And here's another article, this one from China, about the extreme COLD in the Northern Hemisphere again this winter! I remember seeing death toll figures in the hundreds last winter from the cold weather in Europe. I guess CO2 is a warming/cooling gas then, hey?? :-

China's coldest winter in decades at new low

http://abcnews.go.com/International/wir ... OyN3dGUy5k

Quote:
BEIJING (AP) -- China is experiencing unusual chills this winter with its national average temperature hitting the lowest in 28 years, and snow and ice have closed highways, canceled flights, stranded tourists and knocked out power in several provinces.

China Meteorological Administration on Friday said the national average was -3.8 degrees Celsius (25 degrees Fahrenheit) since late November, the coldest in nearly three decades.

The average temperature in northeast China dipped to -15.3 degrees C (4.5 degrees F), the coldest in 43 years, and dropped to a 42-year low of -7.4 degrees C (18.7 degrees F) in northern China.

In some areas - northeastern China, eastern Inner Mongolia, and north part of far-western Xinjiang province - the low has hit -40 degrees C (-40 degrees F), the administration said.

The state-run, English-language China Daily reported Friday that about 1,000 ships were stuck in ice in Laizhou Bay in eastern China's Bohai Sea.

The meteorological administration said Saturday that ice had covered 27,000 square meters (10,500 square miles) of the sea surface by Thursday, the most expansive since 2008 when authorities began to collect such data. The administration expects the ice to continue to grow.

In southwest China's Sichuan province, more than 1,000 tourists were stranded Wednesday in a scenic mountainous area because of icy road, the state-run Beijing News reported.

In southern China, snowstorms from Thursday night have disrupted air and road traffic.

In eastern China's Zhejiang province, at least eight flights were canceled at an airport in Hangzhou city on Thursday, and authorities told state media the airport might be closed if the snow should continue. Utility workers also rushed to restore power in parts of the province, according to state media.

Several highways, including some sections of the Beijing-Hong Kong-Macao Expressway in central China's Hunan province, were closed Friday because of icy condition, state media reported.

An airport was temporarily shut down in Nanchang city in Jiangxi province, as workers were trying to clear ice and snow from its runway, state media said.

The national meteorological administration said China is seeing dropping temperatures partly because of south-moving polar cold fronts, caused by melting polar ice from global warming. It said the air is moist and likely to dump heavy snow in China, Europe and North America.

On Saturday, the forecast by China's National Meteorological Center said southern China would have more snow and rain in the coming days and that icy rain could hit some regions.

California cold snap threatens citrus crop, strands motorists

By Brandon Lowrey

LOS ANGELES | Fri Jan 11, 2013 3:33pm EST

http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/01/ ... 3C20130111

Quote:
(Reuters) - An Arctic air mass sent temperatures plunging across California, forcing the 17-hour closure of a key interstate highway through the mountains north of Los Angeles and threatening citrus crops in the state's vast central valleys, authorities said on Friday.

Temperatures throughout the state fell by as much as 20 degrees Fahrenheit (11 degrees Celsius) below normal, allowing snow to accumulate at elevations as low as 1,500 feet, the National Weather Service reported.

Although no further snow was expected to fall over the weekend, temperatures were expected to continue to drop on Saturday before gradually warming into next week, the weather service said.

About 4 inches of snow fell on Thursday on a winding stretch of the Interstate 5 known as the Grapevine, which passes through mountains between Los Angeles and Bakersfield, prompting authorities to shut down the north-south artery for 17 hours beginning Thursday afternoon.

Stranded motorists packed motels on either side of the Grapevine overnight. California Highway Patrol officers reopened the roadway at about 9 a.m. local time on Friday and began escorting cars along the treacherous route, CHP Officer Mike Harris said.

Precise weather conditions along the Grapevine during the freeze were not recorded, but neighboring areas posted temperatures in the mid-20s Fahrenheit, said Stuart Seto, a forecaster for the National Weather Service.

In the San Joaquin Valley, a major agricultural area, low temperatures in the teens threatened to kill citrus crops, which are in danger of perishing whenever the mercury falls below 28 degrees, said meteorologist Jeff Barlow said.

The Weather Service alerted farmers to the danger so they could take precautions, but there may still be a heavy loss.

"They won't be able to save all of the crops," Barlow said. "This is going to be a pretty significant freeze event for the central California citrus crops."

In normally temperate San Diego, temperatures were expected to reach 39 degrees on Friday night, closer to the record low of 34 degrees set in 1888 than the normal 59 degrees, said Robert Balfour, a National Weather Service forecaster.

"The rest of the country is probably laughing at us, saying, ‘You call that cold?'" Balfour said.

Report shows UN admitting solar activity may play significant role in global warming

http://www.foxnews.com/science/2013/02/ ... in-global/

By Maxim Lott, Charles Couger Published February 01, 2013

Quote:
The Earth has been getting warmer -- but how much of that heat is due to greenhouse gas emissions and how much is due to natural causes?

A leaked report by a United Nations’ group dedicated to climate studies says that heat from the sun may play a larger role than previously thought.

“[Results] do suggest the possibility of a much larger impact of solar variations on the stratosphere than previously thought, and some studies have suggested that this may lead to significant regional impacts on climate,” reads a draft copy of a major, upcoming report from the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

The man who leaked the report, StopGreenSuicide blogger Alec Rawls, told FoxNews.com that the U.N.’s statements on solar activity were his main motivation for leaking the document.

“The public needs to know now how the main premises and conclusions of the IPCC story line have been undercut by the IPCC itself,” Rawls wrote on his website in December, when he first leaked the report.

Rawls blames the U.N. for burying its point about the effect of the sun in Chapter 11 of the report.

