Rare Summer Snowfall Hits Northwest China

As reported by cgtn.com, an unusual freeze and rare, heavy summer snow has swept China’s Northwest provinces.

Inches of unseasonal snow have coated the mountainous regions of Gansu, as well as the neighboring province of Qinghai.


As the CGTN reporter notes in the video below, while snow is by no means unprecedented across these regions, known to fall even as late as May and June, to see “widespread, heavy snowfall during the hottest days of summer is rare”.


Snow Blankets South Africa

The Southern Hemisphere has experienced a stark cool down in recent months, with Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha’apai’s record-high mesospheric eruption of Jan 15 believed to be a key contributing factor (more on that HERE).

With record lows and historic snows sweeping Australia, portions of Southern Africa and swathes of South America of late, it is now South Africa’s turn for a persistent blast of anomalously-cold Antarctic air.

Heavy snow this week has turned eastern parts of Lesotho and the Eastern Cape into a winter wonderland, reports news24.com.

The SA Weather Service (SWAS) said inches of snow was evident over the eastern parts of Lesotho as well as the southern Drakensberg.

In expectation of these flurries, SAWS issued a yellow level 1 warning for disruptive snow for the southern Drakensberg.

The office also issued a snow advisory for other high-lying areas over the Eastern Cape.


‘We’ve a had a generous output of snowfall this winter, and the white stuff isn’t done with us yet,’ reads a July 25 thesouthafrican.com article, which goes on warn that another icy blast is set to hit three South African provinces later this week.

This season looks set to continue the colder and snowier trend building in South Africa in recent years, with 2022 following the truly historic season of 2021 when the nation saw the slaying of all-time cold record after all-time cold record:


Data Shows European Heatwaves Are In Decline

In a recent article, the BBC asks if ‘European heatwaves are linked to climate change?’ And, despite the use of emotive images of burning buildings and deep red fire risk maps, they get a definite answer: no, the overall trend is actually down.

With almost 1,370 sq miles of land recorded as burnt (as of 16 July) this is a higher-than-average fire season across Europe, particularly across Spain and France.

“There are basically three important ingredients for fires: high temperatures, dryness, and high wind,” says Dr Friederike Otto, a senior lecturer in climate science at Imperial College London — and Spain and France have seen all three in recent weeks.

However, according to the experts, this fire season is actually something of an outlier.

“We’ve actually seen a decline in the area burned by fires in the Mediterranean and across Europe more widely over the last couple of decades, in a way that doesn’t marry up with the rapidly changing risk of fires,” said Dr Matthew Jones, a climate scientist at the University of East Anglia–who himself, it seems, has also been duped by the propaganda. A look at the data with an objective eye shows that it doesn’t ‘marry up’ because there isn’t a correlation, yet alone a causation, to be wed.


But the BBC, true to their unobjective form, go on to purposely muddy the waters, calling it a ‘complex picture’ and adding that it isn’t known why European heatwaves are on the decline despite the increasing ‘existential risk’ posed by ‘global warming’.

This data is clearly a setback to the dogmatic agency’s 20-year fear campaign, during which they have gradually ratcheted-up and pushed an ‘EOTW Climate Crisis’ narrative onto an ever disconnected, anxious and lonely populous who are all-too susceptible to a ‘unifying group cause’ (this is how mass formation prevails)–of which increasing wildfires are supposed to be a key component.

But as revealed by the data, the reality simply isn’t serving the agenda.

And we see the same thing across the pond, too–only it’s even more pronounced in the U.S., and even shadier, to boot.

Below is the ‘official’ wildfires charts for the United States.


It, like Europe’s, also shows a declining trend.

But there’s more.

The Biden administration recently scrubbed all wildfire data prior to 1983.

This was done because fire burn acreage was found to be much higher between 1910-1960 than it is today and therefore contradicted the government’s AGW/wildfire correlation — the actual data destroyed their ‘climate emergency’ narrative, and so the administration, in typically Orwellian fashion, wiped it from the history books citing the lackluster reasoning: “it wasn’t official”–linked here.

Moreover, and rather conveniently, the year 1983 –the new starting point– just so happens to have the lowest burn acreage in recorded history:

The National Interagency Fire Center (NIFC)


In reality, though –where I’m keen to reside– there is no correlation between to be found between anthropogenic global warming and wildfires.

U.S. burn acreage is actually down 90% since CO2 was at pre-industrial levels, but the Biden administration recently deleted this document, too:


EU And U.S. Crop Yields “Substantially” Reduced, Again

While parts of Western Europe have been baking in recent weeks, Eastern Europe has been suffering unusual summer cold — both climatic phenomena are negatively impacting official crop yield estimates, which have just seen yet another reduction.

The EU’s crop monitoring service has substantially reduced its expectations for the bloc’s 2022 spring crops, amid continued drier-than-usual conditions across large parts of the continent, reads a recent AgriCensus report.

The July report published by Monitoring Agriculture Resources (MARS) showed that hot temperatures continued to have an adverse impact across the region’s key growing regions, while persistent chills east of Germany are causing its own set of headaches. 

