As Predicted, The Next Global Warming Scam Has Arrived

James Delingpole, Marc Morano and myself predicted last week that the New York Times and other climate scamsters would start their polar vortex scam this week. They delivered right on schedule.

    CO2 is such an amazing molecule. When is it going to get its own Nobel prize?

  2. Robertv says:

    Yep, the end is near. Maybe they can blame Putin for it.

  3. AndyG55 says:

    Wow, I wonder if the polar vortex existed before CO2 warming became a meme.?

    • Gail Combs says:

      No it did not. All that cold air coming straight out of the Arctic hitting the USA was the Polar Express when I was a kid. So see, the polar vortex is something completely new. Just ask Griff.

      • Steve Keohane says:

        Ditto for me too Gail, it was the ‘Polar Express’, and the rest of what you say…

      • garyh845 says:

        Oh heck – I remembered it as the Arctic Express. Or was that the “Arctic freeze your little butts off blast.” Which reminds me – doesn’t seem like these ‘blasts’ reach as far south as they used to . . back when the citrus crops froze in the Rio Grande Valley, in TX, and deep in central and south Florida?

        Which reminds me of this blog post I ran across regarding the ‘Great Arctic Outbreak of 1899’ in the Rio Grande Valley, which is considered the worst of all time by this palm grower:

        When comparing freezes, the question is inevitably asked as to which freeze(s) were the worst. That, of course, is an often subjective question. The worst freeze for a meteorologist may be entirely different than one for a citrus or palm grower. Even if one were to look at nothing but the data, there is still some room for debate when ranking the freezes. If I were asked to come up with such a list, I would have to take several factors into consideration. Absolute minimum temperatures, number of hours below freezing, number of consecutive hours in a “deep freeze” (mid-twenties or below), and conditions during the coldest temperatures (i.e., wind speed and cloudiness) would all be factors. Using that criteria, there are three or four freezes which really stand out. The Great Arctic Outbreak of 1899 would easily top the list, it simply has no equal. Coming in second would have to be 1989, with the longer (but less cold) freeze of the 1880-1 a pretty close third. After that, the four similar freezes of 1852, 1873, 1888, and 1983 are all contenders for fourth place, with 1888 getting the nod since it apparently had more hours in the low twenties.

        I remember the infamous Alberta Clipper. But what do I know, I grew up in South Carolina :-)

      • Stewart Pid says:

        Arctic outbreak was the common line growing up in the Great White North … take off, eh!

      • Caleb says:

        In New England we called it “The Montreal Express”.

  4. Latitude says:

    …how long until they start naming them

  5. Robertv says:

    Florida will be too small for all those climate refugees.

  6. Beto In Austin says:

    Megafauna frozen in the field with flowers in their mouths had blurted out VORTEX…and died..

  7. Ron Clutz says:

    Judah Cohen at AER has a more credible explanation.

      • AndyG55 says:

        Wow. Jimbo can type a google search

        MUCH progress from the brainless twerp !!

      • AndyG55 says:

        Is this the NEXT fabricated MEME ???

        Certainly looks like they know that COOLING is coming and are trying to SCAM/CON their way out of it. !!

        Its another SCAM/CON……… no wonder its attached Jimbo

    • Caleb says:

      Interesting link, Ron. Thanks.

      Personally I think our ability to grasp all the inputs into the chaotic system we call “weather” is small. The Creator made a creation that is wonderfully subtle and complex. However I greatly enjoy attempting to link together the cause-and-effects, as if the system was some sort of Rube Goldberg contraption.

      My own take is that the “Quiet Sun” supplied less energy, and less energy resulted in weaker winds, and weaker Trade Winds stimulated the El Nino, which resulted in more heat at the surface of the sea. Now, how’s that for double-speak? “Less energy creates more energy.”

      Once you have extra energy down at the equator the planet wants to balance things out, so you get a jet rushing up to the Pole, where the mild air loses its heat, often forming a low pressure spiraling heat up to the tropopause, (the low pressure my whimsy dubbed “Ralph”.) Because the general background is colder due to the “Quiet Sun,” the contrast between the warm equator and the colder background is larger, so the jet is stronger, bringing more mild air to the Pole. Resultant double-speak? “Colder sunshine makes warmer Pole.”

      Once you have the mildness bumping up into polar air, the polar air gets nudged down into Siberia, causing the early and extensive snowpack to form, which links into the ideas you share. Resultant double-speak? “Warmer Pole makes colder subtropics.”

