Pravda: “Scientists Now Warn Of A New Ice Age” As Temperature Plummets to – 80°F In Russia!

UPDATE! “Arctic outbreak kills dozens…

===============================================
Some impressive winter events have been taking place all across the northern hemisphere lately. Especially eastern and southeastern Europe have been pounded by massive snowfalls and tremendously cold temperatures. Turkey has been buried by heavy snows and extreme temperatures have gripped the entire USA and vast areas of Russia.

The global warming climate appears to have been hacked by natural factors.

  • In Russia Moscow celebrated the coldest orthodox Christmas in 125 years.
  • Snowfall paralyzed the city of Istanbul, Turkey.
  • Massive snow falls across the Balkans, Italy and Greece.
  • Dozens of Europeans have since frozen to death.
  • Northern Albania villages have been cut off by 120 cm of snow.
  • A temperature of -62°C (-80°F) was recorded in Chanty-Mansijsk (Russia).

Arctic conditions spread deep into the Mediterranean

These are all odd events when considering the “consensus” forecasts made 15 years ago, which warned that snow and ice would become rare.

In fact many scientists warned that Mediterranean conditions would spread into northern Europe. Lately, however, just the opposite has happened: Arctic conditions have plunged down into the Mediterranean!

Even worse, there is no end in site for the harsh European winter conditions, German mass circulation daily Bild writes here.

Warning of an impending ice age

So in the face of all the earlier global warming predictions, it is now only ironic that yesterday the German-language Pravda TV site here published an article warning of an impending ice age. The article cites Yale scientist Wei Liu and a recent paper he published on the “overlooked possibility of a collapsed Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation“. Should the ocean heat conveyor collapse, then there would be “a prominent cooling over the northern North Atlantic and neighboring areas, sea ice increases over the Greenland-Iceland-Norwegian seas and to the south of Greenland.”

Note: Pravda is a rebel-type German site, and so could be viewed to be in similar ranks as climate alarmist sites, but with an opposite view. A collapsed AMOC is still speculative.

Useless models

The Pravda report summarizes Liu’s paper as follows:

CO2 has nothing to do with it, rather the influence of the sun is the dominant factor: less sunspots (Climate: solar physicists project global cooling (video)), weakening of the earth’s magnetic field, impact on the jet stream are decisive factors that can quickly lead our climate into an ice age (Scientists: Consensus 2016: the climate models are useless (Video)).”

Pravda also describes how some experts say today’s climate models fail to take the known ocean and solar factors in account.

UPDATE:
Snow forecast for Europe for the next 10 days!:


Note how far south that snow cover reaches, all the way deep into the Mediterranean – covering Sicily, Greece, southwestern Turkey and North Africa.

    Question to radio Jerewan:

    Is it true, that Scientists Now Warn Of A New Ice Age?

    Answer:

    In principal, yes.

    But it were not scientists, but my brothers 3 year old son.

    and he was not warning of anything, but crying about it.

    And it was not a new ice age, but a cone of strawberry ice.

    But the rest of the story is fully true!

    PS: are there english versions of these jokes?

      Typical response of a diseased mind to truths calling out their lies. Deflect, deflect, deflect.

        “Typical response of a diseased mind to truths calling out their lies. Deflect, deflect, deflect.”

        this article is so bad, that it was simply asking for a radio Jerewan response.

        There is absolutely no truth in it and neither a single fact. So in fact my response was right on target.

        But you folks are always wrong, so possibly we should respond more often with radio Jerewan jokes:

        Question: can we start eating the mushrooms again after Tschernobil accident?

        Answer: In principal, yes. As long as your toilet is not linked to the public sewer system.

          “But you folks are always wrong”

          SOD drops all pretense of being interested in science.

      Sod, hopefully your balls will freeze and fall off when this hits. Anything to shut your endless crap up.

    3. Mark

      One person put carbon dioxide pollution in perspective…”They’ve turned the very loving, warm breath that you breathe on your child’s cute little face, into a pollutant.”

