    Even more predictable than the actual weather is Mother Nature once again having fun with climate alarmists. As winter approaches, we see true climate change, also known as changing seasons. The United Nations conference on climate change is set to begin in just a week, and Mother Nature, as a reality check, threw a giant snowball at the American Midwest. It’s not even Thanksgiving, and winter is officially a month away, but the Midwest was clobbered with cold temperatures and snow – not just a late fall cold snap, but a major winter storm. Single-digit temperatures. Eleven inches of snow...

    A deep freeze set in across the Midwest on Sunday with low temperatures forecast in the single digits and a few below zero, turning the season's first major snow into ice that made some roads treacherous to travel. After snow on Friday and Saturday across much of the region, temperatures plunged behind the front. The National Weather Service forecast 20 degrees or lower across six states from North Dakota to Illinois. Fargo, North Dakota, could dip to 11 degrees by early Sunday. Madison, Wisconsin, could see 7 degrees and Des Moines 12. Parts of Iowa, northwest Illinois and southern Wisconsin...

    Chicago gets its largest November snowfall in 120 years. The season's first snowfall dropped as much as 17 inches across Chicago's northern suburbs, and the total of 11.2 inches at O'Hare International Airport made it the largest November snowfall in 120 years. ... According to the weather service, this was the second-largest November snowstorm, behind only a 12-inch snowfall Nov. 25-26, 1895. This month is catapulted to the fourth snowiest November on record with more than a week remaining. The three snowiest Novembers were: 1940 with 14.8 inches, 1895 with 14.5 inches and 1951 with 14.3 inches.

    Decades before Sen. Bernie Sanders warned that global warming was driving terrorism, U.S. intelligence officials warned that global cooling would cause massive crop failures, destabilize government and drive violent conflict. A Central Intelligence Agency report from 1974 warned Earth's "climate is returning to that of the neo-boreal era, an era of drought, famine, and political unrest in the western world." The report cited famines in the Soviet Union, drought in Latin America and flooding in the U.S. as examples of how global cooling was wreaking havoc on countries.

    New studies flip climate-change notions upside down The sun will go into "hibernation" mode around 2030, and it has already started to get sleepy. At the Royal Astronomical Society's annual meeting in July, Professor Valentina Zharkova of Northumbria University in the UK confirmed it - the sun will begin its Maunder Minimum (Grand Solar Minimum) in 15 years. Other scientists had suggested years ago that this change was imminent, but Zharkova's model is said to have near-perfect accuracy. So what is a "solar minimum"? Our sun doesn't maintain a constant intensity. Instead, it cycles in spans of approximately 11 years....

A team of European researchers have unveiled a scientific model showing that the Earth is likely to experience a “mini ice age” from 2030 to 2040 as a result of decreased solar activity. Their findings will infuriate environmental campaigners who argue by 2030 we could be facing increased sea levels and flooding due to glacial melt at the poles.

Pope Francis and President Obama continue to preach the perils of global warming, not concerning themselves with any pause or faulty climate models.  One of the world's...

According to data compiled by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), sea surface water temperatures over much of the Atlantic were warmer than average spanning January to August 2015. Waters from the northwestern Caribbean to the central part of the ocean were not only very warm but were record warm. However, very chilly to record cold water has developed near Greenland, the NOAA data revealed. The...

This also means that the expected, much-awaited solar-driven cooling could be put off for at least year, with the consequence that the...

According to a study by the Institute of Catalysis and Environment in Lyon (IRCELYON, CNRS / University Lyon 1) and the Leibniz Institute for Tropospheric Research (TROPOS), the oceans are producing unexpectedly large quantities of isoprene – a volatile organic compound (VOC) – which is known to have a cooling effect on climate.

    So sad. A Canadian arctic research expedition to study "climate change" (always meaning global warming) has been derailed. Why? Heavy ice. However,readers ofthe CBC News account of the story are left in the dark as to the exact nature of the expedition that is not to be this year. Fortunately, a quick search has turned up a Daily Kos Kossack who is a member of that attempted expedition who was happily chirping out what it is all about last Thursday.Here is the CBC News report that tells what happened to the Canadian Coast guard cutter without telling us what the...
  • Rare snow in Australia as Antarctic chill sweeps eastern states

    Temperatures have plummeted to more than 10 degrees below average in places, while Sydney has had its coldest July weather in 44 years now has fallen in parts of Australia where such falls are so rare the weather bureau does not have the tools to measure it as temperatures plunged to more than 10 degrees below average. Antarctic air pushed up through central New South Wales and on to Queensland known as the Sunshine State over the past week bringing on a winter cold front not seen in some parts since the mid-1980s. In Queensland, snow fell in...

    My Outdoor Thermometer | 15 July 2015 | Steely
    I just thought this was worth noting. I live in Upstate New York, where in years past it would often be in the upper nineties at this point in the annual weather cycle. The leaves are beginning to turn on some of the trees in my neighborhood. We've had a succession of below-normal days. "Accuweather" (BTW) says it's 57 where I live. Last year, there was one evening on which Accuweather said it was eighteen degrees hotter where I live than what my outdoor thermometer said. I haven't heard President Obama saying much about global warming this summer, other than...

    Solar scientists predict that the Earth will enter a "mini ice age" around 2030 due to decreased activity by the sun, which will bring with it frigid cold winters. The last time the Earth experienced a similar situation occurred between 1645 and 1715.

    Maunder Minimum Petri Dish of Political Change Posted on July 12, 2015 by Martin Armstrong Well the Global Warming pretend scientists are desperately trying to keep their funding. Now these con-artists are trying to claim that that it is just the surface water of the oceans that is cooling and the below the water is warming. When they stop driving cars and walk to work or ride a bicycle, then perhaps they are speaking at least what they believe rather than crying the planet is warming and we need to hand them billions of dollars to figure out some...

    No, not really. But the conflicting headlines I’m seeing this week might as well say that. Apparently we’re all still doomed, but our first item in recent climate news deals with a different phenomenon than the usual screeds which, rather than melting the ice caps and drowning all of the coastal cities, is going to bring on a new mini-ice starting in about fifteen years. Rather than carbon emissions or fracking, the culprit this time is the sun. (From the Daily Mail) The Earth could be headed for a ‘mini ice age’ researchers have warned.A new study claims to...
  • Is a mini ICE AGE on the way? Scientists warn the sun will 'go to sleep' in 2030

    The Earth could be headed for a 'mini ice age' researchers have warned. A new study claims to have cracked predicting solar cycles - and says that between 2020 and 2030 solar cycles will cancel each other out. This, they say, will lead to a phenomenon known as the 'Maunder minimum' - which has previously been known as a mini ice age when it hit between 1646 and 1715, even causing London's River Thames to freeze over. The new model of the Sun's solar cycle is producing unprecedentedly accurate predictions of irregularities within the Sun's 11-year heartbeat. It draws on...
