«We have a difficult ice situation around the oil platform» At this time of year, there has never before been such a complicated ice condition around Russia’s offshore Arctic oil platform «Prirazlomnaya».

«It started in March-April and continues until this day,» says Gazprom Neft, the operator of the «Prirazlomnaya». The platform is based in the Pechora Sea and is Russia’s only oil-producing installation in Arctic waters.

The company, a subsidiary of natural gas company Gazprom, is now hiring a another icebreaker for clearing the waters around the platform. The 120-meter long «Vladivostok» is owned by state sea port company Rosmorport’s, built in 2014 and has a capacity of  17,5 MW.

«The engagement of the powerful icebreaker «Vladivostok» will provide faultless and secure loading of the shuttle tankers, safe supplies and emergency and rescue preparedness in the area around the platform,» the company says.

Data from vessel tracker system MarineTraffic show that there on Tuesday were two tankers and three support vessels around the Prirazlomnaya.

Ice conditions are difficult not only in the Pechora Sea, but also in the Kara Sea and the other parts of Russian Arctic waters. Ice mapping by the Russian Arctic and Antarctic Institute shows that almost the whole Kara Sea is full of very closed drift ice. The situation in the nearby Gulf of Ob is even more complicated.

State nuclear icebreaker company Rosatomflot last week informed that independent shipping in the area is «paralysed» and that LNG carriers and tankers are stuck. «We are back to the standards of the 1980s and 1990s,» said company representative Andrey Smirnov.

Global Climate Shift Amplification Media Pushes Global Cooling to Protect Themselves

With the now obvious changes in our climate signaling “Global Cooling” we see the Wall Street Journal question James Hansen’s predictions and the AGW narrative, even calling out predictions that did not pan out. The media is now dripping in words to articles like, Grand Solar Minimum, Global Cooling and Shifting Cloud Patterns to give themselves some credibility as the climate cools. When meteorologists in Canada call all time record snow “White Rain” because they don’t feel snow belongs in summertime lexicon of weather forecasting, we have a huge shift happening in the media arenas. Record snow in Italy, Canada, Slovakia, Ukraine, Poland, Slovenia all this week, people are starting to ask questions about the media we are being fed. Arctic ice at 13 year highs, Greenland Ice Budget growing, Antarctic Sea Ice growing, people are really starting to wake up. This will be the last year of “Global Warming” on our planet.

MUST WATCH Weather Report : Forget The Cold! Global Warming Is Real!

ABC indoctrination - CLIMATISM

AUSTRALIA’S billion-dollar-a-year taxpayer funded public broadcaster, the ABC, is never shy pushing their CO2-centric global warming climate change agenda wherever and whenever possible.

THIS particular weather report that had to inconveniently divulge extreme cold temps that have kicked off Australia’s colder than average start to winter would make even infamous NAZI propagandist Joseph Goebbels blush!

Andrew Bolt with the rub…

Global warming has stalled, and the ABC’s weatherman must report “bitterly cold” weather in NSW and likely record low June temperatures for Broken Hill.

So he breaks off to sternly lecture any backsliders:

“Global warming doesn’t mean that cold temperatures won’t be recorded but rather that record heat temperatures will be far more common.”

“SCIENCE” UPDATE

ABC Weatherman Graham Creed @WeathermanABC again…

“Now on a quick side note, though, Global warming doesn’t mean that cold temperatures won’t be recorded, rather, record heat temperatures will be far more common and widespread.”

THIS statement is yet another ABC global warming climate change falsehood!

According to GCHN and ACORN-SAT data – the official data sets used by Bureau of Meteorology – annual maximum temps are ‘declining’ as CO2 increases…

Annual temperature Range (MaxT -MinT) averaged over all 1800 stations in Australia compared to the temperature anomaly

However, according to GHCN and ACORN-SAT (‘adjusted’ data), the Australian temperature anomaly is, yes, increasing, but this is due to nighttime temps increasing faster than daytime temps are declining…

Annual temperature Range (MaxT -MinT) averaged over all 1800 stations in Australia compared to the temperature anomaly CLIMATISM

UHI caused by urban sprawl appears to be the most likely reason for nighttime temps up, IMO. (See link for Urban versus Rural temps station data… NO Australian Under The Age Of 40 Has Experienced Any Global Warming | Climatism)

*

MEANWHILE, according to the much more comprehensive and accurate NASA satellite temps, unpolluted by land-based UHI (Urban Heat Island effect)…

NO Australian Under The Age Of 40 Has Experienced Any Global Warming

ACCORDING to NASA’s MSU satellite data, there has been no warming, at all, over the continent of Australia since the record began 40 years ago…

AUSTRALIA Lower Troposheric Temperature Anomaly 1978-2018 CLIMATISM

The ABC will fight to the last to protect the warmist faith it has pushed and exaggerated and hyped and defended for years with a truly manic energy.
