, Carbon 14 production increased, ozone levels decreased, and atmospheric circulation changed.[8] This loss of the geomagnetic shield was also claimed to have caused the extinction of Australian megafauna, the extinction of the Neanderthals, and the appearance of cave art.[9][10][11] However, the lack of corroborating evidence of a causal link between the Laschamps event and population bottlenecks of many megafauna species and the relatively moderate radio-isotopic changes during the event have cast significant doubt on the real impact of the Laschamps event on global environmental changes [12]

Whales trapped by ice in the Arctic - unprecedented since the icy 1980s - Ice Age Now

Whales trapped by ice in the Arctic – unprecedented since the icy 1980s
May 16, 2021 by Robert

Fifty beluga whales are stuck in Penkigngei Bay. Presumably, they have been in ice captivity since January, but specialists saw them only in April. The animals are fed and constantly monitored.

Hopefully, the Beluga whales, stuck in ice captivity in Chukotka can soon escape as thermometers began to rise and the ice begins to melt. However, when the fast ice will completely melt is still impossible to say – perhaps in 10 days – or perhaps this may happen at the end of May, the press service of the Beringia National Park reports .

According to a zoologist specializing in marine mammals, Grigory Tsidulko, beluga whales are active swimmers, thanks to which the polynya remained open and continues to expand.

They have already eaten most of the fish they could catch in the 4 months in the trap

Tsidulko believes that there is a chance of survival, since Arctic animals are adapted to periods without food. Currently, they live on fat reserves stored in summer and fall, and scientists feed them as well. Although the fish stocks of the Senyavinsky Strait are sufficient for the survival of belugas in summer, they have already eaten most of the fish they could catch in the 4 months in the trap.

In 1984, a large-scale tragedy occurred – several thousand beluga whales were stuck in ice captivity. Throughout the winter and spring, local residents used chainsaws to prevent the hole from closing. An icebreaker was even called to help the animals, but most of the belugas did not follow him and died.

Chukotka, Russia, is located in the extreme northeastern portion of Siberia.

U.S. HAS SET 17,450 NEW LOW TEMPERATURE RECORDS THIS YEAR VS 13,886 HIGH + SINABUNG EXPLODES INTO THE STRATOSPHERE
MAY 17, 2021 CAP ALLON

Hottest day, week, month, year EVER, right…? That’s what we’re led to believe…?

Looking at the official data from NOAA –an agency known for its warm-mongering bias— the ‘year-to-date’ U.S. DAILY records summary reveals that a total of 17,450 new record low temperatures have been set compared to the 13,886 new highs.

During this time of “catastrophic global warming,” new cold records are comfortably outstripping new highs, even in those datasets that routinely “adjust” the measurements and willfully ignore the Urban Heat Island (UHI) effect. The latter of which Roy Spencer PhD. believes is exaggerating the global thermometer records warming trends (click below for more on that).


Furthermore, the U.S. ALL TIME records summary reveals that 223 new unprecedented, never-before-observed low temperature benchmarks have been busted this year, versus the solitary 1 for all-time record highs.

This disparity between cold records and hot records has only been increasing in the month of May.

Below are the new temperature records for the past 7-days (from May 10 to 17), courtesy of coolwx.com.
Note, the new lows continue to far-outstrip the new highs.



And looking ahead, this cooler pattern looks set to persist for many:

The odd bursts of ‘spring’ could be on the cards for some; however, any warmth will be fleeting.

And for a number of states, record cold and heavy mid/late-May snowfall are even in the forecast:

SINABUNG EXPLODES INTO THE STRATOSPHERE

Sumatra’s incredibly active Sinabung Volcano exploded in spectacular fashion late last week, sending volcanic ash high into the atmosphere.

The Volcanic Ash Advisory Center (VAAC) Darwin warned of a thick ash plume rising to an estimate 40,000 feet (12.2 km) on Friday; however, ground observations weren’t able to confirm the plume’s exact height.

Just hours later though, HIMAWARI-8 confirmed a 30,000 foot eruption, which in turn was followed by a number of 35,000-footers.

Particulates ejected to altitudes above 32,800 feet (10 km) –and so into the stratosphere– have a direct cooling effect on the planet.

View: https://twitter.com/jaimessincioco/status/1392675497893523458

According to volcano.si.edu, Sinabung woke in 2010 after centuries of quiescence with it’s eruptive phase that year registering as a 2 on the Volcanic Explosivity Index (VEI).

However, that 2010 phase turned out to be a mere precursor to the long and powerful episode which began on Sept 5, 2013 and ran until Jul 15, 2018 which qualified as a VEI 4.

A year later, Mount Sinabung fired back into life, in May 2019.

Sinabung is certainly one to watch as we continue our descent into this next Grand Solar Minimum.

The volcano appears more than capable of producing a powerful VEI 6+ which would result in a dramatic cooling of the planet almost overnight.

UPTICK

Seismic and Volcanic activity has been correlated to changes in the Sun.

The recent global uptick in earthquakes and volcanic eruptions is likely attributed to the drop-off in solar activity, coronal holes, a waning magnetosphere, and the increase in Galactic Cosmic Rays penetrating silica-rich magma.

[I’m still locked out of Facebook–please share this article over there, too…]

The COLD TIMES are returning, the mid-latitudes are REFREEZING, in line with the great conjunction, historically low solar activity, cloud-nucleating Cosmic Rays, and a meridional jet stream flow (among other forcings).

Both NOAA and NASA appear to agree, if you read between the lines, with NOAA saying we’re entering a ‘full-blown’ Grand Solar Minimum in the late-2020s, and NASA seeing this upcoming solar cycle (25) as “the weakest of the past 200 years”, with the agency correlating previous solar shutdowns to prolonged periods of global cooling here.

Furthermore, we can’t ignore the slew of new scientific papers stating the immense impact The Beaufort Gyre could have on the Gulf Stream, and therefore the climate overall.

Five Major Datasets show Global Cooling, as Carbon Brief is Caught Lying to the Public - Electroverse

FIVE MAJOR DATASETS SHOW GLOBAL COOLING, AS CARBON BRIEF IS CAUGHT LYING TO THE PUBLIC
MAY 17, 2021 CAP ALLON

It is becoming harder and harder for government agencies to hide/explain-away the intensifying global cool down. The likes of NASA and NOAA have thrown all the data-fudging, UHI-ignoring, cherry-picking tricks they have at it, yet their global temperature datasets still show stark COOLING.

The two charts below show the calculated linear annual global temperature trend for the last 5, 10, 20, 30, 50, 70 or 100 yr period, courtesy of climate4you.com.

The first chart shows the satellite temperature trends for the top-cited UAH and RSS datasets:


Diagram showing the latest 5, 10, 20 and 30 yr linear annual global temperature trend, calculated as the slope of the linear regression line through the data points, for two satellite-based temperature estimates (UAH MSU and RSS MSU). Last month included in analysis: January 2021.

The second chart shows the surface temperature record for the GISS, NCDC, and HadCRUT4:


Diagram showing the latest 5, 10, 20, 30, 50, 70 and 100 yr linear annual global temperature trend, calculated as the slope of the linear regression line through the data points, for three surface-based temperature estimates (HadCRUT4 and GISS + NCDC). Last month included in analysis: January 2021.

Note the stark cooling trend observed by all five datasets over the past five years.

Note also the difference between satellite- and surface-based temperatures, with the more reliable satellites indicating a larger temperature drop.

The chart below shows the trend calculated for the past 5 years:


Last 5 years global monthly average surface air temperature according to the two satellite-based temperature estimates (UAH MSU and RSS MSU). The thin blue line represents the monthly values. The thick black line is the linear fit, with 95% confidence intervals indicated by the two thin black lines. The thick green line represents a 5-degree polynomial fit, with 95% confidence intervals indicated by the two thin green lines. A few key statistics is given in the lower part of the diagram (note that the linear trend is the monthly trend). Last month included in analysis: April 2021.

