Summer Frosts Sweep Siberia/Central Asia
The first Arctic air masses of the season are already sweeping Siberia and Central Asia, weeks ahead of schedule.
Rare summer freezes are affecting Siberia, Mongolia, Kazakhstan, as well as Northern China this week, felling low temperature records as they go.
Leninogorsk, in Kazakhstan, for example, just witnessed its earliest frost since 2011; and similarly in Oymyakon, Russia, a low of -0.6C has been noted as polar cold ravages, and is forecast to continue to ravage, vast swathes of the Asian continent.
Additional Snow Hits South Africa
South Africa has seen a return of anomalous lows and unusual snows this week.
Additional flurries have added to the already historic accumulations across Southern Africa’s mountainous region of Lesotho, further rewarding all those European ski-freaks that traveled there to enjoy the rare event.
While winter snow across Lesotho isn’t particularly rare, such heavy falls most certainly are; as are the flakes accumulating on lower-lying parts of country, too — many towns are seeing their first snow since 2012, or earlier, according to local reports.
All this follows the truly historic cold and snow that swept this part of the world last year:
Record-Cold Sweeps Australia…
While the media traverses the globe on a desperate ‘hot-hunting’ expedition, milking summer heatwaves for all their worth–heat that was pulled anomalously far north by a low solar activity-induced ‘meridional‘ jet stream flow–unbeknownst to them, or at least unreported by them, is the fact that the entire Southern Hemisphere has been holding COLDER than the 1979-2000 average for some time now, according to the data provided by the Climate Change Institute at the University of Maine.
Today, August 23, the Southern Hemisphere (90°S-0) is -0.4C below the 1979-2000 base.
The media’s failure to report on this fact leaves the trusting and dutiful among us dangerously uninformed. ‘Dangerously’ because the eco-warrior solution to a supposedly catastrophically-warming planet is to eradicate cheap and reliable energy.
This would be folly even if the planet was found to be warming (which it no longer is, of course). If you want environmental issues to be addressed–of which I fully recognize there are plenty–plunging 99% of the global population into poverty is not the way to do it — the opposite is. Research shows time and time again that the more affluent a populous the more environmentally savvy they become (not worrying where the hell your family’s next meal is going to come from probably has something to do with it).
However, I am not naive. Raising the masses out of poverty is most certainly not in the best interest of the elites. That’s a bloody non-starter as far as they’re concerned. A population that’s hungry is a population that works. As professor George Kent of the University of Hawaii infamously wrote, without the threat of hunger the global economy would cease to exist:
“For those of us at the high end of the social ladder, ending hunger globally would be a disaster. If there were no hunger in the world, who would plow the fields? Who would harvest our vegetables? Who would work in the rendering plants? Who would clean our toilets? We would have to produce our own food and clean our own toilets. No wonder people at the high end are not rushing to solve the hunger problem. For many of us, hunger is not a problem, but an asset.”
Muse on that foolish eco-warriors as this coming Northern Hemisphere winter draws in — a season ‘they’ themselves have warned will be accompanied by blackouts and food shortages. Awaken in horror as the fantasy that you and your activist chums marched for, that you disrupted traffic by gluing yourself to the highways for, materializes before your foolish and blinded eyes.
Good luck with that, you fools. I hope you’re ready, you fools.
Winter 2022 in the Southern Hemisphere should serve as something of a warning shot. If you think Mother Nature is going to reward the alarmists’ planet-saving endeavors then you are sorely mistaken. Mother Nature is a no-shit-giving bitch who eats dumb ideologies for breakfast–as is only right. This is her planet, after all, why would she ever cater to the will of idiots.
Australia is on for one of its coldest and snowiest winter on record this year–another fact the legacy media is sidestepping–and the freeze Down Under isn’t set to abate anytime soon, far from it, as visualized by the latest GFS run:
Additional rounds of accumulating snow will accompany the cold, down to elevations of 500m and below, too.
And looking further ahead, the picture is very much the same as the calendar flips to September:
…And South America
The crop-wrecking chills blasting swathes of South America are also persisting.
Fierce Antarctic fronts have pushed unusually-far north into central Brazil where they’re causing no end of headaches for farmers–just as Brazil’s key Safrinha corn harvest is at a crucial finishing stage.
Freezing temperatures have swept the majority of the South American continent over the past few days — Thierry Goose on Twitter has done a good job documenting them, although his list is by no means exhaustive:
Additional lows have been pointed out by @Climaterra (see below), who also note that São Joaquim, with its reading of -13C (8.6F) this week, has suffered its lowest-ever grass/ground temperature reading during the month August:
South America can expect another day or two of anomalous cold before a brief burst of warmth sweeps the continent.
Hot on the heels of that, though, will be a return to the crop-wrecking cold, set to push north beginning August 28/29:
Germany To Prioritize Coal Trains Over Passenger Services
Germany has said it will give coal trains priority over passenger services on its rail network as the country desperately attempts to undo absurd climate policies that are now threatening both its economy and the safety of its citizens.
A draft proposal by the German government includes a warning that the introduction of such a plan could create rail chaos, but the powerhouse of Europe has little choice: winter is fast-approaching, gas is in short supply, and renewables are useless
Germany–and the wider European continent–has been plunged into an energy crisis due to cripplingly stupid dreams of Net Zero and an equally idiotic poking of the Russia Bear via U.S.-led political intervention in The Ukraine.
In response to Western sanctions, Russian state gas company has now cut gas supplies to Germany through the Nord Stream 1 pipeline to just 20% of capacity — a reality that has Germany in full panic mode, and rightly so.
Natural gas accounts for 27% of Germany’s overall energy mix, and before the war, 55% of that gas was imported from Russia. The German government is now making emergency preparations in case Moscow halts the gas supply altogether.
It feels to me that politicians, at least privately, have woken to the ‘global warming’ ruse. Unfortunately, however, and as is also the case with the similarly ruinous ‘vaccines’, what these placating cowards are now offering as a backtrack is far too little, far too late. The damage is already done, and it is largely irreversible–at least in the short term.
Governments simply won’t have their citizens backs this winter.
It will be survival of the fittest, as Mother Nature always intended.
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).
