Media Ignore Vast Summer Cold Across Northern Hemisphere; Southern USA, Russia See “Record Lows” In July

While the headlines naturally focused on an intense heat wave over a region centered over France and Germany last week, the global warming ambulance chasers worked overtime avoiding and ignoring the real story: vast, continent-wide cold spreading across Russia.

Heat and cold zero-sum

First at the European Institute for Climate and Energy (EIKE), Klaus Öllerer reported how the Sahara heat ended up being a “zero-sum” event for the northern hemisphere region of Europe and Asia.

Öllerer wrote last week that despite the heat that took place in large parts of Europe, it was cooler than usual in other neighboring parts. Only a certain area in Central Europe (purple area) was particularly hot. Around it, it was less warm (yellow) and cooler than usual (blue):


“Even large parts of the Sahara are cooler than usual (blue). This is no wonder, as the heat is now in Europe and cooler air flows into the Sahara,” Öllerer wrote.

“The above-average warm areas balance out with the above-average cold areas,” he concluded. “The current warming is a zero-sum game! Historically, such events have occurred again and again.”

“It is even the case that in cooler times – such as the Little Ice Age – warm summer extremes were more frequent than in the last one hundred years and more,” Öllerer added.

Severe cold across Russia

Last Saturday on his July 27 Weatherbell Saturday Summary, meteorologist Joe Bastardi posted images of what the coming days would look like over Eastern Europe and Russia:

Record cold across in southern USA

In the USA, July cold records were set across southern US, here reported.

The media were awfully silent about all this.

    The watchers news page is reporting – –
    Major stratospheric eruption at Ulawun volcano,
    ash to 19.2 km (63 000 feet)

    Thanks for the post, and that link.

      Thanks, John. I haven’t been keeping up with that. I usually check here…

      …buy haven’t been for a while now. Looks like Ulawan isn’t the only one that’s popped recently.

      Aside – With all the volcanoes in the S.Pacific, it’s a wonder none were ever mentioned in connection with WWII history. (Not saying they didn’t happen, just that I’ve never heard of any. I assume it would have been mentioned if there had been any.) Would certainly have complicated things.

    Here in central Indiana the crops look pretty sad compared to most years. Not going to be a very good year for most of the US corn belt. Heavy spring rains and flooding resulted in late planting and plenty of low laying bottom land was not planted at all. Despite that I read that once again the global grain harvest will be breaking the record. Yields exactly opposite of what the doomsayers predicted.

    The “blob” of warm surface waters south of Alaska has reemerged and is very strong. Job Bastardi believes that and other factors indicate that it is going to be a tough winter for much of the US. Colder and snowier than average. Last time the blob was at it’s peak Boston set a new 24 hour snow accumulation record. We saw a morning of -15 F temps here in Indiana and had a memorable blizzard. Noticed almost all of the Great lakes surface temps are running below average for this time of year. Superior is well below average.

      I may be up in your neck of the woods, rah. But i do NOT plan on staying the winter. I was up there for the really cold one, and that’s enough for me.