Clear to see is that Earth’s average temperature has been falling off a cliff (relatively) these past few months.

And this drop is being felt on the ground, too, with prolonged bouts of anomalous cold being reported across vast pockets of the planet.

Europe is living-through its coldest spring for a century+.

Transcontinental Russia witnessed its harshest winter and early-spring on record.

While North America was recently rattled by a record-smashingly cold February, and temperature departures for the latest month (April) also finished up well-below the norm.

Our planet is entering its next great cooling phase.

Climate is cyclic, after all, never linear; and this change to the colder has been brought-about by the historically low solar activity observed since the commencement of cycle 24.



This (ongoing) temperature drop was entirely predicted by those who study the Sun.

But it has come as a complete surprise for all those on the fact-lacking diet of AGW propaganda.

These sheeple first said such a temperature drop was impossible due to ever-increasing CO2 emmisions.

Now, they are saying the drop doesn’t represent “climate” as it is only 5 years.

By the time these parroting no-nothings acknowledge the cooling trend, it will already be well-upon us.

It will take the grand failure of harvests for the penny to drop. It will take empty grocery store shelves and government rationing. And even then, they will still believe that is was “catastrophic global heating” what did it…



CARBON BRIEF CAUGHT LYING TO THE PUBLIC

“Carbon brief caught lying to the public,” writes David I Birch on Twitter. “Trust no-one with an Agenda.”

Carbon Brief is a UK-based website designed to “improve the understanding of climate change, both in terms of the science and the policy response”.

The site is a literal hotbed for alarmist rhetoric, with its favorite topic being ‘catastrophic Arctic sea ice melt.’

According to one recent article, “Arctic sea ice has reached its maximum extent for the year, peaking at 14.77m square kilometres (km2) on 21 March. This is the joint-seventh smallest winter peak – tied with 2007.”

However, just like those prophesied ice-free deadlines which have ALL uneventfully passed us by, Carbon Brief’s analysis is built around a narrative, not facts (and since when is the “seventh-lowest” in anything newsworthy?).

When privy to the actual data, it is clear that Arctic sea ice extent didn’t peak on March 21 at 14.77 km2, as is the claim, but that it instead reached its 2021 maximum on March 11 with a reading of 14.95 km2–a reading which doesn’t even see it enter the top ten lowest maximum sea ice extent years since records began in 1979.



But it isn’t just Carbon Brief that has been found guilty of misleading the public; after all, the outlet is just one of many conduits for government agency obfuscation and agendas.

No, that “14.77 km2” figure originated from the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) at the University of Colorado Boulder, which is supported by NASA: two organizations that don’t even try to hide their BS anymore.

In an attempt to add weight to their ‘catastrophic melting Arctic claims,’ the NSIDC provides this image (shown below).

However, to anyone capable of critical through –so I guess not many– the picture it paints can hardly be construed as one of impending doom.


This NASA Blue Marble image shows Arctic sea ice on March 21, 2021, when the NSIDC (among others) claim sea ice reached its maximum extent for the year. Image credit: NSIDC / NASA Earth Observatory.

Additionally, if melting sea ice and rising sea-levels are your concern then it is far better to turn your attention to the Southern Pole which is home to 90 percent of Earth’s freshwater.

Satellite data reveals that sea ice extent around the southern pole has actually GROWN over the past 40+years.

Furthermore, a new study (Salame et al., 2021) reports that Southern Hemisphere sea ice has been creeping so far northwards since they year 2000 that it now extends well into the 54°S southern Chilean fjords, which is up to 100 km further north than the NSIDC’s previous extension limit estimates (55°S).

The paper considers sustained sub-zero °C temperatures to be the main reason sea ice has been forming during recent decades in all 13 of the Cordillera Darwin fjords analyzed.

Even our NSIDC friends can’t hide the EXPANDING Antarctic ice sheet in 2021:

MULTIPLE CORONAL MASS EJECTIONS INBOUND
MAY 18, 2021 CAP ALLON

Our planet’s magnetosphere is weaker than we’ve all realized.

G1-class geomagnetic storms are likely on May 18-19 as a pair of coronal mass ejections (CMEs) hit Earth’s magnetic field.
The two CMEs left the Sun on consecutive days: the first from sunspot AR2822 on May 13, the second from sunspot AR2823 on May 14.

Individually, the CMEs appear to be weak; however, they could easily add up to a geomagnetic storm when they arrive in quick succession, particularly given Earth’s ever-waning magnetic field, plus what we saw last week:


Additionally, a new sunspot (AR2824) is emerging over the Sun’s northeastern limb, and it is crackling with C-class flares.
NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory recorded this explosion at 0209 UT on May 18th:


A new sunspot (AR2824) is emerging. explosion recorded by NASA on May 18

As explained by Dr. Tony Phillips of spaceweather.com, the C1-class flare hurled a plume of plasma off the surface of the Sun, but not all the way into space. Most of the material fell back to the sun’s surface. Low level C-flares are simply not that powerful.

However, stronger flares might be in the offing, continues Dr. Phillips. This is a relatively large sunspot with the potential for explosive magnetic mixing around its Neptuned-sized dark core.


On May 17, Eduardo Schaberger Poupeau photographed the appearance of a new sunspot in the northeast limb of the Sun. He used a Maksutov 180 telescope and a ZWO 290MM camera with a Baader Solar Continuum filter.

GLOBAL BLACKOUT

Coronal Mass Ejections are enormous bursts of superheated gas (called plasma) ejecting from the Sun.
They are powerful eruptions driven by kinks in the solar magnetic field.

The resulting shocks ripple through the solar system, and can interrupt satellites and power grids here on Earth.

“[A big one] could essentially shut down the Industrial Revolution,” warns Weather Ecology Specialist, Frank Billingsley.
As our planet’s magnetosphere continues to wane (due to an ever-intensifying Grand Solar Minimum + a magnetic pole shift), CMEs are certain to impact our modern way of life–it’s only a matter of time.

As this newly developing Solar Cycle (25) continues to build, the level of threat it poses will build with it — between now and the cycle’s Solar Maximum (due around 2024/25), the threat of powerful plasma discharges will be ever-increasing.

CMEs get blown off the sun in all directions, meaning most don’t hit Earth; however, every so often an eruption is aimed right at us, and when that plasma cloud hits, a geomagnetic storm follows.

THE CARRINGTON EVENT

During Sept 1859, a powerful Earth-facing Coronal Mass Ejection was released from the Sun.

And even though our planet’s magnetosphere was full-strength at the time, the CME’s impact still managed to induce one of the largest geomagnetic storms on record.

The atmospheric activity was so vivid that people living in the mountainous regions of North America woke to start their day, believing it was morning, when in fact it was the middle of the night.


Frederic Edwin Church’s 1865 painting “Aurora Borealis.” Inspired by the Carrington Event.

In England, electrical currents surged through Victorian-era telegraph wires, in some cases causing sparks and setting telegraph offices on fire.


A magnetogram recorded at the Greenwich Observatory in London during the Carrington Event of 1859.

QUEBEC, 1989

Quebec was hit by a relatively modest CME in 1989 –around half as strong as the Carrington Event– yet the storm still took out enough of the grid to keep the entire province in the dark for twelve hours.

The storm resulted in the Hydro-Quebec power grid going down, which left millions of people without power in the middle of the winter when the average temperature was below freezing.

“It was the biggest geomagnetic storm of the Space Age,” says Dr. David Boteler, head of the Space Weather Group at Natural Resources Canada. “March 1989 has become the archetypal disturbance for understanding how solar activity can cause blackouts.”

“The March 1989 blackout was a wake-up call for our industry,” says Dr. Emanuel Bernabeu of PJM, a regional utility that coordinates the flow of electricity in 13 US states.

“Now we take geomagnetically induced currents (GICs) very seriously.”

The intensifying global cool-down observed over the past 5-or-so years will cause its own level destruction and strife, but this is more of a gradual-build, and I believe it is a grid-down scenario that will hit first.

