Snow Chaos In ROMANIA: Army Called In To Save Trapped Travellers, -20C Expected

Romania uses army to save snow-trapped travellers (Reuters, Jan. 26, 2012):

* Temperatures expected to fall to -20C on Friday* PM says priority is to rescue stranded car travellers

* Blizzards also shut towns and port in Bulgaria (Updates rescue numbers, adds protests)

BUCHAREST — Romania has drafted in the army to rescue hundreds of travellers stranded by blizzards that dumped metres of snow on the ground on Thursday, derailing a train and forcing authorities to shut down motorways and ports and cancel flights.

Hundreds of schools were shut and by 2000 GMT dozens of towns and villages were still without electricity, as felled trees and strong winds brought down power lines.

Police and ambulance crews had rescued more than 1,600 people by Thursday evening but more than 1,000 cars were still snowed in on roads, Prime Minister Emil Boc said, and road authority officials were distributing tea and blankets.

Authorities have banned traffic on Romania’s only two motorways and several national roads until weather improved.

“I am asking you to not rest easy until you have made sure people’s lives are not in danger,” Prime Minister Boc told an emergency response meeting late on Thursday before heading out to capital Bucharest’s ringroad to inspect progress.

Snow Chaos in BULGARIA: Government Declares Code Red For Entire Country, Road Closures, Power Cuts

Code Red declared in Bulgaria under Road Traffic Act: minister (Focus News, Jan 26, 2012):

Sofia. “I declare Code Red for the entire country under the Road Traffic Act,” Bulgarian Minister of Regional Development and Public Works Lilyana Pavlova announced at a press conference, FOCUS News Agency reporter informs.
The traffic of freight vehicles of more than 10 tons is suspended throughout the entire country. No heavy-freight vehicles will be allowed to cross the Bulgarian border.
The ban is valid only for heavy-freight vehicles of more than 10 tons and not for buses and cars.
“In some places the snow-cover reaches 2 meters,” the minister remarked.

Road closures, power cuts as Bulgaria buckles under weight of snow (Sofia Echo, Jan. 27 2012):

Weighed down by heavy snow, Bulgaria woke up on January 27 2012 to closed roads, snow drifts of up to two metres and 121 villages without electricity.

The situation in Rousse remained severe, Bulgarian National Television said.

Efforts were being made to restore traffic access for lorries bound for Romania while at border crossings with Greece and Turkey, lorries were being held at parking bays.

States of emergency had been declared on January 26 in Svoge, Lovech, Ivanovo, Lisichevo, Batak, Velingrad and Popovo.

Mid-Summer Snow In New Zealand

Snow falling in South Island (New Zealand Herald, Jan. 22, 2012):

Mid-Summer snow is falling and settling on Porters Pass this afternoon in the South Island, along with hail and other winter conditions on Arthurs Pass reports WeatherWatch.co.nz.

WeatherWatch.co.nz’s West Coast reporter, Andy Thompson, says traffic is heavier than usual and describes the current weather conditions as “completely winter-like”.

Reports coming in from Southland to Canterbury talk of people lighting fires, turning on heaters and heat pumps and generally saying it feels like the middle of winter.

CO2:

‘Rises in C02 lag 800 years behind temperature rises. So temperature is leading CO2 by 800 years!’
– Prof. Ian Clark

(This was a really nice video, but ALL videos have been removed and http://eclipptv.com/ is gone and this quote is all that is left.)

CO2 is environmentally friendly and global warming and the carbon hype are a scam. Even IF there would be global warming, then CO2 would have nothing to do with it, because CO2 lags 800 years behind rising temperatures! That is a scientific fact and if you watch ‘An Inconvenient Truth (Lie)’ again, then you will see exactly that relation in Al Gore’s fake hockey stick graph:



Professor Luiz Carlos Molion

World headed for global cooling, says Brazilian meteorologist (Ice Age Now, Nov. 17, 2011):

9 Dec 09 – According to Professor Luiz Carlos Molion, Latin American representative in the World Meteorological Organization, post-doctorate in meteorology, and member of the Institute for Advanced Study in Berlin, reductions in carbon emissions will not affect climate.

“Carbon dioxide does not control the global climate,” says Molion. “The climate is very complex and could never be dominated by CO2.

“CO2 is due to increased temperature, says Molion. “When the temperature rises the oceans release more CO2.”

