There’s a Mini Ice Age Coming, Says Man Who Beats Weather Experts!

Icy outlook: Gibsons cave in Bowlees, Teesdale as the severe winter weather continues to grip the UK. Source: Daily Mail UK.

  • Global warming or global cooling? Current freezing weather around the world indicates global cooling. The man-made global warming hoaxsters know their time is up. They are already shifting to a new marketing slogan: Climate Change! The real intent is to enslave all mankind by imposing a unneccesary carbon tax to build their world government. If successful, it is the template, precedent and mechanism for more taxes on all humanity.
     
  • It is all a Big Lie! The purpose is not to help humanity but to kill off a certain percentage of mankind, depopulate the earth and build their control grid police state! Remember, Satanism always masquerades itself in light !
     
    There’s a mini ice age coming, says man who beats weather experts
    Piers Corbyn not only predicted the current weather, but he believes things are going to get much worse, says Boris Johnson, London’s mayor.
      ….
    Do you remember? They said it would be mild and damp, and between one degree and one and a half degrees warmer than average. Well, I am now 46 and that means I have seen more winters than most people on this planet, and I can tell you that this one is a corker. Never mind the record low attained in Northern Ireland this weekend. I can’t remember a time when so much snow has lain so thickly on the ground, and we haven’t even reached Christmas. And this is the third tough winter in a row. Is it really true that no one saw this coming?
     
    Actually, they did. Allow me to introduce readers to Piers Corbyn, meteorologist and brother of my old chum, bearded leftie MP Jeremy. Piers Corbyn works in an undistinguished office in Borough High Street. He has no telescope or supercomputer. Armed only with a laptop, huge quantities of publicly available data and a first-class degree in astrophysics, he gets it right again and again.
     
    Back in November, when the Met Office was still doing its “mild winter” schtick, Corbyn said it would be the coldest for 100 years. Indeed, it was back in May that he first predicted a snowy December, and he put his own money on a white Christmas about a month before the Met Office made any such forecast. He said that the Met Office would be wrong about last year’s mythical “barbecue summer”, and he was vindicated. He was closer to the truth about last winter, too.
     
    He seems to get it right about 85 per cent of the time and serious business people – notably in farming – are starting to invest in his forecasts. In the eyes of many punters, he puts the taxpayer-funded Met Office to shame. How on earth does he do it? He studies the Sun. He looks at the flow of particles from the Sun, and how they interact with the upper atmosphere, especially air currents such as the jet stream, and he looks at how the Moon and other factors influence those streaming particles.
     
    He takes a snapshot of what the Sun is doing at any given moment, and then he looks back at the record to see when it last did something similar. Then he checks what the weather was like on Earth at the time – and he makes a prophecy.
     
    I have not a clue whether his methods are sound or not. But when so many of his forecasts seem to come true, and when he seems to be so consistently ahead of the Met Office, I feel I want to know more. Piers Corbyn believes that the last three winters could be the harbinger of a mini ice age that could be upon us by 2035, and that it could start to be colder than at any time in the last 200 years. He goes on to speculate that a genuine ice age might then settle in, since an ice age is now cyclically overdue.
     
    Is he barmy? Of course he may be just a fluke-artist. It may be just luck that he has apparently predicted recent weather patterns more accurately than government-sponsored scientists. Nothing he says, to my mind, disproves the view of the overwhelming majority of scientists, that our species is putting so much extra CO? into the atmosphere that we must expect global warming.
     
    The question is whether anthropogenic global warming is the exclusive or dominant fact that determines our climate, or whether Corbyn is also right to insist on the role of the Sun. Is it possible that everything we do is dwarfed by the moods of the star that gives life to the world? The Sun is incomparably vaster and more powerful than any work of man. We are forged from a few clods of solar dust. The Sun powers every plant and form of life, and one day the Sun will turn into a red giant and engulf us all. Then it will burn out. Then it will get very nippy indeed.

Treasuries’ Worst Drop in 2010 Driven by Central Bank Sales!

So much for QE2.0. Since the announcement in November, prices have collapsed !

  • Looks like the main holders of US treasuries, foreign central banks, are bailing out! It appears that the FedRes went into the long end of the treasuries market (10yr), last Friday, and bought quite alot to bring interest rates down. Helicopter Ben is definitely shitting in his pants looking at the waterfall collapse of the 10 yr treasury market. How long this counter trend rally can last is anybody’s guess. More selling by foreigners are coming. Ben Shalom Bernanke will have to create trillions of dollars out of thin air to purchase all these treasuries. Do you still think the USD will not collapse?
     
    Treasuries’ Worst Drop in 2010 Driven by Central Bank Sales
    Central banks outside the U.S. sold Treasuries at the end of November and in December for the first time since June, spurring the biggest monthly loss in a year for the government securities.
     
    The CHART OF THE DAY graphs Treasuries held at the Federal Reserve by foreign central banks and governments. It also shows U.S. 10-year yields climbing in December to a seven-month high. So-called custody holdings rose to a record $2.611 trillion on Nov. 17, according to the U.S. central bank. The figure dropped $2.25 billion in the last week of November, and foreign official holders have sold $1.5 billion of Treasuries in December.
     
    “Foreign central banks have dramatically slowed their buying of Treasuries,” JPMorgan Chase & Co. analysts led by Srini Ramaswamy in New York wrote in a report Dec. 17. “This sharp decline in foreign demand likely contributed to the selloff in Treasuries,” according to JPMorgan, one of the 18 primary dealers required to bid at the government debt sales.
     
    Treasuries handed investors a 2.0 percent loss this month, according to Bank of America Merrill Lynch indexes. The last time U.S. government debt fell more was in December 2009, when it dropped 2.6 percent. Investors outside the U.S. hold about half of the nation’s
    marketable debt, which has grown by more than 50 percent since the start of 2009 to $8.75 trillion.
     
    “This is quite scary,” said Tomohisa Fujiki, an interest- rate strategist at BNP Paribas Securities Japan Ltd. in Tokyo. “It was one of the big factors during that massive selloff.” BNP’s U.S. unit is another primary dealer.