“Even after the IPCC acknowledges extensive evidence for ... solar forcing beyond what they included in their models, they still make no attempt to account for this omission in their predictions. ... It's insane,” he told FoxNews.com.

Some skeptical climatologists say that the statement in the U.N. draft report is important, but not game-changing.

“The solar component is real but not of sufficient magnitude to have driven most of the warming of the late 20th century,” Pat Michaels, the former president of the American Association of State Climatologists, and current director of the Center for the Study of Science at the Cato Institute, told FoxNews.com.

The U.N. report also says that the effect of solar activity will be “much smaller than the warming expected from increases in [man-made] greenhouse gases.”

An estimate from NASA said that solar variations caused 25 percent of the 1.1 degree Fahrenheit warming that has been observed over the past century.

But Michaels said that if the U.N. increases its estimates about how much the sun affects Earth’s temperatures, it might help the U.N. get its prediction models back on track. While the Earth warmed over the last two decades, it did so more slowly than the U.N. had predicted.

“Climate science has the problem of trying to explain why we are now in our 17th year without a significant warming trend. As a result, you are seeing many forecasts of warming for this century being ratcheted down,” he said.

Others say that the focus on solar activity distracts from the big picture -- the fact that the Earth is warming.

“I see climate contrarians try this trick almost every time a big new solar study comes out. They somehow tend to neglect mentioning that solar variation is smaller than the heat-trapping power of carbon dioxide,” Aaron Huertas of the Union of Concerned Scientists told FoxNews.com.

To back that up, Huertas points to data that show that solar activity and temperature rose together from 1880 until 1960, but that then, solar activity stopped increasing -- even as temperatures continued going up.

“The basic evidence is that solar activity has varied a bit while global temperature keeps going up,” Huertas said.

But Rawls said that while solar activity has indeed stopped increasing, the important thing is that it remains at a historically high level.

“The simplest way to put it is: If you put a pot on the stove at the maximum temperature, and leave it on at that temperature -- are you telling me that the pot won’t keep warming?”

Rawls worries that if solar activity falls, the effects could be dire.

“Unlike warming, cooling really is dangerous, regularly dropping the planet into hundred-thousand-year-long glacial periods.”

NASA has said that there is evidence that the most recent “Little Ice Age” was caused by a dip in solar activity.

“Almost no sunspots were observed on the sun's surface during the period from 1650 to 1715. This extended absence of solar activity may have been partly responsible for the Little Ice Age in Europe,” during which temperatures were colder by about 1.8 degrees F than they are today, NASA has reported.

But Huertas said that’s not what we should worry about at a time when the effects of warming are already being felt.

“Climate change is affecting weather all across the planet and when it comes to extreme weather, the strongest links are to coastal flooding [and] heat waves,” Huertas said.

“While climate skeptics are arguing on the Internet about drafts of the report, states like New York and New Jersey are working to help people rebuild their homes in ways that have a better chance of surviving more destructive storms and flooding in the future,” he said.

Looks like Moscow, Ru is getting hammered yet again. How about it webermaniac? Had enough of that crap yet? =;

Heaviest Snowfall in a Century Hits Moscow

05 February 2013 | Issue 5062
By Roland Oliphant

http://www.themoscowtimes.com/news/arti ... 75102.html

Quote:
The heaviest snowfall in a century brought Moscow and the surrounding region to a near standstill and left hundreds of people without power, officials said Tuesday.

And with snowfall set to continue at least until the end of the week, the authorities are bracing for more chaos on the roads.

"There hasn't been such a winter in 100 years," Pyotr Biryukov, deputy mayor for residential issues, said Tuesday in comments carried by Interfax. "The snow this year has already reached one and a half times the climatic norm," he said.

The capital has seen 216 centimeters of snow fall since the beginning of winter, Biryukov said.

Average snowfall in Moscow is 152 centimeters a year. Biryukov said the city saw 26 centimeters in the 24 hours preceding his Tuesday afternoon news conference and has seen 36 centimeters since the beginning of February.

The heavy snowfall that struck the city Monday quickly led to chaos on the roads. The Yandex Probki traffic monitoring service reached a full 10 points, and on Monday evening it issued the seldom-seen warning that "it's quicker to walk."

Moscow traffic police said Tuesday that they had counted more than 3,000 minor traffic accidents in the previous 24 hours, far exceeding the daily average for the city.

"There were 3,160 small traffic accidents in Moscow over the past day," a police spokesman said.

The average number of traffic accidents in the city is between 1,500 and 2,500 per day, he said.

Monday's unprecedented number of fender benders stems from traffic violations by drivers due to difficult conditions.

Snowfall is set to continue for the rest of the week but should slowly ease off, with forecasters predicting just 2 centimeters a day until Friday.

City Hall did not respond to requests for comment on its preparations for dealing with the snow, but Bityukov defended the city's handling of the situation.

He also denied that the city needs to hire more staff to clear snow.

"We have agreements with various contractors specifying when they should clear their area. If they don't, then we just don't pay them," he said in comments carried by Rossiskaya Gazeta.

"We all want everything cleared at once — roads, houses, your courtyard — but we have to choose what gets cleared first and what is cleared second," he said.

City workers cleared about 800,000 cubic meters of snow in the past day. It now takes three to four days to clear 7 centimeters of snowfall, a process that used to take a week in 2010, he said.

"Yesterday it snowed. Today we see the roads are clean," he said. "We can criticize, but traffic isn't stuck anywhere."

At the time he was speaking Tuesday afternoon, that was more or less true. Yandex Probki's traffic jam index had fallen to a less apocalyptic five points.

But that followed an extremely difficult night Monday, when there were estimated to be 3,500 kilometers of jams on the city's streets — roughly the distance between Moscow and Madrid.

