Colder climate brings ‘extreme weather’

The exaggerated climate crisis

The mainstream media miss - or ignore - the fact that it has been unusually cold in many places in both hemispheres. Alternating heat and cold suggests that there is unrest in the air, with greater temperature fluctuations and associated more severe weather.

The IPCC climate panel, the Swedish SMHI and others warn of a warmer climate. They say it will bring more extreme weather such as stronger winds and more rain and drought.

The implication is that whatever happens, it will be due to a warmer climate.

But they forget – or ignore or don’t know – that a warmer climate means smaller temperature differences and therefore smaller and weaker winds.

This is because winds are moving air masses. Warm air rises. Higher up, it cools. Cold air sinks and fills in from the sides as warm air rises. This creates constantly changing winds.

The greater the temperature differences, the more and stronger the wind. This is exactly what is happening now.

The mainstream media miss – or ignore – the fact that it has been unusually cold in many places in both hemispheres. Alternating heat and cold suggests turmoil in the air with larger temperature swings.

Satellites record that the global atmosphere has been cooling rapidly in recent years. Colder atmosphere shrinks. Then jet streams get more crowded and start to meander.

They let in warm air from the south and cold air from the north – and vice versa in the southern hemisphere. This is exactly what is happening now.

More extreme weather therefore indicates a colder rather than a warmer climate. But for now, it is not climate but weather. Climate can be said to be the long-term conditions for weather.

They do not look so promising with reduced solar wind and increased cosmic radiation. Then more clouds and precipitation will form with a cooling effect.

It’s slow, of course. But it is happening now.
