  1. Getting back to that time of year again. Hopefully it's an interesting season. Glad we have this. The loons on boards are unreal. Man made climate change deniers galore. Who just started a thread there now. "Is Climate 'Activism' Becoming a Cult?" "What exactly is the point of these mass and highly co-ordinated 'climate protests' lately, other than to prey on the most vulnerable minds (children) by telling them the world has 10 or 12 years left before it self-destructs? And take this quote from UN GS Antonio Guterries: "Mr. Guterres told the young activists that he feared “there is a serious conflict between people and nature, between people and the planet.” Saying that there is no time to lose, with so many people around the world already suffering from the impacts of climate change, the UN chief has been bluntly telling world leaders “don’t come to the Summit with beautiful speeches … come with concrete plans,” including carbon neutrality plans for 2050, options to tackle fossil fuel subsidies, taxing carbon and a possible end to new coal power sources after next year.". https://news.un.org/en/story/2019/09/1046972 The attempt here to convince 'young activsts' that all of the worlds ills and sufferings are down to climate change is not only factually wrong, but increasingly quite sinister. Not only poisoning the minds of the most innocent of people, but also grossly misleading them by playing down the real politics and policies that do actually result in world misery, but I have to ask, to what end? At least there as still some sane minds left in the world, but I fear that more and more, their voices will be muted: EUROPEAN CLIMATE DECLARATION: THERE IS NO CLIMATE EMERGENCY Date: 24/09/19Press Release, Climate Intelligence Foundation (CLINTEL) As the latest U.N. climate summit begins in New York, a new, high-level global network of 500 prominent climate scientists and professionals has submitted a declaration that there is no “climate emergency”. The group has sent a European Climate Declaration with a registered letter to António Guterres, Secretary-General of the United Nations. Professor Guus Berkhout of The Netherlands, who organized the Declaration, said: “So popular is the Declaration with scientists and researchers worldwide that signatories are flooding in not only from within Europe but also from other countries such as the United States and Canada, Australia and New Zealand.” The group’s letter warns the U.N. that “the general-circulation models of climate on which international policy is at present founded are unfit for their purpose”. The Declaration adds that the models, which have predicted far more warming than they should, “are not remotely plausible as policy tools”, in that “they … exaggerate the effect of greenhouse gases such as CO2” and “ignore the fact that enriching the atmosphere with CO2 is beneficial” https://www.thegwpf.co...o-climate-emergency/ We live in very, very curious times..." That professor he mentions spent his whole life working for Shell and other gas companies and started a climate change denier institution. Funded by the koch brothers who are horrible bleeps. And co2 good for us jesus wept. I also want to say its amazing the amount of abuse towards Greta. Whether you agree or disagree is fine but to bully and mock and call a 16 year old girl when you're an adult is pathetic. Attack what she says not who she is. And the president of America mocking her in a tweet. What sort of twilight zone are we living in. The vast vast majority of science is in agreement that current climate change is man made. Wanting a cleaner earth whether you believe that or not is not a bad thing. Less pollution in the air is better for all of our healths and the wider environment. And like that post on loony boards.ie ask yourself. Who do you believe a guy who's pockets have been lined by fossil fuel companies his whole life or wider science. Every single country in the world signed up to the Paris accord apart from Syria(civil war) who have since signed and Nicaragua who felt it didn't go far enough. So that's right and left governments all around the world signing up to it. The right in America is pushing all these lies and bs don't fall it. Don't make it a right and left issue. Rant over.
  2. Met Éireann just issued a Red warning for County Clare in Ireland. Gusts of up to 150 km/h. That's 93 miles ph
  3. The Met office used to be a lot better at warnings. Like last Friday night for instance they had none, I'm close to the border and had 2 inches of snow, know across the border had snow laying too as I was there. Years ago they would have released a flash warning for such a thing if they didn't have a advisory before hand, they didn't. Met Éireann had the warning for up to 5cm of snow for most of previous day.
  4. Sleeting outside now was rain 20 minutes ago. Went for a wee drive up the road was snowing proper at about 120m asl
  5. I wouldn't like to call what will happen. Last Friday night the Met office had no warning yet I had over 2 inches of snow. Met eireann did. We'll have a better idea tomorrow
  6. Nice update from met office " Outlook for Saturday to Monday: Cloudy with outbreaks of rain and perhaps some significnat snow on Saturday, clearing later. Cold, increasingly northerly winds and a few showers Sunday. Milder with rain in the west Monday. I think it's first time I've seen significant and snow in same sentence this year even if it says perhaps. Met eireann also have snow warning for Donegal.
  7. I'm pretty sure the 17th/18th December 2010 was a direct Northerly. I got 1 foot of snow from it in Donegal. End of December 2000 was another potent Northerly. Anyway it's sad times.
  8. Hope they're shivering shortly and barely able to fly in a blizzard
  9. I've noticed the frequency of Northerlies has died down a lot over the years. This confirms what I thought.
  10. Wanted to haha above but they removed it? Seriously looking for some interesting weather be it a storm or snow the monotony is killing me lol.
  11. This Winter is set to be the Mildest ever recorded at many stations in Ireland, incredible, especially given the Background signals . I'm hoping for some colder weather before March is out just to kill some of the insects lol
  12. I posted this in my regional thread but wanted to moan some more ha. I was looking at the Worlds snowiest cities and I'm dumbfounded at this one. 3rd Snowiest city in the world Toyoma Japan, 3.8m of snow. That's 12ft 5.6 inches of snow on average each year. Almost all falls December to March. Now this is the crazy part. Toyoma climate data 1981-2010 December average high 9.6c / low 2.4 / record low -8.4. Average snowfall 22 inches January average high 6c / low -0.1 / record low -11.9c. Average snowfall 63 inches. February average high 6.8c / low -0.3 / record low -11.1c. Average snowfall 49 inches.  March average high 10.9c / low 2.2c / record low -7. Average snowfall 14 inches.  As I'm inland and close to the border with Northern Ireland I checked the Met Office climate data for Northern Ireland 1981-2010. It has a lot of individual stations to check with big differences between coastal and inland however this is the average of all. December average high 7.3c / low 1.7c / record low Castlederg -18.7c January average high 7c / low 1.4c February average high 7.4c / low 1.2c March average high 9.6c / low 2.4c. Now as you can see it's pretty similar average temperature wise. Our averages reflect that the mild SW winds are our predominant wind direction. However from them to receive so much snow yet have such mild averages is mind blowing to me lol. We hit 55° degrees North of the equator, they're a mere 36° degrees North of the equator. Seville in the extreme south of Spain is further North at 37° degrees. It just shows how incredible unfortunate we are when it comes to snowfall.