It isn’t hard to imagine the sheer panic that would immediately ensue as the masses watch their just-in-time delivery systems fail and realize they can no longer purchase food/medication.

People are utterly dependent on ‘the system’ to survive, but they have no idea how fragile it is.

Prepare your family for what’s coming.

Move away from the modern mollycoddling slave model designed to keep you under the thumb and dumb, and instead head towards a life of self-sufficiency and freedom.

Striving for a meaningful purpose is the key to happiness, and what better purpose can there be than to prepare your loved ones for our civilizations collapse.

The signs are all around us, the cracks are already appearing — our modern society is no different to all those that fell before it. In fact, we have worked ourselves into a position where we far more vulnerable.

Modern humans have no idea how to grow their own food or source their own water. We live like spoon-fed zoo animals, bored and listless, walking from one dead-end job to the other, completely disconnected from the reality around us.

We believe meaningless qualifications are our ticket “up,” and that working every hour under the Sun to make a handful of powerful elites even richer is a good use of our limited time. This is a ruse. This is a slave model. We miss out on family, and we have no time or energy left at the end of the day to obtain any useful skills, or enlightenment.

And when those zoo cage doors are flung open –by some cataclysmic event– and we’re all suddenly forced into the wild to fend for ourselves, what do you think happens? The natural world may be beautiful, but she is also brutal and unforgiving. To put it bluntly, 90+ percent of the population would be dead within a month.

Prepare accordingly— learn the facts, relocate if need be, and grow your own. And in the meantime, let’s see how Earth’s magnetic field deals with these two minor CMEs forecast to hit either May 18 or 19.

The COLD TIMES are returning, the mid-latitudes are REFREEZING, in line with the great conjunction, historically low solar activity, cloud-nucleating Cosmic Rays, and a meridional jet stream flow (among other forcings).

Both NOAA and NASA appear to agree, if you read between the lines, with NOAA saying we’re entering a ‘full-blown’ Grand Solar Minimum in the late-2020s, and NASA seeing this upcoming solar cycle (25) as “the weakest of the past 200 years”, with the agency correlating previous solar shutdowns to prolonged periods of global cooling here.

Furthermore, we can’t ignore the slew of new scientific papers stating the immense impact The Beaufort Gyre could have on the Gulf Stream, and therefore the climate overall.

Wow! I was able to correctly translate that entire little item in your second post of this morning, about Sinabung's eruption, before I read the provided translation. I realize that this one was pretty obvious but I took Spanish in high school and have never used it at all. I graduated in 1961!

Anyway, as always, thanks TxGal, for keeping all this information posted for us. You do such a great job of it! Some of Diamond's videos don't show up for me when I go to his site so I appreciate those links extra lots! (:
You're welcome, Martinhouse! There's so much in the news that has most people's attention focused elsewhere, and I think that's why the GSM news has been a little light of late. Somehow I don't think that will last forever. The weather is still odd and seems to be getting more odd as time passes.

We're waiting for our next rounds of deluges to begin, hopefully without any severe issues. As it is now, what we do have planted in the garden isn't looking very good. It's too wet and at times too cool for good growth. We've also had more cloudly days than sunny, and that's not helping, either.

Heck, you're doing better than I with the High School Spanish! I can understand a good chunk of spoken Spanish, and read enough to usually get the gist of what is being said, but my speaking of the language isn't good at all. Interestingly, we learned Castillian in our HS, I think it's like the 'Queen's English' and a different dialect than is spoken here....in our area it's mostly those from Mexico who I'm around and there are some differences. Thankfully, there are similiarities :-)

TxGal, my Spanish teacher (this was in Minnesota) told us about the differences in Castillian Spanish, but she taught us the Mexican pronunciations and expressions because she said that's what we'd be most likely to use. You're right about the "Queen's English" but she also said there is the Castillian lisp because way back when, some king or prince had a speech impediment and the lisp was adopted by people so as to appear that they didn't notice the impediment. Sort of a different version of the emperor's new clothes, maybe.

I was never around the language enough to catch more than a few words of what others were saying, just barely enough to know what they were talking about. It was just enough to figure out which people I did not want to spend much time with!

Okay, 'nuff of that.....back to the thread topic!

50 Beluga Whales Trapped by Thick Arctic Sea Ice - Electroverse


Articles Extreme Weather GSM
50 BELUGA WHALES TRAPPED BY THICK ARCTIC SEA ICE
MAY 18, 2021 CAP ALLON

A total of 50 beluga whales remain stuck in the Chukchi Penkigngei Bay, Russia.

It is assumed that they have been in “ice captivity” since January due to an exceptionally thick and fast ice build-up, but specialists only spotted the animals in April.


According to zoologist Grigory Tsidulko, the whales have a chance of surviving until the spring thaw, which is expected by mid-June.

The Arctic animals are well-adapted to long periods without food, explained Tsidulko — they live on fat reserves attained during the summer months.

View: https://youtu.be/yGPvehdSsL0
Run time is 0:40

However, the situation has recently turned more serious –due to the length of time the animals have been trapped and the depletion of the fish reserves– and as a result, the scientists have begun feeding the whales.

A similar event occurred in the mid-1980s, but that ended in a large-scale tragedy.

In 1984, thousands of beluga whales became trapped in ice captivity. Throughout the winter and spring, local residents used chainsaws to prevent the hole from completely closing up. An icebreaker was even called to help lead the animals out, but unfortunately the belugas did not immediately follow the ship, and many perished.

Our friends at The New York Times reported on the story in early 1985:

“The icebreaker Moskva raced against time and plunging temperatures to reach the whales before they suffocated or starved. But an east wind kicked up and jammed the narrow strait with ice up to 12 feet thick, leaving only small pools of open water for the white whales to surface for breathing.

“The belugas had begun to perish and, taking on a full load of fuel, the Moskva plunged into the ice, guided by special spotter planes.

“With time the whales became fully accustomed to the ship. ‘They began coming up to the ship themselves,’ Izvestia reported [a Government newspaper]. ‘They hemmed it about from all sides. They were happy as children, jumping, spreading out all over the ice field.’

“Finally, in late February, the ship led the belugas to the open sea.”


Today’s echoing of the 1984 tragedy is a clear indication of how far we are from an “ice free Arctic.”

Such scaremongering is patently absurd, and hasn’t a shred of observational data to back it up.

It is a pie in the Arctic-sky fantasy, and one dreamed-up by the ‘plotters on high’ in order to keep the purblind masses controlled and compliant. Anthropogenic global warming is not a threat, nor will it ever be a threat — the theory is a tool to reshape the global order of things. All you lemmings blindly following these clandestinely placed commands are marching straight off the cliff, and you’re taking the rest of us with you.

Wake up already.



Today, the International Energy Agency (IEA) has said that no new fossil fuel boilers should be sold from 2025 if the world is to achieve net-zero emissions by the middle of this century.

This is just one of 400 steps on the road to net-zero proposed by the agency in a recent report, which also includes the ban of new petrol and diesel cars around the world would by 2035.

The IEA says that from now, there is no place for new coal, oil or gas exploration or supplies.

IEA Executive Director, Fatih Birol paints an idyllic picture: “The IEA’s pathway to this brighter future brings a historic surge in clean energy investment that creates millions of new jobs and lifts global economic growth. Moving the world on to that pathway requires strong and credible policy actions from governments, underpinned by much greater international co-operation.”

In reality though, such measures would mean energy rationing and fuel poverty for hundreds of millions –maybe even billions– of people. Renewables will NOT be able to handle the demand, and this, in turn, will lead to immense, self-inflicted suffering.


“GRETA IS NOTHING BUT A PAWN FOR THE LEFT”

Below are a few excerpts from an article by Candace Owens:

For years, the world has been led to believe that Greta Thunberg, (the 18-year-old climate activist who’d become a darling of the far-Left for her radical positions on climate change), is just an innocent child.

If you believed the media’s portrayal, she was nothing but an impassioned little girl in pigtails, so scared about the future of the planet that she dropped out of school to dedicate herself fully to the environmental cause.

