Germany, Austria blanketed in massive snowfall after ‘climate experts’ predicted no more snow

Meteorologists in Europe are assuming heavy snowfall that will affect all of Germany by the end of the month. These predictions go against the "models" of climate alarmists.

    Polar vortex brings us the Ice Age: down to -25 degrees and permafrost in Germany’s cold triangle – This was the recent headline of the mainstream news magazine Focus announced on its online portal.

    On these frosty winter days, the forecast of an alarmist climate researcher Mojib Latif from the year 2000 comes to mind. Latif, who is still a welcome guest of the mainstream media to this day when it comes to conjuring up the global climate catastrophe, warned at the time: “Winter with heavy frost and a lot of snow like twenty years ago will no longer exist in our latitudes.”

    Because of the greenhouse effect in Central and Northern Europe there will be more westerly winds in the future, rainy and mild winters can be expected, Latif continued. The Hamburg “climate expert” came up with this gloomy prophecy over 20 years ago. The Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research, which was in charge in Germany and advised the federal government, among others, made a similar statement.

    But since the turn of the millennium, there have been various cold winters with heavy snowfalls in Germany and Central Europe, with the year 2021 marking a frosty climax. But some scientists who, with the help of dubious climate models, want to convince us that the average temperatures on earth by the end of the century will be much warmer.

    At least 20 people have died after heavy snowfall continued to batter Europe. Bad weather has closed down schools, disrupted traffic and hampered power supplies in many areas.

    Over the past week, six people died in the Austrian federal states of Salzburg and Vorarlberg, with many still stuck in their homes, roads blocked and many regions left without electricity. In Austria, as well as in Germany and Italy, a second level of avalanche danger has been declared.

    And during this recent cold spell, modern electrical machines and wind turbines were susceptible to failure in freezing temperatures. Only a few days into the double-digit minus range, the highly praised modern electrical technology had quickly reached its limits. The energy turnaround prescribed by the Green establishment in Germany for example, regarding wind, solar power, electromobility and bio-mass, soon demonstrated that it can at best be used as an additional option for generating energy and only under ideal conditions.

    It appears to be more of a symbolic gesture for high-earning eco-hipsters, old leftists and do-gooders, than a genuine energy option.

    The expensive electric buses in Berlin all came to a halt in the cold. Nonetheless, the Senate there is sticking to its plan to convert the entire fleet to this unreliable means of transport by 2030. For better or for worse, pure ideology is prescribed – no matter how useless it is in the harsh reality.

    The propellers for wind turbines also quickly froze in colder conditions – and they were therefore unusable. It is just one of the many ecological and technical challenges that are currently facing green energy. Because of this, old-fashioned fuel-powered helicopters had to take to the air to keep the sensitive high-tech ready for operation by dispensing lots of chemicals and hot water. This toxic mix then seeped into the forest floor.

    Back to reality. A picture that speaks a thousand words: An electrical Tesla car being towed by a diesel truck. Photo: Twitter

    The image of the snowy A2 highway in Germany circulated on social networks and spoke volumes about how a 50-year-old Unimog truck had to tow away a sinfully expensive Tesla whose battery had failed in cold conditions.

    And many European countries no longer have the management staff in order to cope with such catastrophic situations at all. All the Green left-wing state politicians who are trained in sociology, law and gender sciences.

    Conversely, what do regions do where it can be 50 degrees below zero or more in winter – such as in Siberia? There the admittedly far less effeminate residents, those responsible and their administrations rely on ancient coal, or nuclear power plants, briquette heating, self-knitted woollen sweaters and old diesel trucks.

    And somehow they get along very well with this simple, but highly functional low-tech machines, especially under difficult winter conditions. They have the tried and tested old-school equipment and practical and hands-on citizens. There, no one is afraid of a few cold nights.
