Well at least we know why they were seeding the clouds north of Scotland. Welcome to the world of global weather control.

I think the OP has been reading too many corporate oil blogs like WUWT. The evidence is opposite to the hearsay he mentions.

There is the occasional extreme cold event where there is extremely high snow falls, but that is because half the arctic has disappeared. The cold has to go somewhere.

Care to explain? Are you saying there have been cloud seeding operations - using low flying light aircraft or ground based cannons to fire silver iodide into rain clouds in the hope of increasing precipitation - in the Atlantic to the north of Scotland? I don't suppose you have any, er, evidence?


And pray, how does this lead to a cold January in Alaska, a mild Dec and Jan in Europe or the current, quite, normal, cold spell in Europe? Any research papers? And no, youtube videos don't count as evidence. Nor do issues of The Beano from 1982.

Don't know about the weather in other places but it has been very warm where I am, S.TX, USA. Our winters are usually mild with a few "blue northers" thrown in just to keep us on our toes, but this year we have been running the AC almost everyday as the temps have been mostly in the low 80's; just enough to be uncomfortable. The usual avg. temp is about 65 for this time of year. And we are in the middle of the worst ever drought. TPTB try to talk around that little fact but they can only obfuscate so many times before they have to break down and admit it. The river that runs through my property is nothing but a big muddy ditch. I am so sad to see that as it was the only thing that made this place tolerable.

The weather is a changin', just don't know where it will finally end up. It probably won't be good for most of us though.

I'm in Northern Virginia and it's been very very warm. Doesn't seem like winter at all..let alone a mini ice age. Just two days ago it was almost 65 degrees F -- it's safe to say ice would melt in minutes in that temperature.

Sea temperature normal here in the UK at 8 deg,but VERY unusual to have had no frozen lakes by this time of the year.3 deg today and up to 7 on sunday,so definitely no ice age in the UK this time.

As an interesting "and finally" note...............the last ice age in the UK only saw the glacier getting as far south as Luton,so us suvvereners should be safe I'd hope

I don't know what you're talking about, OP.
Im in the states, on the east coast and we've had the
HOTTEST winter ever! I havent had to bust out
my winter coats this year soo...what?

I can't believe you people continue to read and comment on the OP's threads. His last thread was about his (totally without base) opinion that nothing can survive in space if it gets too far from the earth. Mindnumbing stupidity.

For the record, OP, it's been unseasonably warm and dry throughout the United States this Winter. Oh, why am I even bothering answering you? It's not like you've displayed any aptitude for logical or empirical rationale in your beliefs or arguments.

I have no idea what cold spell anyone is even talking about. I live in tennessee, and it usually snows here every single winter. Not only has it not snowed, but today it was 62 degrees. In January. It's mind blowing.

OP i think the word of the week for you should be "put up or shut up".

Either provide detailed feed back about your ideas and theories or show valid links to why you think this is so or stop making pointless threads that do nothing more than waste space on ATS.

To the MOD's i say this. You guys seems quick to delete threads you deem off topic on a thread that HAS no topic but dont seem too keen on making sure this site is filled with valid content. Do some background research onto the OP and notice his trend of NOT ANSWERING questions posted by other members. How the hell are we supposed to engage in debate if he/she doesnt even reply to the questions we pose??? Stop this madness and do your jobs. Enough is enough.

I live in Winterpeg (Winnipeg, Canada) - and it's been unbelievably amazingly warm. On the other hand, I hear it's been snowing in central India, and people there are terrified.

Weather patterns are changing. No doubt. But no ice age yet.

Mini Ice age? Not in this neck of the woods.

Here in Edmonton, AB (approx. 53°32′N 113°30′W) we have seen more above freezing weather this year than I can remember. Daily highs in the -15 to -25C and lows of -30 to -35C are pretty common during the winter months but this year, aside from two 'cold snaps' of normal weather lasting about 4-5 days each, the temperatures have been hovering around freezing with daily highs often hitting above freezing. We also hit mid-teens C in December! Add to that a green Christmas and maybe 10-15cm snow this season and it sure isn't a typical Edmonton winter.

