Exposed: Dem Leaders Used COVID Relief Funds For Climate Change Programs

States across the nation have budget surpluses, including federal Coronavirus stimulus payments, and many governors are using the money for projects to fight so-called climate change.

The excess cash is from tax collection and post-lockdown consumer spending, and governors of both red and blue states are directing funds to improve protection from harsh weather, which Democrats and the press blame on human activity and fossil fuels.

Here we go again? 2 more winter storms could be brewing

Get ready for the possibility of more impactful winter weather. That's the message for Americans living in parts of the eastern United States who just dealt with a major winter storm that dropped more than a foot of snow in some places.

AccuWeather forecasters on Monday were watching for more chances of snow and other wintry weather to break out across portions of the eastern United States, just after a winter storm spent the weekend making a mess of places from the Tennessee Valley through the Southeast and up the Eastern Seaboard into New England.

Another wave of Arctic air will advance southeastward from Canada Wednesday into Thursday following a fleeting stretch of higher temperatures that will provide the chance for a minor thaw in some of the storm-hit regions.

'Significant icing' and treacherous travel conditions slam the Southeast as thousands lose power in the bitter cold

A brutal winter storm walloping much of the Southeast has brought a trio of rare sights: freezing rain, snow and ice. And the Northeast is up next.

Snow has fallen as far south as Florida, with the National Weather Service in Mobile, Alabama, tweeting a Pensacola, Florida, resident's video of flurries at his home and traces reported in nearby Walnut Hill.

Winter weather alerts stretch nearly 1,000 miles from Georgia to Maine on Sunday, covering as many as 80 million people, CNN meteorologists said.

Meanwhile, nearly three million people in the Northeast are under high wind warnings, including in New York City and Boston. Winds gusting between 40 and 50 mph are possible -- which could lead to power outages -- while some parts of Maine could see gusts up to 65 mph.

Powerful winter storm bears down on 100 million Americans: 'Saskatchewan Screamer' could dump up to 18 inches of snow as it blasts across the South and Mid-Atlantic

A powerful winter storm with more than 100 million Americans in its path is expected to slam large swaths of the South and Mid-Atlantic on Sunday and into Monday.

The mountainous Appalachians will likely see the worst of the storm, with snow totals of up to 18 inches, but the impact could be widespread and severe as far south as Atlanta, where snow is rare and roads are notoriously difficult to clear.

Snow is also expected in parts of North Carolina, Tennessee, Kentucky, Ohio, Virginia, Maryland and West Virginia from the powerful weather system barreling in from Canada known as a 'Saskatchewan screamer.'

Yachts To Be Exempt From EU's Carbon Pricing Plan

If there is anyone still confused why ESG, and the entire "green" movement is one giant, boiling cauldron of lies, hypocrisy and fraud, read on.

Last summer, we reported that the European Commission - that murder of career bureaucrats - has proposed exempting private jets, the one most polluting form of transportation, from the planned EU jet fuel tax. A draft indicated that the tax would be phased-in for passenger flights, including ones that carry cargo. Private jets will enjoy an exemption through classification of "business aviation" as the use of aircraft by firms for carriage of passengers or goods as an "aid to the conduct of their business", if generally considered not for public hire. It gets better: a further exemption is given for "pleasure" flights whereby an aircraft is used for "personal or recreational" purposes not associated with a business or professional use.

US Gov't Spent $1.1B On Failed Carbon Capture Projects In A Decade

The U.S. Department of Energy has spent $1.1 billion on 11 carbon capture projects at coal-fired power plants and industrial facilities since 2009, most of which turned out to be failures and were never built, the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) said in a recent report.

The Department of Energy provided almost $684 million to eight projects for carbon capture at coal plants, only one of which resulted in an operational facility, the GAO found. Three projects, including two prior to receiving funding, were withdrawn, and one was built and entered operations, but halted operations in 2020 due to changing economic conditions. The DOE terminated funding agreements with the other four projects prior to construction.

Coldest ARCTIC BLAST of the season sets the Northeast and Upper Midwest in a DEEP FREEZE – Extremely dangerous driving conditions

Frigid conditions are on their way to the northeastern United States this week after a powerful cold front sweeps through the region.

Bitter cold and high pressure are likely to arrive in the North Central states on Monday, with forecast temperatures in the middle teens in Chicago. This time of year the Windy City usually has afternoon temperatures just around freezing.

Cities up north, like Duluth, Minnesota and Grand Forks, North Dakota, won’t have temperatures rise above 0 F all day on Monday. Daily temperature departures across the Upper Midwest could be easily 10-20 degrees Fahrenheit below normal on Monday, and gusty winds will allow conditions to feel even colder.

Winter Storm in Eastern US Shuts Schools, Cancels Flights

A winter storm dumped more than a half a foot of snow in parts of the eastern United States on Friday, forcing schools and federal government offices to close and snarling air traffic two days after a blizzard shut down a major highway in Virginia.

Winter storm warnings were in effect until midday for an area reaching from Washington north into Maine, with local snowfall rates expected to exceed 1 inch (3 cm) an hour, the National Weather Service said.

The storm left some parts of Kentucky, Virginia, Pennsylvania, New York and Maryland under 6 to 8 inches (15 to 20 cm) of snow. Coastal New England was hit hardest as some towns in Connecticut and Massachusetts saw more than a foot (30 cm) of snow fall on Thursday and into Friday, the weather service said.

Winter storm to impact areas from Mid-South to New England with heavy snow and freezing rain, U.S.

Another winter storm is expected to impact areas from the Mid-South to the central and southern Appalachians on Thursday into Thursday night, January 6, 2022, before tracking along the Northeast coast on Friday.

Several inches of heavy snow and a zone of mixed precipitation, including freezing rain, is likely to cause travel disruptions and hazardous to potentially dangerous road conditions from the Mid-South to the southern and central Appalachians on Thursday and Thursday night, NWS Weather Prediction Center warns.

Accumulating snow, heavy in places, is likely as the system moves through the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast Thursday night into Friday, January 7.

There remains uncertainty in the track and potential snow amounts, particularly for the Northeast and New England.

A wave of low pressure is forecast to develop along an arctic front draped across the Deep South by Thursday, January 6, NWS forecaster Santorelli noted.1

“Decarbonization Terraforming” of Planet Earth Is Now Under Way… Giant Machines to be Installed in Iowa to Suck “Life Molecules” Out of the Atmosphere and Cause Global Crops to Fail

The decarbonization terraforming of planet Earth is now under way. A new project has already been launched that will install mega machines across five U.S. states to harvest “life molecules” out of the atmosphere in an effort to shut down photosynthesis and unleash global food crop failures that destroy human civilization.

Farmland is already being seized in Iowa via eminent domain to build the mechanical infrastructure that will render Earth’s atmosphere inhospitable to plant life, animal life and human life, if it is allowed to continue to operate.

It’s almost like a scene ripped right out of the film Oblivion, where giant ocean harvesting machines sucked the water off the planet, abandoning the remaining human survivors on a barren, dead world that was ransacked by aliens. But in this case, the planet’s air is being stripped of carbon, the “God element” that is the very basis of life on Earth.

People have been stuck on I-95 for damn near a whole day

Imagine merging onto the Interstate to make your way home, same as you do every day. The sun sets. It rises again. You are still on the Interstate. You’ve barely moved. Everything around you is the same, and there is no end in sight.

It sounds like a Stephen King novel, but it’s actually the nightmare that hundreds of drivers experienced on Interstate 95 in Virginia on Monday. A crash, rapid snowfall, and general lack of winter preparedness appears to have combined to create the perfect storm for a surreal situation that has trapped people in their cars overnight, with no relief in sight.

Drivers fret about food and fuel while stranded on highway

There was no food, water or sleep for Susan Phalen as she spent a frigid night inside her car stopped on Interstate 95 in Virginia. Meera Rao and her husband were only 100 feet past an exit but were unable to move for 16 hours.

Sen. Tim Kaine was on his way to Washington when a seemingly simple commute stretched into a 21-hour ordeal that became “a kind of survival project.”

They were among hundreds of people who got stranded on the East Coast's main north-south highway in freezing temperatures after a winter storm snarled traffic and left some drivers stuck in place for as much as a full day.

The problems began Monday morning when a truck jackknifed on I-95, triggering a chain reaction as other vehicles lost control, state police said. Eventually lanes in both directions became blocked across a 40-mile stretch of the highway between Richmond and the nation's capital at a time when snow was falling around 2 inches an hour.

Study Confirms Southern Ocean is Absorbing Carbon

New observations from research aircraft indicate that the Southern Ocean absorbs more carbon from the atmosphere than it releases, confirming that it is a strong carbon sink and an important buffer for the effects of human-caused greenhouse gas emissions. Previous research and modeling had left researchers uncertain about how much atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) gets absorbed by the chilly waters circling the Antarctic continent.

In a NASA-supported study published in Science in December 2021, scientists used aircraft observations of atmospheric carbon dioxide to “show that the annual net flux of carbon into the ocean south of 45°S is large, with stronger summertime uptake and less wintertime outgassing than other recent observations have indicated.” They found that the waters in the region absorbed roughly 0.53 more petagrams (530 million metric tons) of carbon than they released each year.

Motorists have been stranded on a major interstate in Virginia since last night

Drivers have been stranded for hours on Interstate 95 in eastern Virginia -- some from Monday into Tuesday morning -- because of a severe winter storm that has sent authorities scrambling to clear a path.

The vehicles were stuck on portions of a 50-mile stretch of I-95 in the Fredericksburg area, between Richmond and Washington, DC, partly because of disabled trucks blocking the way in snowy and icy conditions, the Virginia Department of Transportation said.

Among those stranded in the area: US Sen. Tim Kaine of Virginia, who said he was still stuck in traffic at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday -- 19 hours after starting his drive. He did not specify what road he was on.

"I started my normal 2 hour drive to DC at 1pm yesterday. 19 hours later, I'm still not near the Capitol," Kaine tweeted, posting a picture from behind a windshield, showing three tractors ahead.

UK Inches Closer To Eliminating Private Car Ownership

UK Government Transport Minister Trudy Harrison recently spoke at a mobility conference, addressing the future of personal mobility. In her comments, she said it was necessary to ditch the "20th-century thinking centred around private vehicle ownership and towards greater flexibility, with personal choice and low carbon shared transport." That’s right, she said the quiet part loud and showed the hand of a growing number of government officials.

Harrison went on to praise not only public transportation but also bike share services, e-scooters, and ride sharing platforms. All of these are supposed to tune down how much carbon the UK is emitting into the atmosphere. As with all choices, this comes at a cost, particularly for those living in rural areas.

Lake Tahoe tourists snowed in as winter storm forces closure of I-80, Highway 50

For the third day in a row, I-80 is closed due to blizzard conditions in the Sierra.

Highway 50 was also closed for several hours, and reopened around 10 p.m. Monday to drivers who have chains on their tires.

There is still no timetable from Caltrans on when I-80 will reopen.

Many Bay Area residents who had been hoping to come back are stuck. The snow is still falling and once the highways are cleared, then trees and power poles must be cleared.

“That’s the snow. Up to the top of the doorframe,” said Brentwood resident Mike Smallwood.

Smallwood and his family are snowed in with feet of snow outside of the vacation home they’re renting.

“Yesterday snowpocalypse happened! Of course, I grew up driving in snow and those kind of things but I’ve never ever, I’m going to tell you, I’ve never seen anything like this in my life,” says Smallwood.

2021 Was an Outstanding Year For Eco Crackpots And Hypocrites

With COP26 dominating the headlines it is hardly a surprise that 2021 has been another vintage year for eco crackpots and hypocrites.

The Foreign Minister of Tuvalu caused a stir by warning of rising sea levels and delivering his speech in a foot of water. Although the Tuvalu islands have gained in size recently, the Foreign Minister avoided a charge of hypocrisy since his photo-op was an obviously sincere attempt to shakedown gullible western taxpayers.

Globalist Corporations Begin Seizing Farmland in America Under Eminent Domain to Halt Food Production in the Name of Fighting Climate Change

If our own government isn’t jacking up inflation with lousy fiscal and economic policies as well as out-of-control spending, leave it to billionaire global corporatists — with the full backing of the Biden regime –to set us up for major food production shortages over the hoax of ‘human-caused climate change.’

As reported by Humans Are Free, the ‘climate change’ hoaxers are having an effect on the world’s youth, and that will lead to more control over the world’s population, including Americans, if left to continue along the same trajectory. Consider:

— The United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s most recent report was met with a great deal of alarm.

— Citing the report, the BBC claimed that it represented “code red for humanity.”

— The New York Times chimed in, claiming (without context), “A Hotter Future Is Certain” (and it might be, but that doesn’t mean humans are causing it).

Global Coal Power Demand On Track For Record As Green Energy Transition Crumbles

There's no question that the 'greenification' of the global economy has returned many industrial countries to coal in 2021. New data from the International Energy Agency (IEA) shows that the amount of electricity generated worldwide from coal is on track to hit a record high.

IEA's Coal 2021 report says global power generation from coal soared 9% in 2021 to an all-time high of 10,350 terawatt-hours. The rebound comes amid a rash of green policies and stupid political choices, such as decommissioning oil and gas-fired power plants and fossil fuel exploitation projects, ironically resulting in an energy crisis worldwide.

"The rebound is being driven by this year's rapid economic recovery, which has pushed up electricity demand much faster than low-carbon supplies can keep up," IEA said. Also, the dramatic rise in natural gas prices forced power plants to source coal as a cheaper alternative.

ROSS CLARK: It’s madness that burning wood shipped in from America is counted as green energy

My bet is that when you hear the term ‘renewable energy’ the first thing that pops into your head is images of wind turbines or solar panels.

What you don’t think of is the chimneys of Drax Power Station in South Yorkshire pumping out clouds of smoke from the burning of wood pellets sourced from trees felled thousands of miles away in North America.

Yet as 50 MPs of all parties pointed out in a letter to the business and energy secretary Kwasi Kwarteng this week, government policy perversely counts this scenario - which happens day after day at Britain’s biggest power station - as a zero-carbon form of energy.

The MPs, led by Conservative Peter Bottomley, Father of the House of Commons, have demanded that the Government withdraws subsidies for wood burning - and stops trying to pretend it is contributing to Britain’s efforts to become ‘net zero’ by 2050.

POWER OUTAGE? TOO BAD. CALIFORNIA JUST BANNED THE SALE OF GAS-POWERED GENERATORS, LAWNMOWERS, & LEAF BLOWERS

In an effort to limit greenhouse gas emissions, the California Air Resources Board (CARB) voted this month to ban the sale of new off-road engines such as those found in leaf blowers, lawn mowers and other equipment by 2024. The ruling also bans portable generators by requiring new models to meet more stringent standards in 2024 and meet zero-emission standards starting in 2028.

The decision by the board follows an executive order issued by California Governor and covid tyrant, Gavin Newsom (D) to bar the sale of gas-powered lawn equipment to curb emissions.

“Today’s action by the Board addresses these small but highly polluting engines. It is a significant step towards improving air quality in the state, and will definitely help us meet stringent federal air quality standards,” CARB chair Liane Randolph said in a statement. “It will also essentially eliminate exposure to harmful fumes for equipment operators and anyone nearby.”

Russia explains why it vetoed climate change resolution at UN

Russia has vetoed a draft UN Security Council (UNSC) resolution, linking climate change to security threats. Russia's ambassador to the body claimed the document would have set a dangerously one-sided approach to future conflicts.

The UNSC voted on the draft resolution, tabled by temporary members Ireland and Niger, on Monday. The proposal, co-sponsored by over 100 nations, called upon the UN secretary-general to make climate-related risks “a central component” of conflict prevention, while “incorporating information on the security implications of climate change” to make the council “pay due regard to any root causes of conflict or risk multipliers.”

While the draft was supported by the majority of UNSC members, it was vetoed by Russia, with another permanent member, China, abstaining. Among the temporary invitees, India was the only country to vote against the draft. Between them, the three countries are home to close to 40% of the world's population.

Heavy snowfall wreaks havoc in Serbia, leaving tens of thousands without power

Heavy snowfall hit much of Serbia on December 12, 2021, causing traffic chaos, leaving communities cut off and some 90 000 customers without power.

Much of western Serbia was left without electricity after heavy snowfall hit the country on December 12. Authorities warned residents to postpone unnecessary travel and to conserve power.

Heavy wet snow was reported in the capital Belgrade, where several trees fell under the weight of heavy snow, damaging cars and buildings.1 Several people had to be rescued after being trapped in their damaged vehicles.

Several flights from and to the capital's main airport were canceled because of the weather conditions and a brief power cut to the main terminal.

In addition, a highway leading to the airport was closed for several hours because of a traffic jam caused by the snowfall.

Long-duration storm system to produce heavy snow across much of the U.S. West

A prolonged Atmospheric River will produce heavy snow across much of the U.S. West through Wednesday, December 15, 2021. Snowfall of 60 - 150 cm (2 - 5 feet) or more is likely in the Sierra Nevada, with 30 - 90 cm (1 - 3 feet) expected across much of the western terrain. This will lead to dangerous travel through the mountain passes, NWS Weather Prediction Center warns.

Ongoing Atmospheric River will bring heavy precipitation to much of the Western United States today, before expanding into the Great Basin tomorrow.

Upper-level energy and a plume of moisture will impact the weather over the West Coast, with a developing upper-level low beginning to move onshore over the Pacific Northwest overnight Monday into Tuesday, December 13 into 14, 2021, NWS forecaster Ziegenfelder noted.1

Therefore, the claim by Greens climate spokesman Lorentz Tovatt that Russia is to blame for high electricity prices was perceived as derogatory and inciting hatred.

The Swedish Greens Party has raised eyebrows by claiming that it is not the country's politicians who are responsible for the nation's energy market and the high prices currently dominating it.

Greens climate policy spokesperson Lorentz Tovatt said he understood his compatriots who are angry that they cannot afford to heat their homes, but said that Russia was to blame.

"But then you have to remember that the anger should be directed at Russia. It is they who have put us in this situation and our dependence on their gas", Lorentz Tovatt told the newspaper Expressen.

Jerusalem: Palestinians facing displacement to create 'green space'

On a narrow street in the Wadi Yasul area of Silwan, just south of the Old City of Jerusalem, children play beside a map of Palestine painted on the walls around them.

Depicting their town alongside liberation slogans, the mural tells a story of decades of resistance in a place whose residents, living in “unlicensed” houses, now face the prospect of having their homes demolished.

For over 20 years, the Jerusalem municipality has harassed the Palestinian residents of Wadi Yasul, who have grown accustomed to the dreadful infrastructure that defines life in their part of the city.

The situation has intensified of late. On 14 November, the Israeli municipal court in Jerusalem issued a decision to demolish 84 houses in Wadi Yasul under the pretext of expanding al-Salam forest. The land on which the houses are built is supposedly designated "green space".

Biden blames Kentucky tornado damage on 'climate change' to score political points

Like a broken-down vaudeville performer of old, Joe Biden has just a few acts in his repertoire and he’s sticking to them. One of those acts that he drags act as often as possible is climate change. So it was that, after the terrible damage when a tornado devastated Mayfield, Kentucky, Biden immediately said that the tornado is proof of global warming. (Other Democrats piled on with the same message.) However, the reality is that extreme weather events are getting less frequent.

More than 40 tornadoes touched down in a six-state region on Friday night, with the greatest damage centered on Mayfield, Kentucky. As of this writing, the death toll stands at 70 but it’s expected to rise as collapsed buildings are excavated. The disaster was a reminder that Nature is the most powerful force on earth.

“A Season of Shivers” Predicted for the U.S.

Brrr! The 2022 Old Farmer’s Almanac comes with a winter warning: Prepare for a “Season of Shivers.” This winter will be punctuated by positively bone-chilling, below-average temperatures across most of the United States.

“This coming winter could well be one of the longest and coldest that we’ve seen in years,” says Janice Stillman, editor of The Old Farmer’s Almanac. For 230 years, the Almanac has been helping readers to prepare for winter’s worst with its 80 percent–accurate weather forecasts.

In some places, the super cold of the coming winter will also bring lots of snow. This extreme wintry mix is expected in areas of New England as well as throughout the Ohio Valley, in northern portions of the Deep South, and in southeast New Mexico.

"Potential Polar Vortex Event" Could Spark Bullish Reversal In NatGas 

Since mid-October, U.S. natural gas futures have been beaten down 40% as the narrative of colder weather and tight supplies quickly flipped and crushed bullish traders. As the Northern Hemisphere winter is less than two weeks away, new weather models suggest "significantly colder" temperatures could return for parts of the U.S. later this month into early 2022.

Meteorologists at private weather forecasting firm BAMWX expect a bullish setup for natgas futures. They say the narrative is flipping from warmer weather to the complete opposite as an Arctic polar vortex could plunge parts of the U.S. into a much colder weather pattern in January than today's currently mild, above-trend temperatures.

Scientists Are Breeding Low-Emission Sheep

“In a bid to tackle climate change, scientists have teamed up with New Zealand farmers to try and make sheep a little less gassy,” writes Joe Pinkstone in an article for the Daily Mail.

“Sheep, much like cows, produce large amounts of methane over the course of their lifetime through flatulence and burping. The greenhouse gas is one of the leading causes of global warming, making up around 16 per cent of all emissions worldwide.” “Livestock emissions are the leading cause of greenhouse gases in New Zealand.”

“Using selective breeding techniques, scientists managed to breed a new type of sheep that produces ten per cent less of the problematic gas” and researchers in the UK are using CT scanners to assess the quality of a ram, as reported in the article.

“With the first generation of sheep, scientists wanted to find out whether methane production was a trait coded in the animals’ genetics.”

Cows cause 30% of methane gas emissions, Israeli team plans to reduce it

NRS Impact, Ben-Gurion University and the Volcani Center recently established a joint effort to minimize global warming through microbiome technology that will reduce methane emissions – of cows.

“We are in a state of emergency,” said Sam Salman, chairman and CEO of Impact NRS. “The atmosphere is in danger, as are both our health and animal welfare. It’s like a candle burning on both sides.”

Today, around 30% of methane emissions are due to gas emissions from around 1.5 billion cows that are being used to produce milk and meat. The sustenance is necessary, Salman said, but the enormous damage being done to the atmosphere is not.

Storm Barra to impact Ireland and UK with strong winds, heavy rain and snow

A deep low-pressure area moving in from the Atlantic Ocean this week has been named Storm Barra by Met Éireann on Sunday, December 5, 2021, due to the level of impacts expected for the Republic of Ireland. After impacting Ireland, Barra will bring strong winds and rain to the United Kingdom, with the rain turning to snow across northern England and Scotland. Barra is the second named storm of the 2021/22 season, which runs from September 2021 through the end of August 2022.

As the system moves in from the west, the strongest winds and impacts are expected to affect the Republic of Ireland, according to the UK Met Office.1

Barra is expected to affect Ireland on Tuesday, December 7, and for a time on Wednesday, December 8. Multiple hazards will be associated with this system, Met Éireann said.2

Danske Bank Slaps 'ESG' Label On 95% Of Its Funds As Top Banker Speaks Out Against "Greenwashing"

One of the most disturbing developments on Wall Street in recent years is how the "green cult" has managed to infiltrate the culture, forcing firms to drum up ESG-branded offerings or risk losing clients to better-prepared rivals.

But like any other fad, the shift to ESG, and the pressure investors are putting on "dirty" oil and gas companies (not to mention coal) has had side effects that are more serious, and others that are more or less benign.

In the "serious blowback" camp is the fact that the backlash against traditional energy companies and the new orientation in Washington has helped drive inflationary pressures to their highest level in 3 decades (more on that here) by weighing on US supplies of crude oil.

The truth is there simply aren't enough truly "green" assets to go around, which is why Wall Street is scrambling to label any old company "green" based sometimes on little more than promises.

Europe’s imminent winter energy crisis could have serious political consequences

With temperatures falling and gas prices rising, much of Europe is drifting into a perfect storm. Supply shortages, inflation, green policies and ideological opposition to Russia are creating an energy crisis.
As a result, power outages, stunted economic recovery and political fallout could have ramifications across the continent. In the longer term, the failure of EU policymakers will undermine energy security, make its industries less competitive, and have a negative impact on Europe’s cohesion and role in the world.

Coming frost

Efforts by the US and EU to borrow and spend their way to recovery are failing. Growing debt and money printing are fueling inflation with a predictable impact on energy prices. America’s recent and drastic inflation of the money supply was unnecessarily reckless, given the country was already recovering from Covid-19 lockdowns.

Finnish Electricity Prices Jump 5x Amid Unseasonably Cold Weather And Worsening Energy Crisis

Finland has succumbed to the energy crisis as households and businesses early this week paid a mind-numbing €422 per MWh (including taxes), or about five times higher than a year ago, according to data from the Nord Pool electricity exchange.

The Northern European nation bordering Sweden, Norway, and Russia is energy-dependent, meaning it must import high volumes of fossil fuels, such as petroleum and natural gas. Domestic sources of power production include thermal, nuclear, and hydropower plants.

Energy experts told RT News that soaring natural gas prices in Central Europe attributed to skyrocketing power prices. Experts warned of very little relief for Finnish households and businesses who may experience heightened electricity costs until next summer.

Let Them Eat Volts!

Once upon a time – it wasn’t all that long ago – the Democrat Party was at least nominally a populist party, ostensibly opposed to politics of the elites, which the GOP was said to represent. Is there a better measure of how these roles have reversed than the pushing of electric cars by Democratic elitists such as the Biden Thing’s secretary of transportation, Pete Buttigieg?

He glibly advises average Americans who are having a time paying $3.40 for a gallon of gas that cost them $2.20 just before he and the Biden Thing took over the apparatus of government from a Republican to deal with it by getting rid of their gas-burning car in favor of an electric car.

“They will never have to worry about gas prices again,” he says.

The problem there, of course, is that electric cars cost even more than it costs to fuel a not-electric car at $3.40 per gallon.

Or even $5.

Brutal cold wave hits Europe with lowest temperatures in 40 years – Energy prices soar to new record

Let’s talk about global warming… Or better said GLOBAL COOLING! A brutal cold wave is currently sweeping across Europe, bringing tons of SNOW, powerful WINDS triggering widespread POWER OUTAGES and devastating several countries in Europe and Scandinavia with lows that haven’t been seen since 1980 in Sweden.

Sweden has had the lowest temperature in November since 1980 with a polar wave sweeping Western Europe. Same in Ivalo, Finnish Lapland, where thermometer were at -22ºC as well as in Norway.

Look: It’s Snowing In Ann Arbor For Michigan, Ohio State Game

As if today’s marquee matchup between No. 2 Ohio State and No. 6 Michigan needed anymore hype — it’s now snowing in Ann Arbor.

Meeting on the field of The Big House this afternoon, the bitter Big Ten rivals will face off in what could end up being an iconic “snow game” matchup between the two historic programs.

Yesterday, the weather forecast had the kickoff temperature at 33 degrees Fahrenheit with a 15 percent chance of snow showers. Hours before kickoff, those chances increased to 50 percent and the temperature dropped to a frigid 30 degrees.

Now with just minutes before the game gets underway, the snow is coming down at a decent rate in Ann Arbor.

Upcoming Grand Solar Minimum Could Wipe Out Global Warming for Decades

Unknown to most people except those with an interest in solar science, the sun is about to shut down. Well, not completely – we’ll still have plenty of sunlight and heat, but the small dark blotches on the sun’s surface called sunspots, visible in the figure below, are on the verge of disappearing. According to some climate scientists, this heralds a prolonged cold stretch of maybe 35 years starting in 2020, despite global warming.

How could that happen? Because sunspots, which are caused by magnetic turbulence in the sun’s interior, signal subtle changes in solar output or activity – changes that can have a significant effect on the earth’s climate. Together with the sun’s heat and light, the monthly or yearly number of sunspots goes up and down during the approximately 11-year solar cycle. For several decades now, the maximum number of sunspots seen in a cycle has been declining.

The snows of November came early

I was a guest on a radio show whose host posed that question. The station was located where winters are different from here in the frozen foods section of the country. I won’t say kinder or gentler, but the temperatures are higher and snow is lacking.

My lame answer was, “When last winter’s snow has finally melted.” This assured me there would be no zombies pursuing me. They eat brains.

It’d been a glorious fall on the home front. It hadn’t been all gentle sunshine and Rice Krispies bars—it was more of a garbage casserole, but what did I expect? Wanting perfection in weather is a pipe dream.

Watch: Pelosi Admits Massive Climate Change Spending Is "A Religious Thing"

Critics of climate alarmism often level the charge that activists are engaging in a kind of religious fervour, and now Nancy Pelosi has provided more ammunition on this very front by calling the Democrats’ massive spending on ‘green’ policies “a religious thing.”

Describing the House passage of the massive ‘Build Back’ spending bill this past weekend, of which $550 billion is earmarked for combating climate change, Pelosi said “For me, it’s a religious thing.”

She explained, “I believe this is God’s creation and we have a moral obligation to be good stewards.”

Pelosi continued, “But if you don’t share that view, you must share the view that we have an obligation to future generations. So we’re very excited about what is in there and it is paid for.”

Swiss Bank Says You Must Give Up Red Meat, Beer, Coffee, Milk, Video Games, Dishwashers, to Be Carbon Neutral

The Swiss investment bank Credit Suisse has called on people to give up red meat, beer, coffee, video games, and vastly reduce the use of showers and dishwashers, in order to be carbon neutral.

In a report that emerged during the COP26 climate conference in Glasgow, Credit Suisse, the famed Swiss investment bank, claimed that the “ultimate reason for [carbon dioxide] emissions” is the consumer. “One could argue that at the end of the day it is our daily lifestyle that drives energy consumption and by implication emission levels from other sources,” the report reads.

“Whether it is the car we drive, the products that we buy, or the house that we heat, all emissions globally ultimately are generated by manufacturers or service providers in order to accommodate consumer behaviour and spending patterns.”

Using the Climate Crisis: Whitney Webb Discusses Global Elites’ Takeover of Nature

As world leaders, celebrities, business moguls and activists alike descended on Scotland for the COP26 climate summit, behind the scenes powerful financial groups were and are attempting to rewrite the rules of international trade and to privatize nature under the guise of sustainability.

While there has been a great deal of finger pointing, the enormous and tangible changes necessary to steer the planet away from devastation are yet to appear. The world is still on course to warm 2.4°C above pre-industrial levels by the end of the century, according to a report from Climate Action Tracker. Anything above 2°C is generally considered to be catastrophic and could lead to societal collapse across the globe.

While high politics has understandably made the headlines, a cartel of international bankers is attempting to use the crisis to rewrite international capitalism for their own benefit.

MEDIA DECLARES ‘CLIMATE LOCKDOWNS’ A “CONSPIRACY THEORY” AS INDIA PREPARES TO IMPOSE CLIMATE LOCKDOWN

While the media declares the notion of ‘climate lockdowns’ to be a fake news “conspiracy theory,” India is preparing to impose a climate lockdown to reduce pollution.

Yes, really.

NPR reports the details of the lockdown under the headline ‘New Delhi’s air pollution is so bad, officials are calling for a citywide lockdown’.

“India’s Supreme Court is calling for a lockdown in the capital, New Delhi. It’s because of a health emergency, but it’s not about COVID-19. It’s about air pollution,” states the piece.

Authorities are set to ban all nonessential travel on roads in the national capital region while ordering tens of millions of people to work from home.

Construction sites are also closing along with schools, many of which only recently opened after the COVID-19 lockdown.

China: North-eastern city sees highest snowfall in 116 years

Heavy blizzards in some parts of north-eastern China have brought record snowfall, raising concerns about keeping homes warm in an area hit by power outages earlier this year.

In the capital city of Shenyang, in Liaoning province, average snowfall reached 51cm (20 inches).

This is the highest recorded snowfall since 1905, said state outlet Xinhua.