    4. tom0mason

      Another distraction for you sod,

      And here is one that has been falsified in just a year and a half. In early 2009,Stephen Chu, Obama’s always loudly proclaimed, Nobel Laureate who can’t be doubted when he talks of climate, because he got a Nobel in an entirely unrelated field, i.e. in high temperature superconduction, said this about global warming and the California snowpack:

      Chu recently told the Los Angeles Times that global warming might melt 90 percent of California’s snowpack, which stores much of the water needed for agriculture. This, Chu said, would mean “no more agriculture in California,” the nation’s leading food producer. Chu added: “I don’t actually see how they can keep their cities going.”
      No more lettuce for Los Angeles? Chu likes predictions, so here is another: Nine decades hence, our great-great-grandchildren will add the disappearance of California artichokes to the list of predicted planetary calamities that did not happen. Global cooling recently joined that lengthening list. George Will, “Dark Green Doomsayers,” Feb 15, 2009.

      Well, just 2 years later we find that the snowpack holds more water than at anytime in the past 17 years. But of course, we all know that the alarmists now say warming is cooling and much snowfall is to be expected on a hot earth.

      But we are told that we should never doubt the proclamations of a Nobel Laureate, even if he is pontificating about things outside his field of expertise. After all, his is the CONSENSUS view.

    Oh no! Now we have anthropogenic sun-spot depletion brought on by all those solar energy plants using up the sunspots.

    Check out the abstract in Liu’s paper at http://advances.sciencemag.org/content/3/1/e1601666.full

    “Changes in the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC) are moderate in most climate model projections under increasing greenhouse gas forcing. This intermodel consensus may be an artifact of common model biases that favor a stable AMOC. Observationally based freshwater budget analyses suggest that the AMOC is in an unstable regime susceptible for large changes in response to perturbations. By correcting the model biases, we show that the AMOC collapses 300 years after the atmospheric CO2 concentration is abruptly doubled from the 1990 level. Compared to an uncorrected model, the AMOC collapse brings about large, markedly different climate responses: a prominent cooling over the northern North Atlantic and neighboring areas, sea ice increases over the Greenland-Iceland-Norwegian seas and to the south of Greenland, and a significant southward rain-belt migration over the tropical Atlantic. Our results highlight the need to develop dynamical metrics to constrain models and the importance of reducing model biases in long-term climate projection.”

    Wake me up 300 years after the doubling happens.

    1. Matt McGuinness

      So the AMOC has run amok?

    2. sod

      the paper says the opposite of what is claimed about it.

      The cooling (in specific places) is a side effect of CO2 and will happen pretty far in the future.

      1. DirkH

        “The cooling (in specific places) is a side effect of CO2 and will happen pretty far in the future.”

        You say warmunists say that CO2 will COOL “Certain” places?
        How does this work, sod? We know that CO2 is well mixed. Please explain how CO2 COOLs the surface, assuming standard warmunist theory.

      2. John

        “The cooling (in specific places) is a side effect of CO2”
        Right.
        So at first CO2 warms the planet and it now COOLS it?

      3. AndyG55

        “The cooling (in specific places) is a side effect of CO2”

        And it EXACTLY CANCELS any warming from CO2

        That must be the case, because EVERYONE knows that there is absolutely zero CO2 signal in any real climate data.

        Its GREAT to see you getting on bard, sop, with the realisation that CO2 has absolute no effect on the global temperature.

        ps..

        Have you managed to take even one of your feet out of your gob yet ?????

        You must be getting very comfortable with that position.

    3. david

      Well, one of the “scares” has been that the conveyor belt will collapse SOON. This paper (admittedly it is just more modelling) says “not for 300 years.”

      1. sod

        “Well, one of the “scares” has been that the conveyor belt will collapse SOON. This paper (admittedly it is just more modelling) says “not for 300 years.”

        no, that is NOT what it says.

        The paper says that some model run (which they say might show a model bias towards stability) might lead to the CO2 effect leading to some cooling effect in 300 years.

        http://advances.sciencemag.org/content/3/1/e1601666.full

        this nuanced message is translated here to: New Iceage! Models fail! No CO2 effect! No problem for 300 years!

        in the real world, the paper does: confirm the CO2 effect. Mentions a side effect (regional cooling ) in some model results. Warns that models are too stable (bad news for folks here, you claim, the opposite!) and does NOT rule out an eralier conveyor belt collapse.

