The Symptoms Of Global Warming And Global Cooling Are Identical

Climate experts blamed this past record cold winter in the east, on an expanded polar vortex caused by global warming and Arctic ice loss.

For years, climate contrarians have pointed to snowfall and cold weather to question the scientific reality of human-induced climate change.  Such misinformation obscures the work scientists are doing to figure out just how climate change is affecting weather patterns year-round.

The Arctic connection and the polar vortex: A look at recent North American winters
Winters have generally been warming faster than other seasons in the United States and recent research indicates that climate change is disrupting the Arctic and ice around the North Pole.

The Arctic summer sea ice extent broke all records during the end of the 2012 sea ice melt season. Some researchers are pointing to a complex interplay between Arctic sea ice decline, ocean patterns, upper winds, and the shifting shape of the jet stream that could lead to extreme weather in various portions of northern mid-latitudes — such that some places get tons of snow repeatedly and others are unseasonably warm.

In the Arctic, frigid air is typically trapped in a tight loop known as the polar vortex. This super-chilled air is not only cold, it also tends to have low barometric pressure compared to the air outside the vortex. The surrounding high-pressure zones push in on the vortex from all sides so the cold air is essentially “fenced in” above the Arctic, where it belongs.

As the Arctic region warms faster than most other places, however, the Arctic sea ice melts more rapidly and for longer periods each year, and is unable to replenish itself in the briefer, warmer winter season. This can destabilize the polar vortex and raises the barometric pressure within it.

It’s Cold and My Car is Buried in Snow. Is Global Warming Really Happening? | Union of Concerned Scientists

They sound so sincere!  Only problem is that they blamed very similar winters in the 1970s on global cooling, and Arctic ice gain.

Telltale signs are everywhere —from the unexpected persistence and thickness of pack ice in the waters around Iceland to the southward migration of a warmth-loving creature like the armadillo from the Midwest.Since the 1940s the mean global temperature has dropped about 2.7° F. Although that figure is at best an estimate, it is supported by other convincing data. When Climatologist George J. Kukla of Columbia University’s Lamont-Doherty Geological Observatory and his wife Helena analyzed satellite weather data for the Northern Hemisphere, they found that the area of the ice and snow cover had suddenly increased by 12% in 1971 and the increase has persisted ever since. Areas of Baffin Island in the Canadian Arctic, for example, were once totally free of any snow in summer; now they are covered year round.

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. Indeed it is the widening of this cap of cold air that is the immediate cause of Africa’s drought. By blocking moisture-bearing equatorial winds and preventing them from bringing rainfall to the parched sub-Sahara region, as well as other drought-ridden areas stretching all the way from Central America to the Middle East and India, the polar winds have in effect caused the Sahara and other deserts to reach farther to the south. Paradoxically, the same vortex has created quite different weather quirks in the U.S. and other temperate zones. As the winds swirl around the globe, their southerly portions undulate like the bottom of a skirt. Cold air is pulled down across the Western U.S. and warm air is swept up to the Northeast. The collision of air masses of widely differing temperatures and humidity can create violent storms—the Midwest’s recent rash of disastrous tornadoes, for example.

In 1977 National Geographic also blamed the almost identical weather pattern as 2015 – on global cooling.

People like the “Union of Concerned Scientists” sound so sincere and serious, but in fact they are simply propagandists who write sciency sounding stuff to fool politicians, journalists and other global warming useful idiots.

  1. Very good article!

    One of the small things i noticed was the words satellite and 1971 on the same sentence. Again, why do the official graphs start in 1979 for ice extent in the Arctic?

    the snowmobiling was great here in maine during winter 76-77.
    77-78 was not too bad either but 76-77 had a drier “colder” snow that the machines liked better.
    I was only 8-9 yrs old so don’t remember much about the talk and news reports, just know they said it was cooling.
    always found it peculiar how they attribute the exact same symptoms to 2 different items.

    The EPA is working diligently to answer one of the more basic questions, and I’m sure they’ll respond quite soon ;-)

    Thank you for submitting your question or comment to EPA.

    Subject: Interglacial Longevity
    Question: Greetings,
    I am interested in the current longevity of this inter-glacial period and curious if there are any estimates on how long the AGW conditions will hold off the next advancement cycle in glaciation.

    Thank you,

    Climate science has become a bunko-booth of fraud. Caught in a trap of empirical contradictions they have nothing left but to lie again and again to perpetuate their religion and reputations. Hilarious and gravely dispiriting all at once.

  5. B says:

    One of the primary duties of a priest class in human society is to frighten people into obeying authority. They deliberately mislead people regarding things like climate to achieve that. Thousands of years and nothing really changes.

  6. Stephen Richards says:

    HHLamb described the deeper dips in the jet stream and said they were almost certainly due to global cooling

    Tony, Time also ran an earlier story on a coming ice age. Nov 13, 1972: Science: Another Ice Age.,9171,910467,00.html

    Would be good if you could track down the full article like you have done the 1974 article
