Russia is enduring its harshest winter in over 70 years, with temperatures plunging as low as -50 degrees Celsius. Dozens of people have already died, and almost 150 have been hospitalized. The country has not witnessed such a long cold spell since 1938, meteorologists said, with temperatures 10 to 15 degrees lower than the seasonal norm all over Russia. Across the country, 45 people have died due to the cold, and 266 have been taken to hospitals. In total, 542 people were injured due to the freezing temperatures,

There´s been a stationary and very strong (nearly 1060 hectopascals) high pressure system over the north of Russia this past week. When this type of system prevails, it direct winds clockwise down from the Arctic over Siberia and then westwards towards western Russia and eastern Europe in general.

When winds travel over land masses in winter, they become colder, not warmer, as land is cold - in fact, colder than water -during this season. In summer, the reverse occurs - ie land is warmer than water. Therefore, the same pressure system that is now bringing very cold weather to Russia would bring very hot weather if it occurred in summer.

The emails from the corrupt CRU controlled by Phil Jones and corrupt Penn State´s Michael Mann were first posted on a Russian server in the Russian Far East.
One way they fudged the numbers for Gore´s fraudulent global warming was by not including many areas in Russia.
Soviet science was corrupted by Lysenko and they paid for it dearly with his bogus beliefs- some with their lives.
Prayers for the Russian people.

Coldest temp I´ve ever experienced was -20F with a -50F wind chill in Omaha, NE. Toasty warm in my Air Force issue cold weather parka.

Coldest I´ve ever been was water survival in Pensacola, FL on a sunny 60 degree day in December. I could NOT get warm after climbing out of P´cola Bay. Survival instructor didn´t even have any ´spirits´ to warm me. Can you believe that? ;-)

Yep, global warming is here.
Oops, I meant climate change is here.
Oh, global cooling is here.

Cold and snowy in Colorado today.
But last summer was hotter than normal, dry and windy.

So which is it? Warming or cooling.
It´s neither.
It´s typical weather variation.

Man has been recording weather records for about 150 years. Are we to draw conclusions for such a short period. The Earth has had weather for 5 billion years.

Baudette, Minnesota...on the north western part of the state gets pretty cold in the winter. I was stationed up there at a Radar site (692nd)in 1964 and we had 60 degrees BELOW ZERO for weeks at a time. Getting frostbite is a court martial offense just like a bad sunburn in the summer. Wear your parka, parka pants, bunny boots and gloves...only saw one case of frostbite and that was a case of foolishness. Everyone survived very nicely, went ice fishing, hunting, played hockey, curling, cross country skiing, etc...it was NOT the end of the world. It made us laugh that the weather guys never reported our temperatures, instead they went to warmer places like International Falls (far warmer) and maybe Duluth...weenies!

It is the IPCC´s fault nobody is ready for cold. Outside their bubble, many people are saying that the quiet Sun could mean a climate cold snap. Which is, like, duh, but they are managing to obscure this obvious connection. It is their fault these people died. And those homeless people in Poland (last year?)

Most of us will not experience such harsh winters, but with rising costs many will suffer because they cannot afford to pay for oil or higher electric bills.

Not true. Maybe taxpayers would suffer trying to come up with enough money to pay the fuel bill. They´d get a double whammy because their tax rates or fees would go up again to cover the cost of increased HEAP aid for the grifters.

CAIRO - A militant Islamist group has warned tourists to leave Egypt and threatened to attack any who stay after February 20, raising the prospect of a new front in a fast-growing insurgency in the biggest Arab nation. The Sinai-based Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis group, which claimed responsibility for a suicide bombing that killed two South Korean tourists and an Egyptian on Sunday, made the statement on an affiliated Twitter account. "We recommend tourists to get out safely before the expiry of the deadline," read the tweet, written in English

TOKYO/WARSAW - China, the EU and environmentalists criticized Japan at U.N. climate talks on Friday for slashing its greenhouse gas emissions target after its nuclear power industry was shuttered by the Fukushima disaster. The Japanese government on Friday decided to target a 3.8 percent emissions cut by 2020 versus 2005 levels. That amounts to a 3 percent rise from a U.N. benchmark year of 1990 and the reversal of the previous target of a 25 percent reduction. "Given that none of the nuclear reactors is operating, this was unavoidable," Environment Minister Nobuteru Ishihara said.

