  1. Hello Robert,

    I read your site virtually ever day – a great site.

    But – sorry! – the “upgrade” it’s just received means I have to scroll down considerably to see if it’s been updated, or a new page displayed. Not very user-friendly…

    Best wishes, Ant in the UK, England even. Just above where the glaciers ended last time, too old to worry about next time!

    1. I upgraded it in order to make it mobile friendly. It looks almost the same to me from this end as it did before. What is it on your end that you do not like? Maybe I can “fix” it.

  2. Hello Robert,

    Before, I saw the header titles across the top, assorted adverts or whatever down each side and the content summaries started immediately under the titles.

    Now, I see a much simplified banner across the top, a list of useful things down the left side which takes up a full screen on this admittedly elderly desktop and then the content summaries, albeit better spaced out than before but that’s not a complaint, compactness is good!

    I scrolled right down this time, found all the previous side-content in a row down the centre of the sctreen. So I suspect that something isn’t laying itself out correctly but I don’t know. Ok before, not now, and most other websites are ok. All Java etc is enabled.

    Regards Ant

  3. Question: I was flying over the Tip of Greenland and St John’s Island. There appeared to be large ice bergs and floating ice. It covered a huge area south of each location. What was I looking at from 35,000 feet


  4. Did someone hack the website! The content on the displayed page now completely off center and flush to the left.

    1. Google announced that any website that was not mobile friendly as of April 23 would go to the bottom of their search engine, so I updated the website to a new theme for that reason. It seems to be working for most people, but not all. One reader is getting an entirely black screen. I will ask my webmaster what can be done.

    1. Hi Ant, My webmaster suggests that you try clearing your cache. That seems to be helping anyone who isn’t able to view the website properly. Sorry for what you’re going through.

  5. SEVEN factories collapsed, football matches were halted, power cut and roads turned into rivers after Sydney was smashed by a freak hail and snow storm today.


    A booming cold system which formed over the southwest slopes and the Blue Mountains hit the western suburbs mid-afternoon before its destructive winds and hail turned streets into snow fields.

    More than 50cm of hail dumped on parts of western Sydney, with kids making snow men, sliding on cardboard boxes and throwing balls of ice.

  6. What is the background of the earthquakes in Canton, MS.? I do not ever reading about earthquakes in central Mississippi. Thanks.

  7. Dear Robert,
    Could I trouble you for your take on this Planet X/Nibiru star system arrival controversy? It would seem to offer much “cause & effect” insight into the uptick in worldwide geologic events and dove-tail into both J.L. Casey’s & your analysis.
    I speak of the YouTube accessible photography & Zecharia Sitchin’s book “12th Planet” {Which I’ve yet to acquire}. Thank-you for your work by the way.
    Best Regards

  8. First thought’s were WHAAATTTT???? Comes as no surprise, remember we are headed into Winter down here. Most interesting reading even so, someone somewhere has got this global warming seriously muddled up, or they are downright lying to us. Fraud – Legally, would be worth exploring, what about people who have spent money changing their circumstances because we have been told we are warming.

  9. Hello Robert

    There are fresh great news about dino Soft Tissue found in the bones.
    Here are two links to inspect more

    Darwinist-Marxist Source:
    Creation Source:

    It is time to recalculate these ages based on real observations and experimental results.
    And here is great vid about The Origin of Earth’s Radioactivity ( it is used to calculate age)

    Thanks Robert for great

  10. Irregular heartbeat of the Sun driven by double dynamo

    Looking ahead to the next solar cycles, the model predicts that the pair of waves become increasingly offset during Cycle 25, which peaks in 2022. During Cycle 26, which covers the decade from 2030-2040, the two waves will become exactly out of synch and this will cause a significant reduction in solar activity.

    “In cycle 26, the two waves exactly mirror each other – peaking at the same time but in opposite hemispheres of the Sun. Their interaction will be disruptive, or they will nearly cancel each other. We predict that this will lead to the properties of a ‘Maunder minimum’,” said Zharkova. “Effectively, when the waves are approximately in phase, they can show strong interaction, or resonance, and we have strong solar activity. When they are out of phase, we have solar minimums. When there is full phase separation, we have the conditions last seen during the Maunder minimum, 370 years ago.”