“The amount of carbon released by humans is very small, negligible in comparison with the natural flows of the oceans, soil and vegetation.” Nature launches 200 billion tons of carbon per year into the atmosphere. Man launches only six billion tons.”

“Of all the people here in Brazil, maybe I’m climatologist more senior,” says Molion.

Which is what makes one particular item on the group’s discussion agenda so tremendously significant. See if you can spot the one I mean:

Yep, that’s right. Global Cooling.


Entire paper here:

Measure temporary variations of shape and diameter of the Sun, as well as fine structure and dynamics of the granulation on the Service module of the Russian segment of the International Space Station:

Nowadays, a few years before the beginning of the upcoming global cooling, we are going through an unstable phase when the temperature will oscillate around the reached maximum without any substantial increase. In 2008 the global temperature on our planet not only did not rise but even fell down due to the decreasing (and record low over 30 years of observations from space) solar luminosity. The stabilization of the global Earth temperature in 1998–2005 and its downward tendency in 2006–2008 is an irrefutable evidence of the fact that our Sun is no longer able to warm the Earth the same way as in the past and that an anthropogenic global warming is a big myth. 1998–2005, being the warmest years for 150 years of weather observations, will stay on the peak of 2-century warming. By the middle of the ongoing century, the new (19th for the last 7500 years) little ice age similar to the Maunder one, will come. The global temperature will fall even without limitation of greenhouse gases emission by industrialized states. That is why the Kyoto treaty is useless so far and should be put off till at least 150 years later. However, climate changes on the planet will spread unevenly depending on the latitude. The fall of temperature will least affect the equatorial region of the Earth and will mostly influence the temperate climate regions. In whole, climate changes are not under the control of humans. A reasonable way to combat these changes is to maintain an economic growth in order to get prepared to alternating coolings and warmings. The coming global cooling will be replaced by a regular 2-century global warming only by the beginning of XXII century.

In short:

Russian scientist predicts 100 years of cooling (Ice Age Now, November 11, 2011):

See their cooling graph for the next 100 years!

In a study of cyclic behavior of the Sun, Russian scientists now predict 100 years of cooling.

These are not just any scientists. This forecast comes from astrophysicist Dr Habibullo Abdussamatov, head of the Russian segment of the International Space Station, and head of Space Research of the Sun Sector at the Pulkovo Observatory of the Russian Academy of Sciences.

The Russian scientists began by looking at a paper published by J. A. Eddy* in 1976 that documented the correlation between sunspot activity and corresponding large – and disruptive – climate changes on Earth.  Disruptive because the changes frequently lead to economic and demographic crises that affected the existence of entire nations.

Conducting research similar to Eddy’s, Russia’s Eugene Borisenkov** discovered a quasi 200- year cycle of global cooling during the past 7,500 years that correlates to times of sunspot minima similar to the Maunder minimum. (These were also times when any industrial influence was non-existent, Abdussamatov points out. )


Observed variations in 11-year sunspot activity (solid thin curve) and in 200-year solar activity (solid thick curve) and our forecast from 2009 to 2042 (dashed lines) (Abdussamatov H. I. KPhCB, 2007. 23, 97).

Our planet warms and cools in predictable 200-year cycles corresponding to 200-year variations in the size and luminosity of the Sun, the scientists found. Previous global warmings – of which there have been many – have always been followed by deep cooling.

The 200-year variations in sunspot activity and total solar irradiance (TSI) are the dominating reason for climate change, says Abdussamatov. “In whole, the solar cycles are a key to our understanding of different cyclic variations in the nature and society.”


TSI variations and sunspot activity since 1611 and our forecast (dashed lines) (Abdussamatov H. I. The Sun Dictates the Climate of the Earth. 2009, St. Petersburg, “Logos”, – 197 p.; The Sun Dictates the Climate. 4th International Conference on Climate Change in Chicago, May 2010.

Existence of the 11-year and 200-year solar cycles of identical and synchronized variations of luminosity, sunspot activity and diameter of the Sun is one of the most reliably ascertained facts in solar physics, says Abdussamatov.

“The study of physical processes on the Sun not only gives us an understanding of a large number of astrophysical questions, but also of the questions of geophysics, meteorology, biology and medicine. All energy sources used by humanity are linked to the Sun. The heat and light of the Sun ensured the development of life on the Earth, formed the deposits of coal, oil, gas etc.”

“All life on the Earth and its future conditions directly and almost in whole depend on the total solar irradiance (TSI).”
