Historic Low Temperature Records Fall In New Zealand
New Zealand is smashing long-standing low temperature records left, right and center, yet the mainstream media couldn’t care less. They’re quick to jump on heatwaves and wildfires occurring in this part of the world, but it’s crickets when it comes to unprecedented cold.
Cold records have been slain across both islands this week.
Below are just five benchmarks that fell on the North Island on Friday morning, as collated by MetService:
Many more October record lows are reported to have fallen, including the 1.8C (35.2F) in Auckland and the -3C (26.6F) at Wanaka Airport. Also, rare frosts were reported at Westport.
Accompanying the anomalous lows have been historic spring snows. Very rare flurries fell at sea level on the remote Chatham Island. And, as reported yesterday, Christchurch logged its first sea-level October snow since 1969.
This is a truly newsworthy event, but I’m not naive and there are no prizes for guessing why it’s passing by unreported.
‘Power Shortage Warning’
This week’s cold was even more bracing thanks to a ‘power shortage warning’. Across the North Island, ‘a national grid emergency’ led to pleas to the public to save power by not charging electronic devices and only heating the room you are in.
The national grid operator issued the warning Wednesday morning, declaring a “North Island emergency”.
The issue has since been resolved, thank fully, in part thanks to the efforts of those restricting their power usage.
“Fortunately we were able to resolve the issue before we had to cut additional demand which would have resulted in some consumers being disconnected,” said Transpower CEO Alison Andrew. “We are grateful to those New Zealanders who took action to reduce their usage.”
Growers Counting Cost Of Polar Blast
Bannockburn winegrower James Dicey said things were “not great”. His dam was almost completely drained fighting yesterday’s frost, and a helicopter had also been hired, he said.
Cromwell fruitgrower Simon Webb said there was extensive damage to his crop of apricots which “took a big hit”.
While North Otago Federated Farmers president Jared Ross lamented that the cold front was “not ideal” and that he is expecting lambs to have been lost, with the full extent not known until the weekend.
Cold Central Europe
Europe’s temperature data for September continues to trickle in.
September 2022 in the Czech Republic finished with an average temperature of 12C (53.6F), which is a full 1C below the multidecadal norm:
The story was similar in Serbia, with temperatures holding below the average there, too:
September in Poland was very cold, wit the country’s average anomaly coming out at -1.47C below normal.
The coldest conditions were suffered in the Northeast where anomalies of more than -2C were logged:
And finally in Hungary, September had an average temperature of 15.5C (59.9F), which is 0.5C below the multidecadal norm.
In addition –and as was also the case with all the nations mentioned above– last month was a wetter than average month. In fact, for many regions of Hungary (see white dotted areas on bottom right map) it was the wettest September since 1901:
Historically Wet Australia
Briefly, as we’re on the topic of above average precipitation, history has just been set in Sydney.
Despite the absurd prophesies made in 2007 –by activist-scientist and ‘Australian Of The Year’ Tim Flannery who proclaimed “rains won’t fill Australia’s dams” due to global warming– this year’s accumulated rainfall surpassed 2200mm on Thursday, making 2022 the wettest year on record for the Emerald City with 3 months left to go!
For reference, the previous wettest year was 1950 (2194mm), and previously, 1860 (2110mm).
Bird Flu Outbreak Labelled “Unprecedented” and “Scary”
According to authorities, an outbreak of the highly pathogenic strain of H5N1 influenza (aka bird flu) is showing no signs of relenting.
Some 50 million birds have been culled amid efforts to mitigate the spread of the virus, which continues to spread across the Northern Hemisphere.
More than 2,600 outbreaks have been reported among domesticated flocks, as well as more than 3,500 cases in wild birds from 37 European countries, according to the latest overview of the epidemic from European Food Safety Authority (EFSA).
The strain, a clade of H5N1 highly pathogenic avian influenza (22.214.171.124b) that emerged in the early 2010s, usually follows a seasonal cycle, with infections detected in winter and case numbers dropping off by summer. This year, however, things were different. Mass deaths of seabirds in spring foreshadowed a record-breaking summer, with the number of outbreaks from June to September five times higher in 2022 than during the same period in 2021.
“The severity of the situation and scale of the impact is unprecedented and very, very scary. It’s a huge crisis that could turn into a catastrophe unless we get ahead of it,” said Jeff Knott, director of policy for the UK conservation charity, the RSPB.
My question: Is this another aspect of ‘campaign fear’? A ploy to turn the masses off of eating ‘dirty, disease-riddled’ poultry? Could it be setting the stage for a mass avian vaccination program? Or, is this a genuine threat that we –particularly us homesteaders– need to concern ourselves with.
What is assured, however, is that this is another difficult query to add to the near-insurmountable list of difficult queries we, the truth-seekers, now have to navigate our way through.
They’re Jabbing Cows With mRNA
According to local reports, farmers in New South Wales, Australia are being “forced” to jab their herds with mRNA ‘vaccines’.
One NSW dairy farmer reportedly complied, and of her 200 head of cattle, 35 died instantly.
An email from a concerned neighbor of the dairy farmer reads:
“Dairy herd DNA is altered. Milk is altered and you CONSUME IT! Butter constitution, yoghurt, cheese is altered, MEAT is altered Will chicken and other meats be next? Time to grow your own folks, and maybe develop herds that are private, none tagged, and never vaccinated. Time to set up a community farm association with member/ farmers who are not part of the system, have herds/animals that are not jabbed or tagged so a community of private people can be consumers of organic produced livestock. It’s time to fend for ourselves as an organised community. Watch this space.”
Can anybody in Australia, or elsewhere, confirm this report?
Scheduled Internet Blackout Inbound…?
And finally, I have heard word, however preposterous-sounding, that a scheduled internet shutdown could be on the cards, an event tied to the resetting of the financial system.
It seems like the Federal Reserve and Central Banks are out of money — cash is clearly running low.
My understanding is that something like an XRP, i.e. a blockchain technology, will be the foundations on which the new system will be built. XRP’s focus from its inception has been on ‘cross border payments’ (replacing SWIFT), and it has conducted many a meeting with top level government officials and Central Bankers over the years.
If the internet goes down soon, then this, again to my mind, would signal the rebooting of the financial system and the switching over to the new one.
As Chief Technology Officer of Ripple (XRP) David Schwartz said as clear as day: “We are in the middle of rebuilding the financial system”. And it is being ‘rebuilt’ under the radar yet right under our noses. Bitcoin was never ‘the chosen one’, it was always XRP:
As financial author Linda P. Jones recently tweeted, “Our financial system changed on September 30, 2022 (citing US Corporation ending, the end of US Gov fiscal year, Vatican returned funds, commercial traders went from short to long silver, CEOs resigned, and 2 banks rumored to be failing) and is still transitioning. If the internet goes down, that’s the switchover,” she concludes.
For better or worse (likely worse), this, I believe, is their plan, and all that us peasants can do is buckle up and hunker down for the ride (and maybe buy some XRP/hope for that grid-destroying X-Flare — to each their own).
