“Icelandic Blast” To Grip Europe, As It Stares Down “Cold, Dark Winter”; Early-Season Snow Clips Minnesota, Warnings Issued North Of The Border; + Greenland’s Record Start To A Season
“Icelandic Blast” To Grip Europe…
An “Icelandic blast” is buffeting Western and Central Europe this week, bringing exceptionally frigid winds, snow and frost and threatening even colder conditions over the weekend and into next week.
UK meteorologists say winter is set to hit earlier than usual this year, thanks to 1) a deep low-pressure system spiraling towards Western Europe from Iceland, and 2) ex-Hurricane Fiona bolstering an anomalous high-pressure in the Atlantic.
“The cold weather will set in at the end of the weekend and looks like it isn’t going anywhere quickly,” said Jim Dale, meteorologist for the British Weather Services, who also predicts settling now for Scotland and frosts most-everywhere else.
“It is fair to say the seasons are about to make a dramatic transition to something much colder,” said Dale.
Lows of -3C (26.6F) –and beyond– are possible before the close of September, which in some locales would prove record-breaking — a dramatic turnaround that I’m sure our warm-mongering mainstream corporate media will dutifully relay to the public.
Today, for example, Sept 29, the coldest temperature ever recorded in the UK was the -4.4C (24.1F) set in West Linton in 1940.
The cold snap is also being driven by the remains of Hurricane Fiona, which threaten to “squeeze a lobe of cold air” over the UK. Rain will fall as snow falls over the higher elevations, and freezing lows will sweep much of Britain. This is according to the Met Office — “a cold plunge” is what they’re calling it, as “widely across the UK temperatures will be below average”.
And as revealed by the latest GFS run (shown below, which takes us through Friday), this “cold plunge” is already impacting far more than just Britain, with vast swathes of mainland Europe, including energy-stricken Germany, also shivering:
An early-season freeze the continent could have done without.
…As It Stares Down “Cold, Dark Winter”
With its depleting energy reserves, driven alost entirely by poor foresight and planning, Europeans are inching towards a winter of hardships and difficult choices — and the colder the conditions, the harder the hardships.
Homes are almost assured of energy shortages, and for many, that will mean the heating, lights, fridges and ovens will be useless as plummeting temperatures grip the continent this winter.
Across Europe, statues and historic buildings are being left in dark in order to save energy, there are limitations on maximum heating temperatures, and businesses, such as bakeries, have been forced to shut up shop due to cripplingly-high prices, reported the AP, who add that European’s are also collecting firewood in record numbers in an attempt to keep to the fast-approaching cold season at bay.
Frantic ‘Net Zero’ Back-Pedaling
Prior to the war, EU nations met 40% of their energy needs using Russian gas. But with Moscow halting the supply, as they’re fully entitled to do by the way, natural gas prices have skyrocketed which is proving most-painful for the average citizen.
Nations that were once major advocates of reducing carbon emissions have now seen the folly of their ways and are firing back up coal and nuclear plants like they’re going out of fashion–which, of course, they had been for years prior thanks to the hijacking of reason and sense by those meaning-seeking Greens who, rather than loving the planet, as they endlessly profess, appear to hate humanity far more.
Modern human prosperity, health and well-being was built on the back of cheap and reliable energy, you rid our species of that and you resign billions –yes billions– of people to an existence of comparative ruin and suffering.
Despite its best efforts, the EU is failing to ramp up its natural gas production quickly enough because the infrastructure is simply no longer there. Many governments have even nationalized utility companies in order to save them from going bankrupt. And at this juncture, the depressing yet only viable option open is to try and save energy reserves for the coming winter — i.e. rationing.
These measures, although beneficial in the short term, will have dire consequences. Industrial shutdowns are tearing through the block like falling dominoes. Taking fertilizer production, as an example, with non-operation manufacturing plants there will be a chronic shortage of farming inputs come next spring — a drastic reduction in fertilizers means a drastic reduction in crop yields.
Nord Stream “Sabotage”
Weeks after Moscow turned off the Nord Stream spigots, the pipelines have now been “sabotaged”, meaning Europe will have no choice but to survive winter without a single cubic foot of Russian gas.
