Temperatures colder than parts of the Arctic Circle to hit the US: Record mild air across the UK replaced with wind and rain for Christmas

Temperatures humans shouldn't have to endure will hit parts of the US this week as the jet stream will deliver an Arctic hell and dangerous conditions with temperatures colder than parts of the Arctic Circle.
Christmas day will see a dip in the jet stream deliver an Arctic blast into the Plains and the Great Lakes.

“The core of the cold will be centred over the northern Plains, where temperatures up to 20 degrees Fahrenheit below late-December normals will be common,” said AccuWeather Meteorologist Renee Duff.

Much of North Dakota and Minnesota on northward into the Canadian Prairies will struggle to reach the single digits for highs through Wednesday. Cities like International Falls, Minnesota and Fargo, North Dakota will likely stay below zero degrees Fahrenheit until late week.

The last time Minneapolis had a temperature in the single digits on Christmas Day was in 1985 when the high was 8.

Government on Trial: Historic Lawsuit to Halt Oil Exploration Starts in Norway

Environmental organizations, political heavyweights and former ministers are among the plaintiffs in an unparalleled lawsuit against the Norwegian state in a bid to stop future oil exploration.

The lawsuit, which is expected to have far-reaching consequences for Norway's oil and gas industry, was filed by environmentalists Greenpeace and Nature and Youth, with the Grandparents Climate Campaign (featuring former Conservative Prime Minister Kåre Willoch) as an intermediary.

The plaintiffs contend that the government's June 2016 decision to allow oil drilling in ten vulnerable areas of the Barents Sea constitutes a breach of the Norwegian constitution and the Paris Agreement to stop climate change, which Norway has signed.

Ice work if you can get it: Giant dragon measuring 80-yards long and 20 wide is carved out of snow by 100 artists for a skiing festival in China

This incredible snow dragon measuring 80 yards long and 20 wide is stunning visitors to a ski resort in China - and it is not even finished yet.

The craftsmen began work on the giant sculpture in Changchun, Jilin Province, on December 18 and expect to be finished by the end of this month.

This should be just in time for the Jingyuetan Vasaloppet International Skiing Festival, which opens on January 4.

The dragon is shown with its front claws raised in the air and jagged teeth arching up into the sky and is being constructed by artists using ice picks and a mechanical digger.

They use ladders to access the higher reaches of the sculpture, all the while taking care not to leave any unsightly dents.

The Sun is Cooling Faster than Anyone Suspected

The danger from the Global Warming crowd is that they are misleading the entire world and preventing us from what is dangerously unfolding that sparks the rapid decline in civilization – GLOBAL COOLING. I previously warned that this is not my opinion, but simply our computer. If it were really conscious it would be running to store to buy heating pads. This year will be much colder for Europe than the last three. It will also be cold in the USA. We are in a global cooling period and all the data we have in our computer system warns that the earth is turning cold not warm.

Is climate change driving record snowfalls? Scientists blame global warming for DOUBLING the amount of snow atop an Alaskan mountain range

Snowfall on an Alaskan mountain range has more than doubled since the start of the industrial age, a new study has revealed.

The Alaska Range now has an average of 5.4 metres (18 feet) of snow per year - up from an average of 2.4 metres (eight feet) per year from 1600-1840.

According to the researchers, this increase in snowfall is evidence that climate change can trigger major increases in regional precipitation.

The Carnegie Council Calls for Global Governance to Regulate Geoengineering

By Derrick Broze

As the Carnegie Council calls for global governance to regulate climate engineering, advocates and opponents of the controversial technology prepare for a looming policy debate.

On December 8, the Carnegie Council released an essay calling for policymakers to invest resources into creating new forms of governance as a response to increasing calls for climate engineering, or geoengineering. The essay is part of a growing push for funding for research into the controversial science of modifying or engineering the climate, and a recent push towards global government which could regulate the technology...

Temperatures in Alaska warmed so rapidly this year that a computer rejected the data as FALSE

The US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) uses automated computers to gather temperature data.

Experts pre-installed an algorithm to automatically remove any false data caused by external factors such as faulty equipment.

The programme is designed to automatically keep the average temperature information as accurate as possible.

The extreme increase in temperature was so large that it triggered the data to be deleted.

Data from all of 2017 and some of 2016 was removed.