      Lastly, the pattern is an effective way to lose heat and balance things out, for heat is lost in two ways, by radiation in the air that is transported north to the Pole, and by reflection due to the high albedo of fresh snow extending further south. (I haven’t figured out a double-speak for this yet, but call it “The Double Whammy”.)

      This is of course over-simplified. What really blows me away is the complexity involved in every little detail. It is a wonder to witness.

      It looks like another rush of mildness to the Pole will refuel “Ralph” up there in time for Christmas, so we can expect the usual round of “The Pole Is Melting And Santa is Drowning” headlines, though “mildness” is a relative word up there and temperatures should be well below freezing.

      • Robertv says:

        Just like a fireplace. The bigger and hotter the fire, the more cold, oxygen-rich air is sucked in.

        • Caleb says:

          Yes, but the colder the weather gets, the better the fireplace draws. I blame the Quiet Sun for making things colder, which draws the milder air north faster.

      • ЯΞ√ΩLUT↑☼N says:

        One of the IPCC reports said:

        “The climate system is a coupled non-linear chaotic system, and therefore the long-term prediction of future climate states is not possible.”

        I believe the best model to predict anything climate related would be observing the swirly patterns in a soap bubble, which is probably what they do anyway, costing billions and call it “Climate Science ©®™”.

        Point a light bulb at it and see what happens.

  8. Password Protected says:

    I think a large portion of rational people will disregard the ‘global warming causes cooling’ claim, even if its called climate change. It’s just too counter-intuitive.

  9. Jim Hunt says:

    James Delingpole, Marc Morano and yourself evidently haven’t got the faintest idea what you’re talking about.

    Neither, it appears, has Ron.

    WACCy or what?

    • Scott Allen says:

      WOW finally a voice of reason and well though out rhetorical prose.

      No wait I am just kidding, I sit here freezing my baguettes off (it 8 degrees outside) but I am better off then the idiots in England who have gone completely off of coal (an inexpensive easy to obtain product in England) because of wing nuts like you. The people of England have switch from coal to biomass to run there generators and heat their houses. What is bio mass you ask its is trees cut down in Sweden and the eastern US and shipped (using large amount of fuel at an enormous expense) to the former great empire of England, just so some politician can say they care about the environment.

      and Jim don’t think you and your friends and Obama are any better, Obama just authorized the wind companies the free reign to kill as many bald and golden eagles as they see fit.

      i had a college professor of constitutional law tell us “you can worship the head of a sardine, just don’t make me worship it too.” so Jim worship all you want.

      • Robertv says:

        But isn’t that the progressive way to create (useless) jobs and be proud of it. Of Course they like wars too as a big stimulus for industry.

    • AndyG55 says:

      They predicted. It happened..

      It seems they have FAR MORE IDEA of what is going on than you ever will, Jimbo.

      Your IGNORANCE precedes and follows you everywhere.

      • rw says:

        Come to think of it, their predictions are a lot better than the IPCC’s. (I guess that means that people are simpler than the climate.)

    • gator69 says:

      Looks like Jim is shooting for eight million this year!

    • Tim A says:

      Can’t wait ’til your govie breast milk dries up….it’s gonna be hard to dig a ditch with those baby-butt soft hands of yours. Do you even know which is the working end of a shovel? (Shoveling BS isn’t the same thing BTW)….

  10. Eric Simpson says:

    “The kind of extreme cold being experienced by much of the United States as we speak is a pattern we can expect to see with increasing frequency, as global warming continues.” -John Holdren, Obama’s Science Czar, 2014

    This is the same guy that in 1970s thought we were headed into ice age, and then a few years later thought billions of us would boil to death with 25 years:

    “A billion people could die from global warming by 2020.” -John Holdren 1986

  11. annieoakley says:

    Holdren has never been right with any prediction he has made. Why does he even have a job?

  12. Robertv says:

    Like record Antarctic sea ice high and low are both because of global warming

  13. rw says:

    I think these guys are going to find out that the global warming produces freezing weather meme won’t take them all that far. Not if they have to keep using it year after year.

  14. Brent Chapman says:

    So their saying when global warming completely takes hold we will freeze to death?

  15. pseudo-intellectual says:

    What do the warmists say our winters would look like if not for global warming? Are we not supposed to have occasional cold, blizzards, etc.?
