China is experiencing unusual chills this winter with its national average temperature hitting the lowest in 28 years, and snow and ice have closed highways, canceled flights, stranded tourists and knocked out power in several provinces.

They would like us to believe that the coldest winter on record for 28 years across the northern hemisphere is proof of global warming.

50 years ago a cold winter like this would have had the media leaping up and down announcing the coming of the next ice age.

Isn't it wonderful how the injection of billions of dollars worth of funding from taxpayers and very little research has reversed the thinking of scientists and governments over the last 25 years?

From the article:
The national meteorological administration said China is seeing dropping temperatures partly because of south-moving polar cold fronts, caused by melting polar ice from global warming.

The Arctic cold was driven further south setting cold records in Mexico & deeper south into Centra America.

My reports in past topix AGW threads of that period, confirm those events.

Yes, presently, while China is desperately cold, the North Pole & the entire Arctic down to the 80th parallel, days before, was 7 to 10degC warmer than normal, & again, Arctic sea ice freezing has not only come to a stop, but has lost sea ice area.

Again, my present reports in topix AGW threads, confirm these NOT coincidental, but interlinked events.

As mentioned above, China continues to set record cold temperatures, resulting from continuing strong warm fronts thrusting into the North Pole region. AVERAGE arctic temperatures above the 80th parallel have pinnacled twice to 11 degC warmer than normal, as the warm fronts have shoved Arctic cold onto China.

Presently, temperatures above the 80th parallel are 13 degC above average, as warm fronts move into the region, pushing cold Arctic air south.

Presently, temperatures above the 80th parallel are almost 14 degC above average, as warm fronts move into the region, pushing cold Arctic air south.

Presently, temperatures above the 80th parallel are average for the last 3 days. Previously tho, temperatures above the 80th parallel were 2-14deg C above normal....... since Dec. 20, 2012. Often the AGW enhanced warm fronts from the south, pushing hard into the Arctic region, pushed cold Arctic air, which has been in complete darkness for 4+ months, to the south, setting many low temperature records.
