Bone-chilling temps sink to -80 degrees F in Siberia, shattering records

Western Siberia is currently stuck in a mini Ice Age as temperatures plummeted to nearly -80 degrees Fahrenheit, breaking all previous cold records. And meteorologists say that even icier weather is coming. Temps tumbled to -62 degrees Celsius (-79.6°F) at the Bolshoe Olkhovskoe oilfield in the Khanti-Mansi region this week. And the Kazym village in the Beloyarsky district showed a biting -58 degrees C (-72.4°F).

In the province of Nadym, the bone-shattering cold pushed past the -50 degrees C (-58°F) mark, forcing schools to shut down. In provinces like Yakutia, schools stayed open despite a bone-chilling -52 degrees C (-61.6°F). While these arctic temperatures are commonplace in eastern Siberia, it rarely gets this frigid in the west.

The glacial weather has frozen vehicles’ fuel lines and batteries, forcing people to take taxis. And even that wasn’t a foolproof method of getting to work because many of the cabs wouldn’t start either. With demand outpacing supply, the price of a cab ride tripled during the deep freeze.

    First , Russell Johnson is absolutely correct . The infiltrated EPA is a Trojan Horse used to undermine the USA economy and financially reward grant seeking pals of the Democrat administration . $$ Billions wasted on defunct “renewable ” companies reliant on tax payer grants and loan guarantees . The EPA doing it’s part by killing industries through intimidation and regulatory overreach sanctioned by the White House .
    If a branch of the military turned on the public what would happen ? Yet the EPA
    threatens the livelihood of thousands with absurd regulations based on
    claims of global warming Armageddon anti-science speculation and proven failed
    climate simulations based on a trace gas that is beneficial to life .
    Russian scientists recently (oh no those Russian’s again) are making the case for a return to another mini ice age due to natural variables like reduced sun spots . If they are right it seems highly unlikely the solution will be to burn more fossil fuels .
    Scary projections of Global warming is a man made con and as the $$ gravy train stops the ring leaders will move on to find new suckers .
