Prepare For "Onslaught Of Winter Storms" In Coming Days

The Weather Channel reports "an active week" is forecasted with "multiple rounds of snow, ice in the Midwest and East as bitterly cold temperatures grip parts of the nation."

Along with multiple storms forecasted from coast to coast, there will also be a "prolonged arctic outbreak gripping parts of the Plains, Midwest and will spread into parts of the Northeast, Northwest, and South later this week.

By the end of the week, The Weather Channel forecasts "110 million of you will have lows below 20° by Friday."

For much of the country, except for South Florida and Southern California, temperatures will be well below average next week.

Achtung Baby! (It's Cold Outside) – Germany's "Green" Energy Fail Rescued By Coal And Gas

Germany’s held up as the world’s wind and solar capital. But, at the moment, the ‘green’ stuff can’t be purchased, at any price.

Its millions of solar panels are blanketed in snow and ice and breathless, freezing weather is encouraging its 30,000 wind turbines to do absolutely nothing, at all. [Note: don’t forget about the constant supply of electricity from the grid that these things chew up heating their internal workings so they don’t freeze up solid!]

So much for the ‘transition’ to an all wind and sun powered future – aka the ‘Energiewende’.

Despite being the object of consternation and much vilification over the last 20 years, Germany’s coal-fired plants are now being appreciated for what they are: truly meaningful power generation sources, available on demand, whatever the weather. With a Nationwide blackout a heartbeat away, the German obsession with unreliable wind and solar is like a time bomb set to explode.

Which Countries Will Ban Fossil Fuel Car Sales First?

As President Biden moves to suspend oil and gas leasing on federal land - and has halted further development of the Keystone Pipeline - California has announced fossil-fuel vehicle sales bans by 2035. So what about on a country-level? Who has already announced future bans?

To help us answer those questions is BofA's equity strategist Haim Israel who laid out to clients in a note titled "Climate Wars" this week which countries are set to ban gasoline cars.

Climate Change Crazy: Progressives Want People To Stop Heating Their Homes In Winter

A Massachusetts climate official has announced that people who heat their homes and fuel their cars will need to have their “will” broken in order to combat emissions and climate change.

“I know one thing that we found in our analysis is that 60% of our emissions come from … residential heating and passenger vehicles,” claimed David Ismay, Massachusetts, undersecretary for climate change, during a virtual meeting with the Vermont Climate Council. “Let me say that again: 60% of our emissions that need to be reduced come from you, the person on your street, the senior on fixed-income. Right now, there is no bad guy left, at least in Massachusetts, to point the finger at and turn the screws on and now break their will, so they stop emitting. That’s you. We have to break your will.”

COVID-19 lockdowns in 2020 caused temporary global warming, study shows

When much of the world was plunged into lockdown last year as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, there was a lot of speculation that the lack of activity would benefit the environment. However, a new study shows that these changes to our lifestyles actually slightly warmed the planet for several months in 2020 in a counterintuitive finding that underscores the role of airborne particles in influencing temperatures.

In fact, the temperatures in some places of the eastern United States as well as China and Russia rose by as much as half to two-thirds of a degree, according to the study, which was published in Geophysical Research Letters. This was because there were fewer soot and sulfate particles in the air from car exhaust and burning coal. These particles normally have a temporary cooling effect on the atmosphere as they reflect the sun’s heat.

When the emissions of aerosols dropped suddenly last spring, it meant that more of the sun’s heat was able to reach the planet,...

Greta Thunberg admits to being a puppet, is now under investigation for collusion and conspiracy

Climate child Greta Thunberg is the subject of a new criminal investigation after she tweeted a list of her scripted marching orders, apparently accidentally, to her 4.8 million Twitter followers.

It appears as though the 18-year-old global warming activist was trying to tweet an “organic” post in support of the farmers protest in India when she mistakenly shared a document from her handlers outlining tactics for rallying left-wing Twitter users to join the movement.

“These are just some suggested posts, but feel free to tweet your own,” read the first bullet point on the document, which Greta quickly deleted once she realized, apparently, what she had done.

“It’s helpful if you add images or videos to your tweets (some images below),” the document went on to explain. “You can also tag others who can either reshare and/or the potential tags listed above to put pressure on them as well.”

