Australia Is Small – But Moscow Is Huge

The press discovered this summer that Moscow makes up a good 90% of the planet. At least it did for a few weeks, while it was hot.

How about the rest of the planet? We know that Australia is quite small compared to Moscow, and yet the entire continent is running well below normal temperatures. Pay no attention to those dark blue areas on the map below. Compared to Moscow, they are insignificant.

Last winter, the Mayor of Moscow promised a “winter without snow.”

(METEOROLOGYNEWS.COM)  When one thinks of Moscow in the winter, visions of snow-covered domes and Russians cloaked in fur coats often come to mind.  But if the mayor of Moscow has his way, this winter will be much different.  It will be a winter without snow.

How did that work out for him?

A total of 392,000 cubic meters of snow have been removed from Moscow streets in the past 24 hours, a spokesman for the Russian capital’s authorities said Sunday. He said since the start of the winter, over 17 million cu m of snow have been cleared in Moscow. Meteorologists say February has seen record snowfalls in the Russian capital in the past 40 years.

Last winter in Moscow, temperatures were far below normal. It was a much smaller city back then.

    So, there were record snowfalls in Moscow, followed by a record heatwave? Hmmm, interesting.

  2. Neil says:

    So Australia is cold, even by measuring against the artificially cooled 1901-2000 mean?

    Wow.

  3. MikeAinOz says:

    What is even more unusual is the rain, accompanying the cool weather, occurring in the North, influenced by La Nina and a negative Indian Ocean Dipole (IOD) . This is the year to come and see the outback in full bloom. We’ve even had good winter rain down south for the first time in about 15 years.

    The MSM is just not interested in anything that is not hot or a disaster that they can blame on CAGW.

    Heat Expands – cold Contracts. Moscow blew up, and Oz shrank.

    Everyone knows that!
