"There hasn't been such a cold in 128 years": Gas shortage in Europe was aggravated by severe frosts


Northern and Eastern Europe, from Scandinavia to the Urals, was hit by extremely cold weather for the beginning of December, according to the Polish portal Onet.


On December 6, in Swedish Lapland, the air temperature dropped to -40,1 ° C in Nikkaluokta and to -40,9 ° C in Naimakka. In Russia, in Ust-Shchugor in the northeast of Komi, -39,7 ° C was recorded, and in Kanevka, in the east of the Kola Peninsula, the thermometer showed -40,2 ° C.

In St. Petersburg, the minimum temperature extremity has been covered since the end of the 19th century. In the northern capital of the Russian Federation, the temperature dropped to -21,0 ° C.

Earlier, the coldest night on December 6 was in 1893 - 128 years ago, the temperature dropped to -20,5 ° С

- writes the edition.

This low temperature is associated with a relatively stable high pressure zone that stretches from Norway to Russia. It actively draws in cold air from the Arctic. Every day the frosts get stronger and spread to other European countries. -30 ° C to -33 ° C has been recorded in Kuusamo and Rovaniemi in Finland.

The "frosty tsunami", according to forecasts of meteorologists, will spread further. Until Thursday, freezing temperatures will be in the Baltics and in Moscow, where during the day it will be in the region of -10 ° С, and at night the thermometer will drop to -20 ° С. Severe frosts will also hit Poland. It will be especially cold in Podlasie, a historical-geographical region on the Belarusian-Polish border, where temperatures will drop below -15 ° C.

Against this background, the situation with the raging natural gas shortage in Europe will only get worse. According to Gazprom, by the beginning of December, European underground storage facilities were empty by a quarter. At the same time, Europe approached the heating season with a smaller energy reserve than usual.

As of December 4, about a quarter (23,4%) of the volume of gas injected this year has already been withdrawn from underground gas storage facilities in Europe

- said in the message of the Russian energy concern.

    Gas is fine in Northern Europe. Sweden has 80% of electricity at hydroelectric and nuclear power plants. Norway has 100% of the hydroelectric power plant. Norway exports GHG.

    Here Aaftershoc read ... British serviceman Chilishe Mwamba has filed a lawsuit against the local Department of Defense, demanding compensation in the amount of 860 thousand pounds. An Afro-Englishman froze to death during a business trip, his body could not stand the inhuman conditions of the harsh Estonian harsh. And he did start to stutter.

    And enough to rely on General Frost, he only helped us in the war and helped us when twice the enemies were allowed to the capital. General Brains would help us now.

      There is no need to spread fascist tales about Santa Claus. They received it in 1941 ... they did not fight because of the frost, but because of their Nazi-racist swagger, stupidly underestimating the strategy and tactics of our commanders !!!

    "There hasn't been such a cold in 128 years": Gas shortage in Europe was aggravated by severe frosts

    This is the first time I've heard about gas shortages in Europe.
    About 128 years without "such a cold" too.

    In 41, weren't the aliens from the Hitlerite European Union of the 1940s wrapping their second-hand Aryan bots with feminine leggings with fleece over fashionable pelops? It did not reach their advanced brains in the winter of 1941-42, they stayed for the second year - in the winter of 1942-43 they retried the exam in the Don steppes, but they also passed the nikua, they wove ersatz felt boots from straw and insulated the words of Bosko with women’s rags. It was the same.
    Our soldier was ready to fight in any weather.

      The weather for all the belligerents was the same, it was just that the commissary service of the German army was not ready for frosts, because the blitzkrieg plan did not provide for the conduct of hostilities in winter, until winter the Germans planned to defeat everyone and sit in warm apartments, and the summer offensive of 1942 was the Nazis did not plan to complete in winter encirclement, but the Soviet army was to blame for these blunders, which put up stubborn resistance to the superior forces of the enemy.

    "There hasn't been such a cold in 128 years": Gas shortage ...

    It is very likely that this began to affect the influence of SP2 directly on the European climate. laughing
    According to Gazprom, "the situation with the raging natural gas shortage in Europe will only get worse." what Look who benefits, and not what some uncles say in bikes.
    The thermometer outside the window shows + 6 ° С. But.

    I am sure that there will be no cold in Ukraine, there will be a severe frost. And in the west of Ukraine - permafrost and all the shaggy wild boars will die.