The Nord Stream 1 pipeline, the energy lifeline of Europe, is made of two parallel branches. The pair of pipes run under the Baltic Sea from the Russian coast near St Petersburg to north-eastern Germany. Its twin, Nord Stream 2, was stopped as soon as Russia began its invasion of Ukraine. Despite being out of operation, the pipeline contained gas.
The European Union on Wednesday promised a “robust” response to any intentional disruption of its energy infrastructure after saying it suspected “sabotage” as being behind the gas leaks discovered this week on both branches of Nord Stream 1.
As gas spewed out under the Baltic Sea for a third day it remained far from clear who might be responsible. However, theories and finger pointing abound, with the U.S. and Russia themselves being top of the list of suspects.
“Any deliberate disruption of European energy infrastructure is utterly unacceptable and will be met with a robust and united response,” the EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell said–which likely means precisely nothing.
Echoing the views of Germany, Denmark and Sweden, he said sabotage was likely, although the EU has not named a potential perpetrator or suggested a motive. While Washington, which has led efforts to punish Moscow over the war, believes it is too soon to conclude that there was sabotage, a senior U.S. military official said–wink-wink.
It is also possible that the taking out of Nord Stream is part of the oil price cap plan proposed by G7 nations –U.S., Japan, Germany, Britain, France, Italy, and Canada– along with the wider EU, which is a mechanism designed to hurt Russia.
Moscow however has made it clear that it won’t supply energy to any nation that signs up to it, likely deterring most other countries from supporting the plan.
Europe is currently brewing a major hurricane of its own with the entire globe susceptible to the storm surge.
Europe’s Crackdown On Inflation Is Already Cracking
“Europe is very clearly heading into what could be a fairly deep recession,” said a former chief economist at the IMF.
The economic downturn has been aggravated by Central Bank’s efforts to tackle surging inflation by raising interest rates.
However, Wednesday saw two major global banks –one being the Bank Of England– pivoting with regards to their planned Quantitative Tightening (QT). The BoE has caved given the overwhelming economic threat and has returned to Quantitative Easing (QE) — i.e., it’s turned the money printers back on and has aimed them at squarely at an already inflated economy. This, although potentially saving the situation (the markets) in the short term, will only worsen inflation in the medium to long-term.
This act, particularly if it’s followed across the pond by the Fed has, at least to my mind, confirmed that a Great Depression-level collapse will hit once we catch up to this behemoth of a kicked can. But first, a potential euphoric FOMO parabola could sweep the stock markets, giving us one last hurrah before the mother of all crashes takes everyone out at the knees.
Early-Season Snow Clips Minnesota…
Minnesota reported its first snowflakes of the season Tuesday morning.
According to the National Weather Service in Duluth, on and off flurries were noted along the Gunflint Trail in Cook County, with the likes of Ely also seeing some early-season flakes.
Worth noting, the average first measurable snowfall in Duluth is Oct 24 (with measurable snowfall defined as a tenth of an inch or more). The average in Rochester is Nov 4, with the earliest measurable on record their being Sept 26, 1942.
…Warnings Issued North Of The Border
“Winter is here,” reads the opening of a recent nnsl.com article.
Inches began settling Monday night, and blowing snow soon shuttered both the Dempster and the Inuvik Tuktoyaktuk Highways.
Warnings were issued by Environment Canada for the Northwest Territories, including Fort McPherson, Tsiigehtchic and Inuvik: “Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow,” read part of the ECCC release.
Greenland’s Record Start To A Season
While we’re up north, it should be noted that Greenland’s ice sheet has started the 2021-2022 season in impressive fashion.
The island has logged Surface Mass Balance (SMB) gains (blue line in the chart below) that have not only climbed above the 1981-2010 mean (grey line), but that have also nudged above the highest levels ever previously recorded (lighter grey ‘range’):
Objectively looking at the data, Greenland hasn’t logged a ‘healthier’ start to a season in the 41 years of DMI record-keeping, and is continuing the ‘swing to gains’ which commenced back in 2013.

But. But Global Warming!!!
The AGW believers are just a few people who have access to the MSM and politicians with our money.
