Record cold and snow expected in Northern Hemisphere
Meteorologists are warning of an extremely cold and snowy winter. The amount of snow in the northern hemisphere is already hundreds of gigatons larger than normal for the season and the South Pole has measured the coldest winter ever since measurements began there. This is astonishing climate news that the system media has chosen to completely ignore.

There are increasing indications that earthlings are facing a colder climate. The global average temperature has fallen over the past five years and the trend for precipitation in the form of snow is rising. The energy crisis that has hit Europe and large parts of the world hard, risks being seriously exacerbated with an unusually cold winter.
Phobos, one of Russia’s leading meteorological institutes, on October 4, warned that extreme weather with cold and large amounts of snow will hit the northern hemisphere this winter. Meteorologists predict severe weather conditions in Russia, especially in early January. Several places are said to be at risk of being hit very hard and the capital Moscow has been singled out. Significantly larger amounts of snow are expected there than normal and even worse, the Russian meteorologists believe that it will be in Siberia, where their forecast indicates twice as much snow against already large amounts of normal. It bodes ill, as transcontinental Russia last year witnessed its coldest winter and spring ever.
Several of Europe’s ski resorts in the Alps have already reported decimeter-deep snow. Stelvio is one of eight glacier areas in Austria, Italy and Switzerland that have already opened their slopes for the ski season and four others will open the weekend of October 9-10, along with the first two in Finland, Levi and Ruka.
Snow in the Alps and at high altitudes is not in itself strange at this time, but what differs is that the snow line is already below 1000 meters and that the snowfall this year follows a pattern that is recognizable from the beginning of historically very cold winters in Europe. For example, the Balkans already have minus degrees at night and the temperatures there are not less than 16 degrees Celsius below the normal temperature, which is extremely high in these contexts.
There has been a clear trend that foreshadowed the cooler climate that is now beginning to make itself felt in earnest.
Increasingly cold climate over the past five years
Even now, the total snow mass in the northern hemisphere is well above normal. According to data from the Finnish Meteorological Institute, this is a total of almost 200 gigatons above the average for the years 1982-2012 (GlobSnow SWE v1.3), mountain regions not included. Others estimate the snow surplus at 250 gigatons. Earlier this year, during February-March, the total snow mass of 400-500 gigatons was above the same average, which is far above the normal (min-max) range.
No system media in any country mentioned this historical and sensational fact in a single headline. In addition, the global average temperature has fallen since 2016.
Climate alarmists claim that climate change, which more and more independent researchers believe is happening because the sun entered the Grand Solar Minimum (GSM) at the end of 2019, is instead due to man-made carbon dioxide emissions that must be stopped at all costs except in China. China built more than three times more new coal power capacity than all other countries in the world combined, equal to “more than one large coal plant per week,” according to the Centre for Research on Energy and Clean Air in Finland.
Instead of a global cooling, according to the megaphones of the globalists, we are facing an existence-threatening global warming. They believe that carbon dioxide, the oxygen in plants that provide greenery and food for animals and humans, as well as sun and heat are a deadly threat – to the extent that they are prepared to not only reshape our entire world to reduce carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, but even spray chemicals in the atmosphere and launch other projects try to reflect or even block the sun.
Until recently, climate alarmists have repeatedly warned that global temperatures would rise or that the North Pole would be ice-free until a certain year, and have even claimed that snow was a thing of the past. An example is the globalist Al Gore, who in 2008 warned that “the entire ice cover at the North Pole may be completely gone in five years”, that is… 2013. In 2009, he warned again that supercomputers had calculated that “there was a 75 percent chance that the entire The North Pole, during some of the summer months, may be completely ice-free within the next five to seven years ”, or later than 2016.
He added that “only ruthless fools could ignore” his warnings. But because of global cooling, climate alarmists now claim instead that a temperature drop for five years is such a short time that it can not be counted in a longer trend that they believe shows that they are still right. The problem is that in the longer term, they are even more wrong.
More and more snow since 1980
Climate alarmists also methodically avoid all data that goes against their alleged planet-threatening global warming. One such example is global snowfall statistics and satellite imagery reported by NASA, the US space agency, since 1980. An experienced Wall Street data analyst who creates graphs based on raw data analyzed NASA’s own figures and found a clear trend which showed that precipitation in the form of snow has not decreased, but clearly increased during the last four decades (see diagram).
