‘GLOBAL WARMING’ UPDATE : Montreal’s Fête Des Neiges (Winter Snow Festival) Cancelled Due To Extreme Cold!Posted: January 21, 2019
“It’s never too cold for Fete des Neige!”
– Christine Muschi | Montreal Gazette
BEING careful not to confuse ‘weather’ with ‘climate’, even though our warmist friends have no problem finding a direct link between heatwaves and ‘climate change’, every summer, there’s no escaping the irony of cancelling a snow festival due to extreme cold in the era of extreme
global warming climate change alarmism!
THE extreme irony highlighted by a support comment from Christine Muschi of the Montreal Gazette, before the cancellation – “It’s never too cold for Fete des Neige…”!
ORGANISERS disagree with Christine’s optimism and have cancelled the event on Sunday due to extreme cold and snow conditions :
“Although the majority of the Fête’s activities can be held despite difficult winter conditions, blowing snow, freezing cold, wind gusts and dangerous roads are all factors that have influenced our decision,” François Carier, director of marketing, business development and communications at Parc Jean-Drapeau, said in a statement.”
CBC with the story on today’s cancellation :
The annual Fête des neiges at Parc Jean-Drapeau is cancelled today due to the extreme cold and winter storm warning.
This is the first time in 10 years that activities for the winter festival have been cancelled due to weather, according to a statement from François Cartier, director of marketing and communications for the Société du parc Jean-Drapeau.
Cartier said that the decision was made in an effort to maintain the safety of the public as well as employees and volunteers who make the festival possible.
The events, which run until Feb. 10, will restart Saturday Jan. 26.
This is the 36th edition of the Fête des neiges.
Environment Canada issued a winter storm warning for the greater Montreal area and predicted as much as 20 or 25 cm of snowfall though Sunday.
Temperatures are expected to dip as low as -35 C (with windchill) and the weather agency is warning that there is a frostbite risk.
MEANWHILE, Justin Trudeau and environment minister Catherine McKenna campaign for a Carbon Tax to stop ‘Global Warming’ or ‘Climate Change’, or something…
‘NOTHING to see here’ according to the global warming theory-obsessed mainstream media.
KEEP in mind their golden rule:
- COLD = WEATHER
- HOT = CLIMATE

Meteorologists and historians believe that this weekend’s baptism by snow could actually have been the coldest snowstorm experienced by Montrealers in a century, reads a montreal.ctvnews.ca article from Jan 20.
Sunday’s high held below -15C all day and snow accumulation was expected to exceed 25cm.
According to the Twitter account YUL Weather Records, the last time Montreal experienced a similar snowstorm was Jan 16, 1920. On that day, a total of 30.2 cm of snow fell, and the daytime high reached -19.4C.
By 3pm on Sunday it was already Montreal’s 2nd snowiest Jan 20th since records began in 1872:
And it was a similar story in nearby Ottawa:
Environment Canada advised people to postpone “non-essential travel” until conditions improve, which may not be for a couple of days.
“There is another storm that may be heading our way for the middle of the week, so we expect more snow,” warned Michelle Fleury, a meteorologist with Environment Canada.

THE MAINSTREAM’S “EXPLAIN-AWAY”
A recently published NYTimes article desperately tries to explain-away the brutal cold gripping the Northern Hemisphere this winter with a painfully stupid, logic-lacking argument.
According to the article, we can expect further disruptions to the polar vortex due to Global Warming. Yes, that’s right, a complete tune-change, but Global Warming now means more record snow and cold during the winter.
An incredible flip, and one clearly driven by the multitude of cold-weather records tumbling across the continents along with the above-average Snow Mass the Northern Hemisphere has maintained all winter.
The irritating thing is that this slimy bullshit will likely fly with those that can’t be bothered, or simply don’t have the time, to do any digging.
“We’d better just believe what the NYTimes says.
After all, they have such a stellar track record on this topic…
Forty years ago, a NYTimes headline read ‘International Team of Specialists Finds No End in Sight to 30-Year Cooling Trend in Northern Hemisphere’:
The Polar Vortex used to be evidence that a new ice age is setting in. Now apparently it is evidence that the Earth is burning up, writes Steve Goddard on his website realclimatescience.com.
It pains me to link it, but here is the NYTimes article in question, entitled Brace for the Polar Vortex: It May Be Visiting More Often.
I can hear it being cited during many a heated family debate — the AGW alarmists new ace-in-the-hole to explain away the encroaching Grand Solar Minimum.
But the truth is out there:
Arctic Sea Ice continues to trend thicker — link.
Total Snow Mass for the NH is well-above the 30-year average — link.
Global Average Temperatures continue to fall — link.
And it has nothing to do with increasing CO2 heating the planet, it’s all the result of our sun beginning its latest shut down (relatively) which past cycles suggest is due.
WHAT THE SCIENCE SUGGESTS IS ACTUALLY HAPPENING
Research (linked below) shows blocking persistence increases when solar activity is low, causing weather patterns to become locked in place at high and intermediate latitudes for prolonged periods of time.
During a solar minimum, the jet stream’s usual Zonal Flow (a west–east direction) reverts to more of a Meridional Flow (a north-south direction) — this is exaggerated further during a Grand Solar Minimum, like the one we’re likely entering now, and explains why regions become unseasonably hot or cold and others unusually dry or rainy, with the extremes lasting for an extended period of time.
Mikhaël Schwander, et al, 2017 — “The 247-year-long analysis of the 11-year solar cycle impact on late winter European weather patterns suggests a reduction in the occurrence of westerly flow types linked to a reduced mean zonal flow under low solar activity. Based on this observational evidence, we estimate the probability to have cold conditions in winter over Europe to be higher under low solar activity than under high activity.”
We’ve known the mechanisms for decades, as this article from 1975’s Science Mag would indicate, but as they contradict the modern political Global Warming agenda they’re conveniently forgotten:
TEXAS ‘OUT-SNOWING’ PARTS OF ALASKA? — ALL PREDICTED DURING A GRAND SOLAR MINIMUM
Back in the fall of 2018, Texas was reported to be ‘out-snowing’ Fairbanks, Alaska.
The story was twisted by the mainstream media to somehow prove AGW, however the phenomenon is exactly the pattern we’d expect to see during a Grand Solar Minimum.
Looking at NASA’s own Maunder Minimum Temperature Reconstruction Maps, some regions actually warm during periods of global cooling — the Arctic, North Atlantic and Alaska being the main ones (although ‘warm’ to the Arctic, for example, is still well-below freezing — there’s no melt):
Alaska may have had a slow start to winter but the Northern Hemisphere as a whole certainly didn’t.
As linked to earlier, Total Snow Mass for the NH, excluding the mountains, is comfortably sitting well-above the 30 year average:
Our climate is cyclic, never linear — driven mainly by the sun.
History is repeating.
The cold times have returned.