Any person who questioned Thunberg’s remarkable rise to prominence was immediately stonewalled. After all, who would dare question the intentions of a child?

In 2019, TIME magazine even named her the most influential person in the world.

But this tool kit, and her “Freudian tweet,” pulled back the curtain, revealing Greta to be far from some indiscriminate, independent activist — but rather a young woman who is part of calculating, intentional, and contrived political apparatus.

[Re “this tool kit,” Thunberg was recently being taken to task by citizens of India. She had accidentally tweeted out a “tool kit,” that was intended for her eyes only. The contents included a step-by-step guide instructing her to draw attention to farmer protests in India through various social media measures. This “tool kit,” which was not intended for public view and was quickly scrubbed from her feed, revealed specific dates that Greta was instructed to tweet and post to Instagram in an effort to inspire outrage in a country in which she does not live, regarding a cause she presumably knows little about. Prominent Indians were sickened by what they perceived to be a globalist effort to destabilize their country].

Owens continues:

Anyone with a thinking brain figured this out long ago. But thinking brains were in short supply on the Left while Donald Trump was in office. Completely blinded by their obsession with hating Trump, any person who opposed him was quickly elevated, whether their credentials warranted such status or not. Virtually anyone ascribing to the “Orange Man Bad” philosophy was propped up, heaped with praise, and hailed as a hero, without any further analysis of their qualifications or motivations.

And so Greta, who at times seemed more opposed to Trump than climate change itself, quickly climbed the ranks with each scathing one-liner sent the President’s way.

This rise to prominence would be shocking if it weren’t now a routine occurrence in the Leftist echo chamber.

For four years, the Left propped up any and every person willing to oppose Donald Trump, with a direct correlation seen between the fervor of their hatred and the rapidity of their climb.

You see, the reason Greta is important isn’t because of who she is, but because of what she represents. Thunberg is the embodiment of the woke activist portrayed by the media as an up-by-the-bootstraps, ideologically pure hero. In reality, she is like so many before her — little more than a pawn in the Left’s larger game.

3-6 inches of snow forecasted for us here in Montana, Drummond area, for Wed thru Friday. It’s not highly unusual I don’t think. Actual forecast for Drummond is 4-8 inches. Up to 10 in the mountains. Could be us. We got 6 inches here at 6400 feet last year on June 6th. I was sure hoping summer was here. Was 76 yesterday. Got a slight sunburn yesterday but it sure was a nice day.

I ordered a 9x28 Climapod Aluminum frame greenhouse and hoping to take delivery in the next couple weeks. It has 4mm double wall polycarbonate panels supports 12 inches of snow load. We are going to build a wooden floor to mount it on and put a good woodstove in it. I am pretty sure here we can keep it growing all winter. Coldest temps we have had over night this high up during the winter was 7 below over night Once and 12 below overnight. It hit 42 below that same night down in the valley. We keep snow longer up here but don’t have to deal with the extreme dips.
Sure is a lot different than where we lived in AK having days and days of 40-50 below day and night. I really really think I can grow tomatoes and greens all winter.

“There is really an extreme amount of snow,” said Aleš Hnízdo, operations director of Labská bouda in the Giant Mountains.

The surroundings of labská Bouda in the giant mountains remain covered with a large layer of snow even in mid-May. The situation is being exploited by cross-country skiers.

There is even so much snow that even a snow blower was unable to bite through the huge barriers to the Elbe shed.

“According to driver Jaroslav Palivoda, who has been milling the road for 37 years, he has experienced this only three or four times in all those years.

On Thursday, the snow blower finally bit through the snow barriers at the Hanče and Vrbata mounds.

Some anecdotal weather news: here in Northern Michigan we’ve got a nice stretch of warm weather in the 80s, which is giving everyone the false impression that summer has arrived. But looking at the 10-day forecast, it’s only a brief spike. The end of the month and first week of June is solidly stuck in the 60s. That’s about 10-15 degrees below normal.

Ktrapper, even if you could grow only hardy root crops in the winter, that greenhouse sounds like it would be wonderful!
We will be trying to purchase a skid steer for our small operation in July and hopefully if we can find one I will be preparing a level pad for the greenhouse build and we will be trying to get it up before winter. If we are successful with that plan I will post some pictures.

I watched a video of a farmer in Nebraska who grows citrus trees in his greenhouse year round. He uses geothermal to heat it and cool it with, meaning he buried about 200 feet or more of what looked like 8 inch galvanized pipe in the ground and circulates the greenhouse air underground below the frost line to keep the greenhouse above freezing in the winter and keep it from over heating in the summer.

I want to experiment with the same idea here.
Although I think I may have to put the pipe a fair bit deeper here. I need a temperature probe to keep a record of how deep the ground freezes here in the winter to give me a idea of how deep to bury the pipe. I found 6 inch diameter corrugated plastic pipe in 100 foot rolls from Lowes. I want to make air conditioning for my cabin using the same method.

"Extreme" May Snowfall hits the Czech Republic, as ANOTHER Arctic front Descends on Europe - Electroverse


Extreme Weather GSM
“EXTREME” MAY SNOWFALL HITS THE CZECH REPUBLIC, AS ANOTHER ARCTIC FRONT DESCENDS ON EUROPE
MAY 19, 2021 CAP ALLON

Vast regions of the Czech Republic (Czechia), including Labská bouda in the Krkonoše Mountains, remain buried under a “large layer of snow even in mid-May,” reports krkonossky.denik.cz.

There is so much snow, in fact, that not even a cutter has managed to bite through the pack.

The vehicle’s driver, Jaroslav Palivoda, who has been plowing this particularly road for almost 40 years, said he has experienced this level of accumulation on only three previous occasions, and never so late in the season.


Snow cutter battling the elements in Czechia, in May.

Aleš Hnízdo, operations director of Labská bouda in the Giant Mountains, added: “There is really an extreme amount of snow” this year.


Rare and substantial May snowfall.

Responsible for the rare Czech snowfall is a descending Arctic air mass, one swept unusually-far south by a weak and wavy meridional jet stream flow–a setup known to increase during times of low solar activity.



And while northern Russia may be enjoying anomalous heat of late as it resides “under” the jet stream –a dramatic swing from the record freeze it had been suffering since mid-December– the majority of Europe remains “above” the jet, where it has been for months, which sees it open to frigid polar air streaming down from the north.

Europe will switch too, eventually; it will soon reside “under” the jet stream and be open to hot African plumes. But a note to all you alarmists, these inevitable heatwaves will NOT be proof of anthropogenic global warming. You do not need to arrange marches and yell at every petroleum-powered vehicle that passes by. No, these bursts of warmth will actually add weight to the Grand Solar Minimum theory, and, furthermore, they should be enjoyed.

Wavy jet streams are prevalent under times of low solar activity, and the Sun has just experienced its weakest Solar Cycle (24) of the past 100+ years. Regardless of what side of the jet stream you’re on, and immaterial of whether you’re enjoying anomalous heat or suffering unusual cold, a weakening of the jet streams is the takeaway here.

Other forcings, such as increased cloud nucleation and stalling ocean currents, lead to overall “global cooling,” but this observed increase in the buckling of the jets is a tell-tale sign of reduced solar output.
Europe can’t seem to catch a break.

Below are the forecast temperature anomalies for today, May 19 (courtesy of the GFS).

Also note that pocket of heat in northwest Russia, and the stark divide running between the two air masses.

Looking a little further ahead, northwest Russia will soon succumb to the cold as yet another powerful Arctic front engulfs the majority of the European continent:

MAY 26:


This setup is forecast to persist for the remainder of May, and could actually intensify:

MAY 30:


Rare late-May frosts look set to hit key growing regions, such as France and the Ukraine.

While unprecedented snowfall will continue to bury the continent’s higher elevations, even the northern UK.

These are the times we are living: ever-cooling temperatures and increasingly volatile “swings between extremes.”


Prepare for food shortages, inflation, and social unrest over the coming years.

