North America sets records from Canada to Texas extreme cold and heavy early snowfall.  The Grand Solar Minimum has impacted our weather throughout 2019.  The Electrovers web site tracks the latest extreme weather events around the world. The map of today's record breaking cities is shown on this web page.  

The Danish Polar Portal provides much information on the Arctic regions with daily updates on the status of Greenland's snow and ice, the polar ice thickness, and many other scientific analyses of tremendous value to understanding climate variability. 

 New Zealand experiences Fourth Coldest September this Century

This appears related to the Grand Solar Minimum's reduced magnetosphere.  

New Zealand’s average temperature last month –for the country as a whole– was below the 1981-2010 September avg., Niwa has said in its Monthly Climate Summary.

An unusual warming of the atmosphere high above Antarctica –called a Sudden Stratospheric Warming event (SSW)– assisted in making last month the fourth coldest September in New Zealand this century.

There have only ever been two SSWs recorded in the Southern Hemisphere, previous to this years — one in September 2002 (major) and another in September 2010 (minor).

The 2002 SSW event resulted in New Zealand experiencing a significant cold outbreak in October while the 2010 event was associated with record rainfall during September.

Scientists recognize that the sun is the primary source of energy in the Earth-atmosphere system.  Solar cycles have been tracked directly and indirectly over the past millena - thousands and hundreds of thousands of years as noted in many lectures linked on this web site.  Today, we are moving into a critical solar minimum with profound impacts on our society.  This Grand Solar Minimum (GSM) is not a human controlled phenomenon, rather an astronomical cycle.  The following GSM link provides updates to the world weather extremes caused by the GSM:

Sea level is an interesting and complex variable that impacts millions of people around the world.  Dr Jennifer Marohasy discussed this at the Climate Change Concern Forum in Maroochydore, Australia.  She has been studying sea levels for over 30 years and has an interesting presentation that describes impacts on the Great Barrier Reef.  see:  https://youtu.be/dVlu-7_FxD8 You'll see there are many natural causes for sea level variations from lunar gravitational pull and 18-year orbital cycles to cyclones and extreme phase syncing of these phenomena that amplify tidal surges.

Our winter in Colorado was remarkably wet and cool with many strong Pacific storms dumping heavy wet snows.

We set many records in March and had over 1000 avalanches.  Snow continued into late June with some storms dumping 3-4 inches at our home, all of which quickly melted.  The Grand Solar Minimum led to a weakening of the sun's megnitosphere which permitted more cosmic rays to heat the stratosphere.  This warming caused several strong tropospheric polar vortices to form and maintain a deep polar flow into the Eastern US setting many new cold records from Minnesota to Florida.

The jet stream remained very strong through the winter with a blocking flow over western North America, Western Europe and a strong summer jet in the southern hemisphere with deep snows predicted in the Andes (1-4 meters).  The ECMWF model also predicted over 7 meters in parts of Alaska and British Columbia near Mount Logan in two 10-day forecasts.

Astronomers are warning about a little ice age coming within 10 years.  We'll be watching this carefully.

Yesterday, 8 October 2018, the IPCC provided an alarmist media proclamation that the world must act immediately to reduce CO2 emissions or we will have severe climatic consequences of warming and sea level rise.  The IPCC again quoted that 97% of scientists confirmed this human caused climate change, and nearly all scientific publications confirm this critical situation due to anthropogenic causes.  Unfortunately this is a biased one-sided unbalanced perspective of True science.  In the links below I will provide a more rational, physically honest set of view points that the climate alarmists proclaim are heretics, untrue, unpublished works.

