Why is it Cooling So Fast?
Posted by Dr Sircus on October 31, 2014
We are being beaten by a one two punch. From one side we have the sun diminishing its radiance and on the other volcanoes have gone berserk these
past few years. And we have ‘official’ smoke signals going up from the ICC global warming crowd that it is not warming after all with no sorry and no admission of being wrong or lying. (Be sure to read the special note at the end about the new
official ICC statements, a new volcano blowing its stack since yesterday, and a spiritual note to global warming liars.)
Until recently, it has been the hard science of astrophysics that has been warning us that the sun has entered a phase of low activity,
which will drive cooler weather here on earth. The head of the Space Research section of the Russian Academy of Science, Professor Khabibullo Abdussamatov, in 2006 issued a press release, warning that the world should prepare for imminent global cooling. He
predicted that the global cooling would start in 2012 – 2015, and would likely peak around 2055.
"On the basis of our [solar emission] research, we developed a scenario
of a global cooling of the Earth’s climate by the middle of this century and the beginning of a regular 200-year-long cycle of the climate’s global warming at the start of the 22nd century," said Abdussamatov. He and his colleagues had concluded
that a period of global cooling similar to one seen in the late 17th century – when canals froze in the Netherlands and people had to leave their dwellings in Greenland – could start in 2012-2015 and reach its peak in 2055-2060.
did not calculate into their predictions these record breaking volcanic emissions into the atmosphere. Alone the sun was throwing us into cooling. Volcanic cooling is being added to the formula before our very eyes and only the blind at this point cannot see
what is coming.
Increasing volcanic eruptions have been spweing ash into the atmosphere over the last 14 years are partially responsible for the cooling of Earth (slowing down the effects
of global warming), a recent study published in Nature Geoscience suggests. Researchers attribute
this helping hand to just 17 of the eruptions from 1998 to 2012 that pumped sulfur dioxide into Earth’s upper atmosphere. The molecule formed liquid particles that reflected sunlight back to space rather than to the Earth’s surface, moderating
the larger-scale warming of the planet surface, the Los Angeles Times reported.
It is true that most volcanic pollution of the lower atmosphere is removed within days by the effects of rainfall and gravity, but stratospheric pollution may remain there
for several years, gradually spreading to cover much of the globe. This stratospheric pollution results in a substantial reduction in the direct solar beam, largely through scattering by the highly reflective sulphuric acid aerosols. This can amount to tens
of percent. The reduction, is however, compensated for by an increase in diffuse radiation and by the absorption of outgoing terrestrial radiation (the greenhouse effect). Overall, there is a net reduction of 5 to 10% in energy received at the Earth’s
The Earth seems to have been smoking a lot recently. Volcanoes are erupting in Iceland, Hawaii, Indonesia,
Ecuador and Mexico, as well as the recent eruption of Japan’s Mount Ontake. Others, in the Philippines and Papua New Guinea, erupted recently but seem to have calmed down. That’s the short list.
The Guardian printed,
“Due to factors such as the gravitational pull of the sun and moon, the speed at which the Earth rotates constantly changes. Accordingly, the length of a day actually varies from year to year. The difference is only in the order of milliseconds. But
new research suggests that this seemingly small perturbation could bring about significant changes on our planet – or more accurately, within it.” A study published in the journal Terra Nova in February showed that changes in the Earth’s rotation rate tended to be followed by increases in global volcanic activity.
The number of volcanoes that are erupting continues to rise. In 2013, we witnessed the
most volcanic eruptions worldwide that we have ever seen in a single year, and this increased activity has carried over into 2014. The previous number was set in 2010, at 82 volcanic eruptions for the year. The number of volcanoes erupting across the planet
has been steadily rising from just 55 recorded in 1990. The average number of volcanic eruptions per year should be about 50 to 60; as of December 5, 2013, we were already at 83.