When they are freezing their asses off in winter AND realizing it’s cold in Summer…than maybe they’ll realize ‘Men are not God’s and cont control the climate’.
But is it ever going to get cold in the summer? We just had the hottest summer in probably the last 10 years. The temp hovered around 100F for 3 weeks straight with humidity almost as high.
This is the worst ice age I’ve ever seen!
Pick one: (1) cant
When I first looked at the the possible results of a two hemisphere over lapping cold season, which would be a natural result of declining temperatures. The increasing abundance of cold heavy air pressing on the warm air mass from the north and south simultaneously would compress that warm air mass. As you know compressed air gets hotter.
The cold probing fingers that CAP points penetrating from the north plunging to the south will also increase compression. Electrostatic charges differ in cold and warm air masses preventing mixing.
It seems unavoidable but it is fools gold for the global warming faithful. Here today gone tomorrow. When the solar flaring flatlines and the cosmic rays increase expect spiraling down temperatures and compressed hot spots in my humble opinion.
Can’t and our Summer here in SC KY was mild. Never got over 90°F and only then twice. AND on the day Fall started…temps went to FALL instantly. We went from 88°F to 70°F.
I’ll trust my education, Cap and Tony Heller over the ‘scientists’ who have said that the North Pole won’t have ice by 2004, 2008 and other dates, those who said ‘Snow is a thing of the past’, and especially the fools who say CO2 is BAD! CO2 is plant food and without it…WE ALL DIE!
OOPS! We only got to 90°F twice…and
Where are you Deb I live in the south west UK and it was nowt to write home about. Anyway you are talking weather not climate, weather being local. If you enjoyed a long hot summer, well done ours was mostly average.
Dry due to Elnino the 2nd year running, cooler oceans mean less precipitation ie drought. Check out the Bronze age collapse, first it was very dry for years then it got really cold globally. All dark ages are in cool times, warm periods are better for all life on earth.
I’m in Missouri USA and I hate very hot weather because I just cannot function in it.
I’ve been expecting cooler summers for the last 15 years, about to give up on them. With my luck, it’ll be colder winters and hotter summers.
If not for the conservative political climate, I wouldn’t have much use for Missouri.
But the plants love it. Go figure.
I live in Colorado and it was one of the cooler summers we’ve had in years. The MSM is stacking temps to the tune of 5 degrees a day from what i’m recording and also seeing on Time & Date. We had the wettest summer in years too and thankfully no big fires like we’ve had the past few years. Just an observation from my speck on the globe:)
In Missouri you can have distilling equipment and use it. The only state in the union that treats it’s people like adults.
Didn’t know that. Might want to distill something someday.
Best non-secular glurge gurgle from A to Zed on the net.
debs,in the 1600’s we had short hot summers like this one..its a symptom of the grand solar minimums..quite simple to understand really re the wavy north /south jet streams
Easy to understand now that they are happening, but 15 years ago it looked like the GSM would bring cool summers, as far as I ever heard then.
On this Nord Stream pipe line. I don’t know how deep it is but if it is very deep, reducing internal pressure might cause crushing from water pressure at weak points. Just throwing that out there.
No, not very deep, in parts only around 75 feet/22 metres. The pipe was also covered in inches of concrete.
70 metres / 230 feet
The second those pipes were severed/ruptured/blowed up the pressure on the inside of those pipes instantly became equal to [at least] the hydrostatic pressure on the outside. If there is gas coming out of the pipes at depth then the gas pressure on the inside must be greater than the hydrostatic pressure from the water on the outside. i.e. Russia is pumping gas at pressures greater than the hydrostatic pressure at the break. Because we are being lied to almost all the time it is quite possible that a large underwater gas release photo(s) from any source taken anytime anywhere could have been used to create the “story”. It’s all mostly theatre to create fictional realities “Out of Shadows” for the masses and to further the script. Think JFK, Gulf of Tonkin, moon landings, 9/11, Covid/miracle injections, global warming, CO2, N2 etc. As long as they’re blowed up in the “minds” of the public believers that still “believes”.