The COLD TIMES are returning, the mid-latitudes are REFREEZING, in line with the great conjunction, historically low solar activity, cloud-nucleating Cosmic Rays, and a meridional jet stream flow (among other forcings).

"Giant" Late-May Snowstorm to unload feet of Powder across the Western U.S. - Electroverse



Crop Loss Extreme Weather GSM
“GIANT” LATE-MAY SNOWSTORM TO UNLOAD FEET OF POWDER ACROSS THE WESTERN U.S.
MAY 19, 2021 CAP ALLON

A historic and long-duration snowstorm is set to unleash feet of powder on the higher elevations of Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Oregon and Washington state this week, with unprecedented inches settling at lower-elevations, too.

AccuWeather meteorologists say that snowfall of this volume over such an extensive area is highly unusual.

Daily high temperatures have plummeted a whopping 40-60 degrees Fahrenheit from their Monday peak, and could tumble even further as the weekend approaches:

MAY 21:

GFS 2m Temperatures for May 21 [tropicaltidbits.com].

MAY 22:

GFS 2m Temperatures for May 22 [tropicaltidbits.com].

Below is a look at the temperature anomalies expected across the western United States on Saturday.

The departures look set to plunge 20 degrees Celsius below the norm across vast regions.

MAY 22:

GFS 2m Temperature Anomalies for May 22 [tropicaltidbits.com].

Winter storm watches began in parts of Montana on Tuesday in anticipation of the rare late-season storm.

In Great Falls, for example, the average last snow date (of 0.1 inches+) is May 10 — the forecast for this week sees as much as 8+ inches falling as late as May 21/22.

“[This] it is not a very common event,” says senior Accuweather meteorologist Brian Wimer, in the understatement of the year.

Since 1920, there have only been five years with storms delivering 8+ inches to Great Falls: “The biggest of these storms spanned May 28-29, 1989, and that system brought 11.6 inches of snow to the city,” continues Wimer; “the other years with storms that brought 8 inches or more of snow during May in the city were in 1956, 1967, 1983 and 2000.”

This will not only be a “whopper of a snowstorm,” but will also be a large one in terms of overall coverage of accumulating snow.

As explained by AccuWeather’s Brett Anderson, “Snow levels with this storm are likely to dip as low as 3,000 feet in parts of central Montana as the combination of fresh cold air moving in and the action of wind blowing uphill and squeezing out moisture will make for a substantial snowfall.”

Accumulating snow is expected to fall on an area more than 70,000 square miles in central and western Montana alone from Wednesday to Saturday:


GFS Total Snowfall May 19 – May 24 [tropicaltidbits.com].

Also note that vast portions of Idaho and Wyoming are set to receive substantial accumulations.

Rare late-season inches are even expected on the Cascades of Washington and Oregon into Thursday, stretching all the way down through the Sierras.

And looking north of the border, and into Canada, large parts of British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan are also on for impressive totals through the remainder of the month:


GFS Total Snowfall May 19 – May 31 [tropicaltidbits.com].

This is late-May that we’re headed into.

This extreme freeze event cannot be explained by the nonsensical umbrella term “climate change.” No, the prevalence of Arctic air funneling down from the Arctic is due to low solar activity–namely its weakening of the jet streams.

This week’s monster of a storm will likely join the ranks of the top 10 greatest impact snowfalls for the region of all-time, according to AccuWeather forecasters. As they explain: the NWS ranks snowstorms on a scale called MontSIS, which takes into accounts snowstorms that unleash more than 7 inches and factors in the area impacted.

For comparison, the May 9-13, 1983, storm that dropped up to 35 inches of snow is ranked 11th of all-time for the state, according to the National Weather Service in Great Falls.

“This will be a long-duration snowstorm for the northern Rockies with the heaviest snow in central and western Montana likely to fall from Wednesday evening to Thursday evening,” Anderson said.

“During this period, snowfall rates of 1-3 inches per hour are highly probable just east of the Continental Divide. The heaviest snowfall is likely to be in the Glacier National Park area of Montana, with 2-3 feet likely in the higher elevations of the park and locally greater amounts possible,” added Anderson.

Laughably, this is the same Glacier National Park that prophesied that its glaciers would be gone by 2020 due to catastrophic global warming (see link below), and here we are, in May 2021, with feet of snow in the forecast.


Heavy snow is also expected over the higher elevations of Yellowstone National Park in northwestern Wyoming.

“These parks are popular tourist destinations and people planning on venturing into area could be turned away or possibly face the risk of being stranded,” continued Anderson.

“The heavy and wet nature of the snow from this storm is likely to lead to breaking branches and falling trees, and when that occurs there is the likelihood of power outages,” Anderson warned.

IMPACT ON FARMERS

Farmers are working hard to try and prevent these late-May frost from further damaging crops.

“I reached out to a couple farmers, they are concerned for sure,” said Larry Davis, a director at the Ontario Federation of Agriculture for Brant, Haldimand and Norfolk.

“The farmers have been planting sweet corn covered under plastic, the frost will slow it down but it won’t kill it.”

Davis explains that it is crucial that crops are planted at the proper time so they can be ready for harvest. However, this has become a challenging process with the temperature swings of late: “I’ve been around for many years and this is not normal,” Davis says.

With spring being a transitional season, temperature fluctuations are to be expected; however, what we’re seeing this May is something else.

Environment Canada meteorologist Gerald Cheng said the Norfolk region of Ontario is on for its the coldest May since 1967. Back then, average temp was 9.2 degrees Celsius. To date, May 2021 has had an average temperature of 9.5 C, with around two weeks left of anomalous cold.

“Right now, we are looking at the lowest seasonal temperatures, it’s been like that since the 5th,” said Cheng.

Looking ahead, unpredictable swings are set to continue for the remainder of the month.

Below is the outlook for May 26:

Record Breaking Cold Blasts Australia and Canada: "GLOBAL" Cooling - Electroverse


Extreme Weather GSM
RECORD BREAKING COLD BLASTS AUSTRALIA AND CANADA: “GLOBAL” COOLING
MAY 20, 2021 CAP ALLON

Arctic air continues to descend unusually-far south, while Antarctic air continues to ride anomalously-far north. The culprit is low solar activity, namely its weakening of the jet streams, and the upshot is COOLING across the lower-latitudes (where us humans reside).

AUSTRALIA

Swathes of Australia are shivering through a record-breaking cold snap, with the frosty mornings set to continue across eastern parts through the weekend.

The mercury in Sydney dropped to 8.6C (47.5F) at 7am early Thursday, marking the fifth-straight day of mornings below 9C (48.2F).

Not since the year 1967 has Sydney experienced a colder streak in May.

Back then, the temperature fell below 9C (48.2F) for six nights in a row.

In addition, not only was this the city’s coldest run of May nights in 54 years, it was “the coldest run of nights this early in the year in 66 years,” a Bureau of Meteorology spokesperson said.

In Sydney’s west, it was just 1C (33.8F) in Camden, 2C (35.6F) in Campbelltown, 3C (37.4F) in Penrith and 5C (41F) at Olympic Park.

As reported by news.com.au, temperatures in eastern Australia will sink again on Friday morning.

Melbourne is set to fall to 7C on both Friday and Saturday, while Canberra will shiver through readings around the freezing mark, maybe a little below, until at least Sunday.

Frosts will sweep parts of the Southern Downs in Queensland, through the northern ranges of NSW, the ACT, northern Victoria and Tasmania — so protect any tender crops.

Looking ahead, it’ll be the West’s turn to cop a polar blast beginning May 24:

CANADA

It’s been a cold week across much of Canada, too.

In Kamloops and the Okanagan, British Columbia record-breaking overnight lows have been logged.

A return to near-zero temperatures was observed overnight, a stark contrast to the daytime highs of 30C (86F) witnessed this past weekend (another example of the Grand Solar Minimum and the Swings between Extremes).

A myriad of cold temperature records fell on the morning of May 19, according to Environment Canada data.