Inconvenient Truths Not Approved By Al Gore

It was far hotter in the 1930s than it is today. But New York city and Los Angeles were not flooded by melting polar ice back in 1939. High-temperature records for 23 of our 50 states date back to the decade of the 1930s, during the worst-ever U.S. droughts in the period termed the “dust bowl.” Two-thirds of state high-temperature records were set prior to 1960, countering claims that the recent decade was “the warmest ever.”

According to official government data from the National Snow & Ice Data Center (NSIDC), Arctic Sea Ice is once again GROWING, with current 2020 levels exceeding 8 out of the previous 10 years.

MA Climate Official Says 60% of State Emissions Come from Average People: ‘We Have to Break Your Will’

David Ismay, the undersecretary for climate change under Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker’s (R) administration, explained during a Vermont Climate Council meeting last month the majority of the Bay State’s emissions come from average people and there is “no bad guy left … to point the finger at, to turn the screws on, and you know, to break their will.” Rather, he told his fellow climate advocates, “We have to break your will,” a remark he admitted would not bode well publicly.

“You know one thing we found through our analysis is that 60 percent of our emissions come from, as I have been starting to say, you and me — except you guys are in Vermont,” he told the climate advocates at the January 25 meeting.

“60 percent of our emissions come from residential heating and passenger vehicles,” he said, repeating the percentage and emphasizing the majority of emissions that need to be reduced come from average people.

Bill Gates predicts next two disasters facing mankind - climate change and bio-terrorism

The Microsoft co-founder famously warned the world in 2015 of the likelihood of a new pandemic caused by a respiratory virus, like the coronavirus. In a talk organised by TED media and titled 'The next outbreak? We're not ready', Mr Gates stressed that it would be the emergence of a new virus and not war that would wipe out millions of human beings. He said: "If anything kills over 10 million people in the next few decades, it’s likely to be a highly infectious virus rather than a war.

“Not missiles, but microbes."

Now, in an interview with Derek Muller, host of the YouTube channel "Veritasium", the software entrepreneur outlined what he believed to be the next deadly threats facing humankind.

"One is climate change. Every year that would be a death toll even greater than we have had in this pandemic," Mr Gates said.

He then went on to name the second, even more terrifying danger lurking out there, as bio-terrorism.

The ‘battery fairy’ and other delusions in the demand to replace gasoline powered vehicles with electric cars and trucks

I continue to be amazed that serious people think that gasoline powered vehicles can be completely replaced by electric vehicles in a decade-and-a-half, and that this would be a good thing, even if possible. Under threat of government action, however, the world’s major auto manufacturers are falling in line boosting production of plug-in models, and upstart Tesla Motors is now the world’s most valuable auto manufacture, based on the value of its capital stock issued and in the public’s hands. Mary T. Barra, CEO of General Motors, has pledged to sell only zero emission vehicles by 2035. That would meet the deadline imposed by California Governor Gavin Newsom, who signed an executive order banning the sale of internal combustion vehicles in the nation’s largest car market by 2035.

Prince Charles ‘full of admiration’ for Joe Biden over US President’s top priority

Last week, the Prince of Wales sent Mr Biden a letter to congratulate him for his inauguration and addressing the fight against climate change. The new US President re-joined the Paris Climate Agreement, the international treaty that aims to tackle environmental issues.

He did so within hours of his swearing in ceremony after former President Donald Trump withdrew from the accord claiming the agreement was not created to protect the environment but to “kill” the American economy.

A royal source told the Mirror Prince Charles was “encouraged” by Mr Biden’s decision to re-enter the agreement and is said to be “full of admiration” for the US President.

They said: “The Prince was hugely encouraged that one of the very first acts the new President undertook was to reinstate the United States to the Paris Climate Agreement.

“The two men share the same indisputable view, that the global climate crisis is the biggest threat to humankind and needs to be dealt with utter urgency.

Bill Gates Has a New $1bn Yacht That Shows He Is Morally Superior to You Because It’s Hydrogen-Powered

For an environmentally conscious billionaire, what better way to combine luxury with your green credentials?

