Too Much Snow Closes New Zealand Ski Resort
Ski resorts across the Southern Hemisphere are having a ‘great season’ with ‘massive snowstorms dumping feet of snow on the mountains’, reports snowbrains.com.
The New Zealand ski season has been one for the record books, according to unofficialnetworks.com, and a number of ski areas are struggling to stay open with all the new snow.
Mt Lyford Ski Area has been forced to close once again after receiving feet upon feet of record-setting accumulations.
The resort, located near Christchurch on NZ’s South Island, announced the ‘bad news’ on social media:
SORRY. We tried. We are not going to make opening today. There is just too much snow on our road, the visibility is not improving. The lifts also have a good amount of rime ice on them so we will be spending the rest of the day getting everything sorted for a sunny Saturday with plenty of pow.
Of course, such climatic phenomena don’t qualify for mainstream publication, for obvious reasons — they’re cold.
And there are yet more ‘inconveniences’ on the way, too, with 22+ NZ Ski Areas expecting additional heavy flurries over the next 48 hours.
Rare Cool Down Sweeps UAE And Oman
Similarly ignored by the corporate media are the rare cool and rainy days sweeping Oman and the UAE this week.
Yesterday, at 14:45 local time, Al Ain peaked at ‘just’ 28.8C (83.8F) — a full 16C below its July average (44.8C/112.6F).
The rain has extended further west today (July 27) and also northwards into Dubai and Abu Dhabi — nigh-unprecedented for the month of July.
The U.S. may of busted a handful of heat records in recent days, but the situation isn’t anything to write home about–not even close, it’s called ‘summer’. Watching MSM tricksters dupe the masses into becoming fearful of a season is deeply troubling.
The below temperature anomaly map puts things into perspective, just as the U.S. government launches heat.gov: “a website designed to help keep Americans safe from extreme heat.” I note there’s no ‘cold.gov’, which is curious, given that cold, by some calculations, kills 20x more people than heat.
Despite the ‘fiery’ rhetoric, however, much of the CONUS is experiencing temperatures BELOW the climatological average, an anomalous cool down that is forecast to persist into August, and across a high percentage of the North American continent, too:
This wasn’t the case in the past.
On July 25, 1936, Iowa suffered its all-time record high of 117F, set at Atlantic and Logan.
With an overnight low of 84F at both stations, the average temperature for the day finished at a staggering 100.5F.
Picture the furor if such readings were logged today.
Imagine the EOTW headlines and MSM-‘expert’ testifications that ‘this is the end’ and that crippling ‘energy reductions’ and expensive ‘carbon taxes’ are our only hopes to avoid our extinction (there’s always an element of hope, a carrot and stick).
But comparable climate ignorance has been around for as long as man has had to endure ‘weather’. It’s what we do about it that has mellowed somewhat — from sacrificial virgins of days past, to the eradication of a cheap and reliable fuel source today.
The below paragraph is lifted from page 2 of The Topeka Daily Capital, Kansas, dated June 18, 1882:
“Because the majority, perhaps, who belong to this generation have not investigated the subject anterior to their own lives, the belief is prevalent that great storms and cyclones are a new phenomena of nature”.
And on the point of ‘great storms’, where are the Atlantic hurricanes this season? As of July 26 there have been none.
Quiet Atlantic Hurricane Season (So Far)
Back in May, NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center predicted an “above-average hurricane activity year”. The agency’s outlook for the 2022 Atlantic hurricane season, which extends from June 1 to Nov 30, saw a 65% chance of an above-normal season, a 25% chance of a near-normal season, and a 10% chance of a below-normal season.
NOAA’s predictions, however, are based on a failing global warming narrative that calls for linearly rising temperatures, less snowfall, and increased storms; and as a result, reality routinely proves the agency’s forecasts spectacularly wrong.
For the 2022 Atlantic Hurricane season, NOAA expected as many as 21 named storms (winds of 39 mph or higher), of which 10 could become hurricanes (winds of 74 mph or higher), including as many as 6 major hurricanes (category 3, 4 or 5; with winds of 111 mph or higher).
NOAA provided these ranges with a 70% confidence.
Admittedly, the season is still young with the calendar only just about to flip to August–with early-Aug the historical start of the season; but nevertheless, the 2022 hurricane season is proving a disappointment for the AGW Party, with three named storms registered in the Atlantic basin all year (to July 26), all peaking at tropical storm strength.
By this time in 2005, for example, there had already been 3 major hurricanes, of which 2 had hit in the United States.
Also, four of the past five seasons have seen their first hurricane form in July, with the earliest being Elsa, which formed on July 2, 2021. You have to go back to 2017 to find the last ‘first’ hurricane to develop in August — Hurricane Franklin, on Aug 9.
July 2022 has seen relative tranquility in the tropics, which, according to meteorologists, is thanks to strong winds aloft and dry, dusty air coming off the coast of Africa — high-elevation winds help prevent storms developing into tropical systems, while dust can act as an atmospheric stabilizer.
Traditionally, August brings a subsiding of this Sahara dust; the month also sees environmental conditions across the Atlantic Basin become more conducive for tropical development, with Aug 11 being the average date for the first hurricane (1991-2020).
The month of August, historically, sees two hurricanes develop, while the average first major hurricane –a category 3 or stronger– rarely occurs before Sept 1, which is close to the statistical peak of hurricane season of Sept 10.
La Niña –a cooling of Region 3.4 of the Pacific– is usually a driver for Atlantic hurricanes, and us entering a very rare third a Niña was a factor in NOAA’s ‘above average’ season prediction. But that hasn’t played out as expected, at least not so far — we’re currently on for an ‘average’ Atlantic hurricane season, at best, which NOAA put at a 25% probability.
The Climate Prediction Center is due to update its seasonal outlook in early-August. And although things can turn on a dime, if NOAA honestly interpret the current data then they’ll announce that the outlook for the first half of Aug remains eerily quiet.
General ignorance is bred, often intentionally, through incessant mainstream media propaganda.
CNN director, Charlie Chester, was caught saying as much:
“Like, you can shape an entire people’s perception about anything based on how you do it. Right? Just by forcing a story…”
And regarding ‘climate change’, Chester had this to say, “Pandemic-like stories we’ll beat to death, but that one’s got longevity. You know what I mean? Like there’s a definitive ending to the pandemic. It’ll taper off to a point that it’s not a problem anymore. Climate change can take years, so they’ll [CNN] probably be able to milk that quite a bit.”
Chester concluded, “Be prepared, it’s coming. Climate change is going to be the next COVID thing for CNN. We are going to hone in on it”.
Unfortunately for Chester, the masses are slowly stirring from their formation — more and more Americans are losing trust in the media with each passing day, with each historical story that the present reveals to be false.
This should be seen as a beacon of hope. There is a way to go, clearly, but the momentum is on our side.
The COLD TIMES are returning, the mid-latitudes are REFREEZING in line with historically low solar activity, cloud-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.
