Atmospheric Compression Snows and Floods Europe & N Hemisphere Cools ~ Adapt2030


 

 

Note: Does the global warming cult have an explanation for the record cold temps and record breaking snowfalls in the Northern Hemisphere? Not likely, they’re praying for a massive volcanic eruption so they can say the ash cooled things down…

A rare Medicane roared over the southern Mediterranean countries with an atmospheric compression event, biblical folds in Greece and three feet of snow with nine foot snow drifts.

GSM Update 11/9/17 – Record North American Snow – Fireball In Germany – Crop Loss – Preparedness


 

 

Early Snow in North America Breaks Record Over one-quarter of the area of the Lower 48 had snow on the ground on Nov. 8. This is the largest areal coverage of snow on that date in at least 14 years, according to NOAA data. In fact, snow cover over North America is also at its most expansive for this time of year since the middle of the past decade, as Dr. Judah Cohen, director of seasonal forecasting at Atmospheric and Environmental Research (AER), a Verisk Business, brought to our attention. The heaviest snow cover was found in the northern Rockies and the Canadian Rockies, but snow was also on the ground over a sizable swath of the High Plains, northern and central Plains, and dusted parts of the interior Northeast after a brief round of snow the previous day. This included the season’s first snow in the northern Texas Panhandle on Nov. 8. https://weather.com/storms/winter/new… https://www.nohrsc.noaa.gov/snowfall_v2/ http://www.krtv.com/story/36795596/bu… https://www.joe.co.uk/news/weather-fo… https://watchers.news/2017/11/08/very… https://news.google.com/news/headline… Sickness spreads among Ambae villagers in Vanuatu as volcano remains active: http://news.xinhuanet.com/english/201… https://news.mongabay.com/2017/11/glo… https://www.winnfm.com/news/local/242… The vulnerability of countries worldwide to extreme natural events has declined this year, according to this year’s World Risk Report, an alliance of German aid agencies.

A record-breaking snowfall in British Columbia knocked out power and shut down roads on Tuesday, October 24. A total of 23 centimeters, or nine inches, fell, which broke the record of 15.2 centimeters, according to a news report. More snow fell on Wednesday morning, bringing the total to 55 centimeters, or about 21 inches, for the two days. https://ca.news.yahoo.com/record-21-i… The first winter storm of 2017-18 came in a fury Friday — causing mayhem for municipalities and travelers across the Northland and dousing a warm fall in a coat of snow and slush. Lake Superior waves caused major damage to the Duluth Lakewalk and Brighton Beach, causing city officials to close large parts of those popular recreation areas until further notice. The waves — pushed by wind gusts in excess of 60 mph, and coming on top of already-high lake levels — caused flooding in Canal Park, on Park Point, on Madeline Island and near Ashland, among other areas. The snow totaled more than 10 inches at the Duluth International Airport — a new daily record for the city in October. Rain quickly changed over to snow during the Friday morning commute in downtown Duluth, causing havoc for drivers trying to navigate the avenues.http://www.duluthnewstribune.com/news… https://watchers.news/2017/10/27/dr-c… https://watchers.news/2017/10/27/larg… http://www.sibconline.com.sb/no-its-n… http://www.express.co.uk/news/world/8… https://watchers.news/2017/10/27/extr… http://www.aljazeera.com/news/2017/10… http://www.alaskahighwaynews.ca/regio… https://weather.com/storms/hurricane/… https://news.mb.com.ph/2017/10/27/p50… https://watchers.news/2017/10/27/trop… Please Visit Our Facebook Resources: Solar Shutdown: https://www.facebook.com/SolarShutdown/ Comet C/2017 K2 – Panstarrs: https://www.facebook.com/OppenheimerR… Plasma Geology: https://www.facebook.com/Plasma-Geolo… Oppenheimer Ranch Project: An experiment in high alpine sustainability. https://www.facebook.com/oppenheimerr… Please SUBSCRIBE to our channel if you enjoyed the content.

