Temperatures west of the Rockies are well above normal, and temperatures east of the Rockies are record snow and near record cold. This is identical to the weather of January 1977 – which was blamed on global cooling. The current weather pattern will of course be blamed on global warming.

In 1977 it was blamed on global cooling. This time, it will of course be blamed on global warming.
International Team of Specialists Finds No End in Sight to 30‐Year Cooling Trend in Northern Hemisphere – The New York Times
Only a highly sophisticated, highly trained climate scientist like Dr. Hayhoe and Dr. Mann can make the determination as to whether any given cold spell is warmth related or cold related. Mere mortals like us, without PhD’s next to our names or Nobel Prizes to our credit, are incapable of reading a thermometer, let alone interpreting or adjusting the raw data so it fits what the climate models are telling us. Climate models are created by super duper computers, programmed to do settled science, that can perform trillions of calculations per second. How could they ever be wrong?
“…How could they ever be wrong?”
Garbage In = Garbage Out…
And I am not talking about the computers.
Secret knowledge is needed to understand climate models and know what they bespeak.
Nah-Such guys have a 10* better prediction quote((12*0=0) than climate scientists.(even those in Kansas)
Don’t insult such a group of professional liars and deceivers by comparing them to climate scientists
as they at least do not expect to make all people pay for their yellow brick road but only those fools who come to them.
Symptoms of global cooling and warming are identical because the lies&the liars and their intentions are identical.
I thought you were doing Mannian maths. :-)
Every time Tony posts that material on the cold in the 70s, I have flash backs from the Blizzard of 78 here in Indiana. Back then it was a great adventure for a 22 year old. Now days such an event would just be a pain in the ass!
RAH, Sundance has a video up you might want to see: <a href="https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2017/12/26/special-presidential-envoy-brett-mcgurk-provides-update-on-d-isis-campaign-video/"Special Presidential Envoy Brett McGurk Provides Update on D-ISIS Campaign (Video) it includes a transcript.
I too remember that winter of 1977. I was in Rochester and had to dig out from the ‘Lake Effect’ snow. I was also living in a pre-Revolutionary War, house built in the early 1700s. It had no heat upstairs in the bedrooms. I used an electric blanket with my down sleeping bag over the top and wore a knit cap to bed. Just the electric blanket alone didn’t put a dent in the cold. It was like camping out all winter long except I could turn on the electric blanket to heat the bed for a 1/2 hour before climbing in.
To this day I occasionally have to treat a breakout of lesions just below my left temple. The docs have tried everything to eliminate it for good and nothing has worked. It started after many winters of wearing a wool “watch cap” 24-7 when living out in cold weather while in the Army.
Recently I got rid of my sideburns and started keeping my hair cut shorter and that has helped a lot.
I moved to Ft. Collins, CO in Jan. of ’72. Visited a friend at CSU for Thanksgiving if ’71. Had never been in a dry climate, and Thanksgiving was in the 60s and sunny, so I left FT. Wayne, IN for drier climes. Worked outdoors hauling lumber all over northern CO until ’79. Having the Polar Express, now Vortex, slide Arctic air down the east slope of the Rockies brought a lot of cold. I remember what seemed like weeks of -20°s barely getting to the teens during the day. At least it was a dry cold. Moved to the western slope where even at a much higher elevation it is not as cold as the front range. We had a blizzard in ’78 where I carried my 6 week old son a mile in 3′ of snow to a friend’s jeep who could only get that close to our house, and who took my wife, daughter and son to stay with friends in town while I kept the fire burning at home. RAH, I enjoy your trucking references.
Just had a call from a fellow guarantee driver. He and another guarantee driver got called out at 21:00 Christmas night to haul a Lear load down to Laredo. He called me up when he was driving and they were headed back north to bitch about being called. I just rubbed it in since I had the foresight to take vacation over the 24th and 25th. I pointed out that at least they went the right direction with places like Erie, PA getting pounded by lake effect. But he didn’t want to hear it. Just blowing off steam. I had him laughing before we hung up though.
For years now I’ve been saying we haven’t had a cold snap in years. You know where it gets down to minus ten Fahrenheit and stays there for days. Maybe that’s about to change.
Here is the current “forecast” for my area. It of course changes every hour or so as the weather model they rely on re-actuates. We are currently under a “wind chill advisory”. All temps. F.
