Norway experiences freak snowfall in the middle of June

Jimi Bradshaw from Florida plays with snow for the first ever in Tromsø on Monday.
A blast of ice-cold wind from the North Pole is sending temperatures plummeting across northern Norway, with the city of Tromsø on Monday seeing June snowfall for the first time in living memory.

"There have been both sleet and snow showers tonight, and people have even observed snow settling on the ground," Trond Lien, a local meteorologist, told the Tromsø-based Nordlys newspaper. "This is very rare, and I cannot remember the last time it snowed on June 16. It must be a long time ago."

He said he had found reports indicating snowfall in the city during July a century previously, but had yet to find any record of snow in June.

Odd Arne Thomassen, a professional driver, told NRK that he had encountered roughly four inches of snow when driving over Kvænangsfjellet in North Troms on Monday morning.

Behind the Headlines: Earth changes in an electric universe: Is climate change really man-made?

This week on SOTT Talk Radio we discussed the recently released book by SOTT.net editors Pierre Lescaudron and Laura
Knight-Jadczyk, Earth Changes and the Human-Cosmic Connection.

While official science portrays the crazy weather, more frequent sinkholes, increased meteor fireball activity, and intensifying earthquakes as phenomena that are unrelated, research put together by Pierre and Laura strongly suggests that all this (and more!) is intimately connected and may stem from a common cause.

In times past, people understood that the human mind and states of collective human experience influence cosmic and earthly phenomena. How might today's 'wars and rumors of wars', global 'austerity measures', and the mass protest movements breaking out everywhere play into the climate 'changing'?

At higher altitudes, snow thickness reached 20 cm (8 inches) in Rize, Turkey.

Two more days of snowfall is expected.

Despite raging wildfires since January, the ground surrounding Alaska's shrinking lakes is refreezing

New permafrost is forming around Twelvemile Lake in Alaska.
But researchers pooh-pooh the evidence, insisting that the icy ground will only last another 70 years because of "global warming."

How did they come to that conclusion? Computer modeling, of course. It's amazing what you can make a computer do.


Some Alaskan lakes have shrunk since the 1950s, while others have expanded, says a recent article in Live Science. "Earlier studies suggest that melting permafrost plays a role in the shifting lake sizes," the article explains. "For example, lakes may drain away when the shallow permafrost below them thaws, like opening the drain in a tub .... where permafrost is thicker and melts more slowly, lakes may grow as the melting ice adds to their extent."

In other words, it makes no difference whether those lakes expand or shrink, it's still caused by global warming.

The ground is thawing? Blame global warming. The ground is freezing? Blame global warming.

As I said, it's amazing what you can make a computer do.

Icebergs still floating on Lake Superior in June

It may be June, but a Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources warden discovered some icebergs still afloat in Lake Superior near Madeline Island on Friday.

DNR Marine Warden Amie Egstad spotted the floating ice - which was covered in resting seagulls - while doing a routine check of commercial nets in the largest of the Great Lakes.

Comment: So much for 'global warming'! Considering the extremely cold winter and the unprecedented ice cover on the Great Lakes this winter, it's hardly surprising to see icebergs still floating on the lake:
Why it's a big deal: Half of the Great Lakes are still covered in ice

Record cold June morning on the Canadian Prairies

Of course, there's nothing unusual about record cold.

"We're a couple weeks shy of the official start to summer, but we won't be offended if you don't quite believe us," says the weather network.

Saturday morning (June 7) saw temperatures hovering around zero - yes, zero - degrees (32 F), as overnight temperatures plunged to uncomfortably cold levels.

Chilean Meteorological Office "surprised" by coastal snowfall

Image
They see the snow as "an anomaly" rather than as the beginning of a new Ice Age.

Chile, 06-06-2014: The snow that fell on Route 90 at the entrance of Pichilemu during the afternoon on Friday was "unusual," said La Primera Compañía de Bomberos (the First Fire Company) on its Twitter account

The phenomenon not only surprised the transiting area, but also the Chilean Meteorological Office who listed the snowstorm as an "anomaly".

According to meteorologist Patricio Silva "we had expected snowfall above 1,000 meters, but not in the coastal zone".

SOTT Exclusive: NASA blowing meteor smoke as noctilucent clouds intensify

NASA is blowing more 'meteor-smoke' in our eyes regarding the year's first (northern hemisphere) appearances of noctilucent clouds (NLCs) on May 24th. NASA outlet spaceweather.com claims:
Seeded by meteor smoke and boosted by the climate-change gas methane, noctilucent clouds have been spreading beyond the Arctic.

June 6th, 2014: Electric-blue NLCs over Bangor, Northern Ireland
Rising methane from below, the alleged exclusive result of human industrial activity, is NOT responsible for noctilucent clouds. Increasing atmospheric methane levels are primarily due to methane being released from deep under the oceans.

Increased NLCs are a 'canary in a coal mine' alright, but not in the way Official Science would have us believe.

Snowfall hits communities in north-eastern British Columbia

People in the community of Chetwynd, B.C. woke up to a surprise this morning.

Environment Canada says the town received up to five centimeters of snow today.

Temperatures are expected to rise above zero this afternoon, and the snow will turn to rain.

"Although snow this time of year is not unheard of for this region, some localized areas have received so much that today's accumulation in a few areas is quite rare," says Global BC meteorologist Kristi Gordon.

Chetwynd resident Carmen Gansevles says they sometimes get snow over May long weekend, but almost never in June.

She says they started getting flurries earlier this morning and there is now three inches of snow in her backyard.
