It went to below zero again on my mountain last night. This is a colder than normal January so far. Something not mentioned in US news much: Mars was warmer than much of the U.S. today | Daily Mail Online
The daytime high in the red planet’s Gale Crater, as recorded by NASA’s curiosity Rover, was 17.6 degrees F – a whopping 11 degrees warmer than the 6-degree high in Green Bay, Wisconsin.
Temperatures in fourteen states from Washington to Maine reported temperatures colder than Mars, as a brutal blast of Arctic air sweeps the country.
Mars just recently passed its closest orbit to the sun, which partially explains why the temperature was relatively balmy. The Gale Crater is also located in one of the warmest parts of the planet, near the equator.
NASA ebola suits…wait! This is a picture of how we will exist on Mars, not Africa. Mars is colder than Antarctica and Antarctica is quite cold. Its atmosphere is 95% CO2. Note how hot it is! The poles are -195 degrees but on the equator, it can heat up to 70 degrees during the day and fall to -100 degrees at night. Much of the CO2 is sequestered in winter on Mars at the poles. Yesterday, the head of NASA talked about ‘climate change’ and Mars which illustrates how out of touch with reality, NASA has become due to the reflexive need to hook everything into ‘CO2 is evil’ storyline.

Intellicast – Frost & Freeze in United States: Below is a map showing the next Arctic cold front that will send temperatures plunging yet again, down to near zero here in the Northeast by Wednesday night:
The cruel grip of winter continues its stranglehold on North America. Meanwhile, the South is warming up until this cold wave hits yet again so we can talk about how we are all going to roast to death. One of the strangest things about the ongoing debates this year is how typical Ice Age impending conditions are being blamed on it being too hot. Droughts, for example, are very much ice age climate conditions. The temporary flooding we see in the warmer places like England and Europe is the tail end of a warming cycle, not the beginning.