  11. Hello Robert,

    After having endured years of pro-agw/climate change propaganda from the msm,it was a surreal experience reading an article beginning with the following paragraph :

    “Fast Retailing Co. fell by the most in more than a year after the apparel retailer raised doubt about meeting sales targets for Uniqlo sales in Japan, saying unseasonably cool weather has damped demand for summer clothes.”

    I guess business news isnt too heavily vetted for facts discrediting agw.

    Can you imagine the hysterics by the media if this story had been about damped demand for winter clothes? There was so much hype about a ‘heat wave’ in Japan in May,along with the usual hottest year ever mantra,yet this article providing hard facts will be totally ignored.

    Thought you would find this interesting


  12. I haven’t seen much recent information on ICE AGE NOW about the concentration of atmospheric CO2.
    So I thought I’d let you know that while looking for greenhouse equipment today I came across a website (provided) about controlling CO2 for optimum growth of plants and it got me thinking. Basically plants grow best at 1000-1500ppm. Higher concentrations of CO2 like this are actually good for plant growth and of course world food production.

    Plants will consume CO2 in an unventilated greenhouse until a shortage of CO2 limits their growth. Many plants will not grow at all when the levels of atmospheric CO2 become less than 150ppm.

    As a geologist I am also familiar with the fact that CO2 in the atmosphere has never been constant. It was dramatically reduced from several thousand ppm to a few hundred during the colonization of the land by plants between 400 and 300 million years ago, during what we call the Devonian and Carboniferous periods. Plant growth was prolific and like in the modern unventilated greenhouse this contributed to the reduction in CO2. Then around 300 million years ago during the Late Carboniferous / Permian periods a severe ice age occurred lasting 20-30 million years. Was this ice age caused by low CO2 levels??

    Right now we are towards then end of a brief interglacial in the middle of the latest ice age that only began 2-4 million years ago, so there may be a long way to go yet before it really gets warmer again! The start of the current ice age also coincided with historically low levels of CO2. Was this once again cause and effect? With 1000 to 2000 ppm CO2 prior to the latest ice age, it was nice and warm everywhere and rainfall was plentiful. So why are we risking another advance of the ice and continuation of the current ice age when we could lift CO2 to higher levels, secure a warmer, wetter climate for all and encourage more plant growth.

    Ah but then alarmist will say – what about the acidification of the oceans and death of corals? The answer to that is look once again to the geological record. In this you will also discover that at the same time as CO2 levels were between 6000 and 7000 ppm some 500 plus million years ago in the Cambrian period, this was also a time of major coral reef production in many places around the world. Cambrian limestone is very common!

  13. Hi, I am new here. It looks like a great site. I did read the book Dark Winter recently, but not the one featured here.

    I wanted to ask a speculative practical question. I live in NJ with a small greenhouse and am able to start things early and get an abundant harvest early. I’ve been seeing many young folks get interested in gardening and am helping them out. John Casey’s estimate that we will lose 3 weeks at each end of the growing season does not bother me personally, although I realize that our entire tier of northern states and Canada will need to change seed varieties and food price hikes will affect us all.

    Is that what you are predicting here? Shorter seasons? Or are you expecting the sorts of scenarios that Laura Ingalls Wilder wrote about in Farmer Boy, where in upstate NY they had a freeze the fourth of July? Are you predicting major crop losses from actual freezes mid season for NJ ( zone 6b now), or just shorter seasons? If the former, should I be thinking about starting to stash up on row covers and protection that could keep a garden safe as low as 25-22 f or so? Or are you predicting far worse in NJ? Thanks for any thoughts.

  14. As the “hottest year ever” rolls on,Scotland braces for icy weather in July in a summer which has seen some of the heaviest rains on record.

    “Yes, it may be summer… But brace yourselves for an icy blast coming Scotland’s way”

    Perhaps NOAA should take some inspiration for its “hottest year ever” advisories from the title of the article as summers get even chillier in the years ahead.They would probably go something along the lines of :

    “Its still the hottest year ever,just try & avoid freezing to death from the icy summer weather we’re having.”