        1. DirkH

          Ah. So warmunism predicts EVERY possible outcome again. Just run the computer often enough, I see. So warmunism has NO predictive skill. What we always said.

          Pack up your things, you’re FIRED. Find a warmunist oligarch who pays you AFTER we have shut down his tax-evasion foundation.

          “Warns that models are too stable (bad news for folks here, you claim, the opposite!)” – sod

          Bad News? What are you blathering about?

          If models are stable, they aren’t real. If they are unstable, they’re output will be wrong, or, if right, that will only be by accident.

          Models can’t forecast the future. Period.

          And, you can’t bring a proof from a paper about something that hasn’t happened yet.

  5. Carlmann

    I visited the arctic museum in St. Petersburg Russian about 11-years ago. A talk was being given on the solar influence on our climate. They were debunking the CO2 causes.

    1. sod

      A big part of the world is starting to understand, that Russia is an ultimate source of a lot of fake news.

      What interests could gas supplying Russia have, to talk down climate change and CO2?

      Yeah, it must be an interest in pure science!

      1. AndyG55

        A big part of the blogosphere well aware that people like sop, appell, etc etc are parrot minded monkeys, spreading fake news from the AGW priests.

        So brain-washed with the Klimate Kool-Aide that they are unable to form a rational though, bending every little point into FAKE NEWS to support their irrational belief in their baseless AGW religion.

      2. Jim

        A Part of the world also understands that Russia can not afford to get it wrong. They would be among the first to feel the impacts of a worsening (cooling) climate. So of course they would be considering other factors not just the west’s foolishness about Co2.

    The world has always known that it’s the Sun who warms us year-around. This fact has been overshadowed by a global hoax that was perpetuated by a group whose brilliant idea was to blame CO2 and thus make a lot of money in the process selling Carbon Credits. However, anyone who used their God given mind and has the ability to read and think has known that Climate Change is ongoing, and swings from Hot to Cold and back again. With the absence of Sunspots, our earth cools and with it very possibly an Ice Age begins.

  9. Duke Silver

    Looks like the warmist zealots will get their way after all. They wanted it cooler, and here it comes.

    Or, perhaps president Lame-Duck scared that dastardly CO2 right back into the ground where it belongs and the temps have decided to drop simply to appease him.

    That one is in line with the “unknown bubble has protected us from the extreme storms” theory proposed recently.

    1. NotAgain

      Once we have a new consensus for the coming Ice Age, the Environmentalists will of course take credit for regsulations and carbon taxes that REVERSED “Global Warming”.

    British astrophysicist Piers Corbyn has been warning about this for years. But since he is not a member of the AGW “consensus” he was ignored. Global cooling will be much harder on humans and wildlife then warming!

      “So far…weather…”

      True,

      BUT:

      CAGW zealots said that the warming trends would dominate, so that such weather would not typically exist. Therefore, the mere existence of “weather” is significant as evidence – of foolish alarmism.

      Similarly, when we were told by Obama that hurricanes in the USA would be more frequent and violent, THIS only made any sense, as a prediction that the trend would be so extreme that it would be detectable agaiunst the usual, natural, extreme variablity of hurricanes from season to season.

      Globally, 2015 “Accumulated Cyclone Energy” was 140% of “normal” but 2016 was only 104%.

    Vostok ice core data suggests that we have been at the top of an interglacial period for several thousand years. By definition, this is when temperatures are the warmest. The next cycle will be a glacial cycle. According to the data, the glacial cycles last an average of approximately 85,000 years.

  15. Bruce Berkson

    Since the principal of greenhouse gas effect or confined Space Heating can only occur in a confined space as the name suggests, and the Earth has no walls, CO2 cannot possibly generate Heat. Since the CO2 (.04% of the atmosphere) goes wherever the wind blows it, it can’t form some magic dome at the top of the stratosphere that holds heat in. It’s all a massive redistribution of wealth scheme.

  16. Bill Stimpel

    Based on Antarctic ice cores correlated with solar activity, scientists from the Univ. of St. Petersburg predicted in 1993 that the current cooling would begin in 1998, which it actually did, and would continue for at least 40 years

  17. Wally

    It’s the Sun! The Sun is going into a weak cycle and, yes, it is taking us into a mini-ice age such as the earth experienced 300 years ago. Will it be the beginning of a full blown ice-age lasting tens of thousands of years? I don’t think anyone can say. But it does appear that the earth is heading to at least a cooling that could last tens or hundreds of years.

