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.

Dozens of ships stuck in Arctic as ice freezes early in reverse of recent warming winters

Cue the climate cult rebuttal, “See! Lockdown’s work!”

Tallbloke's Talkshop

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.

The Shameful Abuse Of Children Via Climate Alarm Indoctrination

“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…

EYE ROLL: NY Times Hypes Children’s Climate Crusade To Dismantle Racism, Sexism

Impressionable children, a lucrative commodity revered by all great dictators gone by.

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.

COP 26 Climate Contrast: Poverty Versus Private Jets

“ 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…

South Pole froze over in coldest winter on record

Inconvenient. Aren’t the poles meant to warm first according to AGW theory?
And, we’ve recorded a current 40 year cooling trend at the South Pole? Hmmm.

Antarctica’s frigid winter temperatures are in contrast to trends in the rest of the world, which overall recorded its fourth hottest summer, says LiveScience.

Between April and September, a research station sitting on a high plateau in Antarctica, registered an average temperature of minus 78 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 61 degrees Celsius).

That’s the coldest temperature recorded since record keeping began in 1957, and about 4.5 F (2.5 C) lower than the most recent 30-year average, according to The Washington Post.

Dead-Calm Weather Killing ‘Inevitable’ Renewable Energy ‘Transition’

“Dead-calm Weather Kills Energy”, perhaps a more apt headline. Net-Zero-Energy-poverty, here we come…

It’s almost as if this is all by design. 🤔

Dead-Calm Weather Killing ‘Inevitable’ Renewable Energy‘Transition’

October 3, 2021bystopthesethings2 Comments

Wind power is, by definition, a wholly weather-dependent power source. So, it should come as no surprise that – whenever a burst of calm-weather hits – those charged with responsibility for delivering power, as and when we need it, scramble to obtain it from any convenient and, more importantly, reliable source. Which is why Germany and the UK have reverted to reliance on their ‘dreaded’ and purportedly ‘dirty’ coal-fired power plants.

Back in January this year, the Germansmandated the closure of 11 coal-fired power plants(with a total combined capacity of 4.7GW). But the legislative shutdown barely lasted a week, with all of those plants being hastily brought back online in response to an outbreak of, you guessed it, calm weather.

Likewise, the Brits have been forced to bring old (thought to be redundant) coal-fired power plants…

Plentiful Arctic Ice Sept. 2021

2021 Arctic sea-ice levels are currently higher than the 14-year average.
How inconvenient!
Especially on the eve of the latest (anti-human) UN climate COP gab-fest to be held in Glasgow.
Will they dare discuss recent abundant Arctic sea-ice levels that defy all known UN climate models?
The better question may be, do they ever discuss actual science and data anymore? The answer to that question is, of course, no. ‘Science’, ‘data’, and ‘climate’ diverged from rational discourse decades ago when the empirical data began diverging away from UN alarmist model predictions.
The only time they utter the word ‘science’ is when they are lying to you.
This latest sea-ice data, coupled with decdades of failed Arctic sea-ice predictions proves this as fact: https://climatism.wordpress.com/2019/01/25/climate-dud-predictions-ice-free-arctic-prophesies-by-the-97-consensus-and-compliant-mainstream-media/

Science Matters

September daily extents are now fully reported and the 2021 September monthly results can be compared with those of the previous 14 years.  MASIE showed 2021 at 5.2M km2  and SII was close behind, reaching 4.9M for the month.  Analysis below shows that the 2021 Minimum was 1/2 Wadham ( 1M km2) higher than the 14 year average, and 1¼ Wadhams more than 2007

In August, 4.4M km2 was the median estimate for the September monthly average extent from the SIPN (Sea Ice Prediction Network) who use the reports from SII (Sea Ice Index), the NASA team satellite product from passive microwave sensors. The SII actual ice extent was 1/2 Wadham higher.

The graph below shows September comparisons through day 273 (Sept. 30).

Note that both MASIE and SII started the month higher than average, hit bottom earlier and then increased the surplus. SII tracked much lower up to ~400k…

Could Scotland’s Unwanted Wind Turbines Be Turned Into Playparks?

“Could Scotland’s unwanted wind turbines be turned into playparks?”

Absoultely! With more than 13.9 million trees felled (massacred) in Scotland for windmill development from 2000–2019 there appears to be ample room for playparks and beyond! https://climatism.wordpress.com/2020/02/23/scotlands-net-zero-forest-management-program/

There may even be ample room to facilitate future UN COP meetings next to, said, kiddies playparks if “Net Zero” requires such intesne and massive deforeastion to house industrial wind and solar ‘playparks’.

Oh, the irony… kids and globalist bureaucrats all playing (and paying) together in the future playparks of denuded-forest-gulags.

Windy Standard wind farm, Scotland [credit: RWE.com] Ideas, opinions, feedback etc. are invited here. It could be said they’ve already had decades to think about this, but any negativity will no doubt be ignored.

One wind farm company is looking for imaginative ways to repurpose turbines at the end of their lives, says BBC News.

When Windy Standard was built in Dumfries and Galloway in the mid-1990s, it was Scotland’s second largest wind farm.

But what happens to the original turbines? Owner Fred Olsen Renewables wants to find creative and sustainable ways to ensure they do not end up in…

Finally a Real Crisis: Shortage of Carbon Dioxide

“Acute food shortages were feared last night after high gas prices forced most of Britain’s commercial production of carbon dioxide to shut down.

The closure of two fertiliser plants in northern England and others in Europe has left the food and drink industry facing a shortage of carbon dioxide, which is a byproduct of fertiliser manufacturing. The gas is critical to the production and transport of a range of products, from meat to bread, beer and fizzy drinks.”

The twisted irony of climate wokeism, on full display; a shortage of life-sustaining CO2 caused by extremist climate policies that aim to ‘eliminate’ life-sustaining CO2 in the form of cheap, reliable energy!

Not to mention the hard reality of the swift, tangible and disastrous effects to society of constantly ‘bending the knee’ to the anti-human climate lobby, on full display.
