Brrr… Record Cold Kills 175 in Northern India (Video)

Northern India recorded its lowest temperature in 44 years this week.
The cold is causing deaths across the region.

Over 175 people have died in the latest cold spell.
The Hindu reported:

Plummeting mercury, coupled with thick fog cover, threw normal life out of gear in the entire North India on Monday, with 24 more people succumbing to the cold wave in various parts of the region.

While 20 more persons died in Uttar Pradesh, four persons lost their lives in Uttarakhand, officials said.

Delhi continued to shiver as mercury was below normal in the city by five notches to settle at 2.4 degrees, even as it rose from yesterday’s 1.9 degrees Celsius.

The maximum temperature too dipped to seven degrees below normal to settle at 13.4 degrees Celsius.

Met department forecasts a clear sky for Tuesday with fog in the morning.

UP death toll rises

In Uttar Pradesh, six people lost their lives in Ghazipur, three each in Azamgarh and Barabanki, two each in Fatehpur, Sultanpur and Chandauli and one each in Jaunpur and Siddhartnagar districts. With this, the death toll in the state this winter has risen to 175.

Muzaffarnagar which shivered at minus 0.7 degrees Celsius, continued to be the coldest place in the state.

Agra recorded 0.6 degrees Celsius, Najibabad (Bijnor) 1.0, Lucknow and Aligarh 1.4 each and Kheri 1.6 degrees Celsius, the Met department said.

The entire state was in the grip of biting cold as maximum temperatures too remained below normal by seven to 15 notches in most parts.

The latest temperature data shows that the planet has not warmed in the past 15 years and is likely heading to a mini ice age.

    I sure am glad they changed “Global Warming” to “Global Climate Change” because otherwise this could be very embarrassing.

    Exactly, All Is Lost. Our government leaders are ahead of the game! Of course, they are – this is about protecting THEIR interests. They are only slow to act when it is about protecting our interests.

    The latest temperature data shows that the planet has not warmed in the past 15 years and is likely heading to a mini ice age.

    What do the scientists say who recorded the data:
    Q.1 “First, please confirm that they do indeed reveal no warming trend since 1997.”

    The linear trend from August 1997 (in the middle of an exceptionally strong El Nino) to August 2012 (coming at the tail end of a double-dip La Nina) is about 0.03°C/decade, amounting to a temperature increase of 0.05°C over that period, but equally we could calculate the linear trend from 1999, during the subsequent La Nina, and show a more substantial warming.

    As we’ve stressed before, choosing a starting or end point on short-term scales can be very misleading. Climate change can only be detected from multi-decadal timescales due to the inherent variability in the climate system. If you use a longer period from HadCRUT4 the trend looks very different. For example, 1979 to 2011 shows 0.16°C/decade (or 0.15°C/decade in the NCDC dataset, 0.16°C/decade in GISS). Looking at successive decades over this period, each decade was warmer than the previous – so the 1990s were warmer than the 1980s, and the 2000s were warmer than both. Eight of the top ten warmest years have occurred in the last decade.

    Over the last 140 years global surface temperatures have risen by about 0.8ºC. However, within this record there have been several periods lasting a decade or more during which temperatures have risen very slowly or cooled. The current period of reduced warming is not unprecedented and 15 year long periods are not unusual.

    revisiting the ‘No global warming for 16 years’ revelation..

    [Alteration of scientific conclusions: The final scientific draft of the IPCC’s
    1995 Third Assessment Report, submitted by hundreds of participating
    scientists, had concluded five times that no manmade warming influence
    is yet discernible:

    “None of the studies cited above has shown clear evidence that we
    can attribute the observed changes to the specific cause of increases
    in greenhouse gases.”

    “No study to date has positively attributed all or part
    [of observed climate change] to anthropogenic causes.”

    “While none of these studies has specifically considered the attribution
    issue, they often draw some attribution conclusions for which there is
    little justification.”

    “Any claims of positive detection of significant climate change are likely
    to remain controversial until uncertainties in the total natural variability
    of the climate system are reduced.”

    “When will an anthropogenic effect on climate change be identified?
    It is not surprising that the best answer to this question is, ‘We do
    not know.’”

    The IPCC did not want any of these things said. It asked a single
    scientist, Dr. Ben Santer of the Lawrence Livermore National
    Laboratory, to rewrite the already-concluded final draft to remove
    all five of the statements shown above, and to replace them with:

    “The body of evidence now points to a discernible
    human influence on global climate.”]

    The Earth’s climate has been changing for 4.6 billion years.

    Deal with it.

    What, these peeps are dying in 30-35 degree Fahrenheit weather??? What up wid dat?

