If the killing snows come

With heavy or early snowfalls already reported in China, Canada, USA, Sweden the UK and many other areas of the northern hemisphere (where most climate babble originates), we may be at a political turning point in the climate change game.

If the coming northern hemisphere winter (2012/13) is severe, with unusually heavy snowfalls and low temperatures, however we choose to define these measures, then the cold winters are mounting up.

“Look at this! This is just hard to believe. I just want too, again, people get a little nervous when I start talking about the climate aspect of this, but this is how the Little Ice Age began. In Europe there was an attack of one cold winter after another. This is the fourth one in a row that severe to record-breaking cold has entered Europe.” Meteorologist Joe Bastardi.

In which case, if the northern hemisphere winter of 2013/14 turns out cold too, then we could see major political upheavals as current energy policies are finally seen for the foolish scams they are.

This could even begin just over a year from now – not long to wait. Of course the climate is unpredictable and we don’t know how coming winters will pan out, but how will the climate establishment change its game if severe winters become the norm? If people die?

Because surely the critical political point here is that global cooling would be another golden opportunity for them. An opportunity ripe and ready for exploitation, apart from having to adjust the warming mantra we’ve been hearing over the past few decades.

So, if we do get a few more severe winters, how will they hop nimbly from warming to cooling? Because they will.

Fudging the climate models seems to be the best bet as it has worked well so far, but surely switching from warming predictions to cooling predictions would be a little too cheeky, wouldn’t it? Yet the climate scientists and their useful idiots aren’t going to slink off into the snow. Not after pushing the climate scam this far.

Of course we don’t know what the climate will do, but if global cooling becomes obvious even to climate scientists? If the killing snows come while we are still building windmills and haven’t even begun fracking? Then what do we do?

What we actually do will depend partly on what the climate does and how quickly. If asked to guess between warming and cooling though – how would I guess? Well given all the caveats and given that I’d really prefer warming and given that it is just a guess anyway, my guess would be…

Cooling.

    With the same nimble dexterity they switched from cooling to warming a couple of decades ago.

    What is the current position & strength of the Gulf Stream/North Atlantic Drift?
    A general slight warming could (& has in the psat) slowed this down, or even switched the current-conveyor off (Look up “Younger Dryas”).

    So a general global warming can, & has in the past, produce localised (i.e. N.W. Europe) cooling.

    I can’t imagine they’ll start giving FITs to people installing coal fires and solid fuel burners, but it would make me chuckle.
    We’ll still end up paying for China and India to build loads of coal fired power stations to help stall the oncoming cold with their magic fairy gas :-)

    • December 9, 2012 at 2:14 pm

      Or Germany, who are currently in a building program of 13 new supersized coal fired power stations…. and not one green bats an eyelid.

      Is it only the British that must be reduced to cold and hungry wretches at the hands of the EU numpties. German MEP Leinan is even pushing for EU law to control the UK’s ‘dash for gas’ through fracking.

      When the heat and lights start going out, then and only then will the public begin to do something.

        “When the heat and lights start going out, then and only then will the public begin to do something.”

        Unfortunately I think you are right.

    Sorry, this is a confusing post seeing as it shows a lack of understanding in the complexity of enhanced climate change (climate change is usual, just like a green house effect however we are concerned when it becomes enhanced) and has an air of certainty about it.
    Climate and weather are different things.
    I don’t think there will be any completely uniform global weather match. Places like the Maldives are shrinking through the displacement of water as ice caps and glaciers melt and as they do they affect our gulf stream, making it colder for us.
    Others will be able to give you more information; I only have A level knowledge. I don’t claim to have full knowledge.

      Actually the Maldives are shrinking due to erosion, not climate change.

        They are, but it isn’t the narrative they push.

      “Sorry, this is a confusing post seeing as it shows a lack of understanding in the complexity of enhanced climate change…”

      Okay, let us have clarification of three, presumably simple points:

      First, how did the last Ice Age get going? This is an excellent example of “enhanced climate change”.

      Second, please explain the warming which ended that Ice Age – another example of “enhanced climate change”.

      Finally, please explain how human activity was responsible for the first two phenomena. Show your workings.

      Suggest you take a look at the latest figures for ocean level rise, it’s slowing, 34% in the last ten years, so the melting ice caps are not adding to it, actually if all the ice in the caps were to melt it still would not raise the levels to near what the alarmists are suggesting, how about checking out some of the more scientific sites? :roll:

      Professor Nils-Axel Mörner would disagree with you about sea levels rising.

    Urrrm no. They call it Climate Change nowadays…and the climate IS changing, right ? So they’re not lying, no sir.

    Nothing wrong in the climate changing, either. For the first time in a long time we haven’t had weather that switches from rain to cloudy/sunny/threat of rain on a daily basis the whole year round.

    I look forward to blistering hot days in Summer…even if it is only for a week or so… and if snow doesn’t belong in Winter then where the hell does it belong ?

    Hooray for proper seasons again !

    We have to take into account how the public would react to colder winters and unreliable power supplies. One thing is for sure, they wouldn’t just freeze to death in the dark.
    Standard houses would begin to install wood or coal burning stoves and flues, or bring their old fireplace and chimney back into use. Burning anything and everything. The landfill problem would vanish, with most domestic rubbish being tipped onto the fire. Householders would come up with ways of keeping some essential electrical circuits on, maybe by letting the engine run on the car during power cuts.

    Apartment dwellers would club together to buy and install their own backup generators.

    Every public reaction to an energy squeeze will pump more and more muck into the atmosphere. The legacy of the deep green climate alarmists, will be a return to smog, and pea soupers. But people will not just sit there in the dark, and the cold.

      Those who haven’t been raised to rely on state intervention, anyway.

      Survival Instinct or Political Correctness…there can be only one.

    The problem is that our own arguments can be used against us – that the cold snap is just that, part of a short term change, just as the warm of some years ago proved to be just that.

      Which pretty much proves our point.