Traffic experts said technical preparations were perfectly adequate, but they blamed at least some of the chaos on poor communications between City Hall and the public.

"In terms of technical preparation — the number and quality of staff and equipment devoted to clearing snow, and organization — we're really no worse than any other cold city in the world, be it Helsinki or Toronto," said Mikhail Blinkin, director of the Higher School of Economics' Institute of Transport Economics and Transport Policy.

"What is significantly worse is that in those cities mayors will come out and appeal to citizens not to use their cars when there's a heavy snow forecast," he added. "I've seen it time and again there, but never here. This is a question of citizenship, not technical preparation."

And it's not just Moscow that's struggling to cope.

About 1,500 residents of the Ivanovsk region were left without electricity after heavy snowfall knocked out power lines and substations, the Emergency Situations Ministry said.

In all, 26 towns and villages were affected by the blackout, which occurred because power lines snapped under the weight of the snow.

Here, "744 homes, 3 schools and two kindergartens were in the zone of the blackout as of 9:45 a.m. Moscow time," the Ivanovo branch of the ministry said in statement.

By Tuesday afternoon, workers were still struggling to restore power in 10 municipal districts.

Police reported more than 100 car crashes in a day of snowfall in the Tula region, while authorities in Yaroslavl region reported several delays to school buses and long-distance coach services.

About 300 heavy trucks were caught overnight in a traffic jam on the A107 highway, also known as the Small Ring Road, near the Moscow region village of Shishkin Les, police said.

"Within a few hours [of the snow starting], there were about 200 trucks on Kievskoye Shosse and 100 on Varshavskoye Shosse," a police spokesman said Tuesday afternoon, Interfax reported.

The trucks were helpless in the heavy snow and ice, and traffic didn't start moving again until the area had been swamped with grit and sand, meaning many were stuck until 3 a.m.

Changing to winter tires is an annual ritual for many Russian motorists, but it is not compulsory, though the authorities are currently considering making it so.

Blinkin, though, said he doubted the efficacy of such a measure.

"It's nonsense. What, change the tires and all the traffic jams will go away?" he asked rhetorically.

Whether or not Blinkin is right about the tires, City Hall would be well-advised to give the massive snowfall some serious thought. Scientists say such extreme weather is only likely to increase.

"The weather we've seen in the past couple of days completely fits with the tendency that was identified a couple of years ago, that we are going to to see much stronger, intensive bursts of precipitation in the future," said Alexei Kokorin, director of the climate and energy program at WWF Russia. "In the summer, we will probably see stronger bursts of rain."

"In Moscow, that causes problems for transportation," he said. "But in Central Asia and other places, it means flash flooding and very serious problems for agriculture."

Looks like Moscow, Ru isn't the only place thats getting hammered this winter!! And as if Super Storm Sandy wasn't enough, those poor souls in the Northeast USA will be getting it again only this time it's going to be up to 3 feet of snow.

Blizzard warning issued as Northeast braces for major snowfall

Published February 08, 2013 FoxNews.com

http://www.foxnews.com/weather/2013/02/ ... ter-storm/

Quote:
Forecasters say a massive blizzard poised to dump up to 3 feet of snow on the Northeast may be one for the record books and is following the same path as Superstorm Sandy, which devastated parts of the region less than six months ago.

It began snowing Friday morning in some areas, with the heaviest amounts expected to fall at night and into Saturday. Wind gusts are expected to reach up to 75 mph.

Widespread power failures were feared, along with high tides and flooding in much of the coastal areas still recovering from Superstorm Sandy in October.

Before the first snowflake had fallen, Boston, Providence, R.I., Hartford, Conn., and other New England cities canceled school Friday, and airlines scratched more than 3,700 flights through Saturday, with the disruptions from the blizzard certain to ripple across the U.S.

New York City’s main three airports, most domestic carriers planned to cease operations between 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. Friday, resuming after noon on Saturday afternoon.

At Boston’s Logan and other New England airports, most airlines were to cease operations between noon and 4 p.m. and would restart Saturday.

"This one doesn't come along every day. This is going to be a dangerous winter storm," said Alan Dunham, meteorologist for the National Weather Service in Taunton, Mass. "Wherever you need to get to, get there by Friday afternoon and don't plan on leaving."

Boston could see up to 3 feet of snow, while New York City was expecting 10 to 12 inches. Mayor Michael Bloomberg said plows and 250,000 tons of salt were being put on standby. To the south, Philadelphia was looking at a possible 2 to 5 inches.

"We hope forecasts are exaggerating the amount of snow, but you never can tell," Bloomberg said, adding that at least the bad weather is arriving on a weekend, when the traffic is lighter and snowplows can clean up the streets more easily.

Amtrak said its Northeast trains will stop running Friday afternoon. The organizers of New York's Fashion Week -- a closely watched series of fashion shows held under a big tent -- said they will have extra crews to help with snow removal and will turn up the heat and add an extra layer to the venue.

Blizzard warnings were posted for parts of New Jersey and New York's Long Island, as well as portions of Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Connecticut, including Hartford, New Haven, Conn., and Providence. The warnings extended into New Hampshire and Maine.

In New England, it could prove to be among the top 10 snowstorms in history, and perhaps even break Boston's record of 27.6 inches, set in 2003, forecasters said. The last major snowfall in southern New England was well over a year ago -- the Halloween storm of 2011.

Dunham said southern New England has seen less than half its normal snowfall this season, but "we're going to catch up in a heck of a hurry." He added: "Everybody's going to get plastered with snow."

Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick ordered non-emergency state workers to stay home Friday and urged private employers to do the same.