  15. Robert,
    I’ve been a student of the forests for many years and have a “sawmill.” Though not a professor with science credentials, I found the following on the Smithsonian…In other words, C02 is causing trees to grow faster…I know by experience, if you look at a tree’s growth rate, it is attributable on 2 things only! The amount of WATER (rain) and the nutrient in soil. You will enjoy this global warming/climate change article:

  16. CO2 is the most toxic poison,but heavy metals such as Arsenic & cadmium are no big deal,just a minor inconvenience.At least thats the way the EPA appears to think,judging by how much effort is being put into cleaning up the latest catastrophe theyre directly responsible for.The polluted water,tainted a sickly yellowish-orange due to the large concentration of pollutants,is only “as acidic as black coffee” according to the EPA.

    Doesnt exactly fill you with confidence knowing these guys would be solely responsible for carbon emission guidelines & ultimately deciding what type of fuels are used in the coming decades.

  17. ” If your winter has been brutally cold in Tokyo or Toledo in recent years, you can thank global warming in the Arctic, a new study suggests.”

    & thus,Ladies & Gents,the last desperate defense of the AGW Lobby begins.

    They did test this during the “polar vortex” of 2013-2014.But now its backed by ‘studies’ (& just in time for the climate change conference)

    So now when you are neck deep in snow & your city runs out of grit,you can blame AGW.

  18. Australia’s Climate Change skeptic Prime Minister Tony Abbott overthrown,replaced by Pro-Climate Change Ex-Goldman Sachs Banker.

    A direct quote from the new PM :

    “Climate change is a global problem. The planet is warming because of the growing level of greenhouse gas emissions from human activity. If this trend continues, truly catastrophic consequences are likely to ensue from rising sea levels, to reduced water availability, to more heat waves and fires.” — Malcolm Turnbull

    The writing was already on the wall for Abbott.He had to go before the Climate conference.

    “A year after scrapping laws putting a price on carbon, Australia’s ruling conservative coalition is facing rising heat over its stance on greenhouse-gas emissions ahead of global climate talks scheduled for later this year.”WSJ

  19. Hi Robert,

    Can you take a look at the maps in this article:

    and give us your thoughts on whether the countries that are marked as “vulnerable” wouldn’t actually be prime living space in the event of an ice age?

    I just can’t shake the idea that TPTB are doing such a contrived song and dance about parts of the world that will be livable under so-called “warming”, when what they really want to do is remove the people from the “vulnerable” areas and take them over, themselves. Can’t you just see them trying to convince the billions of people who live the warmer parts of the world to give up their space for a pittance, only to see the elite take them over at the point of a bayonet?

    Won’t those so-called “vulnerable” (warm) parts of the globe actually still be livable without extraordinary infrastructure in the event of an ice age?

    1. I think you’re seeing clearly. During an ice age, I would expect the temperatures in those areas to remain pretty much the same as today.

  20. Earliest snowfall in over 40 years in Kaghan & Naran valleys in Northern Pakistan,thousands of tourists stranded.

  21. I just heard mention of this on Good Morning America here in Hollywood this morning. This news item is from last year but how on earth is this possible? Can you address this?

    “Computer models have predicted that climate change and increased carbon dioxide levels will speed up the jet stream, leading to more serious episodes by 2050.”

    Thank you.

  22. It seems Nations enjoy collecting money from Climate Change but like the Citizens do not want to pay that “Green Money” out. Will the Rich Nations become “Deniers”? How fitting under developed Nations in the Name of Climate Change. Apparently when the shoe is on the other foot it does not feel good.

  23. Here is the article I last mentioned:

    “Heartbeat of the Sun from Principal Component Analysis and
    prediction of solar activity on a millenium timescale” by V. V. Zharkova1,2,*, S. J. Shepherd3,*, E. Popova4,* & S. I. Zharkov5,*

    We derive two principal components (PCs) of temporal magnetic field variations over the solar
    cycles 21–24 from full disk magnetograms covering about 39% of data variance, with σ=0.67.
    These PCs are attributed to two main magnetic waves travelling from the opposite hemispheres
    with close frequencies and increasing phase shift. Using symbolic regeression analysis we also derive
    mathematical formulae for these waves and calculate their summary curve which we show is linked
    to solar activity index. Extrapolation of the PCs backward for 800 years reveals the two 350-year
    grand cycles superimposed on 22 year-cycles with the features showing a remarkable resemblance
    to sunspot activity reported in the past including the Maunder and Dalton minimum. The summary
    curve calculated for the next millennium predicts further three grand cycles with the closest grand
    minimum occurring in the forthcoming cycles 26–27 with the two magnetic field waves separating
    into the opposite hemispheres leading to strongly reduced solar activity. These grand cycle variations
    are probed by α−Ω dynamo model with meridional circulation. Dynamo waves are found generated
    with close frequencies whose interaction leads to beating effects responsible for the grand cycles
    (350–400 years) superimposed on a standard 22 year cycle. This approach opens a new era in
    investigation and confident prediction of solar activity on a millenium timescale.

  24. I am in Melbourne Australia. Just before Christmas, your site was put on blocked list. Under Australian laws, any small pressure group can apply and have a site blocked. You cannot get a list of blocked sites, nor can you appeal a blockage unless you can organise a mass protest at political level.

    1. I have been reading about the effects of Glyphosate on human organs. What if the massive amounts of Glyphosate that get used on the west coast end up in the seawater?

      Here is an article about how persistent it is in seawater:

      Since Glyphosate was originally patented as an antibiotic and chelator, and since it is the most widely used weed killer in the world, and since it persists in seawater, I think it would be a good idea to look for it in these animals’ bodies.

    Snow Wonder

    It would be snow wonder if former US Vice President, Al Gore, were to be quickly editing and re-writing his book ‘An Inconvenient Truth’? A book on fairy tales…er…sorry, I mean his views on Global and Celestial Forces that determine climate on our planet!

    Those who hanker after the truth should read my recently released book titled, “21st Century Electricity” (ISBN 978-1-78507-390-8) available online from sources such as Amazon. This is a book the government, power companies and the wind industry would prefer you did not read! Indeed, in the Preface to the book, the UK Botanist and well known Broadcaster David Bellamy OBE, says “Everything the Wind Energy Associations never wanted to see in print!”

    Perhaps some kind soul in a generous act could send a copy to Al Gore?

  28. When I tried to buy your Fire/Ice book and went to Add to Cart (Canada), the link went no where, same with the US button. The other country button works (but is more expensive)

    See your other book re evolution, had similar thoughts, a weak Heliosphere in conjunction with a weak Magnetosphere would welcome more ionizing radiation into the biosphere…. kind of a crap shoot to mutate dna in gametes but feasible, Would suggest pulses of evolution ensue from those episodes.

    Anyways, if you get your paypal buttons working would be pleased to buy your book.


  29. I’m a long term but previously silent reader in Sydney Australia. For most of 2016 your site has been unreachable for me, and I thought it must be down. Turns out it is being blocked by the Australian carrier Optusnet (my ISP.) I’m now using the Tor Browser to access your site.
    See my thread on an Australian electronics forum with traceroute and ping details:

    I don’t suppose you have set up a block on an IP address range from Optus? That’s the only other explanation. But it’s more likely Optus doing it, since they do have a government-sponsored site censorship system.

    On my site:

    1. No, I am not blocking Optus. The blocking must be coming from them. I’ve heard from a few other Australian readers who have also been blocked. Now I know why.

  30. Blizzard paralyzes Cheyenne, shatters snowfall record.
    Today’s storm has already shattered the previous snowfall and precipitation records for March 23. As of 11 a.m., 13.6 inches of snow totaling 1.15 inches of moisture had fallen. The previous records were 8.9 inches for snow in 1996 and .67 inches of moisture in 1909.

  31. Record-setting storm leaves thousands without power..
    Roger Martin, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Great Falls, said the 6.9 inches of snow recorded in Great Falls broke the previous record of 3.6 inches set in 1894.

    Dzud is a bad drought followed by a harsh cold winter.
    In Mongolia it hasn’t rained since last July and this winter temperatures dropped to as low as -50C for days on end. Snowfall covered up to 60% of the country and fell heavier than usual.

  34. Hi! Please, search for the current cold wave that is hitting South America and, especially, Brazil. So many records of low temperatures in our country! I like cold weather, but this cold wave is the most strong in last 16-20 years and is during 1 week. I hope you reply me.

