The BBC says ‘Customers and an Oasis cover band are trapped at the Tan Hill Inn, near Keld, after heavy snowfall.’ It’s still only November, and the Met Office has forecast a mild winter. In fact parts of Scotland and the English North East also had wintry conditions with all kinds of damage going on.

A number of people had to sleep on the floor of Britain’s highest pub after Storm Arwen battered Yorkshire.
Twenty people, including an Oasis tribute band, were unable to leave the Tan Hill Inn in the Yorkshire Dales after being snowed in on Friday.
Elsewhere in the region, strong winds and snow have caused power cuts, fallen tress and travel disruption.

Cue the climate cult rebuttal, “See! Lockdown’s work!”
Arctic sea ice [image credit: cbc.ca] Where are the ‘rapidly warming winters’ this time round? It seems global warming is behaving badly, in parts of the Arctic at least.
– – –
Shipping firms blame the Russian Met office for a forecast that failed to predict the early ice, says the Telegraph.
More than two dozen cargo vessels are stuck in Russia’s Arctic ice, waiting for ice-breakers to come to their rescue, after an inaccurate forecast from the country’s Met Office.
Maritime traffic in the Northern Sea Route has been on the rise in recent years as rapidly warming winters reduce ice cover, and Russia invests in its Arctic ports in preparation for a further boom.
But this year several segments of the Northern Sea Route froze up about a fortnight earlier than usual, catching many ships unawares.

“Ours may become the first civilization destroyed, not by the power of our enemies, but by the ignorance of our teachers and the dangerous nonsense they are teaching our children.” — Thomas Sowell
Long read, though some excellent science directly contradicting the hysterical alarmism and pseudoscientific eco-propaganda that we are all, unfortunately, bombarded with 24/7/365.

Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it.
Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumoured by many.
Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders.
Hindu Prince Gautama Siddhartha. (563-483 BCE)
Climate science is complex and inter-disciplinary. When anyone challenges the alarmist claims of “climate catastrophe” or “anthropogenic global warming” (s)he is often met with the banal accusation of “not being a climate scientist.” Not surprisingly, it has proved impossible to locate that mythical “climate scientist” who has equal expertise in oceanography, atmospheric physics, meteorology, astronomy, paleoclimate, hydrology, volcanism, geology, solar physics, climate history and other climate-related disciplines.
Research in all these areas is ongoing and necessary and we should reflect on the words of Donald Rumsfeld (1932-2021) when, in 2002, he said:
“There are known knowns; there are things we…

The United Nations “climate summit” in Glasgow, known as COP26, continued to draw promotional coverage in the New York Times. Saturday’s story focused on the youth movement: “Unmoved by Climate Promises, Activists Hit Glasgow’s Streets.”
Reporters Megan Specia and Stephen Castle committed 1,400 words to the Times’ latest climate change children’s crusade, again with no opposing facts or opinions to dilute the mix of left-wing zeal masquerading as youthful righteousness, chucking journalistic rigor in favor of leftist propaganda.
Thousands of climate activists from across the world have descended this week on the Scottish city of Glasgow, demanding that nations gathering for a global climate conference produce real, meaningful change.
And some of the strongest and most urgent calls for action have come from young protesters who claim that the world they are inheriting is teetering on the brink of a climate catastrophe.

“ It is cruel that the COP26 attendees guzzle fossil fuels for a week’s trip yet deny the use of same fossil fuel for life-saving purposes. The poverty-stricken people do not have any of the privileges that the COP26 attendees take for granted.” 🎯
By Vijay Raj Jayaraj~
It is that time of the year when the global attention turns towards United Nation’s Conference of Parties, their flagship climate summit attended by global leaders.
This year’s conference, which takes place between 31 Oct, 2021 –12 Nov, 2021, is expected to have plenty of discussion on the Net Zero program, a strategy that is already embraced by many nations.
But these climate conferences are also infamous for the grand hypocrisy displayed.
Private Jets to Talk Emission Reduction
You simple cannot make this stuff up! Hundreds of private jets descend upon every city that hosts the UN COP conference, which in principle is a direct contradiction to the purpose behind the event.
Despite the hypocrisy pointed out about their gas guzzling private jets, the attendees have not stopped using their private jets.
This essentially entails that the darling of media—ie, the politicians and celebrities who…
