A cold wave has driven down the temperature to minus 7 degrees Celsius these days in Mohe, China's northernmost city. However, local people don't mind the chill since the local authority started to activate the heating system a week ahead of the scheduled heating season.

With a new cold snap, sleet and light snow were forecast to hit Mohe on Saturday and Sunday, respectively. The daily low temperature would dip to minus 9 degrees Celsius on Sunday.

Xin Haiqi, workshop director of Mohe Huapeng Heating Co., Ltd., said the company has prepared sufficient coal reserves and can timely increase its heating supply in response to extreme weather to ensure residents a warm and comfortable indoor temperature in the upcoming winter.

The border city in Heilongjiang Province is one of China's coldest places in winter, where the heating period lasts up to eight months.

It has been visited by nearly two lakh devotees since its doors opened on May 22. The Gurudwara is located next to a lake, and it is said the 10th Sikh Guru, Gobind Singh, meditated there.

Looking at the state of our world, are the climate related disruptions the reason for the government events to distract from solar system cycles?

'We own the Science' brags UN chief who works with Google to suppress climate skeptics

Goolag

Once upon a time Google had the best search engine in the world but solo unfunded skeptics had all the fun and were outscoring the UN, academia, and official government sites.

So the UN stopped competing and just colluded with Google to rig the game:

Melissa Fleming: (Under-Secretary for Global Communications at the UN) "We partnered with Google. For example, if you Google 'climate change,' you will, at the top of your search, you will get all kinds of UN resources. We started this partnership when we were shocked to see that when we Googled 'climate change,' we were getting incredibly distorted information right at the top. So we're becoming much more proactive. We own the science, and we think that the world should know it, and the platforms themselves also do. But again, it's a huge, huge challenge that I think all sectors of society need to be very active in." (Full transcript here)

Naturally this bragging was at the World Economic Forum — the hippest conference-cum-holiday club that can be called a tax deduction for the uber-ultra-rich and their minion political puppets.

Where else could people say smug totalitarian lines with a straight face: "We Own The Science and we think the world should know it".

Forget the blame game, Nordstream sabotage is about the Great Reset & nothing else

море
Last night it was reported that "blasts" had damaged both Nordstream pipelines that carry gas exported from Russia to Germany and other nations across northern Europe.

As a result, large amounts of natural gas were leaking into the Baltic sea, and supplies through the pipeline were completely shut off.

The alleged incident has caused a furious round of blame tennis, with accusations flying back and forth across what - for the sake of simplicity - we'll call Iron Curtain 2.0.

The European Union has claimed the pipes were "sabotaged", but doesn't directly blame anyone in their statement.

The Telegraph is already blaming actively the Russians, specifically Western Bogeyman President Vladimir Putin. Headlining "Why Putin would want to blow up Nord Stream 2, and the advantages it gives him"

On the flip side, the Russians have said the idea they would sabotage their own pipeline is "stupid"

Some Western alternate media have pointed to Joe Biden's vow to totally shut down Nordstream 2 back in February as a sign the US was behind the alleged attack.

The former Polish defence minister has come right out and said that NATO forces blew up the pipeline, according to Forbes.

The question - one it seems I keep asking the last two years - is "does it really matter?"

'Green' energy is a Scam. It isn't MEANT to work.

Good news, everybody! A new report from the eggheads at Oxford University assures us that switching to renewables will actually save us trillions of dollars!

You heard that right. It won't cost us trillions of dollars to build out a completely new global energy grid infrastructure based on technology that is still under development and then to switch the entire global economy onto it. No, don't be silly! It's going to save us trillions of dollars. TRILLIONS, I tell you!

Now, I know what some of you skeptical Corbett Reporteers out there are thinking: how can that be? After all, as The Manhattan Contrarian blog points out in a recent post on the "Cost of the Green Energy Transition," the disruption to the European gas supply caused by the Ukraine kerfuffle is already wreaking havoc on Europe's economy, with Germans bracing for a 13% rise in their regulated consumer gas bills this year and UK residents facing a near tripling of their own energy bills. And that's before the Great Resetters start shutting off the pipes for real and forcing the hoi polloi on to the wind/solar/unicorn fart "green" energy grid.

But why believe the actual economic pain you're experiencing (heating your own home this winter) when your Oxfordian overlords have big, fat reports (that no one will read) telling you how much money will be saved by switching over to a green energy grid? After all, the BBC and MSN and Nature World News are tripping all over themselves to repeat these findings unquestioningly, so who are you to bring up any of the pesky "facts" that contradict this comforting fairy tale?

Oh, OK, I'll drop the act. The latest Oxford study — along with the many similar pronouncements made in recent years that the transition onto the green energy grid will be painless (or even profitable) — is easily debunkable propaganda. But it is pernicious propaganda. It's designed to get the plebes to actively embrace their own enslavement in the name of saving Mother Earth, and — up to this point — it has been remarkably effective in that goal.

In truth, the green energy sustainable enslavement grid is a scam from top to bottom. But it is not simply a pie-in-the-sky pipe dream being sold to a gullible and ignorant public. It's worse than that. It is a carefully crafted lie that is designed to lead us into our new role as serfs on the neofeudal plantation in the coming green dystopia.

Want to know the details? Let's dig in.
