Mongolia’s Brutally Cold Winter Kills Livestock, Leaves 212,000 People In Need Of Aid
It was a historic, brutally cold winter across the rugged expanses of Mongolia — conditions that have spilled into spring.
An icy winter left herder families in Mongolia without livestock and facing severe food shortages, warns Save the Children.
Currently 13 of Mongolia’s 21 provinces are experiencing a ‘dzud’ — a natural phenomenon unique to Mongolia, where heavy snow and extreme cold result in insufficient grazing pastures for livestock. Between 1940 and 2015, official “dzud declarations” where made twice a decade. But in recent years, dzud’s have increased in frequency, with occurrences now happening annually.
Like the increasing ‘cold waves’ in India, the AGW Party doesn’t have an answer for this, only the boilerplate: “climate crisis.”
This year, temperatures below -40C (-40F) were an all-too regular occurrence, readings which resulted in the untimely deaths of hundreds of thousands of animals due to either starvation or freezing. This, in turn, has affected the livelihoods of some 200,000 Mongolian households who make an income from herding goats, sheep, cattle, horses, yaks and camels.
The desperate situation is exacerbated by the global establishment’s poverty inducing policies, which has seen inflation skyrocket.
As a result of the dzud, some 213,000 people, including 80,000 children, are now in need of humanitarian aid, according to Save the Children figures, including food, access to health facilities, and hygiene items.
According to the establishment narrative, and articles from the likes of Save the Children themselves, “Climate experts say the frequency and severity of dzuds is increasing and this can be attributed to the climate crisis … Temperatures in Mongolia are rising twice as fast as the global average, with temperatures warming over 2C between 1940 and 2015.”
Delgerbat, a herder in western Mongolia, recently had to take his son out of school to help him care for the family’s livestock.
“The climate is very different from when I was a child,” said Delgerbat. “The summers are too hot, the winters too cold and less grass and plants are grown. When I was young the snow would have melted by this time and it would already be spring, but now spring comes so late.”
Global warming once meant ever-rising global temperatures; it was simple to understand. Now, with real-world observations failing to play ball, the theory has shifted so as to be proven by every extreme weather event, even Mongolian dzudz extending long into spring, even increasing Indian ‘cold wave days’.
The theory is unchallengeable. It is considered heresy to even try.
Pakistan’s Frigid April
Many Asia nations endured a historically frigid winter of 2022-23, from NE Russia to Iran, from Kazakhstan to Japan.
January in Pakistan, for example, had an average temperature of 9.98C (50F) which is more that -2C below the multidecadal norm — a chill that has now extended through April with last month delivering an average of 24.28C (75.7F), 0.7C below normal.
January also saw Pakistan’s coldest-ever temperature, the -10C/-14F set at Nokkundi on Jan 14; but history has been made in many Asian nations this year, with new all-time low temperature benchmarks also falling in Siberia, China and Japan:
Heavy Snowfall Strands Flights In Peru
Heavy snowfall has delayed flights at Alejandro Velasco Astete International Airport in the Peruvian city of Cusco.
Peru’s Tourism Police (POLTUR) have said that flights have been delayed or cancelled due to safety issues, adding that some passengers even requested that flights be suspended after seeing the extreme conditions on the runway.
The accumulating snow is considered rare here, particularly at these lower elevations and at this time of year.
Cold Winter Reduces N.D. Mule Deer Numbers
Last year’s unprecedented blizzards and this past winter’s extreme cold has taken a toll on the mule deer population in North Dakota, reports bismarcktribune.com.
According to the official figures by the state Game and Fish Department’s annual spring survey, the mule deer population is down some 29% on last year’s numbers, and 5% below the long-term average (dating back to the 1950s).
Late-season blizzards back in April 2022 dumped feet of snow on much of North Dakota, and the accompanying cold proved record-breaking. As a result, deer numbers were struggling, but then came “one of the worst winters in recent memory,” continues the bismarcktribune.com article.
Mule deer had been rebounding since a string of bad winters from 2008-10 (solar minimum of cycle 23), but biologists have observed a stark downturn over the past few brutal winters (coinciding with the deep solar minimum of cycle 24).
Greenland Ice Core Data
Greenland ice core data dismantle all notions that today’s climatic changes are catastrophic, unprecedented or even all-that unusual.
The wolf-crying sheep among us –those paint-throwing, agenda-towing alarmists– are the true science deniers.
Backed by a multi-billion dollar propaganda campaign, these spineless actors feel safe within The Narrative, choosing it over historical data, logic and their own eyes. They point to doctored graphs, such as those composed by Mann, and have without question accepted that the IPCC and WEF, et al. have the final say on the topic–and worst still, have their best interests at heart.
On the topic of childlike naivety –of an inorganic and bred lack of wisdom and judgment– the establishment has firmly pulled the wool over the purblind’s eyes, and as with polar bear numbers, coral bleaching, and Arctic sea ice extent, Greenland ice core data has exited the mainstream discussion. You will not see MSM articles on the topic, it is barred from discussion, with Professor Jorgen Peder Steffensen, of the Niels Bohr Institute’s Ice, Climate and Geophysics department demonstrating why:
“We have had a global temperature increase in the 20th Century, yes … but probably an increase from the lowest point of the last 10,000 years … It is very hard to prove whether [this] temperature increase was man-made of natural variation. That is very hard because we made ourselves an extremely poor experiment, we started to observe meteorology at the coldest spot of the last 10,000 years.”
