Ice Age Now has these posts:
At least 33,000 sheep and cattle stranded in deep snow
“A massive rescue operation is under way in Otago’s high country (New Zealand),
About 6000 livestock and 25 shepherds stuck in heavy snowfall at Narkanda (India)
Unprecedented and unseasonal snowfall.
As a result of heavy snowfall about 2 thousand sheep died in northern Kyrgyzstan
Headline from June 21, 2013.
This is follows the sheep killed in Ireland and Scotland this Northern Hemisphere winter. The question is will these deaths continue year after year. Stay Tuned.
It’s probably apropos to mention that, according to the Danish Meteorological Institute, it’s still the coldest start to summer on the north Pole in their instrumental record stretching back 55 years, but it’s not too much colder overall than 2009, which not long after today bounced back to the average.
Of course, this is only weather. By current journalistic standards, unusual weather is only climate if it’s hot.
Some more fun from the past…
“Arctic summers ice-free ‘by 2013′” BBC News, 2007
“Scientists in the US have presented one of the most dramatic forecasts yet for the disappearance of Arctic sea ice. Their latest modelling studies indicate northern polar waters could be ice-free in summers within just 5-6 years.”
Modelling studies. How often has a scary headline been based on someone’s simulated reality?
The real reality is a 10 year high in arctic ice extent, significantly more than in 2007.
It’s never really been about the facts, global warming (then disingenuously renamed climate change by the lying liars who saw that the original flimsy evidence would not withstand any serious examination) is just the latest excuse by the big government interests in justifying more control and less personal freedoms. Academic miscreants who exist due to government spending of one form or another, provide the thin and manipulated substantiation for these vile political thieves. Nothing is more absurd than when these biased hacks are questioned about faulty data and conclusions, they scream the doubt is merely from the paid representatives of oil companies. Ultimately, this collusion and manufactured global crisis racket appears to have been a wildly successful partnership until recently when the internet allowed credible challenges to be widely available. The entire Persistent organic pollutants (POPs) field that allowed the banning of DDT without fair and unbiased study (which through the uncontrolled mosquito/vector in its absence has killed many millions) appears to be another clear example of this. What is most insidious is many brazen political leaders (Obama recently with executive CO2 decrees) totally ignore the blatant facts and evidence and impose choking business regulation regardless and without any public dissent by a media that’s been gelded and co-opted into a useless figurehead.
