The global warming scam is beginning to collapse. Even CBS News Boston is starting to understand.
BOSTON (CBS) — Despite the snow blitz of 2015, many baby boomers still insist that, overall, we don’t get the harsh bitter cold and deep snowy winters like we did in the good ole days.
Weather records prove that just isn’t the case and despite the ongoing claims that snows are becoming rare and hurting winter sports, this millennium has been a blessing to snow lovers and winter sports enthusiasts.
The last decade stands out like a sore thumb! It has had 29 major impact northeast winter storms with NO previous 10-year period with more than 10 storms! In Boston, 7 out of the last 10 years have produced snowfall above the average 43.7 inches.
2014-15: 110.6″ Greatest On Record Back To 1872
Additionally, the trend for fall snow across the northern hemisphere has been increasing, defying the forecasts over the last two decades for snows becoming an increasingly rare event. The 10-year running mean of the Boston area snowfall has skyrocketed to the highest level since snow records were kept and that goes back about 145 years!
Note the slam on Michael Mann here :
Interestingly, some scientists have stated that increasing snow is consistent with climate change because warmer air holds more moisture, more water vapor and this can result in more storms with heavy precipitation. The trick, of course, is having sufficient cold air to produce that snow. But note that 93% of the years with more than 60″ of snow in Boston were colder than average years. The reality is cooling, not warming, increases snowfall. Note the graph depicting declining January through March temperatures for 20 years at a rate of 1.5 degrees F. per decade in the Northeast!
It was a well-written article, until this point where the author threw in this global warming BS.
The greatest warming has been happening in the Arctic region and that can produce a weaker, less stable jet stream that allows frigid air to dive farther south to mix with the warmer oceans to trigger more potential snow events.
This is complete nonsense. The identical jet stream pattern occurred during the 1970s when Arctic sea ice was at a peak.
It snowed in Miami in 1977 while Alaska was warm.
During the 1970s, the polar vortex was blamed on global cooling instead of global warming.
Scientists have found other indications of global cooling. For one thing, there has been a noticeable expansion of the great belt of dry, high-altitude polar winds —the so-called circumpolar vortex—that sweep from west to east around the top and bottom of the world.
One step at a time. At least they are starting to get the statistics right.

Weather Forecasts Predict Coldest Ever Thanksgiving In Northeast
By Tyler Durden
According to new weather models, the US mid-Atlantic and Northeast regions are expected to experience the coldest/earliest temperatures to the start of any winter season on record.
Weather Prediction Center: “Highs 20-35 degrees below normal” The culprit: a massive area of high pressure from the Arctic Circle will descend across Canada and into the Northeast, collapsing temperatures to life-threatening conditions ahead of Thanksgiving and into Black Friday.
“Very cold air will make its way into the Northeast just in time for Thanksgiving and Black Friday. Most major cities along the I-95 corridor will rival coldest maximum temperatures for the date, including New York City, Boston, Providence, and Philadelphia.
Most cities will run 20 to 25 degrees below average for late November, and combined with breezy conditions, will make for brutally cold “feels like” temperatures even colder than the air temperature. This will make for an interesting dilemma for shoppers on the fence about heading out for Black Friday, with temperatures Thursday night in the single digits and teens for most.
With this increased cold risk, natural gas continues to be heavily influenced by weather model forecasts through the end of the month,” said Ed Vallee, head meteorologist at Vallee Weather Consulting.
The National Digital Forecast Database (NDFD) released new weather models that indicate the blast of arctic air could affect much of the mid-Atlantic and North East regions, threatening to keep America’s consuming herd indoors, crippling shopping intentions and keeping tens of millions of Americans away from their favorite retailer of choice.
“November is running more than 4°F below normal across the Lower 48. Unprecedented cold coming by Thanksgiving will turn this map dark purple across the Northeast,” said Ryan Maue of weathermodels.com.
“New York City has only had three Thanksgivings dating to 1870 when the high temperature failed to rise out of the 20s, according to National Weather Service statistics. The coldest was a high of 26 degrees on Nov. 28, 1901.
Forecast highs Thursday could be near that all-time record coldest high set almost 117 years ago.
In southern New England, Boston could come within a couple of degrees of its coldest Thanksgiving high of 24 degrees, also set Nov. 28, 1901.
Providence, Rhode Island, Philadelphia and Burlington, Vermont, may also see highs within striking distance of the coldest on record for Thanksgiving Day in each city.
Low temperatures Thanksgiving morning and Black Friday will likely be 15 to 25 degrees below average for late November.
The temperature for the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade in New York City is expected to be in the low- to mid-20s. It will feel even colder when you factor in the wind chill, possibly in the mid-teens.
A low temperature of 20 degrees Thursday morning would also be near the record coldest Thanksgiving low at New York City’s Central Park.
Elsewhere, low temperatures Thursday and Friday mornings will be in the single digits and lower teens across the interior Northeast. Closer to the coast, it will be in the teens or lower 20s.
A few cities may flirt with daily record lows for Nov. 22 (Thursday) or Nov. 23 (Friday).
This includes Albany, New York, and Providence, Rhode Island, where the daily record-low temperature Thursday is 9 degrees and 16 degrees, respectively.
Although it will be cold, the air will also be dry, which means there won’t be any snowfall to worry about Thursday and Friday,” said the Weather Channel.
With weather models pointing to record low temperatures, it has been no surprise that natural gas prices have been moving higher, besides OptionSellers.com and other funds who were recently blown out of their short positions when price popped almost 18% last Wednesday.
The Energy Information Administration reported that natural gas storage in the lower 48 states was below the five-year average as of October 31.
With some regions along the North East expected to smash 100-year lows in the coming days, it is also noted that the sun is currently entering one of the deepest Solar Minima since the 1800s when the last mini ice age was observed.
“The sun is entering one of the deepest Solar Minima of the Space Age,” wrote Dr. Tony Phillips just six weeks ago, on September 27, 2018. The lack of sunspots on our sun could bring about record cold temperatures, and perhaps even a mini ice age.
If the next few days are a habinger of what to expects, the US Northeast is going to have a brutal winter ahead, an excuse which Wall Street analysts will gladly use to explain why the economy is rapidly slowing and potentially throwing a wrench in any Fed plans to deviate from its tightening course if Jerome Powell once again assumes that it is not the economy, stupid, but the cold weather.

Atmosphere Compresses & Deserts Bloom as Both Hemispheres Break Record Cold
Atmospheric compression events occurring in all corners of the Earth. One of the end results is that deserts across the planet are blooming, no where more so than the Middle East and North Africa, fields of green carpet the landscape as far as the eye can see in drone shots, carpets of flowers are an endless tapestry of color and some of these flood events turn deserts into inland seas. Australia record cold and two months of rain in two hours, record cold USA, and the ferocity of colliding jet stream fronts is now visible in temperature anomaly maps.