Bill Gates has commissioned the world’s first hydrogen-powered superyacht – believed to cost $860 million, giving him bragging rights over other ultra-rich seafarers.

The Sunday Telegraph can reveal the retired 64-year-old is behind the construction of the cutting-edge cruiser by Dutch superyacht specialist Feadship.

The custom build is based on blueprints for the 372ft (113 metre) vessel Aqua publicised at the Monaco Yacht Show last year by Dutch marine architects Sinot. It said the plans took “inspiration from the lifestyle of a discerning, forward-looking owner”.

Gates, who co-founded Microsoft and is the world’s second-richest person, is a regular superyacht holidaymaker but has not owned one, preferring to rent for summer trips around the Mediterranean.

Europe's Unforeseen Renewables Problem

Earlier this month, something happened in Europe.

It didn’t get as much media attention as the EU’s massive funding plans for its energy transition, but it was arguably as important, if not more.

A fault occurred at a substation in Croatia and caused an overload in parts of the grid, which spread beyond the country’s borders. This created a domino effect that caused a blackout and prompted electricity supply reductions as far as France and Italy. The problem was dealt with, but it’s only a matter of time before more problems like this occur—the reason: the rise of renewables in the energy mix.

Bloomberg reported on the incident citing several sources from Europe’s utility sector. While no one would directly blame the blackout and the increased risk of more blackouts on renewables, it is evident that Europe’s change in the energy mix is raising this risk.

NZ Climate Change report: What's the future of gas?

Small businesses like restaurants and cafes could be impacted after the Climate Change Commission released its first report, with a raft of targets proposed to cut New Zealand's emissions.

The commission has found the government needs to do more to meet its obligations under the Paris Agreement.

And its advice means big changes for New Zealand's small businesses.

The sear of a steak is a sound that's here to stay, but how you cook that piece of porterhouse, scotch or eye fillet could be about to change.

The Climate Change Commission, in its draft plan for cutting the country's emissions, has advised that it is time to cut gas.

Its plan suggests no new natural gas connections to the network or bottled LPG after 2025.

By 2050, the commission says existing natural gas in buildings should be phased out.

Bright Green Impossibilities

After reading some information at Friends of Science, I got to thinking about how impossible it will be for us to do what so many people are demanding that we do. This is to go to zero CO2 emissions by 2050 by getting off of fossil fuels.

So let’s take a look at the size of the problem. People generally have little idea just how much energy we get from fossil fuels. Figure 1 shows the global annual total and fossil energy consumption from 1880 to 2019, and extensions of both trends to the year 2050. I note that my rough estimate of 2050 total annual energy consumption (241 petawatt-hrs/year) is quite close to the World Energy Council’s business-as-usual 2050 estimate of 244 PWhr/yr.

Delingpole: Biden’s Green New Deal Is an ‘Impossible Cluster****’

President Joe Biden’s Green New Deal is an ‘impossible clusterf***.’ You probably knew this already but below are the raw details.

If the world is to wean itself off fossil fuels and go “carbon neutral” by 2050, here is what might possibly need to be done:

To summarize: to get the world to zero emissions by 2050, our options are to build, commission, and bring on-line either:

• One 2.1 gigawatt (GW, 109 watts) nuclear power plant each and every day until 2050, OR

• 3,000 two-megawatt (MW, 106 watts) wind turbines each and every day until 2050 plus a 2.1 GW nuclear power plant every day and a half until 2050, assuming there’s not one turbine failure for any reason, OR

• 96 square miles (250 square kilometres) of solar panels each and every day until 2050 plus a 2.1 GW nuclear power plant every day and a half until 2050, assuming not one of the panels fails or is destroyed by hail or wind.

Davos: Green transition is '$50-trillion investment opportunity'

The investment opportunity presented by the transition to a green global economy has been a key topic on the agenda at the 2021 World Economic Forum.

The weeklong summit — held online this year due to the global coronavirus outbreak — devoted over a day's worth of discussions to issues surrounding climate change, including how to restructure an economy based around the consumption of carbon-producing fossil fuels.

Over several panels, both politicians and business leaders highlighted the economic potential of the green transition. The real challenge, they said, will be getting investments where they are needed most.

