The alarm of “Global Warming” has given way to the more ambiguous cry of “Climate Change,” but the weather itself has been following the age old pattern of, well, changing in ways that defy forecasting.
On the heels of the COP27 climate change conference, which wrapped up last month with jet-setting world leaders flying to Egypt via private jet to discuss the danger fossil fuels poise for the planet, Mother Nature unveiled the most extensive snow cover since 1967—and winter, which arrives December 21, has not even technically started.
November’s snowfall pushed above the maximum in the 56-year recorded curve.
“Extensive snow extent early in the season is an indicator of persistent cold as we head into winter proper,” weather blog Severe Weather Europe said.
Most mainstream media outlets, however, have overlooked this data, which is inconvenient for the climate change narrative they’ve pushed religiously for decades.
A severe winter for the Northern Hemisphere promises to complicate power grids for western countries that have disrupting energy flows on multiple levels after over-investing in insufficient green energy alternatives, then turning in desperation to coal and fossil fuels to meet the shortfall, followed by sanctioning Russia. That decision chain is forcing the world into the worst energy crisis in a generation.
Zero Hedge’s Tyler Durden observes, “Since the U.S. and Europe’s natural gas storage facilities have flipped into withdrawal season, the clock starts as storage levels could quickly wind down if temperatures stay below average, which would continue to boost energy prices.”
Meteorologists’ eyes are on December as prospects look high for a white Christmas. According to the Finnish Meteorological Institute, the total snow mass for the Northern Hemisphere is tracking comfortably above the 1982-2012 average.
In other words, expect the trend to continue.
