No reason to discount the idea
that we’re heading into another Little Ice Age,
or possibly a major ice age
By Rich Apuzzo, Chief Meteorologist, Skyeye Weather LLC

Out in space the sun remains on a record pace at 51 days without sunspots, and no expectations of any change soon.  We’ll be in thetop 3 longest quiet periods by Wednesday evening (tied with 54 days from 1879) and by late next week we’ll head into the 2nd position as we surpass 63 days from 1901.  The daily solar observations began in 1849, but we know from other observations between 1400 and 1830 that these periods of sunspot minimums were associated with a 400-year stretch known as the Little Ice Age. 

The only problem with observations from that time is that there were no telescopes and satellites with the observational power we have today.  In other words, the long periods without sunspots are even more impressive now because we can pick out the smallest sunspot, ones that would have been missed 100 to 200 years ago.  We won’t know if this is true for a long time, but at this point there is no reason to discount the idea that we’re heading into another Little Ice Age, or possible a major ice age.  Time will tell…

I was just laughing and wondering if this administration will figure it out that the sun has everything to do with heating and cooling. NAH! - They aren't bright enough. Should we tell them that we also get light from the sun?

1.) 30 To 40 Degrees Below Normal - “An unseasonably cold air mass is preparing to invade the northern Plains and Rockies today,” says accuweather.com. “Temperatures will fall through the 20s by the afternoon across much of Montana and Wyoming, as well as the western Dakotas.”  Montana and Wyoming can expect to set “numerous” record lows.

The cold then will push southward into Colorado and Nebraska. The high in Denver on Saturday is expected to be in the mid- 30s, more than 30 degrees below the normal high of 69.

Billings, Montana can expect a high of 22 on Saturday, 40 degrees below normal.

2.) Record Cold Heading for Omaha - Much colder temperatures are on their way for this weekend, along with the possibility of snow tonight!

The most likely area to see snow looks to be across northeast Nebraska. Overnight temperatures are expected to dip into the mid to upper 20s over most areas Saturday night. Saturday and Sunday's highs will only be in the upper 30s to lower 40s.  Record cold maximum temperatures are possible on both days across the area.  Right now, the records are:

               Saturday 10/10    Sunday 10/11

Omaha    41 (1987)              45 (1946)

Lincoln    41 (1987)              47 (1946)

Norfolk    42 (1932)              41 (1909)

3.) Winter So Soon! Single digits possible - Temperatures will remain well below the freezing mark throughout the day in the western Dakotas, Montana and northern Wyoming, which is almost unheard of this early in the season. The northern Plains and Upper Midwest are also readying for the harsh chill.

Overnight lows will drop to the lower teens in places like Billings, Great Falls and Helena, with single digits in the coldest locations.

In addition, 1 to 3 inches of snow is expected from southwestern Alberta to western Nebraska, with up to 6 inches in some areas. Ski resorts of southwestern Montana and northwest Wyoming will get even more.

4.) Record breaking cold and wind chills possible over weekend - A VERY COLD WEATHER SYSTEM WILL MOVE ACROSS WESTERN MONTANA AND NORTH CENTRAL IDAHO THURSDAY EVENING. … SNOW ACCUMULATIONS OF 3 TO 6 INCHES POSSIBLE BY FRIDAY MORNING. FOLLOWED BY STRONG GUSTY NORTHEAST WINDS USHERING A VERY COLD AIR MASS ACROSS THE CONTINENTAL DIVIDE...

RECORD BREAKING COLD AND LOW WIND CHILLS POSSIBLE OVER THE WEEKEND ...STRONG GUSTY NORTHEAST WINDS 15 TO 25 WITH GUSTS TO 35 MPH … LOCAL WIND CHILLS  APPROACHING 10 DEGREES BELOW ZERO.

5.) Hard freeze warning North Dakota – End of the growing season
COLD AIR WILL BRING ANOTHER ROUND OF FREEZING TEMPS TO WESTERN AND CENTRAL NORTH DAKOTA THURSDAY NIGHT. A HARD FREEZE IS POSSIBLE...LOWS IN THE UPPER TEENS TO MID 20S. ANOTHER COLD FRONT ON FRIDAY WILL BRING MORE COLD AIR... LOW TEMPS  EXPECTED TO RANGE FROM THE LOW TO MID TEENS IN THE WEST TO AROUND 20 IN CENTRAL NORTH DAKOTA. THE UNSEASONABLY COLD WEATHER IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE THROUGH THE WEEKEND.

A HARD FREEZE WILL MEAN THE END OF THE GROWING SEASON FOR
SENSITIVE VEGETATION.

6.) Colorado ski resort boasts earliest opening day in 64 years - Arapahoe Basin announced it would open Friday, the earliest opening in its 64-year history.