From shareholder to stakeholder
The transition toward an environmentally stable global economy represents a $50 trillion (€41 trillion) investment opportunity, said Bill Winters, Group CEO of the UK-based Standard Chartered Bank, speaking on a panel about how to finance the transition to a global society free of carbon emissions.

Kerry was asked about the United Nation’s COP26 conference in Glasgow, Scotland, scheduled for November.

“Glasgow will be extremely important,” Kerry said. “In fact, I would say that in my judgment, it is the last best chance the world has to come together in order to do the things we need to do to avoid the worst consequences of the climate crisis.”

“Three years ago, we were told we have 12 years to avoid those consequences,” Kerry said. “Three of those years were lost because we had Donald Trump, who didn’t believe in any of it. And now we have nine years left to try to do what science is telling us we need to do.”

‘Failure not an option’, US climate envoy Kerry says, as he pushes to phase out coal FIVE times faster

America’s new climate envoy John Kerry has called for countries to phase out coal five times faster than they have been, and to speed up the transfer to renewable energy in order to hit net zero global carbon emissions by 2050.

After officially taking up his role on Wednesday, Kerry posted on Twitter to express his intention to get to work ahead of the COP26 Climate Change Summit in Glasgow, Scotland, later this year.

Speaking at an online event on Thursday, Kerry outlined some key climate change issues and concerns for meeting existing emissions targets, which he said will require the phasing out of coal at a faster rate and the rapid speeding up of the transfer to renewable sources of energy. Raising the stakes for a new collective international agreement, Kerry declared that “failure at the COP in Glasgow is not an option” if the world is to successfully achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2050, as previously planned.

WhatsApp growth slumps as rivals Signal, Telegram rise

OAKLAND, Calif. -- Encrypted messaging apps Signal and Telegram are seeing huge upticks in downloads from Apple and Google’s app stores. Facebook-owned WhatsApp, by contrast, is seeing its growth decline following a fiasco that forced the company to clarify a privacy update it had sent to users.

Mobile app analytics firm Sensor Tower said Wednesday that Signal saw 17.8 million app downloads on Apple and Google during the week of Jan. 5 to Jan. 12. That’s a 61-fold increase from just 285,000 the previous week. Telegram, an already-popular messaging app for people around the world, saw 15.7 million downloads in the Jan. 5 to Jan. 12 period, roughly twice the 7.6 million downloads it saw the previous week.

WhatsApp, meanwhile, saw downloads shrink to 10.6 million, down from 12.7 million the week before.

Imminent sudden stratospheric warming to occur, bringing increased risk of snow over coming weeks

A new study led by researchers at the Universities of Bristol, Exeter, and Bath helps to shed light on the winter weather we may soon have in store following a dramatic meteorological event currently unfolding high above the North Pole.

Weather forecasting models are predicting with increasing confidence that a sudden stratospheric warming (SSW) event will take place today, 5 January 2021.

The stratosphere is the layer of the atmosphere from around 10-50km above the earth's surface. SSW events are some of the most extreme of atmospheric phenomena and can see polar stratospheric temperature increase by up to 50°C over the course of a few days. Such events can bring very cold weather, which often result in snowstorms.

Sacrificing freedom for the environment? German MP suggests restrictions ‘similar’ to Covid-19 lockdowns to fight climate change

Humanity should sacrifice “personal freedom” just as many nations did during the Covid-19 pandemic in order to successfully fight climate change, a German MP has said, adding that there will “never” be a vaccine against CO2.

Germany had barely started its coronavirus vaccination campaign when a Social Democratic MP, Karl Lauterbach, warned that his compatriots need to brace themselves for yet another challenge: global warming.

“We need measures to deal with climate change that are similar to the restrictions on personal freedom [imposed] to combat the pandemic,” the professor of health economics and epidemiology at the University of Cologne wrote in a guest piece for Die Welt newspaper. He added that he hoped climate change issues would play “a dominant role” during the upcoming election campaign ahead of the federal ballot scheduled for September 2021.

