As is typical in most el Nino winters, half of the country is very warm and half is very cold. For example, where I grew up in Tucson, Arizona, the high today is exactly the same high here in Upstate NY, that is, way below normal. The Mountain States have been hammered by blizzards since the end of October with record snowfall in various places. Of course, all the headlines are about how warm this winter is, not how it is half very warm and half very cold. This infantile way of reporting facts due to propaganda needs pisses me off since it is painfully obvious what is going on. Not to mention, the el Nino, after a brief revival from a recent wave of sun spot activity, is now fading.
As we can see here, the actual ocean temperatures is dropping rapidly in the Atlantic and concentrating warm water in the eastern Pacific ocean making northern Australia and the various island chain countries much warmer this winter which is actually summer on this side of the equator. The warm waters off the West Coast US is cooling down rapidly.
The equatorial anomaly peaked at the end of October and has been falling steadily. The world faces widespread food shortages due to global warming is the latest scare story even though all the major famines happen during global cooling eras including, remember, the terrible scenes of people starving in Northern Africa in the cold 1970’s. On top of starving in warm Africa due to rainfall deficits, people who live in cold climates die off faster during cooling cycles, too. Right now, Russia warming ‘2.5 times quicker’ than global average: ministry says which is fabulous news if you are Russian people.
This article shows clearly how we are being told over and over again that the Little Ice Age is the good times and the much warmer cycle that began 150 years ago is an evil time: Glaciers and Ice Caps.pdf. This article was written by a Swiss geologist who doesn’t mention anywhere that Switzerland was nearly destroyed during the Little Ice Age:
Curiosity and romantic enthusiasm characterize many historical reports and paintings of glaciers and high mountain landscapes. Very often, glaciers are portrayed as an expression of ‘wild, non-destroyable’ nature, sharply contrasting with the cultivated landscape of hu- man habitats. Glacierized mountain areas therefore be- came – and still are – major tourist attractions in many parts of the world. In fact, the ‘clean white of the eternal snow’ on high mountain peaks is often seen as a beauti- ful treasure and used as a precious symbol of intact en- vironments62. This is why the current shrinking, decay and even complete vanishing of glaciers evokes such an emotional response.
Apart from their symbolic value, glaciers are also among the best natural indicators of climate change12,20. Their development can be observed by everybody – and the physical process, the melting of ice under the influence of warmer temperatures, can intuitively be understood. The impacts of accelerated atmospheric warming are thus changing the public perception of glaciers: they are increasingly recognized as a warning signal for the state of the climate system.
Continued atmospheric warming (since the Little Ice Age finally ended) will inevitably lead to the deglaciation of many currently glacierized land- scapes, especially in low-latitude mountain chains.
During the post-MWP cooling of the climate, glaciers in many parts of Europe began to advance. Glaciers negatively influenced almost every aspect of life for those unfortunate enough to be living in their path. Glacial advances throughout Europe destroyed farmland and caused massive flooding. On many occasions bishops and priests were called to bless the fields and to pray that the ice stopped grinding forward (Bryson, 1977.) Various tax records show glaciers over the years destroying whole towns caught in their path. A few major advances, as noted by Ladurie (1971), appear below:
1595: Gietroz (Switzerland) glacier advances, dammed Dranse River, and caused flooding of Bagne with 70 deaths.
1600-10: Advances by Chamonix (France) glaciers cause massive floods which destroyed three villages and severely damaged a fourth. One village had stood since the 1200’s.
1670-80’s: Maximum historical advances by glaciers in eastern Alps. Noticeable decline of human population by this time in areas close to glaciers, whereas population elsewhere in Europe had risen.
1695-1709: Iceland glaciers advance dramatically, destroying farms.
1710-1735: A glacier in Norway was advancing at a rate of 100 m per year for 25 years.
1748-50: Norwegian glaciers achieved their historical maximum LIA positions.
Lamb (1995) reports that the population of Iceland fell from about 77,500, as indicated by tax records in 1095, to around 72,000 in 1311. By 1703 it was down to 50,000, and after some severe years of ice and volcanic eruptions in the 1780’s it was only 38,000. Average height declined from 5’8″ during the tenth century to 5’6″ in the eighteenth century.Lamb (1995) attributes much of the decline in population to the colder climate and increased ice flow. The harvest years were so cold that there was little hay to feed the livestock so thousands of sheep died.
During the MWP, Icelanders grew grain over much of the island but by the early 1200’s only barley, a short-season grain, was being grown. Lamb (1995) notes that there was also an increase in glacier growth and subsequent flooding from bursts due to volcanic activity under the ice. By the 1500’s conditions were so bad that all attempts at grain growing were abandoned and Icelanders turned solely to the sea for their survival.
The shellfish near the shores were destroyed by increasing amounts of ice so cod fishing became the Icelanders main source of food and trade. As the cooler waters moved southward, the cod were forced farther southward until they were too far offshore for the primitive Icelandic ships to reach.
We are being told today that the ideal climate was pre-1850. This is insane. It has gathered strength as educators in the system learned they can earn lots of money if they lie about these facts. So they happily lie away, bent on teaching everyone that cold is good and warm is bad even though this is the exact opposite of reality. Right now, people are still being artificially warmed and fed so they don’t know the direct fear of a colder climate but that is around the corner, it appears as this 30 year warming cycle fades.
Here is a sample of the selection of stories I hunted down using the words ‘The earth is too warm’ that illustrates the insanity of the global warmist propaganda: Short Sharp Science: Earth, 2300: Too hot for humans – New Scientist:
Sep 18, 2013 … The Earth has some time left before the sun gets too hot. Based on their models, the scientists calculate that the planet will fall out of the …
May 4, 2010 … Reasonable worst-case scenarios for global warming could lead to deadly temperatures for humans in coming centuries.
Oct 28, 2015 … The Middle East is one of the hottest places on Earth. A study warns the Persian Gulf, with its high humidity, could become too hot for human …
All the articles on this search page have the same thing: a more HUMID and warm climate will kill humans who evolved as the Naked Ape…during a very warm previous Interglacial cycle. The only reason we didn’t perish when the last cold wave hit was due to being able to kill animals and wear their furry skins. Period. Minus that, we would have died off even in most of Africa. Hot and humid is easy: you drink lots of fluid and you take a siesta in the middle of the day. Cold and glacial: you have to warm your hut which involves lots of wood gathering and chopping and tending the fires and kill animals and wear the skins and even then, life is very, very hard, no siestas at mid day, that is certain.
This lunacy praising unusually cold weather and shrieking about how warm, humid weather will kill us is pure propaganda but also very funny to watch. I will note that EVERYONE in the cold northern realm this winter is absolutely happy that it is warm right now and are worried about the coming cold since it will get much colder this winter once el Nino fades. We all know this and we also know that next winter will be very hard due to the fact that el Ninos are followed by la Ninas that means cold, cold, cold here.