Penguin disaster as only two chicks survive from colony of 40,000 ‘Catastrophic breeding event’ leads to demands for a marine protected area to be set up in East Antarctica


The declining penguin populations in Antarctica

 
 
13 October, 2017
A colony of about 40,000 Adélie penguins in Antarctica has suffered a “catastrophic breeding event” – all but two chicks have died of starvation this year. It is the second time in just four years that such devastation – not previously seen in more than 50 years of observation – has been wrought on the population.
The finding has prompted urgent calls for the establishment of a marine protected area in East Antarctica, at next week’s meeting of 24 nations and the European Union at the Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR) in Hobart.
In the colony of about 18,000 breeding penguin pairs on Petrels Island, French scientists discovered just two surviving chicks at the start of the year. Thousands of starved chicks and unhatched eggs were found across the island in the region called Adélie Land (“Terre Adélie”).
The colony had experienced a similar event in 2013, when no chicks survived. In a paper about that event, a group of researchers, led by Yan Ropert-Coudert from France’s National Centre for Scientific Research, said it had been caused by a record amount of summer sea ice and an “unprecedented rainy episode”.
The unusual extent of sea ice meant the penguins had to travel an extra 100km to forage for food. And the rainy weather left the chicks, which have poor waterproofing, wet and unable to keep warm.
This year’s event has also been attributed to an unusually large amount of sea ice. Overall, Antarctica has had a record low amount of summer sea ice, but the area around the colony has been an exception.
Ropert-Coudert said the region had been severely affected by the break-up of the Mertz glacier tongue in 2010, when a piece of ice almost the size of Luxembourg – about 80 km long and 40km wide – broke off. That event, which occurred about 250km from Petrels Island, had a big impact on ocean currents and ice formation in the region.
“The Mertz glacier impact on the region sets the scene in 2010 and when unusual meteorological events, driven by large climatic variations, hit in some years this leads to massive failures,” Ropert-Coudert told the Guardian. “In other words, there may still be years when the breeding will be OK, or even good for this colony, but the scene is set for massive impacts to hit on a more or less regular basis.”
The link between climate change and the sea-ice extent around Antarctica is not very clear. Sea ice has been increasing in recent years, which could be attributed to a rise in the amount of freshwater in the ocean around the continent caused by climate change. However, over the long term, climate change is expected to cause the sea ice to shrink dramatically.
“For the moment, sea ice is increasing and this is a problem for this species as it pushes the feeding place – the sea ice edge – farther away from their nesting place,” Ropert-Coudert said. “If it shrinks it would help but if it shrinks too much then the food chain they rely on may be impacted. Basically, as a creature of the sea ice they need an optimum sea-ice cover to thrive.”
Elsewhere, human pressures including climate change have already been having a severe impact on the numbers of Adélie penguins. On the Antarctic Peninsula, which has been badly affected by climate change, populations have been decreasing, and some researchers suggest they may become extinct there.
Ropert-Coudert said there were more anthropogenic threats on the horizon – fishing and possibly tourism – that the penguins needed protection from.
He has called for a marine protected area (MPA) to be established there.

“An MPA will not remedy these changes but it could prevent further impacts that direct anthropogenic pressures, such as tourism and proposed fisheries, could bring,” he said.
Next week, 24 countries and the European Union will meet at the CCAMLR in Hobart to discuss the potential creation of more MPAs around Antarctica.
At last year’s meeting, after years of failed negotiations, the members agreed to create the world’s largest MPA in the Ross Sea, and many expect the group to agree on East Antarctica next.
This has also been proposed by Australia and has been on the table at the CCAMLR for eight years.
The head of polar programs at WWF, Rod Downie, said: “Adélie penguins are one of the hardiest and most amazing animals on our planet. This devastating event contrasts with the image that many people might have of penguins. It’s more like ‘Tarantino does Happy Feet’, with dead penguin chicks strewn across a beach in Adélie Land.
“The risk of opening up this area to exploratory krill fisheries, which would compete with the Adélie penguins for food as they recover from two catastrophic breeding failures in four years, is unthinkable. So CCAMLR needs to act now by adopting a new Marine Protected Area for the waters off East Antarctica, to protect the home of the penguins.”
Ropert-Coudert and his colleagues are in the process of completing a scientific paper on the breeding failure and plan to submit it to a journal in the coming weeks.
When the ice goes…
 
When the ice goes, so much of the solar energy that used to reflect off of the ice and pass back into space will now go right into the ocean or into any exposed land that used to be ice covered. Almost all soil has CO2 and Methane in it, and when the sun warms it, it comes out of the previously frozen soil. We can see that in the daily methane reports.

