Snowflake Cold

Enough With the Global Warming Nonsense: It's Freezing Out Here!

No that's not the north pole; that's just outside Boston last week.


"
Children just aren't going to know what snow is." Thus spake 'climate science' at the turn of the new millennium.

And then the cold waves came on so hard and so fast that 'climate scientists' had to invent a new term for them: 'polar vortex'. Thecurrent oneover the eastern half of North America has broken records left and right - and I mean century-old records. It's so cold on Mount Washington in New Hampshire that it's literally out of this world: it's colder there than on Mars. And what about that superpowerful storm in the US northeast? They had to invent a new name for that too.

The weather they told us would 'soon never happen again' is not just happening in spades in North America. The UK had its heaviest snowfall in four years in early December. It's freezing cold in India too, where some 70 people have died from exposure, and the Sahara Desert (yes, one of the hottest places on Earth) just got a substantial snowfall for the second winter running.


But hold on, say 'climate scientists' and armchair activists, "
weather is not climate." Touché! Recall, however, that these same 'experts' were saying that this kind of weather we're currently experiencing would "soon become a thing of the past..."

In other news, more actual scientists are talking about an imminent ice age, with professor Valentina Zharkova of Northumbria University reporting that her model of the sun's magnetic fields indicate a "huge reduction in solar activity for 33 years between 2020 and 2053, causing global temperatures to decrease-drastically."

What exactly constitutes an 'ice age' is, of course, impossible to predict, but one thing it certainly will not be is incessant heatwaves and inundated coastal cities from totally melted ice caps. You would think anyone myopic enough to hang their entire reputation on that would today be crawling away in shame, but no! Al Gore, like all people well practiced in lying to themselves, reckons the sight of Cape Cod freezing over proves he was right all along...

This is Banks Street in photo courtesy Cheryl Reilly McSharry .... thinking of all the folks hunkered down along the coast right now.


Pied Pipers of Global Warming

"No more snow" said the 2009 version of Al Gore "Lots more snow" says2018 Al Gore. According to that bloviating 'climate whistleblower', massive snowstorms are "exactly what one would expect" to result from man-made global warming. Unless there aren't any. Then that's also what one would expect. Liars and blowhards are easily identified when no matter what they say, they can't be wrong.

To prove his point Gore cited Michael Mann of Climategate fame - the same 'scientist' who got slapped with a contempt of court for refusing to provide previous data that 'proved' global warming. But why would he reveal his data when it's clear that he's in the business of purposefullyerasing global climate history? After all, there's still money to be made: during the 2008 recession Mann made an easy half a $million off Obama's 'green' stimulus package.

It’s bitter cold in parts of the US, but climate scientist Dr. Michael Mann explains that’s exactly what we should expect from the climate crisis. http://ow.ly/Gdm230hAFv4


The biting cold has reality-deniers lashing out via their favorite liberal hipster outlets. Like this recent piece in the Guardian entitled'The 'imminent mini ice age' myth is back, and it's still wrong'. The author, Dana Nuccitelli, is a self-described 'environmentalist' whobelievesDemocrats hold the keys to saving the US from 'the Trumpocalypse'. According to him, every two years the world is bombarded by "claims of an ice age," which is then picked up by 'fake news'. He has also gone on record saying that, "There is no cohesive, consistent alternative theory to human-caused global warming," which is funny because man-made global warming has proven itself wrong so many times that the only thing maintaining its 'cohesiveness' is that it's consistently wrong.

'Ancient' ice age theories

Nutticelli's scientific analysis aside, studies on global cooling have been published for decades. 13 recent studies and their abstracts are listedhere. While the concept of rapid-onset glacial rebound is gaining traction, its potentially devastating consequences are being played down. This soothing report, for example, reassures us that an ice age "will not be deadly for the human race" because we have heating technology! True, ancient humanity did not have electric heaters, but modern crops don't either. The US justwitnessed another billion-dollar crop freeze and China has seen massive fruit and vegetable crop failures.

Our period, the Holocene, is relatively warm, but that doesn't mean it will stay that way - it is only a little more than 10,000 years old. Most of Earth's history has been spent in ice age conditions. Anticipating a warmer global climate because of an increase in 'greenhouse gases', itself not even a main driver of temperature, is just historically untenable.

With this in mind, in 1972 geologists George Kukla and Robert Matthews, alarmed at cooling temperatures earlier in the century, sent a letter to President Nixon warning that:
...a global deterioration of climate, by order of magnitude larger than any hitherto experienced by civilized mankind is a very real possibility and indeed may be due very soon.
That same year, the American Association for the Advancement of Science wondered when the current intergalacial period would end, stating that,
On the geologic time scale, the general warmth and basic bipartite pattern of the last 10,000 years of the earth's history (the elapsed part of the Holocene), which are characteristic of interglacials [were studied]. It has long been recognized that the climatic optimum passed 6,000 to 7,000 years ago and was succeeded by slow, oscillatory cooling, interrupted by milder episodes like the one in the 10th and 11th centuries.
Not long after that, the global warming train began in earnest, leaving us where we are today with high priests of global warming viciously attacking 'denialist' science.

By the late 70s the scientist Hubert Lambe was lamenting the state of climate science, wondering how global warming alarmists could divert massive amounts of funding into computer models that only served to validate their original assumptions. Key to their 'findings' was the notion that climate change could be offset by drumming up public support for government agendas to 'fix' the 'problem'. Which is why the idea that the climate can change suddenly and chaotically and that there's nothing anyone can do about it had to go.

