You didn't think these guys wouldn't be taking advantage of the sharply changing environment?
They've been planning it for decades, knowing what's coming.
They're just as much a part of the GSM/magnetic pole shift as the meridional jet stream or muons.

Sadly I agree.

The next storm system is being independently characterized as "bizarre" and "unique".
Its inception and progress is probably something to remember for future reference.

I figured I'd consult the best available: stormhamster.com

Always thorough to the point of torture - recommended reading though:

"Attention turns to the developing storm system tomorrow. It's the whole undercut you can really start to see it now. Intense cold air in that pipe in the speckled clouds. Existing storm itself is incredible, heading northward."
[much, much more on his page... stormhamster.com ....much, much more.]

Overnight to this morning. Frames are 20 minute jumps here. Look at the massive expanse of cold air pouring westward through British Columbia and spilling into the Gulf of Alaska and then fueling storm formation.

This cold air means business. It has been pooling for weeks.

Such cold air with those speckled clouds. Also note the surge southward which is our kick to start our redevelopment low for Friday and Saturday.

Yet, the big thing between the two loops, is all the cold air is finally being wrapped in and pulled east to usher in the coming pattern of which is deep winter. It also has no where to go. Has to come along. And it leaves a footprint for a reloading too.

"It looks like the next 2 weeks could be a bit more moderated. The polar vortex has strengthened and shouldn't be displaced from the pole for a bit so jet stream patterns should be a bit calmer for the time.It's going to sit up there, get real cold, then displace again for late Jan."

Polar Vortex 3d forecast model has it doing quite a dance after it expands into two "lobes" in the next 4 days confirming the cold arriving. The larger "lobe" over Russia will be feeding the smaller one over North America.

now:


48hrs:


4 days: This one is quite cold for North America. Several days remain quite cold.
Then the model has it going crazy but that's getting too far out to depend on a model.

It has taken researchers more than 4 years to fully wrap their minds around what happened, and their results were published just this week in the January 13, 2020 edition of Nature Physics.

Explosions in Earth’s magnetic field happen all the time, writes Dr. Tony Philips of spaceweather.com. Gusts of solar wind press against Earth’s magnetosphere, squeezing lines of magnetic force together. The lines crisscross and reconnect, literally exploding and propelling high energy particles toward Earth — auroras are the afterglow of this process.

“Usually, these explosions happen at least 100,000 miles from Earth, far downstream in our planet’s magnetic tail,” explains the study’s lead author Vassilis Angelopoulos of UCLA.

“On December 20, 2015, however, we observed a reconnection event only 30,000 miles away–more than 3 times closer than normal.”

Before this event, many researchers felt that reconnection at such proximity was impossible–that Earth’s nearby magnetic field was too stable for such explosions … or so the thinking went.

“Now we know better,” Angelopoulos says. “The THEMIS multipoint observations are iron-clad. It really happened, and this is going to make a big impact on future studies of geomagnetic storms.”

Brutal cold snap brings death toll to at least 170 in Afghanistan, India, and Pakistan
"Heavy snow, rain, and frigid temperatures across Afghanistan, India, and Pakistan continue to trigger avalanches that have brought the death toll to at least 170, as of Thursday, January 16, 2020.
In Pakistan, at least 15 more people, including five army soldiers, died in avalanches in Gilgit-Baltistan and Azad Jammu and Kashmir, bringing the fatality count to at least 121 in the country.

In Astore district, avalanches killed five soldiers, a woman, and a child in two separate locations, according to officials. Several others were injured as well, and four houses were damaged."

"Why is it I feel my freedoms slipping away from this read?"
It's the verbs.

'are focused'

'to mitigate'
'to adapt'
[oddly, these two are opposites. If you want to avoid having to adapt, you mitigate. And adapting in their own way looks to be their goal while using "mitigation" as the control lever over behavior. This opens the door to "whimsical" policy decision-making]

'raising' ambition
[we definitely need much less ambition in this area]

'have' plans....'to reduce'....'to build' -- in alignment.


'accelerating' change...'to ensure' businesses 'play'....'tackling'.

'creating' governance and mechanisms
'to deliver' plans.