NSIDC Visually Eliminates Record Arctic Sea Ice Gains Autumn 2017 (467) ~ Adapt 2030


 

 

With the Autumn 207 Arctic season breaking all records through the satellite ear, which the IPCC uses to prove global warming, now its become their Achilles Heal. The most observable ice growth in the Months of September and October. THE NSIDC is now complicit in trying to cover the gains by introducing new measuring methods, not the 2 standard deviations, which it has done since the beginning, now they switched to Quintile and InterDecile Ranges to make it appear visually that ice is still not anywhere near the normal levels, when in fact its broken all records in the satellite era. https://nsidc.org/greenland-today/

Climate Change Researchers Forced To Abandon Study Due To Climate Change http://vocm.com/news/climate-change-r…

DELINGPOLE: Ship of Fools III – Global Warming Study Cancelled Because of ‘Unprecedented’ Ice


A global warming research study in Canada has been cancelled because of “unprecedented” thick summer ice.

Naturally, the scientist in charge has blamed it on ‘climate change.’

According to Vice:

The study, entitled BaySys, is a $17-million four-year-long program headed by the University of Manitoba. It was planning to conduct the third leg of its research by sending 40 scientists from five Canadian universities out into the Bay on the Canadian Research Icebreaker CCGS Amundsen to study “contributions of climate change and regulation on the Hudson Bay system.”

But it had to be cancelled because the scientists’ icebreaker was required by the Canadian Coast Guard for a rather more urgent purpose – rescuing fishing boats and supply ships which had got stuck in the “unprecedented ice conditions”.

“It became clear to me very quickly that these weren’t just heavy ice conditions, these were unprecedented ice conditions,” Dr. David Barber, the lead scientist on the study, told VICE. “We were finding thick multi-year sea ice floes which on level ice were five metres thick… it was much, much thicker and much, much heavier than anything you would expect at that latitude and at that time of year.”

Clearly not one to let a crisis go to waste, Barber seized the opportunity to perform the usual alarmist clown dance for the media, explaining why this incident definitely shows that global warming is a major problem and deserving of our urgent attention.

He told Vice:

“It was clear it was from the Arctic, I just needed to be among the ice to see it,” said Dr. Barber. “What was also clear to me was that climate change has caused this event to happen.”

[Don’t you just love that “I just needed to be among the ice”? I think what he’s trying in his subtle way to tell us is: “Not all superheroes wear capes”]

Warming to his theme, he told Global News:

“This is climate change fully in action – affecting our ability to make use of marine resources and transport things.”

and

“This is a wake-up call for all of us in the country.”

Of course it is. Now Barber has the perfect excuse to share his war stories with all the other global warming experts who have had their research expeditions/publicity stunts stymied by unseasonal bouts of global warming.

There was the Ship of Fools expedition in which an Australian climate researcher called Chris Turkey had to call an expedition to the melting Antarctic after his ship got stuck in the ice.

The Caitlin Expedition – supported by the Prince of Wales – in which Pen Haddow and his team had to abandon their trip to the North Pole because it was colder than they’d expected.

Most recently there was Ship of Fools II, in which a global warming research voyage by David Hempleman Adams had to be curtailed because of unexpected ice.

What on earth can Mother Gaia be trying to tell them?

Possibly the same message she’s trying to send out to the Greenies in California with this unexpected fall of white global warming.

A rare winter-like storm brought more snow to the Sierra Nevada on Monday, giving skiers the opportunity to enjoy the slopes as summer gets underway.

At Squaw Valley, the storm dropped four inches of snow at the upper elevations and two inches at the base, delighting skiers and snowboarders who will be on the slopes past the Fourth of July for a first time in history.

“It’s definitely unique,” Squaw Valley/Alpine Meadows resort spokesman Sam Kieckhefer said. “We are seeing bathing suits and costumes on the slopes. The skiing has definitely been extremely festive.”

Apparently, she didn’t get the famous memo from the Independent a few years back.

Why, if you didn’t know better you’d almost think unseasonal bouts of snow and ice were nothing to do with “global warming” but were a natural phenomenon which had been with us since time immemorial….

The unusually cold winter of Massachusetts produced an incredible phenomenon 100 miles southeast of Boston on the island of Nantucket recently: frozen waves, or, as some are describing them, Slurpee waves.

Photographer Jonathan Nimerfroh had just finished a photo shoot when he decided to check out the beach, since they surf there in the winter.

He told GrindTV that the horizon had an eerie look to it, and upon closer inspection he discovered something very unusual.

“When I got to the top of the dunes, I could see that about 300 yards out from the shoreline the ocean was starting to freeze,” he told Shutterbug.com.

Waves were turning to slush, so Nimerfroh started taking photos of the Slurpee waves and the images started going viral Thursday.