2020's parting shot: Huge coast-to-coast storm will blanket the Midwest with two-feet of snow before blasting the Northeast with rain and wind on New Year's Eve and bring chilly temperatures to Florida 

A major winter storm is expected to sweep across the US in the final days of the year, bringing with it heavy snow, high winds and thunderstorms, potentially covering the East Coast with snow and rain on New Year's Eve.

The storm system is predicted to hit the US in two distinct low pressure systems, reported.

The first low pressure system is expected to extend from Southern California to the Plains and Midwest in the first half of this week.

Refugees freezing at burnt-out camp in Bosnia after heavy snowfall

Hundreds of refugees, including women and children, have been left without shelter in freezing conditions Bosnia-Herzegovina, days after a fire destroyed their already squalid camp.

More than a thousand refugees, trying to reach Western Europe, were stranded in burnt-out tents in the Lipa camp in northwest Bosnia on Saturday as heavy snow fell and winter temperatures suddenly dropped.

Earlier this week, a fire destroyed four large tents at the camp, and left refugees with no facilities or heat.

Bosnian authorities have so far failed to find new accommodations for the refugees.

Siberia braces for close to record-breaking cold over New Year, with temperatures predicted to hit freezing -50 degrees

Russia’s Hydrometeorological Center has forecast that Western and Central Siberia will see temperatures as low as -50 celsius before the end of the year – around 20 degrees lower than the typical December cold.

Earlier this year, in the height of summer, the highest-ever temperature seen above the Artic Circle was recorded, with the small town of Verkhoyansk seeing the mercury reach as high as +38.

“Extremely cold weather in Siberia has not happened for a long time,” explained Roman Vilfand, the scientific director of the Hydrometeorological Center, noting that the upcoming freeze will come close to the all-time record. “The temperature is 20 to 24 degrees below normal. For example, in the center of the Krasnoyarsk Region, it will reach -50 degrees.”

With some parts of the US 'feeling like the North Pole,' here's who might get a white Christmas this year

After a mild, soggy Christmas Eve across a large portion of the eastern U.S., much colder weather is in store for Christmas Day.

As the cold air rushes in later today and overnight, it will be accompanied by snow in a few areas, delivering a white Christmas morning for some folks.

Snow should be heaviest around the eastern Great Lakes and into portions of the Ohio Valley and the central Appalachians, where 4 to 8 inches is likely, the National Weather Service said.

Snow is even expected as far south as northern Georgia. Atlanta could see a few flurries on Christmas Day, but no accumulation is forecast.

Blizzard conditions hit Midwest as powerful winter storm threatens East Coast, U.S.

A powerful winter storm brought blizzard conditions to the U.S. Midwest on Wednesday, December 23, 2020, and is set to threaten much of the East Coast on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, December 24 and 25. Heavy rains and the existing melting snow from last week's storm pose a flooding risk to mid-Atlantic and New England, while severe thunderstorms and tornadoes are possible in the eastern Carolinas and southeast Virginia, according to the National Weather Service (NWS).

Blizzard warnings were in force across much of the Upper Midwest on Wednesday night, with winds over 105 km/h (65 mph) reported in parts of the Dakotas, impacting holiday travelers as road conditions were rough in some areas.

Winter storm warnings were also in place for Minnesota's Twin Cities, with near white-out conditions expected.

Modern Iceland’s Climate Is Colder With More Ice Than Any Other Time In The Last 8000 Years Except The 1800s

A wealth of new research in glacier and sea ice extent show modern Iceland is 2-4°C colder than all of the last 8000 years except for a slightly colder late 19th century. Even the 1700s were warmer with less ice than today in and around Iceland.

A new study (Geirsdóttir et al., 2020) now affirms peak Holocene warmth at least “?3–4 °C above modern in Iceland” prevailed throughout much of the last 8000 years. Data from tree growth, glacier-induced soil erosion, algae productivity, sea ice biomarker proxies (IP25), and other climate indices affirm these conclusions.

Harning et al., 2020 report an overall 7°C Holocene cooling trend In Iceland’s surrounding sea surface temperatures (SST).

“In terms of foraminifera-reconstructed SST there is an overall trend of cooling throughout the last 8 ka from ~10 °C to ~3 °C.”