  • MT Geoff

    #11: The area where people are dying of cold at right around freezing is an area that is usually “sub-tropical”, a lot like LA or San Francisco. Because temps in the 30s F (0-5C) are so rare, most homes have little or no heating and many families have only a little money to buy fuel for heating.
    In a low-energy-cost society, these families would have temperature control and energy would be cheap so they could afford to heat their homes. In summer, they could cool them to a more comfortable level — especially when children are ill. As things stand, many children swelter out fevers in homes we’d consider way too hot in summer.
    The “green” energy plans leave these people in misery and expose many of them to death by cold or heat.

    Record cold…?
    Obviously caused by global warming.

    sad that in this day and age anyone anywhere
    dies from hot or cold weather conditions.. 🙁


  • i blame this on man-made global cooling.

    Having lived in northern India through its near freezing winter nights it is no surprise hundreds die of exposure. Indiahas millions of people who live in the open with no shelter whatsoever. I arrived in Patna in mid-January during a cold snap on the midnight train. Patna is a city in notheast India and in the area near the train station there were several hundred people of all ages sleeping on the ground in huddles to trty and ward ofthe near freezing night temperatures.
    The destitute (poor isn’t an accurate word) in Inda are unable to afford anything more than second hand flimsy rags for clothing, have no possibility of affording blankets, and have little body fat to insulate them against cold as they are scrawny and emaciated from inadequate food, unsafer water supplies and its ensuing body weakening diaharrea.

    Pink Tie Try sleeping out in your backyard a few night in summer clothes with no ten, sleeping bag & blankets when the low temperatures fall to 30 f and I bet you wouldn’t survive to long either. It is obvious you have no understanding of the suffering of millions in poor countries such as India where an effective blanket costs at least $10 and the breadwinner of a family is fortunate to earn $100 a year.

    Al Gore is sadly mistaken China India and upper states in America has recorded lower temperature for Jan 2012.

    ooh wow, bet that was all over the news.. / 🙄 s/


  • Lim Lynn

    Actually, Al Gore Global Gate scandal where scientist were falsifying data to prove them right was the worst kind scenario and don’t forget about solar panel that company receive Barack Hussein Obama’s financial aid went bankrupt. Green Environmentalist Pagan New Age hippie worship dead trees and animals which defines animistic is a bad idea. Electric car battery become flat after charging many times would need replacement and would cause more environmental pollution [Factories who manufacture solar panel and battery for Electric Car] in China. They are just making $$$$$$$ from all foolish people around the world who believe it’s functional futuristic technology. Once you find the trend with evidence every pieces of the puzzle will form a picture for us to see what the future holds for us.

    That really shows how persistent, continuous observant and motivated to address the issue to prevent everyone from falling into Socialist Democrat Commie trap. That would throw non prepared Socialist Democrat Commie off guard. Well done bg.

  • Highlander

    I would welcome a mini ice age. Colder climates favor the more rugged individuals among us. America’s parasites and slackers would be at a disadvantage for a change …. Maybe that would prompt them to learn how to take care of themselves and they’d quit sponging off the rest of us. Wishful thinking I’m sure …

  • Lim Lynn

    Don’t be despair and worry about Emperor Barack Hussein Obama’s decree we just getting started for the time being where secession petition where he knew all along and prepared DHS and other governmental body for Civil War and Economy Collapse. Moreover, it will be too many resisting him while he gets back up from Arab, Iran, China and Russia wants America to be in venerable state to allow them to attack. Seems Arab, Iran, China, Russia and North Korea wanted revenge when the cue for America citizens to overthrow Barack Hussein Obama abuse and overuse power.

    Brr so cold
    @ Bg
    It’s not a surprise that Global Warming was possible perpetrated thus we going to see whether or not; Barack Hussein Obama going to put his hand down to crush Iran or the other way given invitation please destroy America, say welcome Mahmoud Ahmadinejad since I have already milk dry America financial system and I’m ready to leave. Leaving America and The People defenseless. Then, ended up a massive number of people dead.

  • Arcturus

    The stupidity is legion in these comments. One more time: the weather outside of your trailer house is not a reliable indicator of global, long-term weather patterns.

  • george

    Clearly, as a political pundit, you are more knowledgeable about climatology then the scientific community. Phew, glad we resolved this “problem”.

  • john

    Climate truthers all agree that there is a GIANT CONSPIRACY about climate change. Only a small elite are able to even comprehend the size of the conspiracy, let alone have the courage to fight against it

  • A scientist

    You realize that with a planet’s ecosystem being very complex, it’s possible for global warming to actually make some parts of the planet colder, for a time, at least. And no, we are not the sole cause of climate change, but we are speeding it up. What previously took thousands of years, is now happening in a matter of decades. That, too, has happened before without our help. A large volcanic eruption, or the errant asteroid or comet. In those cases, and significant percentage of life on Earth ends. I understand your resistance to change. I also understand your contribution to that change. It is unfortunate that you will not bear the consequences of your short-sightedness and willful ignorance. That will be left to your children and grand-children.