  18. Darryl

    Imagine how cold it would be if we didn’t have all this Global Warming going on…

  19. Pouncekitty

    Oh, dear, what will happen to the warming crowd? What new fake science will they come up with to deny the cooling? Who are the real DENIERS?

  20. Vinny

    Don’t people who can think for themselves not see that the AGW crowd always talks about impending disaster that are decades if not centuries away so no one is suppose to challenge their “Scientific Principles”. 2012 “D” Science student Al Gore told us in our lifetime people will not have remember snow falling. I guess after California has their 20 feet of snow in the Sierra this week he will have to start pushing that back a little. They blame everything possible on man’s intrusion and disruption to climate but conveniently ignore changes in the Sun cycles and volcanic activity including those eruptions under the ocean floor.

    Call me a Flat Earther I’ll just call you politically motivated liars.

    It seems we are all attracted to the dramatic, while in fact most of life is mundane. I have serious doubts about the drama predicted in this article, although it is clear to me that the sun is far more significant in climate that the puny effect of CO2.

    In looking for statistically significant oscillations in the sunspot data, both the original data and the revised (manipulated) data, there are far more cycles (close to 100) than just the “11 year cycle”, and in fact there are five significant oscillations that together produce what is regarded as the 11 year cycle.

    Here are two screenshots of the charts in two of my spreadsheets. The first is based on the original data with the last data point being December, 2016. The second is based on the revised data for the same period. The top of these screenshots is a comparison of the historic record (red), a model based on many oscillations identified in the data (blue), and a simple least squares line fit to the data (green). The bottom of the screenshots is just a blowup of the latter portion of the top chart. The model did not predict the past, but the past produced the model, so in the past, obviously they match closely.

    While the next two “11 year cycles” will be muted, this is not an indication that we are now entering a little ice age. Notice, however, how long we will be at near zero activity between the end of the current “11 year cycle” and the next one. There will be plenty of false conclusions being presented during this unusually long period of inactivity.

    Of course the future will not unfold exactly as this analysis projects. The cycles are measured based on averages lengths, phases, and amplitudes, but prediction the variations from the averages in the future is beyond my current capabilities because my analysis is not based on some fundamentals within the sun or solar system that drive the oscillations, but just the historical sunspot numbers these fundamental produced.

    I am not a scientists who is paid no matter how good or bad his work, but a speculator who uses cyclical oscillations, in part, to trade markets. In other words, I must get it right or I lose money. Looking at climate is just a side interest to me.

      the word or phrase and automatically bringing it to hand for him to include in a reply or refutation. Often it will be irrelevant, of course.

    Climate change? How about light change? Sometimes it gets dark and sometimes it gets light? What about that???
    Perhaps some genius professor can get a big, I mean really
    big government grant to study that? He could then hire a few cute interns and go off to some Pacific Island and study that! He then could write a brilliant book which
    would become a text which would be required reading by
    any student who wants to graduate.
    How about that?

  34. Robert T. Koch

    If you remember the predictions of global cooling in the 1970’s, you may recall that the cure of cooling is basically the same as warming, so the socialist science community can keep their agenda without missing a beat.

  35. Enkidu

    If we had this conditions without the ongoing Tropospheric Water Grabbing (TWG) by Tropospheric Aerosol Injection (TAI), than we could talk about a natural shift in the climate cycle.

    There is already an undeclared global war on tropospheric water as a water mining and transportation resource.

    It is hard to understand and accept a global scale grabbing on water behind the daily propaganda about a man made “climate change” by man made “global warming” by only man made “CO2”. However, if the victims would just replace …

    Climate Change by Geoengineering
    Global Warming by HAARP, TWG and TAI

    everything would become clear.

    I heard that polar bear farts are going to cause an ice age. The additional polar bear farts were caused due to the warming that occurred from the cow farts. As it warmed food was more available up north where the polar bears live. They started to eat more which caused the polar bears to fart more. The resulting cooling is caused by the extra polar bear farts.