At an EU level, 2022 yield forecasts for corn, sunflowers, and soybeans are expected to reduce by 8 to 9%, below the 5-year average, continues the AgriCensus report. Negative impacts on the yield potential of spring crops are most pronounced across large parts of Spain, southern France, central and northern Italy, and central Germany–due to drought; and northern Romania, eastern Hungary, and the Ukraine–due to an unusually cold start to summer.

Many Western European reservoirs are now at a very low levels, and irrigation restrictions are now in place, with French farmers, for example, contending with an imposed 50% reduction in water usage, which will have further knock-on effects to yield as the growing season progresses.

The report noted that there is little that can be now done to reverse the impact. 

Below are the updated yield forecasts as of late-July 2022:

mt/ha2022 Diff June5yrs’avDiff 5yrs’av
Wheat5.54-0.4%5.62-1.4%
Barley4.83-1%4.85-0.3%

 Sunflower 2.18-8%2.34-6.7%
 Soybean 2.72 -9% 2.88 -5.7%
[MARS]


The picture is similar in the states, too, where a myriad of issues, including delayed planting thanks to a historically cold and wet spring, as well as crippling input shortages, seriously hindered yields before a single seed even made it into the ground.

Texas grain acres, for example, “are not looking promising,” according to Mark Welch, Ph.D., AgriLife Extension grain economist in the Department of Agricultural Economics, who adds that this could impact supplies and prices in both the short and long-term.

Texas is facing much lower grain production in 2022 compared to the previous year–a depressing reality that is being echoed across much of the country. Wheat yields were abysmal for much of the Lone Star State, continued Welch, with corn and sorghum projections fairing similarly poorly.

“Cash prices for feed-grade grain in Texas are still at a premium,” he said. “We’re still living on supplies, and harvests in southern parts of the state are trickling in, but yields are below average.”

Many producers in regions where corn and sorghum plants are still progressing were reporting poor crop conditions, with some reports of fields being salvaged as forage for cattle.

“It’s just going to be a tough year for producers to find a profit,” said Welch.

“Grain prices are relatively high, but input costs for everything from fuel to fertilizer are high too. Producers need every penny.”

There is a perfect storm brewing within the global food supply chain, and success stories are few and far between.

Even Russia’s recently agreed upon accord which allowed the export of Ukrainian grains out of the Black Sea appears to have failed, following Moscow’s reported missile attack on the port of Odesa over the weekend.

I’m expecting all of these chickens to come home to roost as early as September/October this year, as the harvest season concludes. These global shortages, and the running down of the whatever reserves nations’ have left, combined with the coming energy shortages, particularly in Europe, could make for a truly troublesome Northern Hemisphere winter.

Make hay while the sun shines; prepare for the worst, hope for the best–and other such clichés.

It’s now late July, and while myself and my family are busy harvesting and enjoying our abundant summer crops here on our Portuguese homestead, attention has already turned to autumn/winter. And this week, we’re sowing thousands of brassica and other cool weather heirloom vegetable seeds in preparation for the grocery stores shelves running dry.

I suggest those in the NH do the same.

Don’t rely on corrupt, backwards-thinking governments to come to your rescue when the SHTF.

Rely on you.

Rely on your local community — build relationships, now.

The COLD TIMES are returning, the mid-latitudes are REFREEZING in line with historically low solar activitycloud-nucleating Cosmic Rays, and a meridional jet stream flow (among many other forcings, including the impending release of the Beaufort Gyre).

Prepare accordingly — learn the facts, relocate if need be, and grow your own.

    Remember the 1/3-1/3-1/3 Formula when harvesting crops.
    That is
    1/3 – Self Use
    1/3 – Seeds for planting the next crop

    You still have time to grow peas in NH.. it can mature before the first frost. But even if not it fixes nitrogen in the soil.

  3. Is there a link to this “Fire Issue”- letter that got deleted by the Biden-administration?

  4. Kent Mattingley

    For some reason your site doesn’t have the buttons needed to share the page to Twitter & Facebook. Please put them back 🙂

  5. I think i found reference to the “Fire-letter” by using way-back-machine– there was a stored a link in 2011.. https://web.archive.org/web/20111015083335/https://www.nifc.gov/PIO_bb/Policy/FederalWildlandFireManagementPolicy_2001.pdf

  6. From what I saw of Lesotho and the Eastern Cape in early ’77 there wasn’t a lot of central heating in the rondavels back then… Europe will see the direwolf at the door soon enough too… the winter [of the world’s discontent] is already well underway.

    Former German Chancellor Gerhard Schröder was seen in a luxury hotel in Moscow today.

    He was asked if he was in town to see President Putin; Schröder did NOT answer. He was then asked why he was in Moscow and replied “It’s a beautiful city.”

    COVERT INTEL sources say that Schröder did in fact, meet discreetly with President Putin, in the Kremlin. The meeting allegedly did not go well . . . for Schröder.