Kamloops recorded a low of 1.3C (34.3F) at its airport, a reading which smashed the previous benchmark of 2.1C (35.8F) set back in 2003.

While Penticton plunged to a low of -0.8C (30.5F), also annihilating its old record of 0.3C (32.5F), also set in 2003.

Environment Canada meteorologist Doug Lundquist said hopefully it wasn’t “cold enough for long enough” to do any frost damage to recently planted summer crops.

Weather statements were issued Monday and Tuesday by Environment Canada for snow on mountain passes.

Lundquist says the Coquihalla Summit on Highway 5 and Allison Pass on Highway 3 received snow. While flakes were reported on the Kootenay Pass and the Rogers Pass Wednesday night as the weather system moved east.

“There has been snow in the higher terrain, and with even just a little bit overnight, people are travelling and aren’t used to it already,” Lundquist says.

North America’s unprecedented May chill doesn’t look to be shifting anytime soon:


The story is the same in Europe:


2021 European Cold Spring Does Not Mean Climate Change Is Fake,” reads a recent Forbes headline.

But surely, by now, in the year 2021, if ‘Catastrophic Global Heating’ was indeed a real thing, shouldn’t it be more obvious?

Genuinely, why hasn’t the constant need for the theory to be pointed out to people become redundant?

Shouldn’t ‘Terrifying Terra Firma Broiling’ be smacking us all in the face each and every time we step outside our front doors? Shouldn’t rising sea levels have washed away low-lying cities? Wasn’t the Arctic supposed to have been ice free years ago…


Why are people so easily fooled, so trusting of authority?

I guess it’s because of the ‘factory line’ model incorporated by the modern education system.

School exists to create compliant little worker bees. It doesn’t teach a goddamn thing of real use in the real world. What children are taught is to ‘just get the work done’ on subjects they have limited-to-no interest in. Get the work done well and you will be rewarded with an A, or a gold sticker, or a pat on the back, or whatever…!

Kids are given no other option, and are taught no alternative than the 9-5 slave model.

Life has so much more to offer than government indoctrination and political propaganda.

Anthropogenic global warming is a lie — the most recent lie in a long, long list of obfuscating ploys in order to keep the masses controlled.

The COLD TIMES are returning, the mid-latitudes are REFREEZING, in line with the great conjunction, historically low solar activity, cloud-nucleating Cosmic Rays, and a meridional jet stream flow (among other forcings).

Both NOAA and NASA appear to agree, if you read between the lines, with NOAA saying we’re entering a ‘full-blown’ Grand Solar Minimum in the late-2020s, and NASA seeing this upcoming solar cycle (25) as “the weakest of the past 200 years”, with the agency correlating previous solar shutdowns to prolonged periods of global cooling here.

World's largest iceberg A-76 breaks off of Antarctica

Antarctica ice berg
© ESA/Earth Observation
The humongous chunk of ice calved from the western side of the Ronne Ice Shelf in Antarctica.

An enormous iceberg, a little bigger than the state of Rhode Island, has broken off of Antarctica.

The finger-shaped chunk of ice, which is roughly 105 miles (170 kilometers) long and 15 miles (25 kilometers) wide, was spotted by satellites as it calved from the western side of Antarctica's Ronne Ice Shelf, according to the European Space Agency. The berg is now floating freely on the Weddell Sea, a large bay in the western Antarctic where explorer Ernest Shackleton once lost his ship, the Endurance, to pack ice.

The 1,667-square-mile (4,320 square kilometers) iceberg — which now the world's biggest and has been called A-76, after the Antarctic quadrant where it was first spotted — was captured by the European Union's Copernicus Sentinel, a two-satellite constellation that orbits Earth's poles. The satellites confirmed an earlier observation made by the British Antarctic Survey, which was the first organization to notice the breakaway.

Because the ice shelf that this berg calved from was already floating on water, the event won't directly impact sea levels. However, ice shelves help to slow the flow of glaciers and ice streams into the sea; so indirectly, the loss of parts of an ice shelf eventually contributes to rising seas, according to the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC).

Comment: Note that these claims of 'rising seas', like global warming, has failed to materialize: Kiribati and China to develop farm land in Fiji, land had been predicted to 'disappear under a rising ocean'

The NSIDC also says that the continent of Antarctica, which is warming at a faster pace than the rest of the planet, holds enough frozen water to raise global sea levels by 200 feet (60 meters). Scientists don't think that human-induced climate change caused the calving of A-76 or its nearby predecessor, A-74.

Comment:
It's rather curious that, for once, they're not attributing this to 'AGW', and that may be because calving tends to occur due to the growth of ice. It is true that some areas of Antarctica have been found to be warming and glaciers have indeed been melting, however any warming seems to be coming from below, seemingly because of a rise in activity from undersea volcanoes; meanwhile the temperature above ground is cooling so significantly it's killing wildlife.

"A76 and A74 are both just part of natural cycles on ice shelves that hadn't calved anything big for decades," Laura Gerrish, a researcher at the British Antarctic Survey, wrote on Twitter. "It's important to monitor the frequency of all iceberg calving, but these are all expected for now."

Comment: Suddenly natural cycles are a thing? It's notable that little happened for decades, when the planet did experience a period of brief warming. This is known to occur before temperatures plunge, as they are doing now: Global cooling to replace warming trend that started 4,000 years ago - Chinese scientists

Satellites will continue to track the new iceberg, much as they did for A-68A, the previous title holder for the world's largest iceberg. After splitting from the Antarctic ice sheet in 2017, A-68A was set loose by ocean currents in 2020 and came perilously close to colliding with South Georgia Island, a breeding ground for seals and penguins. The rogue berg shattered into a dozen pieces before it caused any harm, Live Science previously reported.

Comment: Note that this occurred only 4 years ago, reflecting the possible uptick in calving activity.

The Ronne Ice Shelf, which birthed the recent iceberg, is mostly spared from influxes of warm water that disrupt the Antarctic's natural cycle of ice calving and regrowth. But not all parts of West Antarctica have been quite so lucky. Live Science reported in April that the Thwaites Glacier, or the "Doomsday Glacier," was discovered to be melting faster than previously thought. This was due to a warm water current from the east whittling away at the vital "pinning points" that anchor the shelf to the land.

DELHI, INDIA SUFFERS COLDEST MAY DAY IN 70 YEARS + EARTH HAS COOLED 0.8C SINCE 2016
MAY 20, 2021 CAP ALLON

“Seldom is the public ever informed of these glaring discrepancies between basic science and what politicians and pop-scientists tell us. There is no Climate Emergency,” Dr. Roy Spencer.

India’s capital city Delhi usually experiences scorching temperatures in May.

Yesterday, however, a high of just 23.8C (74.8F) was registered — the city’s coldest May reading since 1951, and one some 16 degrees Celsius below the seasonal average.

The recent rains have also been record breaking.

According to the India Meteorological Department, the previous 24-hour rainfall record for the month of May was the 60mm received back on May 24, 1976. But Wednesday, May 19, 2021 just busted that benchmark.

“On Wednesday, the 12-hour rainfall was equivalent to the 24-hour average of May 24, 1976. As it is still raining, the 24-average for Wednesday is likely be much higher than that,” said a Met Official during yesterday afternoon.

View: https://twitter.com/nimmirastogi/status/1395202923861209089

The incessant rain, caused by cyclone Tauktae, assisted in driving down daytime temperature to their lowest maximum since 1951 at Safdarjung laboratory.

The maximum temperature remained low at most stations, reports timesofindia.com, with Jafarpur and Mungeshpur reporting the lowest at 22.6C (72.6F).

Kuldeep Srivastava, head of the Regional Weather Forecasting Center, said: “The maximum temperature dropped sharply due to the rain and cold and strong winds, plus the absence of sunlight. The remnants of cyclone Tauktae caused heavy rain in Rajastha, and moderate rain in Delhi-NCR, Haryana and western Uttar Pradesh.”

