Storm “Frank” and New Year’s Eve 1939
Climate alarmists have run wild with predictions about the “monster” “Godzilla” El Niño active in the Pacific for several months. A corresponding situation existed in late 1939. But while it is expected that today ending December is the hottest on record, December 1939 was the beginning of an extreme cold winter in Europe. The winter was special because it was the coldest since the end of the Little Ice Age around 1850, turning a global warming trend into a three decades lasting period of cooling, which happened after four months war, in World War II. Why caring about winter 1939/40? Why took “General Frost” reign as early as mid-December 1939? Why understanding too much of climate change and man’s impact in this matter?

What a great opportunity to talk about climate change on New Year’s Eve while North Pole temperatures spike ‘above freezing’ as Storm Frank sends warm air north that causes rare winter ‘heatwave’ in Arctic with temperatures rising about 30C above normal (The Telegraph), as well as widespread disruption, with a band of rain sweeping across the United Kingdom from the west through the course of the day (The Telegraph).