Next thing Elon Musk will do some last minute “Hail Mary” miracle repair work with the same sub he sent to save the twelve Thailand boys trapped in a tourist cave a few years ago to rescue Europe from the cold. RAND Corp/Tavistock or any other think tanks… if you guys need any help in the planning department ring me anytime.
Out of Shadows
I watched most of Out of Shadows, not much there I didn’t know or surmise, except the names of the players, which I don’t care about. Thought some of it may seem familiar to you, as it does to me.
I had a meltdown after being taken to see Dumbo as a small child, so I didn’t have to watch any more Disney movies.
Also, we were without a TV during much of my childhood because we were very poor and the used ones we were given never lasted very long. I thought a great privation then, see it for the blessing it was now.
… watches half of a documentary and then gives her opinion… visualizing a Church Lady Dumbo in Depends.
Still praying for you, every day.

British sociologist Noah Carl has written extensively about what he called the “Nord Stream 2 theory,” arguing that the Russia-Ukraine conflict was always about sabotaging NS2, presenting this as the basic argument:
“In a world where Germany and Russia are friends and trading partners, there is no need for U.S. military bases, no need for expensive U.S.-made weapons and missile systems, and no need for NATO. There’s also no need to transact energy deals in U.S. Dollars or to stockpile U.S. Treasuries to balance accounts. Transactions between business partners can be conducted in their own currencies which is bound to precipitate a sharp decline in the value of the dollar and a dramatic shift in economic power.”
The Report from Iron Mountain
The Report from Iron Mountain is a book published in 1967 (during the Johnson Administration) by Dial Press which puts itself forth as the report of a government panel. The book includes the claim it was authored by a Special Study Group of fifteen men whose identities were to remain secret and that it was not intended to be made public. It details the analyses of a government panel which concludes that war, or a credible substitute for war, is necessary if governments are to maintain power. The book was a New York Times bestseller and has been translated into fifteen languages. Controversy still swirls over whether the book was a satiric hoax about think-tank logic and writing style or the product of a secret [CIA] government panel.
After the recent mass bioweapon deployment ww the demolition of the Nord Stream 1 and 2 pipelines in the Baltic Sea is one of the most outrageous and evil acts of [and obvious prelude to evermore “covert” mass genocide] terrorism and sabotage [to come] in the history of our world.
Nord Stream pipeline SABOTAGE clearly orchestrated by ruthless Biden regime: Nuland, Biden and Sen. Johnson all demanded “ending it permanently” by any means necessary.
Resident Joe Biden, Russophobic State Department official Victoria Nuland and GOP Senator Ron Johnson are all on the record demanding the Nord Stream pipelines be taken out, implying they will use any means necessary to achieve that outcome.
Watch from 2:52 in the following exchange between Sen. Ron Johnson and Victoria Nuland, a known Russia hater and key architect of the corrupt Zelensky regime that openly cooperates with actual Nazis while stealing billions of dollars from US taxpayers:
Sen. Ron Johnson: “I can’t think of a more powerful way to punish Russian aggression than by rolling back what progress has been made, and if at all possible , prevent the Nord Stream 2 from ever being completed.”
Sen. Johnson: “…Taking action that will prevent it from EVER becoming operational.”
Nuland: “…Our expectation is that the pipeline will be suspended.”
Johnson: “I certainly hope that the Senate Foreign Relations committee would take up legislation that would go beyond just suspending it but ending it permanently.”

I really wish you would stick to climate and keep your right wing political agenda out of it. Mixing them together just devalues both.
It appears to Zed that by having an opposing opinion and that by highlighting the CC scam championed by the communists/socialist/fascist nutters against human liberty, it is “right wing” because we push back.
Hopefully Zeds mind and logical thinking will slowly be pried open to a different perspective on this website considering he is here.
… W, X, Y… Zed. The internet is like a big mall with lotsa stores…
the no entropic climate change is acted the consequences will be tragic for the people but the dominators don’t care they know and they will add the controlled demolition of the economy of the monetary system was architected from their creation they respect the timing well now the war is here it is no longer a proxy it is direct nato russia anyway if there is no nuclear war there will be widespread poverty for more than 90% of of the population before its elimination, we have become useless for the system
