  1. That is what we can expect this year. I am in New Orleans. WE just had our 3rd dry front. In the winter it would be a cold front. Any way it is a pleasant relief to the heat and humidity. I am 59 and have never seen 3 fronts in the month of August. If this would happen in the winter, WE would be in for it.

  3. A new study by researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago reveals that it is the COLD which should concern us, not the heat.
    According to the new study, which looked at hospital visits in Illinois between 2011 and 2018: “the crude annual inpatient admission incidence rate was more than four-fold higher for cold injuries compared to heat injuries (10.2 vs 2.4 per 100,000 people),” and, crucially, patients who died because of cold temperatures were responsible for 94% of temperature-related deaths.

  4. While the world is being fed the ‘plandemic’ narrative, and the U.S. now also being fed the BLM spin, the Grand Solar Minimum is steadily encroaching on us. Despite all the modern conveniences/technology, it only take a few years of extreme weather events to disrupt the world’s food supplies and begin the geo-political storm that will result from a world short of food stocks!

  5. Question: Is the ice sheet in Greenland melting or growing? I ask this because lately I’ve read several articles about this. Some say the ice sheet is growing while others say it is melting. So which is it? Thanks in advance for your guidance.
