  1. Winter 2016-17 In Priest River, North Idaho we had 12″ of ice on the drive after 3 years of barely 3″. We got a lot of snow as well and a very cold long wet Spring.

  2. I realize how miserable that may feel (especially since my recollection of camping in summer in eastern Canada is that it tends to be humid as well)…

    but personally I just went through 24 hours of what could have been hell on earth, had it not been for my fossil fuel run car (and air conditioning)! We were having extreme heat and humidity, and the power went out for 24 hours due to a brief, but bad storm (high wind knocked some large tree limbs onto one of the wires and something else blew in the system blew up).

    I’d guess it was aabout 100 degrees F and possibly as much
    as 100% humidity (hard to tell for sure since I did not have the computer to look it up) but that’s what we’ve been getting lately). Not all unusual for this area in the summer, I am in the Southeast after all.

    But IF it hadn’t been for electricity elsewhere and my fossil fueled car I could have ended up having a heat stroke. It very quickly got miserably hot and stuffy in the house as I was afraid to open the windows lest I get more humidity inside. But… my car has (blessed) air conditioning and had about 3/4 a tank of gas. In town (6 miles from where I live) there was electricity and all businesses are air conditioned… so I could go get something to eat other than a peanut butter sandwich, get some cold water to drdink, gas up the car the rest of the way, and spend the day in relative comfort. Nothing much on the news, and calling them only got a message that the electric company had no idea how long the power outage would last. There were tens of thousands of other customers with the same issue.

    So in retrospect (and after tossing out all perishables in the fridge and freezer, once I got a whiff of rotten chicken in the kitchen) …. all I can say is, why would the AGW nuts think electricity and fuel and cars be a bad thing if you were having excessive heat increase?

    God bless electricity, AC and my car!

    Hope eastern Canada gets a break from their cold summer tho!

  3. Abrupt onset of the Little Ice Age triggered by volcanism and sustained by sea-ice/ocean feedbacks

    Baffin Island mentioned. This was the main source of “ice-growth” during the Last Great Ice-Age. There have been several articles on Baffin Ice disappearance since 2008 or so. Underwater volcanoes were apparently not examined in these studies however.

  4. Does the position of the magnetic poles govern where the cooling and precipitation occurs based on its effect on the incoming cosmic rays during any size of ice age?
