Record Lows Set Across The U.S.; Freeze Sees Smallest NW Cherry Harvest In 14 Years; Peer-Reviewed Science Shows There Is No Climate Emergency; + WMO Secretary-General Admits La Nina Is “Slowing Rise In Global Temperatures”

Record Lows Set Across The U.S.

The MSM are all-too keep to ram busted heat records down the public’s throat –hot benchmarks bolstered by the ignored UHI effect and an overarching heat bias in the datasets– but when it comes to record cold, the mainstream often fall quiet.

Below are just a handful of the unreported low temperature records set across the U.S. in recent days (data courtesy of the NWS):

  • The NWS at Boise, ID reported a new record low temperature at Twin Falls on Monday, September 12 — a Low of 40F (4.4C) was noted, breaking the previous benchmark of 42F (5.6C) set in 2010.
  • Sunday afternoon saw a new cold record set at Laramie Airport, WY — the daily high on Sept 11 struggled to just 25F (-3.9C), busting the old record of 27F (-2.8C) set back in 1974.
  • The NWS at Dodge City, KS recently registered 41F (5C) at Garden City Regional Airport on Sept 11, a reading that usurped the previous record of 44F (6.7C) from 1989.
  • On Sunday morning a record low of 43F (6.1C) was set at Russel, KS, busting the 45F (7.2F) set in 2007.
  • And finally, though to cap off a by no means exhaustive list, Livingston, MT recently tied a cold temperature benchmark — the 27F (-2.8F) from 1989.

Freeze Sees Smallest NW Cherry Harvest In 14 Years

The 2022 Pacific Northwest cherry crop is the smallest in 14 years due to persistent spring cold and a historic snowstorm.

A severe, record-breaking winter storm that hit Oregon and Washington in mid-April is being blamed for the smaller-than-usual fruit harvest, with the late-season Arctic blast occurring during the region’s key cherry blossom bloom.

According to B.J. Thurlby, president of both the Washington State Fruit Commission and Northwest Cherries, a snow event during the cherry bloom had never been documented before in weather books dating back more than a century.

He said this year’s crop is on course to be the smallest since at least 2008 (solar minimum of cycle 24).

“The crop should finish up at 130,000 tons going to the fresh market,” Thurlby told OPB. “A normal crop is 210,000 tons going to the fresh market … fewer cherries will be available on the market, with the NW being one of the largest exporters in the nation.”

Charles Poindexter, co-owner of Sherwood Orchards, said his apple season was also affected by the weather–that it started at least a week late because of the historically cold conditions.

Peer-Reviewed Science Shows There Is No Climate Emergency

The Science’ shows weather-related disasters have declined — this is an irrefutable fact.

The below slides –compiled by Michael Shellenberger— are lifted from peer-reviewed scientific studies and/or the IPCC.

Citations are clearly listed on the graphics.

We’re told to follow said ‘The Science’, but if we do, with honestly and with integrity, then ALL claims of a Climate Emergency immediately fall apart.

Understanding the above slides leaves dutiful members of the public with a choice: “Do I believe in the ideology and in the incessant propagandizing, or do I put my trust in the available data?” The weak and easily-manipulated choose the former and, unfortunately, such folk make up an increasingly large portion of the populous. Group-think wins over independent thought. It is perceived safer to exist as a sheep in a herd lead by a tyrannical shepherd than it is to be a lone wolf living for the truth.

The UK

Briefly, a lot was made of the UK’s summer this year — the AGW rhetoric called it catastrophically hot and devastatingly dry.

The ‘official’ data, however, isn’t anywhere near as alarming. With an average temperature of 15.7C (60.3F), it was the UK’s fourth warmest summer, and fifth driest — not much to write home about.

WMO Secretary-General Admits La Nina Is “Slowing Rise In Global Temperatures”

As per a recent World Meteorological Organization (WMO) report, it is likely that the protracted La Niña will last until at least the end of the year, becoming this century’s first “triple-dip“ La Niña, spanning three consecutive northern hemisphere winters (southern hemisphere summers).

The WMO Update predicts the continuation of the current La Niña over the next six months, with a 70% chance in September-November 2022 but gradually decreasing to 55% in December-February 2022/2023.

La Niña conditions in the tropical Pacific have strengthened as trade winds intensified during mid-July to mid-August 2022, affecting temperature and precipitation patterns and exacerbating drought and flooding in different parts of the world.

“It is exceptional to have three consecutive years with a la Niña event,” WMO Secretary-General Petteri Taalas was quoted saying in the online report. “Its cooling influence is temporarily slowing the rise in global temperatures…”

This may not sound like much of a win for us realists, but over the recent years it has become increasingly rare to hear anyone in any position of power admit that a natural forcing can exert any influence at all on catastrophic anthropogenic global warming.

Given the irrefutable data, however, Petteri Taalas had no choice. But don’t worry, he quickly returns to the AGW Party line: All naturally occurring climate events are now framed within the context of human-induced climate change, and to that point, Taalas adds that the observed slow-down in rising temperatures is “temporary”, and “will not halt or reverse the long-term warming trend.”

The ‘definite assertion’ contained within that claim should ring the alarm bells to any critical thinker. Taalas cannot know what the future holds, he can only speculate. AGW Party members, however, are instructed to deliver a message of clear cut dread, to promote an unambiguous existential threat, to seed a certainty of gloom-and-doom: “The Climate Emergency is here and it’s here to stay –no matter what the sun, the oceans or the atmosphere do– and you need to pay for it.”
