Frosts Sweep France
Europe is contending with a record-breaking bout of late-summer chills — a freeze that the bought-out legacy media couldn’t give two hoots about (quelle surprise!).
September frosts swept the plains of Central France over the weekend — ground frosts as well as air frosts (below 2m).
Monthly low temperature records have been set, including at Brest, although many of these new benchmarks won’t officially stand due to a change of location at the stations.

Coldest Summer Nights Ever Recorded In Northern/Central Italy
Historically cold nights have been registered across many regions of Italy in recent days. Temperatures have plunged below the freezing mark in both North AND Central regions, and at low elevations, too.
After a toasty July/August, a myriad of Italian stations have now observed their coldest nights ever recorded (prior to the fall equinox). This is exactly what a bout of prolonged low solar activity calls for: bursts of intense summer heat, followed by dramatic cool downs and fierce, Arctic winters — a setup driven by a changeable jet stream.
Low solar activity impacts Earth’s climate via a number of different mechanisms, the most notable being the reduction of energy entering the jet streams which weakens the jets’ standard straight ZONAL flow to a wavy MERIDIONAL one:
In times of meridional flow, a region’s weather is determined by which ‘side’ of the stream it is on. If it’s located ‘above’ the stream (in the NH) then it’s in for a spell of unseasonably cold conditions–as it is open to influxes of Arctic air; while conversely, if the locale is ‘under’ the jet stream then it’s set for anomalously hot conditions–as it is subject to air masses dragged up from the tropics.
A ‘wavy’ jet stream flow also increases the prevalence of swings between extremes; that is to say, intense bursts of heat will linger in one area, while a teeth-chattering chill will dominate nearby. These regions are also open to ‘flipping on a dime’ and it is this unpredictable ‘chopping and changing’ that will hasten the failure of our modern food production systems as growers fail to adapt quickly enough.
“Almost winter provisional lows this morning on the Piedmontese plain”, reads a tweet from Stefano Di Battista, who notes the low of 1.8C (35.2F) at Castell’Alfero on Sunday morning, which, although not a new monthly low –that being the 0.7C (33.3F) from Sept 27, 2020 (another sign of Europe’s cooling climate)– is the area’s coldest-ever reading prior to the equinox.

The precipitation has also returned, which is already falling as heavy snow in the Alps (and also Scandinavia):
Chilliest Sept 18 For The Netherlands
Sunday was the coldest September 18th ever recorded in The Netherlands, reports Weeronline.
The maximum temperature at the national weather station in De Bilt reached just 13.3C (55.9F), breaking the previous Sept 18 low of 13.5C (56.3F) set back in 1962.
Sunday’s high was measured at 12:40PM, after which it quickly cooled to 11.3C (52.3F)
A few locales in the east of the Netherlands were even colder, with Enschede, for example, struggling to a max of just 12.1C (53.8F).
This coming week will be cool and cloudy, according to the meteorological institute KNMI.
In fact, ‘anomalous cold’ will be the story for the majority Europe:
New Study Finds There Is No Climate Emergency
Four leading Italian scientists have undertaken a major review of historical climate trends and concluded that declaring a ‘climate emergency’ is not supported by the data — another story our corrupted corporate media will be quick to bury.
The study, “A critical assessment of extreme events trends in times of global warming”, assessed time series and crisis indicators –such as hurricanes, flooding, heatwaves, crop yields, etc.– and concluded that observations show “no clear positive trends of extreme events.”
Moreover, regarding ecosystems, the scientists noted a considerable “greening” of global plant biomass in recent decades due to higher levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide which has increased food yields and pushing back deserts.
The four researchers, led by Gianluca Alimonti of the Italian National Institute for Nuclear Physics, found that “on the basis of observational data, the climate crisis that, according to many sources, we are experiencing today, is not evident yet.”
As well as physics adjunct professor Gianluca Alimonti, agrometeorologist Luigi Mariani and physics professors Franco Prodi and Renato Angelo Ricci were the paper’s other highly qualified scientists–with the latter two being signatories of the ever-growing ‘World Climate Declaration’, a petition that, 1) also asserts there is no climate emergency, 2) calls for climate science to be more scientific, and 3) demands the liberation from the “naïve belief in immature climate models … [and that] climate research must give significantly more emphasis to empirical science”.
The study’s four scientists end with the following key message: Rather than burdening our children with anxiety regarding climate change, we should instead encourage them to think about issues like energy, food and health with a far more “objective and constructive spirit” and not waste limited resources on “costly and ineffective solutions”.
‘That’ Sunspot Has Resurrected
Just when you thought sunspot AR3088 was dead, it has been resurrected — the once decaying sunspot is growing again, adding more than 50% to its area over the weekend:
This is the sunspot’s second time around the sun. The first time, back in late-August, it peppered Earth with dozens of solar flares, and later hammered Venus with one of the strongest farside radiation storms in decades.
The sunspot reappeared on the Earthside of the sun a few days ago and was renumbered ‘AR3102’. It had appeared to be in decay, as reported here — but not so fast. Stay tuned for updates.
What’s over the horizon…?
Furthermore, a different –though potentially just as troublesome– sunspot group is approaching from just behind the sun’s southeastern limb:
We have seen it before. It is AR3089, which was responsible for an M-8 flare (so almost an X-flare) just as it exited the solar disk back in early-September.
It is now returning after a two week trip around the farside of the sun, and it looks to be even bigger than before. Once again, stay tuned for updates — not least because that Ali Al-Rubaidi ‘prophesy’, however wildly unlikely, remains in play:
