    Warming on Ice and Deep Sixing the Democratic Party
    Published on June 7, 2018

    Quote Global
    What do global warming cheerleaders deserve after ramming down our collective imaginations the most stupendous lie in the history of the world? As world temperatures plunge, as climate change intensifies, humanity is facing a large group of conspirators who keep insisting on something that is not true. Fake news is the order of the day and nowhere is that more clearly demonstrated than it is in the manmade global warming story.

    The real climate deniers are the ones who deny the truth of climate change, which is the truth of Mother Nature, not some made up political fantasy tale backed by scientists who sold their souls to the dollar. There can no longer be any doubt that we are facing a cooling planet, a planet with suddenly shortening growing seasons, which will dramatically hurt the agricultural sector. And according to the former director of the CIA, we also have manmade global cooling, which is assisting natural solar cycles and the ever increasing volcano eruptions that is also driving cooling.

    Aggression of the Imagination Level of Intelligence – The negative expression of aggression on this level of awareness is the calculated use of the imagination to enslave men. Psychological warfare is an example, but beyond that, it is the armed use of the imagination by men who know that what people think about themselves is what they become. Thus, there can be no greater aggression than to consciously manipulate and promote unsuspecting men and women into seeing themselves or the world as something they or it is not, in order that they may be exploited.

    We might as well bring back the Popes from the early Middle Ages and start believing, as some people still do, that the earth is flat. I meet perfectly reasonable people who are quite shocked when I start talking about global cooling. The powers that be, the deep state in America, the global elites and every major media outlet in the world have done a good job of convinced hundreds of millions of people about manmade global warming and the evil nature of CO2, but in reality carbon dioxide is one of the most necessary gases for life and health.

    I have been telling people to wake up and start paying attention to the coming cold period and to start thinking and making plans for dealing with what has already started. I have been doing that for ten years all while the press screams the ice is melting the ice is melting when it is not. Global warming believers are sleep walking but some of us must wake up and pay attention to what is going on.

    Minnesota Governor had to open his eyes and issue an Emergency Executive Order due to late spring where farmers “facing a delayed and shortened spring planting season.

    June 1, 2018 is the first day of a summer month and its freezing in Moscow. It was the first time ever to drop below zero on June 1. Even in the center of the capital, the temperature dropped to 6.5ºC as opposed to the previous record of 6.6ºC, which was the coldest night since 1948, and near Moscow State University the temperature dropped to 5.5ºC. The coldest temperature in the last 80 years was at the TCAA station, 4.5ºC yet the coldest place was in the suburbs, where the mercury dropped to a record -1.7ºC.

    In Canada it was much the same thing. Some people waking up in parts of Newfoundland got a wintry jolt when they looked out their window and saw white. Areas around Gander and St. John’s got a light dusting of snow as temperatures dipped to about -1 C, with a wind chill of about -7 C. Some called it a cruel Spring joke. I call it the face of global cooling.

    https://www.iceagenow.info/wp-conten...ers-Corbyn.jpg

    “We are plunging now into a deep mini ice age,” says astrophysicist Piers Corbyn. “And there is no way out.” For the next 20 years it’s going to get colder and colder on average, says Corbyn. “Carbon dioxide levels do not have any impact – I repeat, any impact – on climate. The CO2 theory is wrong from the start. The fact is the sun rules the sea temperature, and the sea temperature rules the climate. The basic message is that the sun is controlling the climate, primarily via the sea.”

    NASA data show that global temperatures dropped sharply over the past two years. Does that make NASA a global warming denier? Aaron Brown looked at the official NASA global temperature data and noticed something surprising. From February 2016 to February 2018, "global average temperatures dropped by 0.56 degrees Celsius." That, he notes, is the biggest two-year drop in the past century. "The 2016-2018 Big Chill," he writes, "was composed of two Little Chills, the biggest five months drop ever (February to June 2016) and the fourth biggest (February to June 2017). A similar event from February to June 2018 would bring global average temperatures below the 1980s average."

    The sharp dip in temperatures at the end of May does point to one of the coldest New Zealand winters in years, according to a MetService meteorologist. Meanwhile in Canada, this past winter handed Ontario beekeepers ‘unsustainable losses.’ Bad news not only for beekeepers, but for vegetable and fruit growers who depend on bees for pollination. A survey of almost 900 Ontario beekeepers indicated that 70 per cent suffered unsustainable losses. More than 40 per cent said the recent long, cold winter that extended into spring was the main reason for the heavy losses of colonies. We also see that in Quebec maple syrup production has plummeted after unusually cold spring.

    In Ireland they seem to be about 3 weeks behind in the season. “My neighbour has been unable to plough as it has been too wet and the first cut of silage which should have happened by now has not because there has not been enough growth in the grass. It is looking doubtful if there will be a second cut this year, if there is a first cut, which means Ireland next winter may have an even worse fodder crisis than over this last winter. “We have only hit 20 deg C (68 F) twice this year and here we are at the end of May with some trees only just now beginning to leaf up.

