question

What modulates our Sun? The majority of science work on the principle that the Sun is self modulating and each solar cycle is a product of a random number generator. There are others that suspect the Sun is modulated by the planets with a special emphasis on Uranus & Neptune. Thanks to Carl Smith who has recently left us we have new knowledge that significantly adds to Jose, Landscheidt & Charvàtovà's work.

Pakistan blizzard dumps three feet of snow

IceAgeNow - Thu, 12/14/2017 - 16:50

Roads blocked, tourists stranded and schools close i Galiyat region.

_____________

13 Dec 2017 – More than three feet (1 m) of snow covered resort towns, bringing roadblocks, power breakdowns and severed supplies to mountain communities.

Abbottabad DC Aurangzab Haider ordered closure of all public sector schools in nine union councils till December 16. These union councils include Beeran Gali, Seer Gharbi, Seer Sharqi, Tajwal, Nathiagali, Nambli Mara, Patan Kalan, Plakh and Nagri Bala.

Electricity disappeared with the snowfall. “It will take days to restore power supply,” said a Pesco official. He said Pesco personnel were unable to move equipment in snow.

Unusually Bold Climate Fraud from the UN – Video

IceAgeNow - Wed, 12/13/2017 - 18:47

Tony Heller exposes yet more global warming fraud. He also comments on that starving polar bear.
________________________

As to that starving polar bear, I flew over Baffin Bay on Saturday (9 Dec 17), where sea ice is slightly above normal, says Tony. Whatever made this polar bear too weak to hunt has nothing to do with global warming or sea ice.

Leaving polar bears aside, in this video Tony attacks a new article entitled “Global warming may harm children for life.”

Citing U.N. sources, the article claims that by 2070 the number of days with the mean temperature above 32°C will rise from one per year right now, to 43 days per year.

“There’s so many things wrong with this claim that it’s difficult to begin.” says Tony.

To begin with, 32°C is 90°F.

A day with a 90°F mean temperature is extremely hot. An example would be a day with daytime temperatures above 100°F, and nighttime temperatures above 80°F. There are very few places in the U.S. where this could even happen, says Tony.

Especially when you realize that the trend for days when the temperature has exceeded 90°F have been declining – declining! – for the past century, since 1917.

Declining temperature trend – Courtesy Tony Heller

This phony narrative is also being pushed by Stanford and M.I.T., formerly respectable institutions, says Tony.

How the snowfall affected Europeans

IceAgeNow - Wed, 12/13/2017 - 12:38

11 Dec 17 – In the UK, some counties received up to 28 mm of snow, breaking many long-term records. On large highways, snowdrifts caused many road accidents, and some residential areas of London lost electricity.

In Germany, about 300 flights were canceled in Frankfurt alone. Problems arose also in railway transport. There were numerous accidents on the roads, and at least one person died.

In Switzerland, snowdrifts blocked part of the railways, especially in the mountains, and avalanche danger increased.

Record Swiss Snowfall

IceAgeNow - Wed, 12/13/2017 - 11:50

The canton of Valais experienced some of the heaviest December snowfall in years over the last few days, not just in the mountains but down to the valley floor.

Sion, the cantonal capital, received a record 65cms (25 inches) of snow over the weekend. Around 80cms (31 inches) fell at higher elevations.

Note: According to Wikipedia, a canton is a type of administrative division of a country, usually smaller than counties, departments, or provinces. The best-known cantons – and the most politically important – are those of Switzerland. Theoretically (and historically), Swiss cantons are semi-sovereign states.

Descent into Little Ice Age conditions in 10 years

IceAgeNow - Tue, 12/12/2017 - 15:22

Response to my post about this year’s record cold summer in Denmark.

Descent into Little Ice Age conditions in 10 years

By J.H. Walker

Looks like the scientific findings, peer reviewed, and published in several main stream scientific European publications, that Solar Warm periods like the one which ended in 2008 in climate terms, abruptly end with the entry into a Grand Solar Minimum, the changeover period before the climate change is locked into the fossil records is 10 years.

