Xinjiang records lowest temperature in history at -52.3 °C -62.1 °F), China

Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region has set a new record for low temperatures, reaching -52.3 °C (-62.14 °F) in Fuyun County, leading to the death of numerous birds and surpassing a cold record held since 1960. Amidst the Chinese Lunar New Year’s return, this severe cold has resulted in extensive traffic disruptions and emergency responses across the region.

As the cold wave grips northern Xinjiang, temperatures have fallen sharply by 35 to 46 °C (63 to 82.8 °F) over the past three days, causing widespread wildlife fatalities and transportation chaos.

The temperature in Tuerhong Township of Fuyun County reached a historic low on February 18 at -52.3 °C (-62.14 °F), surpassing the -51.5 °C (-60.7 °F) record set on January 21, 1960. This temperature is close to China’s national record low of -53 °C (-63.4 °F) observed in Mohe, Heilongjiang Province in 2023.

The extreme weather has impacted 853 kilometers (530 miles) of roads in Altay, with 47 vehicles and 86 rescuers deployed overnight to clear snow and ice.

The broader effects of the cold spell have led to the closure of 43 road sections and 623 toll stations in regions including Inner Mongolia, Xinjiang, Liaoning, Jilin, and Heilongjiang, according to the transport ministry.

The National Meteorological Center has issued a high-level warning for freezing conditions, expecting temperatures to fall by 8 to 12 °C (14 to 21.6 °F) in most parts of China from Monday to Thursday, February 22.

Additionally, parts of Hunan, Guizhou Province, and northeast China are forecasted to experience temperature drops of more than 20 °C (36 °F).

    (The dogmatic theory of global warming has been exposed on all fronts, but the myth-makers who wanted to introduce global green taxonomy and collect trillions of dollars are not giving-up)

    2023 was a year of record cold temperatures, but the media were silent and concentrated only on the record high temperatures of the summer. Please read the article that was written by David Craig in the link below: Here are some quotations from his article.

    In 2022, United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres warned us it was “code red for humanity” due to supposed global warming caused by CO2 emissions from human activities. This year, Mr. Guterres upped the rhetoric when he claimed: “The era of global warming has ended; the era of global boiling has arrived.” However, if you were to Google ‘2023 record cold’, you could get a quite different picture of this year’s weather: Please record-breaking temperatures in the article. 2023 is a Year of Record Cold Temperatures – But the Media Are Silent – The Daily Sceptic

    “So, in spite of the warnings of planetary overheating from Mr. Guterres and the climate alarmists, it seems that this year record cold temperatures have been recorded on every continent. Our rulers and their obedient mainstream media hyperventilate and panic, bombarding us with their many stories of this year’s supposed ‘record hot temperatures’ and ‘Earth on fire’ apparently caused by man-made global warming. Yet there is always somewhere on Earth which has experienced its coldest ever temperature record. However, our rulers and their compliant media don’t like to mention these record cold temperatures as they don’t fit in with the ‘Earth is boiling’ narrative. And our rulers are desperate to convince us that our planet is overheating.”

    Yet, those record cold temperatures of 2023 are broken in 2024.

    However, the real reason for these high record temperatures in the winter and the summer as I stated repeatedly is the rapid changes associated with Earth’s magnetic field and the rapid shifting of its poles, especially the North Pole. In fact, throughout Earth’s long history, massive changes are always associated with shifting of Earth’s magnetic field.

    All weather patterns and geophysical activities are ruled by Earth’s magnetic field and its interaction with the Sun and also linked to highly energetic events outside the solar system, like Gamma-ray burst that triggered the December 26, 2004 magnitude 9.1 Sumatra, Indonesia earthquake which generated a gigantic tsunami that was observed worldwide and caused tremendous devastation and deaths throughout the Indian Ocean region.

    Sadly, the physics establishment is ruled by scientists who are a million times closer of being politicians rather than true scientists. In fact, the leading scientists are part of the political establishment and they have to be politically correct. In other words, any scientific fact that pose threat to the political-economic agenda has to be suppressed at all costs.
