Toronto Broke Yet Another Cold Record
Our extreme cold temps went like this:
January 4/2018 - High 14.9F or -9.5 Celsius: Low -0.9 F or -18.2 C
January 5/2018- High 3.7 F or- 15.7 C : Low -5.4 F or -20.8 C
January 6/2018- High 3.7 F or - 15.7 C: Low - 11.2 F or -24.0 C
Forgot yesterday- Windchills made it even colder
Today we're hovering right around the freezing. Tonight is set to be a low of - 4 C
Definitely more in line with what is usual for my stomping grounds.
Let's talk Great Lakes- Cause it's where I live!
Great Lakes Total Ice Coverage Hit 29.5 Percent in Very Short Order!
|Great Lakes Total Ice Cover as of January 07/18 29.5 percent|
Ice coverage was 29.5 percent as of January 07/2018
With Lake Erie’s coverage coming in at about 85%. Accurately 84.7%
|Lake Erie Ice Concentration 84.7 percent|
Lake Erie is down to 81% as of January 09/2018
I've been out at the Lake. Was there yesterday. It's ice, ice and more ice. Hubby and I were joking that we could walk across the Lake to the US-
Interestingly, NOAA had predicted that the Great Lakes Coverage would be “Below Normal” at only 26%
Great Lakes ice cover forecast recalculated, with total coverage down to 26 percent
Ooops, I guess they got that wrong! And we have months to go. If the weather stays unseasonably warm from now till the beginning of March, which is pretty doubtful, NOAA has already called this one wrong!
If the total ice forecast was there only error?
“Now, the Great Lakes overall are looking at a mere 26 percent ice coverage, with Lake Erie prognosticated to freeze the most, at 48 percent coverage.”
NOOA got that double wrong because Lake Erie hit 84.7 percent ice coverage in this recent freeze.
Speaking of flash freezes- We had those ships stuck in the St Lawrence Seaway System
January 6/18 it was reported that every effort was being made to thaw a ship frozen into the Lock since January 01/18
Every effort is being made to free an ocean-going vessel, stuck in a lock since New Year’s Day, that has delayed the closing of the St. Lawrence Seaway system on both sides of the border, says Andrew Bogora, spokesman for the St. Lawrence Seaway Management Corp.
“At present there are three tugs attempting to help with the extrication of the Federal Biscay,” says Bogora.
The seaway was to close on Dec. 31, but a snap freeze and very heavy ice conditions on the St. Lawrence River, from Kingston to Montreal, pushed the date back.
Finally the ship was freed- and it’s soybean cargo is on it's way from Chicago to Turkey
Krafft said boilers had been brought in to thaw and melt the ice, using high-pressurized steam, inside the Snell Lock, at Massena, N.Y.Today there are claims being made that the Iran Protests are Due to “Global Warming”- Seriously, this is the absolute baloney, garbage, nonsense that is being put forth as the reason for these protests.
A release from the Saint Lawrence Seaway Development Corp. - which operates the seaway on behalf of the U.S. Department of Transportation on the American side of the border - said it was a major effort over the last 24 hours to melt the ice around the vessel.
“The vessel exited the lock earlier this afternoon (Saturday) with tug assistance. The vessel is now tied up along the upper approach wall to the lock,” said the release.
It said the effort to free the Federal Biscay, which became stuck on New Year’s Day, lasted several days and involved the "hard work of many individuals under severe weather conditions." At least three tugs had been trying to free the vessel, with no success, before the steam boilers were brought in.
Scientific American no less. Wild speculation at it’s most crazeeeee....
“Barbara Slavin, director of the Future of Iran Initiative at the Atlantic Council.This exact same claim was made regarding Syria, by self proclaimed authority figures and regurgitated by agenda pushing 5 eyes msm and alt media. Though it was later clarified that the scientific evidence for the Syrian claim was so thin as to be considered tenuous. Tenous: lacking a sound basis, as reasoning; unsubstantiated; weak: Yah, tenuous sounds exactly right!
She said the role of climate change on the protests is "massive" and underreported by the media.
Another AGW Lie Bites the Dust:"Climate Change Fuelled Syrian War"
“There is no sound evidence that global climate change was a factor in sparking the Syrian civil war,” said University of Sussex Professor Jan Selby, one of the study’s co-authors, in a statement.A lack of evidence never stops liars from lying. Same spin, different destabilization campaign.
“It is extraordinary that this claim has been so widely accepted when the scientific evidence is so thin.”
