Climate Change or Little Ice Age? 11 June 2019
The polar clouds are associated with very cold air temperatures and expand rapidly toward the Equator when it gets colder.
This year noctilucent cloud watchers are seeing the polar clouds further toward the Equator than ever before.

Ten years ago, at the last Solar Minimum noctilucent clouds were also very prominent.
Noctilucent clouds will always increase at Solar Minimum as the sun reaches a low activity period during its 11 year cycle and weather on Earth cools in response.
Like any cloud, noctilucent clouds shade the ground beneath them from the warming effects of the sun, slowing summer melting of ice caps and glaciers.
The inconvenient truth for UN climate change experts is that they know the Greenland Ice Cap has been expanding since 2017.
Don't expect them to tell the world about Greenland any time soon...nor Antarctica.
Temperatures need to rise about 30C before the two mile thick Antarctic Ice Cap even starts to melt.
Not even ridiculous climate change temperature predictions are forecasting a 30C rise.
North American Sierra Nevada, Cascades, Rockies and Alaskan Mountains have received up to twice the average snowfall this season....
Burning fossil fuels are warming the planet according to UN climate change experts.
Why then is the upper atmosphere temperature and solar activity at an historical low in 2019?