In the Whitman, a southeast Mass. town where up to 30 inches of snow is forecast, public work crews were cleaning crosswalk signs, trash barrels and anything else that might impede plows later.

“We’ve had instances where they have predicted something big and it’s petered out,” Dennis Smith, a DPW worker said.

“I don’t think this is going to be one of those times.”

Smith’s partner Bob Trumbull sounded a note of optimism, saying the relative lack of snow earlier this winter would make this storm easier to clean up.

“At least there is room for this snow. There are no snow banks so we will have a place to put it,” Trumbull said.

Diane Lopes was among the shoppers who packed a supermarket Thursday in the coastal fishing city of Gloucester, Mass. She said she went to a different grocery earlier in the day but it was too crowded. Lopes said she has strep throat and normally wouldn't leave the house but had to stock up on basic foods -- "and lots of wine."

She chuckled at the excitement the storm was creating in a place where snow is routine.

"Why are us New Englanders so crazy, right?" she said.

At a Shaw's supermarket in Belmont, Mass., Susan Lichtenstein stocked up, with memories of a 1978 blizzard on her mind. "This is panic shopping, so bread, milk, a snow shovel in case our snow shovel breaks," she said.

In New Hampshire, Dartmouth College student Evan Diamond and other members of the ski team were getting ready for races at the Ivy League school's winter carnival.

"We're pretty excited about it because this has been an unusual winter for us," he said. "We've been going back and forth between having really solid cold snaps and then the rain washing everything away."

But he said the snow might be too much of a good thing this weekend: "For skiing, we like to have a nice hard surface, so it will be kind of tough to get the hill ready."
Terrance Rodriguez, a doorman at a luxury apartment complex in Boston, took the forecast in stride.

"It's just another day in Boston. It's to be expected. We're in a town where it's going to snow," he said. "It's like doomsday prep. It doesn't need to be. People just take it to the extreme."

Well, this winter there's been record low temperatures and also massive snow storms in the northern hemisphere. More "global warming", hey!

3 Feet Of Snow Recorded In Some Parts; Thousands Without Power State-Wide

Officially A Killer Storm: 5 Dead In Connecticut

February 9, 2013 11:20 PM

http://newyork.cbslocal.com/2013/02/09/ ... snow-fall/

Quote:
DANBURY, Conn. (CBSNewYork) — A travel ban was lifted in Connecticut after 24 hours of orders to stay off the roads, but cleanup was far from over Saturday following the blizzard that left at least five people dead, and more than 3 feet of snow in some parts of the state.

On Saturday night, Gov. Dannel Malloy submitted a request for a presidential emergency declaration.

“As we continue with the recovery from this historic winter storm, I am asking the federal government to provide us assistance with this process,” Malloy said. ”If granted, this declaration would provide much needed help to our state.”

“Stay off the roads,” is still the message in the Nutmeg State. Parts of Connecticut were covered in dozens of inches of snow early Saturday, as a travel ban remained in effect until being lifted at 4 p.m.

A state of emergency remains in effect statewide.

A woman using a snowblower Friday evening was apparently hit by a car and killed in Prospect, Malloy said. The woman was believed to be 81 years old, but her identity was not released.

Also, a 73-year-old man was found dead of unknown causes in his driveway in Danbury, and a 49-year-old man apparently died while digging out his truck in Shelton and had to be taken away on a sled pulled by a snowmobile, according to a Hartford Courant report.

No information was immediately released on the other two deaths.

At a news conference late Saturday morning, Gov. Malloy said 270 National Guard troops were pressed into duty to assist with the blizzard aftermath.

There are many roads that are impassable or otherwise dangerous due to snow drifts or stalled cars, Malloy said.

“While we are lifting the ban on travel this afternoon at 4 p.m., I still want to urge residents to stay off the roads if at all possible,” Malloy later added in a news release. “Crews are out clearing roadways as we speak, but the fact is we are going to feel the impact of this storm for some time. The longer we can keep traffic out of town centers and off of our highways, the more effective our recovery effort will be. “

Malloy said having cars on the roads only serves to slow down the clean-up effort.

“They have to stop or move around a car,” Malloy said.

As of Saturday morning, Connecticut Light & Power reported 37,214 customers without power. That number was revised around 7 p.m. to a little more than 34,000, Malloy said.

The largest number of customers without power are in the southeast portion of the state, and CL&P has amassed resources in that part of the state.

CL&P officials said due to the high winds, they were not immediately going to send crews to restore power.

Meanwhile, the danger of traveling in Connecticut was so severe Saturday that non-essential ambulance calls were to be handled at the discretion of the agency that would be dispatching the ambulances.

If the non-essential callers could not be reached, the ambulances could choose to not respond immediately. But crews possibly could get to some callers on four-by-fours, Malloy said.

Malloy also advised residents to keep vents on the sides of houses clear since if they become blocked with snow, carbon monoxide could back into the house.

Anyone with a hydrant on his or her property was also asked to dig it out so that a response can be affected if a fire breaks out.

Westport First Selectman Gordon Joseloff said there were concerns that the area could see widespread flooding.

“Unfortunately, we have a little water over the road near the shore areas,” Joseloff told WCBS 880 Connecticut Bureau Chief Fran Schneidau. “But generally, the flooding at high tide was minimal. We’re very grateful for that.”

As CBS 2’s Lou Young reported, the snow had stopped by 7 a.m. in Danbury. But parts of central Connecticut were still seeing narrow bands of very intense snow as a result of the historic blizzard.

You're not likely to see this one in the "lamestream media" here in the good old USA! It just doesn't fit their agenda, otherwise known as the climate change hoax!

