Climate models wrong on East Pacific... 'We don't know why this cooling is happening'

German online agriculture information site agrarheute.com here asks whether the climate models wrong since the East "East Pacific has been cooling down more and more over the past 30 years" and this "contrary to all predictions".

Modern agriculture knows that oceanic cycles have significant consequences for global agriculture.

No explanation for cooling

"Why does this part of the eastern Pacific contradict climate models, scientists ask, and they can't find a simple explanation," reports agriheute.com. The cooling of the East Pacific has defied the forecasts made by climate models, which predicted a warming due to "greenhouse gas" emissions.

The region of cooling is the ocean area that "stretches west of Ecuador" and "could reduce greenhouse gas warming by 30 percent". The false prediction by climate models risk misleading the agriculture industry, as it is known that ocean temperatures impact growing conditions around the world.

Argentinian ski resort buried with spring snow - 8.2 FEET in 24 hours

Las Leñas, Argentina, finds itself grappling with a staggering meteorological surprise today. The initial forecast projected a colossal one meter of snowfall within 24 hours, but the actual accumulation remains uncertain due to the nearly impassable conditions for measurement.

An official report eventually emerged, revealing that the base received a formidable one-meter snow deposit, while the summit was inundated with an astonishing 2.5 meters of snow. However, despite this awe-inspiring snowfall, the eagerly anticipated moment when enthusiasts can hit the slopes remains uncertain.

The reason lies in the sky-high avalanche danger that these extraordinary conditions have generated, underscoring the awe-inspiring power of nature's fury.

About 15cm of snow left on Apex Mountain on the morning of Sept. 20.
The ski season is still a couple months away

The first taste of winter arrived on Sept. 20 as Apex Mountain got an early dusting of snow.

About 15 centimetres fell on the mountain, but this early on it's not likely to hang around to the start of the ski season.

"It's not anything we get insanely excited about, I mean we're excited but we're not jumping up and down because we know it doesn't last," said Apex Resort general Manager James Shalman. "A couple of years ago we did have three feet of snow fall on Sept. 27, and we lost three-quarters of that before the season."

Greta poses for the cameras amid arrest

Greta Thunberg is willing to defy the authorities to fight climate change, or at least that is what they want you to believe. They paint this young girl as a radical activist when she is planted counter-opposition. Greta was arrested for the second time last week for refusing to leave a sit-in at a protest terminal. The picture above shows the true nature of her arrest.

Greta was not violently carted off by the authorities and thrown into a cell. The police held her up for the cameras for the best propaganda pictures. Reuters is reporting that the young globalist could face up to six months behind bars - yeah, right! "It is absurd that those who act in line with science should pay the price for it," Thunderg stated after her first arrest. She pleaded "not guilty" in June, citing that she was blocking the oil trucks from committing a climate catastrophe. "I believe that we are in an emergency that threatens life, health, and property. Countless people and communities are at risk both in the short term and in the long term," Thunberg said in court.