Their studies were based on the Late Antique Little Ice Age (LALIA), which, coupled with worldwide volcanic eruptions gave rise the Black Death, famine and war, and reduced the Human population of Europe by a third.

Their other finding for Europe at least, is that the climate changes from a benign warm to a cold, wet and very, very windy climate.

Given that Denmark is situated on the North Sea and at the entrance to the Baltic and in the same air stream wind directions, Ii would suggest the Scandinavia, the Baltic States and the Great Britain is all covered by this finding.

Yet you will not see the UK Met Office publishing similar reports, they are fully signed up to supporting the AGW war on energy and the levies to support Carbon Credits at the expense of the people of the UK as a whole.

_____________________

Note: According to Wikipedia, the LALIA was a long-lasting Northern Hemisphere cooling period from 536 to about 660 AD. It followed three immense volcanic eruptions in 536, 540 and 547. One of the suspected volcanic sites is the Rabaul caldera, in the western Pacific, which erupted around 540. The extreme weather events of 535–536 were the early phenomena of the century-long global temperature decline.

Heavy snow brings transport chaos across Europe

IceAgeNow - Mon, 12/11/2017 - 22:02

More than 900 flight cancellations and delays in Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands and the U.K.

About 400 flights were cancelled at Schiphol – one of Europe’s biggest airports – about 200 in Brussels, and more than 300 at Frankfurt airport, the busiest in Germany.

In Germany the heavy snow caused many car crashes and traffic jams, as well as train delays.

In the UK, dozens of flights were cancelled at Heathrow, road conditions were treacherous in many areas, thousands of homes lost power, and hundreds of schools were shut.

 

Snow also caused travel disruption in northern Italy, and forced closure of schools in Liguria, Piedmont and Tuscany.

Record-setting snowfall in Alabama – Video

IceAgeNow - Sun, 12/10/2017 - 20:40

Along with rare snowfall in Louisiana.

As of Friday night, Randolph and Calhoun counties in eastern Alabama had each reported 10 inches of snow according to the National Weather Service in Birmingham.

The weather service logged reports of 8 inches, 7 inches and multiple reports of 6 inches across the state.

The Birmingham International Airport had recorded 4 inches of snow as of noon Friday, making it the third highest December snowfall on record.

Although perhaps not all that impressive to Northerners, Mobile’s six-tenths of an inch as of 9:30 p.m Friday evening was still enough to set a record.

And it is COLD. In the live animal market in Erzurum’s Oltu district, sellers burned car tires to warm the livestock.

9 Dec 2017 – The lowest temperature was recorded in Yayladüzü village, with 17.7 degrees below zero.

In the Eastern Anatolia Region, fountains, water pools and rivers are covered in ice. Residents struggled to start their vehicles early in the morning.

80 cm (2′-8″) of snow

In the Eastern Anatolia Region, snowfall reaching about 80 cm (waist deep) in the town of Posof left many vehicles stuck in the city center.

A shopkeeper said, “In Posof, life is paralyzed.” The villagers do not come because the roads are closed, and we are working to open the front of our shops. ”

Heavy snow in UK

IceAgeNow - Sun, 12/10/2017 - 15:36

Power cuts, disrupted air, rail and road travel in many parts of the country.

Some Welsh hills experienced around 80cm (more than 2 ft) of snow. “But that’s an outlier.”

Otherwise, the deepest snow was found in Sennybridge, near Brecon in Wales, where up to 30cm (12inches) was recorded. High Wycombe saw 17cm, with flurries reaching London and southern England. Places like Wales and Shawbury in Shropshire experienced around 15cm of the white stuff.

Up to 24,000 homes in Oxfordshire, Berkshire and Wiltshire lost power. Another 2,900 customers lost power across the South West of England and Wales.

 

Drivers have been advised by police to avoid non-essential journeys, and flights have been disrupted at several airports, including Heathrow, where snowploughs were used to clear the runways.

Buckinghamshire County Council says the majority of its schools will be closed on Monday, with similar announcements in Oxfordshire, Northamptonshire and Hertfordshire Counties.

