Meanwhile, elsewhere on planet Earth things are decidedly cool . . . such that some might say a new Ice Age cometh . . .

Or not. For what we are told cometh oft dependeth upon political agenda

Whilst those running the Climate Crisis psyop scour the globe to cherry-pick hotspots they can pass off as human-caused global warming and whilst a complicit MSM does its best to rivet our attention on those hotspots, the planet’s growing number of cold spots get ignored.The UK for instance, whilst not mentioned in the featured article below, has just witnessed a cool Spring, a cool June (apart from a brief two-day “heat wave”) and is now putting up with an unseasonably cool July (apart from a very brief hot spell the media tried to tout as the hottest days in the history of the universe or some such thing).

Consequently many Brits are somewhat bemused by news stories that the planet is ablaze. As are the inhabitants of places all over the world currently experiencing unseasonal cool.

It would be easy enough, were the media so instructed by its puppet masters, to cherry pick all the unusually cold areas and with the help of some sly economy with the truth and dodgy stats, convince everybody they are irrefutable evidence that we are entering a new ice age. Then invent a pseudoscientific theory to explain why it is humanity’s fault for prospering (particularly when told not to by various governments) and confidently predict that all of civilisation will be under a hundred feet of ice by 2050 . . . etcetera.

Be all that as it may, we hope you find the following featured article informative.

SUMMER SNOW IN SKARDU, PAKISTAN; COLD JUNES FOR TURKEY, SLOVAKIA, SERBIA & BERMUDA; RECORD-SNOWY WINTER RAISES GREAT SALT LAKE; + YOSEMITE’S TIOGA ROAD STILL CLOSED DUE TO SNOW

SUMMER SNOW IN SKARDU, PAKISTAN

Unexpected summer snowfall has hit Deosai, Skardu — breaking a record.

“Snow in July is a sentence you don’t hear everyday,” reads the opening line of an aajenglish.tv article; while “January-like weather is hitting Deosai in the month of July,” is pipanews.com‘s take.

The rare snow and plunging temperatures have surprised the summer tourists who flock to Pakistan’s iconic Gilgit-Baltistan region–formerly known as the Northern Areas.

A full 5 inches of snow has fallen, the valley’s first July flakes in almost 20 years.

COLD JUNES FOR TURKEY, SLOVAKIA, SERBIA & BERMUDA

The following four country’s endured colder-than-average Junes (adding to those documented last week):

TURKEY

June 2023 in Turkey closed with an average temperature of 21.4C (70.5F), which is 0.45C below the multidecadal average:

SERBIA

The landlocked central/southeast European nation of Serbia, situated at the crossroads of the Pannonian Basin, also registered a cold month of June, as much as -1.4C below the norm in Zaječar, for example:

Similarly in nearby Slovakia, located some 300km to the north, a cooler than average month was experienced here, too.

BERMUDA

And lastly —for now— June 2023 in Bermuda was very cool and exceptionally wet.

The average temperature closed at 24.3C (75.7F), which is a full 1C below the multidecadal average.

Total rainfall was registered at 297.4mm (11.7 inches), with the norm at just 122.7mm (4.8 inches).

The cool and rainy conditions impacted sea surface temperatures, too, which dipped to 25C — a notable -0.3C below average.

RECORD-SNOWY WINTER RAISES GREAT SALT LAKE

Winter’s record-smashing snowfall continues to melt and flow down through the creeks, streams and rivers that feed Utah’s Great Salt Lake, raising its peak level this season an astonishing 6 feet (1.8 meters) from last year.

Despite mainstream caterwaulings of “megadrought! megadrought!”, local farmers, skiers and homeowners are instead rejoicing over the rise of the Great Salt Lake: “There’s finally some life back in the marina,” said Tyler Oborn, a pontoon guide.

‘But this joy may be short lived,’ so informs our friendly legacy media outlets, because “climate change is fueling drought and a decrease in the amount of water that cascades down through the region’s mountains and rivers”.

Right… that does sound terrible, but isn’t it the other way around? I thought the global warming hypothesis called for more moisture in the atmosphere; more clouds; more precipitation…? It’s probably me — my Doublethink likely needs work.

Embarrassingly for the AGW Party, just last year Brigham Young University ecologist Ben Abbott authored a study claiming that the lake would completely dry up within the next five years, and expose hazardous dust from the lake bed.

Reputation on the line, Abbott is doubling down on his ‘doomsday prediction’, warning that this year’s record deluge shouldn’t calm the sense of urgency for Utah to take action that could guarantee the lake’s survival.

“Back on a crashing plane is not where we want to be,” he said. “We should be viewing this big winter as a lease on life and an opportunity to get our long-term conservation measures in place.”

An AGW Party-funded ecologist is one thing, but the MSM also called on the views of a Mr Derby, a local medical device manufacturer. During the interview, Mr Derby called last year’s low levels “an unbelievable catastrophe”, but after this year’s swing back to wet, “it’s just like a moderate disaster”.

Brilliant.

Even today, Utah’s tallest peaks remain covered in feet of snow.

The Main Chute at Alta’s iconic trail, for example, is still skiing well:

The Main Chute is a spring staple for backcountry skiers, but such coverage this late in the year is “completely unprecedented,” reports powder.com.

Alta Ski Area posted a historic 903 inches (75.25 feet) of snow last season, and was one of at least 19 U.S. resorts to break their all-time snowfall records.

YOSEMITE’S TIOGA ROAD STILL CLOSED DUE TO SNOW

The opening of the Tioga Road, the route across Yosemite’s high country, has been significantly delayed this year.

With today being July 10, this year has now surpassed the road’s most-delayed opening ever — the July 9 of 1938 .

Winter’s historic snowfall is to blame, which not only buried the road in snow and ice but caused serious damage to parts of the 46-mile route and adjacent facilities.

Last fall, officials shut down the road on Halloween in anticipation of the season’s first major snowfall. The closure came earlier than it has in most recent years, according to Park records, but it was justified as winter indeed hit early, as feared, delivering storm after storm that were not only unusual but history-making, dropping record amounts of snow nearly the entire length of the Sierra.

When the storms finally abated this spring, the country along the Tioga Road had received 240+% of its average snowfall, leaving the route buried under a deeper layer of snow –and in some places ice, rocks and trees– than any living person has ever witnessed, reports kqed.org/news.

“Everyone’s been talking about what a crazy epic winter we’ve had and just the monumental task of getting that road open,” said Steve Lyon, a Yosemite National Park ranger — work that has involved months of plowing with tracked vehicles, bulldozers, rotary plows and other heavy equipment.

Roadside restrooms, staff housing and other facilities also took a pounding during the winter, continued Lyon: “There’s a fair number of buildings up there. Almost all of them have taken some damage, and some of them are just completely destroyed.”

Even now, well into the month of July, park rangers are still unable to give an opening date the Tioga Road.
