For much of the world, 2012 is going out the way it came in, with a deadly cold wave, leaving hundreds dead in its wake. Here are but a few of the chilling headlines from across the globe:

But most of the so-called mainstream media (MSM) are stuck in their global warming groove and are determined to stay there, obstinately ignoring the scientific evidence that shows their alarmist predictions to be spectacularly wrong. They also have downplayed, totally ignored, or attempted to explain away the fact that for several winters in a row much of the world has been struck with deadly cold waves.

    With things like Silent Spring (1962) and Earth Day (1970) came the modern environmental movement. The population, especially children, were bullied and indoctrinated with guilt. Meanwhile a political correctness mentality was developed that discourages thought based on facts, except those vetted by the enviro-elite. All major public realms (academic, media, government) are recipients of the folks that fervently believe (note the religious connection) they (but mostly others) are guilty of bad thoughts and actions and must try to save Earth.

    I have been an instructor of entry level college students. There is much they should have learned in 12 years of schooling, but have not. There is much they have learned that they should not have, but once learned, cannot be unlearned. Al Gore was not the first of the bullies but he is the best known. As a senator and vice president, and then as a well funded public figure, he assured the employment of many believers in CAGW. There is not much that can be done about this.

    Note how the “warming” theme has gotten morphed into the “extreme” weather theme. Had Earth entered a “calm and balmy” period that would have become the theme. Believers do not need to be consistent. Wild (extreme) weather is not new. Reporting of such is done when it fits the theme and adds to the guilt.

    One good thing about nearly all governments going broke is that the movement toward life as nasty, brutish, and short is stalling against immediate realities.

    I watched two programs on channel 4 this week, they were on back to back, the first program was about “The Big Freeze in Britain” It was more of a human interest story than a scientific based documentary, The human interest side was very good, but the science surrounding the big freeze was incredibly weak and put forward the met office point of view that these cold snaps are not cyclical, have no pattern and completely random and therefor can not be predicted, there was also a well known (apparently) tv weather presenter (I forget his name) that would supply soundbites during the program such as ‘despite global warming, we may continue to have the odd snowy winter. Overall it was a light Anthropogenic Global Warming nonsense being dismissive on cold winters, but with no science at all to back their assertions up. It left me with the impression that these people believe that the Climate has never changed at all in the past, and that the climate of the UK has always been colder than what it is now, including 2009-2010, (BTW no mention of the largest lake in the UK freezing over and the10’s of thousands of people that queued for water in freezing temperatures), There is a media blackout on selective meteorological events going on in the UK at the moment, It’s a damn shame!

    There was no mention about all the people who were actually trying to warn the folks in the UK at the time that the Sun’s Solar Cycle hit a slump in activity, and that the winter of 2009-2010 would have temperatures fall and that it would bring in a record winter, there was also no mention of the100 year record winter that Northern Ireland had, and all the records broke throughout the UK and Ireland, the memory hole being created by the media I now believe, is by design and not out of sheer ignorance, as many of us have been witness to these events that simply get hidden from the public, ignored and dismissed.

    I have enjoyed your blog this year, I hope you have a great New Year..

    All the very best and happy New Year to all.

    There were an estimated 25,700 excess winter deaths in England and Wales in 2010/11, virtually unchanged from the previous winter
    As in previous years, there were more excess winter deaths in females than in males in 2010/11
    Between 2009/10 and 2010/11 male excess winter deaths increased to 11,200, but female deaths fell to 14,400
    The majority of deaths occurred among those aged 75 and over; however, deaths in this age group fell between 2009/10 and 2010/11, whereas deaths in persons aged under 75 increased
    The excess winter mortality index was highest in Wales in 2010/11, whereas in the two previous winters it was highest in the South East of England
