Record cold.


Not even halfway through the month, Yellowknife has already broken records 3 times
Katherine Barton - CBC News

September 14, 2018


According to Environment Canada, Yellowknife has already broken cold records for three days, and it's not even halfway through September.

Why Yellowknife's summer was a bummer
June rainfall breaks records in Yellowknife
On Sept. 9, a record low of –2 C was reached, beating the old record of –1.1 C set in 2004.

Two days later, on Sept. 11, another record low was hit at –2 C, beating the record of –1.7 C in 1972. That day also broke another record for the coldest daytime temperature of 3.2 C, beating the 1970 record of 5 C.

Sept. 12 also set a record low daytime high of 2.6 C, beating 3.3 C set way back in 1964.

CBC North meteorologist Ashley Brauweiler said it's all about the jet stream — that conveyor belt of winds that moves weather systems around the world.

"The jet stream split and a cold pocket of air from the Arctic extended further south," she said. "We've been sitting like that for most of September."

Brauweiler said that pattern doesn't look like it's going to change much over the next two weeks.

The normal maximum temperature for this time of year is 10 C, while the minimum is 4 C. On Thursday the average temperature sat at 4 C, and Friday is looking at a high of 3 C and snow.

"I pulled out my jacket a little earlier than normal," Brauweiler laughed. "I had to part with my flip-flops sooner than I wanted to."

Cold front follows dismal summer
This chilly September follows a dismal summer in the N.W.T. capital. June broke records for rainfall, and many people were lamenting the summer that wasn't. Brauweiler said the jet stream was weaker than usual this summer, which means weather patterns didn't move as much.

At least Yellowknife isn't the only part of Canada dealing with an early winter; Alberta got a dumping of snow this week. There were snowfall warnings in effect for Grande Prairie, Grande Cache and Jasper.

That province has the N.W.T. to thank.

Ugh: Alberta hunkers down for September snowstorm
September snowstorm could dump 15 cm on parts of Alberta
Brauweiler said the system was caused by Arctic air from the N.W.T. that headed south, making for late summer snow and frigid temperatures in Alberta.

But it's not all bad news.

"The berries have been good," Brauweiler offered. "The frost makes them sweeter!"

Yep - climate change is a bastard isn't it?



Meanwhile:

That's great for Cleveland.

I hope you're ready for expensive food.

You're losing the argument. For every odd cold spell there is a hot spell that more than cancels it out. Climate change means more weather extremes; just as predicted. Every time you post an extreme you prove climate change is actually happening. BTW - there is another possible category 4 hurricane heading for the US.

Nothing cancels out the millions upon millions of tonnes of food lost to snow in western Canada.

Hot or cold weather are all caused by globul warming


And I'll bet that our local Fakebook expert can find a meme to prove it!

Adjust those temps ASAP!


They did that in New York State last year. Record breaking cold weather suddenly weren't record breaking at all, in fact it was warmer than usual after the Alarmists tampered with the actual data. And now that last year's winter is over, the fake data stands as fact to back up their ideology.

And random internet morons like yourself can't disprove multiple extremes of climate in the last few decades. Two Category 4 hurricanes hitting the US so far in 2018 and three last year? Go ahead, say that five once-in-a-hundred year storms in two years is normal.

No - and that is exactly the point. Have you figured it out yet? Once again, thanks for being so easy to refute.

In medieval Europe, witches were blamed for weather woes.

Nowadays, litter and motor vehicles are blamed for weather woes.

Five hundred years from now and people will be looking at today's Global Warmists in the same way as we today look at those people of the medieval times who thought bad weather was caused by witches.

And whenever a Warmist tells you that hurricanes have increased in number in recent years and it's all down to Global Warming, just repeat this to them from the UN Climate Panel:

"Current datasets indicate no significant observed trends in global tropical cyclone frequency over the past century."

For the United States, the trend of all land-falling hurricanes has been falling since 1900, as has that of major hurricanes. In the 51 years from 1915, Florida and the Atlantic coast were hit by 19 major hurricanes. In the 51 years to 2016, just seven. In the last 11 years, only two hurricanes greater than category 3 hit the continental USA — a record low since 1900. From 1915 to 1926, 12 hit.

We're the agricultural states of emergency lifted in Alberta today?

When there is a food crisis of this scale from cold you look pretty pretty silly standing there with your dick in the wind as you declare how amazing you look in the new clothes you are wearing.

You get a new bag or a new bong or both? Notice the collective never corrects another member of the collective.


Pete, were you not doing a chicken little thing a bit ago promoting a 60% loss of crops?? Wrong again it seems. You get that part tight every time you make a post, lol.

The harvest problems are particularly acute in central and northern areas of the grain belt and farmers in those regions should see harvest windows appear.
“This will be an opportunity for farmers who are delayed … they will be able to do that over the next seven days,” Hasell said.