Mexican snowpocalypse exposes all-out AGW fraud

“It is the next ice age we need to fear and the freezing of our crops.”
– Kenneth Lund

Mexican snowpocalypse exposes all-out AGW fraud

By Kenneth Lund

The Snowpocalypse in northern Mexico explains it all – the total and complete all-out fraud and exposed lie of global warming and the carbon tax since it all started back in the 70’s. People who were not sure before now understand that they were taken for a ride.

The fact that Mexico is frozen from coast to coast beneath the tropic of cancer is strong evidence of climatic cooling in the last 75 years – like most of us already knew. This would not be the case if it hadn’t turned colder since the 1940’s. Any of these past charts showing this supposed increase in surface temps between 1980 and 2000 is a complete misrepresentation of facts. If you look at the John Daly website of station temps in rural areas, (some dating back to late 1700’s) you see no change at all during that time frame. (plus the satellite record confirms that trend in the 80’s)

And since 2000, land areas have cooled by over 1 degree F, along with all-time record ice growth in Greenland, Antarctica and over 90 percent of glaciers growing.

GW is the biggest fraud and lie in the history of the human race since homo sapiens were first walking on the planet.

It is the next ice age we need to fear and the freezing of our crops.

We will be fighting in the streets for food long before we’re covered by ice.

Widespread snow accumulations of 1 to 3 inches brings Texas city to a crawl.
__________________

8 Dec 2017 – Houston’s second earliest snowfall in recorded history set not one but two snow records.

Before midnight, 0.1″ of snow had fallen at IAH setting a record for December 7th. Snowfall after midnight totaled 0.6″, a record for December 8th. In total, Houston officially received just shy of an inch of snow.

One of the biggest snowfalls in history for Texas gulf coast

It was only the third time since 1895 that Brownsville has received accumulating snowfall.

Meanwhile, It was the first snowfall in 13 years in Corpus Christi, which recorded between five and seven inches of snow.

Ninety miles northwest of Houston, College Station recorded five inches of snow.

Snowpocalypse in northern Mexico

IceAgeNow - Sat, 12/09/2017 - 12:16

“Highways are jammed with stuck semi’s and are not moving at all.”

Here are excerpts from a post today from Jim Stone, who lives in Mexico:
————
IT IS SNOWING ALL OVER MEXICO

Highways are jammed with stuck semi’s and are not moving at all. The Mexican states of Sonora, Chiuaua, Nuevo Leon, Coahuila, Durango, and Zacotecas are all experiencing freezing temperatures of -5 celsius or more during the day. It is obviously going to freeze in Aguascalientes and Guanajuato tonight.

The Mexican news showed scenes of highways in all the states above, and it looks like a snowpocalypse. Some areas are just good for snowball fights but they went through the states one at a time and several of them had snow so deep the semis were stranded on the highways. The video they showed had everything at a standstill

The tropics are defined as zones that do not freeze. Much of this snow zone is below the tropic of cancer. The entire country of Mexico is predominantly frozen from coast to coast. It has been decades since that has happened. This would be impossible if global warming was as advertised, and snowstorms really are a thing of the past. Al Gore just got exposed by an inconvenient truth!

Yes, and while Mexico is stuck in the snow, Mexicans are enjoying a very steep new U.N. mandated carbon tax!

Mexico – Snow paralyzes roads, airports and schools

IceAgeNow - Sat, 12/09/2017 - 12:08

In northern states of the country (with videos).

9 Dec 2017 – Snowfall in northern states Coahuila, Chihuahua and Nuevo Leon, forced closure of some highways on Friday morning as the roads were covered with snow, resulting in a danger for motorists. There is also cancellation of flights and classes.

Conditions are likely to persist because the CDMX predicted temperatures from 0 to 5 degrees for the weekend

In Chihuahua, the State Civil Protection Unit reported that the first flights at the Chihuahua and Juarez airports were suspended and some road sections remain closed due to snowfall.

Education authorities suspended classes in the capital, Chihuahua, and in the municipalities of Balleza, Guachochi, Cuauhtémoc and Parral, due to the snowfall.
