Worldwide Record Cold Challenges Climate Rhetoric and Risks Lives by Complacency   - CO2 Coalition

By Vijay Jayaraj 

I live in Bengaluru in southern India. This month, the city recorded the coldest temperature in 10 years for the month of November. So has been the case in my country’s capital New Delhi where extreme winters have become a norm in recent years.  

A small percentage of India’s 1.3 billion population has access to electrical heaters. However, a majority must burn a variety of fuels for fire to stay warm, making many people susceptible to surprise cold events. Why are cold events considered a surprise and not a normal part of weather? Is it because the public mind has been made complacent about cold by the fearmongering of global warmists?

 

The reality is cold events have become common, not just in India, but across the globe. Since 2017, there have been regular incidences of below-average temperatures in both winter and summer. What can be inferred from these cold spells and what do they suggest about the apocalyptic rhetoric of the climate cult?

Cold Spells and Polar Ice Sheets

 

The November-18 snow event at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport, is the earliest snowfall in recorded history since 1898. Just an isolated event due to a regional storm? Well, think again. 

The past few months witnessed unusual cold spells in the U.S. and Canada.

Buffalo registered one of its highest snowfalls for November

Vancouver saw unusual early winter snowfall. 

On November 20 and 21, hundreds of daily all-time low temperature records were registered across the U.S. as Arctic air swept through the North American continent.

There have been extreme cold events in other parts of the world too.  

In August, China’s northwestern province of Xinjiang experienced surprise summer snowfall.

South America, Europe, Asia and Australia registered record low temperatures in recent months. 

In Greenland – often a subject in the climate-change debate – the surface mass balance (SMB) of ice sheet this year is at one of its highest levels since 1981

It is set to increase further into the winter season.

Greenland has been registering a consistent growth in ice sheet SMB since 2016. 

 

As Electoverse writer Cap Allon, notes, “Since 2016, Northern Hemisphere (NH) snow mass seasons have been holding well above the 1982-2012 average, and the 2022-2022 season is proving no different — as of the latest datapoint (Nov 19), the ‘Total snow mass for the NH’ chart, which comes courtesy of the Finnish Meteorological Institute (FMI), continues above both the multi-decadal average and the standard deviation.”

The “Dangerous Warming” Rhetoric 

So, do these record snowfall events, and record low temperature events, mean there is no increase in global average temperatures? Certainly not!

There has been a warming trend since the Little Ice Age low-point in about 1700, but the claim is, never has there been a general warming – and there is none now. 

The claim, global warming has made our summers hotter and winters milder is certainly wrong.

As evidenced in the last five years, both extreme cold and extreme warmth have been common. 

Until the media took over the climate debate, these thermal ups and downs were known as weather variations. However, in the age of climate scare-mongering, every extreme weather event is a catastrophe.

Even unusual snowfall and cold are considered sour fruits of man-made emissions of carbon dioxide.  

This pseudoscience and outright distortions/lies of self-serving, attention-craving media and political elites are harmful.

The most vulnerable in our world are more exposed to the risks of cold, because of an exaggerated concern about warming. 

Cold Kills, Not Heat

More than 500 million Indians still use open fire to warm themselves while cold kills more people than heat.

In some parts of India, winter temperatures can reach as low as -20 Celsius/-4 Fahrenheit.

Even in a developed nation such as Germany, climate complacency has led to unpreparedness for winter energy needs.

Government officials are asking citizens to heat just one room in their homes!

The warming of the past three centuries has been extremely beneficial to mankind, helping us achieve unprecedented progress in human health, living standards, food production and technological achievement as we utilize the earth’s resources ever more efficiently.

Maine Center For Public Interest Reporting – Three Part Series: A CRITICAL LOOK AT MAINE’S WIND ACT

******** IF LINKS BELOW DON'T WORK, GOOGLE THEM*********

(excerpts) From Part 1 – On Maine’s Wind Law “Once the committee passed the wind energy bill on to the full House and Senate, lawmakers there didn’t even debate it. They passed it unanimously and with no discussion. House Majority Leader Hannah Pingree, a Democrat from North Haven, says legislators probably didn’t know how many turbines would be constructed in Maine if the law’s goals were met." . – Maine Center for Public Interest Reporting, August 2010 https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/wind-power-bandwagon-hits-bumps-in-the-road-3/From Part 2 – On Wind and Oil Yet using wind energy doesn’t lower dependence on imported foreign oil. That’s because the majority of imported oil in Maine is used for heating and transportation. And switching our dependence from foreign oil to Maine-produced electricity isn’t likely to happen very soon, says Bartlett. “Right now, people can’t switch to electric cars and heating – if they did, we’d be in trouble.” So was one of the fundamental premises of the task force false, or at least misleading?" https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/wind-swept-task-force-set-the-rules/From Part 3 – On Wind-Required New Transmission Lines Finally, the building of enormous, high-voltage transmission lines that the regional electricity system operator says are required to move substantial amounts of wind power to markets south of Maine was never even discussed by the task force – an omission that Mills said will come to haunt the state.“If you try to put 2,500 or 3,000 megawatts in northern or eastern Maine – oh, my god, try to build the transmission!” said Mills. “It’s not just the towers, it’s the lines – that’s when I begin to think that the goal is a little farfetched.” https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/flaws-in-bill-like-skating-with-dull-skates/

Sign up today and lend your voice and presence to the steadily rising tide that will soon sweep the scourge of useless and wretched turbines from our beloved Maine countryside. For many of us, our little pieces of paradise have been hard won. Did the carpetbaggers think they could simply steal them from us?

We have the facts on our side. We have the truth on our side. All we need now is YOU.
