Desperately, mainstream media outlets are reporting that “climate change is contributing to the record [high] fall temperatures”. However, what they fail to acknowledge -let alone explain- is that two-thirds of the United States is currently suffering well-below-average temperatures and record cold.
Anomalous warmth has indeed been lingering over the east this November, but to lay this phenomenon at the feet of anthropogenic global warming is a dangerous game, and one far too simplistic.
Localized heatwaves will always occur, even in the depths of an ice age — the bigger picture is what’s important though, and this week the bigger picture looks like this:
Heat records are outstripping cold records up and down the east coast this month, that’s true. Heat records have also outnumbered cold records throughout the year in many eastern cities — but this is due to two forcings: 1) the position of the jet stream, and 2) the Urban Heat Island (UHI) Effect—a topic little reported on yet crucial to incorporate when analyzing temperature datasets.
Unsurprisingly, it is only the heat that is making the headlines while the dominating cold has largely been ignored. This obfuscation only emboldens climate activists on their blind push for socialism (whether they know that’s the upshot of their actions or not). It is also merely one move in the globalists’ playbook, with their aim to to divide us, to drive world economies into the ground, and to make life so bloody hard that we’re all begging for the “great reset” — but then guess who comes out on top after the dust settles… it won’t be the likes of you or me, and while I feel Electroverse is being censored now, in the years to come I know in my heart of hearts I will be completely de-platformed.
So, if the IPCC and their MSM lapdogs are going to blame the east’s November heat on “global warming” then they need to do the same with the record cold currently gripping two-thirds of the North American continent.
They do make a valiant attempt, but unfortunately for them, science and logic simply aren’t on their side.
Alarmists claim that the Arctic is warming faster than everywhere else, and that this phenomenon is weakening the jet stream. They say the difference in temperature between the Arctic and the mid-latitudes fuels the jet stream, and that a disproportionately warming Arctic is reducing that temperature difference, weakening the winds to favor a wavier flow.
But hold on a minute, I count at least two insurmountable issues with this.
Why is the Arctic warming faster than everywhere else?
Well, researchers can’t even agree on this one themselves. But there is a weak consensus: the Arctic’s reflectivity –albedo– is reducing due to global warming: “If the sea ice melts, that will remove that white surface off of the ocean, and what will be exposed is this darker ocean surface that will absorb more of the sun’s heat,” claims global change ecologist Isla Myers-Smith.
A simple enough theory for the layman to understand, and perhaps that’s why it was chosen. Unfortunately for the alarmists, however, it just doesn’t work. A study led by NASA’s Patrick Taylor explains why: “It was previously thought that amplified polar warming was caused by melting ice, lowering surface albedo,” says Taylor. “Surface albedo at the poles, however, is lowest in the summer, which is when we see the weakest temperature response.”
Taylor’s results suggest that summertime changes in cloud cover reflects a lot of the sun’s energy, offsetting the low surface albedo, and that it must be something else that determines the amount of warming: “The total warming at the poles is due to changes in clouds, water vapor, surface albedo and atmospheric temperature,” he says. “But there is greater warming in the winter than in the summer and that is caused by energy transport.” Taylor believes this seasonality of the polar warming is a result of energy in the atmosphere that is being transported to the poles through large weather systems, but he concludes that much more study is needed in order to fully understand the climate sensitivity.
Basically, AGW-funded scientists don’t have a conclusive answer as to why the Arctic is warming faster than everywhere else, but the politics and the IPCC demand a consensus — the science must provide policy makers with all the answers, and all the answers must read ‘human CO2 emissions’.
And for those who don’t see AGW as a fear-instilling ruse, how do you explain this:
Why isn’t the same phenomenon happening in Antarctica?
Modern climate science states that “because the Earth’s polar regions are warming more quickly than the rest of the world, the temperature contrast that drives jet streams has decreased” which makes for a weak and wavy jet stream flow. However, satellite data reveals that sea ice extent around the southern pole has actually GROWN over the past 40+years, and shows temperatures have had no real trend.
According to the AGW ‘Polar Amplification’ theory, Antarctica should be mirroring the trends seen in the Arctic — warming global temperatures should be melting sea ice exposing the darker sea beneath, absorbing the heat and increasing temperatures, but this simply isn’t happening and modern climate science has no explanation, it does’t even address the point. Furthermore, polar outbreaks in the southern hemisphere –caused by a wavy jet stream– are actually on the increase, just as they are in the northern hemisphere, even though Antarctica isn’t warming: this fact alone renders the ‘Polar Amplification’ theory junk.
There are many additional forcings that cast doubt on the AGW theory, including ocean circulation cycles and an influx of cloud-nucleating cosmic rays — but the globalists are running the show, that has been clear for some time. And thanks to their efforts, facts such as these will never reach the population at large. Instead, the “everything is your fault” narrative will continue to dominate, and the useful idiots brandishing placards and promoting the division online will play an ironic role in their own downfall.
Things will get tougher.
But perhaps a “climate reset” will beat the globalists to it.
A Grand Solar Minimum appears to be on the horizon, and no matter the money and control you have on planet Earth, you will remain powerless against the multimillennial will of the cosmos.
She will have the last laugh.
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.
