Climate change is a religion whose followers behave like members of the Inquisition; it’s a condition where the cure is causing far more damage than the alleged disease; it’s a recipe for killing jobs, lowering standards of living and hurting the poor…
Some of us knew this already. But you rarely hear it so trenchantly expressed by a former world leader – as it was in London yesterday by Aussie ex-Prime Minister Tony Abbott in a hard-hitting, must-read speech for the Global Warming Policy Foundation.
On October 3, the mercury plunged to -7.3C in the city of Magnitogorsk, easily breaking the previous record of -5,0C set in 1955.
In other parts of the Urals, the temperature is running 6-8 degrees below the norm.
Magnitogorsk, a city of 440,000, lies about one thousand miles east and slightly south of Moscow.
Up to 12 inches of snow in southwestern Saskatchewan – Hazardous winter conditions expected – Highway closures likely
Monday 02 October 2017 (Excerpts)
The first winter storm of the season to affect southern Alberta will also hammer the southwestern corner of Saskatchewan today.
A picture is worth a thousand words.

According to data from The Danish Meteorological Institute, since hitting its earliest minimum extent since 1997, Arctic sea ice has been expanding at a phenomenal rate.
As notalotofpeopleknowthat blog details, it is already greater than at the same date in 2007, 2008, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2015.
Put another way, it is the fourth highest extent in the last ten years.
Even more remarkably, ice growth since the start of the month is actually the greatest on record, since daily figures started to be kept in 1987.
Not something we see too often just two days into fall, says meteorologist.
Autumn cancelled – Straight to winter – Snowplows deployed
Heavy early-season snowfall forced closure of state Route 190 and Route 224 at Guardsman Pass, according to the Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT).
UDOT also reported that state Route 224 just past Park City Hall in Summit County was closed along with Albion Basin Road, above Alta Ski Resort.
Officials in Alta reported 8 inches of snow on the ground in places.
Snow arrived early in northern Spain this week, much earlier than normal.
The Picos de Europa mountain range saw 5 cm of snowfall, a record for this early in September. (Not much, maybe, but still a record.) Other mountainous regions of Cantabria are likewise blanketed in white.
It’s also cold. The mercury has plummeted in the Pyrenees, dropping to as low as -10C overnight.
Breaks record set more than 60 years ago.
26 Sep 2017 – A new record low temperature was registered in Omsk today.
The mercury plummeted to -6.2 degrees C, breaking the previous record for the date of -4.5C, which was set more than 60 years ago in 1955.
Temperatures in the area are abnormally cold, running 5-10 degrees C below the climatic norm.
You really can’t make this stuff up!
It’s official: The last vestiges of common sense have now finally gone out the window. The Washington Times is reporting that climate alarmists are calling for those who do not buy into the catastrophic man-made global warming narrative to be jailed … for murder! That’s right folks; if you don’t accept the idea that humans are causing temperatures to soar at an alarming rate and destroying the planet, you’re a murderer – and must be punished as such.
Recent headlines clearly reflect the increasing frustration felt by climate change fanatics.
A September 1 headline in Outline declared, “Climate change denial should be a crime,” with writer Brian Merchant claiming, “In the wake of Harvey, it’s time to treat science denial as gross negligence — and hold those who do the denying accountable.”
An article a week later in the Nation boldly stated that, “Climate Denialism Is Literally Killing Us,” with the writer angrily declaring that “murder is murder” and “we should punish it as such.”
An advert today describes the real climate change we should afraid of, discusses how past CO2 levels did not cause dangerous global warming, and extra CO2 has a smaller and smaller effect, then connects failed climate models with rising electricity bills.
Really dangerous climate change — The next ice age
Prudent Australian farmers take into account past climate events and provide for the risk of potential droughts and floods. No such past climate events have been taken into account with climate models based on theory and assumptions to predict the future. Unfortunately the predictions of temperature from all the climate models have a record of exceeding the measured temperatures by a large margin for the last twenty years.
