Meteorologist Dr. Ryan Maue: During last few days, Northern Hemisphere average temperature fell by > 1.0°C vs climatology (1981-2010).
Pravda: “Scientists Now Warn Of A New Ice Age” As Temperature Plummets to – 80°F In Russia!
Some impressive winter events have been taking place all across the northern hemisphere lately. Especially eastern and southeastern Europe have been pounded by massive snowfalls and tremendously cold temperatures. Turkey has been buried by heavy snows and extreme temperatures have gripped the entire USA and vast areas of Russia.
The global warming climate appears to have been hacked by natural factors.

- In Russia Moscow celebrated the coldest orthodox Christmas in 125 years.
- Snowfall paralyzed the city of Istanbul, Turkey.
- Massive snow falls across the Balkans, Italy and Greece.
- Dozens of Europeans have since frozen to death.
- Northern Albania villages have been cut off by 120 cm of snow.
- A temperature of -62°C (-80°F) was recorded in Chanty-Mansijsk (Russia).
Arctic conditions spread deep into the Mediterranean
These are all odd events when considering the “consensus” forecasts made 15 years ago, which warned that snow and ice would become rare.
In fact many scientists warned that Mediterranean conditions would spread into northern Europe. Lately, however, just the opposite has happened: Arctic conditions have plunged down into the Mediterranean!
Even worse, there is no end in site for the harsh European winter conditions, German mass circulation daily Bild writes here.
Warning of an impending ice age
So in the face of all the earlier global warming predictions, it is now only ironic that yesterday the German-language Pravda TV site here published an article warning of an impending ice age. The article cites Yale scientist Wei Liu and a recent paper he published on the “overlooked possibility of a collapsed Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation“. Should the ocean heat conveyor collapse, then there would be “a prominent cooling over the northern North Atlantic and neighboring areas, sea ice increases over the Greenland-Iceland-Norwegian seas and to the south of Greenland.”
The Pravda report summarizes Liu’s paper as follows:
CO2 has nothing to do with it, rather the influence of the sun is the dominant factor: less sunspots (Climate: solar physicists project global cooling (video)), weakening of the earth’s magnetic field, impact on the jet stream are decisive factors that can quickly lead our climate into an ice age (Scientists: Consensus 2016: the climate models are useless (Video)).”
Pravda also describes how some experts say today’s climate models fail to take the known ocean and solar factors in account.

Flashback 2014: Scientists and Studies predict ‘imminent global COOLING’ ahead – Drop in global temps ‘almost a slam dunk’ – Growing number of scientists are predicting global cooling: Russia’s Pulkovo Observatory: ‘We could be in for a cooling period that lasts 200-250 years’ – Danish Solar Scientist Svensmark declares ‘global warming has stopped and a cooling is beginning…enjoy global warming while it lasts’
Two satellite datasets agree: The Pause lives on: ‘No warming for the last 18 years’
RSS Confirm 2016 Is Tied With 1998 As Warmest Year -As Roy Spencer has pointed out, the margin of error is 0.1C, so statistically 2016 is tied with 1998 as the warmest year in the satellite record. The fact that there has been no warming for the last 18 years is a massive blow to the credibility of climate science.
EL NINO WARMING DOES NOT MEAN THE END OF THE ‘PAUSE’
Death Of Global Temperature ‘Pause’ Greatly Exaggerated – 2016 Not Statistically Warmer Than 1998
2016 Not Statistically Warmer Than 1998, Satellites Data Shows – Dr David Whitehouse: ‘Any estimate of temperature trends that have their endpoint on the uptick of the El Nino curve will give a misleadingly high trend. It is obvious that a better trend will be obtained after the natural El Nino has ended. Likewise care must be taken if the start point is near the La Nina years of 1999-2000. The temperature trends of the oceans estimated by the new paper fall into this trap.’
Dr. Judith Curry: ‘The hiatus is still going strong in the satellite dataset’
Meteorologist Anthony Watts: ‘Yet another study tries to erase “the pause” – but is missing a whole year of data’
The Pause Lives on: Global Satellites: 2016 not Statistically Warmer than 1998 – Climatologist Dr. Roy Spencer: The resulting 2016 annual average global temperature anomaly is +0.50 deg. C, which is (a statistically insignificant) 0.02 deg. C warmer than 1998 at +0.48 deg. C. We estimate that 2016 would have had to be 0.10 C warmer than 1998 to be significantly different at the 95% confidence level. Both 2016 and 1998 were strong El Nino years.
2016 NOT ‘Hottest’: Satellite data show 2016 NOT warmer than 1998 – Why Ground Based Temperature Fraud Matters
Via Real Climate Science:
Satellites show that temperatures in 2016 were nearly identical to 1998. The claims of record warmth are due to massively tampered NOAA/NASA data.
Fake NASA temperatures are diverging from satellite temperatures at a rate of 1.2C per century.
Global temperatures ‘have already plummeted from their 2016 peak by 0.5 degrees, even before the current has fully reversed itself into a cooling La Niña. By this time next year, we can expect all those excitable propagandists to have gone very much quieter.’
