Global warming: is there anything it can’t do?

Back to Kyoto!

Back to Kyoto!

2014: The science is settled: “Polar Vortex” caused by global warming.

Time “Science” editor: Global warming causing record cold.

Other experts join in: Meteorologist Eric Holthaus, who announced in 2013 that he was going to have a vasectomy to help save the planet, boldly proclaimed on Twitter “Yes, you can thank global warming for this taste of the ‘polar vortex’.”

The Weather Channel publishes this definitive article: “Though it seems counterintuitive – global warming bringing about extreme cold – the answer may be yes, according to scientists like Weather Underground’s Dr. Jeff Masters and Dr. Jennifer Francis.”

1974: The science is settled, by (the same) Time Magazine: “Polar Vortex caused by global cooling”.

Scientists have found other indications of global cooling. For one thing there has been a noticeable expansion of the great belt of dry, high-altitude polar winds —the so-called circumpolar vortex—that sweep from west to east around the top and bottom of the world.

2014, real scientists: “they’ re all full of crap.”

Princeton Physicist Dr. Will Happer refutes claims that global warming is causing record cold: ‘Polar vortices have been around forever. They have almost nothing to do with more CO2 in the atmosphere’

Meteorologist Dr. Ryan Maue rejects claim that global warming is causing record cold: ‘This polar vortex episode is the global warming media’s most recent ‘Snapchat’ message: after a few seconds, explanation just dissolves’

You can smell the putrefaction of sweaty desperation from the bleachers.

    From your second (Time “Science” editor/Climate Change Could Be the Cause of Record Cold Weather) link: “Climate change skeptics are pointing to the record cold weather as evidence that the globe isn’t warming. But it could be that melting Arctic ice is making sudden cold snaps more likely—not less”

    Another fine example of the all to frequent non sequitur, false initial premise trickery. “… Melting arctic ice is making sudden cold snaps more likely? …” Trouble is, arctic ice is accumulating not melting. Guess they thought no one would notice. The voice of authority from the Land of Officialdom speaks again. I hear and I obey — not.

    Not only that, AJ, but the poor widdle polar bears are bounced back as the food chain cycles wax plentiful. Our leftist cousins have dropped the “drowning polar bear” meme along with AGW.

    “Why, it’s New! It’s Improved! It’s the… POLAR VOR! TEXXX!!!

    Yeah right. “Polar Vortex” = Swirling the Porcelain.

    I’ve been basking in the glow of schadenfreude ever since professor Mann’s fake Hockey Stick got rammed up his equatorial vortex.

    Spock thought there would be another ice age way back in 1977!
