The historic Arctic front crippling Texas’s power system, sending energy prices soaring to record levels, is intensifying with at least 5 million people across the U.S. now plunged into darkness, unable to heat their homes.
Polar cold is once again riding anomalously-far south on the back of a weak and wavy meridional jet stream flow–a phenomenon predicted to increase over the coming years/decades as the Grand Solar Minimum (low solar activity) tightens its grip.
Texans are feeling the brunt of this latest blast with over 4 million people across the Lone Star State now left without power in freezing conditions and drifting snow. But even as far up as North Dakota homes are losing power in the midst of an unprecedented deep freeze that continues to break thousands upon thousands of low temperature records, daily.
“I’ve been following energy markets and grid issues for a while, and I cannot recall an extreme weather event that impacted such a large swath of the nation in this manner — the situation is critical,” said Neil Chatterjee, a member of the U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.
North America’s big freeze is just the latest in a chain of extreme cold-weather events that have brought down power grids and upended energy markets globally from Japan, China and Pakistan, to the UK and France in recent months.
Adding to the concerns of Texans’ will be the latest GFS forecast (shown below) which reveals Arctic conditions could run into March (with maybe a brief reprieve Feb. 23 to 26) extending the misery and risking prolonged power outages:
Even filthy warm-mongers NOAA, with their skewed, UHI-ignoring temperature dataset, can’t hide the cold — according to their latest data point (from Feb. 13–so before this current round of polar cold even took hold) it is revealed that during the previous 7 days a total of 1,916 low temperature records were broken across the U.S. vs just the 100 for record warmth.
And once the numbers for this week’s deep-freeze are included we could be looking at over 6,000+ new low temperature records for the past week alone.
The website coolwx.com has an unofficial animation showing the new low benchmarks set from Feb. 9 to Feb. 16 — check out the influx of new records on Feb. 14, 15 and 16 in particular:
I’m sick of the mainstream lies — lies made a thousand times worse due to the climatic reality that is actually barreling towards us.
Heed the warnings laid down from the past: prolonged bouts of low solar activity have ALWAYS lead to global cooling, they have ALWAYS resulted in the fall of empires, and ALWAYS of the catastrophic and widespread failure of harvests.
Today, at a time when Solar Cycle 25 should be “ramping-up” the Sun has instead been eerily quiet — it has been “blank” (devoid of sunspots) for the past 12 consecutive days now (as of Tue, Feb. 16) which makes for 29 spotless days in 2021, or 62%.
I’m off to construct a fence around my 5,000 ft² crop patch — pesky sheep.
The COLD TIMES are returning, the mid-latitudes are REFREEZING, in line with the great conjunction, historically low solar activity, cloud-nucleating Cosmic Rays, and a meridional jet stream flow (among other forcings).
Both NOAA and NASA appear to agree, if you read between the lines, with NOAA saying we’re entering a ‘full-blown’ Grand Solar Minimum in the late-2020s, and NASA seeing this upcoming solar cycle (25) as “the weakest of the past 200 years”, with the agency correlating previous solar shutdowns to prolonged periods of global cooling here.
Furthermore, we can’t ignore the slew of new scientific papers stating the immense impact The Beaufort Gyre could have on the Gulf Stream, and therefore the climate overall.
Prepare accordingly— learn the facts, relocate if need be, and grow your own.
