We discuss and comment on the role agriculture will play in the containment of the CO2 problem and address protocols for terraforming the planet Earth.
A model farm template is imagined as the central methodology. A broad range of timely science news and other topics of interest are commented on.

Rapid Global Cooling Alert
The one thing that i am comfortable with is that the Heat content of the northern Hemisphere has not increased for twenty years. In fact it can be thought of now as stable downward. By the way this represents powerful empirical evidence that CO2 is not affecting temperatures at all.
Now we are starting to get those cool days. My own concern is that we have a sudden cold snap that freezes the Rhine, the Thames and the Hudson sooner rather than later.
This item makes it clear that conditions are now set to produce a serious cold snap even this winter..
Rapid Global Cooling Alert

Climate, if it changes at all, evolves so slowly that the difference cannot be seen in a human lifetime. That was the opinion of most people, and nearly all scientists, through the first half of the 20th century. No longer. No matter how many times the press and the government has screamed at us that that we are living in a warming world Nature is screaming louder that it is getting cooler.
On Wednesday night August 17 the mercury in the Netherlands dropped to 0 degrees. This is unusual because never anywhere in the country at this time of year has the temperature dropped to freezing. According to Weather Online, in the period from 20 July to 21 August there has never been reported frost on the ground.
Record cold in parts of Europe—some the coldest in 100 years, some the coldest ever. That is the reality of August 13, 2016. Summer snows fell in Sweden and a city in Saxony experienced its coldest temperature on record. Is it just Europe that is dramatically turning colder, because of a slowing Atlantic current or the entire world?
The latest chart above shows the large reduction of the northeastern Pacific warm blob, and the huge growth in the North Atlantic cold region. Source: cropped from Unisys.
The above chart shows two major developments: 1) the northeastern Pacific warm blob has shriveled away massively, and 2) the North Atlantic cool spot has exploded in size and is now a vast region of cold sea surface temperatures. The northern hemisphere is de facto getting refrigerated.
Even the mainstream news channels are getting into the act. “The Earth is likely to get relief in 2017 from record scorching temperatures. According to the government, July was the hottest single month since records began in the 19th century, driven by greenhouse gases and an El Nino event warming the Pacific. In a welcome break, a new annual record is unlikely in 2017 since the effect of El Nino – a phenomenon that warms the eastern Pacific and can disrupt weather patterns worldwide every two-seven years – is fading.”
It was from 2008 that the handwriting was on the wall. In May of that year the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) predicted that the North Pole would be ice-free during the 2008 melt season because of ‘global warming.’ In Feb 2009 they admitted that they’ve underreported Arctic ice extent by 193,000 square miles (500,000 square kilometers). They blamed the error on satellite problems and sensor drift. Moreover, the ice melt during the Antarctic summer (October-January) of 2008-2009 was the lowest ever recorded in the 30 years of satellite history. Such was the finding reported last week by Marco Tedesco and Andrew Monaghan in the journal Geophysical Research.
Having already reported record cold in Antarctica this year at the Russian instillation, in 2010 the German Neumayer III station recorded the lowest temperature ever—since starting operations there 29 years ago. The mercury dropped to -50.2°C (-58.36°F).
In New Zealand in the beginning of August the temperature in the city of Queenstown, South Island, dropped to -6.5 ° C (the historical record for August is -7.8 ° C), making this one of the lowest levels recorded in the last hundred years. The next morning the temperature dropped to -7.9 ° C on the town of Waiouru Astrip, and -7.1 ° C in Dunedin.
I remember writing in 2011 that Christmas day was the coldest ever with mercury plummeting to MINUS 18 as UK headed towards the biggest December freeze since 1890, read the headlines on the 25th of that December. The mercury plummeted to –5.9°C at Glenlivet in 1996, but that record was smashed. Several parts of Sweden, including the southern region Götaland and eastern Svealand, will have experienced the coldest December in at least 110 years.
On 22 July 2015 a carefully planned, 115-day scientific expedition on the Canadian icebreaker CCGS Amundsen has been put on hold as the vessel was called to help resupply ships navigate heavy ice on the eastern side of Hudson Bay. Worst ice conditions in 20 years!
Last August, we had record-breaking cold in several areas of the world. The mercury dipped to 17.3 degree Celsius in Shanghai on July 6, close to the historic maximum temperature of 15.9 degree Celsius on July 2, 1876. Meaning that was the coldest it has been there in 145 years!
Last August we also read: Exceptional’ cold front blankets Montana, Wyoming peaks with rare July snow, reads the headline in the Washington Post. We even had the first freezing temperature ever recorded for the month of August in Casper Wyoming.
Global warming is something that has been rammed down the public’s throat and yet only fifty percent believe the audacious lies. The biggest difference between republicans and democrats over climate change today is that the republicans do not believe in manmade warming (but only a fool cannot see that the climate is changing dramatically) and the Democrats have all turned into scientists or so they think.
It was in 2009, after scientists announced that we had no global warming for 10 years already, that Oklahoma Sen. James Inhofe, the leading Republican on the Environment and Public Works Committee said, “Until this year, any scientist, reporter or politician who dared raise even the slightest suspicion about the science behind global warming was dismissed and repeatedly mocked. Today I have been vindicated.” Republicans are still crying foul play, and are still being ridiculed by the Obama establishment seven years later.
As the weather turns colder and as people get hungry, there will be a worldwide struggle for power as people and governments get desperate. The one-world government globalists are the same bunch that are the global warming crowd so watch out!
It is a race against time now what will crush us first. The financial world, the real economy, war and overwhelming cold that will decimate the agricultural sector, which is already being hammered by floods, drought and now increasing cold.
