Algae bloom in Northwest and cold in Canada
- So why is much of the nation/Canada feeling so COLD? Why is Alaska
The coldest May, June and August on record in Winnipeg, now followed
with the earliest frost in record for the NE edge of the Praries.

Early Prairie frost worries farmers
Hope to salvage once-promising crop
Saturday, August 21, 2004
WINNIPEG (CP) -- One of the earliest frosts on record Friday had
farmers across much of southern Saskatchewan and Manitoba wringing
their hands as they hoped to salvage a once-promising crop.
While the unseasonable cold did not produce the so-called "killing
frost" that can destroy entire fields in a matter of hours, a stretch
of warmer, drier weather is needed in the next few weeks to avert
disaster. "It's just a typical thing, you're at the mercy of Mother
Nature and she can either make you or break you," said Murray
Downing, who is growing winter wheat and canola about 250 kilometres
west of Winnipeg.
"If that had been a harder frost, it could have been a year's worth
of work gone up in smoke."
"A whole whack" of records were set Friday morning in Saskatchewan
and Manitoba, said Environment Canada meteorologist Dale Marciski.
In Winnipeg, the temperature fell to zero degrees Celsius, breaking
the previous record of 0.6 C set in 1895</blockquote>
Just more proof of how powerful the impact on the jet stream is
from the increased conductivities brought about by that algae patch
in the NE I have been talking about since Friday. So why is much of
the nation feeling so COLD? Why is Alaska burning? Here are the

PLUS the tie in the European heat wave last year with algae and jet
The heat wave that killed tens of thousands of French. Some
meteorologists have blamed the jet stream, but have not explained why
the jet has behaved the way it did:
It seems like that heat wave has been looked at from every view but a
biological one. I here attempt to give fair readers my eyes:
