Deadly cold in Europe – Gas export record

41 people dead (so far): 18 in Poland, six in the Czech Republic, five in Lithuania, four in France, four in Slovakia, two in Romania, two in Italy, seven in Estonia.

Last night, the thermometer dropped to -21C in the mountainous areas of Croatia and Bosnia, -20C in Limbach, northern Germany, -19C in southern Poland, -18C near Liege, Belgium and -10C on the outskirts of London.

In Switzerland, -36C was recorded in Glattape (1,850 meters altitude).

It is so cold that in Belgium, many cities are forcing homeless people to seek shelter.

In Ireland, which is expecting the most snowfall since 1982, residents rushed to the supermarket to buy food, but found many empty shelves in supermarkets.

In the UK, the Netherlands, the Balkans and Scandinavia, snow and cold caused problems in air and rail traffic.

Gas export record

Gazprom, the Russian gas group, said it has recorded an export record for six days in a row in Europe. The latest record was on Monday with 666.8 million cubic meters.

Hundreds of schools are closed in Britain after one of the coldest days for this time of year in three decades.

Many schools were also closed today in Ireland, northern Portugal, Bosnia and Kosovo, as well as Albania, where many villages and small towns were inaccessible.

“Siberian cold in Europe, 41 people died from the cold, but not a word in the Dutch MSM,” says Argiris. “I live in the Netherlands and I found out the news about the canals in Amsterdam by reading the Greek news. But each wildfire in Australia always makes headline news in the Dutch MSM.”

  1. In the ’70s there was a theory called global cooling… maybe it was right…

    P.S. about exeptional cold, Robert can you take a look about my mail of the february 27th?

  2. Meanwhile here In Australia the ABC interview scientists in Spitzbergen documenting record warmth in the arctic and global warming as the cause of the cold in europe!!

  3. Over some three decades, disinterested observers following the Climate Mafia’s groupthink agitprop [cf: James Delingpole] are well-aware that extreme fluctuations such as the Arctic-Eurozone’s this Winter 2018 reflect global temperatures’ (GAST) cyclical/periodic “amplitude compression” due to peak in 2030 (140 years from the 500-year Little Ice Age that ended c. AD 1890).

    Though academics have yet to discern the fact that Earth’s 13,750-year Holocene Interglacial Epoch (skewed by the 1,500-year Younger Dryas “cold shock” from c. 12,750 – 11,250 YBP [BC 10,750 – 9,250]) ended with Kamchatka’s super-volcano Kambalny eruption in AD 1350, the looming 70+ year Grand Solar Minimum through c. AD 2100 will likely prove a grim precursor to a 102-KY Pleistocene Ice Age recurring regular as clockwork over 2.6-million years.

    Prior to our era, since Cambrian times atmospheric plus astro-geophysical factors (exo-planetary impacts, volcanism) have excluded global ice ages. Alas, from Miocene times, plate tectonic shifts uniting North and South American continental landmasses have walled off eastern from western hemispheres, adversely affecting atmospheric/oceanic circulation flows.

    We could go on, but readers get the (continental) drift. So, where do Earth’s temperate-zone populations go to save themselves? The answer is: Off-planet, straight up, via “fictionite” skyhooks or quantum telesponders to giant intra-solar refugia, and soon enough the stars.

    • Where do you go? To Florida!

      I found a paper that examined Florida when the cold hits Europe and the Gulf Stream slows down. The heat backs up in Florida and it has warmer winters (more like present summers).

      Texas also benefits with more rain. Basically, everywhere tropical and near tropical from the Gulf States of the USA on south does pretty well. Though watch out for droughts in California…

      In Europe, the rain belt moves. Places that are presently wet dry out some and the dry spots get wetter. There’s an odd historical oscillation of Roman Empire vs Greeks as the water moves. Similar oscillators seen in Egypt vs Middle East areas.

      Essentially, the tropical belt is fine most everywhere, and the “upstream” of the major ocean currents does well. Folks depending on warm water delivery (i.e. north Europe) do not-so-well. The rain band moves so North Africa vs Levant vs South Europe vs North Europe has water changes that can help or hurt. (France in the LIA had famine from deluges of water ruining the grain harvests… too much of a good thing… but more rain in Egypt or Spain would be a benefit)

      FWIW, my present schedule is shooting for a move to Florida in about 1 or 2 years max.

  4. Now it’s even more important for the US to build the pipelines and export terminals for LNG. Keep on fracking!

  5. And none of this is being reported by the BBC! Anyone on this site who lives in the UK should phone those liars and ask why it’s not being reported. The more people complain, the better. People should be told the truth. Phone number is 03700 100 222.

  6. UK Gas shortage: What might happen if National Grid reserves run out during freezing temperatures?

    “Cold weather across the country is leading large parts of it to grind to a halt.

    That includes what some might say is the most important thing during a cold snap like this: the gas that powers the heating that keeps us warm. The National Grid has warned that it is in danger of running out of gas, and needs the market to step up and provide more.”
