Brutal 2020/21 Northern Hemisphere Winter One for the Record Books

The northern hemisphere winter of 2020/21 was one for the record books and is dragging on into late April. Image credit (for illustration only) NASA

Reporting even more global cooling as measured by satellites and new harsh cold events, particularly in Western Europe that have severely harmed early crops.

Harsh cold events have also struck China, Russia, the Mediterranean, the Middle East, North America and Australia.

If you still think global warming is a problem, look at the sheer number of non-global warming events that have occurred in just the last few month. (Originally published by NoTricksZone.com on April 21, 2021.)

We published in 2002 that there was no catastrophic human-made global warming /climate change crisis, and green energy schemes were not green and produced little useful (dispatchable) energy.

Global warming is not a threat, but global cooling is dangerous. In 2002 we predicted that global cooling would start circa 2020, based on low solar activity, and that prediction is strongly supported by the evidence.

Our 2002 predictions are among the most accurate on the planet: If [as we believe] solar activity is the main driver of surface temperature rather than CO2, we should begin the next cooling period by 2020 to 2030.” 

Updated global cooling prediction in 2013: “I suggest global cooling starts by 2020 or sooner. Bundle up.”

In this winter of 2020-2021, new record cold temperatures have been experienced all over the world, in January 2021 in Asia and in February 2021 in North America, Europe, the Mediterranean countries and the Middle East. I correctly predicted this cold winter in August 2020:

COLD WINTER APPEARS AS PREDICTED

Check out NIno34 temperatures, again down to Minus 0.6C – winter will be cold.

Nino34 SST anom’s hit minimums of minus1.4C-1.3C in Oct2020 and Nov2020 – so global coldest temperatures (+4 months) should be Feb2021 and Mar2021.

And that’s precisely what has happened: Global Lower Tropospheric Temperatures have declined 0.6C in 13 months, from an anomaly of +0.59C in February 2021 to only -0.01C in March 2021.

During the past two months, Earth has cooled, rapidly. The Version 6.0 Global Average Lower Tropospheric Temperature (LT) Anomaly for January, 2021 has come out at just +0.12 deg. C above the baseline, down 0.03 deg. C from the December, 2020 value of +0.15 deg. C.

CONCLUSION:

Dangerous global cooling will continue, it will be sporadic, moving from continent to continent with the seasons and the polar vortex, and could last for decades.

There will be no catastrophic human-made warming and no significant increase in chaotic weather due to increasing atmospheric CO2 concentrations.

Brutal 2020/21 Northern Hemisphere Winter One For Record Books…And Continues Into Late April!

  1. It was a cold one. It might take NOAA two or three years to change it to the warmest evah.

  2. this coming week east Aus is supposed to cop a severely cold upwelling from the antarctic
    meanwhile weve had a few unusually mild days n night after the bitter early cold in march,
    “indian summer” in autumn;-)

  3. This is just the beginning folks. Welcome to the 440 year GSM. It should be every bit as cold as the Maunder Minimium. You can go ice skating on the Dutch canals again.
    I’m glad I am no longer living in Alaska.

  4. Since 2002, RWF’s Ice Age Now has warned that there is no anthropogenic global warming /climate crisis (carbon CO2 emissions, “fossil-fuel,” or UHI); that crony-socialist “green energy” schemes are neither environmentally benign nor “renewable”; that landscape-blighting solar-panel and wind-farms are not cheaper, more reliable, safer or even more “sustainable” than nuclear-power facilities on-line from the mid-1950s. Though our post-Little Ice Age “amplitude compression” rebound thesis dates from pre-Internet days, Silent Generation members keep such insights to themselves.

    Contrary to half-a-century of Luddite sociopaths’ alarmism, January 2021 saw record Chinese, East Asian, Russian cold while Europe, Mediterranean regions, and North America suffered polar blasts throughout late February. Cf: Svensmark-Zharkova relating solar magnetic fields (SMFs) to total solar irradiance (TSI) plus Robert Holmes’ 2017 Mean Molar Mass version of the Ideal Gas Law, where any planet’s global atmospheric surface temperature GAST = PM / Rp (qv).

    Having long explicated an overarching astro-geophysical scenario at length-and-detail, our iterated variations on that theme become quite dull. Suffice it that, prior to Eocene orogenies due to plate-tectonic shifts, Planet Earth experienced no global Ice Ages from Ediacaran times 635+ million YBP; that over 3.6 million years from the late Pliocene, cyclical 102-kiloyear continental glaciations interspersed with median 12,550-year interstadial remissions have become the rule, a pattern due to persist another 16 – 24 million years; and finally, that the latest Holocene Interglacial Epoch ended AD 1350 with a 500-year Little Ice Age (LIA) through 1850/1890.

    Because subsequent 50-40-30-20 year temperature swings will end in 2030, coincident with an eight-sunspot cycle (88-year) Super-Grand Solar Minimum through c. 2108, 21st Century seasons will likely resemble those of the 70-year Maunder Minimum or even Younger Dryas “cold shocks”, in this case presaging frigid settings over a full evolutionary era. To those either willfully pork-ignorant of Earth’s astro-geophysical milieus or complicit in junk-science’s 40+ year AGW scam, we say: Just don’t try donning skirts and bonnets to climb aboard lifeboats.

