The mercury dipped below 20C on the dual-island Caribbean nation of Trinidad and Tobago for the second time this month — “a rare occurrence,” according to the T&T Meteorological Service.
Wednesday’s overnight low sank to an unusually chilly 19.7C (67F), prompting many Trinis to use the popular local phrase, “it making cold”–one I’m stealing btw.
“This is the second time this month that temperatures went below the 20C mark,” writes the Met Service in a FB post (see below).
“The other occurrence was on the Jan. 4, when a temperature of 19.5C was recorded.”
Cold winds originating from the north have been the main factor involved in driving down T&T temps, as historically low solar activity continues to weaken the jet stream, reverting its usual tight zonal flow to more of a wavy meridional one:
And although not threatening 1964’s (solar min of cycle 19) record low of 16.1C, the persistent cooler-than-average readings have still been a shock to the system for many T&T locals:
Juliet Charles: “Yup, last couple of nights have been really cold, especially living up in Santa Cruz.”
Sally E Khan: “Last night was cold cold cold … and even now it’s still chilly.”
What ‘credible’ scientists believe is going on with the climate
Arctic air is being ‘unlocked’ from the far-northern-latitudes far-more regularly of late, with these cold masses then delivered to the lower-latitudes on the back of a weak & wavy meridional jet stream flow.
Furthermore, an influx of Cosmic Rays (CRs) is bombarding Earth’s ever-waning magnetosphere, contributing to the cooling. The work of Svensmark, et al suggests that CRs seed clouds, with cloud cover increasingly being accepted as the most important player in short-term climate change (Nikolov).
“Clouds are the Earth’s sunshade,” writes Dr. Roy Spencer, “and if cloud cover changes for any reason, you have global warming — or global cooling.”
In addition, Cosmic Rays have also been found to heat the muons in subsurface, silica-rich magma.
The upshot of this being an uptick in high-level volcanic eruptions, with particulates ejected to altitudes above approx. 32,800 ft (10 km), and into the stratosphere, being another big contributor to global cooling (researchgate.net).
The cold times are returning in line with historically low solar activity.
But don’t let a hibernating Sun lull you into a sense of ‘space weather security,’ because as Earth’s shields also continue to go down (due to an intensifying GSM and, independently, a magnetic excursion), plasma outbursts from our host star will actually have a much larger impact here on the ground — and we’re due another ‘big one,’ too (see the article at the bottom of the page for more on that).
Our modern grid-dependent civilization is entering uncertain times.
However, there’s no need for doom and despair, as the upcoming shifts -however extreme- are entirely survivable for those properly prepared — learn of the changes, relocate if need be, and grow your own.
Those who reject the empire model and return to Earth have little to fear.
