Wow! UK and USA simultaneously! Hmmm… is there a cosmic statement there?
UK weather: Environment Agency issues flood warnings for whole of England and Wales
With the UK suffering the worst band of winter storms in more than 20 years, the Environment Agency has been forced to issue flood warnings in every single region across England and Wales.
The agency currently has around 350 alerts in place across the country as a whole, including three severe warnings which indicate there is a “danger to life”.
Last night a flood siren warning of extreme danger to people and property was sounded in Dorset, as gales and tidal surges battered the coast.
The Environment Agency raised the alarm after its sea defences were breached at Chiswell Beach in Portland last night, following on from a severe flood warning in the area.
Dorset Police told families to move to an upstairs room facing away from the sea and arm themselves with flood kits.
The Met Office said a further band of heavy showers will hit the south and southeast today, and will continue to cause a localised flooding risk throughout Tuesday and into early Wednesday.
The disgraceful episode of Lysenkoism brings us global warming theory
Reality is not complying with the alarmism of the UN’s global warming models, just as it refused to do for Trofim Lysenko. Remember all that hysteria about melting polar ice caps and the disappearing ice floes for the cute polar bears? As of the end of March, the Antarctic ice cap was nearly one fourth larger than the average for the last 30 years. The Arctic ice cap had grown back to within 3% of its 30 year average. (The formerly declining Arctic ice was due to cyclically warm ocean currents). Global sea ice was greater than in March, 1980, more than 30 years ago, and also above the average since then.
Remember the alarm about the rising sea level? Yeah, that has been rising, as it has been since the end of the last ice age more than 10,000 years ago. Just exactly as it has been, at the same rate. And anyone you know that has been scared by this alarmist propaganda has been successfully played by whatever media the fool has been relying on.
Then there is the man caused, global warming, fingerprint that the U.N.’s models all showed would result in a hot spot of particularly large temperature increases in the upper troposphere above the tropics. But the incorruptible, satellite monitored, atmospheric temperature record shows no hot spot. That is further confirmed by modern weather balloons measuring atmospheric temperatures above the tropics. No hotspot. No fingerprint. No catastrophic, man caused global warming. QED.
Another snowfall record broken; global warming, eh?
Monster May snow buries Newfoundland
A record-smashing snowstorm has buried parts of Newfoundland under about 2 feet of snow.
There were no reports of serious damage or disruption.
Gander tallied a heavy, wet snowfall of 69 cm (7 inches) between Saturday morning and Sunday night, weather data accessed by AccuWeather.com showed. Of this amount, 46 cm fell (18 inches) within only 12 hours on Sunday. The snow depth reached at least 55 cm (22 inches) on Sunday and still stood at 51 cm on Monday morning.
The snowfall had a water equivalent of about 69 mm (2.7 inches), which amounts to the lion’s share of the normal May precipitation of 86 mm.
Global Cooling: Sudden European temperature plunge over the last decade… Are we on the brink of a Little Ice Age?
So since 2000 the CET shows an annual temperature diminution at the rate of -0.49°C/decade or -0.59°C in 12 years: this negates almost the entire CET temperature rise since 1850. Although this is a very short period, the extent of the climate change that has been observed since the turn of the millennium is remarkable. …
At ~10,500 years our current cooler but benign Holocene interglacial is coming towards its end and the reversion of our planet to a real ice age is foreseeable.
