Russians freeze to death – Strongest winter in decades

“Russia is enduring its harshest winter in over 70 years, with temperatures plunging as low as -50 degrees Celsius,” reports Russia Today. Dozens of people have already died, and almost 150  hospitalized.

­The country has not witnessed such a long cold spell since 1938, meteorologists said, with temperatures 10 to 15 degrees lower than the seasonal norm all over Russia.

The Moscow region saw temperatures of -17 to -18 degrees Celsius on Wednesday, and the record cold temperatures are expected to linger for at least three more days. Thermometers in Siberia touched -50 degrees Celsius, which is also abnormal for December.

Over the weekend, meteorologists predict temperatures will plunge even lower in the Moscow region, hitting -25. The Russian capital is also expected to be swept with snow, RIA Novosti reported.

  1. It seems the LIA has returned? maybe. What is or should be of real concern to our AGW fixated governments is what you, Robert, point out in your book Not By Fire But By Ice, on the very last page(2nd ed.), {and this is not a spoiler people, it just may make you want to read the book!} I’ll paraphrase:

    ‘The following cycle beats are coincidentally due:
    1. The 179 year Solar retrograde cycle
    2. The 360 year Little Ice-Age cycle
    3. The 1,440 year Ice-Age cycle
    4. The 11,500 year Ice-Age cycle
    5. The 100,000 year Ice-Age cycle ‘
    (just think about that for a second…)

    “… and we’re worried about global warming?” !

    It’s really just a matter of time. Whether it’s one, five, ten, one hundred or perhaps a little farther away in years than that, it will happen.
    Of that, there is no doubt.

  2. Isn’t it a coincidence that all these cyles are due at the same time. Coincidentally the sun is not doing what it usually does at the end of the eleven year cyle. It is almost dead! The regular cyle of sunspots every eleven years regulates our magnetic field and the strenth of it on earth. We are seeing the first signs of what is to come. The poles are moving faster and faster. The winters are getting worst even if here in the US we haven’t had the full effect yet due to the weakened jet streams pouring the cold air down on us. It will come. When it does, we will wish for global warming. It is like Robert wrote in his books, when it comes it will be fast, hard and deep. We will not know what hit us. 🙁

  3. What comes around goes around the world. Waitin for this weather to freeze up some lakes,so we can ice fish,straight up. Great lakes water temps hold so much heat that they effect(retard) continental winters here. PDO(world heat island)must be a factor. Joe Bastardi says PDO is the key to world climate temp avgs because the pacific ocean covers 70 percent of earth area + its heat reserve,he or they I think are very correct… when the math of world temps (excluding co2)understands heat transfer from our life giving sun. No exceptions except God.

  4. This is very important news. but the MSM in the Netherlands do not report this. But when some time ago there was a heat wave in Moscow, it was all over the news. And then they didn’t mention that Moscow has a huge Urban Heat Island effect, because the city has grown considerably in recent years. No, it was all because of global warming. The heat wave didn’t last very long and got a lot of attention. This monster winter (Piers Corbyn calls it The Beast from the East) will last for months, but the Dutch MSM keep quiet about it, as long as possible. This is how people are being brainwashed.

  5. I am quite concerned about the possibility for any of the three possibilities, one of which is going to happen: Dalton, Maunder or Full Glaciation. My hope is that it will be one of the first two, but these are not soft options and are imminent. What is really concerning to me now is that we are on the peak of solar cycle 24. While it is week we should be getting some slight benefit. However this doesn’t seem to be happening as the NH has been plunged into a fourth successive cold winter. With the downside of cycle 24 due to begin probably within a year the average climate is about to become much cooler and the winters colder and longer.

    The problem with real world climate change is that coldwards tipping points do exist (unlike those of the AGW globalist movement which are efforts of the imagination). An Ice Age could begin tomorrow or next week or next year and we could easily know about it within days (or even hours). It will be a horrible way to die and he survivors will be those with the guns. There will be no pity or mercy for the unprepared.

    I am hoping we have at least one Grand Minimum left which does not turn into a full glaciation. My optimistic guess is we have a Maunder coming for the next sixty years but I cannot deny the awful possibility that a Full Glaciation is about to begin and the lives of our children will be short and cold and brutal.

  6. Can we the IPCC models ? Did they ‘predict’ this ? Where are the algorithmic details and logical details of their ‘modelling’ ? If these models can’t predict this winter’s activity, why would anyone dunce believe ‘weather predictions’ circa 2100 ?
