It could be a very cold Winter. The apparent turmoil in weather patterns is producing some heat spikes, but larger parts of the planet are experiencing exceptionally cold weather. This is not reported by the media.

This happens as a planet cools. The current warming phase stopped some years ago. This is widely know by the scientific community. It's hard to not notice such things when sattellites are recording tempertaures all over the planet.

The North Pole is experiencing it's coldest Summer on record.

Amazingly, the BBC are not reporting this fact.

26.07.22 в 19:19

Every day it seems there a headlines and rumors talking about global warming. One newspaper will claim its hype, that the mainstream media is misreading scientific data and then using that information to mislead the public. On the same day, an internet media outlet will claim that there is new scientific “proof” that global warming is on the rise and the planet is doomed. The very next day there is a terrible cold front bringing record cold temperatures and people everywhere ask each other, “Global what?”
Almost everything you have heard from the mainstream media about global warming, greenhouse gases, and carbon dioxide , has been misleading at best and plainly false at its worst.
Al Gores and all his cronies have been shouting for years that the earth is heating up to the point of destruction when, in truth, those greenhouse gases are actually causing the earth to cool down.
In a report made public in the Principia Scientific International (PSI) NASA tracked infrared emissions from the earth’s upper atmosphere during and after the solar storm that happened March 8-10th. They discovered that most of the energy released from the sun during this storm was reflected back into space, NOT dumped into earth’s atmosphere.

Liars, nothing but fearmongering to keep the people in fear. If global warming is such a threat, why have temps gone down in the last decade? Why, when i go on holiday every year, do i see massive oceanfront properties under construction everywhere, as well as here in Europe? Why are the banks funding these if we are all about to be flooded by melting ice caps?

you people (the BBC propaganda warehouse operatives responsible for this crap) are pure evil


21.07.22 в 20:06

You are always trying to describe some important issues like environmental or social. I like your approach. And also I appreciate your choice.

Heatwaves across the world
Heatwaves caused record temperature around the world.
This is News review from BBC learning English.
I’m Neil, and I’m Sian.
And you can learn lots of vocabulary about this story in the programme.
You can. And remember, subscribe to our channel, like this video and try the quiz on our website.
Now, today’s story.
Heatwaves are pushing temperatures to their highest levels ever recorded.
It has reached over 40 degrees in parts of Europe, North America, Asia and the Middle East.
Wildfires have been burning out of control.
Experts say heatwaves like this have become more frequent because of climate change caused by human.
Sian, you’ve been looking at the headlines.
What’s the vocabulary?
We have “scorch”, “bakes”, and “wrestles”.
This is News review from BBC learning English.
Let’s have a look at our first headline.
This one is from Earth Observatory from NASA.
Heatwaves and Fires Scorch Europe, Africa and Asia.
So. Let’s start with that word “heatwaves” which is everywhere, and it’s just means ‘a period of time where the temperature is much higher than usual’.
But from the headline, the word we’re looking at is ‘Scorch’, and it’s connected to heat, isn’t it? And we’ve got a lot of words a bout heat in English.
Yes, we do. And ‘Scorch’ is one of them.
It means ‘to heat something to a level, which damages it’.
So, for example, Neil, have you ever walked on a pavement in bare feet on the hot day?
Yeah, it’s horrible, isn’t it? It can scorch the bottom of your feet. And that word ‘Scorch” – we can use which the word ‘marks’. Now, for example, if you’re ironing a shirt, you want to make your shirt nice and flat. If you leave the iron on the shirt for too long, it can leave scorch marks. It does. I have done this before, and ‘scorch’ in this headline means ‘the heat from the Sun actually, literally damages the grounds, so it scorched the ground.

It was hot like this in Việt Nam a few years ago in the North and Central part of our country. But the weather in VN has changed a lots, warning people about the climate change has a big influence to our country but people still littering, using motorbikes and don't using buses....Disappointed to be honest :( Hope the heatwave will end soon in europe!

Man lernt sehr gut, bei eurer Sendung. Vielen Dank. Dennoch tun mir die Angestellten leid. Man merkt Ihnen an, wie schwer es Ihnen fällt, zu pro formen. Ich finde es schrecklich, dass Firmen immer noch diese Hierarchien anwenden und es notwendig finden, hochgebildeten Angestellten, Vorschriften zu machen. Man muss sich heutzutage regelrecht prostituieren um seinen Job zu behalten. Es ist demütigend, entwürdigend, abscheulich. Man muss selbstständig sein, um ein gutes friedvolles Leben führen zu können.

Oratio Imperata

Most Gracious and Most Merciful God,
Creator, Source and Giver of all things,
Most powerful in heaven and on earth,
We give You honor and glory.

We thank You
For our home – the earth;
For our light – the sun, moon and stars;
For our solace – our family and friends, our community, our neighbors.

United as Your children, we come to You, pleading,
Shower us with rain, provide us with water that we need.
Father, Your children are begging to survive,
Hear us, we desire to live.

Prolonged drought is depriving us of the fruits of our toil;
Low water supply means hunger and thirst for most of us;
El Niño continues to threaten our relationship with one another.
O Lord, this is a very hostile phenomenon that we beg for You to end.

At this time of looming catastrophe, dear Lord, dwell in our hearts.
Teach us to be more generous; bring out the best in us;
Turn our eyes and ears toward the needs of others, especially the poor.
Move us to share more, care more, serve more and love more.

Holy God, You sanctify this earth to be our sacred abode.
Grant us courage to take in hand the sufferings of the environment;
Grant us might to save and protect the beauty of nature.
Grant us wisdom to restore whatever we have destroyed.

O Loving God, behold on us, Your beloved children
Feel us, feel for us;
Let heaven cry and its tears be our blessed rain.
Have mercy on us Lord, have mercy.

We beg you,
Most Gracious and Merciful God,
Please, let it rain.