COSMIC RAYS, CLOUD SEEDING AND GLOBAL COOLING

Galactic Cosmic Rays are a mixture of high-energy photons and sub-atomic particles accelerated toward Earth by supernova explosions and other violent events in the cosmos. Solar Cosmic Rays are the same, though their source is the Sun.

Cosmic Rays hitting Earth’s atmosphere create aerosols which, in turn, seed clouds (Svensmark, et al).

This makes cosmic rays an important player in our weather and climate.

During Solar Minimum –such as the one we’re just exiting now– the Sun’s magnetic field weakens and the outward pressure of the solar wind decreases.

One of the impacts of such a setup is an influx of Cosmic Rays penetrating our planet’s atmosphere.

Moreover, what we appear to be entering here is actually Grand Solar Minimum (a multidecadal period of consistently low solar output), and if this is indeed the case then Cosmic Rays should be off headed off the charts, which is EXACTLY what researchers are starting to see:



In line with the obvious uptick in localized precipitation, increased cloud cover has another major implication for our climate.

“Clouds are the Earth’s sunshade,” explains Dr. Roy Spencer, “and if cloud cover changes for any reason, you have global warming, or global cooling.”

The upshot of our descent into this next Grand Solar Minimum will therefore be a cooling of the planet.

And we’re seeing the affects of this already.

Since the recent super-El Niño peak of 2016, global average temperatures have been nosediving, down some 0.8C from the begging of 2016 to April 2021.

All official datasets have picked up on the stark cooling:



This trend is expected to accelerate over the coming months and years as the Sun continues its relative shutdown.

The Solar Cycle we’re entering now (25) is forecast to be very similar to the historically weak cycle just gone (24), but it is expected to be just stop-off on the Sun’s descent into its next full-blown Grand Solar Minimum.

By many accounts, there will not be much of a Solar Cycle 26 to speak of.

This is the time-frame you have to prepare.

That is, if a powerful X-Flare doesn’t ‘get us’ first:


The COLD TIMES are returning, the mid-latitudes are REFREEZING, in line with the great conjunction, historically low solar activity, cloud-nucleating Cosmic Rays, and a meridional jet stream flow (among other forcings).

Both NOAA and NASA appear to agree, if you read between the lines, with NOAA saying we’re entering a ‘full-blown’ Grand Solar Minimum in the late-2020s, and NASA seeing this upcoming solar cycle (25) as “the weakest of the past 200 years”, with the agency correlating previous solar shutdowns to prolonged periods of global cooling here.

Furthermore, we can’t ignore the slew of new scientific papers stating the immense impact The Beaufort Gyre could have on the Gulf Stream, and therefore the climate overall.

From that last link in txgal’s post posted at 5:22:

“The Sun is capable of much MUCH more, particularly as it continues its ramp-up into Solar Cycle 25.

The Solar Maximum of 25 isn’t due until 2024/25, meaning we have 4-or-so years of increasing threat left to go.

“If indeed the severity of [this recent] geomagnetic event is caused by the weaker magnetic field of our planet, we are not going to get through this sunspot cycle,” concludes Davidson.

“The field can’t be taking hits from Nerf balls when bullets are about to start flying from the Sun in the next few years.”

Prepare for a grid-down scenario.

One is coming.

Soon.”

My comment:

short of nuclear or biological weaponized war, and maybe worse than those, what we may be headed for is possibly a solar storm worse than the Carrington Event. aka the Apocalypse.

Earth's Magnetic Field AGAIN Fails to Deal with a weak Solar Wind Stream, + "this is 1984" - Electroverse


Articles
EARTH’S MAGNETIC FIELD AGAIN FAILS TO DEAL WITH A WEAK SOLAR WIND STREAM, + “THIS IS 1984”
MAY 21, 2021 CAP ALLON

For the second time in a week, Earth’s waning magnetosphere has failed to deal with a weak ejection from the Sun. This is a sign of the times — a very disturbing one for those dependent on electrical infrastructure to survive (so 90% of the global population).

Once again, the so-called ‘experts’ had no idea that this was coming.

Or rather, they knew that a burst of solar wind was on its way, but expected the event to pass by unnoticed — they assumed our magnetic field could easily handle what was a weak coronal hole stream.

Coronal holes appear as dark areas in the solar corona. They look dark because they are cooler, less dense regions than the surrounding plasma and are regions of open, unipolar magnetic fields. The open configuration of the magnetic field in coronal holes allows particles to escape. These holes are sources of high speed solar wind streams, and when the particles from these streams hit Earth they can cause geomagnetic storms.

Yesterday evening, Earth found itself inside a stream of solar wind flowing at almost 600 km/s.

The wind originated from an equatorial hole in the Sun’s atmosphere:



The ‘experts’ had seemingly given up on this stream.

Not a single official source suggested anything more than a KP 2 was going to be the result.

In reality, the KP hit level 5:



Below is a look at the DSCOVR solar wind data for the past 3-days, courtesy of NOAA.

Looking specifically at the top red line, that jump up –located toward the right of the graph– is the geomagnetic effect of the impact.


DSCOVR solar wind (NOAA).

The solar wind stream was a relatively slow-traveling one, and as a result it was very late to arrive.

This is likely what caused official agencies, such as NOAA, to reject it out of hand, to pass it off as a non-event.

The fact that this wind delivered such a powerful impact is of immense cause for concern. Not that you’ll hear such a warning from the horses mouth anytime soon. After all, governments aren’t in the business of mindlessly scaring their populations. Their ultimate control method is fear, that is true, but it has to be a fully orchestrated fear — there will be something to be gained from it.

In the case of ‘catastrophic global warming,’ for example, the narrative goes:

Yes, the planet will indeed burn to a crisp. Yes, that means you and your loved ones will perish. BUT hold on now, this dire fate can be entirely avoided if you do exactly what we say. That is, if you surrender your freedoms; if you give-up your cheap, reliable energy; and –the latest measure being proposed– if you endure ‘climate lockdowns.’

Nothing is off the table here.

This is 1984.

And our ‘powers that be’ are now openly suggesting measures that a mere 18 months ago would have been considered the barmiest of conspiracy theories.

A recent bought-and-paid-for propaganda piece–I mean, “study”–said that the world needs the equivalent of a Pandemic Lockdown every two years to meet the carbon emission goals outline in the Paris Climate Agreement.

Of course, China can still keep pumping it out. I mean, the rest of the planet is expected to go cold turkey but the Chinese government –the instigators of the past two global f-ups– are permitted to do whatever the hell they like — the benefit of having the UN in your back pocket.

Thankfully though, CO2 induced global warming isn’t a real threat — because if it were, we would all die anyway, regardless of extreme measures we took, due to our passive smoking of China’s huge coal-fired stacks.

In 2020, China built over three times as much coal plant capacity as the rest of the world. It commissioned almost 40GW over the year, the equivalent to building more than one large plant every week.

Furthermore, recent research also showed that 73GW of new coal power projects were started in China through December 31st — this is five times as much as in all other countries combined.

Our so-called leaders are completely ignorant to the game the Chinese regime is playing here. They are so painfully stupid, so weak, and far too busy over-appeasing fringe communities to recognize the true threat to our society. China’s goal here appears to be the destruction of western economies. But to exactly what end? War?

“We have failed to understand in the past that we can’t have tackling climate change as a side issue,” said that absurd ‘climate lockdown’ study’s lead author, Corinne Le Quéré. “Every strategy and every plan from every government must be consistent with tackling climate change.”

But according to the data, the pandemic lockdown had precisely zero impact on atmospheric CO2 levels:


However, the threat posed by the China is, of course, dwarfed by that of the Sun.

The fact that Earth’s ever-waning magnetosphere hasn’t been able to handle the past two minor perturbations is a genuine reason to keep you up at night.

In the year 2000, we knew the magnetic field had lost 10 percent of its strength since the 1800s.

Another 5 percent was lost by 2010.

Further accelerations occurred in recent years, 2015 and 2017, but we laymen were not privy to any additional loss data–with guesses on why that might be quickly sending you down a conspiracy rabbit hole.