Coldest winter at the South Pole… ever
The mainstream media like to focus on Greenland and the North Pole, as the ice cover there more visibly expands and shrinks with the seasons. It provides plenty of opportunities to report on “shrinking ice”. But if you are genuinely worried that the oceans will rise and drown islands and coastal cities like New York, the focus should actually be on the South Pole.
There is 90 percent of all the earth’s total ice cover and as much as 70 percent of the planet’s freshwater. Establishment media, however, are content to report when giant ice blocks break off the edges of the Antarctic ice and fall into the sea. Although it happens every year and at all times, something that is rarely mentioned, it is presented as ominous and even as evidence of their alleged global warming. The disinformation is often accompanied by dramatic film sequences and explanations of how gigantic the iceberg is. But what is really going on with the temperature and the ice there?
It turns out that the ice cover in Antarctica was the fifth largest ever in August. And much more importantly, in the last six months, April to September, were the coldest ever at the South Pole with an average temperature of -61.1 degrees Celsius. April to September are the winter months in the southern hemisphere, largely dark and at the South Pole several months were completely sunless.
The record was recently confirmed by none other than the climatological journalist Stefano di Battista, who has been watching and publishing research on Antarctic temperatures for many years. Battista also tweeted on October 1 that the average was “-2.2 ° C below the average for the period 1981-2010 and -2.5 ° C for the period 1991-2020”. This spectacular news, which in many ways shatters the myth of global warming, has once again been completely ignored by the system media.
The new record thus beat the previous one at -60.6 degrees Celsius from 1976, during the weak solar cycle 20. Each solar cycle lasts on average just over eleven years and NASA has called the current cycle 25 “the weakest in the last 200 years”, but many scientists and others believe that it is rather the weakest in 400 years or even several thousand years.
The phenomenon is called the Grand Solar Minimum (GSM) and occurs approximately 400 years apart. GSM was officially proclaimed, by NASA among others, to have been launched in December 2019. Each time GSM has fallen into history, it results in a cooler climate with more precipitation, floods, vegetation and finally mass starvation and chaos. Despite this milestone, which was crucial for humanity, the system media around the world remained completely silent. Immediately afterwards, however, came the news of an allegedly deadly new lab-made Coronavirus from Wuhan and the world has since lived entirely in the shadow of Covid.
Cold winter exacerbates energy crisis
If it is an even colder winter this year, it will further aggravate the energy crisis, which has already affected Europe and large parts of the world. In recent weeks, much of Europe has seen a rapidly growing energy crisis, with some parts of the continent already affected by a spot price increase of 250 percent on gas, on which many countries depend, not least in cities. In just over a year, futures prices for European natural gas, for delivery next month, have risen by more than 2000 percent. Natural gas prices have also skyrocketed in Asia and elsewhere. Oil and coal prices are also rising sharply.
The price increases for energy and other goods are said to be due to shortages that have arisen largely due to strange political decisions and disturbances in the global supply chain, which in turn have in many cases been caused by Covid restrictions which are essentially just political decisions.
‘A very cold winter would be catastrophic’
The world’s two most populous countries, China and India, are said to be short of coal. It has taken dramatic forms in China, among other places, which is forced to introduce electricity rationing in almost two thirds of the country’s provinces, which has hit energy-intensive industries hard. One of our sources in China confirmed that many factories in affected areas are given electricity only 3-4 days a week, ie about half, because they had often been running 24/7.
In October, India saw gas prices rise by over 60 percent in one week and in Italy the price went up 30 percent in a single weekend. The UK has already experienced panic purchases of petrol and diesel after the petrol stations there ran out of fuel and were then emptied. This has been unseen in Europe since the 1973 oil crisis.
In Europe, however, there is hope that the opening of Nord Stream 2, the controversial natural gas pipeline between Russia and Germany through the Baltic Sea, will cause gas prices to return to normal. The pipeline can supply Germany and Europe with 55 billion cubic meters of natural gas per year and it began to be filled on 4 October. When it will start delivering gas is unclear, but there are hopes that it can be operational as early as November.