Could we face gas rationing? British gas reserves could run dry in 36 HOURS after freezing householders turn the heating up

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article ... ng-up.html


Quote:
Freezing Britain was last night facing the unprecedented prospect of gas rationing.
A combination of bitterly cold weather and pipeline failures has left the energy grid at breaking point.

The country has less than 36 hours of gas reserves remaining and one energy expert warned yesterday that if the cold snap continues, rationing is ‘inevitable’.

If this happens, businesses and power stations will be restricted first, but then householders will be ordered to cut down on the amount of gas they use for heating their homes.


Britain’s gas stores are dangerously low as unexpectedly low temperatures have forced people to keep their heating on.

The crisis deepened yesterday when a crucial undersea pipeline connecting Britain and Belgium shut down without warning, pushing the price of gas up by 50 per cent to a record high.

Ships bringing desperately needed supplies of liquefied natural gas (LNG) from Qatar are still more than two days away, and could be delayed further because of the bad weather.


The looming national energy crisis also threatens to push up household bills for hard-pressed families.

The Government admitted gas supplies were under pressure, but Downing Street said David Cameron was ‘confident’ that they would not run out. But energy analysts warned that with the freezing conditions set to last into next month the consequences were ‘worrying’.

Ann Robinson, analyst for uSwitch, said: ‘If this dreadful weather continues for the next two or three weeks we should be very worried, because if we get into a position where we do run out of gas there is not a lot that can be done in the short term.


‘Rationing would be inevitable, for businesses and domestic users and maybe for gas-powered electricity producers as well, so we might be looking at electricity rationing too.’ She said the Government’s response to the crisis had been ‘very complacent’.

Angelos Anastasiou, from investment bank Liberum Capital, added: ‘There’s a bit from the pipes and there’s LNG but that’s it. There isn’t any more. I would say rationing is a distinct possibility. We’re not there just yet, but it’s a distinct possibility.’

Energy Minister John Hayes said the issue was ‘a priority’ and confirmed he has held ‘discussions with industry and others about gas security’.

Michelle Mitchell, Age UK’s charity director general, highlighted fears for the elderly if the gas shortages become a reality.

She said: ‘This continuing bitter weather is a major threat to the health of older people, and older people need to know their gas supplies are guaranteed. Age UK would like the Government and the industry to offer them some public reassurance this weekend that the UK’s gas will continue to flow.’

The crisis was sparked early yesterday morning when a water pump failed at one of the four underwater pipelines that connect the UK and the Continent. The pipeline from Belgium, which has the capacity to supply around a fifth of the UK’s gas needs, was immediately shut down by operator Interconnector UK. The group said it ‘has a technical issue at its Bacton terminal which stopped gas flow into the UK’.

It began pumping gas at a reduced rate later in the morning, but had to shut operations again completely in the afternoon.

The full flow did not begin until late afternoon, and no one from Interconnector UK was last night able to say how much gas had been lost as a result of the outage.

The other pipelines – two from Norway and one from the Netherlands – were open during the day, although one is due to be shut down at the beginning of April for routine maintenance.

The daily price of gas rocketed to 150p a therm – up from Thursday’s price of 100p. It is the highest level ever seen in the UK gas markets, according to traders.

It came just hours after it emerged that the UK’s domestic gas stores have fallen to a new low after millions of households turned up their heating. The stores are now more than 90 per cent empty and have less than two days’ worth of gas remaining. They are forecast to be completely empty by early next month.


Analysts warned that higher gas prices now could push up long-term rates for next winter, adding 15 per cent, or more than £200, to the average family bill.

Apart from the North Sea, Britain’s only other source of gas comes from the volatile Gulf state of Qatar. The next delivery is not due for another two days, it is understood.

Ships can take two and a half weeks from leaving Qatar to arriving in Britain, and can often be delayed further by having to stop off to deliver at other ports.

Energy analyst Peter Atherton said: ‘When you run out of storage, National Grid will need to start reining demand back in.

‘You get cases where ships are told to turn around and go back because Japan is willing to pay more. We can get LNG here, but we will be bidding against the rest of the world. We can get it, but we will have to pay the price.’

National Grid has protocols for gas shortages, designed to stop households being affected immediately. Power stations which run on gas are the first to be rationed.

‘They can do that to keep the lights on because we have coal and oil-run power stations which can be ramped up to meet demand,’ said Mr Atherton.


But next month many of the UK’s coal and oil plants come offline to meet green regulations handed down by the EU, and will not be available as a stop-gap if another shortfall arises next winter.

After the power stations, heavy industry and factories will see gas use sanctioned. Only after that has been tried will other businesses be asked to reduce usage – with households last on the list to face rations.

‘The answer is that we need more storage,’ said Mr Atherton. ‘We need to have enough to get through a winter if something happens to the interconnector pipes. Can we get through the winter on our own supplies? Other European countries can, but we certainly can’t.’

A Department of Energy spokesman said: ‘In the unlikely event of a gas supply emergency, Government and industry have in place well-rehearsed plans to ensure that gas supplies can continue, so that gas consumers would not be cut off.’

Mr Hayes said: ‘Protracted cold weather increases demand, but the UK gas market is functioning well and our gas needs are continuing to be met. Gas storage could never be the whole answer, so to think purely in terms of how many days’ supply is in storage, is unwise. We have relied on a diverse range of sources for many years.’

But Joe Conlan, of the Inenco energy consultancy, said: ‘There is a very real prospect of running out, especially given the colder weather forecast for next week, the long, cold winter and disruptions to supply as a result of a very intensive period of maintenance in Norway.’

He warned there was still a risk customers might be asked to rein in their gas use next week.

His calculations suggest the UK has just one and half day’s gas supply in storage. He said: ‘The next week is critical.’
The Department for Work and Pensions has made £4million in cold weather payments to help vulnerable people pay their bills during March. Not a penny was paid this month last year.