If this is a mini-ice age then I've been living through a major one up until now.

seriously? it was almost 70o here in norther california. yes i know california, but in nor-cal we actually have real winters. usually 25-40 area but it has been in the 60s constantly. if anything we're entering a heat-age

TextFreezing Alaskan weather station where the mercury was heading BELOW -80F... until the battery ran out For a few hours this weekend, it looked like the weather monitoring station at Jim River Maintenance Camp in north-central Alaska might have broken the record low temperature for the whole United States. The thermometer Saturday on the unmanned device read 79 degrees below zero -- just one degree short of the country's lowest ever recorded temperature. Then the battery died -- apparently unable to hold a charge at such unspeakably frigid temperatures. The monitoring station stopped measuring the temperature, just as it looked like the cold might drip below the minus-80-degree mark. But it was all wrong, the National Weather Service says. The dying lithium battery is only rated to work properly at temperatures warmer than 40 degrees below zero. Meteorologists believe the monitoring station, which was a private device and not up to Weather Service standards, spit out false readings as it flickered and died. What's not in dispute, is that much of Alaska has faced an extraordinarily cold January -- even by the standards of the frozen Last Frontier state. On Sunday, the high in Circle Hot Springs, Alaska, was 49 degrees below zero. The low that day was minus 58 degrees -- breaking a record set in 1914 of minus 52

TextBritain to shiver in temperatures 'colder than the South Pole' as health chiefs say more than 1,500 people a week could die in the big freeze A cold snap that has left dozens dead across Eastern Europe will reach Britain by the weekend. Temperatures are set to plunge far below freezing point making the country even colder than the South Pole. Forecasters are expecting overnight temperatures of between -8c (18f) and -10c (14f) on Friday. The McMurdo research facility in Antarctica is currently recording -6c (21f) at night. The bitter cold has forced some countries to deploy their armed forces and set up emergency accommodation. Health chiefs have also started warning that as a result of the freezing conditions, more than 1,500 people a week could be killed by the weather.

in recent history of Humanity for several hundred years we had the Little Ice Age.


TextThe Little Ice Age (LIA) was a period of cooling that occurred after the Medieval Warm Period (Medieval Climate Optimum).[1] While not a true ice age, the term was introduced into the scientific literature by François E. Matthes in 1939.[2] It is conventionally defined as a period extending from the 16th to the 19th centuries,[3][4][5] though climatologists and historians working with local records no longer expect to agree on either the start or end dates of this period, which varied according to local conditions. NASA defines the term as a cold period between 1550 AD and 1850 AD and notes three particularly cold intervals: one beginning about 1650, another about 1770, and the last in 1850, each separated by intervals of slight warming.[6] The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) describes areas affected by the LIA: Evidence from mountain glaciers does suggest increased glaciation in a number of widely spread regions outside Europe prior to the 20th century, including Alaska, New Zealand and Patagonia. However, the timing of maximum glacial advances in these regions differs considerably, suggesting that they may represent largely independent regional climate changes, not a globally-synchronous increased glaciation. Thus current evidence does not support globally synchronous periods of anomalous cold or warmth over this time frame, and the conventional terms of "Little Ice Age" and "Medieval Warm Period" appear to have limited utility in describing trends in hemispheric or global mean temperature changes in past centuries... [Viewed] hemispherically, the "Little Ice Age" can only be considered as a modest cooling of the Northern Hemisphere during this period of less than 1°C relative to late 20th century levels.[7] Several causes have been proposed: cyclical lows in solar radiation, heightened volcanic activity, changes in the ocean circulation, an inherent variability in global climate, or decreases in the human population.

The question is how long will last and If average temperatures are normal as long as winter began very late.



Your not very bright. Are you.

Moving on.

This winter has been easy-going in the upper midwest of the USA. One of the nicer winters I've ever experienced. My guess is we'll get slapped with some sizable snow-falls in late March, but by then the sun will have enough power to eradicate all of it.

I live in the South, and this has been the warmest winter in memory. People are wearing shorts and the highs have been in the 50's and 60's. I think we building up to a massive climate shift. It is about time our mother shakes things up a bit.