  5. Good stuff.
    I am afraid though that nobody by us “deniars” will ever know about it.

  6. I went a short drive to the South Western Highlands of Scotland a few days ago. The temp was down to 4oC and it was snowing and leaving dusting on the peaks of the higher hills.

    This is in a place that is directly in the firing line of the Gulf Stream and even in Winter are usually snowless, save for a few falls here and there. It’s more likely to be raining, yet it’s basically the Start of May and still snowing!

  7. Ice Ages are caused mostly by the impacts of large comet fragments. Earth appears to be facing the passage of the first cluster of the B Comet Swarm in the last quarter of 2022.
    THE B COMET SWARM CLUSTER CL-1a: 2018 – 2020

    This web page shows cosmic events relating to a possible swarm of incoming comet fragments, some of which have already impacted Earth. Future impact events may well occur that could cause blast, tsunamis’, and a major weather change resulting in a new ‘Younger Dryas like’ Ice Age. Impacts in the Atlantic ocean, Caribbean and Mediterranean sea are anticipated. Major Threat times are Sep. – Nov. of 2021, 2022 & 2023. 2022 and 2023(24?) contains dual peak threat times (Cl-1ai & Cl- 1aii ).

    VULCAN REVEALED
    A Dangerous New Jovian Sized Body In Our Solar System
    Madam Blavatsky postulated this solar body’s existence around 1877 and named it ‘Vulcan’. Astronomer Forbes found three of this body’s orbital parameters in 1880. This work details its mass and orbital parameters (found in 2002-2004) and they matched Forbes’ values within measurement error. Vulcan casts objects from Kuiper Belt into 3:2 resonate Sun grazing orbits (~3313 year) where they break up forming meteor or comet swarms. Fragments from these swarms sometimes hit Earth causing significant weather changes. Paleo-climatological data from more than thirty related impacts have been identified from tree ring and ice core data spanning the past 15,000 years. This data, added to others, lead to 4 different measurements independently verifying Vulcan’s orbital period (of ~4969 years).

    The ancients were aware of this Jovian like body. Moreover, it appears that some well informed members of the astronomical community were aware of this ancient knowledge. This, combined it with intelligence gained from extra- terrestrial aliens contacts, suggested that an ultra-tiny brown dwarf star existed in our outer solar system. The Pioneer, Voyager, IRAS satellite and possibly even the Hubble space telescope were constructed to locate and observe this body.

  8. Impressive article. That proves again, without a doubt, that the new ice age cycle and climatic cooling episode is already here.

  9. The first of many over the two cycles of the Grand Solar Minimum SC24 and SC25 just as Dalton’s two cycles SC5 and SC6 generated harsh cold, drought, and Asian famine. Dalton also dropped sea level by nearly a Meter and average temperatures by nearly 1C.
    That drop in sea level by a combination of thermal contraction and Ice Cap Mass build up, never mind sea ice that is already floating and doesn’t change sea level.
    This GSM is the first to be observed by modern hard science; however any papers produced by AGW Ologists degree holders will not be worth the paper they are written on, unless they recant AGW and start to discuss the climate effects of the rise and fall of UV over the solar cycle and its impact on the shape of the Jetstream wave form.
    E.g. during the Solar Max and High UV levels – the wave form is lateral and retains heat within the tropical regions.
    During the 6 year Solar Minimum transition period between cycle maxes the wave form is meridional and exports heat and water vapour in vast quantities to the polar regions.

  10. Dave Tolleris WxRisk.com thinks everyone that disagrees with human climate change has failed high school Dave go sit your behide back down as you failed treating people with respect.

  11. Luddite sociopaths’ alarmism,? Who’s a Luddite, Harry Wexler? Joe Fletcher?
    Doomsday plan,,, cryowar!
    Not to be confused with Wexner tho,,, 😉

  12. Here in Ireland the past winter has been fairly benign with no severe frosts or heavy snows. Although April was a little colder than normal because of clear nights the main problem has been lower than normal rainfall. However, the rain has returned in early May with more normal temperatures forecast by this weekend.

  13. Finland actually means “wine land”, as it was named by the Vikings in the warm Middle Ages, when wine was cultivated in this Arctic country. North Canada too was labeled: “Vinland”, wine land. Good proof that even now those areas are much colder than they used to be in those days. Yes, the Little Ice Age ended around 1850, but even today it is colder than during the climate optimum medieval times and it will probably be even colder in de future!

  14. Added to that, snow ❄️ fell in the Etihad stadium in London in May 5.

    Even more extraordinary than the snow was that in the same stadium, Manchester City, perennial under-performers in Europe’s Champions League, won a semifinal for the first time ever, against Paris Saint-Germain. Night of wonders.

  15. So Now The Question Is What Will Winter 21/22 Be Like For The UK? Wondering This Will Watching The Volcano In Iceland Sending Jet Of Lava Shooting To The Sky….
