Striking At The Root

Northern Hemisphere winter 2019 Cold Headlines breaking records

October 2018 -March 8th 2019

Northern Hemisphere Winter Headlines.


Below is a compilation of winter headlines, there are many more, yet for the purposes of this post i have only included these. I have also left out of the mix the unusual warming recorded in the month of February 2019 experienced in the UK. Why?

The unusual warmth in small regions of the Northern hemisphere pale in comparison to the cold events occuring. To describe and promote isolated warming events as human induced climate change from global warming is simply ignoring the overwhelming & abundant evidence of a greater in magnitude cooling event over a warming one.
