For those few remaining global warmists who wonder why the rest of us just don’t get it, CBS provides the answer: when any weather phenomenon whatsoever is claimed to be caused by global warming, even the least skeptical of rational minds is forced to conclude that a panicked desperation has set in among those whose living and government grants depend on the disproved theory.
So today CBS tells us, again, that our recent snowstorms are the direct result of global warming. The warmest liars can’t even get and keep their stories straight, yet we’re somehow supposed to believe that they’re real scientists offering objective facts? A spoon bender as “expert”? Are you friggin’ kidding me??!!
[Charlie Rose ] Guest Michio Kaku, a physics professor from New York City College–not a climatologist, but a physicist–[ and not just any physicist but a Paranormal “expert who beeves in time travel, photographing dreams and bending spoons with will power] claimed that the “wacky weather” could get “even wackier” and its all because of global warming. “What we’re seeing is that the jet stream and the polar vortex are becoming unstable. Instability of historic proportions. We think it’s because of the gradual heating up of the North Pole. The North Pole is melting,” professor Kaku said.
“That excess heat generated by all this warm water is destabilizing this gigantic bucket of cold air… So that’s the irony, that heating could cause gigantic storms of historic proportions,” the prof explained.
This was all because of global warming, Rose insisted.
Kaku went on to say that the weather “instabilities” we are seeing are because of the “erratic nature of the jet stream” and the “polar vortex.”
Kaku also said that it is too late to change any of this:
Well, the bad news is that the north polar region continues to rise in temperature, it seems to be irreversible at a certain point, so we may have to get used to a new normal. That is, a north polar region that is melting, causing more instability in this bucket, causing more things to spill out, which means more extremes. Some winters could be very mild, other winters could be horrendous.
According to The Weather Channel, the Polar Vortex is not the sort of weather system that directly affects the surface. In fact, the polar vortex is an upper atmosphere system, not one that impacts directly on the surface of the earth.
CBS Host Norah O’Donnell also took the occasion of the discussion to claim that 2014 will be the hottest summer ever.
But I absolutely agree with the professor that it’s too friggin’ late to do anything about this, just as Al Gore and Prince Charles and NASA Muppet Master Jim Hansen have repeatedly claimed (and the had to extend deadlines when the world failed to end). Let’s relax, calm down, stopping paying for useless gestures to put off what can’t be put off and have some fun on the beach. Who’s got the sun tan oil?
UPDATE: Two broadcasters in one! Chris R sends along this article detailing CBS’s own reporter debunking the network’s claim that warm weather in Sochi is due to global warming. Sochi enjoys a “sub-tropical” climate, and worries about warm weather were expressed by organizers long before the television cameras and nut bus showed up.