‘Snowflake students’ get University to apologize for calling snow white

University College London was forced to apologize after a “dreaming of a white campus” tweet was deemed racist by “snowflake students.” The tweet had been intended to let students know the campus was still open as some parts of Britain remained covered by 13 inches of snow.

The tweet said: “Dreaming of a white campus? Our campuses will be open and operating fully today, Monday 11 December, so please make your way in as planned. (We can’t guarantee snow but we’ll try!) #snowday #londonsnow.”

One twitter user replied: “You know who else dreamt of a white campus? Hitler, that’s who. Disgusting.” Kumail Jaffer, a PPE student at Warwick University urged UCL to “retract and apologize.” He added that if anyone does not understand why the comment is offensive, they should “look into the history of the oppression of the PoC [People of Color]," according to the Telegraph.

There could be lake-effect snow in south-central Pa. Tuesday into Wednesday, which is unusual, he said.

The area along I-80 could see a dusting to an inch. And it's a different story north of there, Samuel said.

"It may not stop snowing in northern Pennsylvania until next week. It looks like a very snowy pattern," he said.

Fake News: UK, U.S. Slip Down ‘Good Country’ Rankings… Run By a Globalist Group Pushing for ‘International’ Elections

Maybe you’ve seen the reports in the Guardian, the Times, the International Business Times, the Independent, Huffington Post, Russia Today, and the Irish Times about Brexit Britain and Trump’s America sliding down the “Good Country Index” rankings this year.

The study alleges that these nations are losing credibility as good international actors. But what the news reports don’t make clear is what the “Good Country Index” is, who it was started by, and what it hopes to achieve.

Simon Anholt — an honorary professor at the University of East Anglia — has made quite a career out of the platform, the criteria for which includes global co-operation on climate change, open border immigration, United Nations contributions, the number of refugees taken in, and international aid contributions.

Tidalgate: Climate Alarmists Caught Faking Sea Level Rise

The raw (unadjusted) data from three Indian Ocean gauges – Aden, Karachi and Mumbai – showed that local sea level trends in the last 140 years had been very gently rising, neutral or negative (ie sea levels had fallen).

But after the evidence had been adjusted by tidal records gatekeepers at the global databank Permanent Service for Mean Sea Level (PSMSL) it suddenly showed a sharp and dramatic rise.

The whistle was blown by two Australian scientists Dr. Albert Parker and Dr. Clifford Ollier in a paper for Earth Systems and Environment.

The paper – Is the Sea Level Stable at Aden, Yemen? – examines the discrepancies between raw and adjusted sea level data in Aden, Karachi and Mumbai.

Let’s be clear about this. Dr. Crockford does not deny climate change. She writes about polar bears and clears up some misconceptions being published about them. But because weblogs this paper’s authors don’t like link to Crockford, she is now labeled a ‘denialist.’ But again, the casual dismissal of her life’s work is more personal than professional.

Since the Kyoto agreement in 1997 to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, successive governments have created rules about how new and refurbished buildings must be insulated to reduce heat loss. In 2011 the Department for Energy and Climate Change (DECC) turned to the insulation industry for help, inviting representatives onto a Green Deal committee to come up with ways to push more insulation into homes. We discovered that of the 10 firms and construction industry groups on that committee, four were members of BRUFMA. One of them was Celotex, the firm whose plastic insulation would be fitted to the outside of Grenfell Tower four years later.

STUDY: Satellites Show No Acceleration In Global Warming For 23 Years

Global warming has not accelerated temperature rise in the bulk atmosphere in more than two decades, according to a new study funded by the Department of Energy.

“We indicated 23 years ago — in our 1994 Nature article — that climate models had the atmosphere’s sensitivity to CO2 much too high,” Christy said in a statement. “This recent paper bolsters that conclusion.”

The mysterious phenomenon that's making Britain shiver... and why it could bring both a White Christmas and a flu pandemic

Before he was nine years old, Charles Dickens had experienced six white Christmases. So it’s no surprise that the man credited with inventing some of the festive period’s best-loved traditions — most famously in A Christmas Carol — did so against a backdrop of snowy landscapes, frosted window panes and frozen lakes.

The winters of Dickens’s boyhood in the early 19th century were indeed exceptionally cold — which meteorologists speculate was due to the periodic global weather phenomenon we now know as La Nina.

Earlier this month, forecasters said that following an unusually warm October, November’s cold weather — some parts of the country had their first snowfall weeks ago — could lead to ‘a full La Nina event over the next few months’.
