Global….. Cooling?

by Karl Denninger, Market Ticker:

You probably didn’t know this.

The last two years have witnessed the greatest global cooling event in over 100 years — or so is claimed.

Now I won’t actually give you “the last 100 years” because we’ve only been in the satellite business for a somewhere around 50 years, and it is only through that time that we’ve had anything approaching consistent global “views” of surface temperatures. But certainly in the last 50 years the science holds up.

Oh, and incidentally, temperature volatility has been much lower than average too — which is interesting, because that’s not what you’d expect from the media screaming about “extreme” weather events.

“Climate change” hoax starting to crumble as scientists admit doom projections were totally wrong

by Vicki Batts, Natural News:

Climate change has been presented as an irrefutable fact; a happening that cannot be ignored, with even the slightest change in weather being named a harbinger of imminent disaster. But the truth is that the notion of global warming has always been up for debate — and new science continues to show that the world may not be ending, after all.

Despite what the climate change alarmists want you to believe, recent research has shown that climate change predictions have been wildly overstated. In fact, climatologists now say that the impact of human activity on climate is 45 percent less severe than expected.

A Yellow Alert Has Just Been Issued For 2 Major Volcanoes In North America

by Michael Snyder, The Economic Collapse Blog:

Massive eruptions of Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano and Guatemala’s Fuego volcano have captivated the entire world in recent days, and now it looks like even more volcanoes are starting to wake up. In fact, yellow alerts were just issued for Mexico’s Mt. Popocatepetl and Alaska’s Great Sitkin volcano. Mt. Popocatepetl and Great Sitkin both sit along the “Ring of Fire” that roughly encircles the perimeter of the Pacific Ocean, and many are becoming concerned that we may be witnessing some sort of “chain reaction” as volcanoes all over the globe begin to exhibit signs of increased activity. This even includes some unusual happenings at Yellowstone, and we will cover that near the end of this article. But to start with, let’s take a look at the yellow alert that was just issued for Mt. Popocatepetl. The following comes from a government website in Mexico

2016-18 Big Chill – NASA Confirms Global Cooling?

by Martin Armstrong, Armstrong Economics:

What I find really distasteful is how the media is so corrupt that all they want to do these days is to manipulate us into mindless drones. All we hear is Global Warming and they seem to be paid to push this just as they have done in Canada to tax each house $1,000+ to solve Global Warming? It should come as no surprise that the very same news source they have used for their Global Warming pitch has reported the greatest global two-year cooling event of the last century just occurred. Their data from February 2016 to February 2018 showed that the global average temperatures declined 0.56°C.

30 amazing years of failed climate-alarm predictions

by Art Moore, WND:

Thirty years have gone by since the “opening salvo” in the movement claiming mankind is causing catastrophic global warming, and the dire predictions of drastic temperature and sea-level rises “are well on their way to being falsified – and by a lot, not a little,” contends an energy expert.

Rob Bradley Jr., the CEO and founder of the Institute for Energy Research, pointed out claims made by NASA climate scientist James Hansen and Al Gore along with the “opening salvo,” the June 24, 1988, prediction by Philip Shabecoff in a New York Times article titled “Global Warming Has Begun.”

10 Mind-Blowing Facts About Hurricane Michael – The 3rd Most Powerful Hurricane Ever To Make Landfall In The U.S.

by Michael Snyder, End Of The American Dream:

It wasn’t supposed to be like this.  Hurricane Michael was supposed to be a relatively minor storm as hurricanes go, but it just kept getting stronger and stronger as it approached the Florida panhandle.  And when it finally did make landfall, it was an absolutely monstrous storm with sustained maximum winds of 155 miles per hour.  If those winds had reached 157 miles per hour, it would have been a Category 5 storm.  It truly was a “lawnmower from the sky” that shredded just about everything it encountered as it slammed into a part of the country that was very ill-prepared for a storm of this magnitude.  Hundreds of thousands of people are already without power, and as you will see below, one major outlet is warning that “most of the area will be uninhabitable for weeks or months”.

Does the US Military “Own the Weather”? “Weaponizing the Weather” as an Instrument of Modern Warfare?

by Prof Michel Chossudovsky, Global Research:

Environmental modification techniques have been available to the US military for more than half a century.

The issue has been amply documented and should be part of the climate change debate.

Note: There is no evidence of “weather modification” in relation to recent climatic disturbances (hurricanes), but at the same time there is no firm evidence that this climate instability is attributable to greenhouse gas emissions.

The broader issue of environmental modification techniques must be addressed and carefully analyzed. It should also be understood that the instruments of weather warfare are part of the US arsenal of weapons of mass destruction (WMD) and their proposed use by the US military against “enemies” constitutes not only a crime against humanity but to put it mildly a threat to planet earth.

