2023, A Year Of Record Cold
People are quick to forget (if they ever know at all), and are blindly accepting of whatever narrative the establishment lays before them.
Case in point is global boiling. Many, many all-time low temperature records have fallen this year, they’ve just gone unreported, and so the dutiful masses, the paint tossing tossers among us haven’t been privy to the full picture.
Unelected agencies routinely label the situation a “code red for humanity”.
But the data say no cause for alarm, whether that be climate-related deaths, wildfire data, Great Barrier Reef coral cover, polar bear numbers , Arctic/Greenland ice, or record cold…
A low of –62.7C (-80.9F) was logged in Tongulakh, Siberia on Jan 18, breaking the area’s all-time record.
All-time record-setting cold was sweeping Western, Central and Southern Asia a the same time too, felling national all-time record cold temperatures in the likes of China, Pakistan and Japan:
On Feb 4, Halifax airport, Nova Scotia logged its coldest wind chill ever recorded: -43C (-45.4F) besting 1967’s -41C (-41.8F).
Also in February, Mount Washington, NH reported a wind-chill of -78C (-108F) — the coldest reading ever recorded in the United States, with ‘frostquakes’ reported by the NWS Caribou, Maine. Just like earthquakes, frostquakes generate tremors, thundering sensations. These are caused by sudden cracks in frozen soil or underground water when it’s very cold.
Feb freezes struck Boston, too, where the public school system was closed down. The mercury here bottomowed-out at -23C (-9.4F), shattering a record set more than a century ago (the 19C (-2F) set in Providence, Rhode Island in 1918). Record lows simultaneously swept the likes of Albany, Augusta, Rochester, and Worcester, along with many others
February outbreaks engulfed South America, too. Cities across Paraguay, for example, broke monthly low temperature records, as did at least 30 cities in Argentina.
The UK endured its coldest March temperature since 2010 when Kinbrace dropped to -15.2C (4.6F) on March 7.
More than 100 weather stations across Australia registered their coldest May minimum temperatures on record.
Finland’s lowest-ever June temperature was posted by Enontekiö Kilpisjärvi Saana, Lapland on June 1 — the –7.7C (45.9F).
Extreme cold arrived unusually-early to Antarctica this winter continuing the theme of the past few years. Temperatures plunged below -75C (103F) from the beginning of May, which is historically early.
Australia’s Barrier Reef Is Still Great
Like the now stonewalled scares of extinct polar bears and an ice-free Arctic, the Great Barrier Reef (GBR) has gone the same way. MSM-peddled doomsday predictions have once again been proven pitifully inaccurate (yet we still can’t question them).
The record-breaking growth reported in 2021-22 has been sustained in the latest annual period (to May 2023). The Australian Institute of Marine Science (AIMS) recently reported that regional average hard coral cover in 2022-2023 was similar to last year.
No bleaching, no cyclones hitting the reef, no crown-of thorns starfish attacks — an alarmists worth nightmare: no alarm.
And this isn’t me ripping from a position of hindsight, this was something the realists have been pointing out for years now.
Realists such as Dr. Peter Ridd, formerly of James Cook University (JCU) in Queensland, who lost his job for daring to wade against the AGW Party’s bought-and-paid-for consensus by succinctly explaining, with data, that fears of ‘global warming’ somehow ‘killing the reef’ are wholly unfounded and are based on junk models and ideologically-driven horseshit (to paraphrase).
In short, Dr. Ridd wrote an opinion piece in the Jan, 2018 issue of ‘Marine Pollution Bulletin’ which challenged the prevailing understanding of the state of the Great Barrier Reef. The essay drew attention to what Ridd argued was a “reproducibility crisis” and also to the validity of specific papers on the topic. Moreover, he recommended a new review body for “policy science”.
Following the piece, Dr. Ridd’s employers JCU took a number of disciplinary measures against him, and ultimately he was dismissed. It didn’t stop there, though. Oh no. Even to this day, Ridd’s character is routinely assassinated, his professional reputation tarnished, and his funds drained (via fighting this BS in court). And for what…? What great crime did he commit…? Well, in today’s world of controlling agendas and narrative-driving fraud, Dr. Peter Ridd’s crime was ‘speaking the truth’.
At the risk of writing the most redundant statement on the web: today’s scientific establishment has been corrupted, from funding to the peer-review process. Those scientists at the higher echelons, the ones effectively in control of a given field, are often nestled snugly within the pockets of the elites, those forces on-high with big agendas and a limitless bankroll to push them.
Frustratingly, there is no accountability; doubly-frustratingly, despite the clear and obvious reality, the same old bought-and-paid-for conclusions and EOTW projections continue to be parroted by ignorant activists that haven’t yet worked-out that they’ve been led down the garden path.
“I have been saying for some time that many of our science institutions have become totally untrustworthy,” said Peter Ridd in piece for the spectator.com.au. “By its willful abandonment of quantitative analysis, the AAS [Australian Academy of Science] has destroyed its reputation as a source of useful scientific advice.”
‘Winter Deaths’ Surge In Scotland
Cold should be cause for concern, more so than it is.
Low temperatures kill 10x more than high temperatures and –for whatever reason– cold-related deaths are increasing globally — a fact the agenda-forwarding Lancet recently did their best to distort:
The number of winter deaths in Stirling, Scotland reached their highest-ever level in 2022/23, according to new statistics.
The National Records of Scotland (NRS) collates the number of deaths recorded in the four months between December and March (any-reason deaths). In that four month period for 2022-23, there were 399 winter deaths, the highest number in available NRS data, with the next highest being the 387 deaths in 2020/21, during the height of the coronavirus pandemic.
Last winter was deadlier than the ‘COVID winter’, but nobody seems to care.
As expected, the highest recorded increases coming in the oldest two age groups.
Stirling is reflective of the broader picture in the data across Scotland, with the national total of 24,427 winter deaths in 2022/23 some 11% higher than the previous winters and the highest toll in 30 years.
“Today’s figures show that deaths in winter are at their highest level since 1989/90,” said Daniel Burns, Head of Vital Events Statistics at National Records of Scotland.
Winters claim more lives than summers.
Cold deaths far outstrip heat deaths wherever you look.
And they’re increasing, despite a nosedive in climate-related deaths.
Go figure, alarmists.
The story you’re so eagerly telling suffers a number of catastrophic plot holes.
