348 miles of China’s Yellow River Frozen Solid

As originally reported by xinhuanet.com, a “major” section of China’s Yellow River is frozen solid.

Driven by anomalously cold temperatures, one-sixth of China’s Yellow River -located in north China’s Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region- is currently frozen solid — a staggering 559.9 km (348 miles) was reported frozen by local authorities as of Jan. 3.

The meteorological and hydrology departments in the region, as well as local authorities along the river, have taken precautions against ice-jam flooding and dam breaches, said Qiao Jianzhong with the water affairs bureau in Linhe District, Bayan Nur City.

The 5,464-km-long (3,395 miles) Yellow River is the second-longest river in China and its section in Inner Mongolia accounts for one-sixth of the river’s total.

The Yellow River rises in the northwestern province of Qinghai and runs through nine provinces and autonomous regions in western, central, northern and eastern China.

The cold times are returning — the jet stream is weakening in line with historically low solar activity, and is diverting brutal polar cold to the lower-latitudes:

Low solar activity is weakening the stream stream, reverting it to more of a wavy flow.

This is how glaciers form.

This is also how ice ages begin.

However, it’s important to note that absolutely nothing is linear when it comes to the climate — there are ups and downs, and there are cycles upon cycles, overlapping a myriad of other cycles…

The wavy (or meridional) jet stream flow outlined above will deliver increasingly violent swings-in-extremes. In the NH, for example, as brutal Arctic air sinks southwards into one region, warm tropical air will push northwards into the adjacent — meaning heatwaves will always still occur, even in the depths of an ice age, with the evidence suggesting they actually become more severe, if more localized.

Weather fronts will intensify, and whip-up natural disasters not seen by mankind for hundreds of years.

Mega-droughts will return, and worsen; deadly wildfires will return, and worsen; extreme flooding events will return, and worsen — the upshot, however, will always be an overall cooling of the planet.

But the climate is a frustratingly complex system, and there is actually no such thing as “global” cooling (or “global” warming for that matter).

NASA’s Maunder Minimum Temperature Reconstruction Map (below) reveals some regions of the planet actually warmed during past periods of “global cooling” — the Arctic, Alaska, and the North Atlantic are three such regions, although “warm” to these areas is still well below freezing, a temperature rise of 2C in the Arctic, for example, will have little affect on ice thickness or extent.

In addition, and adding support to the intensification of the current situation, NASA has recently revealed this upcoming solar cycle (25) will be “the weakest of the past 200 years,” and the agency has correlated previous solar shutdowns with prolonged periods of global cooling here.

And solar cycle 25 is predicted to be a mere stop-off on the sun’s descent into its next full-blown Grand Solar Minimum (just picture the extent of that meridional jet stream flow once a full-blown GSM kicks in):

My advice: prepare accordingly — relocate if need be, and grow your own.

3 Thoughts to “348 miles of China’s Yellow River Frozen Solid”

    There are several glaring issues with this article:

    1. “Driven by *anomalously* cold temperatures” [citation needed]
    Literally no other site that has talked about this, not even the cited article, has claimed that Inner Mongolia has experienced unusually cold weather as of late. Where did you get that information?

    2. “A staggering 559.9 km was reported frozen”
    You do realize that the Yellow River can, and has, frozen over to much greater extents than that, right? In fact, that’s actually kind of tiny compared to what was seen in 2003, when it froze to over 1.2 thousand kilometers.

    It should also be noted that the Yellow River freezes over like this *annually*. Something like this absolutely cannot be linked to any sort of impending ice age – or even global cooling, for that matter – unless a trend is extrapolated over the course of several years. Such is not the case here, however.

    3. Most importantly, *why is the Maunder Minimum copy-and-pasted onto the butt-end of your sunspot observations graph?* Why are you trying to present forged data as fact? You’re preaching to everyone to not fall for the junk science of the AGW scam, yet have the balls to turn around and commit one of the things they’ve been getting away with since the 90s. Do you not see the hypocrisy in that? Do you not see how you’re debasing your own message by spreading misinformation like that?

    How can a river be so frozen? Doesn’t it know we are in a global warming crisis?
    oh, I remember reading that China actually recognizes that our sun is cooling!