Given the last solid data point we have –that of 2010– our magnetic field should have handled these past two events far better — the field is obviously far weaker than we’ve all realized.

What happens when that X-class solar flare is launched in our direction?

Well, it’s back to the Stone Age, instantly.

That’s no power.

No communication.

No Googling “how-tos?”

No delivery systems.

No food.

Just darkness.

I’m prepared.

Are you…?

May snow in Coleville, Calif.

Tonya Daugherty was visiting the region from North Carolina and wasn't expecting snow during her trip to the Sierra.

"Nobody back home is going to believe this," she said.

The late spring Sierra storm even caught locals off guard. They heard about the winter storm advisory but didn't expect to see a winter wonderland this late in May.

"I'm used to the snow but I'm not used to the snow when it should be almost summer," said Mike Lake.

"Usually the weather is really nice during this time of year but I guess it just decided to up and dump on us randomly," Talia Moore said.

But not everyone was surprised. Scott Lee says he's seen snowfall in the Sierra well into summer.

Run time is 2:42

"Very odd but it does happen. I've been up here in July and it snowed," said Scott.

Marty Lee came without a jacket, not knowing snow would make an appearance during her trip.

"Yup, it's snowing and it's nice and we are loving it," said Marty.

She was given a heads up about the change in weather conditions but didn't believe it at first.

"No we don't have big jackets or anything, we went to Virginia City, Reno and everybody was like you better head back down the hill before it snows we are like 'it's not going to snow,' " said Marty.

It was an unusual taste of winter with a strong cold front bringing wind, rain and snow.

There is no fathoming the stupidity of those that blame such an event on global warming.

There is no mechanism in which a warming world leads to late-May snow and record low temperatures.

The actual mechanism –which I will keep repeating until it’s widely accepted by the mainstream– is that low solar activity is weakening the jet streams, reverting their usual tight ZONAL flow to a wavy MERIDIONAL one.

Click on the below link for more on that:


I’ve shown you the late-May snow, now onto those record low temperatures.

Western Washington was the coldest spot in the entire Lower 48 yesterday, a rare feat.

Temperatures dropped to “21 frosty degrees” at Hurricane Ridge on May 20, according to the NWS Seattle.

While a daily record low of 33F (0.55C) was logged at the Forks airport.

Record lows fell elsewhere across Montana over the past 24 hours, and also in California.

Many more cold benchmarks tumbled above the border, in Canada, with British Columbia the big winner.

Looking ahead, there appears to be more where that came from for many.

Here are your temperature anomalies for Saturday and Sunday:

And here is your late-May snowfall — nothing to see here:

This meridional jet stream flow is responsible for the extremes we’re seeing. It is culpable for both the heat currently being enjoyed in northern Russia (yes, warmth is something to be enjoyed–don’t let MSM spin fool you into thinking otherwise), and also the unusual late spring chills begin suffered at the lower-latitudes.

We’re seeing the Arctic effectively expand south.

Indeed, the Arctic circle does appear to be warming slightly as tropical warmth is more-regularly transported northwards, but the lower-latitudes (where us humans reside) are witnessing a dramatic cool down as all that displaced Arctic air is forced southwards.

World governments should deem the latter a cause for concern, not the former.

Research shows blocking persistence increases when solar activity is low — this causes weather patterns to become locked in place at high and intermediate latitudes for prolonged periods of time.

The historically low solar activity we’ve seen over the past decade-or-so has exaggerated this effect. Reduced solar output alone explains why we’re seeing regions become unseasonably hot or cold / dry or rainy. “Climate Change” is not a viable explainer for this phenomenon. Carbon dioxide doesn’t posses such magical powers.

Mikhaël Schwander, et al, 2017: “The zonal flow characteristic of westerly types is reduced under low solar activity as the continental flow for easterly and northerly types is enhanced. This is also confirmed by the higher blocking frequency over Scandinavia under low solar activity. The 247-year-long analysis of the 11-year solar cycle impact on late winter European weather patterns suggests a reduction in the occurrence of westerly flow types linked to a reduced mean zonal flow under low solar activity. Based on this observational evidence, we estimate the probability to have cold conditions in winter over Europe to be higher under low solar activity than under high activity.”

This research doesn’t even get into the influx of Cosmic Rays during times of low solar activity, and the impact this has on both cloud nucleation and volcanic activity–with an uptick of each resulting in overall global cooling.

As record heat scorches Russia and Canada, climate alarm bells ring,” reports the Washington Post today.

But where were such rags over the previous 4 months, when large swathes of Russia were suffering a prolonged winter of extreme cold where the mercury regularly dropped to -50C (-58F) and -60C (-76F)–some of the lowest temperatures ever recorded in the northern hemisphere?

How, for example, does the WP explain the tens of thousands of reindeer that perished this year due to the animals forage being locked under unusually thick ice? What does the publication have to say regarding members of a scientific expedition to the Yamal Penninsula and their call for “new urgent ideas to rescue herding in the region due to an increase in periodic glaciation.”

Basically, the WP wasn’t interested in central/northern Russia when it was stuck “above” the jet stream (and so open to surges of polar air). It only deems the region’s weather newsworthy now, as it resides “under” the stream (where it is susceptible to bursts of tropical warmth).

Tell me alarmists, did you hear a goddamn peep about Russia/Siberia in connection with climate change over the past four months? No? Well that’s because the area was suffering a record-breaking winter of extreme cold:


The obfuscation and cherry-picking is clear to see.

You just need to open your eyes.

Depressingly though, this is a big ask for many in a world of powerful propaganda.

Enjoy your weekend.

I’m off to transplant 500 “Golden Bantam” heirloom sweetcorn plugs.

Also, where are the mosquitoes this year…?

The COLD TIMES are returning, the mid-latitudes are REFREEZING, in line with the great conjunction, historically low solar activity, cloud-nucleating Cosmic Rays, and a meridional jet stream flow (among other forcings).

Both NOAA and NASA appear to agree, if you read between the lines, with NOAA saying we’re entering a ‘full-blown’ Grand Solar Minimum in the late-2020s, and NASA seeing this upcoming solar cycle (25) as “the weakest of the past 200 years”, with the agency correlating previous solar shutdowns to prolonged periods of global cooling here.

Furthermore, we can’t ignore the slew of new scientific papers stating the immense impact The Beaufort Gyre could have on the Gulf Stream, and therefore the climate overall.

About these “Earthweek” summaries, they are very decidedly into promoting the “Earth is warming up” panic, but thanks for posting them anyways since they do report on locusts and methane. Regarding the methane increase which is such a mystery to them, seems to me, that this would result from the core of the Earth warming up during the current grand solar minimum, such as we see in the increase in volcanic activity, which core warming activity would warm up seabeds, thus warming up deposits of methane clathates (frozen methane buried in sea mud) and as they warm up, such as has been observed in the arctic tundra, methane is released, not because of human livestock farming but from Earth core warming up. They have to know this, so this is all mid-direction to keep the peasants freaked out about the wrong stuff.

19 degrees here this morning when I woke up.
It got up to 34 briefly yesterday. We got a little more snow over night. We are still thinking we like this over the ALaska winters.
I had bought 13 zone 3 Apple trees I intended to have planted by now but because of the weather they are now potted and sitting inside our cabin.
The pots are the thin ones so now come fall or maybe later in the summer I will set them in their holes and trim most of the pots away so as to not disturb the roots that will form this summer.

Yes, the author of "Earthweek", Steve Newman does not believe in the GSM, he does report on volcanos and other useful information as it relates to the GSM. We get a overall picture of what is happening on the earth.

Ktrapper, I don't know how big your tree pots are, but sometimes one can cut the bottoms off of those pots and still lower them into the hole. If the soil is really loose, maybe put a wide strap under and up the sides of the pot and clipped to the rim, that you can pull out after it's all lowered into the hole. Then one cut down the side of the pot and you can remove the whole piece, which really is better for the root ball.