And here's another story on this same winter storm there in the UK. Again, you won't see any mention of this here in the USA media!

Blizzards, 60mph gales and panic buying: 36 hours of snow chaos on the way

http://www.express.co.uk/news/uk/386129 ... on-the-way

Quote:
HEAVY snow is expected over the next 36 hours as Britain shivers on the coldest March weekend for 50 years. Up to 16ins will fall over high ground with several inches likely across much of the UK, the Met Office said last night.

Over 1,000 schools were shut and transport was disrupted as any hopes of spring were dashed by yet another onslaught of snow and flooding today as temperatures fell as low as -12C (10F).

Emergency services saw an early surge in weather-related call-outs as some parts of the country were hit by blizzard conditions. Government agencies issued a string of warnings urging the public to take care on the roads.

The South-west, which will escape the worst of the winter blast, faces flooding with up to 100mm of rain – almost two months’ worth – over the next 24 hours as yesterday's heavy rain continues.

In total The Environment Agency issued 12 flood warnings tonight across the country and 81 less serious flood alerts.

In east Cornwall emergency services were searching for a missing woman her partially property collapsed during heavy rainfall overnight.

It is believed the severe weather triggered a landslide, and while a dozen residents were evacuated Susan Norman has not been accounted for.

Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service said they believed the woman in her 60s is still in the building.

Further north, snow blanketed many parts with up to eight inches expected to hit the worst affected areas of north west England, north Wales and south west Scotland.

Higher areas could even see up to 16 inches, while bitterly cold gale-force winds create blizzard-like conditions and plunge temperatures down to well below freezing.

Over 1,500 homes in Cumbria had to cope without power and road closure was preveting access to some communites to carry out repair work.

Energy firm Electricity North West said they were considering using helicopters to transport engineers to conduct repairs around Cumbria.

Elsewhere, more than 28,000 homes and businesses in Northern Ireland were left freezing and without power today after snow, sleet and storm force winds hit the province.

Thousands of gritters were on standby last night as councils ­prepared for the “worst winter onslaught” of the year.

Officials advised people to avoid all but essential travel and the Met Office issued a level-3 cold weather health alert.

Darron Burness, the AA's head of special operations, said: "It's going to be a real witch's brew of driving wind, rain and snow, which will inevitably cause disruption on the roads.

"Drivers should be well prepared as even short journeys can quickly turn bad."

Forecaster Helen Chivers said: “It is looking absolutely atrocious and people should be prepared for disruption with very heavy snow on the way. It is going to be central and northern regions which will be worst hit to start with, and appalling conditions are likely.

“Very heavy snow will be accompanied by strong winds and virtually everywhere should be prepared for very severe weather.

“The South-west, which may escape the snow, will see heavy rain, with up to 100mm likely.”

Jonathan Powell, forecaster for Vantage Weather Services, said despite the official start of spring Britain faces the worst winter weather of the year.

Blizzards driven by 60mph gales will sweep across central and northern regions, bringing chaos to road, rail and air travel.

“Britain is on alert for what is undoubtedly going to be the worst onslaught of the winter,” he said.

“From Friday morning virtually the entire country is going to see extreme and severe weather with inches of snow on the way and strong gales driving devastating blizzards.

“This is going to last until Sunday, with the North and parts of central and western England in for an absolute deluge.”

The threat of extreme weather last night triggered reports of panic buying with winter essentials flying off supermarket shelves.

A spokesman for Sainsbury’s in Matlock, Derbyshire, said: “We’re extremely busy. Customers are stocking up and talking about buying more due to the snow.”

A Morrisons spokesman said: “It’s safe to say we’re busier than usual with people buying essentials.”

The Local Government Association said gritters and snowplough teams were out in force to keep roads as passable as possible.

Peter Box, chairman of the association’s Economy and Transport Board, said: “Council websites will be updated with information on weather, gritting routes, road conditions, school closures and bin collections.

“Leaflets have been sent to homes advising people about council services, driving in the snow, where grit bins are and how to clear their pavements.

“Council staff will be out and about over the next few days checking on the people they know to be vulnerable and delivering hot meals and portable heaters, collecting prescriptions, defrosting pipes, fixing frozen boilers and making sure they have what they need.”

While the snowstorm that has hit large parts of Northern Ireland has resulted in their World Cup qualifying match being postponed.

The fixture against Russia was due to take place at Belfast's Windsor Park tonight, but has been pushed forward to tomorrow afternoon.

Stadium staff had been working throughout the day to clear the pitch, but the date of the match was shifted after continued heavy snowfall.

Overnight in Yorkshire, Leeds Bradford International Airport suspended all flights due to "adverse weather conditions".

Gatwick airport said it was as “prepared as we can be” with volunteers on standby to make sure disruption is kept to a minimum. Heathrow said it had a “wellrehearsed” contingency plan in place. Leon Brown, forecaster for The Weather Channel, said Britainfaces the coldest March weekend since 1962 as strong winds whip up snowdrifts in the worst-hit areas.

“Much of the UK can expect to see some snow by Saturday, even the South-east and southern England,” he said.

“Heaviest falls will be over Wales and the Pennines with 12ins possible, plus signifi cant drifting over the mountains.”

Jim Dale, forecaster for British Weather Services, said: “Be in no doubt, parts of the UK are in for a spell of very severe weather indeed.

People really need to sit up and take notice. This is a very serious situation.”

The Environment Agency last night urged people living in the South-west to prepare for flooding and stay away from rivers and areas likely to flood.

