The Washington Post says cold winters are caused by disrupted Polar Vortex, which is caused by global warming. And three weeks ago they said Americans are “winter starved.”
Here is their diagram showing what global warming has done to the Polar Vortex.
What a ‘wrecked’ polar vortex means for winter-starved Americans
Here is the same diagram from Science News in 1975, which showed what global cooling did to the Polar Vortex.
The Washington Post said colder winters indicated a disastrous new ice age which would begin as early as 2021.

U.S. Scientist Sees New Ice Age Coming
“Winter starved Americans” are facing the coldest February since 1936.
A meridional jet stream pattern can happen anytime. It can flip from strongly zonal to strongly meridional within a week, and a couple of weeks later back to zonal within a week. Weaker solar wind conditions causing negative Arctic Oscillation conditions causes the meridional circulation pattern, but a slow incremental rise in CO2 forcing cannot drive such variability, and is of the wrong sign to cause a meridional jet stream, as it is expected to increase positive Arctic Oscillation conditions.
I noticed that Victor Cohns’ article says “a new ice age would flood the world’s coastal cities . . .” I’m a bit confused. Based upon what climate alarmists/scientists are saying, I thought a new warm age would flood the world’s coastal cities. Which is it?
Obviously it is both, according to the experts.
The only choice is do we want ice in our water.?
But … but … but … John Holdren (Obama’s science advisor) said more cold brings more global warming … https://newtube.app/user/RAOB/3fEZDK4
It’s funny how Global warming is so easy to support but when faced with cold data people think your nuts. Unless it’s so hot we are dying I have no problem with warm weather and higher co2 to support life. It’s just people trying to scam everyone for power and money. The miracle of being just the right distance from the sun. A little closer or further away would be bad. it’s amazing. Build a greenhouse and have more control over the climate your plants grow in.
Oh. I don’t think you meant it this way, but, not my nuts.
Unless you mean “Ppl think you are nuts.” You can use an often misunderstood contraction for the “you are” thusly: “you’re”.
If you believe in models, how about the one that was run 10,000 times and predicted that the Kansas City Chiefs would beat the Tampa Bay Bucs by 3 points and that the total of all scores for both teams would be 56 points.
“Top model leaning over in Chiefs vs. Buccaneers”
“SportsLine’s computer model simulated Buccaneers vs. Chiefs in Super Bowl LV 10,000 times with surprising results”
“the model changed its pick after simulating the big game 10,000 times.”
Most authors and researchers even conflate an algorithm or mathematical equation for a ‘model’ per se, which for me would invoke something known as ‘first principles’ in physics, such as using the defined unit of time, the acceleration constant of gravity, the known charge of the electron, Maxwell’s equations and so forth …
When the real world messes with your poorly thought out global climate change theory that is based on the addition of 2 CO2 molecules per 10,000 other molecules in the atmosphere, you just pile on more outlandish subroutines to explain why the failed theory really isn’t failing, thus we develop the polar vortex shift theory. Whatever happened to Occam’s Razor where the simplest solution is the correct solution: There is no global warming.
Oh and I love these “Why the billy goat ate the tin can” articles where a journalist tries to explain some random phenomenon that is not scientifically predictable.
Back in 2004, CC or C/AGW was claiming the warmer winters were due to global winters confining the polar vortex to the polar regions. Eventually, the polar vortex would just fade away. So much so CC was proclaiming the ” End of Winter “, ” Winter’s last Hurrah ” . So now the polar vortex is wavy and it’s bitter cold, global warming.
CC has an explanation for everything. Oh, the glacier behind you house…
The Washington Post is starved for objective reporting and honesty.
I love the NOAA picture of a Christmas pudding with brandy sauce running down. Just strike a match for global warming…
