What seems to be record heat touted non-stop in the Netherlands matches the accounts in 1540 of "The Solar Year" with temperatures so hot the people of the day though the event would be remembered for generations to come as crops didn't grow, water ran out and there were plagues and mice infestations. Quebec moves up mandatory snow time dates two weeks and strange plasma sighted in the skies of Chile that matches petroglyphs globally.

Easternmost Finland awoke to wintry conditions.
Winter arrived in eastern Finland on Friday morning, with 4-5cm of snow falling in the morning and more on the way.

"Easternmost Finland may get 10 cm on Friday," says Yle meteorologist Matti Huutonen.

The first snow was recorded in the morning in the cities of Jyväskylä and Kuopio, where 2 cm had fallen by 9 am.

The Finnish Meteorological Institute (FMI) defines the first snowfall as at least one centimetre of snow on the ground at 9am at one of its weather stations. Huutonen says that Eastern Finland's first snow came about a week earlier than usual. Northern Lapland received its first snow on Sunday.

Comment: Another report has the first snow falling in Finland on the somewhat earlier date of Wednesday the 18th of September rather than Sunday the 29th.

SOTT Earth Changes Summary - September 2019: Extreme Weather, Planetary Upheaval, Meteor Fireballs

September 2019 will be remembered as the month when 16-year-old prophet Greta Thunberg spoke at the UN to warn the world of global catastrophe if people didn't change their ways. At least, that's how the media apparently wanted people to remember September.

Away from that circus, increasing weather extremes and seismic upheaval continues apace.

Last month, fatal flash-flooding in Morocco and Algeria killed 18 people; Hurricane Dorian absolutely wrecked the Bahamas; severe flooding across southeast Asia and India killed hundreds; Spain was hit with its worst storm system in at least 140 years; destructive earthquakes hit Kashmir and Indonesia; dozens of meteor fireball events lit up the night sky; and early snowfall and cold temperature records were broken across the northern hemisphere.

So, should we panic? Greta certainly thinks so. She wishes people would do something about the unfolding climate chaos, but she doesn't understand that nothing can be done to stop it because climate is neither controlled nor mitigated by human CO2 emissions.

A 'tipping-point' is likely upon us - she's right about that - but if there's a shift, it'll be into ice age conditions. While people have been misled into paying 'green' taxes, governments have been deluded into divesting of secure fuel sources right when they ought to have been manically hoarding it...

Hiding data is one of the key underlying principles of climate alarmism. The other two are data tampering and cherry picking. This video covers all three.

The Climate Inquisition
Climate scientists who speak out against the orthodoxy are treated in much the same way as those who spoke out against the geocentricism consensus of 16th century. Climate alarmists are taking science back to the Dark Ages.

Dead seabirds near Nome, Alaska, August 2019
Biologists in Alaska have again seen massive seabird die-offs this summer, or "wrecks," as some experts call them, extending from May into last month.

According to the National Park Service, reports received by mid-August documented thousands of dead short-tailed shearwaters from Bristol Bay, and lower numbers of other types of birds, found deceased in the Northern Bering and Chukchi Seas. This marks the fifth year in a row Alaska has seen mass seabird mortality events.

"Of all the carcasses we've collected and sent in, and that people have examined or looked at in any way, it's starvation. The birds are dying of starvation," said Kathy Kuletz seabird section lead for Alaska with the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service.

Kuletz said scientists still can't determine why hundreds and hundreds of birds, of a variety of species, are washing up on Alaska's shores, starving to death. According to Kuletz, it's possible that toxins from harmful algal blooms weakened the birds, preventing them from foraging, cannot be ruled out.

Namibia experiencing worst drought in 90 years, over 60,000 livestock perished

Namibia drought
Namibia is currently experiencing the worst drought in 90 years and is finding ways to deal with climate change and stimulate agriculture in the future, Speaker of Parliament Peter Katjavivi said on Wednesday.

He was addressing parliamentarians and non governmental organizations on the current state of sustainable natural resource management in Namibia meant to find ways of unlocking a bioeconomy potential.

Katjavivi said for more than two years, the Namibia economy is also severely affected by an economic downturn.

Katjavivi added that there is a need to find ways to deal with natural calamities as more than 60 percent of the population in Namibia depend directly or indirectly from agriculture, forestry as well as freshwater fishery to maintain their livelihoods.

Comment: According to the ministry of agriculture, over 60 000 livestock, including 41 949 cattle, 10 377 sheep, 25 651 goats and 584 donkeys have perished due to drought between October 2018 and July this year. About 312 horses have also died it has been reported.