  38. Cold spring means Brits face a longer wait for ripe blackberries.
    The Woodland Trust said the cold spring had delayed the ripening of the traditional British fruit, holding back the leafing and flowering of species .
    UK temperatures in March were 0.2C (0.4F) below average and in April they were almost one degree (0.9C or 1.6F) below the average for the month. Only at the end of spring did they rise above average, the Woodland Trust said.

  39. New Zealand South Island. Let it snow: Temperatures to plunge to record low.
    The bitter cold snap is set to smash a weather record that has stood for more than a “century” as an icy chill takes hold of the South Island.

    Temperatures are set to plunge to a frigid minus 15C across the South Island tonight – but it’s expected to be even colder overnight Saturday.
    Niwa forecaster Ben Noll said forecasters were keeping a close eye on Queenstown where it could reach one of the coldest temperatures since record keeping began 145 years ago.

    The coldest temperature ever recorded in the popular resort town was -12.2C in 1995.

    British Columbia, Above Washington State.
    FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Environment Canada says we’ve set a new record for snowfall on October 1. On Saturday, Fort St. John received 23 cm of snow with another centimetre on Friday.

    The old snowfall record for October 1 was set in 1954 with 6.6 cm of snow.

    The previous record dated back exactly 100 years to 1916 when 5.6 centimetres fell.

    Unfortunately because Environment Canada stopped measuring snowfall in Saskatoon in 2007, the record cannot officially be “”broken””.

  47. BOMBSHELL EMAIL: Clinton Camp “Demands” “Compliant Citizenry” for Her Master Plan.
    An email released in the recent Wikileaks dump laid out Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s real plan for the future — and it didn’t include justice, equality or fairness. Instead, Clinton’s plan for the future revolved around maintaining political power while working to create an “unaware” and “compliant” citizenry.
    Clinton’s plan isn’t to create a stronger America — it is to create a public that doesn’t understand what the government is doing to it, and, as a result, is largely oblivious to how the government is taking control of their lives. When the public becomes content with keeping up with the Kardashians, it fails to grasp how the government is ruining the country.

    Experts say that solar activity as low as it currently is has not been seen since the mini-ice age that took place between 1645 and 1715 – a period known as the Maunder Munimum where the entire Thames froze over.

    A new model has allowed experts to predict solar activity with more accuracy than ever before and it suggests that magnetic activity will fall by 60 per cent between 2030 and 2040.

    The model looks at the Sun’s ’11-year heartbeat’ – the period it takes for magnetic activity to fluctuate. This cycle was first discovered some 173 years ago.

    However, a mathematician has established a more up-to-date model that can forecast what the solar cycles will look like based upon dynamo effects in two layers of the Sun.

    I consider R. C. Sutcliffe’s 1966 book Weather and Climate to be a very honest and easily read. And I find that it has recently been republished by W. W. Norton & Company as a paperback. In it (Chapter 7, Radiation and Energy Exchanges) he wrote (2nd sentence): “Here and there, it is true, in volcanoes and hot springs the internal heat is locally noticeable but, with these exceptions, the heat of the earth, generated by the radioactivity of its mineral substances, is sealed within the crust and mantle of the earth and leaks out into the oceans and atmosphere at an entirely negligible rate.” Which your recent PSI article suggests: Maybe not.

    I spent 30+ years in northern Minnesota after which I moved to Oregon. To have something to do during retirement I bought a recreational property about 50 miles east-southeast of Crater Lake. About 13 miles east of my cabin is Gearhart Mtn which seems to have blown its top also. I have not yet hiked up to its 8364ft summit. I have read that geologists do not consider Gearhart to be a part of the volcanic Cascade range.

    About 50ft to the east of my cabin (about 4800ft) is the beginning of a 30+ft vertical rimrock of extruded lava which extends several miles to the south with a few breaks where the extruded lava has crumbled so one can climb to a generally flat plateau covered with thickly scattered with head-sized rocks which came from somewhere not obvious unless it was from Gearhart 13 miles to the east. To the north of this plateau is a narrow valley after which the land rises to form a somewhat similar, but more sloped, plateau. Here, on the plateau, one finds the edges of lava flows (not extrusions) which are about 2-4ft high and they repeat maybe every 200ft as the plateau slopes upward.