Simon Thorne, British head of the raw materials and energy information company S&P Global Platts, recently went out and commented on the European energy crisis with the words “The Savior is likely to come in a milder winter. That would make a difference. But a very cold winter would be catastrophic for many – even marginally colder would be very difficult.”
These shortages may have been created and in some cases may be purely fictitious in order to “drive the globalists’ agenda forward”. If Russian meteorologists, like many others who warn of the same thing, can predict a cold winter, so can globalist actors. Should these forecasts prove correct, the damage from induced shortages and subsequent price increases will be so much greater, not least for the ordinary citizen.

CLIMATEThe United States' government scientific organization, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), predicts zero sunspots from 2031 to 2040. This is an extreme situation that has not occurred in as long as humanity has been counting sunspots, and it leads us into uncharted territory in terms of our solar system. However, this prediction aligns with the warnings of the world-renowned solar researcher Valentina Zharkova for many years, who indicated in 2019 various signs of this catastrophic phenomenon, including the extreme hailstorms we have seen in Europe and the world this summer. The forecast and various observations this year give cause for very significant concern. In this unique analysis, Free West Media explains why.
EUROPEAN ELECTIONSOn Saturday, August 26, representatives of six European nationalist parties gathered in Budapest. The meeting was initiated by the Hungarian party Mi Hazánk and took place in the national parliament. Representatives of the parties signed a joint declaration that not only reaffirms the parties' friendship but also their unity on a range of complex political issues. A surprisingly clear and radical manifesto was established. The hope is that this cooperation will lead to success in the EU elections and eventually result in the formation of a group in the European Parliament. For Swedish nationalism, this meeting marks a success as Sweden, for the first time, has a party represented in a leading nationalist cooperation in Europe. Free West Media was present at this historic event.
Sweden will have to wait a bit longer for NATO membership, according to Turkey's Justice Minister Jilmaz Tunc. First, Sweden must extradite the "terrorists" Turkey wants and stop the desecration of the Quran.
The Russian attack helicopter Ka-52 is considered one of the world's best and has struck fear in Ukraine, where it has hunted down tanks and other armored vehicles, often beyond the range of many light anti-aircraft systems. However, it has met its match in the Swedish air defense missile system RBS 70, which has quickly led to significant losses for the Russian helicopter forces.
Alternative for Germany (AfD) held a party conference on July 29-30 to select candidates for the upcoming EU election next year. EU Parliament member Maximilian Krah, belonging to the party's more radical, ethnonationalist faction, was appointed as the top candidate. The party's two spokespersons delivered powerful speeches criticizing the EU's failed migration policy and trade sanctions that isolate Europe and Germany from the rest of the world. They argued that it's time for the EU to return a significant portion of its power to national parliaments. However, they have dropped the demand for Germany to exit the EU.
The rising popularity of AfD has raised strong concerns within the establishment. Despite lies and demonization in the media and isolation from the overall political establishment, the party continues to grow. Certain representatives of the party are accused of becoming increasingly "extreme," and in an unusual move, the influential weekly newspaper Der Spiegel demanded that AfD be "banned."

After a criminal complaint in Belgium against the President of the European Commission, the so-called SMS-case, now takes a new turn. The judge responsible for the investigation will likely gain access to the secret messages exchanged between Ursula von der Leyen and Albert Bourla, CEO of Pfizer, at least if they haven't been deleted.
Arktos has distinguished itself by publishing groundbreaking philosophers and social critics. Now, the publisher's international distributor has abruptly terminated the cooperation, and more than 400 already printed titles cannot reach their audience. There is strong evidence that the distributor has been under pressure, something that has also happened in Sweden. We have spoken with Arktos founder Daniel Friberg about the ongoing struggle for freedom of speech in a shrinking cultural corridor.
The Catholic bishops of the Scandinavian countries presented an open five-page letter criticizing transgender ideology on March 21, just before Easter. The document primarily expresses care and advice and was read aloud in Catholic churches in Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark, and Iceland. Cardinal Anders Arborelius, Bishop of Stockholm, is one of the signatories of the document.