The high temperature of the day was 19 degrees Fahrenheit and the wind was howling from the southwest, which would typically make rough or choppy conditions not good for surfing, Nimerfroh explained to Shutterbug.com.

“But since the surface of the sea was frozen slush, the wind did not change the shape,” he said. “They were perfect dreamy slush waves.

“What an experience to be absolutely freezing on the beach watching these roll in while I mind-surfed them. I wonder if a shaper can make me a special-designed slurfboard?”

The next day, Nimerfroh went back to see if the waves had melted and discovered another oddity: The same 300-yard stretch out into the ocean was frozen on the surface. It was 10 inches thick.

“No waves at all,” he told Shutterbug.com. “I’ve been asking all the fishermen and surfers if they have ever seen such a thing. This is a first, they all said.”

It fits in quite nicely to the Massachusetts winter of firsts, then.

Blast of arctic air via polar vortex to chill 42 U.S. states


As the polar vortex gets displaced to the south, the door will open for arctic air to plunge over the most of the United States as the new week progresses.

Only the Southwest, Hawaii, Alaska and South Florida will escape the grip of the upcoming arctic blast that the polar vortex can be blamed for.

“The polar vortex is a large pocket of very cold air, typically the coldest air in the Northern Hemisphere, which sits over the polar region,” stated AccuWeather.com Senior Meteorologist Alex Sosnowski.

“Occasionally, this pocket of very cold air can get dislodged farther south than normal, leading to cold outbreaks in Canada and the U.S.”

For this current outbreak, the harshest cold in relation to normal will encompass the northern Rockies and Plains. However, temperatures will also plummet throughout the Northwest and to the Gulf Coast and I-95 corridor.

The arctic blast will drop into the northern Rockies on Monday, accompanied by a snowstorm on its leading edge, then will spread across the Northwest and Plains through Wednesday.

Later in the week is when the cold will reach the I-95 corridor, but it will not be of the same magnitude as earlier in the week.

Many communities across the northern Rockies and Plains will experience a 20- to 40-degree drop in high temperatures from one day to the next.

Tuesday and Wednesday will prove to be the coldest days of the week across the northern Rockies and northern High Plains, where highs will be held to the teens with subzero lows.

“The combination of cold air, wind and other conditions, including snow in part of the Midwest and northern Plains, will send AccuWeather RealFeel® temperatures plunging into the single digits and teens.”

“Such cold will raise the risk of hypothermia and frostbite for those not properly dressed,” Sosnowski continued.

Across the Northwest, South and I-95 corridor, the arrival of the cold air will create a December-like feel with a 10- to 20-degree change in high temperatures from the preceding day.

While the chill in the South and East will not be as extreme as what communities to the west are bracing for, Sosnowski is still urging people to winterize their vehicles and plumbing.

“Freezing temperatures are possible in parts of the South and East that have not yet had such temperatures this season.”

Once the frigid air arrives, it will not be quick to depart.

Temperatures are expected to remain below freezing for nearly two weeks in the Upper Midwest, Minneapolis included.

The impending cold may set off lake-effect snow downwind of the Great Lakes later next week, when AccuWeather.com meteorologists are also monitoring the potential for a storm to bring snow to other parts of the Northeast.

Latest indications also point toward another winter storm crossing the nation next Thursday to the following Monday. With the cold air still in place, there could be a swath of snow stretching from the Northwest to the central Plains to the Northeast.

Enough cold air could even be in place for wintry weather around Portland, Oregon, and Seattle, Washington.

Continue to check back with AccuWeather.com for the latest details on the cold outbreak and any snowstorms.

Greenland: “CHASING ICE” captures largest glacier calving ever filmed – OFFICIAL VIDEO


On May 28, 2008, Adam LeWinter and Director Jeff Orlowski filmed a historic breakup at the Ilulissat Glacier in Western Greenland. The calving event lasted for 75 minutes and the glacier retreated a full mile across a calving face three miles wide. The height of the ice is about 3,000 feet, 300-400 feet above water and the rest below water.

Chasing Ice won the award for Excellence in Cinematography at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival and the Best Documentary from the International Press Association. It has won over 30 awards at festivals worldwide. Still playing in theaters worldwide.