    According to a source in a position to know, Schröder began his conversation with Putin with a wise crack about “. . . rumors in Berlin that Russia might very well nuke NATO Capital cities.” Putin allegedly responded “It looks like that may have to happen.” Which wiped the smile right off Schröder’s face.

    The meeting was deadly serious and Schröder was told it is in the interests of his country that the government of Germany understand things have “never been this serious in the history of Russia or Europe.”

    Schröder was told that Europe has gone out of its way to actually harm Russia, and Russia is in a position to return that harm “a hundred times worse.”

    Schröder was also told that just enough Russian gas will flow to Germany and Europe to meet daily needs, but no extra which might allow European countries to store -up reserves for the winter.

    He was also told that if Europe does not stop the sanctions against Russia before the winter, and return the money and property seized from Russia’s Sovereign Wealth Funds and from wealthy Russian citizens, “a lot of Europeans are going to freeze to death this winter.”

    Schröder scoffed and allegedly told Putin, he wouldn’t do that to innocent people. Putin allegedly replied “it isn’t me, it’s their own government doing it to them. Your governments are harming Russia. Russia is going to harm them in return. If they get testy, and try any military moves,. “there are going to be consequences the likes of which no one has ever seen in history.”

    Schröder pointed out that Russia cannot defeat all of NATO. That allegedly begot the following VERBATM response: “Russia cannot defeat all of NATO militarily, but we can take all of NATO down with us . . . . and we will.”

    Schröder is said to have departed the meeting pale and sweating.

    UPDATE 8:31 PM EDT —

    I am receiving Intelligence Reports from the south of Ukraine saying they are observing a “massive transport” of Russian troops towards Kherson.

    The armor and troops are being seen in Melitopol and Novooleksiivka…

    I understand your information, but you need to specifically address information by climate scientists.

    This was posted yesterday:
    It’s getting hotter in Greenland and last weekend temperatures rose enough to cause 18 billion tons of the country’s ice sheet to melt over a three-day period.

    Scientists have warned about the impending fate of Greenland’s ice sheet and say what happened between July 15 and 17 is the latest massive melting event contributing to an increase in the global sea level.

    The amount of water from the July 15-17 melt—about 6 billion tons per day, or 18 billion tons over the weekend—is enough to “cover West Virginia in a foot of water—four inches per day, roughly,” Ted Scambos, a senior research scientist at the University of Colorado’s Earth Science and Observation Center and National Snow and Ice Data Center, told U.S. TODAY.

    1. Bruce you’ve got my gaydar pinging, but you need to specifically address information by the IPCC climate scientists and globalist world authorities.

      Bruce you should probably address your complaints about climate to the Sun.

  8. Very good articles today, I could never come up with such good reporting. I read Ice Age Now every day for nine years and this fills the void since Robert’s sad passing. The Acres Burned Annually USA chart is my fave today. I like charts. I’m here to learn. I’m wondering if the use of aircraft to fight fires lowered the amount as they designed better aircraft including helicopters. Also better heavy equipment like bulldozers and trucks to haul them. I was watching vids last month with chippers/mulchers mounted on the front of skid loaders clearing brush in forest lands to prevent fires.
    Any five year old could look at the Acres Burned chart and see it’s not worser than ever right now. What’s wrong with the Left, are they not smarter than a five year old?

    1. I had a thought on that as I read the post. Land use changes over the last century would explain part of the reduction. We logged the nation heavily after the 1930s. When I worked in the woods in the 1970s in Northern California I helped log the last of the old growth trees, fir and pine. Clear cuts were the normal practice back then. Many roads were punched through the forests. Access to areas was greatly increased.

    2. Any five year old can see that the five year old(s) are not worser than ever right now.

      1. Johnny Bravo is always saying worser, cracks me up. Good charts on his vids, the hair is a bit much though…

  9. I find this stuff fascinating. All of the peaches fell off of my trees this year, and all fruit trees here in Northern California also suffered fruit loss after the bloom. Gardeners are seeing their gardens are at least one full month or more behind where they should be for this time of the season. And here on Electroverse I am reading that this natural phenomenon has caused similar crop issues all around the NH.

    I would add one more thought. All of my life I have been highly seasonal. Early every year I get a “spring boost”. This would typically happen around late February into April. Of interest is that over the last decade the “spring boost” started as early as the 3rd week of January. Was I reacting to the global warming? This year nothing happened with the exception that I felt pretty lousy for much of this year. Then around early June the “spring boost” struck and lifted me out of my gloom. Never in my life has it come this late in the year. Because of this I have become extra aware of just how connected I am with nature. Just the same as crops failing and fruit falling off of trees, my “fruit” failed to materialize this year. All of my best discoveries from my study of climate material have come early in the year during my “spring boost”. This year I found myself wondering if I was about to enter a new stage of older age informity setting in. Now after the “spring boost” I feel like I will live to be at least 100 years of age. I find it amazing that I can be so strongly affected by Nature.

    1. FYI – It’s well known that receiving/recovering from a timely wedgie can also be as effective as a “spring boost” and help you become extra aware of just how connected you are with nature… or even better… just go commando or Comanche.
