The map below shows a glimpse of this cold event as it progresses to April 28 th. This will continue until May 9 th , and the corporate media will not be able control that. Expect silence from the media for the next week and a half or so about weather headlines, unless they are tornados or something big.
Now, look at all the headlines with record cold across the Northern Hemisphere for the last week of April. Heavy snow is almost everywhere. Anchorage Alaska and Alaska in general was also with record snowfalls. Over in Russia, record cold is threatening the crops, in fact record cold is across so many places in Russia. Turkey had surprise snowfalls as well. Also, there was record snowfall in Morocco yet again, but, the most surprising one is North Carolina, snow in the mountains there is such an outlier.
A glimpse into the average temperature anomalies on the monthly changes for the US Continental Temperature Stations. Over at the far right is where we are, and as can be seen, it has been kind of cold since This seems to be a trend, an indication of Grand Solar Minimum. Over to Europe, cold, what will happen with the buds from the trees? If those are touched by this cold, they will be gone. Some of these temperatures are going to be below freezing, wherever you see that incredibly light purple. This is again another multi-week event. The cold is going to move all the way to Morocco through May 9 th.
Morocco has been in my radar for quite some time, from about with snow falls and record rains again and again. It is actually snowing in places that has never snowed before. Additionally, Morocco has records that go back several hundred years, so when we see snows that we have not seen in an official record for years back in the past, well maybe it is a year cycle. Or maybe it is something heavier.
The amount of precipitation going down in Morocco could be a canary in the North African coal mine, if you will. I started digging into flooding events across Morocco from the Mid-Holocene some years ago. So, we have to go back 6, years, but you can see the main grouping of floods in the chart below, which is about 4, years before in spikes up to a thousand years before present. When we go back to the Mid-Holocene, let us say 6, years ago, where the amount of rainfall was mapped out, and then compare it to what we have today, their estimate for the Atlas Mountain is literally 5 times the amount of rainfall compared to what we are receiving right now.
Record rains piling on record rains would indicate a climate shift, for sure. You can do some of your research on this. The map of Morocco is at your disposal to do your own research.
Increasing occurrence of cold and warm extremes during the recent global warming slowdown
Middle East was being baked with headlines loving this map here for the corporate media, because it was able to prove that some place got hot. As temperatures flipped from that kind of heat, to a full week of 25 to 30 degrees Fahrenheit below normal temperatures, it went from red hot to cold blue. That will probably not create a lot of headlines, because that is not the narrative that the Global Warming crowd wants to push to usher in a global carbon tax. Egypt, Jordan Turkey, parts of Syria, as well as Iraq experienced well below normal cold.
This may explain some of the record flooding happening across areas in North Africa. They now have abundant crop yields this year due to increased rainfalls. The amount of rainfall due to a single storm in Algiers is more than double the full amount of rain for April. Rather, the south warmed instead at the expense of a cooler north through massive redistributions of heat that were set off by the orbital forcing.
Oceanic CO 2 was vented up to the atmosphere by the same redistributions.
The north then warmed later in response to higher CO 2 and a reduced albedo from smaller ice sheets. Records from the center of Antarctic extend back , years and cover six long cycles [ Petit et al. Both kinds of records show that Antarctica warmed and cooled along with the level of CO 2 in the atmosphere. The problem is that the relationship between Antarctic temperatures and atmospheric CO 2 has been interpreted very differently over the two time scales.
The CO 2 increases also lag slightly behind the warmings in Antarctica, as shown in more detail by Ahn and Brook . Thus, the greenhouse effect from atmospheric CO 2 clearly did not make Greenland or Antarctica warmer and cooler over the millennial time scale, and a mechanism is needed to explain why the temperatures in Antarctica rose and fell along with atmospheric CO 2.
Figure 1 includes the most recent big transition, which took place between 10, and 20, years ago. Can two such disparate views both be correct? Both kinds of transitions, millennial and long term, seem to involve displacements of heat that allow the south to warm at the expense of the north. The displacements over the longer cycles are simply larger versions of the millennial displacements. Atmospheric CO 2 rises and falls via the displacements that warm and cool the south.
The age of a termination is the time when the northern ice sheets are wasting away most rapidly. If the production of denser water is reduced in one hemisphere it must increase in the other to compensate.
Keep Environmental Journalism Alive
From this perspective, the seesaw should make one hemisphere warmer and then the other. This is not quite what we see, however.
So, when the south warms during the millennial events, the temperature difference between the hemispheres is actually flattened or even reversed. The stress from the westerlies on the ocean draws old deep water up to the surface from the interior. New deep water sinks in the North Atlantic to compensate for the water drawn up by the winds in the south [ Toggweiler and Samuels , ].
Thus, the winds over the channel draw water from the middle depths of the ocean up to the surface and push it away to the north. As the upwelled water moves northward it takes up solar heat that would otherwise warm Antarctica and carries this heat across the equator into the North Atlantic [ Crowley , ; Toggweiler and Bjornsson , ]. This leads to a cooler south and a warmer north.
According to Toggweiler et al. In this position, the westerlies were not in a good position to draw middepth water to the surface around Antarctica. According to Anderson et al. The southern westerlies then shifted to the south along with the trades. This shift put the southern westerlies squarely over the ACC, where they began drawing warmer and saltier middepth water to the surface. This is how the temperatures in Antarctica and the level of CO 2 in the atmosphere managed to rise together during the big transitions. Thus, precessional cycles, like the millennial events, alter the temperature contrast between the hemispheres.
The main new idea taken up in this paper is that precessional cycles and millennial events are related and that they come together every , years or so to produce to produce a giant millennial event, which features an outsized warming of Antarctica. This leads to a well known asymmetry in the trade winds that flank the ITCZ.eventsrj.com/images/2019-08-01/5080-toi-qui.php
Seasons in the Northern and Southern Hemispheres
This causes the southern trades to shift off the equator to the south and leads to especially warm temperatures along the equator in the eastern equatorial Pacific. Our claim, following Anderson et al. The southward displacement in the tropics then led to a more poleward position for the westerly band further south. In this case, the increased summer insolation warms the land more than the adjacent ocean and causes the ITCZ over the land to shift into the hemisphere that is receiving more insolation [ Wang et al.
Timmermann et al. When the insolation is more intense during northern summers, the SSTs north of the equator are warmer than normal and the ITCZ and trade winds are shifted more strongly into the Northern Hemisphere. When the insolation is more intense during southern summers, the temperature contrast across the equator is relatively flat and the ITCZ and trade winds are shifted toward the equator and the south Figure 3.
Lisiecki et al. Barrows et al. Antarctica is cooler at the same times [ Kawamura et al.

The explanation to be entertained here is that the southern westerlies are stronger or more poleward shifted when the ITCZ is closer to the equator, as they appear to be during the millennial events.