“In the last decade, the amount of volcanic aerosol in the stratosphere
has increased, so more sunlight is being reflected back into space,” said lead author Benjamin Santer, climate scientist
at Laurence Livermore National Laboratory, in a press release. “This has created a natural cooling of the planet and has partly offset the increase in surface and atmospheric temperatures due to human influence.”
herefore, we know what volcanoes can do but no one has been able to calculate the accumulating effects of many smaller eruptions going
off at the same time. Many of our recent volcanic eruptions have been very large and together seem to be having a strong and unexpected effect. The well-known cooling effect of volcanic ash is combining with diminishing radiation from the sun to slam us into,
not eventual cooling, but quick cooling that will change life in the higher latitudes this year.
Cold Climate Disaster Coming Our
This is a serious warning: An early build-up of snow in the northern hemisphere suggests that governmental units, charities and families should be prepared for the possibility of extended periods of colder and/or snowier weather relative to average this winter. This would especially be a factor in the mid-South where they are not used to getting much snow in the winter. Budgets
are going to be busted with snow removal. Many families will struggle with increased heating bills.
We continue to have a huge build-up of snow in the northern areas of the Northern Hemisphere. From Canada across Siberia to northern Europe, snow has
come significantly earlier than average. There is a strong correlation between early snow cover in eastern Asia and cold/snowy winters in the eastern U.S. Air that sits over all that snow is going to be cold and getting colder as the sun continues to
retreat to the south until we reach the Winter Solstice on Dec. 21.
In Great Brittan heavy and persistent snow, freezing gales and sub-zero temperatures threaten to grind the country to a standstill for up to FIVE MONTHS, horrified long-range weather forecasters have warned. The impending
bout of extreme weather will come as a shock and forecasters have warned Britons should not to be lulled into a false sense of security by the recent mild conditions. January is currently showing signs of temperatures hitting “record-breaking”
lows meaning parts of the country could see the mercury plunge to -27C (-17F).
The greatest human disaster of the last thousand years is upon us and governments are asleep at the helm. A train is barreling down the tracks headed right for the peoples
of earth yet there are those who lie and say the train is moving away. As they cry about the heat, it is getting colder at a dangerous rate. The planet is losing heat even though things
are heating up with volcanoes and earthquake activity.
Global cooling is hard reality, it is no one’s fantasy. It is not a computer model that creates mental fabrications and estimates
of reality without touching on reality itself. Global cooling means cold and lots of it. That means lots more energy to keep warm if you live outside the tropics.
Look at the following video to get a peek at the speed of cooling that is going on. It will show you the northern ice pack; how fast it grew in a recent ten-day period. In the southern hemisphere, we just finished winter, and saw record sea ice form
around Antarctica. I can feel that from here in the subtropics, for I live at the furthest point east in all of the Americas in Brazil. Looking down the globe from here it’s a straight ocean run to the ice pack ten thousand odd miles to the south.
Millions of us better start recalculating our lives. Certainly hundreds of towns and cities will have to recalculate their budgets for snow removal. Heating bills will have to be recalculated. Just imagine what will happen to many economies and the retail
business if people cannot get out of their homes during the holidays.
It is understandable if it is hard to grasp the full danger here. First, the governments have everyone looking the other way so no one prepares. People in Bulgaria, as we shall see
below, are already suffering from what I am talking about and it is still early fall.
Think of it this way to get your mind around it. A hurricane is headed directly toward you and it is going to be a whopper. First thing you do is run to the market
and clear out the shelves, stocking up on everything you can think of in a hurry. No time to think because everyone else is running.
Now the size! This storm is going to hit the entire northern hemisphere at the same time starting now and building up
and continuing for the next six months. In Bulgaria winter and unending snow of at least 40 hours duration is burying them right now taking their power as well. Even without record snow, record cold will be a storm on millions of lives.
Europe, Canada and the United States will be the worst hit. Crops have already been destroyed from early snow and cold. Do I have to put on a blue jacket and saddle up like Paul Revere yelling the cold is coming the cold is coming? Ebola will be the least
of our problems.