Meanwhile, Loveland opened for skiing today, its earliest opening in 40 years and the first ski area in North America to open this season.

7.) Vegas ski resort to open a record seven weeks early - The 2009-2010 season at the Las Vegas Ski & Snowboard Resort is underway, the earliest the resort has ever opened.

We're in the 40s in SW Oklahoma, and it is unusually early for temperatures this low. It's that GLOBAL WARMING at work again. If Al Gore would just ask some folks with common sense, they would tell him that the SUN definitely has an effect on HOT and COLD. Who would have thought that the SUN might have something to do with temperature? - JUST FOLKS WITH COMMON SENSE!

To Cut Global Warming, Swedes Study Their Plates
By ELISABETH ROSENTHAL
October 23, 2009

STOCKHOLM — Shopping for oatmeal, Helena Bergstrom, 37, admitted that she was flummoxed by the label on the blue box reading, “Climate declared: .87 kg CO2 per kg of product.”

“Right now, I don’t know what this means,” said Ms. Bergstrom, a pharmaceutical company employee.

But if a new experiment here succeeds, she and millions of other Swedes will soon find out. New labels listing the carbon dioxide emissions associated with the production of foods, from whole wheat pasta to fast food burgers, are appearing on some grocery items and restaurant menus around the country.

People who live to eat might dismiss this as silly. But changing one’s diet can be as effective in reducing emissions of climate-changing gases as changing the car one drives or doing away with the clothes dryer, scientific experts say.

“We’re the first to do it, and it’s a new way of thinking for us,” said Ulf Bohman, head of the Nutrition Department at the Swedish National Food Administration, which was given the task last year of creating new food guidelines giving equal weight to climate and health. “We’re used to thinking about safety and nutrition as one thing and environmental as another.”

Some of the proposed new dietary guidelines, released over the summer, may seem startling to the uninitiated. They recommend that Swedes favor carrots over cucumbers and tomatoes, for example. (Unlike carrots, the latter two must be grown in heated greenhouses here, consuming energy.)

They are not counseled to eat more fish, despite the health benefits, because Europe’s stocks are depleted.

And somewhat less surprisingly, they are advised to substitute beans or chicken for red meat, in view of the heavy greenhouse gas emissions associated with raising cattle.

“For consumers, it’s hard,” Mr. Bohman acknowledged. “You are getting environmental advice that you have to coordinate with, ‘How can I eat healthier?’ ”

Many Swedish diners say it is just too much to ask. “I wish I could say that the information has made me change what I eat, but it hasn’t,” said Richard Lalander, 27, who was eating a Max hamburger (1.7 kilograms of carbon dioxide emissions) in the shadow of a menu board revealing that a chicken sandwich (0.4 kilograms) would have been better for the planet.

Yet if the new food guidelines were religiously heeded, some experts say, Sweden could cut its emissions from food production by 20 to 50 percent. An estimated 25 percent of the emissions produced by people in industrialized nations can be traced to the food they eat, according to recent research here. And foods vary enormously in the emissions released in their production.

While today’s American or European shoppers may be well versed in checking for nutrients, calories or fat content, they often have little idea of whether eating tomatoes, chicken or rice is good or bad for the climate.

Complicating matters, the emissions impact of, say, a carrot, can vary by a factor of 10, depending how and where it is grown.

Earlier studies of food emissions focused on the high environmental costs of transporting food and raising cattle. But more nuanced research shows that the emissions depend on many factors, including the type of soil used to grow the food and whether a dairy farmer uses local rapeseed or imported soy for cattle feed.

Business groups, farming cooperatives and organic labeling programs as well as the government have gamely come up with coordinated ways to identify food choices.

Max, Sweden’s largest homegrown chain of burger restaurants, now puts emissions calculations next to each item on its menu boards. Lantmannen, Sweden’s largest farming group, has begun placing precise labels on some categories of foods in grocery stores, including chicken, oatmeal, barley and pasta.

Consumers who pay attention may learn that emissions generated by growing the nation’s most popular grain, rice, are two to three times those of little-used barley, for example.

Some producers argue that the new programs are overly complex and threaten profits. The dietary recommendations, which are being circulated for comment not just in Sweden but across the European Union, have been attacked by the Continent’s meat industry, Norwegian salmon farmers and Malaysian palm oil growers, to name a few.

“This is trial and error; we’re still trying to see what works,” Mr. Bohman said.

Next year, KRAV, Scandinavia’s main organic certification program, will start requiring farmers to convert to low-emissions techniques if they want to display its coveted seal on products, meaning that most greenhouse tomatoes can no longer be called organic.

Those standards have stirred some protests. “There are farmers who are happy and farmers who say they are being ruined,” said Johan Cejie, manager of climate issues for KRAV.