Low – -1 (actual right now -2)
Actual temperatures more often than not run 2-3 deg. below the forecast I’ve noticed.
For Us in Mid NC it is supposed to get below freezing and stay there for several days ARRGHHhhhh!
That’s exactly one can expect when climate has NOT changed.
Similar weather patterns,similar anomalies,
the only thing that has really changed was the official fearporn scenario which turned
from catastrophical global cooling into catastrophical global warming
((without any discours among scientists about such an unprecedent changes=ice agers vs warmunists))
by decree from the very same parasitical politicians and scientists
to use it as tool for intimidation and force people into submission to acceppt things they’d never acceppt.
As we live in a world where anything goes and everything is true
as long as it is said on tv((even violent,cruel,war-ideologies can be sold as religion of peace as long as this utter “religion of peace”-BS is repeated again and again on tv with a simple trick:
Emphasize the few peacefull things((warm anomalies)),ignore all the violent&ugly ones((cold anomalies)) and create a scenario of fear&defamation so the people dont dare to criticize.))
Similarities to the 1977 map?
Some facts about the Blizzard that struck January of 1978:
Lowest recorded barometric pressure records set in Indiana and Ohio on January 26th. The lowest of all the stations in the two states was set at Cleveland at 28.28. That’s a reading like one would see for a major hurricane.
January 1978 still holds the record for most snowfall in Indy in one month at 30.6 inches.
The first-ever statewide blizzard warning was issued at 3:45 p.m. on January 25.
The Indiana National Guard used tanks, armored personnel carriers, and heavy equipment to rescue stranded motorists.
For only the third time since 1950, classes were cancelled at Purdue University.
If you wanted to make a phone call, you were out of luck! Indiana Bell halted all phone traffic except emergency calls.
Fierce winds made the wind chill dip down to a frigid -50 below 0.
National Weather Service employees in Indy were trapped in their office for 74 hours–just over three days.
The Blizzard of ’78 marks the last time the Ohio River froze over. In Louisville, the ice was more than a foot thick!
Franklin’s “Daily Journal” was printed on pink paper so readers could find their newspapers in the snow.
RAH, do you have a spare bedroom we can use for the next several days? The coldest day forecast for your area is warmer than the best day forecast for mid-Maine. HIGHS here over next few days = 0-5F. Lows MINUS 10 to MINUS 15F.
The heat pumps are getting and will continue to get thoroughly tested. Guaranteed to heat down to -15F. Spare me the jibes about being a NE liberal who deserves to freeze in the dark:-} I am sensibly sustainable. Cheap too–heat pumps cost half as much to install as an oil burner, and they cost about half as much to operate over the heating season.
You don’t want to come here. Besides is you wanted to get out of the cold you would be heading to southern Florida. But make sure it’s southern Florida because it’s looking like there is a good potential for a “devastating freeze” to hit the citrus belt next week. Orlando, FL will be seeing lows in the mid 20s and Brownsville, TX will be seeing lows in the low 30s during that time. But if your heading down there don’t take I-90 the middle of next week because it’s looking like a major snow storm will be hitting along the east coast.
I’ve lived outside in subzero temps for weeks at a time BTW. Ran all over the Alps, Rockies, Green and White mountains in the dead during some pretty damned cold winters back in the 80’s. And these days I drive a truck going east quite often. A few years ago I went into the eastern part of Boston the day after the record setting blizzard.
Scroll down and watch Joe Bastardi’s daily update video. We in N. Central Indiana will be having colder temps than most of NE will be having in a few days.
You’ll see the dark purple indicating greater than 15 degrees below average is going to be laying right over us in N. Central Indiana very soon.
According to Purdue University the average December Temperatures for Anderson, IN are a high of 38 F and a low of 28 F. Average January temps are a high of 34 F and a low of 19 F. (On average January is our coldest month).
The better models are showing we will be running greater than 15 degrees below average from Dec. 29 through January 3rd.
January 4th through January 8th we will run 11 to 13 degrees below average.
January 9th through the 13th our area will run about 8 degrees below average.
All in all it’s looking like this may this Arctic outbreak in the eastern US will be colder than that of 2000-2001.
Anyone that thinks that the things happening now, which are the exact opposite of what the IPCC said to expect in Chapter 5, is due to “global warming” is an idiot.
Australia is looking better & better:-)