And since then "the science is settled. There's 97% consensus. There is no cohesive, consistent alternative theory to human-caused global warming." Except that there is, one that explains a lot more, and which involves the interplay between the Sun and the Earth. And nowhere is it more concisely explained than in Earth Changes and the Human-Cosmic Connection.

The Health & Wellness Show: Lies, Damned Lies and Scientific Research

bad science, corruption science
Evidence-based medicine (peer-reviewed and published clinical research results) is the life-blood of conventional medical knowledge and practice. All standard allopathic medical treatments rest upon it with physicians relying on the results of this clinical research to guide their practice. But what if this gold standard of medical practice is based on research that is largely wrong, biased or outright fraudulent? It is estimated that up to 90% of biomedical studies are false. More and more scientific papers are being retracted because of sloppy research, data calculation and collection errors or purposeful lying on the part of researchers. We've gotten to the point where that anything read in a scientific journal needs to be take with a large grain of salt.

In this episode of the Health and Wellness Show we explore the dubious nature of scientific study; the conflicts of interest, the hidden (and not so hidden) corporate funding that guides research, the censorship of negative results and the lies and obfuscation that plague so-called evidence based studies.

It is sad for some humans to favor man's science over Abba Father's design.

PUERTO RICANS HAVE BEEN COMMITTING SUICIDE NEARLY EVERY DAY AFTER HURRICANE MARIA, A NEW REPORT SHOWS

BY


The rate of suicide increased to nearly a suicide a day in Puerto Rico in November, according to a recent report released by The Commission for the Prevention of Suicide. At least 227 people committed suicide on the island last year, a 16 percent increase compared to 2016, according to the report released Tuesday from the commission, which is part of the Department of Health of Puerto Rico.

After Hurricane Maria, 26 people took their own lives in November, or nearly one person a day. The suicide report also found that 85 percent of suicides are committed by men, and 14 percent are committed by women. Many health specialists and doctors said the spike in suicides can be linked to the aftermath of the storm that struck the island on September 20 and the destruction of basic resources like food, water, electricity and housing.

“If someone is in a position where they do not have any electricity, water or a roof over their head, you’re going to either break and sometimes break to the point of committing suicide,” said Alicia Schwartz, a home care nurse from New York City, who volunteered in Puerto Rico through the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) union after Maria hit the island.“You can only live so much without the simple necessities of having a roof over your head.”

Dr. Kenira Thompson, who is in charge of providing mental health services at the Ponce Health Sciences University in Puerto Rico, said she has seen a rise in patients since the storm.

“A lot of patients are presenting severe mental health issues since the storm and the number of patients in our clinic has increased dramatically,” said Thompson. “Not one person that has lived through the storm can't say they weren’t touched by what happened."

The clinic, which has been opened for almost 16 years, has largely served mental health patients in Ponce, Puerto Rico to help people dealing with mental health issues, including the emotional and mental problems in the aftermath of the storm. Recently, the clinic has set their efforts on reaching out to people who live in rural areas like in the central mountainous regions of Puerto Rico in the towns of Utado and Cayey, which have all seen an increase in suicides. Many of these rural towns still do not have power, are not able to get into town, and don’t even have a roof over their heads.

“A lot of people are still living with tarps over their roofs. We normally have thousands of patients but have seen an increase in patients coming into the facility in rural areas post-Maria. Power is restored in most urban areas, but for rural areas, it's as if the storm hit last week,” said Thompson.

Hurricane Maria swept through Puerto Rico with 155-mile-per-hour winds and more than 30 inches of rain, leaving a path of death and destruction that officials and locals are still trying to fully cope with. The official death toll is 66, but the island's government announced in December that it will recount the fatalities after two independent reports estimated that more than 1,000 people died from diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease with an increase in sepsis, an infection often caused by bacteria.

Puerto Rico's Commission for the Prevention of Suicide did not return requests for comments to Newsweek in time for publication.

Schwartz also said there is generally a stigma around seeking help for mental health in the Latino community, but many are experiencing mental health problems that cannot be addressed because it is difficult to get to those who are living in rural towns.

“One of the problems we have is that Hispanic individuals don’t believe in mental health, but the other issue we have is access to mental health. Those who don’t live in populated cities are unreachable to this day, and they don’t have people to go to them for mental health help,” said Schwartz.

She recalled being in a patient’s home a few weeks after the storm and being told by the patient that he “sometimes feels like grabbing a rope” to kill himself.

Alfredo Carrasquillo, the executive leadership coach and organizational development consultant at the Universidad del Sagrado Corazón in San Juan said that while the resources and clinics may be in the bigger cities like San Juan, there isn't much help for people living in poverty-stricken communities.

"When someone expressed he or she is contemplating suicide, the typical answer is to take this person to the hospital or an institution. The healthcare system, especially for poor people, is a limited amount of days," said Carrasquillo. "They are given medication and are sent home."

Carrasquillo also said the lack of help from the U.S government is another factor that has caused a rise in mental health problems, as many Puerto Ricans feel forgotten.

"Puerto Ricans have always felt that as a people when they are in a crisis, the American government will be there to help us. That has not happened. The response has been slow and terrible, and since [Hurricane Maria], we have felt alone and abandoned," said Carrasquillo.

It’s not just suicide. Locals are also dealing with other mental health issues, including PTSD, anxiety, and depression. Thompson said clinics like the one in Ponce are doing the best they can to provide mental health assistance for those that come forward, and are also helping them mentally prepare for the next hurricane season, which begins in June.

“Mental health issues will not stop, if you think about the next hurricane season will start again in six months. We will have chaos when the first storm is announced on the news. Hopefully, it's not another storm like Maria,” said Thompson.