For example, he said, farmers with high concentrations of peat soil on their property may no longer be able to grow carrots, since plowing peat releases huge amounts of carbon dioxide; to get the organic label, they may have to switch to feed crops that require no plowing.

Next year KRAV will require hothouses to use biofuels for heating. Dairy farms will have to obtain at least 70 percent of the food for their herds locally; many previously imported cheap soy from Brazil, generating transport emissions and damaging the rain forest as trees were cleared to make way for farmland.

The Swedish effort grew out of a 2005 study by Sweden’s national environmental agency on how personal consumption generates emissions. Researchers found that 25 percent of national per capita emissions — two metric tons per year — was attributable to eating.

The government realized that encouraging a diet that tilted more toward chicken or vegetables and educating farmers on lowering emissions generally could have an enormous impact.

Sweden has been a world leader in finding new ways to reduce emissions. It has vowed to eliminate the use of fossil fuel for electricity by 2020 and cars that run on gasoline by 2030.

To arrive at numbers for their company’s first carbon dioxide labels, scientists at Lantmannen analyzed life cycles of 20 products. These take into account emissions generated by fertilizer, fuel for harvesting machinery, packaging and transport.

They decided to examine one representative product in each category — say, pasta — rather than performing analyses for fusilli versus penne, or one brand versus another. “Every climate declaration is hugely time-intensive,” said Claes Johansson, Lantmannen’s director of sustainability.

A new generation of Swedish business leaders is stepping up to the climate challenge. Richard Bergfors, president of Max, his family’s burger chain, voluntarily hired a consultant to calculate its carbon footprint; 75 percent was created by its meat.

“We decided to be honest and put it all out there and say we’ll do everything we can to reduce,” said Mr. Bergfors, 40. In addition to putting emissions data on the menu, Max eliminated boxes from its children’s meals, installed low-energy LED lights and pays for wind-generated electricity.

Since the emissions counts started appearing on the menu, sales of climate-friendly items have risen 20 percent. Still, plenty of people head to a burger restaurant lusting only for a burger.

Kristian Eriksson, 26, an information technology specialist, looked embarrassed when asked about the burger he was eating at an outdoor table.

“You feel guilty picking red meat,” he said.

As if we don't have enough problems with the food supply, now we have to put up with this FARCE AGAIN!! Not feeling guilty enough for eating sugar? Well, now you can feel doubly guilty!!

1 Timothy 4:1-5 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; 2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; 3 Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth. 4 For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving: 5 For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer.

I don't have a problem with eating local produce, in fact, I look out for local produce at farmer's markets. What I do have a problem with is the idea that one should feel guilt for their food choices.

If I want to order a steak.......... I'll order a steak, with no ill feelings!!

Maybe the earth worshipers should feel guilty about eating anything? After all the majority of what eat either produces more CO2, requires CO2 production to process it or if harvested takes away from that which takes CO2 from the environment.

One meaningful word has already been used:  FARCE! This is all beyond ridiculous! If global warming is true, some people are more responsible than cows:  Al Gore.

NEWS FLASH:  1 - CO2 is a requirement for life!  2 - Solar cycles of the SUN cause heating and cooling.  3 - At present, we are in a dramatic COOLING CYCLE - NOT HEATING CYCLE!  4 - Man has NO CONTROL or EFFECT in SOLAR cycles of the SUN!  5 - GOD is probably laughing at the vanity of man!

Hot springs found in Norwegian Sea

The world's northernmost underwater hot springs that sustains coral has been found in the chilly waters of the Arctic by Norwegian researchers.

Using a mini-submarine, researchers at the University of Bergen found the underwater hot springs this summer at a depth of 660 yards on the so-called Mohnsryggen north of the Arctic island of Jan Mayen, where Norway maintains a weather station and military presence, reported Aftenposten Thursday.

The researchers were stunned when the mini-sub glided into an underwater forest featuring pinnacles from which streamed water nearly 500 degrees F and saw sea life including shrimp, sea spiders, coral and eel.

"It was like looking into a fantasy world," said Rolf B. Pedersen, who led the international expedition. "Life that can adapt to extreme conditions can have extreme characteristics."

Hmmmmm

Job 38:16 Hast thou entered into the springs of the sea? or hast thou walked in the search of the depth?

Jonah 2:5-6 The waters compassed me about, even to the soul: the depth closed me round about, the weeds were wrapped about my head. 6 I went down to the bottoms of the mountains; the earth with her bars was about me for ever: yet hast thou brought up my life from corruption, O LORD my God.

God talks, and man still doesn't listen to God. The proof has been in the Bible for 2,000 years. Even man discovers something new, God has talked about it in the Bible.
