See that white stuff floating down past the orange trees and landing on your alligators and manatees, Florida? That's global warming, that is.
See that frozen white thing by the harbor that used to look a green woman with a spiky headdress, New York? That's global warming, that is.
See that chilling solid yellow stream extending upwards from the snowy ground to your shrivelling blackened member after you made the very wrong call to take an al fresco leak, Chicagoans? That's global warming, that is.
How do we know this? Because Bryan Walsh of Time magazine says so:
But not only does the cold spell not disprove climate change, it may well be that global warming could be making the occasional bout of extreme cold weather in the U.S. even more likely. Right now much of the U.S. is in the grip of a polar vortex, which is pretty much what it sounds like: a whirlwind of extremely cold, extremely dense air that forms near the poles. Usually the fast winds in the vortexwhich can top 100 mph (161 k/h)keep that cold air locked up in the Arctic. But when the winds weaken, the vortex can begin to wobble like a drunk on his fourth martini, and the Arctic air can escape and spill southward, bringing Arctic weather with it. In this case, nearly the entire polar vortex has tumbled southward, leading to record-breaking cold .
And, of course, so does the Guardian say so .
While the ongoing cold snap is breaking records from Minnesota to Florida, it will not go down in history as the most significant Arctic outbreak in U.S. history, not even by a longshot. Scientists said the deep freeze gripping the U.S. does not indicate a halt or reversal in global warming trends, either....

Warm globally, cool locally!
(That’s for the Warmunistas.)

I have no idea who this guy is, but I am getting that book!
"... the purest cruel-harvested baby squid ink.."
I almost spotted myself there.
Bryan Walsh - TIME magazine
On Monday's CBS This Morning, Charlie Rose predictably placed the blame for the unusually cold weather in North America on climate change. Rose wondered, "Is it definitely connected to global warming?"
Rose and co-anchor Norah O'Donnell turned to climate change alarmist Bryan Walsh of Time magazine, who only cited vague "theories...that some of the warming...you're seeing up in the Arctic might be changing the atmospheric circulation in that part of the world...and maybe, makes these cold spells a little more likely than they otherwise be."

The year before the 1900 Hurricane, TX GOM folks had the seawaters iced over.
King of northers arrived in 1899(Texas)
...The oasis of warmth in the state was at Corpus Christi, which registered a balmy 11 degrees above zero.
We were 50 miles down Laguna Madre (when the storm hit). We were iced in. The Laguna had frozen over.”
The second week in January is always the coldest in FLA. We are wearing our northern sweaters that we kept when we moved here 10 years ago.(inside our house) 2-3 years ago it was worse than now.

A Time.com article by Bryan Walsh encouraged readers to go to an environmentalist Web site because it might be their last chance to see the “polar world.”
“Man your computers - GlobalWarming101.com might give you a last glimpse of a dying polar world,” Walsh wrote on February 22.
The Web site is run by Will Steger, who identified himself as an author, photographer and “ceaseless advocate for the Earth’s well being.”
“To help raise awareness of the damage climate change is wreaking on the polar regions, next month Steger will be leading a team of six young adventurers on a 1,400-mile, 60-day-long dogsled expedition across Ellesmere Island, in the far Canadian Arctic,” wrote Walsh.
Senior Writer for Time magazine, covering energy and the environment
“I graduated from Princeton University, and went East, arriving in Hong Kong, where I worked as an intern and then a staff report for TIME magazine’s Asia edition. I stayed in Hong Kong for five years, writing about everything from Chinese sex toys to Filipino boxers, before I settled on science and health. I reported on the SARS epidemic and bird flu threat, as well as Asia’s growing pollution problem. I spent a year as the Tokyo bureau chief for TIME before moving to New York in 2007, where I’ve lived since. I now write about energy and the environment, and blog at TIME’s Ecocentric site.”
These guys could talk a dog off a meat wagon.
“Exactly what impact a warming planet will have on extreme weather isnt clear. While a warmer atmosphere can hold more moisture, which can mean more intense rainfall and storms, the most recent assessment from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change didnt find strong evidence that tropical storms were increasing in frequency or intensity as the climate changed. Not every scientific study is so sanguinea 2013 study from hurricane expert Kerry Emanuel predicted that tropical storms would become more both more frequent and more intense. But regardless of the effects of climate change, a growing planet that puts more people and property in the way of storms and floods is one that is increasingly vulnerable to extreme weather. The unextreme weather of 2013 is almost certainly an outlier.”

Bryan Walsh is a senior editor at TIME.
Such a waste of what could have been a good education.
How does a blog have a senior editor?
Sounds like (Maine expression):
His breath could knock a buzzard off a sh!+ wagon.
The RATs are going to hold Summer hostage maybe we can just pay someone to plant trees.
So the “polar vortex” is nothing but a wobbly drunk! That’s what I’m talkin’ about!
Wind is weakening in the Arctic. Why?
Does this have something to do with windmills? They have to draw wind from someplace.
I say, stop the windmills and the winds will return from whence they came. The Arctic.
Why should the globull warmists have all the fun. We can be as goofy too with our theories.
#8: Didn’t this expedition have to be rescued because of extreme cold and snow?
I wonder if this young shithead remembers the twin 18 inch snows of December/January 1987 in DC? Couldn’t find my car. In fact, couldn’t get to it for a week (had moved just before the storms hit so it remained at the old house).
We had one helluva storm in in Baltimore in 1960 that stopped the streetcars from running as well as the buses taking us home from school. I should have stayed on that bus - the girl next to me was pretty and friendly, but, no, my friends wanted to walk several miles to home.
The night before the JFK inauguration, 9 inches of snow. My Bar mitzvah in 1958, 6 inches of snow. A month later in March, 9 inches of snow. Never did have a real reception for friends and the shual.
A guess this was all because of global warming. Wish I had know it back then. Would have made me a smart and rich (Al Gore) man.
oooh, this guy is good
I've read all the theories. One the fundamental problems with all of them is that a couple degrees of warming has taken place at the surface in the Arctic but the polar vortex is in the stratosphere and there is no connection other than weather which is exactly what the cold snap was. If anything, the Arctic warmth will lead to less severe Arctic cold and that is a good thing in anybody's book (with the exception of drooling idiots of course).
Bring lots of chili powder, curry powder, etc because the dog will be very gamey.
Nothing like a science writer with no education in science. I have to assume that Princeton degree is in something like Journalism or English.
Chinese sex toys?
So the media states that Polar vortex causes global cooling AND global warming. Which is it? Or is it both?

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...
