Global warming may be contributing to the "polar vortex" causing frigid temperatures across most of the nation on Monday, according to some climate change researchers.

RUSH: So, ladies and gentlemen, we are having a record-breaking cold snap in many parts of the country. And right on schedule the media have to come up with a way to make it sound like it's completely unprecedented. Because they've got to find a way to attach this to the global warming agenda, and they have. It's called the "polar vortex." The dreaded polar vortex.
Do you know what the polar vortex is? Have you ever heard of it? Well, they just created it for this week. Actually, there is a piece. I've got a piece in the Stack that actually makes the case that all of this frigid, chilling cold is due to global warming, strange as it may sound, it says. Other wackos are saying it's a great example of climate change, but regardless, the agenda is that we're responsible, we're causing it, we have to pay the price. And so any weather extreme now is said to be man-made, and therefore it fulfills the leftist agenda on this. http://www.rushlimbaugh.com/daily/2014/01/06/left_creates_polar_vortex_to_make_you_think_winter_is_caused_by_global_warming
How do they purpose to get rid of it? Global cooling? Frickin’ jackwagons...
Channel 7 WABC news “Polar Vortex blamed for 15 deaths”
Here in Ohio, it has been significantly colder than this several times over the past 30 years. Yes, -15 degrees is cold. It isn’t unprecedentedly cold however. And yes, the wind chill makes it worse but that isn’t anything new either. 30 years ago they called it “global cooling”. Now they call it global warming. I call it winter weather.
I searched for Winter 1977, it was a record for Ohio. I was cold here in Tri state area. I recall the Polluted Hudson River was freezing somewhat off Hudson County & Manhattan.
The blizzard of 1978 was pretty bad too.
OK!! Everybody pay attention!
Lesson for today:
1. The sun is 1,300,000 times as big as the earth.
2. The sun is a ball of fire that controls the climates of all its planets.
3. The earth is one of the suns planets.
4. The earth is a speck in comparison to the size of the sun.
5. Inhabitants of the earth are less than specks.
Study Question: How do less-than-specks in congress plan to control the sun?
They,ve got it backwards..... there has been fewer in recent decades, so if anything GW is causing Fewer arctic breakouts
Everything is the result of global warming.
The Cult of Global Warming must always stay one stupid ahead of their fellow Globalists, The Cult of Free Trade. Scary is that many in both GOP and DNC are in both
Is this the new official measurement of global anything? Me likey.
Vortex ? Ain’t into it.
Been watching and reading news for years....decades, even. Suddenly the lefties want to come up with a new phrase to explain their epic fail.
Polar vortex my ass.
LOL! Is that real? A weatherman with a sense of humor!
Wear Goretex for the Vortex
Only in the minds of cultists could higher temperatures cause lower ones. I consider myself a man of science, but man does not cause climate change.
“Polar Vortex”? Obviously the extreme cold has frozen the brains of the “God of Global Warming” worshiping nutcases.
It is 14 degrees here in DEEP SOUTH MISSISSIPPI this morning and I would kick the snot out of any so-called globull warming scientist stating to my face that this was the result of globull warming. I want these criminals exposed, charged, prosecuted and JAILED under the RICO Act!
I’m in Steubenville and school is cancelled due to -27º temp with wind chill.
In 2013 you advocated massive Government intervention in trade.
But at least you kept it on threads about ... trade.
However 2014 is a new year!
Now you apparently believe that the only reason FR isn’t enthusiastically backing a huge tariff-fueled increase in Government is because you haven’t been spamming enough unrelated threads.
The operative word here, people, is 'researchers', an apt translation of which might be 'people who don't know'.
Thanks to Rush for explaining the polar vortex. He got his material from Business Insider. This vortex is perfectly normal and its fluctuations have nothing to do with global warming
by raising your energy bills and using the money to plant trees,
when they replace the money which they will fritter away
with more taxes on energy
“Study Question: How do less-than-specks in congress plan to control the sun?”
by following obama’s executive orders
It’s 17 here in Mobile with the wind chill in the single digits! BRRRRRRRR! Hey though, I guess that’s almost tropical compared to what’s happening up North.
Global warming may be contributing to the “polar vortex”, but the cause of Global Warming is Global Cooling.
We didn't listen!
To call these political operatives “reseachers” is an insult to all researchers. They are shills for the glo-BULL warming industry of climate-change idiots.
In reality, the polar vortex is merely an old fasioned trough
Throughs have been missing for a few years but as of today, at least one is back. The little red weather icon says -1
that’s what winter troughs do. They bring cold air to the lower 48
Only twisted fools can embrace this.
Simple elementary education teaches this is not true.
Idiots are being targeted with this crap.
The bag of hammers has a higher IQ.
Yes, Globull warming is behind the Polar Vortex. And racism is the cause of Global Warming.(Sarcasm off)
I asked my son, who has a meteorology degree about this. He said it was nothing new—there’s always a big cap of cold air over the North Pole in Winter. Sometimes it spills into Siberia, sometimes it spills into Canada. It’s not like the mythical tropospheric hurricanes of “The Day After Tomorrow.”
What is new, apparently, is that the media has seized on a new magic fright phrase—polar vortex.
After all, it's turtles all the way down.
It’s 4.6 degrees F in beautiful, downtown Davidsonville, MD. While that is unusually cold for these climes, it’s hardly unheard of. A quick search reveals that the record low in this little hamlet in Maryland is -8 degrees F, set in 1984.
Did you know you can unplug your fridge, burn logs in it, and the meat will freeze quickly? It’s a Global Warming FACT!
Well, it's progress. It used to be that everything was the result of George W. Bush.
There is simply no way. Were the Pleistocene-era Wisconsin glaciation to re-occur, they would still be blaming global warming.
You were good up until number 5.
The entire issue here is thermodynamics. You can construct and experiment that accurately mirrors the solar system along the lines of steps 1-4. Get a box, cut a small hole at the top and shove an incandescent bulb through it. Put eight rocks at varying distances from the bulb. Measure the temps on the rocks.
All of the energy within each of the rocks that is stored can only be transferred, and as time increases, the energy remaining in those rocks approaches zero.
No new energy, save for the Sun’s energy, is being added to any of the rocks.
As for using relative size to determine how much damage you can do to a system, consider the size of a virus and how much damage it can do to a human.
About the size of Micky Rooney.
But if the American people can be suckered into believing that somehow us not burning carbon based fuels will make the planet a more wonderful place (despite costing extra, not to mention everyone else using them), suddenly, a few people stand to make a huge (trillions of dollars huge) amount of money.
Our only hope is to continue to debase the currency fast enough the carbon credit holders give up and let us burn the worthless FRNs to keep warm.
Carbon Exchange? Kind of like Al Gore’s Bitcoin.
The lefties have just discovered the Polar Vortex...it ain't new. The polar vortex has been around since the beginning of time. Ignorance is the only reason we are having this discussion. The left needs a new excuse so they discovered what has always been there and are using it as the latest excuse. Many on the right (like Rush) had never heard of it either and now think its some made up term...and the American people (unless they pay close attention to a real forecaster (not news babe doing weather)) has also never heard of is...which allows for easy duping.
The term "polar vortex" has been a meteorological term LONG before I started forecasting...and that was almost 27 years ago. It's used just like the term "jet stream" or high pressure is. It's a commonly heard term in forecast discussion during the winter. The trick in medium-long range forecasting (in winter) has ALWAYS been trying to figure out how far south the polar vortex would get dislodged. Every time (and let me repeat that with EMPHASIS)....EVERY TIME it has EVER gotten VERY COLD in the US...it has been because of the polar vortex moving south and buckling the jet stream...which pulls the arctic/siberian air southward. And MOST times it is accompanied by a warm up in Alaska and western Canada...because to move the polar vortex south...you need a big ridge of high pressure to form to its west (normally).
As a meteorologist...I'm getting a big kick out of this polar vortex talk...that some people think its a made up phrase...and others think its a man made devil.
Cant the government do something? /sarc
