While the mainstream media clamours to claim the 45.8C recorded in France on Friday, June 28 as an all-time record high –which can only be done if you ignore the 50C in Paris in 1930 btw (Dr Waheed Uddin)– vast regions of the planet are still, believe it or not, anomalously cold.
As the French fried, some “unexpected” summer snow was falling in a western Mongolian province, a local meteorological department said Friday.
“Unexpected summer snow hit the southwestern mountainous parts of [Bayan-Ulgii Province] … with an average of 2-3 mm,” said Jagsalag Khulibek, expert of Bayan-Ulgii Province’s meteorological bureau.
Khulibek went onto call the snowfall very unusual and completely surprising.
He also explained that the unseasonable snow was brought by a strong cyclone from the Siberia.
Bayan-Ulgii Province is located in the west of Mongolia and shares borders with both China and Russia.
THE CHANGING JET STREAM
During a solar minimum, the jet stream’s usual Zonal Flow (a west–east direction) reverts to more of a Meridional Flow (a north-south direction) — this is exaggerated further during a Grand Solar Minimum, like the one we’re entering now, and explains why regions become unseasonably hot or cold and others unusually dry or rainy, with the extremes lasting for an extended period of time.
Note the recent hysteria regarding the anomalous warmth that was lingering over Greenland.
Well, Greenland’s cold temperatures didn’t up and vanish, they were simply diverted south by a wavy jet stream — and this is the main reason for the lower latitudes experiencing record low temperatures of late.
In fact, the United States just suffered it’s coldest October to May in recorded history.
We’ve known these mechanisms for decades, as this article from 1975’s Science Mag would indicate, but as they clash with the modern politicised AGW agenda, they’ve conveniently been forgotten:
Furthermore, looking at NASA’s Maunder Minimum Temperature Reconstruction Map, it would appear some regions of the planet do actually warm during global cooling — the Arctic, Alaska and S Greenland being the main ones (although ‘warm’ to the Arctic, for example, is still well-below freezing, there’s no additional melt):
Earth’s climate is cyclic, never linear — driven mainly by the sun.
And history is repeating.
Global Average Temperatures are trending cooler, even as the far-upper-latitudes trend a little warmer.
And heatwaves will always occur.
Don’t be fooled.
The cold times are returning, as the sun enters it’s next Grand Solar Minimum cycle:
