Record cold and snow spread globally

By: - Climate DepotJanuary 6, 2017 10:14 AM with 96 comments

Record cold and snow have descended upon the planet this Winter and even in the summer in some places. The cold is spreading as the latest satellite data reveals that despite a huge El Nino, global temperatures are not statistically warmer than 1998.

The global warming “pause” continues. See: Death Of Global Temperature ‘Pause’ Greatly Exaggerated – 2016 Not Statistically Warmer Than 1998  & Despite new claims, global warming temperature pause ‘still going strong’  & The Pause Lives on: Global Satellites: 2016 not Statistically Warmer than 1998

Round up of global record cold and snow


Record cold, then freezing rain in Portland metro

New cold record set in Finland

California – 6½ feet of snow in 72 hours – Homewood ski area has received 79 inches  (200 cm) of snow in the past 72 hours. Continue reading California – 6½ feet of snow in 72 hours

Far colder than normal in Russia

Snowing in New Zealand – In high summer

California – 6½ feet of snow in 72 hours

Ten to fifteen feet of snow for California

Austria – “Winter is returning – and how!”

“Brutal cold” in Germany

“Great cold” in eastern France

Idaho – Most snow on the ground, any day of the year, any year

Boise sets TWO snowfall records. This morning, the National Weather Service measured a record 15 inches of snow on the ground at the Boise Airport. That breaks the record for total snowfall sitting on the ground, on any day of the year, in any year. The previous snow-depth record of 13 inches was set on December 30, 1983 and again December 2, 1985. Second record more than doubles previous record Yesterday, Boise received 6.5 inches of new snow, the most snow ever recorded on January 4th and more than double the previous record of 3.2 inches set in 1951.

Villages isolated by snow in Iraq

Getting colder again over parts of Canadian west

Schools in E. Idaho (where it’s COLD) – close because it’s TOO cold

39 inches of snowfall in 24 hours

India – Heavy snowfall closes Mughal road for third straight day

Turkey – Flooded minaret now surrounded by snow

        What would really be funny is if he was serious about ” Man Made Clouds “

    • lostinnm

      Well for the past 2 mo we in NM have been hammered by man made clouds. We used to be the sunny state to where solar, active and passive homes could go all winter w/o back up heat…The Globalists have other plans…They want our independents and money, solar is just about a thing of the past here.
      What better way to destroy this free/low cost energy?

    • lyt

      Oh this is all part of it. No matter what the weather it is global warming anthropologic man’s fault. We must be culled and the Illuminati have plans for just that. Blaming us is the first step. Getting us to agree it’s our fault is step 2. Voluntarily queing up for the ovens step 3.Getting us to fight for who gets to go to the front of the line step 4. Thank God for liberals eh?

      Thats why they changed it to climate change, so they can find a way to blame it on it no matter what.

    • jordanminn


      high today, in the DFW Area is 26 degrees F………………

      that is over 30 degrees below the average daily high temp of 57F for January.

  • oncemorearound

    Better come up with a new scam Al. Bottom’s going to drop out of that carbon credits fraud.

    • babies grandma

      Nice little carbon credits scam ya got goin’ there, Al.

  • Yu So Wong

    Hopefully glaciation of the Northern US will stave off the horrors of global warming a few more years. LOL

  • lysosome

    Yet again, another season where the climate doesn’t obey the left’s computer climate models. Obviously, the Earth doesn’t understand what it’s supposed to do…

    • Descanti

      Agreed. The models are often way off, particularly when the baseline data is skewed to maximize warm results. Many of the global models got pommeled in December and now in January. The only guys getting this correctly are at You can’t just let some sniveling socialist dial-in the inputs in a back room somewhere and use that as weather gospel. You HAVE to study the historical analogs. That’s where the red meat is. The fact is, nothing has really changed that much since the industrial revolution. Oh sure, a couple of super El Ninos but stay tuned. These upcoming winters are going to be historic.

    • enoughalready911

      Ask any warmer what the optimal avg temperature should be for 2017…. then ask who determined that temperature… and on what basis did they come to this magic number.

    • Kurt Smith

      heh heh…lib warming models. My kid built a beautiful model of a Huey helicopter. But guess what – it doesn’t fly.

    • dfw

      That is funny!

    This global warming is gonna freeze us all to death.

    • Deplorable and Sarcastic Texan

      Just wait until the Sunspot minimum in 2019. And a Maunder Minimum event between 2029 and 2032 — temps now will seem BALMY when that hits.

      • William Guessford

        You’re absolutely correct. We are in a new Grand Solar Minimum as part of the 179 year cycle. With an 8 year lag between the grand alignment of Uranus, Neptune and Jupiter opposite Saturn in 2010, the combine force of this alignment has changed the angular momentum of the Sun and pulled it off it barycentric motion. This has slowed the Sun’s conveyor belt and the magnetic activity of the Sun is going to shut down for about 30 years. Just as the Modern Solar Maximum warmed the oceans and released additional CO2 into the atmosphere between 1900 and today, the cooling oceans over the next few decades will see CO2 reduction as the salt water reabsorbs excess CO2 once again. All of this will happen without a single dollar of tax money going to the United Nations….sorry progressive socialists, your warming scheme has been overtaken by the universe!

  • another_engineer

    ERRR.. AHHHHH I mean ” climate change” …… yeah thats the ticket

  • another_engineer

    It is currently a balmy +1 degrees outside here in wisconsin

    • J Lo

      For Wisconsin in January, that’s a heat wave.

      Go Packers!!

  • Greg Locke

    “Children won’t know what snow is anymore!” Yeah, right.

    • babies grandma

      Our schools up here in the Colorado Rockies never close, but we did yesterday because of TOO MUCH SNOW! GoreBull Warming is burying us.

  • Deplorable and Sarcastic Texan

    My car was covered with a thick coat of ice — and I don’t even own an ice scraper. Never really needed one.

  • RalphSC

    Algore better get to work. His weather scam is falling apart. POX on Algore and his “scientists” .

  • Wilkins Micawber

    Look on the bright side! in 150 years the average temp will be 3 degrees higher! According to the models anyway.

  • Gotham Knight

    Don’t you understand? It’s all about feedback loops and such. You melt the ice in the north and south poles, and it floods the Earth with cold water which is then feedback looped into the air which then rains snow and ice on the Earth in a way that is caused by man’s breathing and carbon dioxide and yes, cow flatulence and such, not to mention all those cars, factories, planes, etc.. Then you call it climate change cause it’s no longer warming, but, it’s all that melting caused by warming that’s making my buns freeze, so freezing the poles again is the only choice we have. Stop climate change! Freeze the poles! That is our credo!

  • Victor Cachat

    The left is “chilled” over Trump’s election.
    The lack of heat in their voluminous spewing of hot air is the root of this.

  • Angelicus1

    They call this Global Warming… Al Gore & company (environmental wackos).

  • Vizzini


    I don’t think that word means what you think it means.

  • MERRY CHRISTMAS! – Bullet2354

    Here is a chart on Temps – from USHCN data….. that speaks VOLUMES about the rise in temperatures over the last 100+ years – (at least for US data…)

    Note the difference between Raw and ‘Final’ Temperatures, and it’s trend line, is almost equivalent to the temperature change that have the Warmist’s and their panties all tied up in a wad.

    NOAA states the altered data is the best they have…. Hmmmmmmm. Even the Temp data is suspect.

    • Dano2

      Justin Data!

      Will the right’s new heartthrob finally be THE ONE to validate their self-identity?!?!?!?



  • Mike Lane

    As we go into the next solar grand minimum this will be the norm. Get use to it.

  • Deplorable Flyboy

    Who was that assclown who said that the “earth has a fever” years ago? Oh that would be that idiot Algoreacle back in 2006. So what now? Earth has a cold? Oh yeah, he’s also the moron who said this: “The number of Category 4 and 5 hurricanes has doubled in the last 30 years.” Except that the past 11 years post-Katrina, they dropped. You junk science court jesters just make it up as you go.

  • J Lo

    Great year for skiing!!

  • Kwan

    Don’t forget when the Global Warming hoaxers begin to realize that global warming actually wasn’t taking place, they had to change the name of the scam to Climate Change. You see back in July temperatures were averaging 80 degrees, but due to excess CO2 in the atmosphere temperatures in January are averaging 30 degrees, which is a change. But don’t question the nonsensical science behind this Global Warming/Climate Change, just pay your carbon footprint tax bill and shutup.

  • sktuc

    Good Old Farmers Almanac predicted a Severe Freezing Winter and the Great Scientific Minds of the Climate Change World predicted the Arctic would melt, Antarctica Ice would melt and flood the World. Hmmmmmmmm
    Seems a lot cheaper to just buy the Old Farmers Almanac than spend Billions of Dollars on Bull Shit.

  • Pete

    From yesterday’s Daily Mail article, ‘The Day After Tomorrow’ could become a reality: “Climate change could cause ocean currents to COLLAPSE plunging the Northern Hemisphere into an ice age, warn scientists.”
    “Researchers from the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California San Diego have shown that climate models may be drastically underestimating the possibility of ocean circulations collapsing.”
    “According to researchers, the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC) is an important component of the Earth’s climate system.”
    “The pattern carries warm, salty water in the upper layers of the Atlantic northward, and colder fresh water in the deep Atlantic southward.”
    “This ocean circulation system transports a substantial amount of heat from the Tropics and Southern Hemisphere toward the North Atlantic, where the heat is transferred to the atmosphere.”
    “High levels in carbon dioxide would cause Arctic and Greenland ice melt, increasing the amount of freshwater run-off into the ocean.”
    “This increase in freshwater would disrupt the AMOC, which relies on a balance between fresh and salt water.”
    “Previous studies have estimated that carbon dioxide levels will double to 700 ppm by 2100. If this is the case, ocean currents could collapse by the year 2400.”
    “North Atlantic Ocean surface temperatures would drop 2.4° C (4.3° F) and surface air temperatures over northwest Europe could drop by as much as 7° C (12.6° F).
    Zhengyu Liu, co-author of the study, said: ‘It’s a very provocative idea.
    ‘For me, it’s a 180-degree turn because I had been thinking like everyone else.’

    These pseudo- scientists are REALLY INSANE!!!

  • Paul Anders

    Quit looking at the “Moment”, and use some common sense. Temperatures can be hand picked to suit their purpose…but, most of the glaciers that have been around for 10’s of thousands of years are either receding or just plain gone, and that’s just a fact…

    • Sammy4231

      12,000 was the end of the last ice age. So, those glaciers you cite were 2 miles thick if you count by 10s of thousands, over one.

    • Jasper2

      Thank God the glaciers have been melting, or we would still be in an ice age! Sea levels have been rising about 1/8″ per year for as far back as we can measure as a result. They are not rising any faster, nor any slower than normal. You should have stated that those glaciers that have been around for 10’s of thousands of years continue to melt. That’s what glaciers do! They either grow or recede. Nothing unusual here, folks…move along! Sooner or later, temperatures will cool and the glaciers will return…that is, if the earth isn’t struck by one of the thousands of asteroids orbiting our planet! Of course, we can’t blame man for that, right?

  • Indiana Mike

    I remember when Paul Ehrlich and his ilk first began to terrorize the public about climate and population issues. I saw him on The Tonight Show in 1968 and he really scared me. Predictions of Planetary famine and catastrophic climate change [it was supposed to be a new Ice Age then] proved to be 100%wrong. But the same bunch is still using the same tactics to fool the rubes…As you get older and wiser, the charlatans become painfully obvious and you marvel that you were ever taken in by them.

    By the end of the decade, Al Gore’s great, great grandkids will be calling for more coal and fossil fuel burning in a futile attempt to mitigate a mini ice age that will be threatening to become more severe than expected.

    If not for pyromaniacal cavemen, the Sahara Desert wouldn’t have gone from a green paradise 11,000 years ago to what it is today and the great glaciers would still be covering much of the Northern Hemisphere.

    And yet our public schools continue this inane GW indoctrination starting at a very early age. Test scores in science are made by regurgitating the fake science. And the oblivious go on with their lives wondering why their utility bills inch continuously skyward – even with all the widely acclaimed improvements in “technology”.

    Yes, yes, whatever…blah blah blah. The really BIG news is that the UN, along with President Obama, has ALREADY declared that 2017 is the HOTTEST year on record! And we’re only 6 days in! Who are you going to believe? 120 percent of all scientists (AND Al Gore, btw)…or this article?

  • wvcitizen

    It’s cold outside. Please fire up your wood burning stoves and generate some CO2 to heat up the atmosphere and cut down on heating bills. The libs tell me the sun or earths changing orbit do not play a role in the temperature changes, the warming is caused by humans generating CO2 and those darn cows farting methane gas.

  • BeatTheDeadHorse

    Let me guess the NOAA response to global cooling. Global warming has caused superheating of the Earth’s iron core resulting in wobbling of the Earth’s axis, causing missaligment of the gravitational fields, resulting in ocean current disruption resulting in deep cold ocean water to float on top of warmer water, resulting in expansion of the polar ice sheets, resulting in global surface cooling, in othewords man-made climate change.

    The noted S. American Global Cooling Climatologist, Alberto Gorez, correctly predicted the current GLOBAL COOLING TREND over 2 decades ago…..but of course Alberto is a real scientist, who understands the Laws of Thermodynamics….he actually took several upper level college courses in it…..unlike the Global Warming liars who flunked out of college “Science”….

  • eddie too

    and still there are people who want to make the earth colder, as though we had the science to control the earth’s climate which is the single largest machine (system) on the planet.

    Would anyone like to purchase a Carbon Debit to help warm the earth back up?

    The earth’ s temperature has nothing to do with THE SUN, if you CHOOSE to believe the CHOSENITE RUN MEDIA…..

    When nobody was still going thru this winter in the NH, we warned that Brazil was having its worst winter in many years reaching temperature anomalies of -4°C for the entire months of May and June, and more than 60 days of negative temperatures. Even in the tropical State of Rio de Janeiro during the ‘Summer’ Olympic Games there were places facing -8°C at 2000m. But people was fully entertained with the ‘AGW’…
