The Sakha Republic, also known as Yakutia, has broken a myriad of low temperature records as winter continues to encroach into Spring 2020.

In the village of Talon, the mercury dropped to a nipple-hardening -30.7C (-23.3F), shattering the previous April record: the -27.3C (-17.1F) set in 1966 (solar minimum of cycle 19).

No trace of missing man as more avalanches hit Lahaul
Even as the missing farmer of Bargul village of Lahaul, who was hit by an avalanche on April 13, remains untraced, the higher areas of Kullu and Lahaul have experienced more avalanches in the past few hours after the region received heavy snow.

Two days after Border Roads Organisation (BRO) cleared snow from Rahni nullah on Manali-Rohtang pass highway, a massive avalanche again blocked the highway on Sunday.

Another avalanche near Koksar had also blocked the highway. Border Roads Organisation officials said work is on to clear the debris. Rohtang Pass has received over 60cm of snow in the last three days.

Greenland has gained 27+ gigatons of snow and ice over the past 5 days alone - MSM silent

Greenland ice sheet


Despite decades of doom-and-gloom prophecies, Greenland's Ice Sheet is currently GAINING monster amounts of "mass" — 27 gigatons over the past 5 days alone (April 14 - 18, 2020).


Crucial to the survival of a glacier is its surface mass balance (SMB) - the difference between accumulation and ablation (sublimation and melting). Changes in mass balance control a glacier's long-term behavior, and are its most sensitive climate indicators.

On the back of substantial SMB gains over the past few years, the Greenland ice sheet looks set to continue that trend in 2019-20. From April 14 through April 18, 2020, the world's largest island added a monster 27+ gigatons to its ice sheet. According to climate alarmists, this simply shouldn't be happening in a warming world. In fact, it might as well not be happening as developments like these NEVER receive MSM attention, meaning alarmists are NEVER privy to the full and unalarming picture...