Storm dumps up to 13 inches of snow on RI

A massive winter storm rolled into Southern New England Wednesday night, dropped more than a foot of snow on parts of Rhode Island and set at least one snowfall record before winding down Thursday afternoon.

The storm had dumped 13 inches on Burrillville as of 2:25 p.m.; 12 inches on Cranston as of 12:12 p.m. and 11.5 inches on North Providence as of 1:14 p.m., according to unofficial reports to the National Weather Service.

T.F. Green Airport, where measurements are taken for Providence, had 7.3 inches as of 1 p.m., building on a new record for the date. The previous record for Dec. 17 was 4 inches, set in 1961.

Monstrous snowstorm turns fatal, buries roadways throughout Northeast

The monstrous nor’easter that roared up the Eastern Seaboard Wednesday into Thursday has resulted in eye-popping snowfall totals, a slew of broken records not to mention mayhem on roadways and at least three fatalities. AccuWeather meteorologists warned the storm was going to be one of the biggest in several years, and it certainly was that and more in many places as snowfall totals in excess of 40 inches were reported in parts of New York, Pennsylvania and Vermont.

"We're working with a dustpan at the moment to get into one of these cars to find our shovel," Binghamton University student Mike Pollichino told AccuWeather National Reporter Bill Wadell. "The shovel's in our car. We didn't think this out too well," Pollichino added.

France's Macron Aims to Add Climate Change Goals to Constitution via Referendum

On Friday, the European Union leaders agreed on so-called Green Deal, proposed by the president of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, one year ago. The deal implies the reduction of the greenhouse gases produced within the bloc to between 40% and 55% of their 1990 levels by 2030.

French President Emmanuel Macron has announced a referendum on the ammendments to the country's Constitution, adding the fight against climate change and the necessity to preserve the environment into it, the Associated Press reported on Monday.

According to the report, at a meeting with climate activists (members of a Citizen's Convention on Climate), Macron said that the referendum proposal would need to be approved by both chambers of the French parliament, the Senate and the National Assembly.

One Little Problem With The "All-Electric" Auto Fleet: What Do We Do With All The "Waste" Gasoline?

Regardless of what happens with vaccines and Covid-19, debt and energy--inextricably bound as debt funds consumption-- will destabilize the global economy in a self-reinforcing feedback.

Back in the early days of the oil industry (1880s and 1890s), the product that the industry could sell at a profit was kerosene for lighting and heating. Since there was no automobile industry yet, gasoline was a waste product that was dumped into streams.

Why couldn't the refiners produce only kerosene? Why did they end up with "worthless" gasoline?

The answer is a barrel of oil produces a variety of products. While there is some "wiggle room" to produce more diesel and less gasoline, etc., it isn't possible to turn a barrel of oil into only one product.

Biggest snowstorm in years targets Northeast

It's been nearly five years since New York City has seen more than a foot of snow in one storm, when Central Park recorded its biggest snowstorm on record with 27.5 inches in January 2016. That streak may come to an end by the middle of this week, with the New York metro area in — or near — the bullseye for more than a foot of snow.

And it won't be just New York. Much of the densely populated parts of the Northeast stand to see a walloping of heavy snow as a major nor'easter takes aim. Some cities may pick up more than a half a season's worth of snow in 24 hours.

Real-World Outdoor Experiment Destroys Global Warming Narrative: As CO2 Naturally Rises From 0.1% To 75%, Surface Temperatures Drop 10°C

At an outdoor test site in Italy CO2 concentrations vacillating between 1,000 and 750,000 ppm have no more or less an effect on local temperatures than a nearby site with stable, ambient (<400 ppm) CO2 concentrations.

Mofette fields are “natural carbon dioxide springs” that allow us to observe the effect that a 100% (1,000,000 ppm) CO2 concentration has on ecosystems, temperatures…even spiders (Balkenhol et al., 2016).

Contrary to climate alarmism and media coverage, reef islands are GROWING despite rising sea, says new study

Against all odds, low-lying reef islands actually appear to be growing in some parts of the world, despite rising sea levels, increasing their footprint and defying doomsday predictions.

Geomorphologist Murray Ford from the University of Auckland in New Zealand led a team of researchers who examined Jeh Island, one of the 56 islands that make up the Ailinglaplap Atoll in the Marshall Islands, itself one of the most endangered nations on Earth.

