AGW Party Switch Their Drought ‘Doom-Ladening’ From Western U.S. To Europe…
A recent article doing the MSM rounds –likely written before last week’s unseasonable rains and snows– is keen to draw focus on the drought threatening to envelope Southern Europe, particularly Spain.
“Southern Europe is bracing for a summer of ferocious drought,” reads the opening line of a totally unbiased Reuters article.
Spain garners most of the ink, simply because it, along with portions of Portugal/southern France, are the only European regions currently struggling with water levels: “The situation of drought is going to worsen this summer,” said Jorge Olcina, professor of geographic analysis at the University of Alicante, leaning on the obvious: summers are usually dry.
There’s little chance at this point of rainfall resolving the underlying drought, continues Reuters: “At this time of the year, the only thing we can have are punctual and local storms, which are not going to solve the rainfall deficit,” Olcina said.
This ‘Science Says’ attitude recalls the confident divinations of a snowless Alps.
The legacy media leapt on a dry winter across Europe’s higher elevations, using it to push their AGW agenda, only to be left with egg on their haughty little faces when spring delivered record dumpings of snow, totals that are persisting into late-May and clawing back the winter deficit–and then some.
With that in mind, look at what Spain has in store starting this week.
Despite professor Olcina’s agenda-driving claim that “at this time of year, the only thing we can have are punctual and local storms,” latest GFS runs foresee nation-spanning deluges on course to flood much of the Iberian Peninsula:
Also note the deluge forecast for the rest of Europe, too, and see that these rains are arriving in line with an anomalously cold polar air mass, meaning a portion of it will fall as yet more snow atop Europe’s peaks, including the Alps and Pyrenees.
Suffice it to say, Europe is not in drought, and is not expected to enter drought anytime soon.
The very best the establishment can muster is a stat claiming that 22% of the continent is under a ‘drought warning’. Spain, Portugal and parts of southern France are anomalously dry, absolutely they are; but as shown above, this is about to change, and dramatically so, as an out-of-season helping hand from Mother Nature delivers some equilibrium — as she always does.
In fact, we should expect the dominating MSM headlines to read along the line of: ‘climate change-induced floods ravage Europe’ as the calendar nears June, floods that are already gripping the likes of Italy this week (with further heavy rains on the way):
Our senses tell us one thing while The Narrative steadfastly sells us the opposite.
More frequent and severe drought in the Mediterranean region is in line with climate change predictions, continues the Reuters article: “In terms of the climate change signal, it very much fits with what we’re expecting,” said AGW puppet Hayley Fowler, Professor of Climate Change Impacts at Newcastle University.
Below is another shot of inundated Italy this week — a Mediterranean nation, last time I checked. Here too, the establishment is spreading baseless drought fears, claiming “desperate Italian farmers are planning to cut back on their planting acreage”…
“Severe drought in Southern Europe is particularly worrying, not only for the farmers there but also because this can push up already very high consumer prices if the EU production is significantly lower,” Commission spokesperson Miriam Garcia Ferrer said. This, for me, drives at the heart of all this: the use of scam crises as the excuse for intentional, economic-driven hardship.
To finish, these pair of AGW party shills (newsTALK reporters James Wilson and Jack Quann) need to get their story straight.
Fewer than two weeks separate these articles:

It’s not hard at all to be a climate scientist. One simply looks out of the window every morning to see what the weather currently is. Then he screams as loud as he can, “CLIMATE CHANGE!” That doesn’t take a university degree. Any fool can do it.
Terry, I will see you exclamation and add on, One must observe and use non repeatable data driven logic leaps to create unprovable theories and pass these papers around a room full of other scientists of like minded grant money driven greed and declare it peer reviewed.
Temperatures are falling dramatically over land since 2005. The USA alone has seen a drop of about -.7F since that time. Similar trends are observed over Antarctica, Australia, India and other locations. In fact, Antarctica has seen a far steeper drop than others. Do not focus on that chart showing the global average – that is contaminated by ocean warming (due to underwater volcanoes) prior to 2016 and second, the data has been whitewashed by NOAA many times. Looking at land masses alone, we can clearly see a cooling trend, according to the link below:
Speaking of that, Saranac Lake, NY, just dropped to 16F this morning, May 18th, 2023!

And while I agree, it’s hard to find a reliable global temperature dataset that hasn’t been ‘interfered’ with by NOAA/NASA.
The American Indians would be asked what the weather is and they would stick their hand out…hot = Sunny, wet = rainy, windblown = windy and so on…just like most farmers do every day for CENTURIES!!!
It’s the same principle as my weather forecasting stone hung on a bit of string:-
Shadow on ground=sunny
No shadow on ground=cloudy
Can’t see stone=foggy
Last year the Po River in Italy dried up, and many places in Europe and the UK suffered severe drought that, in some instances, revealed ancient pagan sites of worship. Then the rains came.
The take-away is that weather is cyclical, and that climate is in constant flux. We just had a WONDERFUL thunderstorm last night here in Phoenix (although it may have only been 2-5mm worth of rain, at best) but notably, it’s unusual to have rain this late into May. June is our driest month of the year, and around Independence Day, July 4th, is when the annual monsoons begin. After an awesome cooler-than-normal and wetter-than-normal winter (and now spring) if we’re able to enjoy more rain before the monsoon comes—and then have a good monsoon—we’ll be doing really well with banking water reserves for future use. The Mogollon Rim had >300% of annual snowfall for the winter, which has raised water levels on all the reservoirs NE of the Phoenix metro area to such a level that for weeks the Salt River (normally an ephemeral dry “river”) was running high and heavy.
What once was, will be again. That’s how weather and climate work.

Well, there are indeed increasing droughts in Germany, especially during spring (and in the eastern part of Germany). But this is strongly correlated with the increasing use of wind power for electricity generation (data analyzed of the previous 20 years). The wind farms extract a substantial part of the energy, and by this way water transport from sea to land is reduced. So we have indeed man made climatic change here in Germany. But the most adverse effects are not due to increasing CO2, but due to increasing use of “green” energy. So the AGW party is the main cause for increasing droughts here in Europe.
Best info (no rubbish) is the MARTIN ARMSTRONG SOCRATES BLOG. However i presume you already know this.
keep up the good work.
