HISTORIC SNOWSTORMS IN PATAGONIA BURY SHEEP ALIVE AND LEAVE ENTIRE CITIES WITHOUT POWER
Large parts of Patagonia (southern South America) are experiencing one of their “cruelest winters of the last 20 years,” reads the opening line of infobae.com article.
Over the past month, record-breaking temperatures of up to 23-below have been a regular occurrence ACROSS the lower regions of Argentina and Chile. Intense Antarctic cold fronts riding anomalously-far north on the back of a meridional jet stream flow have accompanied the freeze, and have delivered brutal accumulations of snow (of 5+ feet).
The region’s Meteorological Service have issued a strong of alerts of late for “persistent snowfall” — particularly in southern and central Mendoza, central and western Neuquén, and central of Río Negro.
Livestock farming is in a “critical state”, reports infobae.com.
This week, the Rio Negro government was forced to declared a State of Emergency and/or an Agricultural Disaster in 6 regions, which means farmers in the western province are now “exempt from taxes for a short time”.
This was the scene in Río Negro:
While many roads ACROSS Patagonia have become impassible:
Residents of remote regions have even required rescuing:
In addition, the historic snowstorms have also knocked-out power for many.
Outages in the city of Zapala and in the town of El Cholar have been common place of late. But it’s Chubut that appears to have been worst hit — snowstorms have left the city of Esquel and the entire Andean region without electricity and have taken-down at least 20 high-voltage towers in the El Escorial area that carry electricity to the Aluar plant, according to Civil Defense spokesperson.
This is a serious climatic situation, but it’s one brought-about by historic SNOW and COLD not this phantom catastrophic-heating the MSM keeps banging on about. No, the Grand Solar Minimum we at Electroverse keep banging on about appears to be intensifying, and soon it will be apparent to all.
The COLD TIMES are returning, the lower latitudes are REFREEZING, in line with historically low solar activity, cloud-nucleating Cosmic Rays, and a meridional jet stream flow. Even NASA appear to agree, if you read between the lines, with their forecast for this upcoming solar cycle (25) seeing it as “the weakest of the past 200 years,” with the agency correlating previous solar shutdowns to prolonged periods of global cooling here.