Ford and his team pored over aerial and satellite imagery of the island from above and made the startling discovery that not only has Jeh increased in total land area by 13 percent since 1943, it may actually have once been four separate islands which have now morphed together due to net land-mass gains.

Flow of hot rocks rising from the Earth's core beneath central Greenland is melting the ice from below and contributing to sea-level rise, study finds

Melting of ice in central Greenland is being accelerated by the heat of molten rocks rising from the core–mantle boundary, adding to sea-level rise, a study has found.

Researchers from Japan mapped out the extent and branches of the so-called 'Greenland plume' — the rising flow of molten rock ascending beneath the island.

Geothermal activity is abundant in the North Atlantic region. Iceland and the Norwegian island of Jan Mayen have active volcanoes with their own mantle plumes.

Double bomb cyclone slams Alaska – Bombogenesis explodes in New England – Explosive cyclogenesis buries Alps in meters of snow

It’s not even winter and we are experiencing extreme stormy blizzards and cyclonic depressions in most parts of the world. It’s as if we had entered the ‘geologic timescale’ of weather warfare.

Now, do you feel it? Do you feel how they try to control the weather? Here the latest examples of weather modification! Over the weekend, two weather bombs blasted Alaska (a double bombogenesis!) and New England, while a third vicious blizzard is currently dropping meters of snow on the Alps across Europe.

And I forecast this insane extreme weather is going to rage out-of-control over the next few years… But now let’s discuss what happened on both US coasts and in the European Alps.

Major winter storm buries parts of Alps under more than 3 m (10 feet) of snow, Europe

A major winter storm that started affecting parts of Europe on Friday, December 4, 2020, has dumped more than 3 m (9.8 feet) of snow in parts of Italy and Austria by the end of December 6 and more than 770 mm (30 inches) of rain in the town of Barcis in northern Italy. The snow is still falling, with up to 80 cm (2.6 feet) more expected in the Dolomites, Italy, and Carinthia and Osttirol, Austria on Tuesday, December 8. Before the event is over, some parts of the Alps might end up under more than 5 m (16.4 feet) of snow.

The general pattern over the North Atlantic and Europe has changed as we entered the much more dynamic weather lately, Marko Korosec of the Severe Weather Europe said.

"A very deep upper trough/low has emerged into southwestern Europe while a persistent upper-level ridge is placed across western Russia and eastern Europe," Korosec explained.

Historic hailstorm hits Beirut, Lebanon

A massive hailstorm accompanied by exceptionally heavy rain and drastic temperature drop hit Lebanon's capital Beirut on December 5, 2020, causing massive floods and traffic chaos. The last time Beirut witnessed a similar event was back in 1968.

The hailstorm lasted about 1 hour and was described by meteorologists as historic.

"This supercell affected only the coastal area around Beirut and its suburbs. A supercell effect is always local. Weather stations in Beirut recorded 50 mm [1.96 inches] of rainfall in a lapse of 25 minutes," Elias Saadeh, founder of Lebanon Weather Forecast, told Al Arabiya English.

"This quantity is considered enormous since it is equivalent to pouring 50 liters of water in each square meter [13 gallons per 10 feet2] in 25 minutes. Moreover, this supercell caused a drastic drop in temperature from 21 to 13.5 °C [69.8 - 55.4 °F] in a couple of minutes," Saadeh said.

UN Climate Agency Slapped With Corruption Allegations 

The Financial Times recently acquired a draft report by the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) of audit and investigations, outlining how "fraud and corruption" have been linked to the multibillion-dollar Global Environment Facility (GEF).

FT examined the draft report which described "financial misstatements" that were discovered across UNDP's portfolio of GEF-funded projects around the world.

"Issues identified by the audit could seriously compromise the achievement of the objectives of the audited entity," the report said.

GEF was set up in the early 1990s with the World Bank to combat climate change. Its main objectives have been to help fight environmental challenges such as deforestation, species preservation, and pollution control. In recent years, GEF has become an independent organization with more than $21 billion dispersed in 170 countries, including $7 billion in projects managed by UNDP.