What good are windows if your crop is green, flattened or soaked?

What grades will come off.

No.1 Red Spring?

Actually I was wrong. It was 25 - broke the old record by more than 2 degrees.

The crops were being harvested, is that the kind of farmer you were, harvesting in the spring and planting in the fall. If you ran it like you would a horse they would both be dead in a week.


Say a field was flattened and left in the field, the next spring the seed would sprout and the field would need nothing more and a crop would be harvested that coming fall.



Let the people eat the 40% that was harvested and the lower grades can go to 4 legged critters like always. In a famine all the people from town would be doing the harvest by hand.

Ignore the global warming hysteria: hurricanes are not getting worse

Matt Ridley



Nothing to do with global warming

Matt Ridley
20 October 2018
The Spectator

When I land on the east coast of America, people tell me they’ve never met a Trump voter. When I land in the middle, as I did last week in Kentucky, I meet lots. I chatted with my driver, who did not like Trump at first, but would vote twice for his re-election if he could, because of the jobs boom and the Brett Kavanaugh hearings. He’s a retired salesman who tutors kids from poor backgrounds in reading and maths. ‘I guess that makes me a conservative,’ he says.

I had to lecture in semi-darkness in Louisville, after a power cut plunged most of the university into darkness. I timed it so that just at the moment when the power company had promised the lights would come back on, I had reached the bit where I said that artificial light is now 60,000 times cheaper than in 1800, in terms of the amount of time you have to work to earn a given quantity of light — a calculation by the economist Bill Nordhaus, who won the Nobel Prize the day before my talk. But it stayed dark, and stiflingly hot.

That day Hurricane Michael slammed into Florida, causing devastation and killing 26 people. It had the third lowest recorded atmospheric pressure (919 millibars) of any hurricane to make landfall in America. The lowest (892mb) was the Labor Day hurricane of 1935, which killed 423. Yet the media continues to imply that recent hurricanes are linked to climate change, as if they would go away if we stopped driving cars: ‘The Hurricanes, and Climate-Change Questions, Keep Coming. Yes, They’re Linked’, said a New York Times headline on Thursday. I find almost nobody knows that there is no upward trend in the frequency or strength of such cyclones over the last four decades — a fact reconfirmed in the latest UN report last week. Globally, deaths from floods, droughts and storms are down by 98 per cent in a century, not because of less bad weather, but because of better technology and forecasting.

Donald Trump now says of climate change: ‘I don’t think it’s a hoax, I think there’s probably a difference. But I don’t know that it’s man-made.’ The climate activist Eric Holthaus said: ‘The world’s top scientists just gave rigorous backing to systematically dismantle capitalism.’ Both are wrong. The truth is that climate change is happening, but more slowly than expected. It’s now 30 years since James Hansen of Nasa raised the alarm and, as climate scientist Pat Michaels and hurricane expert Ryan Maue have pointed out, ‘it’s time to acknowledge that the rapid warming he predicted isn’t happening’. Our own government’s climate-change committee, and the hysterical BBC, should take note.

At a meeting in California I attended a remarkable talk by Hugh Herr, who is a double amputee developing new bionic limbs at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. By attaching people’s leg muscles to each other during an amputation, he has reduced both the phantom pain and the deadness of their limbs. Robotic, motorised ankle prostheses can pick up signals from the muscles and enable the person to lift, roll and tap their ‘feet’ again. He showed a video of a patient climbing the sheer cliff in the Cayman Islands where he fell and lost a leg some years before, using his robotic foot to cling to crevices in the rock.

An afternoon whale-watching off Santa Barbara proved almost ridiculously productive. A mother humpback whale and her calf decided to spend the afternoon seeing who could jump higher out of the water, while a thousand common dolphins joined in. Globally, humpback whale numbers have increased from 10,000 in the 1960s to 80,000 today. They are not bothered by the fact that the waters off Santa Barbara are stained when calm with thin oil slicks. It’s entirely natural: 10,000 gallons of oil oozes into the water every day in a six-mile stretch just off the beach, from seepages on the ocean floor.

Also on the boat was Oskar Eustis, artistic director of New York’s Public Theater and one of the people behind Hamilton. He tells a fascinating story of what came out of the moment when the audience booed vice-president Mike Pence at a showing of the musical in 2016. Hundreds of thousands of pro-Trump Americans signed a petition to boycott the show, but instead of patronising them as philistines, Eustis realised that most of these people would never get to see it anyway. ‘They aren’t boycotting us,’ he says, ‘we’re boycotting them’ — by making theatre an exclusive preserve of the bi-coastal elite that does not address the concerns or come to the towns of middle America. He is now taking Lynn Nottage’s Sweat, about job loss and drug addiction in the Rust Belt, for free to community centres in the heart of the country, and reactions have been spectacular. An encouraging example of the two Americas reconnecting. Britain needs this too.
