Coldest winter in 1,000 years on its way

After the record heat wave this summer, Russia's weather seems to have acquired a taste for the extreme.
Forecasters say this winter could be the coldest Europe has seen in the last 1,000 years.
The change is reportedly connected with the speed of the Gulf Stream, which has shrunk in half in just the last couple of years. Polish scientists say that it means the stream will not be able to compensate for the cold from the Arctic winds. According to them, when the stream is completely stopped, a new Ice Age will begin in Europe.
So far, the results have been lower temperatures: for example, in Central Russia, they are a couple of degrees below the norm.
“Although the forecast for the next month is only 70 percent accurate, I find the cold winter scenario quite likely,” Vadim Zavodchenkov, a leading specialist at the Fobos weather center, told RT. “We will be able to judge with more certainty come November. As for last summer's heat, the statistical models that meteorologists use to draw up long-term forecasts aren't able to predict an anomaly like that.”
In order to meet the harsh winter head on, Moscow authorities are drawing up measures to help Muscovites survive the extreme cold.
Most of all, the government is concerned with homeless people who risk freezing to death if the forecast of the meteorologists come true. Social services and police are being ordered to take the situation under control even if they have to force the homeless to take help.
Moscow authorities have also started checking air conditioning systems in all socially important buildings. All the conditioners are being carefully cleaned from the remains of summer smog.

this only makes sense

I wish we had a better understanding of the world system. The US seems to be focused on us alone.

Its such a balance - ying/yang - and many people don't realize we are a top fwopping wildly across the floor. They will say "Global warming - haha - what a joke! How do you explain the crazy cold winters?"

"speed of the Gulf Stream, which has shrunk in half"

"speed of the Gulf Stream, which has shrunk in half" - that impacts so much of the world's climate it changes life for billions of people.

I was talking to an elder statesman about my concerns humans wouldn;t survive 20 more years and he asked what could happen to cause that... I said the Gulf Stream could shift directions.

Life on Earth will never be the same, if the Gulf Stream does much more shrinking or slowing down... Europe will be ancient history lessons - Russia a block of ice.