    I give this somewhat detailed description to ask: Why consider only volcanoes?

    I have pondered the glaciers which are accepted to have covered the northern portions of the Northern Hemisphere’s continents more than once and the last time possibly only melted 10,000 years ago. Now, it seems to be a no-brainer to consider that it has to snow a lot to form these glaciers. And where they have formed strongly suggests these continents likely have surrounded the Arctic Ocean as they do now with the North Pole somewhere near the middle of this ocean. So it is easy to image what could happen if the Arctic Ocean were heated by its bottom to the surface temperatures of the Tropical Oceans.

    A fact I know is the “radioactivity of its mineral substances’ is due to nuclear fission of isotopes which have half-lives. Thus, this radioactivity and its heating must be decreasing. And if the core of the earth is molten, there could be circulations which might bring high densities of this fissionable matter near other high densities of fissionable matter so that a critical mass is created and a fission explosion occurs as in the fission bomb we made. Of course, an explosion is not necessary create to increase the rate of the nuclear decay as is done in the controlled fission reactions of nuclear power plants.

    And, letting my imagination run wild, I know stars, our sun, is composed of primary of hydrogen, which is understood to be undergoing fusion reactions to produce a ‘surface’ temperature which emits the solar radiation necessary to maintain the surface temperature of the earth as it does. Again, because we humans have been unable to create a controlled fusion reaction, maybe the fusion reactions somewhere in the interior of the stars and our sun, are occurring as fusion explosions also.

    I have no idea, I only have an imagination.

    Have a good day, Jerry

  55. Have you heard of Mr. Lawrence Pierce’s book, A new little ice age has started? It did not come up in a search of your site.

    Australia’s cherry season predicted to be expensive after unseasonably cold weather
    By Anthony Pancia, Monday December 12, 2016 – 18:04 EDT

    A spokesperson from Coles said weather had led to “an industry-wide shortage of cherries”. – ABC
    Cherries from farms in Tasmania, Victoria, New South Wales and South Australia will be the “most expensive ever grown in history”, says the president of the Cherry Growers Association of Australia.

    Farmers on the eastern seaboard have been hit hard by continued rain, unseasonably cold weather and low pollination spread which has reduced the annual harvest to just 40 per cent of the previous year.

    The low yield has forced supermarkets to maintain the high price for cherries.

    Tom Eastlake, president of the Cherry Growers Association of Australia, said the situation was “unprecedented”.

    “Everyone just got smashed,” Mr Eastlake said.

    “We are about three weeks to a month behind schedule in some places and little to no yield.

    “Nothing like this has ever happened before across every production region in [eastern] Australia.”

    Mr Eastlake said growers were doubly stung by a typical outlay of costly fertilising and fungicide programs which had been applied prior to the dramatic weather events.

    “This will be the most expensive crop per cherry grown in history,” Mr Eastlake said.

    “Unfortunately when you’ve already committed to your full fertilising, fungicide, pruning and labour program and you then find out you don’t have any yield?

    “It’s going to be a tough year.”

  57. Storm brings record rainfall to L.A., while snow temporarily closes the Grapevine
    The storm, the second of two systems that dumped rain in the drought-plagued region, left an inch or more of precipitation in some areas. Together, the fronts helped make December the wettest in Los Angeles in six years, with 4.08 inches of rain — 265% above normal, according to the National Weather Service.

  58. Gillette Wyoming
    Gillette has whitest Christmas ever
    Gillette’s record-setting white Christmas is keeping the city Public Works department busy as it tries to keep the roads clear while a combined 8 inches of snow fell Sunday and Monday.

    The record for the whitest Riverton Christmas was shattered this year and News 13’s Landon Harrar tracked down the effect of all the snow on Riverton’s airport.
    The amount of snow almost doubled the previous record of Christmas snow during the holiday.
    Trevor LaVoie at the airport shared, “The previous record for Riverton was around four inches, we had about three years of that occurring and this year we had close to seven inches that occurred through this event.”
    Snowfall records started being cataloged in 1907.