Although CO2 is considered a "greenhouse gas" that contributes to climate change, if the Energy Department (DOE) finds partners to capitalize on the research of one of its laboratories, someday cars might run on sunshine. Technically, cars would run on the product of sunlight, CO2, and water using a "two-step solar thermochemical cycle" developed by the Albuquerque, New Mexico government lab. The DOE posted the special notice seeking interested companies on the Federal Business Opportunities website on Tuesday: Sandia National Laboratories (Sandia) is conducting ongoing research and development into solar fuels, the conversion of sunlight, CO2, and H2O into high

Ford Motor Co. says it has developed a car that can sniff out open parking spaces ahead — and then park itself in that space, even without a driver behind the wheel. (snip) Ultrasonic sensors can detect an open parallel, diagonal or perpendicular parking space ahead while a vehicle is traveling up to 18 miles per hour, with enough lead time that the driver doesn’t overshoot the space. The driver can then brake, shift to neutral, and press and hold the Fully Assisted Parking Aid button in the car. At that point, parking-aid software will maneuver the vehicle into the parking

Self-styled revolutionary "Carlos the Jackal" has lost an appeal against his life sentence for deadly attacks in France in the 1980s. The Venezuelan, whose real name is Ilich Ramirez Sanchez, has always denied playing any role in the bomb attacks that killed 11 people. But a court in Paris upheld his jail term on Wednesday. The 63-year-old, who is also serving a life sentence for a triple murder in 1975, was captured in Sudan in 1994. By that time he had earned global notoriety as a Marxist militant who masterminded deadly bomb attacks, assassinations and hostage-takings.

Rioters have lit fires and stoned emergency services in the suburbs of Stockholm for the third night in a row after a man was shot dead by police. Incidents were reported in at least nine suburbs of the Swedish capital and police made eight arrests. On Sunday night, more than 100 cars were set alight, Swedish media report. Police in the deprived, largely immigrant suburb of Husby shot a man dead last week after he reportedly threatened to kill them with a machete. The founder of a local youth group told Swedish media the riots were a reaction to "police brutality".

Last week, flyers began circulating in the town of Rafah on the Gaza Strip border demanding that its tiny Coptic population move out, residents said. Officials at the local church informed the authorities of the threats, but no action was taken, they added. Days later, a shop belonging to one of the families was fired on with automatic rifles, witnesses said.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – President Obama compared the Republican budget plan to a "stinkburger" or "meanwich" during a speech here Wednesday, using a series of zingers in an attempt to strike a contrast with the GOP on economic issues in an election year. In a speech to an enthusiastic crowd of 1,400 at the University of Michigan, Obama repeatedly mocked Republican ideas about how to improve the economy, as he touted his own proposal to raise the minimum wage.

As part of Morell´s testimony on Wednesday, the former acting and deputy CIA director acknowledged that he overruled the guidance of the top CIA officer in Libya at the time.

Do you think members of Congress are overpaid or underpaid? Most likely you’d go with the former, but Democratic congressman Jim Moran argues it’s actually the latter. In an interview with CQ Roll Call, Moran says, “I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid.” The House recently took up a bill to freeze members’ paychecks, placing another halt on the annual cost-of-living pay increases they would normally get and keeping annual salary at $174,000. Moran believes that this is the wrong way to go, not necessarily talking about himself in particular, but saying there

The human kindling that makes up the flammable Republican base may soon burst into flames, again. Portions of that excitable cohort are looking — some with fawn-like eyes filled with hurt, others with sparks shooting from eyes narrowed like gun slits — askance at other Republicans urging Jeb Bush to seek the 2016 presidential nomination. A candidacy by Florida’s former governor would be desirable. But if Republicans want to avoid intra-party carnage, they should be very careful about doing what The Post recently reported: “Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft

Sarah Palin continues to act in ways that confirm some of the more negative things said about her. For example, she’s taken to Facebook to attack the most recent budget plan by House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan.(Snip)Whatever differences Ms. Palin may have with the Ryan plan–and perhaps she’ll take the time to offer an actual critique of if rather than a Facebook entry with lots of upper case words–it’s hardly a joke. But what might elicit a roll of the eyes is comparing Ms. Palin’s views now versus what they were nearly four years ago. Consider this: On December