I have been writing about global cooling for about seven years. It is that length of time at least since a long list of scientists have been warning us about what is going on. Obviously, we have not been listening and we have these
loud obnoxious political sound machines out on all the streets blasting out warning of global warming.
Time Magazine and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) announced a week ago. “The earth “could be” heading for
its warmest year on record. Last month was the warmest September in 135 years of record keeping, with the global average temperature 60.3 degrees Fahrenheit (15.72 degrees Celsius), the Associated Press reports. May, June and August were also record-breaking months. NOAA climate scientist Jessica Blunden told AP it was “pretty likely” that 2014 would be the hottest year since measurements began.
Hard science is staring us right
in the face. The sun is in retreat and it does that from time to time without fail. We have had Ebola and war threaten us but now the concern is going to shift week by week to the cold, snow and
ice. I would not want to be without a BioMat during a long cold winter. Only problem is they depend on electricity.
This image shows that US is having coldest year on record-2014 “The most widespread heat occurred in 1931, when more than 98% of stations were over 90 degrees.”
The percentage of US HCN stations to reach 90 degrees was the smallest on record this year, with four of the five coolest years occurring above 350 PPM CO2.
Winter in Fall
Gabrovo and Sevlievo declare emergency
in Bulgaria because of extremely severe winter conditions at the end of October with two full months remaining before winter officially arrives. More than fifty villages have no electricity. All roads and passes in the region are blocked. The main roads
in the country are closed, trains are stopped, and thousands of subscribers are without electricity. Heavy snow did not stop for ten hours, along with hurricane winds and freezing temperatures. 40 people, including 20 children, were stranded for four hours
at the train station after trains stopped moving in the region. Authorities have mobilized all civil protection teams, fire and police, and 50 snowplows. However, their work is hampered by the columns of stranded cars.
The situation in Gabrovo Municipality
seems to deteriorate with every passing hour after more
than 35 hours of continuous snowfall. The heavy snowfall is cutting power in more and more settlements as their number by the moment is over 90. Three living districts in Gabrovo are also without electricity. Last time I checked it was 44 hours of continuous
snow. The post-storm situation following this past week remains critical. Drinking water is unfit for human use due to turbidity of the local lake. About 50 villages and districts in the county town are still without electricity. The dire situation remains
The amount of available grain will decline as temperatures get cooler. Even if you’re able to harvest it, if the wheat is covered with snow when you harvest it, once that snow melts and turns to water, the seeds become moldy. Russia
has slashed its wheat crop forecast. Same conditions in the Ukraine – early snows damaged the corn. Sorghum, flax, millet, buckwheat, it doesn’t matter which grain you’re talking about, if it gets wet it’s unusable. As snows arrive
earlier with a cooling phase on Earth, grain harvests and planting will be affected.
Even in Hawaii it is cold. Despite the volcanic action in Hawaii over the past few days, the islands of Mauna Loa and
Mauna Kea experienced a rare and very early snowfall two weeks ago. While snowfall on the big island is nothing new, commonly seen on the mountains on Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea, seeing snow this early in the season on the mountains is somewhat rare. It is
exceptionally cold for October in Hawaii.
Moreover, what do we have served up for weather these coming days in the United States from AccuWeather?
Depending on its path, the storm could dump major snowfall over part of New England and as far south as the mountains of northern Georgia, leaving fallen trees and downed power lines in its wake.
“A shocking blast of cold air and the potential for snow will highlight the weather for millions in the Eastern states this Halloween into the first weekend of November, says accuweather.com.
elevations of West Virginia may receive between 1 and 2 feet of snow,” says AccuWeather Chief Meteorologist Elliot Abrams. Meanwhile, a different storm will dump rain on the Pacific coast as far south as Southern California, where snow
levels could drop to 5,000 feet.
