Fall-Like Weather To Engulf Energy-Stricken Europe
As the lights are turned off across Europe and as thermostats are reluctantly –though forcibly– turned down, a taste of winter is about to sweep the continent that will render that “catastrophic” summer heat a distant, unappreciated memory.
Cold kills far more than heat. This is an indisputable, and inconvenient, fact that the AGW Party has always had difficulty grappling with. 20x as many people die in the cold vs the heat, according to a study published in The Lancet; the figure is 80x as many, according to other research; while a 2020 study concluded that patients who died of the cold were responsible for 94% of temperature-related deaths.
Focusing on The Lancet study, the researchers, led by Antonio Gasparrini of the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, analyzed data on more than 74 million deaths in 13 countries between 1985 and 2012. Of those 74 millions deaths Gasparrini and his team found that 5.4 million were related to cold, while only 311,000 were related to heat.
Because the study included countries under different socio-economic backgrounds and with varying climates, it was representative of temperature-related deaths worldwide, said Gasparrini.
The sharp distinction between heat- and cold-related deaths is because low temperatures cause more problems for the body’s cardiovascular and respiratory systems, explains the study’s abstract.
“Public-health policies focus almost exclusively on minimizing the health consequences of heat waves,” said Gasparrini. “Our findings suggest that these measures need to be refocused and extended to take account of a whole range of effects associated with temperature.”
Of course, any mainstream admission that cold weather is a bigger killer than hot –with its predominance actually increasing, no less– is going to rattle ‘the reality’ that has been assembled over the past few decades. But this is exactly what European’s should be bracing for this winter — a dismantling of the orchestrated narrative and a million+ excess cold-related deaths.
The most compliant and trusting are already doomed to perish in their unheated homes –unheated due to unaffordability if not outright unavailability– that is, those who have existed exclusively in these modern times of abundance and who posses zero appreciation for historical sufferings.
In actuality, a history book isn’t even required — merely a memory:
As recently as 2017/18, the UK registered more than 50,000 excess winter deaths during that exceptionally cold Dec-through-March, according to official ONS data — the highest number since 1975/76.
While in Texas, over 700 excess deaths were registered during the states Big Freeze of 2021, including children who froze in their beds. The accompanying power outages affected 69% of Texans, with an estimated 4.5 million homes and businesses going without power at the peak of the blackout –for as long as 5-days in many cases– with the economic toll topping $300 billion.
September Frosts For Germany
Forecast to commence this Friday will be a taster of what’s to come, Europeans — ‘a warning shot across the bow’:
Heavy early-season snow is also set to accumulate in Scandinavia, the Alps and Balkan nations–starting this weekend:
Don’t underestimate the threat this fast-approaching winter poses. Frosts are already on course to grip Europe’s crumbling powerhouse, Germany, as early as next week, and there is no Russian gas –that’s zero– to help fend off the freeze.
Personally, I am buying back-up propane (just like Obama!), chopping wood in our forest (like a lumberjack), and stockpiling food (like Al Gore–the fat squirrel). I can only urge that you do the same. But who knows, maybe we’ll get lucky, maybe this Northern Hemisphere winter won’t be so bad…
Oh, and a ‘fact-check’ re. the Obama’s new gas tank made me laugh. They are NOT buying a 2,500 gallon propane tank, as has been widely reported on social media, they are in fact purchasing two 1,000 gallon tanks and one 500 gallon tank. 🤦♂️
Another Cold Month For Much Of South America
The month of August in Uruguay was another cold one, following on from the frigid June and July–with June finishing as the nation’s chilliest in 41 years.
August 2022 had temperature anomalies below the average across Uruguay, of 0.5C below in the South and 2C below in the NW.
It was a similar story in Bolivia last month, where cold nights –in particular– were the theme.
While in Peru, August 2022 followed a typical La Nina pattern. That is, cool and dry on the coast, mild and dry in the highlands with cold nights for most.
Central Argentina also suffered a colder-than-average August, continuing the country’s cooling trend witnessed this year. Argentina’s entire Autumn season (March-April-May) was its coldest since 1976 (solar minimum of weak cycle 20), with below-average-temperatures, for the most part, prevailing ever-since: June 2022, for example, was the nation’s coldest in 20 years.
It’s Baaaack! (AR3088):
Active sunspot AR3088 has returned after a two-week trip around the farside of the sun.
Fortunately, the returning sunspot seems to have decayed somewhat since we last saw it.
However, it still poses a threat for major flares.
We shouldn’t rule out Ali Al-Rubaidi’s prophesy just yet:
The COLD TIMES are returning, the mid-latitudes are REFREEZING in line with historically low solar activity, cloud-nucleating Cosmic Rays, and a meridional jet stream flow (among many other forcings, including the impending release of the Beaufort Gyre).
Social Media channels are restricting Electroverse’s reach: Twitter are purging followers, while Facebook are labeling posts as “false” and have now locked me out of my account. And most recently, the CCDH stripped the website of its ability to advertise with Google.
