The Hill Bashes “Climate Fearmongering”
“Each scorching summer is touted as further evidence of an impending climate catastrophe with little room for nuance or objective analysis. Lost in the hyperbole is the inconvenient truth that cold weather actually poses a far greater threat to human life than heat waves do.”
The above is a paragraph lifted from a recent The Hill article, which was penned by Vijay Jayaraj who holds master’s degree in environmental sciences from the University of East Anglia.
“Contrary to popular media efforts to make a bogeyman out of warmth,” Jayaraj continues, “humans possess physiological protections and have made behavioral adaptations that enable them to withstand and even thrive in warm weather … In contrast, cold weather presents a more insidious and often overlooked threat … Cold is a much bigger killer than heat all over the world … According to scientific studies, extreme temperature accounts for 6.5 percent of all deaths in India [the author’s home country]. Of those deaths, 88 percent are caused by cold weather and only 12 percent by hot weather.”
The Hill has adopted a seismic shift in tone, particularly for a publication considered to be ‘left-leaning’ (whatever that really means–both left and right play us like a fiddle). Uncoincidentally, this shift towards logic is occurring in line with the recently expressed views of the newly anointed head of the IPCC, Jim Skea.
“The world won’t end if it warms by more than 1.5 degrees,” Skea said in an interview, and a rise above and beyond that air-plucked threshold “would not constitute an existential threat to humanity”–a bombshell to the orange paint-tossers among us, I’m sure.
The Hill continues: “Despite the overwhelming evidence of cold weather’s greater dangers, these often go unnoticed. Selective media coverage tends to focus more on heat than cold, perpetuating a distorted understanding of climate-related risks and hindering public discourse on comprehensive strategies to mitigate the dangers of frigid weather.
“In addition, the media ignore or distort historical long-term trends that show the warmth of our current climate, in spite of climate change, is neither unusual nor unprecedented. Data from the federal Global Change Research Program’s Climate Science Special Report show that heat spells cover fewer days per year and are less intense in the U.S. in the last 10 years than they were 90 years ago. No, we’re not burning up all of a sudden. There is hot weather, and it is nothing new.”
Vijay Jayaraj concludes: “The media’s choice to misinform people about both historical data and the relative risks of heat and cold reveals a motive to promote climate fear.”
The MSM is indeed on warm-mongering overdrive. Take Europe this summer. Barring a pocket of heat to the south, the continent, overall, has held anomalously-cold all July, with low temperature records broken and heavy snowfall hitting the Alps.
This cooling trend is now intensifying into August:
Above is the reality, yet below is the baseless drivel spewed by activist-journalists such as Jack Kessler of the Evening Standard:
Go send Kessler your views on Twitter (he’s already blocked me) — a true journalist will appreciate corrections.
Sunspot AR3380 has been flaring every 3 hours-or-so:
Extreme ultraviolet flashes have been ionizing the top of Earth’s atmosphere, causing a series of shortwave radio blackouts around all longitudes of our planet. Likewise, ham radio operators may have noticed frequent loss of signal and other propagation effects at frequencies below 15 MHz.
The explosions have also hurled faint Coronal Mass Ejections (CMEs) into space, ejections NOAA analysts are modeling to see if any are Earth-directed.

Russian Scientists Grow Watermelons In Antarctica
Scientists have successfully grown watermelons in Antarctica.
The agricultural feat was part of an experiment at Vostok Station, a year-round Russian research station located at the Pole of Cold which has registered record-low temperatures in recent months/years — as documented here.
Researchers from the Russian Antarctic Expedition of the Arctic and Antarctic Research Institute (AARI), alongside colleagues from the Agrophysical Research Institute and the Institute of Biomedical Problems of the Russian Academy of Sciences, constructed a setup, an ‘oasis’, where they could increase the air temperature and humidity.
They planted the seeds in a thin layer of soil substitute, and positioned special grow-lights above the crop. Due to there being no insects to pollinate the flowers, the researchers had to pollinate everything by hand. Their efforts were rewarded. 103 days after sowing, the researchers were greeted by eight “ripe and sweet fruits” growing across six different plants.
“Naturally, all polar explorers were glad to remember the taste of summer,” said Andrei Teplyakov, lead geophysicist of the AARI. “Even the observation of seedlings, growth and the appearance of fruits … [elicited] positive emotions.”
In a supposedly catastrophically warming world, why are scientists investing time and effort into growing food in -83.2C/-117.8F?
But these are Russian scientists — they never bought into the West’s cLiMaTe BrEaKdOwN finger-paintings.
The Russians, instead, have for decades warned that the next climatic epoch will be one of stark cooling.
As explained by eminent space scientist, Habibullo Abdussamatov (Dr. Sc. – Head of Space research laboratory of the Pulkovo Observatory, Saint Petersburg), “The Sun defines the climate, not carbon dioxide. The so-called ‘greenhouse effect’ will not avert the onset of the next deep temperature drop, the 19th in the last 7500 years, which without fail follows after natural warming.”
“We should fear a deep temperature drop — not catastrophic global warming,” asserts Dr. Abdussamatov. “Humanity must survive the serious economic, social, demographic and political consequences of a global temperature drop, which will directly affect the national interests of almost all countries and more than 80% of the population of the Earth.”
Armed with this knowledge, learning to grow watermelons in -100F makes a lot more sense.
Musk vs CCDH
And finally, the Center for Countering Digital Hate (CCDH), the ‘non-profit’ responsible for stripping Electroverse of its advertising, looks to be getting theirs.
Elon Musk’s “X”, no less, has filed a lawsuit against the pro-censorship group, which it has accused of “actively working to assert false and misleading claims encouraging advertisers to pause investment on the platform.”
You cannot bend the fabric of reality for very long, it will always snap back, and hard.
