Big Freeze Grips Much Of North America
A pair of polar fronts barreling into the Western U.S. are ushering in record-challenging cold and low-level snowfall.
“A cold front located 250 miles northwest of San Francisco, the first in a series of two cold fronts, will arrive today,” Bay Area forecasters said Monday, with the second more powerful system arriving in quick succession, on Tuesday.
“Tuesday’s cold front will be accompanied by low freezing levels,” continued the forecasters, adding that San Francisco counties should “expect well-below February normal temperatures and near record lows during mid-week with Wednesday and Thursday the coldest.”
As a result, the NWS has issued freeze watches for Tuesday and Wednesday, with more likely Thursday.
The low temperatures could kill crops and other vegetation and damage unprotected outdoor plumbing. Residents are urged to start now to protect plants and outdoor water pipes. Pipes should be wrapped and drained or allowed to drip slowly.
This intensifying freeze isn’t confined to the West Coast — far from it.
Much of North America is on course to receive a true Arctic walloping:
And looking further ahead, that potential SSW event remains a concern for early-March:
Metro Manila’s air temperature dropped to an unusually-frigid 20.3C (68.5F) on Valentine’s Day, in Quezon City.
As per the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA), Manila’s cold can be attributed to the prevailing northeast monsoon, or “amihan.”
PAGASA expects “cold surges” to persist until at least the end of the month, with surface air temperatures to hold cooler than average across most parts of the country.
“We Have 500 Days To Avoid Climate Chaos”
Fear is a powerful weapon. The threat of an impending “climate catastrophe” has been used to control the global population for decades. It’s time we all woke up.
In the 1960s and 1970s, warnings of Ozone Depletion, Killer Acid Rain, crop-ending droughts, and even an impending Ice Age permeated the newspapers of the day, threats intentionally crafted to keep the sheep scared and compliant.
Then, by the 1980s these warnings had been honed, meticulously and malevolently molded into perhaps the greatest controlling measure ever devised. At the close of the decade the elites were ready to unleash it on the masses.
They realized that blaming the people for any looming catastrophe provided additional exploitable layers to the fear. Layers of guilt, of infighting and division, and of taxation. The name of the controlling measure was Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW).
NASA’s James Hansen’s Congressional testimony in 1988 set the ball rolling, or at least can be credited with bringing the “measure” to the attention of politicians. Hansen linked human CO2 emissions to rising global temperatures and projected three ‘warming scenarios’ moving into the future (click here for how well he did — spoiler: he did terribly).
Wasting no time in rolling out Project Fear, the UN and its corrupted MSM lapdogs ran with Hansen’s testimony and quickly began peddling-out their own scientifically-baseless doomsday scenarios.
An AP headline from as early as 1989 read: “Rising seas could obliterate nations: U.N. officials” — the article detailed a U.N. environmental official warning that entire nations would be wiped off the map if the world failed to reverse warming by 2000.
Science told us the Arctic would be completely free of summer ice by 2009, by 2013, by 2015, by 2016, by 2018, and now by… 2050…? with mainstream publications never questioning the mounting pile of FAILED prophesies.
Al Gore is king of the bullshitters, but the majority of modern politicians have bought into the ruse, too (they’ve had to in order to placate a small yet noisy –and brainwashed– section of the populous)–though some do push it further than others and as a result blindly subject their future selves to ridicule and forced retraction when their predictions are inevitably proven wrong.
Back in May, 2014, French foreign minister Laurent Fabius, during a joint appearance with then U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, claimed “we have 500 days to avoid climate chaos.”
Fabius’s ludicrous comments were made during the early drafting of the Paris Climate Deal, a deal which gained 195 signatories and eventually became effective as of November 2016 (around 60 days after France’s foreign minister’s deadline for disaster).
But Fabius certainly isn’t alone.
Recent history is littered with examples of expired doomsday dates. There are long lists compiled on blogs across the web; there are catalogs documenting thousands upon thousands of failed climate predictions from politicians, scientists, and journalists alike. Unfortunately though, this reality is never touched by the bought-out and utterly corrupted MSM — The Science is settled, after-all, and the fact that every dire climate prediction of the past 40 years has been wrong is seemingly completely irrelevant.
We humans are sheep, though.
We are easily herded.
The few anti-authoritarians among us have an increasingly hard job because modern avenues for revolt are being shutdown. So-called “Fact-Checkers” are filtering speech across the internet, and they and they alone decide what’s true, and so, at the behest of their Totalitarian backers, they can shape the narrative and therefore reality itself–and on all topics, too: from AGW to COVID, from the Ukraine to BLM, from vinyl chloride spills to the destruction of our food supply.
It’s long time we stand up.
It’s time we revolt.
Escape And Farm
Personally, ‘escaping the system’ has been my insurrection, with myself and my young family now off-grid and growing our own food in Central Portugal.
The establishment does not have our best interests at heart –to put it mildly– and if you want energy and food security then you need to work for it — at least these are my convictions.
And with that in mind, I’m now going to shut the laptop and head out to continue construction of our new pig enclosure and sty. We have KuneKunes arriving next month, and these stocky escape artists need a robust pen to keep them in–with electric fencing, too.
Also this Spring, I’m planning to grow the ancient wheat variety ‘Emmer’ for its health benefits.
Emmer is closely related to Einkorn, the original or “mother” wheat, and both have far superior health properties compared to modern day wheat which has been hybridized for yield and gluten content over quality.
I will try a small patch of Einkorn, too, but I’ve read that Emmer rose to dominate Einkorn in ancient times because it was easier to grow, tolerated heat better (good for Portugal!), and was less likely to drop its seed before harvest.
If anyone has any experience growing either of these varieties, please feel free to offer me some much needed advice in the comments.
Energy and food security are not something owed, but earned.
