Since the end of September, record-breaking cold has lingered over the 3.287 million km² nation of India, affecting its 1.4 billion people, and since the end of September this news has gone unreported by the MSM.
Ludhiana’s mercury is plunging deeper with each passing day, reports hindustantimes.com, with Wednesday’s maximum failing to reach double-digits.
According to data compiled by the Punjab Agricultural University (PAU), the maximum temperature in the city rose no higher than 9.6C (49F) on Wednesday — a reading 10C below the seasonal average and one that comfortably breaks the previous minimum December 16 high of 10.8C (51.4F) set back in 1973.
An overnight low of 1.4C (34.5F) was registered in Ludhiana early Wednesday morning, which, according to Dr Prabhjyot Kaur Sidhu, head of department for climate change and agricultural meteorology at PAU, was the lowest recorded temperature for December 16 since the observatory was opened in 1970.
PAU meteorological Dr KK Gill added that the cold wave is forecast to intensify in the coming days, further dropping the temperature. The University is quoted saying: “We have warned orchard/nursery owners to cover the new plants so that it doesn’t affect them.”
The record cold comes amid an ongoing battle between India’s farmers and the government in a dispute over the three farm acts which were passed by the Parliament of India in September 2020.
The acts have been described as “anti-farmer laws” by many opposition unions, and farmer unions and politicians from the opposition also say it would leave farmers at the “mercy of corporates”.
There has been widespread support for the farmers, with local businesses donating clothes and food to the protesters during the unprecedented cold.
And while there is plenty of hope, Sunejo Stephenson on Twitter succinctly sums up the misery the dispute is causing:
World leaders are hell-bent on taxing “warmth”. But this step has been taken cynically, for political kudos, and not in an honest attempt to save the planet.
Anyone capable of critical thought and/or who has read a halfway-decent portion of the literature on the topic knows Earth’s climate system is an incredibly complex and ultimately baffling one–one that we humans haven’t the second clue of coming to grips with, and yet here we are, being told with all the assurances in the world that the science is settled and that the ONLY actions we can take to avoid catastrophe are depopulation, higher taxes, fuel poverty and the overthrowing of capitalism.
But even if you have been duped by the CO2/greenhouse/warming fraud, surely no one can think so illogically to believe that a 1C rise in global temperatures since 1880 could ever be a bad thing. Plants and animals thrive in warmth and warm climates. Tropical forests cover less than 12 percent of all land, yet they contain a majority of plant and animal species on earth. The Arctic covers 10 percent of the planet’s land area, but contains only 600 plant species and only 100 species of birds, no reptiles or amphibians, and only 20 mammals.
Warming is good for life.
It is cooling that should concern us.
Both NOAA and NASA appear to agree, if you read between the lines, with NOAA saying we’re entering a ‘full-blown’ Grand Solar Minimum in the late-2020s, and NASA seeing this upcoming solar cycle (25) as “the weakest of the past 200 years”, with the agency correlating previous solar shutdowns to prolonged periods of global cooling here.
Furthermore, we can’t ignore the slew of new scientific papers stating the immense impact The Beaufort Gyre could have on the Gulf Stream, and therefore the climate overall.
Prepare accordingly— learn the facts, relocate if need be, and grow your own.
