The Climate Change Hoax - 17 (Assaults on Faith, Family and Life Part 153)

What happened to global warming? Oh yes, the alarmists changed it to “climate change.” So is the world warming or cooling? Both actually, in cycles through the centuries.

What happened to melting sea ice? Now it is growing exponentially?

The science actually is not settled, contrary to the claims of the climate change alarmists.



The start of 2021 in Antarctica has been an unusually chilly one. In fact, the first half of January has been the coldest since 1978, according to data compiled by @LpdlcRamirez and @peikko763 on Twitter.

As of Jan. 19, the month-to-date temperature anomaly across Antarctic is approx. -0.5C, making this the continents coldest first 3-or-so-weeks of Jan. since 1978 (solar minimum of cycle 20), according to research conducted by @peikko163 on Twitter, who also notes that the Southern Hemisphere as a whole is suffering anomalous January chills not seen since 2012.

But this chill of solar minimum isn’t just confined to the Southern Hemisphere either, the mercury ACROSS the planet is tumbling. In one month global temperatures dropped by a whopping 0.26C: from 0.53C above the 1981-2010 avg. in Nov. 2020 to just 0.27C above the avg. in Dec. 2020 (UAH). This drop was in spite of a warming Arctic–a region expected to “heat” during times of otherwise “global” cooling (more on that below).

The Sun appears to be sliding into its next Grand Solar Minimum cycle–a multidecadal spell of reduced solar output where the solar disc can be devoid of sunspots for months or even years at a time. The result on Earth’s climate will be one of violent swings between extremes due to a weakening of the jet streams: intense bursts of heat will linger in one area, while a teeth-chattering chill will dominate nearby, and then the regions will “switch” — it is this unpredictable chopping and changing that will hasten the failure of our modern food production systems: crops will fail, on a large scale, and famine could quickly ensue.

Overall, Earth’s temperature trends colder during a Grand Solar Minimum, as the Sun’s output sinks lower and lower (increased cloud nucleation being one likely forcing). However, not ALL regions experience the chill: as with the previous GSM (the Maunder Minimum 1645-1715), areas such as the Arctic, Alaska, and S. Greenland/N. Atlantic actually warmed while the rest of the planet cooled — NASA reveals the phenomenon in their Maunder Minimum temperature reconstruction map:

Temp change between 1780 (a year of normal solar activity) and 1680 (a year within the depths of the Maunder Minimum) — NASA.


Antarctica’s unusual cold is having an impact on the its sea ice.

After being above average for much of the austral winter and spring, Antarctic sea ice extent has only increased-further into the summer months, to a level now tracking the 1979-1990 average.

In addition, sea ice extent at the south pole’s northern cousin, the Arctic, is also now growing exponentially: after a low starting point, Arctic Sea ice extent increased by 2.71 million km² (1.05 million m²) during the month of December. According to NSIDC data, this was a rate substantially greater than the 1981 to 2010 average December of 1.99 km² (780,000 m²). Furthermore, between Jan 5 and 17, Arctic sea ice experienced something of extra boon, gaining 966,000 km².

In conclusion, global ice (so Arctic + Antarctic combined) is now greater than anytime since 2016 with the recent exponential growth showing no signs of abating. The year 2021 is already giving the warm-mongers a headache.

Those charged with pushing the global warming narrative are spinning a yarn. Here is the scientifically-sound proof…

Unlike the IPCC, which tosses its thermageddon doomsday date back and forth like a hot potato, researchers who track the multimillennial plays of the cosmos (namely those of the Sun) routinely land on the year 2030 as being the date of ‘climate deterioration’: this in itself should serve as compelling evidence.

The COLD TIMES are returning, the mid-latitudes are REFREEZING in line with the great conjunction, historically low solar activity, cloud-nucleating Cosmic Rays, and a meridional jet stream flow (among other forcings).

Both NOAA and NASA appear to agree, if you read between the lines, with NOAA saying we’re entering a ‘full-blown’ Grand Solar Minimum in the late-2020s, and NASA seeing this upcoming solar cycle (25) as “the weakest of the past 200 years”, with the agency correlating previous solar shutdowns to prolonged periods of global cooling here.

Furthermore, we can’t ignore the slew of new scientific papers stating the immense impact The Beaufort Gyre could have on the Gulf Stream, and therefore the climate overall.
