    A leading pioneer in the study of Grand Solar Minima and their effects on the planet has been solar physicist Professor Valentina Zharkova of Northumbria University. She has been attacked savagely for her theory that the weakened solar magnetosphere during a Grand Solar Minimum is the main factor in driving global cooling on Earth, but she is increasingly being vindicated as global cooling progresses. Recently, Professor Zharkova gave a lecture to the Global Warming Policy Foundation. You can view the lecture below, but it’s heavy-going. Here’s a summary of her main points: • The solar magnetosphere is key to understanding...

    NY Post ^ | November 16, 2018 | 2:18pm | Rich Calder and Bob Fredericks
    Facing a blizzard of criticism, Mayor Bill de Blasio admitted Friday that he knew Thursday morning the city would be blanketed with up to 5 inches of snow — but still pointed the finger everywhere except at City Hall for the chaotic evening commute. Responding to an angry “George in the Bronx” on WNYC’s “Brian Lehrer Show,” who was stuck in the snow for four hours on Gun Hill Road, Hizzoner offered a lengthy reply that stopped short of a mea culpa. “I think the crux of this matter was on Wednesday night the National Weather Service was saying 1...

    DC Clothesline ^ | Michael Snyder
    Our sun has been behaving very strangely, and this unusual behavior is really starting to affect our weather patterns. There have been virtually no sunspots in 2018 as solar activity has dropped to alarmingly low levels. As a result, our atmosphere has been cooling and shrinking, and experts are warning that we are heading for a bitterly, bitterly cold winter. And even though the official start of winter is well over a month away, winter weather is already sweeping the nation. As you will see below, a giant winter storm is about to slam into the east coast, but what...

The National Weather Service reported snowfall measuring between 3 and 13 inches (8 to 33 centimeters) south of Sheridan, Wyoming, over the last 24 hours.

    White Greater Double ROME, DELIVERED FROM SLAVERY by Peter on the first of this month, offers to the world a wonderful spectacle. O Wisdom, who since the glorious Pentecost, hast spread over the whole world, where could it be more true to sing of thee that thou hast trodden the proud heights under thy victorious feet? On seven hills had pagan Rome set up her pageantry and built temples to her false gods; seven churches now appear at the summits on which purified Rome rests her now truly eternal foundations. By their very site, the basilicas of St. Peter...

    Residents of Newfoundland, Canada, were greeted with snow and biting cold winds Tuesday morning despite the fact that July begins in just a few days.

    The weather in France has been very varied in recent weeks, but nobody could have expected snow on April 30th. Many residents of the northern French region of Normandy woke up on Monday to find a considerable layer of snowfall on their rooftops and cars. The mercury dropped to around zero in many parts of the historical region, with the departments of Eure and Seine-Maritime registering the lowest temperatures. In the city of Rouen, the wind chill made it feel like a frosty –5°C in the early hours of the morning. It may have only been a couple of centimeters...

    Billings-area residents trudged through the slush Monday, but the storm brought some "good" news: The long winter of suffering has not been in vain. Shortly after 10 a.m., the National Weather Service in Billings announced that a scant 0.1 inches of snow had fallen — not enough to accumulate much on the ground or streets, but enough to break the single-season snowfall record. The measuring station at Billings Logan International Airport recorded 2.6 inches by 1 p.m., bringing the yearly total to 106.1 inches.

    Freshly groomed corduroy slopes at Deer Valley, before they turn to mush So here’s the deal, today is our last ski day of the season. Technically the resort is open through Sunday but the weather for the rest of the week is going to be warm and/or rainy. Now, there was a time when I loved skiing in spring’s soft, slushy, corn snow. But that time was about 20 years ago, when my knees still had reasonably functioning cartilage and tendons that still had a little stretch left in them. So today is it: the last day of the season...

  • Thundersnow hammers the East Coast, and so do the jokes

    Because the snowstorm currently hitting the East Coast isn't enough, it's also bringing with it thundersnow. That weather phenomenon is exactly what it sounds like: a snowstorm that features thunder and lightning. Very, very frightening. "Thunderstorms accompanied by snow are usually of a different character than the 'normal' thunderstorm," Weather.com explained in 2015. "Thundersnow develops when the air is below freezing near the ground, and unlike most summer thunderstorms, it isn't near-ground air that rises all the way into the tall thunderstorm top. The instability is in only a shallow layer aloft. In thundersnow, the 'action' mainly takes place in...