Severe U.S. storm brings heavy snow, baseball-sized hail

By Mary Wisniewski

CHICAGO | Sat Mar 23, 2013 7:23pm EDT

http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/03/ ... 0P20130323

Quote:
(Reuters) - A major early spring storm brought heavy snow, severe thunderstorms and floods as it moved east across the United States on Saturday, closing highways, forcing flight cancellations and causing a pileup involving dozens of vehicles.

The weather system forced the cancellations of more than 100 flights in and out of Denver International Airport on Saturday and blowing and drifting snow closed several roads in Colorado, including Interstate 70 in both directions east of Denver to the Kansas state line.

"Travel on the eastern plains is strongly discouraged," said Mindy Crane, spokeswoman for the Colorado Department of Transportation. "It is snowing half an inch an hour with sustained winds of 25 miles an hour with gusts up to 40 miles an hour."

A chain-reaction crash involving some 50 vehicles and at least four tractor-trailers shut down Interstate 25 about 30 miles north of Denver for several hours on Saturday, the Colorado State Patrol said in a statement. A tanker involved in the accident burst into flames.


Several injured people were taken to the hospital but no fatalities were reported, police said.

Kyle Fredin, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service, said some counties in far eastern Colorado had seen a foot of snow by mid-afternoon.

Snowfall accumulations in the Denver metropolitan area could top 10 inches, with higher amounts in the foothills west of the city, he said.

The snow was expected to move east to Kansas City, St. Louis, Indianapolis and Columbus, Ohio, over the next 24 hours, before moving into the mid-Atlantic states, Kines said.

Rough weather also was forecast in the Gulf Coast region from Florida to eastern Texas throughout Saturday, with large hail, damaging winds and possible tornadoes, Kines said.

In northern Florida, the National Weather Service in Jacksonville had reports of high winds and possible tornado touchdowns, though no twisters have been confirmed, according to meteorologist Phil Peterson.

Peterson said the weather service also had reports of baseball-sized hail west of Lawtey, Florida, early in the afternoon. Lake City received two inches of heavy rain in 30 minutes, he said.

Wonder what the average Aussie thinks of this since their government had burst head long into the warming crap years ago costing them plenty because of this HOAX! But there are still many of that religion that think CO2 is a bad thing in spite of a ton of evidence to the contrary!

So this goes along with the report released last year by the East Anglia University in the UK stating that the data shows no warming for over 15 years!!

Twenty-year hiatus in rising temperatures has climate scientists puzzled!

DEBATE about the reality of a two-decade pause in global warming and what it means has made its way from the sceptical fringe to the mainstream.

In a lengthy article this week, The Economist magazine said if climate scientists were credit-rating agencies, then climate sensitivity - the way climate reacts to changes in carbon-dioxide levels - would be on negative watch but not yet downgraded.

Another paper published by leading climate scientist James Hansen, the head of NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies, says the lower than expected temperature rise between 2000 and the present could be explained by increased emissions from burning coal.

For Hansen the pause is a fact, but it's good news that probably won't last.

International Panel on Climate Change chairman Rajendra Pachauri recently told The Weekend Australian the hiatus would have to last 30 to 40 years "at least" to break the long-term warming trend.

This has to be #2 on the BULLSHiITE list second only to the original "Global Warming" HOAX!

These assholes are grasping for straws trying to find something to prove their FAILED "Warming" crap is real but I got news for them. I didn't believe the bull s**t the first time, and I don't believe this second one either, ie, melting glaciers are causing more ice in the Antartic?? WTF, does water only run from north to south or what?? Do these people not understand that THERE HAS BEEN NO WARMING IN OVER 15 YEARS PROVEN BY THEIR OWN DATA?? Unfreaking believable!!

When I read these quotes it brought back memories of Chicken Little, ie, The Sky Is Falling! But for those of you who may be too young to remember or have never heard, here's some quotes from days gone by that were made by supposedly "educated" people of their day. This is much like what we've seen in recent years with the warming crap crowd.

Enjoy!



Quote:
“...civilization will end within 15 or 30 years unless immediate action is taken against problems facing mankind,” biologist George Wald, Harvard University, April 19, 1970.

By 1995, “...somewhere between 75 and 85 percent of all the species of living animals will be extinct.” Sen. Gaylord Nelson, quoting Dr. S. Dillon Ripley, Look magazine, April 1970.

Because of increased dust, cloud cover and water vapor “...the planet will cool, the water vapor will fall and freeze, and a new Ice Age will be born,” Newsweek magazine, January 26, 1970.

The world will be “...eleven degrees colder in the year 2000. This is about twice what it would take to put us into an ice age,” Kenneth Watt, speaking at Swarthmore University, April 19, 1970.

“We are in an environmental crisis which threatens the survival of this nation, and of the world as a suitable place of human habitation,” biologist Barry Commoner, University of Washington, writing in the journalEnvironment, April 1970.

“Man must stop pollution and conserve his resources, not merely to enhance existence but to save the race from the intolerable deteriorations and possible extinction,” The New York Times editorial, April 20, 1970.

“By 1985, air pollution will have reduced the amount of sunlight reaching earth by one half...” Life magazine, January 1970.

“Population will inevitably and completely outstrip whatever small increases in food supplies we make,” Paul Ehrlich, interview in Mademoiselle magazine, April 1970.

“...air pollution...is certainly going to take hundreds of thousands of lives in the next few years alone,” Paul Ehrlich, interview in Mademoiselle magazine, April 1970.

Ehrlich also predicted that in 1973, 200,000 Americans would die from air pollution, and that by 1980 the life expectancy of Americans would be 42 years.

“It is already too late to avoid mass starvation,” Earth Day organizer Denis Hayes, The Living Wilderness, Spring 1970.