The Solar Cycle has been studied for centuries and the following link provides a succinct summary of this critical source of,  or lack of energy.  The Sun is going to sleep -  last Grand Solar Minimum 400 years ago according to astrophysicist Peter Temple:

Ice Age comming?  Glacialogists show, in a PBS program, some fascinating new evidence from ice core studies regarding a "cold climate in the very near future".  Deep ocean evidence also shows that we are heading for another ice age according to Lamont Observatory's vast number of sea bottom cores.   John Casey clarifies the current dogma of global warming vs climate change warming over the past 200 years.  Now scientists are finding significant stable temperatures that are transitioning to cooling and glacier expansions.  I watch the ECMWF global forecasts every day looking at 10-day snow forecasts, temperatures, and sea surface waves that mark the extent of polar ice.  This past 2018 Antarctic winter had record breaking cold temperatures down to -98ºC shattering the previous Vostok -89º world record.  NASA observed the -98º, I saw half a dozen reports below -92 to -97ºC.  Is this an indicator of the new solar minimum's approach?

Climate Scientist Murry Salby Returns! - Presents NEW SCIENCE

Author of the seminal book on climate; "Physics of the Atmosphere & Climate" Professor Murry Salby is without doubt one of the best Climate Scientists on the planet. In a lecture in London on the 17th March, 2015, he reveals new work which shows that; 1) The climate sensitivity is below 0.2c - confirmed by 3 independent methods. 2) Most of the observed increase in atmospheric CO2 is not anthropogenic. 3) CO2 movements and concentrations are largely determined by nature, not man; consequently, any cuts we make to our CO2 emissions will not have the desired effect, and are a costly waste of time. 4) CO2, whether man-made or not, does not 'drive' the climate system. Professor Murry Salby has been vilified by enviro-alarmists and the left for his scientific results. Salby was disenfranchised and exiled from academia in Australia for daring to speak such “sacrilege.” In a case similar to many others we have seen in Australia, and across the west, he was the subject of University hate and was finally sacked while he was on a lecture tour in Europe; his employer, Macquarie University of NSW, sacking him from his position as Professor of Climate Science. The University board cancelled his return ticket home, stranding him in Paris. All Salby's work was confiscated and has still not been returned to him. The pursuit of genuine Science in the field of climate - and free speech are Dead in most Western Universities: Other cases where top scientists were vilified and sacked or demoted by a University for the results of their science or for their views on the climate include; Bob Carter, Murry Salby Lennart Bengtsson, David Legates, George Taylor, Caleb Rossiter, Bjorn Lomborg, Henk Tennekes, Askel Winn-Nielsen, Alfonso Sutera, Anonio Speranza and scores of others.

Germany's Renewable's Disaster - Prof Fritz Vahrenholt

Professor Fritz Vahrenholt of Hamburg University speaks about the 'clean' energy revolution going on in Germany. The average German family is paying US$400 per year more for their energy, and the cost of the move to 50% wind and solar power has cost the country over US$30 billion. Meanwhile, Germany's emissions are going up, and have been for several years, while the USA's emissions continue to fall. If the contained emissions in the wind farms and solar panels are included, no savings in CO2 emissions are made. The main effect of the move to renewable energy, appears to have been a large transfer of wealth from the poor to the rich in Germany.

Prof Vahrenholt wrote the excellent book "The Neglected Sun" along with co-author Prof Luning. Highly recommended read!

A balanced debate on climate change….
Published on Jul 22, 2018

Charleston, West Virginia, June 12, 2018. Dr. Michael Mann, Dr. David Titley, Dr. Patrick Moore and Dr. Judith Curry met in to discuss climate change.

They were asked two questions: -

 To what extent is the use of fossil fuels affecting climate change? -

What can and should be done to offset those effects?

Michael Mann’s Activist perspective of IPCC support, we must double the rate of sea level rise by 2x…  letter to the editor of Wall St Journal denial of “most basic facts”… unprecedented droughts lead to national security problems, wild fires…. perpetual fires… coastal damage inflicted by climate change, adapt?  No further fossil fuel use…

Dr. Judith Curry substantial disagreement, no unified theory fo climate predictability… must look at the whole elephant, not just the tusk.  IPCC consensus no longer supported due to manufactured political concensus.  

Dr. Moore, IPCC does not say that hurricanes and tornadoes are increasing in Climate change, but the media does.."This has become some kind of religion, even the Pope is into it."

Admiral Titley believes national security is at risk for many factors from sea level rise to 500 million displaced people.