    5)South Jersey Spring snow and record cold: Early April record cold did some damage to crops like peaches and blueberries. Then even more rare for April, accumulating snow, as much as two to five inches of early spring snow, fell on Atlantic County on April 9.

  59. Plains city on track for snowfall record in 2016

    BISMARCK,North Dakota is on track to beat a snowfall record.
    As of Tuesday, the city had seen 43.5 inches of snow and trailed its year-to-date record by only 2.3 inches, The Bismarck Tribune reported. The record was set in 2008, with 45.8 inches of snow falling between July and December, according to National Weather Service data.

    Blizzard will bury New England under two feet of snow today, ahead of bitterly cold New Year that could see a record-breaking 48 states below freezing

    Baker County snow records a joke!
    Putting a more precise figure to this question, however, is problematic.

    Baker City’s weather statistics, as compiled by the National Weather Service, are taken by automated sensors at the airport, about three miles north of town.

    But the Weather Service hasn’t measured snow depths at the airport since about 2001, when the agency replaced human observers with the sensors.

  60. ‘Gender-Equal Snow Ploughing’ Plunges Stockholm into Chaos.
    Politicians in Stockholm said the policy of “gender-equal” snow removal has failed after the weather brought Sweden’s capital to a standstill last week, with hospitals reporting a fourfold increase in broken bones.
    Previously, fresh snowfalls were cleared first from main roads and by areas like construction sites before being removed from pavements and cycle lanes. As men are more likely to drive and women more likely to travel on foot, more women slipped on the ice which led to complaints that the system was sexist.

  61. Hi Robert; last night I was looking for the “ice age” site on my tablet so I could read the newest news from your site. when I googled it (I don’t have it loaded on my tablet) amazing things showed up. there is news links out there where persons of influence are starting to talk about where we are in the beginnings of a new ice age. I just thought you should know that your efforts are starting to take hold.

  62. I’m wondering with the warm last two winters in the states after the 3 cold ones I’m wondering if these exstreams between cold winters and warm winters is actually part of the ice age other words right before the system is getting ready to switch from one mode to the new mode you get these battles of exstreams for a while and this warm winter isnt from global warming but part of the cycle play out that is warning us something is getting ready to switch in the system and right before the switch you get these year to year exstreams in eather direction.the next few years will be interesting to see how this all plays out.

  63. One of the articles on this site indicates an increase in volcanic activity following a prolonged cooling phase. Does this planetary cooling cause a contraction of the earth’s crust which would apply pressure to the molten layers below and as a result, more volcanic activity? This seems plausible.

  64. First cold wave in Brazil, 2017: Brazilian capitals of many different States (including São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro) had their coldest night in the year (April 28th, 2017) reaching typical winter levels.

    Also São Paulo has broken a record lasting 46 years by having its coldest afternoon for the month of April. Notice São Paulo is located at 23°S and 800m height (the State of São Paulo is cut by the Capricorn).

    The cold wave has even reached the State of Bahia, tropical zone of the country thus bringing unusual strong wind and heavy rain for the month.–2267

  65. Heavy rain and snowfall in subtropical South America 8-10/06/2017.

    Chile: heaviest snowfall since the 50’s in the Atacama desert and Antofagasta region close mining activities.

    Brazil: Heavy rain, floods, frosts, sleet and early snowfall in the State of Rio Grande do Sul and State of Santa Catarina.
    The oddest thing about it is the mass of cold air has come from the west and not from the south, following a huge impulse by the jet stream.

  66. Al Gore’s hypocrisy knows no boundqries:


    On Friday, Al Gore’s sequel to “An Inconvenient Truth” – “An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power” – arrives in movie theaters across the country. But there’s another inconvenient sequel worth noting and, like most sequels, this one is even worse than the original.

    Gore’s hypocritical home energy use and “do as I say not as I do” lifestyle has plunged to embarrassing new depths.

    In just this past year, Gore burned through enough energy to power the typical American household for more than 21 years, according to a new report by the National Center for Public Policy Research. The former vice president consumed 230,889 kilowatt hours (kWh) at his Nashville residence, which includes his home, pool and driveway entry gate electricity meters. A typical family uses an average of 10,812 kWh of electricity per year, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration.