You Have Been Warned: Experts Tell Us That A Cascadia Subduction Zone Earthquake And Tsunami Will Destroy Everything West Of Interstate 5

by Michael Snyder, End Of The American Dream:

One day it will happen. With little or no warning, the Cascadia Subduction Zone will produce a catastrophic earthquake and accompanying tsunami that will essentially destroy everything west of Interstate 5 in the Pacific Northwest. It will be the worst natural disaster up to that point in American history, and as you will see below, the experts are saying that we are completely and utterly unprepared for it. Of course the San Andreas Fault gets more publicity, but the truth is that the Cascadia Subduction Zone is capable of producing a quake “almost 30 times more energetic” than anything the San Andreas Fault can produce. The Cascadia Subduction Zone stretches from northern Vancouver Island all the way down to northern California, and one expert recently told CBN News that all of the major cities in the region are essentially “built on a time bomb”…

Hayward Bay Fault Line MORE DANGEROUS Than San Andreas: It’s A ‘Ticking Time Bomb’

by Mac Slavo, SHTF Plan:

Scientists are now saying that the “Big One” in California may not be caused by the San Andreas fault line, but by the Hayward Bay fault line. It is now thought to be the “ticking time bomb” fault line and more dangerous than the San Andres.

The scariest scenario for the next major earthquake may not be from the San Andreas Fault (though that one still threatens), but from the Hayward Fault that runs along the east side of the San Francisco Bay. In fact, many say that the next earthquake on the Hayward Bay fault line would be “disastrous.” According to KTUV, a magnitude 7.0 earthquake along the Hayward Fault could kill as many as 800 people and injure 18,000, according to results of a new research released Wednesday.

Climate Chaos: Following Record Heat This Summer, Experts Are Predicting There Will Be A Nightmarishly Cold Winter

by Michael Snyder, End Of The American Dream:

For most of this summer, much of the U.S. has been hit by historic heatwaves, crippling drought and unprecedented wildfires.  But if the long-term forecasts that I am about to share with you are accurate, this winter could be bitterly, bitterly cold.  The sun appears to be entering into a period of early hibernation, and that is a very troubling sign.  The primary driver of climate conditions is the giant ball of fire that our planet revolves around, and that ball of fire is beginning to behave in irregular ways.  Sunspot activity is way, way below what was expected for this year, and that is one of the reasons why so many are calling for a “big freeze” this winter.  And if we experience an extended “solar minimum”, that could mean significantly reduced temperatures and crop failures all over the planet.  At other times in history, such a scenario has meant global famine.

A Giant Crowdfunded Machine Is About to Begin Cleaning up the Pacific Garbage Patch

0

by Carey Wedler, The Anti Media:

Scientists with the Ocean Cleanup Company are gearing up to tackle the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, an expanse of garbage in the Pacific Ocean that contains as many as 1.8 trillion pieces of plastic and spans 617,763 square miles.

Using a device designed by 23-year-old inventor Boyan Slat, who dropped out of an aerospace engineering program in college to focus on developing technology to clean up the world’s oceans, the Ocean Cleanup company will actually employ plastic to suck up much of the waste. The Independent summarized how it works:

Is the Climate Change Preparation for the Pole Shift?

by Martin Armstrong, Armstrong Economics:

A reader sent this is where ice storms are happening daily this summer in Calgary, Canada. In Bavaria, where I am currently, it is the hottest in 200 years. The temperature is in the 90s (32c) and hotels, restaurants do not have air conditioning because it never gets hot here. Then in Ukraine, which it is typically in the 90s for the summer, they are experiencing the coldest summer with temperatures in the 70s.

Liberal Hypocrisy: Global warmists attend SF climate change summit in private jets

from Fellowship Of The Minds:

Last week, global warming/climate change hucksters converged on San Francisco for the three-day Global Climate Action Summit, Sept. 12-14, to lower the carbon emissions responsible for global warming.

More than 4,000 elected officials, business executives and environmentalists from around the globe flew into San Francisco International Airport (SFO) for the Summit.

So many came by fuel-guzzling, carbon-spewing private jets that they increased SFO’s corporate private jet traffic by as much as 30%.

ALTERNATIVE NEWS Ottawa Professor Blasts The US Military For “Owning The Weather” For Military Use

by Arjun Walia, Collective Evolution:

  • The Facts:Dr. Michel Chossudovsky, who is the University of Ottawa’s Emeritus Professor of Economics and has worked directly with governments on various geopolitical issues has spoken out against weather modification and the long history of its use.
  • Reflect On:Why are we spraying things into our atmosphere without the people being aware of it? Why is it such a secretive issue? Should we not know about it? Why is this topic never brought up in the climate change discussion?