    A hailstorm of “unprecedented violence” caused widespread destruction in the Bordeaux and Cognac areas of western France on Sunday the 27th of May. The storm struck the Gironde area where many of France’s most well-known red wines originate, as well as further north in the Charente and Charente-Maritime regions. “It’s a shock, it was a hailstorm of unprecedented violence for 10 minutes,” the head of a winegrower’s association in the Cotes-de-Bourg area, Didier Gontier, told Franceinfo radio on Sunday. Some winemakers lost 100 percent of their harvest.

    The End of Science, the End of Truth, the End of Democrats
    This all sound like the warmest period in recent history? To global warming fanatics it does. This is a political story, so its understandable, however we are talking about weather and climate not politics. Politicians and even Popes have gone over the deep end in fantasy. Based on a creed that ignores the sun’s influence in climate the likes of Al Gore, Obama and Hilary Clinton pulled a fast one on the public and got away with it. However, now they are caught in a trap from which there is escape. Bernie will never become president in 2020 because he is a Democrat and Trump probably will be a shoe in for he has been one of the only politicians in the world to stand up (at least half up) to the manmade global warming story.

    Democrats don’t know it yet, but they are the doomed party full of global warming zealots, which is pathetic because anyone who is paying attention sees that temperatures are crashing, and ice is massing, as crops are failing. This is all happening in real time but has been obvious to most keen observers; to anyone who understands how fundamental solar activity is to the climate of our world. The Democrats of today shame their very name and the foundations of what democracy was supposed to be about, which at heart always meant listening even to the people we disagree with.

    “The only legitimate exercise of power in this country, according to Democrats, is its own. Whenever Republicans exercise power, it’s inherently illegitimate. The Democrats lost Congress. They lost the White House. So, what did they do? They began trying to run the country through Federal judges and bureaucrats. Every time that a Federal judge issues an order saying that the President of the United States can’t scratch his own back without his say so, that’s the civil war,” wrote Jack Minzey.

    The Democrats will be crushed by Mother Nature. This will probably be the only joy that comes out of global cooling. Humanity will be better off without Democrats, safer for sure though that said, Republicans are hardly saints or even close to be a benefit to the peoples of earth.

    Dust storms claim 13 lives across Uttar Pradesh, India

    At least 13 people were killed due to dust storms across Uttar Pradesh yesterday.

    The districts of Gonda, Faizabad and Sitapur were the worst affected. "13 persons were killed in dust storm in the past 24 hours. While six died in Sitapur, three died in Gonda, two died in Kaushambi and one person each was killed in Faizabad and Hardoi," an official spokesman said in Lucknow.

    28 others also sustained injuries at various locations due to the high-velocity winds.

    Taking note of this, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath had ordered district magistrates concerned to ensure proper treatment to the injured.

    He also directed that compensation be paid to the kin of those killed and said no laxity will be tolerated.

    Expressing grief over the deaths, he said the state government will extend all possible help to those hit by dust storms and related incidents, according to the spokesman.

    Meteorological center of Lucknow had issued a warning of thunderstorm and hailstorm in several places of eastern Uttar Pradesh on Wednesday evening.

    Over 100 people were also killed last month as dust storms left deadly trail of destruction in various parts of UP and Rajasthan.

    Sheets of rain: Austrian photographer creates stunning time-lapse of cloud dumping 'tsunami' over lake

    RT
    Sun, 17 Jun 2018 16:03 UTC


    © Peter Maier / YouTube

    Mother Nature's beautiful and mysterious ways have been caught on camera by a professional photographer who has captured time-lapse footage of a powerful rainstorm over a lake in Austria.

    The video, titled 'Tsunami from Heaven' shows blue skies turning grey as rain clouds swoop in over Lake Millstatt in Carinthia, Austria. It doesn't take long to see why photographer Peter Maier gave the video its title, as the downpour of the rainstorm does indeed look like a tsunami coming from the heavens.

    The captivating footage was so impressive that some apparently thought it was fake. Maier quickly put an end to that speculation, writing on Facebook: "Here are a few original recordings with original sound clips, for all those who still believe that it is fake."

    The video has so far been viewed by more than 700,000 people on YouTube.

    SOTT Comment: Epic flooding around the world is on the rise and according to one study atmospheric rivers are expected to double in size:
    "However, because the findings project that the atmospheric rivers will be, on average, about 25 percent wider and longer, the global frequency of atmospheric river conditions - like heavy rain and strong winds - will actually increase by about 50 percent." Atmospheric rivers are long, narrow jets of air that carry huge amounts of water vapor from the tropics to Earth's continents and polar regions.

    [...]