    Normally I find farts to be as funny as the next guy. This is not funny though… 99% of liberal scientists agree that farts are very bad for climate. The heating or cooling just depends on which animal is farting.

    1. Jeff

      I think it’s just typical of the realophobic liberal left.

      What they really want to do is get rid of us old farts. We have the knowledge, the experience, and the empirical (read: observational) knowledge to show and prove what we see and know.

      They are only blowing gas in the wind… and it’s an ill wind that blows no good…

  37. nameless

    The greatest irony would be the intentional production of huge quantities of atmospheric CO2 in an effort to mitigate the cooling, our first attempt at terraforming. When that fails it will be obvious that this vast earth behaves of its own accord, unaffected by the minuscule activities of humans.

  38. Machismo

    “The global warming climate appears to have been hacked by natural factors.”
    It never was “Global Warming” Al Gores greatest Hoax in the history of man. And then they call it “Climate Change” so they do not look quite as stupid. The earth has always “Changed Climate” and the Ice Age is due by looking at soil / Rock historical records.

  39. Adrian Vance

    Of course, Russia has done this to make Hillary look bad! It’s all a great plot and Donald J. Trump is responsible because Hillary is not only the smartest woman in the world, but she is perfect too!

    We are 40,000 years overdue for a big dip in Earth temperature if you look at the Vostoc Ice Core studies of the 1957 IGY UN project. It just leaps off the page if you know anything about science or statistics, but THE RUSSIANS DID IT! (gasp)

    Here’s an experiment for your children at their next Science Fair. Testing the properties of water for the purpose of understanding the climate. The first test, speed at which ice melts in water versus air. Take an ice cube, put it on a plate in a normal room temperature room. Take a piece of ice, put it in room temperature water at same time. Calculate how fast each melts, which one melted faster? Also, do another experiment. Two glasses of water. One glass of water leave in a room with a space heater not pointed at it directly and gradually heat the room. Next, in another room, keep the room cool, set at 68. Put a glass of water in this room but put it under a UV light. You will find A) ice melts faster in water than in the air and B) Sunlight heats the water faster than surrounding air temperature increase will heat the water. This simple experiment demonstrates that warming water has a bigger impact on ice melt and that water is warmed more intensely by direct sunlight than by surrounding air temperature.

    1. John F. Hultquist

      “… under a UV light …”

      If one wants to study “sunlight” then UV is not the choice.
      You should have a full spectrum light — of that only a small part will be UV.

      On the water melting ice part, the interesting issue is that in a warming situation, rain on a glacier erodes the ice rapidly. The whiteness of snow gives a high reflection (albedo) and snow also acts as an insulator between air and ice.
      Further, when it snows the air is not particularly warm and doesn’t contain a lot of moisture. Warm air can contain more moisture. All of this results in glaciers growing slowly (snowfall) and eroding rapidly (rainfall).

      I think you can devise much better experiments for children – science fairs than you have reported above.

    Dear friends in Russia,

    everything is ok with the climate. We have problems because of climate-engineering for tropospheric water grabbing!

    We are in dangerous times, because again a western power tries to conquer the treasures of Russia.

    France under Napoleon, Germans under various kings and at last with Hitler tried it, also in the background always England. Now the self claimed “single global empire” based in the USA is trying it with the help of all its vassals under the umbrella of NATO, EU, WTO, World Bank, IMF etc. etc.

    In hard times You learn to know who is Your real friend. Between states we don’t really speak about friendship but about common interests. So all states and people sharing the same threat are now friends of Russia and Russia is their best friend, with honor and power.

    AbuAli Wlad Putin is the savior of our times. He rescued Russia from the hands of robbing marionette oligarchs and now Russia is saving under his leadership the Middle East and the world.

    Thank You for that. Thank You Russia and all Russian people.

    Never let You be divided along religious and ethnic differences. The most important faith of all Russians should be Russia!

    Now I would like offer insight into a field, which most people don’t understand, because You need some combined knowledge of meteorology, water physics, biology, chemistry, geography, economy etc.

    The common topic is named geoengineering, which is the materialization of geostrategy on proverbial global scale.

    Main target, main weapon, main weapon of geoengineering is tropospheric water!

    Why is now so much water in the deserts?

    All of what’s happening now has been predicted by Otto Landscheidt decades ago.