“By the year 2000...the entire world, with the exception of Western Europe, North America and Australia, will be in famine,” Peter Gunter, North Texas State University, The Living Wilderness, Spring 1970.

Good read here: http://stevengoddard.wordpress.com/2013 ... s-history/

Too much stuff to copy and paste so you'll have to go read it for yourself!! And yes, it's worth the time to go read it!

I remember reading back a few years ago where there were scientists in Russia that were predicting that we were headed for another "mini" ice age! Of course the "warmers" scoffed at that prediction citing their "hockey stick" graph, which turned out to be a rather LARGE part of their hoax BTW!

Ennywho, here's a little tidbit from those Russian Scientists who are again predicting a LONG cooling trend of the Earth caused by.........wait for it........much LESS activity from the SUN!!!

Cooling in the Arctic: what to expect?

22 April 2013

http://english.ruvr.ru/2013_04_22/Cooli ... to-expect/

Quote:
Global warming which has been the subject of so many discussions in recent years, may give way to global cooling. According to scientists from the Pulkovo Observatory in St.Petersburg, solar activity is waning, so the average yearly temperature will begin to decline as well. Scientists from Britain and the US chime in saying that forecasts for global cooling are far from groundless. Some experts warn that a change in the climate may affect the ambitious projects for the exploration of the Arctic that have been launched by many countries.

Just recently, experts said that the Arctic ice cover was becoming thinner while journalists warned that the oncoming global warming would make it possible to grow oranges in the north of Siberia. Now, they say a cold spell will set in. Apparently, this will not occur overnight, Yuri Nagovitsyn of the Pulkovo Observatory, says.

"Journalists say the entire process is very simple: once solar activity declines, the temperature drops. But besides solar activity, the climate is influenced by other factors, including the lithosphere, the atmosphere, the ocean, the glaciers. The share of solar activity in climate change is only 20%. This means that sun’s activity could trigger certain changes whereas the actual climate changing process takes place on the Earth".

Solar activity follows different cycles, including an 11-year cycle, a 90-year cycle and a 200-year cycle. Yuri Nagovitsyn comments.

"Evidently, solar activity is on the decrease. The 11-year cycle doesn’t bring about considerable climate change – only 1-2%. The impact of the 200-year cycle is greater – up to 50%. In this respect, we could be in for a cooling period that lasts 200-250 years. The period of low solar activity could start in 2030-2040 but it won’t be as pervasive as in the late 17th century".

Even though pessimists say global cooling will hamper exploration of the Arctic, experts say it won’t. Climate change and the resulting increase in the thickness of the Arctic ice cover pose no obstacles to the extraction of oil and gas on the Arctic shelf. As oil and gas reserves of the Arctic sea shelf are estimated to be billions of tons, countries are demonstrating more interest in the development of the Arctic. Climate change will also have no impact on the Northern Sea Route, which makes it possible to cut trade routes between Europe, Asia and America. Professor Igor Davidenko comments.

"The Northern Sea Route has never opened so early or closed so late over the past 30 years. Last year saw a cargo transit record – more than five million tons. The first Chinese icebreaker sailed along the Northern Sea Route in 2012. China plans it to handle up to 15% of its exports".

As Russia steps up efforts to upgrade its icebreaker fleet, new-generation icebreakers are set to arrive in the years to come. No climate changes will thus be able to impede an increase in shipping traffic via the Northern Sea Route.

Well now. Al Gore made another of his big "warming" speeches earlier this week and low and behold here we have yet another example that the planet is NOT warming at all! Oh, and note that some areas did get as much as a foot of snow from this storm, which is headed East BTW!

May Day snow storm slams Midwest

Published May 01, 2013
Associated Press

http://www.foxnews.com/weather/2013/05/ ... o-and-wyo/

Quote:

DENVER – People in parts of Colorado and Wyoming pulled puffy jackets, hats and umbrellas out of the closet again Wednesday for another round of wet spring snow.

The May Day snow storm was making travel difficult on Interstate 70 in Colorado's mountains and along Interstate 80 in southeastern Wyoming, but the snow wasn't having a major impact on Denver's airport, though there have been de-icing delays.

Nearly 3 feet of snow is possible in the foothills and mountains of northern Colorado while around a foot is expected at lower elevations in parts of both states. By midday, over a foot fell at Rocky Mountain National Park. The heavy snow caused power and heat outages there and in Cheyenne, which received 15 inches of snow by noon Wednesday. West of Cheyenne, 20 inches fell near Buford, while Casper saw 4 inches of snow.

Parts of the Midwest were also getting rare May snow.

South Dakota's largest city, Sioux Falls, got its first May snowfall in 37 years. The city received 1.5 inches of snow by late morning.

A winter storm warning was also in effect for parts of Minnesota and Wisconsin. Snow fell in parts of Nebraska, and western Iowa was expecting snow between Wednesday night and Thursday morning.

The storm is welcome in Colorado and Wyoming because it boosts the snowpack that provides the region's water supply. Both states are in a drought but have benefited from several rounds of spring snow. However, the recent storms have largely missed southwestern Colorado, which remains dry and at risk for wildfires.

About 5 inches were forecast for Denver, where the snow was making the roads a sloppy mess. The snow wasn't sticking much to the pavement, still warm after recent temperatures in the 70s, but it clung to grassy areas and flowers.

Denver native Chris Lujan said he's never worn a top coat, scarf and hat on May 1st before. Greg Notz just put his hood up and wasn't fazed.

"I expect this. Yup. It's better than living where it's warm and dry and nice all the time. At least we get a variety," he said.

Snow in May hits Denver roughly once every three years. July and August are the only months that snow hasn't been recorded there, National Weather Service forecaster David Barjenbruch said.