    These "rivers in the sky" typically range from 250 to 375 miles (400 to 600 kilometers) wide and carry as much water - in the form of water vapor - as about 25 Mississippi Rivers. When an atmospheric river makes landfall, particularly against mountainous terrain (such as the Sierra Nevada and the Andes), it releases much of that water vapor in the form of rain or snow.

    BTW: much appreciation for all your informative posts and threads, Hervé.

    Not sure what's happened but most of those links go to the Nova Scotia snow story, with the intended links buried at the bottom. But anyway, I couldn't see any clear context to the cold weather reports. How much is just unusual, how much unprecedented?

    However, one quote from the Nova Scotia story does make it clear:
    Quote While it may seem outrageous to some, snow in the highlands can happen, even in late June, according to Richard Jackson, a resident of Ingonish for most of his life.

    Well it's hot enough to boil a monkey's bum in most of the UK and has been for a fortnight at least, with over 30C somewhere most days. (The record is 38C/101F in 2003, but most years have a few days of 30+C somewhere.)

    This is by no means unprecedented so let's not get excited and start blaming HAARP, chemtrails or even global warming - it is summer after all...

    Best summer in a long time.
    When I was learning to sail a dinghy it was a summer just like this.
    I was about twelve years old at the time.
    There were similar summers then.
    Its all cyclic as far as I can tell.

    I own a welding shop so I can tell you about heat. . Here in northern Michigan this weekend heat index's were 105, my dogs didn't even want to stay out long so I knew . we got a reprieve today , fast storm came in last night with lightening. Really weird though, you would see a huge lightening flash above and it would take 6-8 seconds before the sound would hit us below. Must have been really high up in elevation. Were back into the 90's starting tomorrow, and for the rest of the week. This summer reminds me of when I was a kid, lots of hot days, In regards to snow, some 45 years ago I remember being in Yellowstone park during June and we got 6 inches of snow back then so mother earth is just taking care of herself it seems.

    If you have never heard this 3 minute narrative from Charlton Heston about the earth, please take a listen. I live in the town where Charleton Heston grew up as a kid and know several who had interaction with this great American . Some great stories and funny ones too!

    I own a welding shop so I can tell you about heat. . Here in northern Michigan this weekend heat index's were 105, my dogs didn't even want to stay out long so I knew . we got a reprieve today , fast storm came in last night with lightening. Really weird though, you would see a huge lightening flash above and it would take 6-8 seconds before the sound would hit us below. Must have been really high up in elevation. Were back into the 90's starting tomorrow, and for the rest of the week. This summer reminds me of when I was a kid, lots of hot days, In regards to snow, some 45 years ago I remember being in Yellowstone park during June and we got 6 inches of snow back then so mother earth is just taking care of herself it seems.

    If you have never heard this 3 minute narrative from Charlton Heston about the earth, please take a listen. I live in the town where Charleton Heston grew up as a kid and know several who had interaction with this great American . Some great stories and funny ones too! But here's a good story from him - Charlton Heston on Global Climate Change https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ozO4YB98mCY
    We are in Michigan too. Last night's storm was something special! I was on the deck roasting in the heat before the storm and thinking about what it really meant to be one with the Earth. Then inside later, I was listening to the rain falling on the roof, and it was a beautiful sound! When there was a lull in the raindrops and the sun was setting, my sons and I noticed that the diffuse light outside was orange and very unusual. We all went outside to investigate the special type of light. What a gorgeous evening!
    There's no time like the present.

    I bloody hate this and all heatwaves. It's fine abroad on holiday - the hotel has air-conditioning. UK homes have A/C like a house in India has central heating. The ceiling spaces are stuffed with heavy insulation; each one is made to trap heat. Which in summer is...lovely. Even with the windows open all day the bedroom scarcely gets below 30C by bedtime. Arghhh!

    Roll on autumn.

    Yet, I have heard locals in Sweden in mountain country talk about sudden snow falls in the middle of summer ... has been a random occurrence in history and in recent times.

    UK still in the grips of a tremendous heatwave, now in its fifth week. Temperatures hitting the 90s F for some parts today, and projected all week.

    Except for a 20 minute rain shower a week ago, which scarcely dampened the ground, it has not rained (here) since May. For England, who prides herself on grey skies and frequent heavy rain, that is very, very unusual. And a little scary.


    Greenwich Park, London

    The frazzled countryside looks more like Nevada than England at the moment, and from weather reports there are no signs of a change 'any time soon.'

    We don't normally get hot weather for any length of time. This is the hottest, driest spell here since 1976 (the hottest, driest summer on record, and this year is set to overtake it).

    Low pressure systems sweeping off the Atlantic usually keeps the country cool and changeable. This summer is different. What few systems there have been run out of steam before making landfall. High pressure sits over nearly all of Europe at present, and doesn't seem to be moving.

    How about everyone else? Would be interesting to know what summer is like where you are (at least in the northern hemisphere).