In neighbouring inner Mongolia, one person died and more than 5,600 were affected after a heavy snowstorm.

Meteorological researchers in the Mongolian city of Tongliao told state outlet the Global Times that the snowstorm was an extremely random and sudden extreme weather event.

A total of 27 red alerts were issued across Inner Mongolia and north-eastern China - the highest warning alert for snowstorms.

PUNISHING COLD BREAKS 167-YEAR-OLD RECORDS IN AUSTRALIA, + AN EARLY ARCTIC FREEZE TRAPS 20+ SHIPS IN UNUSUALLY THICK SEA ICE

The seasons have gone “topsy-turvy” down under as a blistering Polar front sweeps the vast majority of Australia, just two weeks out from summer.

Much of the continent is suffering punishing temperate departures of 8-18C below the seasonal norm:

GFS 2m Temperature Departures (C) for Nov 14 [tropicaltidbits.com].

The exceptional chill is taking down long-standing records across the country.

The Tasmanian capital of Hobart, for example, just shivered through its chilliest November low in 60 years. The mercury in the city sank to 2.9C (37.2F) at dawn on Monday — the coldest November night since 1953 (solar minimum of cycle 18). And Kunanyi/Mt Wellington, which overlooks Hobart, bottomed out at -5.8C at 4.30am — the third coldest November temperature ever recorded in Tasmania.

Melbourne recently logged its coldest November day since 2007 (solar minimum of cycle 24), with that reading (of 14C/57.2F) surpassed on Monday when a high of just 13.5C/56.3F was observed.

Scientists extend and straighten iconic climate “hockey stick”

The climate “hockey stick” refers to a reconstruction of temperatures over the past 1,000 years. The data shows flattish temperatures over the last millennium, like the handle of a Hockey stick, ending in a "blade" of rapidly rising temperatures since the industrial revolution. The idea first appeared in a paper by Michael Mann and Raymond Bradley of the University of Massachusetts and Malcolm Hughes of the University of Arizona. The work became famous after appearing in a UN climate report, after which it was the focus of climate denial, hacking, defamation, and disinformation, all of which was dramatized in a recent BBC TV drama called “The Trick.”

The Creator of the 1.5C Climate Target has Admitted That the “Simple Number” Was Invented for the Benefit of Politicians

Politics, not science, lies behind the drive to keep global temperatures to 1.5°C. Not the thoughts of your correspondent, but the clear implication of words spoken in 2010 by the so-called father of 2°C, an earlier IPCC target, Hans Joachim Schellnhuber. Interviewed by the Der Speigel, Mr Schellnhuber, the IPCC lead author and at the time Angela Merkel’s Climate Adviser, was asked why he had imposed the “magical limit” to which all countries must slavishly adhere. He said: “Politicians like to have clear targets and a simple number is easier to handle.”

Of course, the push to net zero and the ‘settled’ science that is claimed to support the move is political. It is in fact the great political debate of the age, which makes it surprising to see the head of the BBC Tim Davie attempt last week to promote the impartiality of the Corporation by suggesting that climate change is no longer a political issue.

Decarbonization TERRAFORMING of planet Earth is now under way… giant machines to be installed in Iowa to suck “life molecules” out of the atmosphere and cause global crops to FAIL

The decarbonization terraforming of planet Earth is now under way. A new project has already been launched that will install mega machines across five U.S. states to harvest “life molecules” out of the atmosphere in an effort to shut down photosynthesis and unleash global food crop failures that destroy human civilization.

Farmland is already being seized in Iowa via eminent domain to build the mechanical infrastructure that will render Earth’s atmosphere inhospitable to plant life, animal life and human life, if it is allowed to continue to operate.

It’s almost like a scene ripped right out of the film Oblivion, where giant ocean harvesting machines sucked the water off the planet, abandoning the remaining human survivors on a barren, dead world that was ransacked by aliens. But in this case, the planet’s air is being stripped of carbon, the “God element” that is the very basis of life on Earth.

As the US faces the likelihood that the country’s heating costs this winter could be the highest on record thanks to energy price inflation that according to the government could reach 54%, President Biden is recommending a truly Democrat remedy: He wants to cut the amount of energy available to the country, making prices go higher still.

“The Biden administration is considering shutting down a Michigan oil pipeline in another push to get the US away from fossil fuels, despite warnings from Republican lawmakers who believe the move would result in fuel price shocks throughout the Midwest,” reported the Daily Mail.

But, as Statista's Martin Armstrong notes, as world leaders gather at the COP26 climate change conference to discuss and negotiate solutions to the crisis, in some regions of the world, there are significant shares of the population that have little or no trust in what 'scientists' are warning us about the environment.