Anchorage sets new record for longest snow season


 

 

May 20, 2013 ALASKA 232 days – it took over 30 years for Anchorage to set a new record for the longest snow season on record. The National Weather Service measured 2/10ths of an inch just after 9 p.m. Friday and 1/10th Saturday morning – breaking the old record of 230 days set in 1981-1982. Anchorage police responded to 22 crashes, 4 with injuries and 37 vehicles in distress between midnight and noon Saturday. Police say roads were wet and not icy midday and “motorists should use caution if the temperatures drop below freezing. Other parts of the city had much higher amounts of snow, however official measurements must be consistent and observed at the Sand Lake forecast office. The recent snowfall also broke the daily record for liquid precipitation, lowest maximum temperature for May 17, and a host of other records. NWS says Saturday evening’s forecast calls for “mostly cloudy with isolated snow showers in the evening…then partly cloudy after midnight – lows in the upper teens to mid 20s and north wind to 15 mph.” For Sunday, the forecast will be mostly sunny, highs in the 40s, and light winds, according to NWS. –NBC

Why should we be concerned about the next cold climate era?


Space and Science Research Corporation

Mon, 21 Jan 2013

This new era called a ‘solar hibernation’ or ‘grand minimum’ is caused by a repeating 206 year cycle of the Sun. These hibernations are accompanied by historic reductions in the energy output of the Sun. SSRC research shows the next solar hibernation will bring a long period of cold just as it has done before every time this cycle ‘turns over’ from its global warming phase to its global cooling phase. In addition, SSRC research backed by that of other researchers has shown a high degree of correlation between solar hibernations and the world’s largest earthquakes and volcanic eruptions.Mr. Casey, President of the SSRC was the first authority to notify the White House and other government agencies of this coming solar hibernation in early 2007. Numerous other scientists discovered the same cycles of the Sun. Their findings have been ignored or buried in science journals and thus essentially unknown to the public.During the first six months of 2011, NASA, The US Air Force, and the National Solar Observatory all confirmed the coming solar grand minimum. The next solar hibernation and according to the SSRC and many other scientists, the next climate change to decades of record cold has begun.

This cold era is expected to last for approximately 22 to 33 years with the coldest temperatures to be seen during the 2020’s and 2030’s either side of the bottom year of the cycle in 2031, and have temperatures on the order of that observed during the Dalton Minimum (1793-1830). We have already seen the early signs of the new climate with record cold winters globally for some of the past four years. During the winter of 2011-2012, while the central and eastern USA experienced a relatively warm winter, Europe and Asia had a difficult winter. We have entered a period of record temperature setting both hot and cold. This trend of highly variable extremes of both hot and cold within a general trend of globally declining temperatures is fully characteristic of the transition between climate changes.

That does not mean we can wait to prepare. Now that the hibernation has begun, it is possible for these unusual variations in temperatures to strike with little warning. We should not be surprised to see occasional severe crop damage and recurring food shortages in many nations at any time. Comparisons to the Dalton Minimum show that there is a high probability of social, economic and political turmoil worldwide as a result of massive crop losses from the coming cold weather. The SSRC believes this damage to the world’s agricultural systems will be sufficient to create conditions that could lead to the world’s worst subsistence crisis in recorded history. This same food crisis occurred during the last hibernation, though with significantly fewer people to feed. Historian John D. Post called that time”…the last great subsistence crisis.”

Additionally, SSRC research and that of other respected researchers shows that geophysical upheavals like the largest earthquakes and volcanic eruptions are likely to occur during these solar events. As before with the Mt. Tambora eruption in 1815 that took place during the last solar hibernation, large volcanic eruptions may greatly add to the cooling of the Earth on top of that created by the reduction in the Sun’s output. Further, the largest recorded earthquakes in US history took place in the middle of the last hibernation, the New Madrid quakes of 1811-1812. The SSRC Research Report 1-2010, (See The RC Theory page) similar to that of other researchers, established a strong link between solar hibernations and these largest geophysical disturbances. Given the likelihood of major quakes and volcanic eruptions here in the US, the SSRC immediately notified US authorities and major news outlets after release of the report.

The SSRC predicts the first possible time frame for an instance of large scale crop damage is during the record drop in global temperatures predicted by the SSRC to take place between June 2010 and November-December 2012. (See press release 2-2010). Earthquakes and volcanic eruptions of historical scale can happen at any time now that the next solar hibernation has begun.

This is the nature of the threats that the SSRC sees during the new climate era that has just begun. The obvious message here is that we need to prepare as best we can. The SSRC will do all it can to spread the word about this new climate period and its ill-effects. We will continue to pursue the SSRC Mission of urging the government and our fellow citizens to prepare for this new climate era.
